A wonderful start to the Influence series.

Reviewer: Teresa Fallen Angel

Summary:
At first I was confused until I realized that Humanity’s Protectors takes place thirty years before the Influence series begins.

At sixteen. Leevah was forced to leave home and work for the corporation to use her abilities to influence the public into their way of thinking. That is until they asked her to manipulate a crowd in ways that was against what she thought was right. Unfortunately, her one action of defiance changed everything. She began to question everything she believed leaving her struggling to survive. What she found left her fighting to find who she could trust and if there was any place safe.

This was an incredible novella that came to live in the audio-book format.

Short yet Surprising!

As a novella, this isn't meant to be long, and is just the origin story or 'prequel' of sorts for the story. Still, even picky as I am about novellas, I enjoyed this one, the narration and writing style were engaging, and I can't wait to discover more of this series!

I wanted more.

This was a good introduction, but it was too short to be of much use. I wanted more. Lol

Fast Paced and Full of Action


Taking place 30 years before Influence and just as the world is beginning to realize what Influencers can do, Humanity's Protectors is a short novella about Leeyah who is working for a cushy corporation job. But today she is asked to do something that goes against her ethics and when she says no her whole world spins out of control.

Fast paced and full of action this is a great prequel to the events in Influence and can be read either before or after the first book. The audible edition comes with a sneak peak at Influence at the end of the novella.

Humanity vs. Influence

I enjoyed this novella. It is very fast paced. I was in shock at one point, but it quickly slapped me in the face. This is set in a Dystopian type of setting. The FMC works as an Influencer for the government. There is also a rebel faction called Humanity's Protectors. The Protectors are made up of individuals that have special abilities that use to be Influencers. The Protectors want Leeyah to join them because of her powers. Can't wait to see what the next book has to offer.

Humanity protectors

This audiobook is full of action as poor Leeyah, still in her teens find out that her job doesn't have a leave option. She has special abilities that make her a asset or a threat but who can she trust and what do they want from her. It is well read and can easily have a follow up story.
