Publisher's Summary

Ben Greenwood is continuing his apprenticeship at the Royal Institute of Magic, hoping things will be slightly less complicated now that he has advanced to the second grade.

Fat chance.

Coupled with the sterner challenges that the second grade brings, there is also the small matter of the impending dark elf invasion, making life at the Institute even busier than usual. Ben is the only one who can stop them, by finding Elizabeth's armor and its Guardians.

Ben has retrieved one piece of the armor - the boots - but the rest remain hidden. He has just one clue, which could lead to Elizabeth's helm: an old black and white photo given to him by the Master of Apprentices.

Ben must split his time between his apprenticeship and searching for the helm, before the dark elves strike and all hell breaks loose.

Finally comparable to Harry Potter

If you could sum up The Protectors in three words, what would they be?

Way too good!

Who was your favorite character and why?

The entire cast

What does Peter Kenny bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He adds a richness that was missing when I read it myself.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It was very hard to wait for the next book when I’d finished the previous. My heart was definitely warmed and there were many laugh out loud moments.

Any additional comments?

Since Harry Potter, every young adult sci fi title says they are comparable to J.K Rowlings creations. This series finally makes this claim a real one. Maybe I didn’t become as entrance as I had been by my Harry but it was really close. Anyone who is searching for their fix, will be satisfied with this series. I Loved It! The world is definitely a better place because this series exists and a sadder place because there will never be anymore from this really gifted author.

I was there until the second heroine...

I was there until the second heroine was also incredibly petite, gorgeous, and frail looking. So a hero can be chubby and awkward but a heroine can’t be? So over these delicate flowers who are amazing dynamos beneath but also irrationally emotional at the most bizarre times. It fantasy. So let me imagine the chunky girl is adored and considered beautiful and a heroine. The petite waif being drooled over and cosseted is a pretty stark reality.
