Publisher's Summary

Katie Maddison never wanted to learn how to kick a demon's ass, all she was doing was helping a fellow university student with his Chem homework.

She just trusted people too much.

Now, she will be the new weapon in a war she had no idea existed with warriors wielding both weapons and supernatural abilities.

Demon Hunters, Demon Fighters ... Known as The Damned.

People possessed by Demons, but still remaining in control of their bodies.

One of the most powerful Demon's in Hell can't defeat his sister, so he sets her up to be sacrificed and killed.

The only problem? The human she possesses retained her sanity and together they might be a catalyst to change the future of the war.

If they can stay alive and learn how to share one body, that is.

Now, a millennium old Demon who has no morals is stuck with a hard-headed young woman, who has her own ideas regarding what her future will be.

Together, they work out a truce, of sorts.

Until the Demon gets hooked on soap operas, game shows and changing Katie's body without permission.

Then All Hell Breaks Loose.

Scroll back to the top, and click “Read for Free” or “Buy Now” and kick back for a fun supernatural action packed adventure that will have you yelling for the good guys, and laughing at the arguments between Katie and … her.

Good start to a series

This is a good start to another series from the mind of Michael Anderle. Torn Asunder introduces the characters and sets up the world of the damned. The series gets better with every book and at the rate that Michael and his fellow authors put out stories in this and the Kutherian Gambit universe one never has to worry about not having anything to read or listen too.

The strong female lead and loyal cohorts are a hallmark of Anderle's writing and the narration of Emily Beresford is first rate. She helps the characters each have a unique voice and personality.
Katie & Pandora's story gets better as the series goes along. I personally love the interaction between the two of them.

***AWESOME -

This is awesome! I needed a different out look on life, i mean Lucifer and God.This book has many things to digest. I was laughing a lot and then thinking a lot about life in general. How can someone believe in a higher being and not actually not go to church? Well, this book is funny and hilarious and spiritual and i like it. I hope no one judge me because the cursing and the killing is so nice and needed. This helps me look at the world a different way. All the things that has happen in this book is sad but so true in the real world. It helps me to realize that i need to stay true to my self. I can't wait to listen the other books.

Good job,

Another Supernatural Wonder

Michael has done it again, I just can not wrap my mind around how not only can he have these stories in his head but to write them down at the rate he is moving. Protected by the Damned delivers another very strong female lead that just refuses to be kicked and stay down. Along with Michael's writing Emily Beresford just never fails to deliver. Her use of distinct voices with all her character representation is spectacular and keeps me coming back and wishing for the books to never end.

Wow

There are two narrators I would buy a audio book without looking at the book. Susan Erickson and Emily Beresford. Ms. Beresford you bring Michael Anderle/Michael Todd stories to life. You make us want to meet the characters and be there friend. I can't wait to hear all the rest of your words.
