Book Description:

“Larry is an angel of the Lord… retired. To avoid final judgment and a rather warm room without a view he seeks to make amends by helping humanity against spiritual darkness. Unable to directly interfere, he must use a human to do his dirty work, or as he calls them… Paladins.

A lonely kindergarten teacher, Harriet Smith, dreaming of romance and an exciting life of high adventure, has no idea that she has been chosen… that is until she is kidnapped by a five-year old, and reborn as the sultry, Maggie Black.

 Maggie is about to find that the world is a far different place than she could have ever imagined as she faces shape shifting hit men, psychotic witches, and a four thousand-year old living weapon of mass destruction. Fortunately, Maggie isn’t alone, as Silas Cole, a deceased Paladin, comes to her aid, possessing the body of his murdered great-grandson. Maggie soon falls in love with the dashing Silas, but finds that to save humanity, she must sacrifice the man she loves.”

My Thoughts:

I didn’t know what to expect when I started to read The Paladin but to my surprise I really enjoyed reading the book.  The author had a lot of action, suspense and even some romance.  It was a very fast read for me and I really enjoyed the book.  I loved all the characters especially Maggie who goes from being a school teacher to a tough fighter.  It was as if she was meant to be in the role she was chosen for. I found her character very fascinating and found her to be a strong character who was truly alone until she met Silas Cole.

Maggie and Silas fall in love, but I felt that the author rushed their romance and some parts of the story a bit.  I thought that he could have slowed the story down some and even given more details in the book.  Overall though I really enjoyed the book and look forward to reading future books by this author.
