Publisher's Summary

Hank Flynn is a tormented man.

He’s an outcast among humans and condemned to confront evil for as long as he lives. Serving a higher power, Hank wanders the earth alone, until he stumbles into Protection, Kansas. Mortally wounded and delirious after a demonic encounter, Hank Flynn is desperate for help.

Wallace Bixby, a local merchant and man of faith, graciously opens his home to the broken stranger. Hank Flynn discovers the meaning of family and community, and the avenging drifter finds peace with Josie Bixby, the young woman who heals his body and his heart. The town of Protection is exactly what Hank needs, and the town needs the man with special talents, who slays demons. He deals out a unique brand of punishment to anything breaking the law, or threatening the people he loves. But, when the devil himself comes calling, Hank Flynn must risk everything for the town he now calls home.

Bonanza Meets Biblical Horror

When Hank Flynn stumbles onto the site of what will soon become Protection, Kansas, it's immediately apparent to Wallace Bixby and his daughter, Josie, that there's something special about this grievously injured man. Nursed back to health, Hank settles in and becomes a member of the growing community as long as God will allow it.
Protection is aptly named, with Hank Flynn around, because there's no threat that Hank won't combat to keep the people of his home safe, whether marauder, drought, or worse. It soon becomes clear that "worse" is going to be the case more often than not, as strange and evil forces align to seek out Hank where he's found peace. But Hank is a man of many skills and a haunted past that propels him forward as he does God's will wherever he's called to do so. The malevolent beings that hunt him down would be wise to avoid Protection, Kansas because Hank is no stranger to raising Cain when the situation merits it.
Candace Nola has written a spiritual horror stand-in for Little House On the Prairie, punctuating the prosaic struggles of frontier life with body and soul battles against the denizens of Hell. It's a little bit Kung Fu (the 1970s television series) and a little bit Supernatural all rolled into one captivating package.
The narration provided by Jamison Walker is dramatic, and the voices of the assorted characters are distinctly their own. I'd never encountered his narration with previous audiobook titles, so I'm not sure if this title is representative of his other work, but it was suitable for this book.

Even Better Aloud

I first read this book, the first time, back when it was first released & loved it so much that I immediately read it again - which I never do. I will always suggest print but the audio version is fantastic-love the narrator's voice! The audio version does the entire story justice and adds another intricate layer to an already amazing story.
