Calli Torcher is an injured ex-rodeo rider and horse trainer who has always felt, as she has been able to see a different world at the cliffs on her fathers ranch. After realizing that she has been wrong of her father's feelings for her all along, she goes out to the cliffs where she passes out and suddenly finds herself waking on a parallel earth. The new world is Llandrana, a medieval French-like society where magic is rampant; in fact she is completely healed when she awakens. Calli has been summoned to Llandrana to help with the volerans, a horse like animal with wings. Calli meets two other people from her world, Marian and Alexa, who were both summoned as well to help the Llandrana's in fighting the Horrors, enemies who will destroy the parallel Earth. In order to keep Calli on Llandrana she must be mated. During the mating ceremony she is drawn to Marrec, a skilled but penniless Chevalier.
Marrec is looking to make things better for himself when he is mated to Calli. Upon being mated they are given their own land. Marrec finds himself torn between his duty, his mate and his new livelihood and family. As Calli attempts to complete the task she has been summoned for, Calli and Marrec must work with one another to decide how to make a safe, happy family together.
Protector of the Flight is the third book in the Summoning series by Ms. Owen. I really enjoyed the book as it has a different storyline to it and it was a pleasure to read. I will be going out to find the first two books in the series, Guardian of Honor and Sorceress of Faith. I recommend this to anyone who is looking for something different in a paranormal romance.
If horses could fly . . . Then Calli Torcher might ride again. But a devastating accident left her in such pain, she thought the chimes and chanting in her ears were a hallucination . . . until she found herself transported to another world, and met the Llandranans who had Summoned her. Llandrana was a parallel, magical earth filled with exotic creatures, noble humans and magic—all threatened by an encroaching evil. And when the mighty volarans stopped obeying the Chevaliers, the flying horses' unexpected rebellion had thrown Llandrana into an uproar. In desperation, the sorcerers had sought help from afar—and gotten Calli. If she could fulfill this mission, perhaps she would also finally find all she had longed for—a mate, a home, a family. But against this great darkness, she had no battle experience, no strategy plans. She had only a bond with horses . . .
