Sci-fi/fantasy with a spiritual twist. Although set in a familiar and plausible modern world, Protectors Diaries: The Fifth Force touches dimensions that spiritual teachers have described but that few of us know. The heroes operate on planes of consciousness far above the usual good and evil power struggles in the material world. The stakes for the Protectors are nothing less than the future evolution of the human race. Excitement and action, with nobility of character: a great addition to a genre usually dominated by mundane characters caught in all-too-predictable conflicts. Clever dialogue and unexpected plot twists keep the story moving right up to the surprise ending! The subtle insertion of spiritual truths into a science fiction thriller will leave you feeling both uplifted as well as entertained.

From the author: “I wanted to create characters and a world that devotees of all paths could enjoy. I call it sci-fi/fantasy with a spiritual twist. I am pleased to say that the book has gotten a fabulous response.”
