The PROTECTOR, an Outer Rim Novel, by Diane Burton

August 14, 2015


The Protector
, a novel by Diane Burton, mystified me at the beginning. Sci-Fi is a genre that I usually do not read, and I had no idea what to expect. My own Sci-Fi reading involvement stretches only to television and the different Star Treks, and especially Voyager with Kathryn Janeway.

Don’t misunderstand me; I have nothing against the Sci-Fi genre. I just don’t take the time to read it in my leisure time. Besides, I did not expect Burton’s book to be so very well put together that it would catch my fancy or remind me of my favourite Voyager character, Kathryn Janeway, but it did.

Burton’s main Character, Rissa Dix, is a strong woman. Her painful loss gives her the strength to reach out and commit courageous acts to hinder an evil that pervades even in our world.

This evil that Burton addresses is one of the most hideous problems wracking Rissa’s world. However, it is not only wracking the colony of Astron. The author’s theme permeates and reveals the blindness in our own society. Mainly, trafficking, better known as slavery, which takes place today on the business as usual level. Women and children snatched and sold to the highest bidder.

51jIWXYOfNL._AA160_The PROTECTOR is a part of Burton’s Outer Rim world. This book presents a woman, living in another world that gets knockdown in life but continually gets up. It shows the loyalty of people who support her. And for those of you who like a little bit of romance sprinkled in the books you read, the thread of a love relationship that is a sparkling and refreshing appears.

Again, in the romance, Burton did not disappoint me. She did not let it become bang, bang, sex with no hindrances. Her idea of a heroine is simply genial. For Rissa Dix is an older woman who has to come to terms with being pursued by a younger man, and I said,

“Wow! Right On Ms. Burton!”
