Trade witch Mallory West works part
time at The Club, one night she receives a surprising
invitation from her boss to rest upstairs in the exclusive
lounge. When Mallory wakes from a nap, she finds herself in
another world, and captive of the War Leader of the Talians,
a fierce race fighting to survive a crushing enemy.
Core suspects Mallory is a spy, but
upon intensive interrogation, he becomes convinced she is
the gift promised to him by his god, Ratlaharan.
A Familiar Face has an
interesting storyline with a creative concept. Mallory is a
witch who actually has to work for a living and is
considered unworthy amongst the witch society. Core is a
sensual creature, a natural born leader to protect his
people. Marie Harte illustrates some very different
characters in A Familiar Face. My dislike of
reptiles took away the appeal of a possible good read for
me, but an interesting read for those with different taste.
