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.
