Situation Vacant by Gabrielle, Staples


Situation Vacant by Gabrielle, Staples

Job hunting when you are a middle aged woman with a young son isn't easy. Frankly its depressing. Ruth Watson answers an odd advertisement and finds herself taking on a role she could never have imagined in her wildest dreams -- saving not just the universe but the multiverse. Pitched headlong into a parallel world she reluctantly takes on the mantle of Mage Prime and in the process puts her son, her new friends and herself in danger. At the same time she discovers she isn't too old to fall for the handsomest man around. Magic, mayhem and cast of wonderful characters will have you turning the pages late into the night in this first volume of the Pelarian Multiverse Chronicle. Reader's comments: More grown up than 'Harry Potter', more fun than'The Lord of the Rings'. It is a fast moving, satisfyingly well detailed adventure with all characters vigorously drawn. There is a sting in the tail that left this reader avid for the next volume.
