As soon as I spotted Legacy of the Witch, I had to grab it up and you know, it was a great little novella. It really does a fantastic job of setting up the world of the Portal series (which is awesome) and easing you into a storyline that can be a little complicated at times since it deals with past lives and the reincarnation of a group of sister witches.
I really liked both Amarrah, a witch searching for a scared box and Harrison, a war hero that somehow wound up with the box while serving overseas. There's a pretty instantaneous and familiar connection between them which becomes clear during flashbacks to her life in Babylon with the sister witches the series revolves around. It was really interesting to see how everything and everyone connected in both the past and the present.
The novella's pretty exciting. There's danger and mystery along the way as they hunt down the box and sort out everything that's happening around them. I'm a total greedy girl though and would have loved a little more on both her past life in Babylon and the romance in the present but really it was a great taste of the series and a fun read. If you're thinking about picking up the series I'd definitely recommend grabbing a copy of Legacy of the Witch first :)
