Her unique ability to reconstruct the identity of the long dead from their skulls has helped bring closure to parents of missing children. For Eve, whose own daughter was murdered and her body never found, the job is a way of coming to terms with her personal nightmare.
When she is approached by billionaire magnate John Logan to reconstruct the face of an adult murder victim, only his promise of a sizable charitable contribution persuades her to accept. The warning signs are clear. There is the specially equipped lab Eve is taken to in a country inn turned high-tech security fortress in rural Virginia. Surveillance cameras monitor her every move. The telephones are tapped.
And then there is Logan himself—by turns ruthless, charming, and desperate. The skull has begun to reveal its shocking identity, trapping her in a frightening web of murder and deceit. To free herself, she has no choice but to expose that identity and to trust Logan, the man who put her life in danger, a man who may see her as an expendable pawn.

Faces of Deception - Troy Denning - Google Buku
For a Forgotten Realms novel, I thought this one was rather subpar. I wasn't a great fan of the first entry in the Lost Empires quartet, which I bought based on author recognition and great looking artwork, but now despair for. Denning's entry is particularly weak. I find the protagonist Atreus to be unrelatable, and Denning's description of him, his feelings, and even his appearance to be disjointed and inconsistent throughout the novel. Additionally, the story just came off as dull, even thou For a Forgotten Realms novel, I thought this one was rather subpar.
Additionally, the story just came off as dull, even though the setting the Utter East ought to have made it more interesting. The characters seemed to do whatever would serve the plot in a particular situation, were not possessed of much depth whatsoever, and generally spent a lot of time doing nothing. For a book that actually seemed to be trying to create a lot of character development and focus on many little side tidbits other than the main storyline, Faces Of Deception accomplishes precious little. I wouldn't say the book is "bad", merely poor to "O. Feb 19, Jesse rated it liked it Shelves: forgotten-realms.
I was a little disappointed in this story. The writing style, and even the story itself, was not bad per se.
It just felt like the story wasn't really set within the Forgotten Realms setting. This may be due to the book being part of the "lost kingdoms" series, so we arn't supossed to be familar with setting. But even so, I need more of an anchor to make it feel like a realms book. The characters were I was a little disappointed in this story. The characters were well made.

I felt like they all had some serious depth and real life to them. Once again, Denning's writing was not the issue. Lastly, I gave the story 3 stars instead of 2 because of the somewhat of a suprise endding. At least it was very unique for a Forgotten Realms book. Some reasons might not like this abrupt endding, but I enjoyed it.

It has all the ingredients for a great adventure - a goddess-given quest, a legendary location, and odd companions. Too bad it seems to fall short.

The plot and the writing isn't bad at all; it's just not very exciting for me. The protagonist is hard to relate to; he's torn between being selfish and being noble. But kiddos to Troy Denning to actually being able to work in combat scenes with a pacifist along. View 1 comment. Jun 05, Ville Kokko rated it liked it Shelves: english , fantasy , fiction.
A spectacularly ugly man goes looking for a cure for his deformity in order to have a normal life. Unfortunately, his whole quest is a fake set up by people who wanted to get rid of him. Anyway, his handicap is too socially debilitating for him to settle for any lesson about true beauty coming from within, but it would also be a cop-out for him to just become good-looking without growing as a person, especially since his quest is fake.
The author sets up an interesting dilemma that I actually have an idea for a better ending myself. Jan 15, Ken marked it as sold.
