The Emerald Talisman Review

Summary:To be normal, sixteen-year-old Julia Parker would shed her empathic gift in a second. Life has been difficult since her mother's mysterious disappearance ten years earlier - an event she witnessed, but can't remember. Julia's situation becomes more complicated after a near death experience from a blood thirsty stalker. As high school students go missing it is clear there is a connection to her own experience--past and present. Someone has to stop the madness and a chance encounter with a creepy psychic foretells that only Julia is the key to stopping the madness, but it may require the life of the one she loves.

My Feelings:The Emerald Talisman is a dark compelling read that revolves around Julia a normal teenager expect for the fact that she feel others emotions when there around her she lives with her widowing father and laid-back sweet brother Luke.Her life is altered permanently when she runs out of gas when shes coming home from her job and wanders into the dark woods in order to find a shorter way to get home there she feels the hunger of a viscous creature as she tries to run she trips and finds her self almost falling to her death but is miraculously saved by the Mysterious and secretive Nicholas.I liked Julia she started out kinda weak and defenseless but as the story moved along we saw sparks of a inner warrior ready to fight of the dangerous creatures that lurk without being noticed. Nicholas was a very likable character as well he that dark and intriguing vibe althought I liked another male character in this book a lot more even so it was fun reading and finding out more about the secrets of Nicholas.The plot was pretty great to because when it started to drag it seemed to kick back with a little more action.The ending was not abrupt it ended with some kind of order but I know that there are many more secrets that need to be told in the second book.

Overall:The Emerald Talisman did show small traces of the the well-known,loved and sometimes hated Vampire saga Twilight but still had it own original story that glimmered and shined.


Here's Emerald Talisman Book trailer. Scary isn't it.
