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.
4 1/2 Stars!
This book was so hard to put down!
The Emerald Talisman is the first book in the Talisman trilogy (Sapphire Talisman is book 2, and The Onyx Talisman is book 3). For me, this book was a mix of Twilight, Vampire Diaries, and Blade, which worked for this story. If you like those kinds of books, then you will love The Emerald Talisman.
Right now, the Kindle edition of this book is FREE on Amazon. The paperback copy is $15.25.
