My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Journeys Through SpaceTime is James Talisman’s debut novel, and the first in his Journeys Through series. It sits on the border between sci-fi and fantasy, with a story that transcends an array of times and places.
The story begins with an introduction to the different worlds we will encounter in the book, as characters in every setting have a similar, unsettling experience. Their stories unfold as they seek to understand the experience, and the reader seeks to understand what connects the strands of the story.
Talisman clearly has a passion for world-building, and readers are given a rich and detailed description of the many worlds the story inhabits. For the most part, it is easy to keep track of although there were times when I wished I had a paperback copy so I could refer back to the Dramatis Personae. The settings each very much have their own character, ranging from modern-day Earth to alien worlds that evoke ancient civilisations, each with their own cast of interesting and developed characters.
For me, this is a five-star book. It is a complex story that demands your full attention, and rewards with a rich tapestry of worlds held together by an original and engrossing story. I’m looking forward to reading more from this author!
