Journeys Through SpaceTime by James Talisman- Review by Lucy Machard

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I’m not gonna lie, I had pretty high hopes for this book and series. I read through the synopsis/cover summary, looked at reviews for the series. I’d heard great things about this book and author.

That being said, I didn’t enjoy the book as much as I thought. This book and the rest in the series are about a multiverse war of some sort. Honestly, I found it extremely difficult to keep everything straight. The writing style wasn’t what I’m used to, and I found it hard to follow. Some of the characters didn’t make sense, but seeing how this is the first book, they’ll probably have a higher purpose in the books to come. It just wasn’t for me, and I couldn’t get into it. That’s not to say someone else won’t be able to, different books speak and connect to different people, it just happened that this particular one didn’t connect with me. I do plan on reading the next two books, because I have the set, so I’m intrigued to see how the author ties everything together in the books to come.

Journeys Through Collection: Volume 1-3 by James Talisman – Review by Caralee Loonat

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I think that this collection is a great read. I have read all three so far in the series and was glued to the pages. I find that the author has a very unique world created. The characters although fiction are relatable. The story flows real well and the backstory adds to all.

Book one intorduces us to the Multiverse. Journey’s through SpaceTime.
I found the concept of a mulitverse quite original and thought that the author did a good job of laying out all the factions.I didnt have a problem following the story through the various parts of the multiverse and thought that it was very well organised and presented. I have to admit that this book had me glued to the pages cause I couldnt put it down till I read what was gonna happen next.I will defnintely read more from this author in the future.

Book two continues the adaventure. Journey’s Through TimeSpace.

The whole concept of a MultVerse really brings a complexity to the story and he fractions within the story really keep the reader enticed and eager to see how things will unfold. I found the complexity of the fractions to be unique. I really liked the opertunity to be able to continue reading this series. The concept of time travel and a MultiVerse really grab the readers.
I really like the tie to Atlantis with Mark and the twists with him. I really will read more from this author in the future.

Book thee again draws the reader further into the Multiverse. Journey’s Through All Creation.

I like how the author is able to have just the right amount of drama and managed to put in a little romance, just a little. I also like how the characters pasts influence the story and how everything is entwined. I also like the character build up and how the author is able to keep the story flowing and unique. I also loved the cliff hanger at the end and cannot wait to see how this series will continue and perhaps grow.

Journeys Through SpaceTime (Journeys Through Book 1) by James Talisman – Review by S. Bittles

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

New twist in the sci-fi genre, it is nothing less than action packed and captivating. Talisman has an extraordinary talent in writing for several characters and their narratives, which takes place between different worlds and points of view. There is so much to learn about each world and its characters in this complex but extremely well written story, it keeps you guessing as to what will happen next.

This novel is fast paced and will have you sitting on the edge of your seat edge wanting to read as much as you can in one sitting. I found I had to reread some chapters in order to keep each world and its characters straight in my mind.

Even among the many worlds and characters, Talisman uses such great detail that you really feel like you are there. You get a clear, vivid picture of each world and the details draw you in and hold you until the very end. With that being said, you need to take your time reading to ensure you don’t miss any details. Recommended read!

First and foremost, WOW! This book is absolutely stunning—in its character development and world-building, plot and even its cover! The attention to detail is just mind-blowing, and the characters are all unique in their own ways, from actions to voices. James Talisman did a fantastic job bringing such an incredible story—and its characters—to life. The book could have easily been overwhelming or even boring, but it’s the complete opposite. It’s a wonderful read, and I truly recommend it.

I loved the concept. Who doesn’t like multiverses? Who doesn’t like the past blending with the present and future? Super action packed. I would’ve given this 5 stars if I didn’t have a bit of trouble keeping up with all the characters. You can tell the author has a love of different cultures and traditions. Definitely a sci-fi lover recommendation.

Journeys Through SpaceTime (Journeys Through Book 1) by James Talisman – Review by Susan Ratchford

5 stars

Six very different people from vastly different multiverses (including but not limited to, a swordmasters son Hirisho, a reptilian humanoid scientist Tysson, a Co-councilor for a utopian world Rashella, and an ordinary college student named Matt) all hear the same mysterious voice inside their head. Godlike mentors appear to each of them and all must embark on separate quests and use their newly acquired wisdom of all creation and reality to fight for and protect the sanctity of all of their worlds.

This book was enthralling, a must read! James Talisman truly tansports you through different worlds with his vivid imagery and thought provoking characters. Each one so different but expertly brought to life through his imaginative writing. This fast paced novel had me captivated from the first page with twists and turns I never saw coming. His blend of ancient ideals and futuristic concepts bring a delightful duality to the genre. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series!

Do you ever feel like YOU were the lucky one for finding a book? Because I felt LUCKY getting to read this. I am a BIG fan of books that utilize multiple point of views (POVs) because it really keeps me immersed and engaged. I loved the complexity of not only the storytelling- but of the worlds and characters within them. There are so many dynamic exciting things that happen that it can seem overwhelming, but let the story overtake you because the outcome is so worth it. It’s the first in the series and I’m so thankful I can read the second one because I am EAGER FOR MORE. I can’t get enough of the Journey’s Through series and more works by James Talisman! Onto the next!

Journeys Through SpaceTime (Journeys Through…, #1) by James Talisman was a super interesting read. I love sci-fi, time travel, and multiverses so I was intrigued after reading the synopsis and knew this series would be right up my alley. The book starts with so many different characters and paths, that at times it was hard to follow, yet still kept me interested. As you read on, the story starts to unfold and really shows you how the entire multiverse connects. I recommend this book and have already started the second because this one was so great!

Journeys Through SpaceTime (Journeys Through Book 1) by James Talisman – Review by Ayla Eddy

Journeys Through SpaceTimeJourneys Through SpaceTime by James Talisman

Journeys through Spacetime is the first book by James Talisman in his Journeys Through series. It is a fantasy book that takes you through the Multiverse of time and space. The characters are diverse and unique as you follow them through the different POVs and worlds within the book. You can feel the passion that James has for writing through the words on every page. The adventure written in the pages draws you in. Which side will win?

This was my first read by this author and it was a book outside my normal realm of reading. It is a book that is not the quickest read, but letting the details sink in is worth it as it helps fully ground you in the story. I am excited for the next book in the series. If you are looking for a page turning cannot put the book down read then this is one is for you!
