Talisman has wrote another amazing part to the Journeys Through series. I love the connections between each character to show that everything is connected. The characters are well developed and each is incredible to read about on their own journeys. I can’t wait for book 3.

Journeys Through TimeSpace
(Journeys Through Book 2)
By: James Talisman
Genre: Sci-Fi Fantasy
Pages: 268

The book I never knew I needed! We have passion, we have chemistry and best of all we have time travel!
This is book two of Talisman’s Journey Through I recommend reading book one first.
The characters are so defined and it’s like word art the characters jump off the page into your mind you feel like part of the adventure.
There are a lot of characters I started to lose track but it was okay because the story is so good.
I don’t know why I connected with this book more then book one but this deserved all the stars because I will be giving this to my children as summer reading.
What is going to happen next and will we get all the answers?

Winner winner chicken dinner! Now this is a book I would recommend to any and all. I am a huge fan of time travel and adventure. Have you ever see the show Timeless?
Now think of that in the fantasy world of space.
Now this adapts the love of ancient Egypt and different times of the human world into the sci-fi world and it sucks you in with amazing character; that honestly, should each have their own spin-off okay.
With these characters they are so well explained and the details are so precise that you want to be their friend or their worst enemy. While reading this I didn’t want the story to end but it is beautiful all the way around till the very last page.
Five stars I wouldn’t give it anything else!

‘Journeys Through TimeSpace’ by James Talisman is the second entry of his ‘Journeys Through…’ series and picks up from the events of the first book to primarily focus on returning characters from the EarthVerse and Elipsson worlds. It was rewarding to see familiar faces like Matt and Tysson again and to witness the next phases of their journey. Talisman’s decision to mainly cast a spotlight on these two rather than all six of ‘Journeys Through SpaceTime’s’ protagonists was a smart one- allowing the author the time and space (ha!) to flesh out Matt and Tysson to a greater extent and to concentrate on the cultivation of their abilities and powers.

The narrowing down of characters also permitted for a deeper exploration into the worlds Matt and Tysson hail from and further build upon their unique cultures, structures and histories. The space expeditions and lizzard hierarchy of Elipsson was joy to learn about like last time and, while in theory, Matt’s familiar realm of Earth should not be as interesting, Talisman manages to make the setting fresh and intriguing by not pigeon-holing the narrative in one location- following Matt and his friends and family all around the globe on their adventures. It’s evident that Talisman did his research before going into this book- he paints such a vivid and accurate picture of different countries like Nepal and France with an appropriate level of sensitivity and cultural care, nor does he render the inhabitants of such places mere caricatures or stereotypes.

Another thing that Talisman manages to knock out of the park even further than in ‘Journeys Through TimeSpace’s’ predecessor is his exploration and analysis of his series’ unique wisdoms and ideas of the collective consciousness binding many as one. As Matt and Tysson learn to harness their abilities and develop their skills, the audience’s knowledge of the powers holding the fabric of the MultiVerse deepens. It’s a delight to see the clear influence drawn from eastern, western and religious tradition as Talisman continues to further distinguish and develop the distinct lore of his story.

A sequel is only as good as its capacity to build on themes and storylines of its predecessor, and ‘Journeys Through TimeSpace’ does not come up short in this regard. The events of the first book are seamlessly incorporated and followed here, allowing for natural story progression and character beats and development. Never once did a plot-point feel bizarre or odd- the first book was clearly written with the second one in mind and vice versa with consequences from the former shaping the latter and some aspects of character evolution explored being direct repercussions of the happenings of its preceding book.

If you loved ‘Journeys Through SpaceTime’, then picking up ‘Journeys Through TimeSpace’ is a no-brainer as it reaches even greater heights than its predecessor. For a story spanning the MultiVerse and time itself, you could not ask for better.

Since I read the first one, I wanted to also read the second one to see how it picked up. I really appreciate the author’s attention to details and the pictures he paints of such creative places. The three friends, Matt, Julia and Dan have good chemistry and really bring the reader on the adventure with them. I appreciated in the first installment the ways the character faced challenges and the portrayal of different moral perspectives. This story was definitely easier to follow in terms of characters, setting and the overall plot. It was a good continuation in the series.

This book was definitely something outside of my comfort zone. I was interested in giving this book a shot because is is so different than what I normally read. I was not disappointed. The only drawbacks for me were personal. There was so much detail and characters to keep straight in my head. I did enjoy the Multiverse concept as well as the attention to detail with how the character explored the challenges they were facing. I also appreciated the allusion to cultures we are familiar with but with its own spin. This is definitely a good read for someone that is into the sci-fi/fantasy genre!

Complex with such a story behind it all. This is a great read next to his first book. If you thought he went all out on the first book, this one will not disappoint. Great story! Recommend to all BattleStar Galactica fans.

Journeys Through TimeSpace is book 2 in the Journeys Through series by James Talisman and just like book 1 it did not disappoint!

I loved how readers learned more about the characters throughout this second installment in this series. It captured my attention and kept me wanting to know what happened to the characters when I had to be away from reading it.

Overall, I would highly recommend this series and book to those who love sci-fi and those who are looking to step outside their comfort book genre and want to read something fun, adventurous with a great storyline and awesome character building!
I can’t wait to read what James has to write next!

Journeys through TimeSpace is amazing! This is book 2 in the series and I am so happy that I read it. James took the characters from the first book and gave us more of their stories, there’s more space and time traveling. I just couldn’t stop reading it. I really hope he comes out with a third installment in the series and if not I can’t wait to read what he writes about next!
