Journeys Through SpaceTime (Journeys Through Book 1) by James Talisman – Review by Makaela Patterson

Starting off the year reading a great fantasy books has been awesome. The storyline setup is a page turner . You are Immersed into the story and before you even half way through the book your already saying this isn’t a stand alone there has to be a book 2 !! Overall the story is fantastic, the characters are written very well no character got lost in the storyline. I really like the build up of the characters and as your read the book your viewpoints start to change or get stronger with different Characters of the book. You start to understand their strengths and what drives them. I recommend this book to my son and I’m going to read it again with him. It’s a great read for adults and teens who enjoy fantasy. My last thoughts this is a great read and I recommend this book.

Journeys Through SpaceTime by James Talisman. Are you looking for something unique and that can take you away on an adventure from the real world? Look no further because that’s exactly what you’ll be getting with this incredible story. This story had me completely captivated from start to finish. The author knows how to write a story that had me lost in a fantasy world that I didn’t want to leave. The characters are complex and well developed even the smallest details are taken seriously. This book will definitely be on my mind for a while. While I loved it I was sad when I ended it so I’m excited to see what this author comes out with next. This is a new to me author but it definitely won’t be the last book I’ll be getting. The storyline it well written and paced nicely. Five stars all the way and highly recommended.

This is a sci-fi/fantasy in which there are multiple storylines following different characters in different universes, realities and timelines. Each is very different and draws on various ancient mythologies which I really enjoyed. Although confusing to follow, I appreciated having to engage more with the story. I also liked the world-building, which was extremely complex, although it was at times more descriptive and wordy than immersive. The ending was definitely action-packed, and the weaving of the story becomes clear in the way the end is tied up but leaves you wanting more.

Journeys Through SpaceTime is an exceptionally in-depth, complex story that takes you on a journey through multiple worlds and times. You get a clear, vivid picture of each world and of all the characters as you delve into this mysterious novel. I struggled with finding the connections at times, but thoroughly enjoyed reading about each of the characters separately and getting to know them and the fantastical worlds they lived in. I would honestly love to see this broken down into one book for each world, and then tie the worlds together in a final book! There is so much to learn about each world and the characters within that I think this would definitely be doable!

This is not a quick read. You need to allow yourself at least a week to travel on this journey in order to really grasp the concepts depicted and keep each world straight in your mind. You will probably want to read it more than once as there is a lot going on! Loads of action, mystery, deceit, magic, and an abundance of thought provoking narrative that will have your brain working overtime! While this is not normally my genre of choice, if you are a fan of sci-fi and multiverse theory, this one will definitely hold your interest from beginning to end! You can most definitely tell this author is very passionate about this subject matter!

Journeys through SpaceTime is a collection of stories running through parallel universes. Each story happens in one realm, and each story has the protagonist, the antagonist and an invisible force connecting them all, encouraging the protagonist to believe or remember his/her powers to fight against the evil. The focus shifts from one realm to another, we come across kings and queens of Egyptian empire, the vassals of the Roman empire, people from the Utopian empire and then humans of the current Earth. The book spans across different characters in multiple universes and in each universe, there is this good character, trying to battle the evil forces in any way they can.
It is a very ambitious sci/fi project with lots of details, and definitely not an easy read. There are too many characters and too many worlds. To be honest, as a reader I felt it should have been more spread out. But as this book is the first in the series, I am hoping the author is going to connect all the pieces of the puzzle together and we will know the reason behind so many different characters.
Based on how he constructs the plot, it can definitely turn out to be an epic fantasy/ science fiction series. It is not easy to imagine and building one fantasy world, and the author does a very commendable job building up so many at one point of time. It is a work of excellent imagination from a very promising author. Hope to see more work from him!

This book spanned across time and space with the action packed lives of each of the six different characters’ time and dimension. Their directions are similar yet different which makes this book exciting. It provides action with knowledge and insight on their own personal greater power. This books keeps you on edge on what will happen next with mystery and intrigue keeping you glued in chapter after chapter. Pick this book up and you’ll never want to put it down.

I really enjoyed this exciting and fast paced debut novel by James Talisman. Set in the ‘MultiVerse’ of multiple worlds scattered through both space and time this sci-fi/fantasy story was out of my comfort zone and not a genre I have read before. Honesty I had never heard of the term MultiVerse, but I am so pleased I gave this book a chance. The blurb states it is, “an exciting journey of adventure and discovery”, and it did not disappoint. The story begins with a mysterious voice which is heard in the mind of a selection of inhabitants across the multiple worlds within the MultiVerse of space and time, who’s voice is it and what does it want? The world building is so well done I felt as though I was on each world, and through Talisman’s descriptive writing the sights, sounds and smells all came alive.
There were a lot of different characters introduced from the various worlds, each with their own stories. I did struggle to remember them all in the beginning but the list of main characters at the beginning of the book definitely helped and I did refer back to this at times. The story was told from each characters point of view which I liked and the characters were likeable and relatable, from Hirisho, the sword master’s son from the Dameon Province world, Queen Neferities of the Isonian Empire, Matt Larson, a college student on EarthVerse world, the reptilian humanoid scientist, and a leader of an utopian world. Along with their mentors, who seemed to have ‘godlike’ powers, each character embarks on an adventure and joins the battle between good versus evil.
I highly recommend this well written debut novel which has an exciting storyline even to readers not familiar with this ‘MultiVerse’ genre. It is book one in Talisman’s, ‘Journeys Through’ series and I look forward to the next instalment.

Journeys Through Spacetime was such a fantastic read! I was instantly pulled into the story through the author’s imaginative ad creative writing style. This is the author’s debut novel and I am really looking forward to seeing where he takes this series. The storyline is complex but I really found that I was able to become fully absorbed into what I was reading. I’m not usually a fan of sci-fi stories but I did actually really enjoy this one and I am definitely looking forward to reading more!
The characters in the story were really interesting to read about, and being told form multiple points of view enabled me to begin to understand the role each of them played in the story. The story as whole was beautifully detailed and I could definitely tell how much work the author had out into the story.
As I said earlier I am really looking forward to the next book in the series and I would absolutely recommend this book to other readers!

From the First page of this, I was hooked. I’ve always loved time travel stories, and this one was no exception, if anything it set the bar higher for any other time travel books I’ll read after this one. I loved the amount of detail and attention that was put into this book. From all the different characters and the different worlds and how it built up and all intertwined. Often times with books with several characters it’s hard to keep up, but this one I didn’t struggle hardly at all, and the handy guide in the beginning was also very helpful. I recommend this 100% to anyone who loves a detailed story, time travel, and sci fi/fantasy. I am anxiously anticipating the next book!
5 out of 5 stars.

Journeys Through SpaceTime (Journeys Through Book 1) by James Talisman is an amazing read. This isn’t usually a book I would read but after reading the Synopsis I became curious. This is a sci-fi/ fantasy book that is full of time travel, adventure and action. This book has many characters and scenery that the author did amazing job on giving detail to that you can envision while you read. After I started the book I realized I needed to read it at a slower pace so that I didn’t miss anything. I quickly became hooked on this book and I am so glad I chose to read it. I recommend this book!
