Diabolical Sword: An Urban Fantasy Mystery (The Charm Collector Book 1)
4 out of 5 stars
This book one in the Charm Collector collection and I adored this urban fantasy. Harlow is hysterical and the constant commentary between Harlow, Caspian and Welsh alone was enough to keep me going. Harlow is a simple girl, just trying to live her best life. But don’t let anyone tell you that, that life is on the gray side of the criminal. When Harlow ends up with a sentient sword, she is fast wanting to get rid of it, only to find out, that the sword has taken a liking to her, and has made her life, a living nightmare. Soon Harlow finds herself on the run from the cops and other crazy shifter creatures.
This book was super fun. The characters and world were so detailed and incredibly thought out. Lovers of sci-fi, fantasy, and mystery will love this book.

Journeys Through TimeSpace (Journeys Through Book 2) by James Talisman – Review by S. Bittles

Journeys Through TimeSpaceJourneys Through TimeSpace by James Talisman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As with the first book, Talisman’s original writing style will have you on the edge of your seat, trying to read faster than you can keep up.

I recommend reading this after reading the first book, and not as a stand alone. There is a lot of character development, backstories and different world explanations that are needed to understand to be able to fully enjoy this second book. Without a full understanding, you will not know the characters in-depth and their connections during the action packed “Journeys Through” series.

Again, I am captivated by Talisman’s vivid world building and character developments. This second book is just as interesting and page turning as the first, recommend read!

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!

Book 2 is just as amazing as Book 1. James Talisman really knocked it out of the park with his sequel to “Journeys Through SpaceTime”. There was the character development I enjoyed from the first book, and the world is just as fantastic as Mr Talisman created in “SpaceTime”. I was dragged into the book (very willingly, I might add) and I loved every word I read. The premise of the entire book is great, and I had a grand time watching the characters continue to grow. Just as unique and interesting as the first book, “Journeys Through TimeSpace” is one I recommend.

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.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I actually enjoyed this one more than the first one. Mostly because I felt like I had a grasp on most of the characters. With that being said, this series has me looking into some of the topics discussed or touched upon. I’ve always been curious of other cultures and beliefs even if they do not line up with my own.

What I enjoyed about this series is that it combined modern science with ancient beliefs and created a new world or an alternative world.

I felt like it was a cross between marvel, dr. Who, and Star Wars. Very entertain and action packed. I read each book in one day.

I feel like this could be read without having read the first novel but I highly recommend checking it out to get the background info.

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 TimeSpace book #2- James Talisman review by Susan Ratchford

5 stars

With the final battle approaching, Matt and his two friends must learn to travel throughout time to obtain powerful artifacts needed to defend their world from an oncoming attack. The reptilian humanoid leader and his followers are planning total destruction. Traversing through many famous and dangerous eras of Earth’s past, and even its future, Matt and friends try to collect what is needed for a secret organization’s plan to save the planet.
I absolutely loved this book! James Talisman has a way with detail and imagery in a series with such vastness, that he makes it so easy to picture everything! I could really feel the bond between the characters! The time travel segments to different eras had me reading as fast as I could just to find out what would happen next! The incorporation of mythology and Atlantis as well as the way that the ending reveals itself is as unexpected as it is satisfying. It really makes you think!

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!

Born to Fall (Can’t Resist You Book 2) by Brittany Anne – Review By Krystal Gregory

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Born to Fall (Can’t Resist You Book 2) by Brittany Anne
4 out of 5 stars

As always, I preface my reviews by saying that you should read books in book order. This is book 2 in the Can’t Resist you Series. This is a science fiction; dystopian romance story and it is beautiful. This story is written in multi-point of view (POV) and adds a deep richness to the story that allows the reader to form a connection to the characters. Julia is a fascinating character that is both well written and beautifully heartbroken. Too many things have broken Julia, and she is scared to let anyone close. Derek wants to be close to Julia, but he has both a job and a duty, and he isn’t sure if he is making the right choice by keeping his distance from her.
This book is for lovers of romance, sci-fi, fantasy, dystopian, military romance, and strong leading characters. A solid 4 out of 5 stars.
