The Emerald Talisman, Talisman Series – Book One
By Brenda Pandos
This is an interesting book. I enjoyed it, it was easy to read flowed nicely and the characters were well written, so I can’t put my finger on it… but it just didn’t … ring true? Does that make sense? I liked the book but I always felt it was a little contrived.
I guess my hesitancy is that I wasn’t completely … a part of the story. That’s it. I couldn’t identify with any of the characters. You know a great book will make a 50 year old woman feel 16 or 60 depending on the character. A really great book will bring you inside the story and make it your own… or at least make you wish it were… So, this book was good, but not great. It was a story that I read and one that I enjoyed, but not one that I was involved in.
Having said that, I will be looking for her other books, because like I said, I enjoyed this book.
