Talisman is book #2 in The Amulet Prophecy Series by Holly Zitting. Even though I haven't read all of book #1 yet, only the sample story, I knew right away it was going to be an awesome book. By reading it, I was still able to figure out what was going on in book #2. I really enjoyed reading Talisman. It is a fantastic book that is very interesting and it had my attention from the very beginning.
Emma is a high school girl who is about to turn eighteen. She has been in danger ever since she found out that she was the center of an ancient Prophecy. Simon, a handsome young man, was sent to protect her. Since the day they met, their feelings for each other had grown and now they are in a serious relationship. Through out her ordeal, he has been by her side, watching and protecting her and her family.
Emma had this feeling that she was being watched and it scared her so she called Simon. Once she was in Simon’s arms, she felt better and safe. Emma is still having a hard time with what is happening in her life. Will she able to get through this and keep her family safe?
Their journey together continues. Simon has been called away and told Emma to stay home. She doesn’t listen and decides she needs some time to be alone and think. She leaves to go to her favorite spot and while there, she finds herself in trouble and something bad happens to her. Will Simon be able to get there in time to save Emma?
As I was reading, I felt like I was with them on this journey. I could also feel Emma’s emotions about her situation and how she will be able to keep her family safe.
Holly Zitting has done an amazing job writing this book. I am definitely going to purchase The Amulet, book #1 in the series and finish reading the other half of it. Wishing Well, book #3 has just been released so I am looking forward to reading it too. I recommend my friends to read book #1 first before reading the Talisman.
I give this book 5 Dandy's!!
“I have been writing for as long as I can remember. I have been writing in the wee hours of the night when my 6 kids were all babies. With my last one I was inspired by the Red Rock Mountains in Southern Utah. I started writing and my 12 year old (at the time) found it. She wrote on the bottom ‘FINISH IT!!!’ Every day I would write more and she would repeat it.
It became The Amulet.
I am currently living and loving Oregon. I have 6 kids and a wonderful husband of 16 years. I hope you will love my stories as much as I do!” –Holly Zitting
