Review: The Emerald Talisman by Brenda Pandos

Title: The Emerald Talisman
Author: Brenda Pandos
Date Published: 3/24/10

To be normal, sixteen-year-old Julia Parker would shed her empathic gift in a second. Life has been difficult since her mother's mysterious disappearance ten years earlier - an event she witnessed, but can't remember. Julia's situation becomes more complicated after a near death experience from a blood thirsty stalker. As high school students go missing it is clear there is a connection to her own experience--past and present. Someone has to stop the madness and a chance encounter with a creepy psychic foretells that only Julia is the key to stopping the madness, but it may require the life of the one she loves.

My Rating:

My Review:
So you wanna know what other's are thinking? Well poor Julia has the "gift" of empathy. I loved reading about this from her perspective of dealing with the feelings of everyone around her.

This is one of those obsession at first sight  type books. Not always bad, but sometimes I wish the characters would take a little more time. They had a great connection overall, but it was kinda like Wam and I wish we could have had a bit of escalation.

Julia was a bit Naive at times, as a reader I wanted to knock some sense into her. Thankfully she had Nicholas as her sort of "angel on her shoulder". 

This is an intriguing new YA Paranormal Series, that I definitely want to read more of.
