This cover is really unique. I love the color and the design. It offers a fresh look and it sets this book (and the series) apart from others. The scene depicted here really draws my attention and makes me curious about the plot and the characters. I have not had a chance to read the first two books, The Emerald Talisman and The Sapphire Talisman, but I can't wait to start! I am really excited to read this series and to see what kind of world Ms. Pandos has created (and the covers are just fabulous)! I hope you all enjoy this cover reveal. Now go out and get yourself a copy of this book. Even if you don't read it, you can just stare at the cover. You should probably still read it though because you never know what you may find. New treasures lurk in every corner. A special thanks to Brenda Pandos for allowing me to participate in her cover reveal! =)
All was perfect in Julia’s life until Nicholas had his vampire blood-lust activated by his mother Alora, her immortal enemy, turning him evil and bent on revenge. Heartbroken and out of choices, Phil and Julia ran away in the middle of the night, with Scarlett on foot, to Orange County to warn and plead Nicholas’ Godfather for help. Once arriving at Harry’s though, the local coven accosted them and they narrowly escaped.
After they returned home, there was a huge showdown between Phil, Nicholas, Scarlett, Alora, Katie and Julia. Alora almost got what she wanted—Julia’s vampire warding talisman—but Preston, Nicholas’ father, and Harry came to the rescue. They escorted Nicholas and Alora back to Beverly Hills, pledging to return Nicholas free from his blood-lust. But all Julia’s received in the past four months is a letter stating Nicholas missed her along with some song lyrics and promise of a quick return. That was a month ago.
Now Julia awaits Nicholas’ return with the Fab Five Coven: Phil and Katie—the sober vampires, Scarlett—the half-vamp/shape-shifter, and Tyler and Julia—the inducted humans. She’s stuck in Scotts Valley with Phil as her self-appointed chaperon and no way to return to Los Angeles to check on Nicholas. Only Scarlett and Julia know her fate ultimately involves the demise of all vampires, possibly including the ones she loves. When the time comes, will she even have a choice?
Find out in the final installment of the bestselling Talisman Series November 16, 2011!
