In this final chapter of the Talbot Trilogy the forces for good and evil finally confront each other in an apocalyptic battle.
Once again, Ms Ridgewood’s superb writing will carry you along into the maelstrom which the sleepy town of Talbot has become.
You will find all your old friends from the first two books between the pages of this one but I can’t guarantee they will all still be there by the end. To find out you will have to read it for yourself.
Go on! I dare you!

My Review:

The third and final installment of The Talbot Trilogy opens in the aftermath of the huge magical event caused by Charlotte and Rayvin. Though their magic was able to temporarily stop the wave of violence brought on by Jason, de Sade, and the newly created army of the undead the fight is far from over and Talbot is on the brink of total destruction.

This 3rd book rounds off the series very nicely. Unfortunately I wasn't available to edit when Tori asked me, so I had a torturous wait for it to be published before I could read it!

It picks up right where we left them in book 2, with just enough of a recap to remind you what's going on without boring you or being tedious. Then the adventure continues with just as much excitement as before. There are various twists to the tale that keep you on your toes and I was pleasantly surprised to find th

CRYSTAL AND WAND is the third and final full-length novel in the Talbot Trilogy. Rayvin and Charlotte must combine their powers to defeat the vampires Jason Lucas and Malcolm de Sade. CRYSTAL AND WAND picks up right after the end of book two in the trilogy, BLOOD AND FIRE. The writing is solid and the characters are consistent throughout the trilogy. CRYSTAL AND WAND is full of twists and turns, but there were some events which seemed if they were thrown in for more of ‘shock value’ rather than ...more

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

It's been awhile since I read the first two books in this trilogy, almost a couple of years, but I was easily pulled back into Talbot.

Rayvin's character became annoying in some areas. She didn't come across as strong as she was portrayed in the other two books. Charlotte definitely out shined Rayvin's in this book.

The action scenes were tense and described well. There were some areas in the book which dragged on

Crystal and Wand took me on a journey I did not expect when I first began it. All the best-laid plans I had originally set out were pushed aside as the characters made their own wishes known. The story is gritty, and some readers may find it controversial. The protagonists need all of their strength when their alliance is tested beyond its limits in order to bring about the defeat of the malevolent vampire coven.

A truly satisfying end to the Talbot Trilogy. I do hope you enjoy reading it as much

After her first heartbreak, Tori found solace in two things: reading romance novels and listening to an after-dark radio program called Lovers and Other Strangers. Throughout the summer and fall of 1990, the new kid in town found reading fiction and writing her own short stories gave her a much needed creative outlet. Determined to become a published author, Tori amassed stacks of notebooks and bo ...more
