really liked it

My General Rating: 3.5


If sometime you literally asked yourself how would be the life of a possible vampire hunter who has no idea this beings exist and the help of "one of them" to train her, The Emerald Talisman main character could be a good example. The Emerald Talisman narrates the story of Julia, a simple girl with a singular talent. Julia's life goes out normally until one night when she is attacked by X creature and handsome Nicholas saves her life. This is where our main character's eye opener to a world surrounded by supernatural forces and even her mother's disappearance will be one of the puzzle's pieces. There's two aspects I've really liked from the story. One is that in the story, vampires are more of a force than a constant. Second, the singular characteristics that Pandos grants her vampires are interesting and could define it as a crossover between Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Twilight. My favorite part is ENIGMA's appearance since it gives the story another supernatural touch and separates it from other story's comparisons. The title has an important meaning and role in the story. The end is satisfactory and leaves the possibility for more Julia and Nicholas adventures. The question would be "Would we see story sidekicks?". I hope we do. The Emerald Talisman is a new promising story for a new vampire saga.

Random Note: Even do there’s a few misspells is not distracting at all.
