Alora looked back and the corner of her lip turned up. “It’s always darkest before the dawn, Julia. Good luck.”
Her words sent chills up my spine as she vanished.
Unrest stirs deep in Scotts Valley. Filled with uncertainty, Julia anxiously awaits Nicholas’ return. Phil, hurt and unsure of his place as a sober vampire, holds the pieces of Julia’s fragile psyche together, secretly hoping Nicholas stays away forever. Scarlett bides her time, plotting for the perfect moment to prove herself and earn redemption. But somewhere in L.A., Alora conspires to reclaim her talisman and strip Julia of everything she holds dear.
Little do they know, a war is coming and more than one vampire would like to see the Prince of Vampires overthrown. As more and more vampires show up from nowhere, addicted to her scent, Julia must pick her allies carefully before it’s too late. Can Julia bargain with fate? When the time comes, will she even have a choice? Find out how it all ends in this explosive grand finale of The Talisman Trilogy.
Wow oh Wow!!! This was an explosive ending to a fantastic trilogy!
Julia is waiting for Nicholas to return. Thankfully, she has Phil to keep her occupied. I must gush on Phil for a quick second! I love Phil and even though Julia has a “thing” for Nicholas, I still adore the character of Phil! He is funny, sweet, sincere and does not really come with all of the baggage that Nicholas does.
The vampires start literally coming out of the woodwork. It has been one wonderful roller coaster ride of many twists and turns that the reader will not see coming. Brenda did a great job at keeping us in suspense and absorbing us into the story.
Although Nicholas was absent for most of the book, their reunion had me gushing. He really is a sweet guy, even if he would not be my first choice:)
All in all, the ending was perfect. I was happy that Ms. Pandos wrapped up all aspects of the book. This was a wonderful story and one that I will revisit again!

“The last thing I expected to happen was for him to jump over the cliff, carrying me with him in the process.”
“The one thing I’ve learned about family skeletons is that they always have a way of finding the light of day and ending up at the neighborhood garage sale.”
“You should open up the blinds in there and let in the sun. What are you trying to do? Become vampires or something?
