Enjoy this series

Would you consider the audio edition of The Emerald Talisman to be better than the print version?

Yes, I like audio over print due to my busy schedule and prefer the spoken word over music or especially TV

What other book might you compare The Emerald Talisman to and why?

Sookie Stackhouse, because the main character is strong and when the main character gets issues from life she stands straight backed and tall. She has an ability that helps give her an edge over those who wish to do her harm.

Somewhat Twilight except when she has an issue with the opposite sex she has a reasonable time of sadness she does not drone on and on for chapters being depressed and throwing pity parties and disrupting the lives of everyone around her and her life does not end when one she had issues with does not see her.

I know I am being vague but I do not want to give too much info I like the entire series and do not want to ruin it for anyone.

What about Mary Morgan’s performance did you like?

her careful reading and her professional behavior on the mic.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When she learned of her mother and the part the object of her affection had in trying to help her mother.

Any additional comments?

I am getting impatient waiting for the next two books in the series.
I gave only a little bit of information as to not ruin the book for anyone. I enjoyed this series and I want others to enjoy it too.

The Emerald Talisman AMAZING STORY and world

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

ABSOLUTLEY! I loved this book. At first I thought that Julia's voice was a little child like and I had a hard time figuring out how old she was. But as the story continued, I felt that Julia evolved and grew up in a sense. She was very good at hiding herself and it really showed in how Mary Morgan (the narrator) read the book.

What other book might you compare The Emerald Talisman to and why?

I do not compare books to other books. I don't think that is fair. Each book is unique and deserves to be amazing without riding the shirt tails of another book/author. This book was an incredible story. I love the world that author Brenda Pandos has created!

Have you listened to any of Mary Morgan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I believe this is the first one. I think she did an amazing job!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were a lot actually. This book is full of emotion. The emotion meter is off the charts! At points you want to scream at Julia and then hug her the next. It is great to see how characters react to situations when in your head, you know exactly how you would react. When they react differently, THAT Is what makes a great story!

Any additional comments?

I REALLY wish that book 2 & 3 were ready for Audible *HINT HINT BRENDA & MARY* I really want to finish this series on audible as now I have the characters voices in my head and want to hear them MORE!!
