The Story: "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.
My Review: OMG, Onyx Talisman was definately worth the wait. As the third, and concluding book, in the series, it's so action packed that I couldn't put it down. I loved every bit of it, even when I wanted to wrangle Alora's neck!! And Nicholas... swoon! Not to mention the help that Phil is, even though Julia will never love him like he does her(We learned that in Sapphire Talisman, that's why I'm not afriad to say it now!). LOL But seriously, I can't say enough good about this book. If you haven't started this series, you NEED to!! I could tell that Brenda Pandos put a lot of sweat and blood into writing this whole series. Yes, I realize I'm using a lot of vampire puns, I don't care. This is not "another vampire" book. It's different than any other one I've read, and I enjoyed every minute of it. The Talisman series is one I plan on reading over and over again, to the point that I can quote it.
