From the moment I read the summary of Talisman of El, I could not wait to read the book. In some ways my anticipation scared me; I feared there was no way that it could live up to my expectations.

Charlie is a character that immediately tugs at your heart strings. You will be drawn into his story. The strong use of dialogue will draw you into his character. And the adventures that he and his friends go on will keep you on the edge of your seat. I could not put it down--I wanted to be part of the group.
