We are proud to announce that FALOUT: GREEN STONE OF HEALING SERIES by C.L. Talmadge is a B.R.A.G. Medallion Honoree. This tells a reader that this book is well worth their time and money!
On Azgard, Lord James Mordecai recognizes adult physician Helen Andros as his daughter from a liaison with Miriam Andros (see Vision). However, their union is not harmonious as each brings a different past to the father daughter relationship. He demands offspring loyalty and she wants much more from him. Meanwhile Exalted Lord Toltec King has healed from his debilitating drug induced coma and is interested in Helen's skills as a natural healer and as a surgeon as she brought him back to the living. He orders her to marry her second cousin Lord Justin Atlas. She now knows the Green Stone she wears enhances her medical abilities, but is unsure why. However, she is worried about what will happen to her father, who stands trial for seditious acts. At the same time Justin's father Prince Enoch Atlas believes he is finding the secrets of the priests of the Temple of Kronos in the use of life and death kura energy, which if successful will further his ambition. The second Green Stone of healing tale is a terrific fantasy starring a large cast held strongly together by the confused heroine. The story line is fast-paced throughout and never slows although much goes on in several subplots. Enoch is a great villain with plans to raise himself and his House to the Exalted Lord level as C.L. Talmadge continues to expand on her deep political fantasy that requires the audience to read the first tale in what is so far a great saga. Harriet Klausner
Helen Andros is now, in this second novel of the Green Stone Healing Series, the recognized daughter of Lord James Mordecai. It's a relationship that seems to cause trouble for everyone associated with either character. If that's not enough, Helen continues to create havoc by her frequent verbal comments guaranteed to boomerang into the most excruciating, almost sadistic, punishments. Self-sabotaging tendencies? It seems so far too often with her 'foot in mouth' slips. The political in-fighting that began in The Vision has now entered a new level with the healing of the Exalted Lord, the Toltec King who is now interested in Helen's natural and surgical healing treatment of Lord Matthew and others as well as the upcoming trial of her shamed father, James. But the hidden yet pivotal conflict centers around who will control the knowledge and use of kura, a type of energy that could both heal and kill. That knowledge presently resides with the Temple priests but Prince Enoch Atlas comes upon a document that makes him imagine the huge political and military power behind this mystical, invisible reality. Helen over time realizes her green healing stone has something to do with her healing powers but still doesn't grasp its far-ranging capabilities to assist her in utilizing greater spiritual power even beyond her present medical practice. At the moment all she can do is torturously ponder her father's demand that she submit to his military and paternal authority, while he must wrestle with the need to show this long-lost daughter love and acknowledged respect for the healing profession to which she is so fervently attached. Indeed, it's her single claim to dignity. Helen learns more, though, about relationships that will expand her present, confined status. How will it all end - or begin? Although Fallout has a bit much of unbelievably cruel punishments and recovery scenes, the rest of the story still compels the reader's interest to wonder how the micro and macro conflicts of powerful control versus empathic healing love will be resolved.
