Megan Cassidy, a world-renowned psychic, must fight a serial killer to save her six-year-old son Robbie. But she can't do it alone. She needs help from the best tracker and ranger in West Virginia, her ex-fiancé Brody Phelps.
In a psychic vision Megan sees her own death during a battle with the murderer whom the police have dubbed the Mountain Mangler. She soon discovers that the Mangler is also psychic and is presenting a challenge the first six victims couldn't meet.
While Brody and Megan search the mountains for the Mangler and Robbie, Megan is drawn to Talgor Ridge where a Talgorian Elder tells them an unbelievable story.

Acceptance is the only way to save Robbie, and the Talgorians, from total destruction.

really loved this book, it had a couple of really great surprises and it was never slow. The characters were well rounded from the obnoxious police officer (I swear I wanted to kick his butt myself) to Megan, our heroine, who loved her son so deeply nothing not even the threat of death would keep her from rescuing him. One warning, make sure when you start Talgorian Prophecy you have plenty of time to read because you won’t want to put it down until you have turned the last page.
“Talgorian Prophecy is filled with suspense, love, and fantasy. The plot will keep readers on the edge of their seat. The emotions in this story run deep, I was wiping tears several times before I finished reading Talgorian Prophecy. The characters are well-defined. Megan is a strong character willing to fight to the death for her child. Brody is a wonderful character, although at times I wanted to yell at him for his stubbornness. Fans of suspense, romance and fantasy will love this one.
