    Sucked it dry!!! pun totally intented!

    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!! 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.

    Fun read!

    I love both of the The Emerald Talisman and The Sapphire Talisman. But I figured Brenda Pandos had written herself into a corner. But the resolution was both satisfied and gratified. This is a great fun read really hard to put down with lots of plot twists.

    Holy clapping wow. This is just.... WOW.

    This is not just 'another book about vampires.' I started the series thinking that it was gonna be a little deja vu-ish. I coudn't have been more wrong. I expected a predictable vampy love story, and i pretty much got the exact opposite!! Dont get me wrong there are still vampires and there is still romance, but it is totally unpredictable!! You never know what is coming next and it keeps you reading and keeps you guessing. If you are someone who has not read this series, i pity you. Its all free and there are three. I am sad to see this series end and am hoping that our dear brenda comes out with anoher. Plz do brenda!!!! PLEASE!!!!!

    Awesome Read!

    After my procrastination at reading this last book in the Talisman series, I finally sat myself down one night and read this. As always with Brenda's books, I couldn't stop reading until I was done, and then was left wanting more. The ending to the Talisman series is bittersweet but very well thought out. The whole series is an absolute treat and very well conceived. This book had me in tears at a few points and growling at others.

    I don't want to say goodbye!

    I love this series so much, and am sad to see it end. I know that wrapping up a series, and meeting all your readers expectations has to be really hard. You can never make everyone happy. I felt like something was missing in this finale for me. Due to something that happens to Nicholas, I felt like I didn't get enough of the couple I love in this last installment. By the time I felt like what I was looking for was finally there... it was the end and I admit I felt a little let down. I'm just a hopeless romantic, I admit it :)

    I will say that the action in this story is amazing. Once things start, they don't let up, and there are so many twists and turns that I did not see coming AT ALL. Brenda's storyline is so intriguing and I couldn't wait to see how she was going to wrap this up. At one point it all just seemed hopeless and I had no clue how my beloved characters were going to get their happy ending.

    Thank you Brenda for a wonderful series and for the amazing Nicholas! I can't wait to see what you bring us next.

    Pandos brings it home in Onyx!

    The journey of character development, original storyline, and adventures galore culminates beautifully in Brena's final book! What a ride from start to finish. Never a dull moment, as Julia determines to forge ahead bravely as one crazy revelation and event after another blasts into her life. Nearly every single character in this book experiences something major or shock us by revealing a hidden side to them that blows are minds! There is no good place to put in a book mark and set down this book for a break...just make your coffee and snack ahead of time and buckle in for the ride. Onyx builds and builds, with twists and turns and doesn't disappoint as events explode at the end. Pandos brings the impossible to a thrilling conclusion. I'm sad to say goodbye to Julia, Nicholas, Phil and the gang!

    Awesome

    Thanks Brenda for another awesome read! I highly recommend this series to all ages. As an adult I throughly enjoyed this series and is an excellent example of howother books in this genre should be written... w/o profanity, sexual situations, etc. that aren't necessary. Great job! Can't wait to read your next series....
