Talisman Of El

One Planet.

Two Worlds.

Population: Human ... 7 billion.
Others ... unknown.

When 14-year-old Char­lie Blake wakes up sweat­ing and gasp­ing for air in the mid­dle of the night, he knows it is hap­pen­ing again. This time he wit­nesses a bru­tal mur­der. He's afraid to tell any­one. No one would believe him ... because it was a dream. Just like the one he had four years ago - the day before his dad died.

Char­lie doesn't know why this is hap­pen­ing. He would give any­thing to have an ordi­nary life. The prob­lem: he doesn't belong in the world he knows as home.

He belongs with the others.

Talisman of El was a interesting book, Dreams that are not so real, or are they. Life that isn't what you thought is a lot to grasp for a young boy. As we entered the world of Charlie I began to feel a huge likening to Harry Potter. There is a whole other world the Charlie is sucked into, literally! While I liked the characters and the stories they told I was confused by the hugeness of the other world. So many things began with the same letter that I began to con fuse them all in my head and when mentioned again I was never sure what was what! The ending of the book was good but left this open to be a series and I feel like if a series is the plan and more things to learn about our coming I am going to have to have a glossary to keep up!
