To write her multigenerational speculative fiction series, C.L. Talmadge delved into her own past lives and those of her family, friends, clients, and acquaintances. The fictionalized result is the Green Stone of Healing(R) sagaThe Green Stone of Healing® speculative epic book set is the full series of four books: The Vision, Fallout, The Scorpions Strike, and Outcast - by the author, C.L. Talmadge.

The Vision
When my husband, Rob, was taken to the hospital by ambulance, I grabbed the first book in this series to take with me, knowing I had long hours ahead of me, sitting, waiting and worrying.

It was an excellent choice because Rob slept away a good part of the day, and I needed something to occupy my mind, other than worrying.

Immediately, upon reading the first page, I was swept away by the story of Lt. Helen Andros - an illegitimate, presumed orphaned physician with a gift for healing.

With a touch of romance, a dose of action and adventure, a dash of paranormal and a whole lot of palace intrigue - the story kept me involved and reading all day long.

Fallout
It's been a very long time since I have read a whole book in just one day. I was surprised at how quickly the day passed, and how the story gripped me and compelled me to keep reading.

I have always been attracted to stories of the future, science fiction, fantasy, past lives, reincarnation, spirituality, and healing. This book series certainly fit them all!

For a day that could have left me crumbed in tears and fear, with a husband who we first thought was having a heart attack, then a stroke, only to find he had lost his memory and kept asking me the same questions over and over again, every moment he was awake, I was so grateful to have this book to lose myself in.

The Scorpions Strike
Perhaps the magic of the story even helped me to emotionally and spiritually heal from our scare of possibly losing him?

From the book: What happens when politics and piety collide? In the Green Stone of Healing® speculative epic, the conflagration dooms an entire nation and imperils the planet.

Image: Outcast: Green Stone of Healing Series, by C. L. Talmadge (Author). Publisher: BookLocker.com, Inc. (September 1, 2009)
Outcast
The saga combines action-adventure, palace intrigue, the paranormal, and undying romance as favorite characters reincarnate and reunite on their spiritual sojourns.

Behind the scenes, the otherworldly Mist-Weavers, who know about a mysterious gem's full potential for healing, protection, and destruction, attempt to guide through all manner of perils the four generations of strong-willed women who own the jewel.

    I like historical fiction. One of my favourites is "The Eagle and the Raven" by Pauline Gedge. It takes place during the time of the Roman invasion of Britain. Wonderful writing! I almost missed my subway stop many times while reading this book on the way to work.

  39. I love to read all kinds of books but really enjoy fantasy, science fiction, horror books when it comes to just relaxing and getting out of my head.

  40. Angel Ro says:

    I love to read!! I typically pick a fantasy novel ~ scifi, dungeons & dragons, vampire... but typically with a hint of romance. I also like the chick lit books published by Red Dress Ink, for a little lighter reading. Thanks!!!
