Book Review: Idi & the Talisman of Talia

Title: Idi & the Talisman of Talia (Born to Be Book 2)

Author: Tracy Traynor




Book 2 of the ‘Born to Be’ series, Idi & the Talisman of Talia continues exactly where book 1 finishes. Idi is about to discover his real name and Marcus continues to educate him, both in magic and self-confidence. All our loved characters are back, including the three witch clans, the Oracles, Absalom and Cassandra. Introduced for the first time is the adorable Goblin Fart Platoon, with Celestine and Bert leading them on their mission.



My review

5/5 Stars

This second installment of the Born to Be books leaves off where the first one did. It opens with Idi setting out on a journey to find his real name. However, he is only given more mysteries. The story bounces around to show the movement of many different quests from Cassandra’s search for her son to the goblins preparing for war.

Seeing each of the different groups from their own point of view really made it tough to choose a group to root for. However, I loved the bits of humor that the author has mixed in with the seriousness, like the shenanigans of the witches learning how to fly. There’s plenty going on in this book to keep a range of readers interested.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
