Brett Salter’s “The Search For Synergy” is the first book in The Talisman Series. Rome Lockheed and Julian Rider are transformed from normal kids into epic warriors fighting to preserve Earth. He has created a stunning new world that feels familiar and fresh, with a cast of characters that will remain with you. His impressive writing captures your attention from the first page, creating a hugely compelling, unforgettable read. Thrilling action, magic, and adventure fill this book. In addition, Brett’s characters have a lot of charm and the action sequences are thrilling. Several twists and turns conclude the storyline beautifully. It was fascinating to learn about the powerful Duo (the knight and the dragon), the ranks of the Darkbrand army, magical powers, family life, encounters and shape-shifting. This book is fantastic!
