Reading Review called The Talisman of Elam, the first book in Jim Mastro’s epic trilogy, “...a masterpiece of science fiction.” In this exciting sequel, Jason Hunter and his friends are abducted in broad daylight and whisked away to a secret meeting on a frozen planet. There, they learn the ancient talisman of Thoth has been found. It’s in a part of the galaxy that is off-limits—and generally deadly— to humans, but the inhabitants have demanded that humans come and remove it. Oruq, the Thothian leader, is on his way to do exactly that. Once he possesses it, he will plunge the galaxy into war. Because he wants revenge, Earth will be his first target. He will come after Jason. To stop this from happening, Jason must beat him to the talisman. But this time he can’t claim it. Instead, he’s going to do something much more dangerous. He’s going to steal it.
