Chloe Blake has a unique gift, an odd connection to her house that results in glimpses of the past, present, and future via the picture window in her living room.

But her visions are getting increasingly troubling, full of darkness and pain, and the house shows her a group of teenagers who will be coming to her to lead them into an uncertain fate.

One by one they are drawn to Chloe's house, and to a mysterious chest that appears in a dusty corner of the attic. Inside, each finds a talisman that grants them a unique ability--a weapon for the battle ahead.

Chloe and her friends are The Order, gifted with powers to fight the dark chaos that's descended on their town, bent on wreaking havoc not only there, but around the world. The Order is ready to fight, but fighting may not be enough. And if Chloe's visions are right, they might not all emerge from the battle unscathed.

Or even alive.

THE TALISMAN CHRONICLES is an exciting YA paranormal adventure, full of twists and turns, supernatural powers, plus a little romance along the way. Perfect for fans of The Hunger Games, Divergent, Twilight, and I Am Number Four.
