This is one of the most imaginative, intricate, and involving series I've ever seen. Yancy Butler is strong, sexy, and savvy, combining the best qualities of womanhood. Lots of character diversity, mystic touches, details which, even if you miss some of them (like Nottingham's tombstone), are incredibly satisfying in adding texture. Drawing from a huge variety of tales, myths, legends, spiritual beliefs, melded with neo-tech experiments, the story line is captivating. The only disappointment is it ended way, way, way too soon. Talismaniac is fab. So...."Had any dreams lately?"
