Next, I want to express my gratitude to Susan Bischoff for writing such a good story. I don't want to give you any false pretense of a "perfect story"--because really such a thing doesn't exist-- but I will say that I think this story followed the description and that us in my opinion worthy of at least two stars.
The other three stars were earned by Joss' clear character development. At the beginning of the book she's a shy and meek girl who is tortured by the loss of her only friend years later. However, by the end she is looked up to by her peers and determined to make a difference.
Really good book(;
It's been a long time since I've read a YA book and just really liked it. Though this is part of a series, I was not given some annoying cliff hanger or love triangle. I think what made this work for me was how real the characters feel. They have depth to them. They're funny. They're idiots. They're jerks. And I love them for it. The dialogue is really great, too. It's realistic, how I'd expect teenagers nowadays to talk. So yeah, there's a lot of swearing. But that's never bothered me before.
Joss is a great main character. She's not your average girl. I love how she wears a military jacket and combat boots every day. The book switched between her point of view and Dylan's, but stayed mostly with Joss. Which is fine, because I like Dylan, too. He's always wearing a leather jacket and screams 'You're going to like me, so deal with it.' And so I did.
One thing I didn't like was how typically bad Marco was. Some of the stuff he said and did left me cringing and rolling my eyes. And even though the book doesn't end on a cliff hanger, it does just kind of end. It felt more like the end of one episode. You know there's a lot more to come. So if you love superheroes and want an easy, deliciously fun read, choose this. It's well worth the 99 cents you'll spend.
And a lot of them, despite the GLOWING reviews on here have sucked the proverbial thousand year old egg.
Bad editing, brain numbingly irritating characters and crappy plotline had begun to make me a little wary of pulling the trigger, even if it's only .99
And I would like the give Susan Bischoff a resounding golf clap for restoring my faith in the "Kindle Bargain e-book"
I happened along a excerpt of "Heroes Till Curfew" ad the end of another e-book. And I liked it, it grabbed me. So I tottered on off to Amazon to look it up.
I discovered it was the second in the talent series. This, Hush Money being the first.
So I cued this up deciding I'd pull the trigger on the second after I'd slogged through a bit of this one. it was only .99 cents after all.
If you're on the fence, or if like me you've been burned by other sludgy YA books lately. This book is good, really good, like almost super awesome good.
Ms. Bischoff has assembled an amazing assortment of characters, both good and bad.
The storyline zips along with the perfect amount of suspense and action. With the perfect amount of heart and budding romance. I queued up the next one immediately upon finishing this one last night. And have already finished that one (which is even more amazing if possible)
Not since Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days, Book 1) by Susan Ee, have I been in such fan girl squee over an author.
Seriously, go buy this book, and the second one.
When I read the words 'the end'--which, yes, it actually does say--I actually thought it was kidding because it hadn't even begun to address really any of the major issues--but it didn't leave enough left for a sequel! This book would have been a million times better if the author had taken the time to write another fifty pages or so.
The storyline, plot, buildup, and overall telling of this story was great. It went at what I felt was the perfect pace, and there was no weird varience in the main character's personality. There was an amazing plot buildup that made it all but impossible to put down as it built up to the climax, then...nothing. It's like the author just ran out of steam and rushed through the climax and ending to the point where the climax was all but nonexistant.

-Joss. The main character was surprisingly enjoyable, considering most young adult heroines are annoying and horribly written.Read more
