Talented is a story centered around Natalia, or Talia, who has the ability to read and manipulate minds. Though her talent is rare, there are many other people who have different sorts of talents, all caused by a nuclear spill that mutated the DNA in some people. After her parents were murdered in front of her as a child, she sets out on a path of revenge under the guidance of Mac, the director of TOXIC. TOXIC is an organization that trains and then employs people with talents. The story begins with Talia on the verge of becoming a hunter in TOXIC. As she struggles through her final year filled with dangerous missions, boy trouble, and far too many secrets, she doesn't know who to trust.
I love these books. One of the best things about them is the realistic characters. The characters have distinct flaws and their reactions to life and the problems they face are spot-on and thought provoking. The author also does a great job developing relationships in a believable manner.
At times the books are a little predictable, but by and large the author does a good job maintaining suspense throughout the story and has several twists that I didn't expect.
There are grammatical errors in the books--the author has problems with commas especially--but the errors are not enough to distract from the story.
If these books are anything to go on, the author is--forgive the pun--talented and certainly one to keep an eye on in the future.
Talia's team mates are Eric and Henri, and let me say I LOVE the way Eric and Talia joke around. It is one of those relationships that they can be a smart-ass to each other and not worry about hurting each other’s feelings.
Talia is involved with the head honcho's son Donovan and I wasn’t all that surprised by what happened to them, I saw that one coming a mile away! It was still really great to read it and to be able to picture in my head how it all went down! The action in this book is great. Honestly there wasn’t a single thing I didn’t like!!
This author has a way to make you love and hate characters all at the same time, she writes them with such skill that you can feel and understand exactly what they are going through.
Natalia, or Talia, the main character has to witness the deaths of her parents at a young age. She lives in the part of the US known as the Agency who value the Talented and use their skills to better their government. The rebel group opposing them is referred to as the Coalition, and they are responsible for the murder of Talia’s parents. Therefore, Talia devotes her life and Talent (mind manipulation) to seek revenge and trains to become a Hunter, AKA assassin/spy.
In my opinion, there is too much lovey dovey junk that I could’ve lived without, but it’s not too bad. Lack of action was another factor. The only REAL action comes at the end, along with some surprises. The editing for the kindle edition also sucks a little bit, and someone needs to become acquainted with difference between was/were.
But overall, it was a good read! I would definitely recommend this for YA dystopian/paranormal fans.
