Coalition. It concerns different philosophy over the treatment of the humans who have certain gifts the talented.
Set in the not-so-distant future, this dystopian novel lays out a world changed from chemical spills. The effects not only changed the land, but the humans as well- with everyone having special abilities and the country stuck in a Civil War, what is there to do but fight?
Even among gifted and Talented people, Talia is special. With strong mental abilities, she is being trained as a weapon to fight the rebels and bring an end to the Civil War- but is she on the right side?
Fighting to avenge her parent's murder, Talia focuses on one thing: training. The desires to get stronger, become a spy, and kill the rebel leader who killed her family fill her mind. With her best friend/boy friend, Donavon, by her side, everything's going according to plan.
Until he betrays her trust, and breaks her heart.
Trying to keep her world from crumbling, she trains harder, goes on more missions, and relies on her new friend, Penny, and her team-mates. Especially the strong and always-there-for-her Erik.
Surprises and uncovered lies start popping up everywhere, and nothing is what it seems. Can Talia sort out the lies, and follow her heart? Or will orders rule her actions, and keep her from the truth, and love?
I recommend this book to any YA fan, esp those who enjoy action packed books with strong female leads.
Now 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 others feelings.
Now Talia is involved with the head honcho's son Donovan and Talia is determined to prove that she is not receiving special care and that she can handle her own in situations. Talia is set to graduate and become a full fledged hunter but what will her assignment be? Can she even carry it out? Heck what is up with her boy issues? And how much power does Talia actually hold within herself?
For all these answers and for an even more awesome read you have GOT to get this book and not only fall in love with the characters but the story line!
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 in a way what they are going through.
I loved Talented! I enjoyed the whole storyline, the idea of the Talented and how they ended up where they are now and how they were "created". I felt like it was a pretty unique background story. I also liked reading about the types of Talented and what their abilities are. I liked the kind of love triangle that was going on and I loved all of the sexual tension. Talented flowed really smoothly and it made for a quick entertaining read. By the end of the book, i really want to grab book two and get started.
I loved most of these characters, if you have read the book you know what I mean. Talia was a great heroine to read about. She had overcame a lot in her young life. She always pulled out on top and was the bigger person. I'm hoping now that she can somewhat settle down and be happy. I want to read all about it. I really like Erik but I wish that he would have told Talia earlier about scummy scumbag. I also enjoyed how Erik and Talia would bicker back and forth and the sexual tension, oh my! I also found Henri to be a fun character and I hope that he gets a spin off.
Overall, I loved this book and I can't wait to carry on with the series and see where the characters end up. I would recommend this book to paranormal readers. But I would suggest having book two beside y to pick up when you finish book one.
