Talia is a character that is written in to be well-liked, vulnerable, and established. The surrounding characters - Henry and Erik - were also very strong. Together they completed missions while using their talents, but becoming victorious was not the only thing that was on their minds. They all got caught up in a romantic love triangle. These missions were fast-paced, engaging, and full of suspense.
Talented is a great book that was well-organized, well-written, and very entertaining. The author paid great attention to detail - the cover stood out, the editing was great, and the plot was not bouncy. These are all things that I look for before granting my five star rating. I approve - five stars!
Aghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh what a cliffhanger!
Donovan [ never liked him. He's such a dirtbag. Ugh I hate him so much]
Erik [ perfection! Ugh I am so in love!!! ]
Talia [ I liked her in the beginning, until she started acting like a typical annoying female character]
Guesses [ Mac scares me and I think he planted ians name in her head because she hated him. How did Mac know to go to the hotel? Idk I don't trust him. Him or his son. I am thinking Ian might be a good guy. Or maybe they should think like Erik and stay in the middle]
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.

Lam able to foreshadow but I never saw Donavon's betrayal. Nor his dismissal at the note.Read more
