Talented - Sophie Davis
Talented is the first novel in the Talented Saga series. This book is free for the kindle. More teenage angst than I'd prefer, but the story pulls you in. Natalia Lyons is a 16 year old girl with a big talent. Talia was just nine when her parents were murdered by the Coalition. Talia was taken in by the director of the Talented Organization of Exceptionally Interesting Citizens (TOXIC). She's been honing her talent for the last seven years to become a hunter. Being a hunter will give Talia an opportunity for revenge on the Coalition and its leader. The man responsible for her parent's death. This book has lots of promise. The premise is great, and the characters are interesting. The problem is Talia's abundance of angst over boys. I could do with lots less introspection and lots more action, and not the kind of action Talia is constantly fantasizing about. Still, highly recommended.
