When I first picked up ‘Talented’ I wasn’t sure if I could really get into it. From the summary it didn’t entirely sound like my kind of book and I was a bit skeptical to be honest. However I was proven wrong very quickly, ‘Talented’ is a good book and it pulled my attention in
Talia, is talented, like the rest of the kids that she went to school with and now she is training to become a hunter. She is working very hard to put her special abilities to good. Also on a more personal level she wants to get her revenge on the man that killed her parents, Ian Crane.
The elements in this book really make you think outside of the box. They have a lot of elements that are very futuristic and it really makes you start thinking what if our world really functioned like that or turns into that. A lot of the things were very cool to read about. Some of the technology that she created in this book is advanced and would be awesome if they really had, I’m sure it would help the government and Special Forces.
I really like the plot in this book. You see a teenager girl trying to find her place in the world without her parents and really trying to find people to trust. Meanwhile she has these talents that she is putting to use. It was a really nice dynamic and I really enjoyed the book. It has a lot of twists and turns that kept you on your toes. It was a wonderfully written book and the ending kept you hanging. Therefore I am dying to read the sequel! I give it four stars!
