*REVIEW* 'Talented (Talented Saga #1)' by Sophie Davis

Reviewer: Donna
Rating: 3.5 Stars
When Talia Lyons was just a child, her parents were murdered before her eyes. Unable to accept their fate, Talia trains to become one of the country’s deadliest assassins in order to kill the man responsible. Luckily, she was born with a gift- the ability to read and influence the minds of others. At sixteen, Talia’s poised to graduate from a school for the Talented, where she learned to control her abilities. Now there is only one obstacle standing between her and the retribution she craves... the feelings and distractions of a normal teenage girl.

If Sookie and 007 had a love child with a yearning for vengeance, her story would be TALENTED.
I was really pleasantly surprised when reading this book. The story did start out quite slow at first but towards the middle of the book it turned around and became a book i couldn't stop reading. This book, being the first in the series sees Talia trying to adjust to being a trainee hunter at the school for the talented. She has all the other dramas of a teenager girl to work through especially boy trouble as well as becoming a full fledged hunter. I did like the characters a lot, especially Erik. I liked the way the author gave a back story so that i could understand the characters better as if she didn't, i don't think the story would have enough meaning and might have been a bit confusing. Overall i liked the book a lot and i'm now going to read Caged, book 2 in the series.
