Review- Hunted (Talented 3)
Author: Sophie Davis
Series: Talented book 3
Rating: 5 out of 5
In need of a distraction from her best friend's betrayal, Talia jumps at the chance to pack up and head to Washington, D.C., to have a purpose once again. She is tasked with administering the annual Talent Aptitude Tests, analyzing the children of the nation’s capital to identify those with powers. She knows that the Mandatory testing laws are controversial, but is still shocked by the protesters lining the streets of the city, and the curfew imposed upon its residents. These add fuel to her own misgivings about the Agency and its Director, the man who raised her.
As if Talia doesn’t have enough on her plate with that, the Director assigns her a task that will expose his dirtiest secrets. She soon learns that it isn't the children who are tested she needs to be concerned about; it's the ones who aren't. And when she encounters a face from her past, Talia must confront her toughest decision yet. Following her heart will put Talia and those closest to her in mortal danger. But the consequences of doing nothing are inconceivable.
The one bright spot in Talia’s new assignment is having her boyfriend, Erik, by her side. Because not only is Erik a source of comfort, but he is also as determined as she is to uncover the secrets behind the mysterious illness still plaguing her. Day after day, Talia never knows when she might be overcome by one of her unexplained seizures; she must pierce the veils of secrecy covering their origin, before someone decides she knows too much.
Life altering choices will be made. Loyalties will be tested. When the war begins, which side will Talia choose?
This series just gets better and better, there are so many secrets and layers, but finally I get a lot of answers and then I get a few more questions which is fine cause I am so ready to back into this world and see the magic that is the Talented series unfold.
The lies and betrayal in this story run deep and at this point besides Talia and Erik I don`t know who to trust anymore, good is bad, bad is good, and it seems everything is being turned on it`s head, I feel for Talia her whole world is falling apart, but I am ready to see her come back to her kick ass self, the girl I fell in love with at the beginning I know she has suffered but I miss her, but I know she will come out the other end victorious, she is armed with the truth now and I believe that to be a very powerful weapon. There has been a lot of build up and I can not wait to see where it leads in the next book, I feel some epicness coming my way (No pressure Sophie lol) I am so glad to see Talia and Erik`s relationship grow and stay strong, I know she will save him and I know things will be great for them and if that does not happen I am pretending it did. I am very glad I was right about Penny, I enjoy her a lot and I like what she does for Talia and I hope now that so much is discovered and out in the open she Penny will be more honest with Talia and their friendship will be stronger.
I know I have said it but DAMN I can`t wait to read more, and not just more Talented but more Sophie Davis, I love her writing and I love this series so if you have not got on the Talented wagon then jump on LAMOS cause this series is Amazeballs!!!!!!!!!!!!
