Publisher's Summary

When Talia Lyons was just a child, her parents were murdered before her eyes. Offered a choice between accepting their fate and exacting revenge, Talia trains to become one of the country's deadliest assassins in order to kill the man responsible for their deaths: Ian Crane. Luckily, Talia was born with a gift - the ability to read and influence the minds of others.
At 16, Talia is poised to graduate from the McDonough 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...Talia, herself.
Her greatest asset may also be her undoing; while a formidable weapon in the field, Talia's talents prevent her from both shutting off the mental connection she shares with her questionable boyfriend and blocking out the thoughts of a beguiling fellow recruit. But Talia can't afford to have the feelings and distractions of a normal teenage girl, when her life is far from normal. She must regain the single-minded determination that has brought her this far, or it may cost Talia her life when she finally faces Crane. And even after being molded in to a weapon of war, she'll still have to find the strength it takes to pull the trigger.
If James Bond and Sookie Stackhouse had a love child with a yearning for vengeance, her story would be Talented, an adventure about powerful teenagers who aren't afraid to embrace their fears and fight for what they believe in.

AUSOME BOOK!

What did you love best about Talented?

Everything, i can't wait for the next one :) Narrator was really good too, and loved the slightly dark tone of the book!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Talia, I felt like I really understood a lot of her issues

What does Angel Clark bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She really brings the characters to life, I felt like I knew them.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes, but I also needed a brake to think about what was happening and anticipate the next part. It's what makes it fun.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait till the next one!!! HURRY UP :)

Sophie Davis spins a fast paced tale in Talented. I quickly became invested in Talia and her world. Angel Clark does a fantastic job of bringing this story to life. I am eager to read more in this series
