When Talia runs away from the only life she’s ever known, she could have never fathomed the lengths to which the Agency will go to get her back. But if the Agency Director- the man who raised her, trained her, and made Talia who she is- can’t have her, he wants her eliminated. Now those she once considered friends are bona fide enemies, ruthless in their pursuit of her.
Talia aligns herself with Ian Crane, the man she’d always believed was responsible for her parents’ murders. With Crane’s forces at her disposal, Talia sets off on her most personal mission yet: rescuing the love of her life from the Agency. But she never imagines that going after him will plunge the nation into chaos.
Retribution for the lives of her parents is no longer enough for Talia. She wants justice for every innocent affected by the Agency’s greed. But she soon realizes she is actually at the center of two wars- one with them and one with herself.
Talia can no longer trust the one thing that has never failed her. Her Talents are growing stronger by the day and she’s already losing control. Defeating the Agency will save countless lives, but triumph over the manufactured power within her will preserve her sanity.
The Agency will stop at nothing to perpetuate their propaganda- that the Coalition is the enemy.
Crane will do anything to expose the truth- that the Agency has been creating Talents for decades.
Her world, her life, her future with the only person who remains true… the Agency stole everything. Now, Talia will sacrifice the little she has left to reclaim what’s hers.
I received this book to give an honest review.
Let me say I love the world that Sophie has created with the Talented Series. But this book seemed to fall short with what I was expecting. There was a lot of action and for the most part the action scenes were intense. But the action towards the middleish to end (yes I know middleish is not a word but it sounds like what I am looking for) seemed to easy! I figured Toxic would give up more of a fight but it slacked for me. Also Talia, seemed so much more different with this story than in the others. I know she gets most of the answers she has been looking for but its like she has let it change her more than it normally would. Through out this series I have always wondered how strong is Talia and in this book we learn she is pretty dang strong. We happen to lose a character in this book, and in a way it breaks your heart. We meet new characters and our old characters develop their powers even more. Makes you kind of scared of them in a way. I hope there is a book five because even though this book did not leave you with a cliffhanger you still feel as though there is more to tell. What is going to happen to Alex, Penny, Talia, and Erik? Will the Coalition win in their battle against Toxic and stop what they are doing for good?
