While the story in itself was good, and you learned more about Kenly, as well as being introduced to some new characters, I found that this book took me longer to get through. The narration was great, but I wasn't devouring this story as quickly as the others. I found myself impatiently waiting for Talia and Erik to appear in the story. A lot of people love reading / hearing about Kenly's story, but personally, I felt like the book was unnecessary as a main book of the series. I would have labeled this book as 4.5, rather than book 5 of the Talented Saga. Like I said, the narration was great, and the story was good, but I wish this book would have picked up where the cliffhanger of the previous book left off. I absolutely love Sophie Davis and I love the Talented Saga. While the previous books in this series only took me a couple of days to listen, this one took me a little over a week to finish. Love the series, and i can't wait to listen to the next book whenever it is released.

I absolutely loved this story! I wasn't sure what to expect, but by the end of the story I was hooked. I loved the back and forth between timelines and the different clues that are encountered along the way. The cliffhanger ending left me wanting more and I can't wait for the next audio book to be released! I definitely found my next series to be addicted to. Amazing job Sophie Davis!

Each book keeps getting better and better. Honestly, one of my favorite series, if not my favorite series, of books that I have ever read (listened) to. Each book is more captivating than the previous one. I constantly find myself staying up for hours and not even noticing because I am so wrapped up in the story line. The story definitely has a mix of "Divergent" meets "X-Men" and a love story that you find yourself fighting for as you listen. The world needs to watch out for Sophie Davis because this author has created a series that will have you hooked from the very first moments...

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.

Amazing!! Every book from this series is incredible. The cliff hanger leaves you wanting more. They changed the narrator for this audio book. It was really hard to get into the first chapter due to the voices being so different from the previous narrator, Angel Clark, who narrated the first two books. I constantly found myself tuning out, then having to go back and rewind constantly. Personally, I prefer Angel Clark a lot more. The voices of the characters sound more in sync to who they are compared to the voices that Tanya Eby created for them. I think if the authors found someone who had a similar voice to Angel, or could at least create a similar voice to the characters that we know, I wouldn't have found myself tuning out so much. Aside from the change in narrator, the story is amazing. I absolutely LOVE the love story that is Talia and Erik. Although, I was surprised at how weak, or timid or scared, that her character because in this book, like she couldn't stand up for herself. Between the love story, the suspense, and constantly wanting to know what happens next, Sophie Davis is able to create such a stunning story that constantly has you wanting more. Now, the agonizing wait for the next audio book to be released!

Sophie Davis does it again! This book was amazing to listen to on Audible. If I was reading the book, it would be an absolute page turner. Listening to the store was still a page turner in the way that you will NOT want to stop listening. It's romantic, of course the love triangle, adventurous, a mystery, and and an ending that will leave you shocked and wanting more! I can not wait to see what happens next!

Would you listen to Talented again? Why?

Absolutely. I was hooked after listening to the first chapter and couldn't wait to devour the rest of the book. Angel Clark is an amazing narrator and she makes the characters come to life. Book bub had posted an ad about the Talented series and I'm so glad that I gave the book a chance. Sophie Davis is an amazing author whose stories will grab you from the very beginning. When I started listening, I was immediately hooked to the book after one chapter. By the end of the book, I was hooked to the series. I can't wait to see where this story goes next!
