Created (Talented #4) by Sophie Davis

Blurb:

(Off Goodreads)

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.

My Review:

The fourth book in the Talented series is a riveting action packed adventure.  When those she considered friends become enemies, Talia runs away and aligns herself with Ian Crane to rescue the love of her life, only she never imagined that the mission would plunge the nation into chaos. She soon realizes she’s fighting two wars, one with herself, as her talents grow stronger, she’s losing control.

This steady to fast paced plot keeps readers on their toes with lots of suspense, action, and drama.  The author describes the scenes and events with well written details that capture the imagination and spine tingling anticipation builds throughout with the escalating danger on several fronts for Talia and her friends.  The characters are strong, compelling, easily related to and grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning.

There is some romance between Talia and Erik as their relationship continues, but this urban fantasy is more about suspense, drama and action, which the reader easily get caught up in.  Talia certainly makes a great heroine, she’s confident as well as insecure, questions her powers and what’s happening, loyal to her friends and what she believes in and getting stronger as the story unfolds.  She’s not the only character that arouses the reader’s curiosity, there’s lots of characters with spectacular talents and charismatic personalities that draw the reader deeper into the story. 

The author has created an intriguing world with endless possibilities and I found this story to be enjoyable and entertaining with lots of twists and turns to keep me guessing.  The added spice of the characters not knowing for sure who trust adds some additional spice to the story as well.  I have not read the first books in the series and I was completely caught up in the story from the beginning however, I do feel that I would have had a better understanding of the world and how the characters got to this point if I had, so it is my recommendation to read the series in order.
