I am in love! The first book in the Talented series, Talented, was brilliant. I can admit that I thought "There is no way it could get better than this. Great plot. Well-explained concepts. Exceptional characters. Unseen twists and turns. Cliffhangers. How can you improve on that?" Well, Sophie Davis must be a magician because she has managed to do just that and more in her second instalment in the series, Caged.

The end of Talented left me in shreds as seen below:

When Ms. Davis contacted me about reading her second book in the Talented series, I was in awe. The excitement was overwhelming and my memories were flashing back to the day when I was consumed with reading Talented and getting to know the characters all over again. What a privilege to be asked to read this 2nd book of hers. I was in the clouds of happiness for this sequel. As I so want to blab all about the details of this story, I won’t put any spoilers out. That was fantastic!!! We have all t...more
I’m on the fence with this one. It was like an exercise in frustration. I spent the majority of the book not liking the main character, Talia. A few times, I was so disappointed in her behavior that I actually considered calling it quits. I thought we were done with the love triangle pretty early in the first book (which I was happy about), but this book put us right back where we started and I just couldn’t wrap my mind around her ability to forgive lie after lie. I’m also not sure what either...more
So I love Sophie Davis and Caged is another reason why. I love her writing style and I love how detailed she makes everything. I did find Caged a bit slower than Talented but I realize that t was to give us backstory and I was still at the edge of my seat. I loved finding out the secrets right along with Talia. I did guess who the spy was and I kind of figured out the bad guy at the end but that didn't make it any less exciting or shocking when I got to those parts.
I feel like a lot more of the...more

Caged is book two in the Talented Series. Talia wakes up after a serious confrontation with Ian Crane (the man who supposedly killed her parents). She found herself in and out of treatment and confined for quite some time. Donavan (her ex) is back in the picture, a lot more than I prefer. I can’t stand him. Erik is almost non-existent, expect for his quick hello and goodbyes.

Book two in the series was a continuation of Talented, but not as good. It was too heavy on the descriptions. Talia’s mis...more
The first one was too good not to go straight to buy the second one!
Ater the cliffhanger ending the first book left me reeling in I couldn't wait to find out what happens in this one!
And I was not disappointed on no, because this book left me reeling even more!
Tha ending, blew my mind! I knew as soon as Penny was arrested that the Toxic was corrupt.
Poor Penny! My heart breaks for her and Talia! I'm for sure Mac has something to do with her parents death!

Wow. This series is definitely now on...more

10*s. I received an eARC copy of this book directly from the author in return for an honest review.

What an exciting and extraordinary story that captured me from beginning to end. This series is very addictive and enjoyable for not only YA but adults too. This is a Must read phenomenal series that is hard to put down. I love the twisted plot of this story even more than the first book. This is an Indie Author to watch out for in future stories to come from the Talented series and many more.

Interesting book. The entire series is very different than what I am used to reading.

Talia is locked up after being injected at her last mission.

Her job is to uncover which person is a spy working for the enemy. However, she goes through betrayal, fear, anger, doubt, romance and more to get there.

Excited to read the next one!!
Brittany Elsen
Caged is a perfect second book to an exciting series. Talia wakes up after the dangerous but yet intriguing confrontation with Crane. Unfortunately, Talia did not come out of the meeting unscathed; Crane injected her with a mysterious liquid. Now, due to this Talia has been taken off the main lines and asked to uncover the spy at the School for the Talented. As much as I hate Donavon, he is around a lot in this book and sometimes seems to be somewhat helpful. However, he made me hate him even mo...more

So have you ever finished a book and automatically need to read book two in the series? Well that is what happened with this one. I finished book one Talented (which is free on Amazon and B&N) and I just had to get my hands on book two! I was so involved with the story that it was hard for me to even put the book down.

Caged takes place nine months after book one ended. Talia had been injected with something and rescued but she hardly remembers much. All she really remembers is what Crane to...more

Ok, so if you have read the first book then you probably hate Donavan! I too hate him. I know that in parts of this book he is helpful to Talia but I DO NOT CARE! He broke her heart and I cried!

Now she has to work with him, what the HELL??? Did Sophie Davis really do this to us? WELL, it makes for one helluva story.

Not only is she emotional crippled because of all the abuse from Donavan but now she has to contend with seizures? This poor girl. I am not sure that many would be able to function...more
Book 1 was so good I immediately hopped on the internet and purchased this book. Unfortunately that means I have to wait to buy #3. That just means time to re-read the first too ;).

This book goes a lot, lot slower than the previous book, for good reason. The plot covers the ramification of Talia's solo misison. The book picks up about 9 months after her near-death and those long months of bed rest have really made Talia's personality shine.

A lot of mystery and less humor this time around.I manag...more
If you've not yet read Talented, stop here or risk spoilers for the first book in the series.

I loved this book from the very beginning, it's fully detailed and Sophie has a way to describe the characters and the story line perfectly, I honestly could not put it down, I loved the first book Talented and she gave me a copy of this one in exchange of an honest review and so, here I am as promised, thank you for another amazing story, can't wait to read Hunted, you really have a gift for writing beautifully, highly recommend it to everyone.....
I read book one as part of a facebook event and was given a copy of the book by the author in exchange for an honest review and a chance to win cool prizes :)
Now I have read three of Sophie Davis' books and I love love love her writing and it only increases with each book and I can't wait to continue this series, continue Blind Barriers and also start the Nightmare series. I must warn you this review will contain spoilers so look away if you have yet to read this amazing book.

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

This book kicks off 9 months after the end of Talented, after Talia escapes from Ian Crane's high-tech compound and almost bleeds to death while waiting for backup to arrive. After the whole ordeal, she is still suffering from seizures due to an unknown drug that was injected into her during her capture, she hasn't left the confines of her room, she hasn't had human contact other than her doctors, Mac and his wife, and, most depres...more

Things I liked about this book:

- Interesting society. The world building isn't as highly developed as I might prefer, but the portrayal of a somewhat fascist society is reasonably compelling.

- Characters can't always be taken at face value. Several characters have more to them than the initial stereotypes would suggest.

Things I did not like about this book:

- The main character continues to be a deeply unpleasant person. This makes the idea of her being at the center of a love triangle seem quite...more
Caged takes place a couple months after Talented ends and to be honest, it took a while to really get into the book. The first quarter to third of the book wasn't really all that entertaining. Talia is basically recovering from her injuries and dealing with her love/hate relationship with Donovan. There are all these explosive fights between them, Talia's unending complaints towards Ursula, and other annoying snobby teachers, and it was generally a bore. BUT, I repeat, BUT things definitely star...more
I was given this book in exchange for honest review (LoP). Amazing read! It begins where book 1 ends. I couldn't put this book down. Talia was captured in book 1 and injected with some drug. She now has seizures and is not a hunter. Talia is trying to find the spy. She does find the spy and you wont believe who it is I was shocked.
I'm still really enjoying this series! This one read more like a who dunnit, trying figure out who the spy is. There's still somewhat of a live triangle going on. It's still not clear who the bad guys are, but Talia is starting to figure it out.
Compared to the first book in the series (Talented), I thought Caged was a lot better written. There wasn't as much repetition in explaining the different Talents, which character were bad. As well as the specification of each Talent. Overall I throughly enjoyed the book. Natalia is slowly beginning to realize that the Agency isn't as good as what she was led to believe, and I'm happy that the love triangle between Talia, Donavon and Erik has been sorted out. I couldn't take the ignorance of fee...more

It's been 9 months since Talia was injected with an unknown substance and shot at Ian Crane's compound in Nevada. Since, she's had to learn to walk all over again, and has been dealing with regular seizures. Talia feels like a prisoner, she's been confined to her childhood home while recovering, with no contact with anyone, and her dream of being a Hunter on hold...possibly forever. So when the Agency director, Mac, asks her to go undercover at the McDonough School for the Talented to find the s...more
Quotable Books1
You know those books, where after you finish them, you just stare at the wall, and contemplate what you just read? Yeah, this book would DEFINITELY fall under that category. Sophie Davis once again does not disappoint in this sequel to Talented. She (author) continues to write the story in such a way that you can easily visualize everything that goes on (ESPECIALLY the characters feelings). This doesn't reveal any spoilers, but I liked how the author recalls events from the first book, instead o...more
I am somewhat obsessed with this series at the moment. Having read book 1 and 2 in a day. I liked the first book better because while I enjoyed the second instalment I found MANY things which annoyed me:

There is almost no Erik for 2/3 of the book. And Erik & Talia have not seen each other for 9 months.

But my biggest gripe with this story was Talia contemplating getting back together with lying cheating Donovan. I was really enjoying her vengeful side and while I don't object to her eventuall...more

Well, Well, Well, This book was brilliant from the start. Talia has a brush with death and find out that there is a spy within the agency and Mac enlists Talia's help to find the spy. I really loved this book, even better than the first as there was so much going on and lots of twists and turns throughout the book. I always thought i knew who the spy was and then the story would take another dramatic turn and i would be confused again. It was amazing and i can't wait to see what happens in book...more

This ebook was given to my by the author, Sophie Davis, through the WaAr group.

It started a little slowly with a few repeated facts about what happened before and in the gap between the previous book and this one, but it eventually picked up the pace and got back into the action and intrigue surrounding Talia's world.

The book continues to play on the love triangle stuff brought up in the first book but ended the way I hoped it would so although love triangle's aren't my favourite thing, at least...more

Natalia's story is incredible. I just keep delving deeper and deeper into this world of mystery and mayhem. Mayhem with a sugary sweet cover, but still Mayhem nonetheless. Talia is diving deeper and deeper into the Toxic world, and with each day arise more and more questions. Donovan and Natalia find themselves thrown back together, and I was happy to see them find some semblence of peace. Deep emotions are likely to last for quite a while, but it was nice see Talia finally discover her own desi...more

8 months after the brutal shooting from her solo mission, Talia is still recovering at the home of the Director,Mac and his wife,Grethen. Why is her healing taking so long? She was injected with a mysterious drug by Ian Crane and now she has been having frequent seizures especially when she overexerts herself or becomes too excited. Of course, sitting at home without contact from any of her friends is driving Talia up the wall. However, after she tells the psychiatrist what he wants t...more
