Another fantastic sequel to one of my favourite series ever, if there was one word I would use to describe this series it would be addictive. I can't get enough of this story especially when Sophie writes endings that just leave you hanging and gasping for the next book.

She never fails to amaze me with how high quality her books are. I have yet to find one fault with these books. The standard she works to in every one of her books is immense. Her hard-work and effort really comes through. Talen

Be ready for anything.

In the latest instalment, Sophie Davis holds nothing back - Talia and the gang are on a rollercoaster, orchestrated by Toxic and their personal decisions...and peril awaits on the other side of the void.

Toxic is precariously wavering on the edge of war. The people aren't happy with their laws, regulations and methods - and they're not afraid to speak up, and even rebel. Mac refuses to allow Talia to have anything to do with the fights, putting on the facade that everything
Reeling from the execution of her best friend, Natalia Lyons decides to accompany Mac to Washington DC. Mac will be overseeing the Talent Aptitude Testing and Talia will be assisting in the administration of the test.

Happy for the distraction and anxious to be reunited with Erik, Talia embarks on this new journey only to find huge fissures in what she has considers truth and morally right. With each discovering, shocking revelations are exposed. Talia must decide where her loyalties lie. Who ca

Hunted begins a few weeks after the end of Caged, book 2 in the series.

At the start of this book Talia believes she has been betrayed in the worst possible way by someone she called a friend. She thinks that this person was connected to Ian Crane, the man she has been training all her life to kill. She thinks this person has been executed and that her life can begin to get back to normal. But what is normal? What is the truth? Will Talia ever find out the truth or is she destined to go through

I started getting really annoyed with all of the characters in this book. I mean it is soooo obvious everything that is happening and has been since the last book and yet no one can put two and two together. Talia is just incredibly stubborn and refuses to use her brain at all, and Erik...well I just expected him to be able to think clearer than Talia and actually be able to figure stuff out. I mean they are all supposed to be super smart and capable, but then they cannot figure anything out unl ...more

I was gifted this book from the author because I think she was onto my stalking habits for her series.
I can’t tell you how excited I was to see this next book out. This is one of my favorite series and Ms. Davis is not one to disappoint in any way at all.
Talia and Erik have been sent on an assignment to help find Talented children that should be getting prepared to go to their school. The Coalition has been causing quite a bit of chaos for everyone. Talia is still trying to figure out what is wr

I won a paperback copy of this book from this amazing author and I am smacking myself for not starting it sooner! I have one word for this book.....SHOCKER!!! Like shock after shock, secret after secret. My heart and head were bursting. With each new instalment in the series I get more and more invested in the story and characters. This series is an addiction!! This series has at all.... romance, action, mystery and conspiracies, OH GOD!! It's really almost too much to handle.

OMG!!! amazing!

Holy Be-jezus!!!!

What a great book! It picked up right where Caged left off and took us on a wild ride, where Talia’s world has literally been turned upside down! Any suspicions and questions I had in the first two books were substantiated in this book and then some. I was left with my mouth hanging open and clawing at the sheets when it ended.

I have – and I’m not ashamed to admit this – begged the author for book #4.

It’s. That. Good!

This series just gets better and better, there are so many secrets and layers, but finally I get a lot of answers and then I get a few more questions which is fine cause I am so ready to back into this world and see the magic that is the Talented series unfold.
The lies and betrayal in this story run deep and at this point besides Talia and Erik I don`t know who to trust anymore, good is bad, bad is good, and it seems everything is being turned on it`s head, I feel for Talia her whole world is fa

"Hunted" is a wonderfully great addition to the Talented Saga. Talia has been ordered to go on a mission with the Director for the mandatory testing of children. Erik is scheduled to be there and she is hoping that she can spends some quality time with him over the three week duration of the exams. Talia's emotions continue to fluctuate all over the place especially after the execution of her BFF, Penny.

Prior to leaving for the mission, Donovan finally realizes he and Talia will never be more t

"Hunted" by Sophie Davis is the third in her Talented Saga and is another strong book by this talented author.
Set in a world where children with special talents (telepathy for example) are trained in the Agency, our heroine Tala is assigned to assist in a talent testing project. The Agency is under constant threat by its enemies and Tala in particular is a target.
All the while there is Tala's slightly complicated love life, beautifully set up in the previous books and portrayed delicately and in

WOW. Im am amazed. I am in shock. I cannot wait for the fourth book to come out this summer!!! I am absolutely in love with this series and this author!!! I think this was the best one so far. It was non stop action, love and drama! Its got more of a cliff hanger than the others but is just as satisfying.

WOW, Just when you thought this series didn't have anymore twist and turn your are proven wrong. I absolutely loved this book. One of the best books i have read in a while.

This book had me guessing what what going to happen next and then when i thought i new what was going to happen i was hit with another shocker. The book will make you smile, laugh, cry and yell.

I purchased this as an ebook from Amazon.

I think this is my favorite book of the series so far (who knows book 4 could blow this away). This book was full of mystery and suspense and Secrets are posed. Absolutely loved the book now I just need to wait for Book 4 to be released.

Loved the book so much I couldn't put it down finished it at 1.30am when I had a 6am start only got just over 4 hours sleep. So worth feeling exhausted over ;)

Now reality was preventing me from finishing what I started.  
Unbelievable book! I am at a complete loss for words after reading this book.  I liked that you were able to learn more about Talia's relationship with Erik throughout this book. I also liked that this books continues with the suspense of Talia trying to find more about who she is and figuring who she can trust. There were so many gripping moments throughout this book that will leave you completely shocked (which of course I can't go into detail about). I have to say that Hunted has been my favo ...more

10*s. I purchased my copy of this story from and I am ready to give my honest opinion. This is an awesomely invigorating story that caught me off guard and wanting to read more of it. I am still in love with these remarkable characters and the trials and tribulations they face in this story. Its a MUST read YA story that adults will love to sink their teeth into. I loved this book from beginning to end. The only part I didn't like was the ending and all of my questions that are yet un ...more

So far this is my favorite.
The writing was great, the storyline outstanding. I read this book right after I finished Caged, and I could not put it down until I was through. (two books one day)
I wish Donavan would grow some balls and stand up for himself.
I do would like to know what Gretchen's whole input on her husbands "job" is.
I knew that Penny was the prisoner from the train and I am glad they got her back and I am glad she is alive. I was thinking though that Harris would escape with them,

Wow! This book finally answered some questions. What was wrong with Talia? Who was the boy in the picture? Will Talia ever stand up for whats right? Will Erik ever get to see his family? Why was Penny so adamant that Talia give Crane a chance? Is TOXIC as horrible as some people think it is? Talia's powers continue to grow, as does the love she shares with Erik, and the animosity with Mac. I was blown away by all that happened in this book... yet not nearly satisfied enough because I need to kno ...more

I thought this was great book. I won't say to much don't want to spoil it for others. But I will say some questions I had got answered only to have more questions at the end. Talia's world gets turned upside down. Things she thought were the truth are not in fact that. Looking forward to the 4th book. ...more

This book series keeps getting better! The question that is mostly asked is who to trust? Sometimes it's those who are most unlikely.

Natalia Lyons learns this in this thrilling novel. She will be betrayed, find out secrets and realize that her life is a lie.

Overall, I really liked this novel and thought it was really good. I was really intrigued by it and can't wait to read the last book!

Need to take a break before I dive into the 4th book. This one just didn't hold my interest like the first 2, and I'm not really at the edge of my seat for the next book. I'm not ready to give up on the series yet though. ...more

The "twists" in this book can be seen from a mile away. I find this extremely annoying and it makes the book seem boring. Still tons of typos. Not enjoying this series.

Hunted was amazing!!! It was a complete rollercoaster for Talia and the reader. I was so saddened by Penny's supposed execution and Talia's condition that I wanted to scream. Davis did an excellent job in making me dislike Mac throughout all of the series and in Hunted I wanted to throttle him. SPOILER*****I hope he gets what's coming to him in Created and I hope Talia is the one who delivers it. I hate to say that I'd take great pleasure in watching Talia rip into his mind and ultimately kill h ...more

I received this book to give an honest review.

Sophie has done it again. You are taken into the world full of action and drama like no other. Talia is still "sick" and it doesn't seem like there is a cure. But what is really making her sick? Mac the director is wanting Talia to come and aid with the placement test that that children at the age of 5 have to take every year. Failure to do so well lets just say it is best to comply. Mac really does seem to be losing it within this story he is star

Great job Ms. Davis! Hunted was yet another great addition to the Talented saga and it's my favourite book so far! I absolutely devoured this book in a few nightly reading sessions until the wee hours of the morning.

Firstly, I think what I liked about this book more than the previous ones was the plot. This is because, contrary to Talented and Caged, Hunted contained one or two plot surprises, that I did not expect (although now that I look back on them, they were quite obvious, but oh well. I w

I love the Talented series!! Each one is new and exciting. Sophie Davis has done a great job creating the world for these books. Everything is so easy to imagine as if you were right there in the story.

The romance between Erik and Natalia is so sweet and only heats up in this book. I love how dedicated they are to each other even in the midst of danger.

The story was action packed and full of tension that practically jumped of the pages. I was intrigued by all the twists and turns the plot took.
