I've enjoyed this series from the first book and have found subsequent novels are each better than the previous. Talia has made a deal with Ian Crane for the help she needs to rescue Erik. Once he's back in friendly hands and conscious, he tells Ian everything that was done while he was held captive. Ian calls in the UNITED council to present to them the evidence they need proving Mac needs to be stopped.

There's a reason the use of the creation drug was banned, but that doesn't bother Mac. He ha
It seems it has all come down to this... Talia must align with who she thought was the enemy. She will battle those she calls friends. She must put herself and safety of those she loves on the line to reveal the true evil mechanization of TOXIC. The plot has come to a head and the entire world will become aware of the devastation the power hungry have caused.

I've loved the Talented Saga from the beginning but Created just might be my favorite one of them all. Sophie Davis out did herself with th

I first found out about this series at Bookcon 2014. I was running all over the place trying to find this one book only to find that the last two books were left. So I bought the 3rd one and got the rest for my Kobo. In a matter of weeks, I managed to read all four and I was astounded by all of them.

Talia Lyons is really unique compared to all of the characters I met before in books. She is brave, strong, fearless and loving. She wants to avenge her parents death but it's not easy. She learned

Action, action and more action! Gretchen's role was shocking because I never even counted her in all this although I should have. Don's death was sad.
Another fabulously amazing sequel!

I get so excited when I hear another instalment in the Talented series is ready to read. I have to firstly thank Sophie for another review copy.
She is awesome! Both as a writer and as a person.

But wow! I was expecting amazing but this just blew me away.
It was fast paced and packed with adrenaline pumping action that just kept you glued to the pages. I was helplessly compelled to read every word and I could not peel my eyes away for one second.. Not that I wa

I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

“Created” picks up right where “Hunted” left off. Talia along with the help of Ian plans on rescuing Erik from Toxic director Mr. McDonough better known as Mac. I enjoyed this book just as much as the rest of the books in the series. Secrets are revealed, lives are destroyed and most of all freedom seems to be no longer a choice of free will. Mac is determined to create more and stronger Talents in those he see as worthy. After certain events T

I really liked this one but it had something that kept nagging at me and that's why I gave it 4 stars instead of the usual 5.
I didn't like Talia this time around, she was too insecure, too late to respond, I can't even count the number of times she FROZE. I just didn't feel like she was herself. Confident in her abilities, super bad-ass-kicker. I just thought she would grow more as a character and not actually involve. With her new powers she should have been one of the best. But I didn't feel i

I just finished this book this morning and it was wonderful. I loved it just as much as I've loved all of the books in the Talented series. I love immersing myself in Talia's world and can't stop reading once I start unless my eyes won't stay open.

***Spoiler Alert!!! If you haven't read the other books in the series, don't read any more***

Talia has joined forces with Ian Crane, the man she vowed to kill from childhood as an act of revenge against her murdered parents. But things aren't always wh

More....more....more.....more.....I need more. I love these characters so much that I never want their story to end. Ever. Just keep writing them until there's nothing left. I love these books, characters, development, just.....oh my god. I want MORE!!!!!

Was that fangirl of me? Yeah, I guess it was. So I'm a fangirl of Sophie Davis. I just really do love her books. I can't wait to see if she comes out with a 5th in this series, and I want more of the other series' as well. Keep it going, Ms. Da

This was disappointingly short! Basically, one scene. And why the switch to Kenly? The -extremely - short story was well written & quite descriptive, but I am not sure I will continue with the series. The length of this book coupled with previous grammatical errors limits my interest in the rest of the series.

This book was mind blowing! There was so much action, adventure, and romance. I felt like this book could go on forever and I would never get bored!!!

It has all led up to this point, where Talia and Crane's forced unite to take down TOXIC. I love Talia's character, she is consistent throughout these books, yet continues to grow and development. She is strong and bright and stops at nothing to help those she loves. In this particular book she struggles with figuring out whether her decisions are

Poor Talia! She has some seriously hard realities to face in this book. Penny's (Talia's best friend) boyfriend seriously dislikes Talia. He is vicious to her! I think he is a real jerk, but Talia puts up with it because she feels guilty for turning Penny in as a spy.

Talia is forced to go to Ian Crane to help get Erik out of prison. Erik is beaten daily and forced to take the Creation Drug. Poor Erik! Ian Crane is not who Talia thought he was. He was a good friend to her family and cares deeply

While I enjoyed the return of a more kick ass Talia I was expecting this to be the final of the series and was a little disappointed not to have everything wrapped up. There were also several very minor things which bugged me. Specifically how everyone (including Talia) seems to blame her for stuff that is not her fault. While I thought Brand vitriolic hatred a bit unfair, especially as it is rooted in something that Talia had absolutely nothing to do with I get that he could blame her for Penny ...more

I love anything Sophie Davis writes, I have not read anything I haven’t liked by her! If you haven’t read the other books, please stop now because I am going to talk spoilers from previous books.

Deception continues to run deep in this series, and unfortunately it is not always my favorite element in books. I am just really glad that Penny turned out not to be the total bad guy. I was really hung up over that because I felt like Penny was Talia’s only chance for a real relationship. I still hated

This book starts off with Talia, with the help of Crane and UNITED storming the agencies prison to rescue Erik, Talia's boyfriend who was captured. There is so much to the story, especially in this book that made me so hooked. Talia has to go up against Mac, the agencies director who she grew up with and thought of as a father figure. Talia has been through so much, finding out that the agency that she grew up with is creating Talented human

I was given an ARC of this book by the author for review. There may have been a little begging involve. Maybe. Just a little.

OMG! I loved this book even more than the rest! Okay, maybe not more than book 1, but it was so freaking fantastic!!! We are completely invested by the end of Chapter 1 - finding out a dear friend was involved in the death of her parents, knowing at the end of the countdown she'll be on her way to rescue Erik. This book was full of action, suspense, love, and lots of supe

Definitely not what I expected to happen. I am saddened at how things happened with Donovan- I kept hoping for something good to come of all that and even though he saved her life, it was hard to let that storyline go. The writing is captivating and won't let you go. You will need to keep reading to find out what happens. The end of this book leads you to believe that Mac will finally meet his end, but truly, is Gretchen the worst one? Was she the one manipulating things? I hope it doesn't end u ...more

I was given an ARC of this book by the author for an honest review.

The first thing I want to say about the Talented Series is the the author, Sophie Davis, has talent!

I was in love with the story from the first book and I must say I loved Created as much, if not more, then the other books. It was so easy to get caught up in the story as the characters either get you to love them or really hate them.

There are so many twists and surprises in Created that nothing turns out the way you expect it t

I also won this book in Paperback from the author awhile ago and I couldn't wait to get started reading it. I found this instalment to be jammed with information, but there was also a ton of action throughout. But I am mad at where the book ended haha. It's kind of a cliffhanger, but more just I need to know what is going to happen! It seems with every book, old questions get answered but new ones arise. Even with all of that going on this one did read a bit slower for me.
I just love this series
Wow. Such a whirlwind of a book! There was never a dull moment in Created. I felt as though there was no delay between the events in Hunted and Created, which I enjoyed. Sophie Davis continues to dazzle readers in her ability to describe, in detail, the setting of the story and the characters emotions. I liked that this book focused a lot on the Talents and the Creation drug, making it very action packed. This book demonstrates how much the characters have changed, especially in their ability to ...more

I found the first of this series for free on the kindle store and thought i'd check it out. I then bought all of them and have thoroughly enjoyed every one. Talia is a wonderful and complex character and had me laughing outloud a couple of times. Some of the plots twists i guess fairly early but did not spoil the read for me. This series is a great dystopian series and is a little more mature than others of the same genre. I will definitely be recommending them to anyone who asks!

I'm glad the series is over. It ended how I expected it to, happy ending and all. But I can't help but feel disappointed. I guess I was expecting more from this series. The plot in the first two books is so different from this book. I guess I feel like this book was thrown together, the author wanting to wrap things up. I'm glad the series ended here. This book was already pushing the story plot.

This is the first book of the series that was actually interesting. Still a predictable plot, but the characters are less annoying.

Once again, the Talented saga has left me aching to read the next installment. Not only was Created an action-packed page turner, but also brought about a swarm of emotion within me--something not many books or authors have achieved. I laughed, I cried, I BAWLED at one point. Interestingly enough, I bawled over a character that I initially loathed. Oh Sophie, what have you done to me?!?

So...Created is Book 4 of the Talented saga. I was so thrilled that the book picked up right where the last one

This series kept me entertained for a number of days and I was excited to get to the “end”... to discover there is more to this story.
I felt that some parts of the story telling were irrelevant and this slowed the pace. I also have questions left unanswered, and when I invest myself in a series that takes so long I’d like to know the answers.
I’m not sure if there’s enough in this story for a fifth book- I think I’ll leave it here, while I’m still happy with my latest read.

Another great book! Overall, the book was a great read and I couldn't put it down! High on emotions, and lots of exciting action scenes. It was interesting to see what UNITED was all about for sure. Basically, all hell broke loose in this book and everything Talia grew up to know fell apart.

Although this book felt like the final chapter in this series, it's surprisingly not! I look forward to reading the next book.

This book from page one was difficult to put down. You never knew what was coming next. The events in this book just kept going. There wasn't any slow parts just a lot of action. Best of the series so far.
