Overview

After her brush with death at Ian Crane's compound, Talia Lyons feels like a prisoner, confined in her childhood home. Plagued with seizures- the result of an unidentified drug injected in her neck by Crane's men- Talia must put her dream of becoming a Hunter on hold. So when Agency Director McDonough asks Talia to go undercover at the School for the Talented, to find the spy who set the trap for her in Nevada, Talia jumps at the opportunity.

Soon she learns that her new-found freedom comes with a price- working with Donavon on a daily basis. As if that isn't awkward enough, her former teammate, Erik, also shows up at the School. But at least Talia has the unexpected company of her best friend Penny; to not only assist her in uncovering the spy, but also to deal with the complications that the guys create.

As Talia becomes more entrenched in her assignment, she quickly learns the lengths that the Agency and Mac will go in the name of war. With Crane's influence spreading, Talia learns that there are few Operatives without ties to the Coalition. Forced to face hard truths and dangerous conclusions, Talia realizes that it is those closest to her who are hiding the biggest secrets. As the task of finding the traitor becomes more problematic, desperation and frustration rule Talia's world. It becomes clear that Talia can't do this alone. But who can she trust, when everyone around her is lying?

So, this book sealed the deal with me on this series. I feel that I have so many Feels going on that I am having FEELS seizures while I'm reading these books. I am so deeply invested at this point that I am crying, rooting, and I really REALLY want to kick Donovan in the crotch... How did she not figure out that he had a kid with that blonde chick? The moment I saw her grab the picture I was like, "That two-faced cow." I love how this story arch is written. There are a few reasons. I love how the parents of Donovan are acting like what he did is normal and ok, and that Talia should basically just deal with it because, "He really does love you." But then I SOOOOO appreciate Miss Davis as an author writing Talia as forgiving but not trusting Donovan and realizing that she does 'love him' she's just not in love with him. It was a great way to flesh out that relationship and not turn Talia stupid. She is aware that his actions were wrong, and that he does keep lying to her. It makes me feel so much better as a reader that their are authors out there and make it NOT OK for men to cheat and for women to stand up for themselves when it happens to them. There is so much I want to say about this book and I feel like I will just drown on like an idiot. I do think the author doesn't trust her readers with the world. She did a lot of repeating of the events of the first book in the first three or four chapters of this one. Giving the readers a subtle recap in the first chapter through the mind of Talia would have had us flowing a lot better. I believe having a few more honest and strong beta readers on her side will flush out this minor issues with the story flow. There are still some grammar errors I would like to see worked out. Missing words, wrong words, that sort of thing. Nothing that drew me from the story too much, because if I am being the honest the power behind the story and the writing is much stronger than the little errors sprinkled throughout the book. I still say that this book is better than Divergent. I think where Divergent when wrong was trying to push the readers limits so much she made them all start acting uncharacteristic by the second installment and it totally pulled us from the enjoyment. This story doesn't do that. All the characters are holding true and they are smart, powerful, and the ones we aren't supposed to like--well, we don't like. I want to continue with this series SO BAD! I will be grabbing the rest of the series up to date once I am more caught up with some books I'm behind on--its gonna kill me, but it must be done! Again, you like Divergent.. I say grab this series, I think it will make you feel a lot better in the long run. *I received a copy of this book from the author via Lovers of Paranormal Group on Goodreads in exchange for an honest review.*

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 of making readers pause and think about previous events. This book at first, is a little slow, but I think it was done to build up the suspense. Yes, there is much more suspense in this book, more so than the first, with a smattering of contemporary themes. You will see characters being tested both emotionally and physically throughout this novel. This book is filled with drama, romance, betrayal, and suspense and I absolutely recommend this book to anyone, especially those who of course enjoyed Talented.

Talia's world has been turned upside down, and this time, it isn't romance, or not entirely. Nine months after being rescued,she still hasn't fully recovered from her failed solo mission to Nevada. Severe injuries and blood loss have contributed to a slow recovery. No one knows what was in the shot she was given when she was taken prisoner. Seizures and leftover weakness have kept her all but a prisoner in her room in the director's home. Now he needs her help to locate a spy. The very one responsible for her almost dying. Asked to work undercover at the school, her job is to get close to the suspects and figure out which one is guilty. Unfortunately, this puts her in daily contact with Donovan. He's still keeping secrets and he's not the only one. Talia uncovers more than she anticipated in her search for the traitor. More than one person hiding secrets is afraid she will uncover something they don't want her to learn. Davis has done it again. She captured my interest so thoroughly that I stayed up too late because I couldn't put the book down. Just who is the bad guy in this series has become a good question right about now. Once again I'm caught between wanting to say what happens and not wanting to spoil the book for someone else. I'm anxious to dig into the next book to see what happens and would love to see this series continue for several more books. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Okay, so after the first book ended, I immediately got this one. Mac thinks that Natalias trip to Nevada was a trap and that they have a spy in the Agency. I loved how everytime Talia thought she had found a lead on the spy, she finds out something else to suggest otherwise. I mean the book doesn't go in circles, but keeps you on the edge of your seat. It builds up so many theories that at the end of the book when you find out who the spy really is, you are completely shocked. I couldn't put the book down! It was filled with suspense! You won't regret buying this book!!!!

Ok I like this book a lot but after everything she learns the consequences of not using her mind reading powers more she decided to let the two most questionable people leave walls up and lie when she talks to them. Its really frustrating that she doesn't understand already that she can't trust donavon or mac its sad that she continues to blindly follow them...

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 told her about what the Agency does to innocence people. Talia is still dealing with her feelings with Donovan and Erik. I found myself giving Talia a high-five in my head for not making things easier with Donovan after what he did to her. I love how Talia's temper gets out of control, it just goes to show how much power she truly has but I don't think she fully understands that.  Now there will be secrets that come to light and Talia is NOT happy that things have been kept from her. Towards the end there is a OH WOW didn't see that totally coming and I was glad for that surprise.  There is so much drama, action, feelings written within the story that you just find yourself lost within it all. I know my favorite character is Talia because even though she is in a weaken state she doesn't back down and I LOVE that.  The Talented World that Sophie keeps giving us is just full of surprises and is wonderful written that you can not put the book down. The characters are so well written that it is truly hard to say I like this character better than this one. And there is a huge cliffhanger at the end that I have got to get my hands on book three as soon as I can!!!

I really loved the way the first book brought out suspense, Donovan really made me angry at times and he was the biggest jerk ever!!!! Man i really need this second one to see Tal in action again. Spelling errors at parts but really great Sophie D

I got the first in the Talented series as a free ebook and enjoyed it. Each book in the series got better. It surprised me...so many of the 'free reads' are okay but this is a really good series. Thank you Sopie Davis. I can't wait to read the next step of Talia's journey.
