About the Author

Char Webster is the author of the Gifted Series, a young adult/new adult urban fantasy with a lot of mystery and suspense and some romance mixed into the story. Reading and getting lost in a story has always been Char Webster's favorite things to do. She has also had a love for writing, which led her to her daytime career in public relations and marketing. After years of writing for others, Char decided to write something for herself. The Gifted Series fulfills a lifelong dream of creating a world where people can escape reality for a little while. Char’s world centers on a race of people with special abilities that hide in plain sight. You could be standing right next to one and never know it. Discovery and Exploration have both been nominated for the 2016 Indie Book Awards and also the Summer Indie Book Awards for 2016. Discovery spent six weeks in the Amazon Top 100 (two weeks in the top 25) for Paranormal & Urban Fantasy. Char Webster loves living in South Jersey because she feels like it is in the center of everything.

Kate is a school psychologist called in to help three foster kids who have been bounced from house to house. Kate connects with the children and decides to foster them herself. Along the way, she discovers the two oldest children, Alex(andra) and Zach, have unique "talents" that also place them all in danger. Can Kate keep them safe, even after she has unique talents of her own? I enjoyed this book. It was an easy, enjoyable read and I look forward to reading the next in the series.

Char Webster created a world full of suspense, twists and turns. What would you do if you discovered that you are gifted with a super natural talent. Well in this book you will take a ride with the characters as they learn to navigate the dangers of being hunted for who they are. Great read...

Oh Char, why do you do this to me? This book has been skipped so many times and now I regret it since its so awesome. Now let's talk about Mr. Dickhead or Brooks as you call him. Can he just die? I hate him so much and so does everyone else. I need Nick and Kate to end up together but the dammed association forbids it for a good reason *cries* I hope Brooks dies in the second book or I will riot!!!

Amazing!!!! This book was amazing. It was such a great start to a new series. This story had me hanging onto every word from the very beginning of the book. This story has some great characters in it. I was unable to put it down and finished it in one sitting. I can't wait for the next one.

What starts off as a 'normal' story about a young woman and her foster kids, quickly becomes something completely different - with mysterious men popping up at unexpected times, new abilities being found, old abilities becoming stronger, and threats, to name but some. With a new Discovery in every chapter, this book is very well written, with no editing or grammatical errors that I found. The chemistry between Nick and Kate jumps out from the page at you, but it is still unclear as to whether or not they will end up together. I loved the supporting cast of friends that turned up towards the end of the book. This is an intriguing story, with no clear definition of 'good' and 'evil'. Are the good guys really good? Are the bad really as bad they are made out to be? I don't yet know for sure, but one thing I do know is that I can't wait to read Exploration, the second book in this series. * Verified Purchase on Amazon * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. All Kate wants to do is help the kids who lost their parents some months ago. But things happen that change her whole outlook on life, and what happened to her own parents all those years ago. Finding out your ability to sense emotions is a gift, and that gift is what might get you killed is enough to send anyone over the edge, but Kate just wants to help the kids. Add in two men after her attention, a madman who wants the kids and Kate, and some long held rules, and you got a really good book. Because I did enjoy this, for the most part. It is, I believe, the first book by this author, and in places it shows. Midway, the book seems to runs away with itself and the strength that showed in the book in the first half seemed lacking in the second. But! I still enjoyed it! Kate is totally blown over by all that happens after the kids arrive, she meets Nick and Robert, and all her past comes to light. I loved that we don't get it all in one go, it comes in dribs and drabs and you have to put it together yourself. Loved being made to wait for it, I really did. I also loved that we got to hear from everyone. From Kate and Nick, from Robert and the kids. From the bad guy and his henchmen, and from one of the kids the bad guy already has, who wants to get away. Oh!! Loved that little hint, there, Ms Webster, loved it! It is clean, just some kissing, but it does contain some kidnapping and murder threats, so I'd rate it upper young adult, maybe 15 plus. I'd let my nearly 15 year old daughter read it, if she were that way inclined, but it pains me that she isn't. Pains me deeply, because I'm fairly certain she would love this one. For a first time author, and the first in the series, a great start. This story will run on into the next book, because, while not really a cliff hanger, the story is left open ended and there is a great deal more to come. I'd really like to read them ( even if they are young adult!) 3 solid stars **same worded review will appear on Goodreads,,, Kobo and Barnes and Noble**
