In fact, those closest to her are hiding the biggest secrets…
CAGED is Book Two in the TALENTED SAGA, the #1 Bestselling Dystopian Romance series about the life of a girl with extraordinary psychic powers, and what happens when a heart is torn between love and rage…
Review: The second book in the Talented saga was much better than the first one! It starts where the last book ended, Talia is recovering from her failed solo mission as a Hunter. Her body is fighting a chemical causing seizures- and Donovan, her ex, is confusing her by being there for her.
Even though he broke her heart when he cheated on her!
She’s also been separated from her current love interest, Erik, so her love live is pretty much non-existent. However, that’s probably a good thing considering what she’s been going through. Hopefully, assisting in lessons at her old school can provide a distraction.
Talia can still be a little annoying and childish, but at least this time I could understand why she was acting that way.
There’s a lot going on, sub plots withing the main plot that kept me interested in the story. I definitely preferred this one to the first one because I felt like I know Talia a little better.
The shock at the end was not what I expected! It’s crazy how you find out you actually don’t know a character like you thought you did! I had to pause to actually stop and go over what had just happened. Poor Talia.
However, I actually really liked this book- I was unsure if I would as I wasn’t overly keen on the first book in the series. I was definitely proved wrong on my original judgement. I was pleasantly surprised and I definitely want to know more now!
I may have to pick up the next one…
4/5 stars! I enjoyed it!
Thanks for reading!
