“I feel safe here, I feel like I can be me.” pg. 45 Hunted by Sophie Davis
In need of a distraction from her best friend’s betrayal, Talia jumps at the chance to pack up and head to Washington, D.C., to have a purpose once again. She is tasked with administering the annual Talent Aptitude Tests, analyzing the children of the nation’s capital to identify those with powers. She knows that the Mandatory testing laws are controversial, but is still shocked by the protesters lining the streets of the city, and the curfew imposed upon its residents. These add fuel to her own misgivings about the Agency and its Director, the man who raised her.
As if Talia doesn’t have enough on her plate with that, the Director assigns her a task that will expose his dirtiest secrets. She soon learns that it isn’t the children who are tested she needs to be concerned about; it’s the ones who aren’t. And when she encounters a face from her past, Talia must confront her toughest decision yet. Following her heart will put Talia and those closest to her in mortal danger. But the consequences of doing nothing are inconceivable.
The one bright spot in Talia’s new assignment is having her boyfriend, Erik, by her side. Because not only is Erik a source of comfort, but he is also as determined as she is to uncover the secrets behind the mysterious illness still plaguing her. Day after day, Talia never knows when she might be overcome by one of her unexplained seizures; she must pierce the veils of secrecy covering their origin, before someone decides she knows too much.
Life altering choices will be made. Loyalties will be tested. When the war begins, which side will Talia choose?
I gave this book 5 out 5 stars
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 favorite so far in this series. This book is emotionally charged and will leave you completely breathless and desperately in need for the next book in the series. (Yes, I would suggest that you have the next book ready to read).
