Hush Money (Talent Chronicles, #1)

Hush Money  - Susan Bischoff I'm normally not one for shorter books. I always feel that there isn't enough time to develop the characters, build the world, create relationships, ect. Well, Susan Bischoff has blown my theory out of the water! This book was just as amazing as any full length novel. Each character was rich, and vibrant, and just bounced off the page. The world she created, of talents that had to hide themselves from the world so they didn't get caught, was entertaining and very easy to relate to. Each character was just like you or me, only they have to hide a secret bigger that the ones we might have to hide, because their freedom depends on it.Joss was a great main character, she was scared and insecure, but also full of inner-strength, and she really grew into herself as the book progressed. Marco was a great bully, one of the ones that you love to hate! Kat was a quirky individual that reminded me of a few of my friends. Dylan was a great male lead/love interest. He wasn't the stereotypical perfect male that we see a lot in YA. He was flawed, and struggled to be a good guy, but sometimes made some very bad mistakes. He was also sweet and strong, and their relationship blossomed at a very realistic rate.Overall, this was a fantastic read! Action packed and suspenseful from the first page to the very last. I loved all the different powers that were displayed! I can't wait to see where Susan Bischoff takes this series next! It's going to be an amazing ride and I plan to read it as soon as I can possibly get my hands on it! I recommend this one to any YA, paranormal, or super-hero lover (and who doesn't love super-heroes???)!
