TALENT TO BURN
Rating: 4 Cups
Cat Wilson works as a bartender and waitress to support herself. She is all alone in the world since her father died and hiding from a shadowy organization that still has her brother. She was unwanted there because she had no measurable Talent.
Jamie Murphy is a bad boy from head to toe and works for an organization in direct opposition to the one Cat escaped from so long ago. He has a Talent; finding people and things, which is very useful and often dangerous.
Cat and her father escaped the Grey Institute many years ago and have been on the run every since. Since her father’s death, Cat is alone. They left her brother Eric behind according to his wishes and she really never expects to see him again. Eric has left the Institute and has been connected with a fire and murder. Jamie saves her from some shady characters and says that he will help her find her brother. She does not know if she can trust him, but has no one else. It turns out that she is not lacking Talent after all, but that is not necessarily a good thing.
Talent to Burn is a very exciting novel that is nearly impossible to put down. Cat and Jamie are very appealing characters; outsiders who find each other in a dangerous situation. Eric is not so sympathetic at first, but he grew on me. I loved the action and romance in this roller coaster ride of a story. The author has a definite gift for describing both characters and settings and that really enhances the very well written story. I look forward to reading more of her work.
