Created by Sophie Davis 4 STARS 

Created (Talented Saga, #4)Synopsis-
When Talia runs away from the only life she’s ever known, she could have never fathomed the lengths to which the Agency will go to get her back. But if the Agency Director- the man who raised her, trained her, and made Talia who she is- can’t have her, he wants her eliminated. Now those she once considered friends are bona fide enemies, ruthless in their pursuit of her. 
Talia aligns herself with Ian Crane, the man she’d always believed was responsible for her parents’ murders. With Crane’s forces at her disposal, Talia sets off on her most personal mission yet: rescuing the love of her life from the Agency. But she never imagines that going after him will plunge the nation into chaos. Retribution for the lives of her parents is no longer enough for Talia. She wants justice for every innocent affected by the Agency’s greed. But she soon realizes she is actually at the center of two wars- one with them and one with herself. 
Talia can no longer trust the one thing that has never failed her. Her Talents are growing stronger by the day and she’s already losing control. Defeating the Agency will save countless lives, but triumph over the manufactured power within her will preserve her sanity. 
The Agency will stop at nothing to perpetuate their propaganda- that the Coalition is the enemy. 
Crane will do anything to expose the truth- that the Agency has been creating Talents for decades. 
Her world, her life, her future with the only person who remains true… the Agency stole everything. Now, Talia will sacrifice the little she has left to reclaim what’s hers.

Overall-This book was mind blowing! There was so much action, adventure, and romance. I felt like this book could go on forever and I would never get bored!!!

It has all led up to this point, where Talia and Crane's forced unite to take down TOXIC. I love Talia's character, she is consistent throughout these books, yet continues to grow and development. She is strong and bright and stops at nothing to help those she loves. In this particular book she struggles with figuring out whether her decisions are selfish or selfless and the effect this has on her frame of mind is seen throughout. She also struggles with the fall out from leaving TOXIC and joining Cranes team. Knowing things won't be easy is not the same as living it.
This book takes you deeper into the TOXIC history and further into Ian Cranes World and purpose. There are tons of twists and turns and revelations in this book, some heartbreak and some extremely powerful moments. This book has it all. As usual I fell more in love with Erik and Talia and loved seeing all my favorite characters make their appearances. I enjoyed getting to see and get to know Penny more, though I wish that I could have gotten to know her even better, maybe next book.

Both Talia and Erik grew a lot in this book. They were stronger together and apart. In their moment of weaknesses though they made each other stronger, which was beautiful.

I REALLY did not like Brand and I truly didn't understand his dislike for Talia, that bothered me a lot.
I Think that the one thing that I didn't care for in this book is that it seemed unclear whether there would be another book. Leaving an opening for a next book, perhaps Penny's story…seemed a bit of a copy out…But I absolutely love this series, its full of surprises and twists, with plenty of romance and action. Never a dull moment, thats for sure.

Overall, This series is so imaginative and beautifully written.
