Product Description

About the Author

Susan Bischoff is an incurable romantic with a soft-spot for superheroes, those larger-than-life characters whose supernatural abilities set them apart from everyone else. Some are loved by all and known by none, some are woefully misunderstood and mistreated by those they serve. Traditionally, the life of the super-powered being seemed to her to be one destined for loneliness, and yet so deserving of a happily ever after. The Talent Chronicles series, which tells the stories of superhuman characters in a world that fears and persecutes them, was born out of her desire for happily ever after in the superhero realm. For superhero hook-ups! Superhero Romance! These are stories for those who love romantic storylines in television shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Smallville, and in movie series like Batman, Superman, and The X-Men. She's been known to say, "These are stories for people who wished Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor could have worked things out." Susan lives in Tennessee with her high-school sweetheart husband, a daughter, two cats, and one, big puppy. She loves most everything girly: sewing, knitting, and other needlework crafts, baking, doll collecting, shojo manga, and is particularly fond of things that are pink. Another favorite pastime is replaying the kissing scene at the end of the BBC's North and South.

My thoughts: Those who know me may have heard my quite loud and vehement protests against YA novels, so you might wonder what has happened that I'm reviewing a YA book. Well I confess: Hush Money happened! I gave it a chance because all the pro reasons (exciting premise, great cover and a wonderfully kind author) were overwhelming against the only one con: that it was YA. So I picked it up and couldn't put it down for hours! (Warning: Hush Money is highly addictive, so take care when you start reading it, you won't be able to stop reading after a mere couple of pages, or the famous "just one more chapter".)

So you might be curious or even intrigued to learn why Hush Money is so unique that it overthrew all my concerns (and maybe prejudices) about YA novels. So let's see:

1. The heroine Joss is no whiny teenage girl, she is just as strong, independent and kick ass as any adult urban fantasy heroine. She takes charge and solves her problems on her own.

2. But of course there is a perfectly dreamy hero to help her out and be her support, who is generous, brave, warm hearted and chivalrous. :-)

3. The synopsis/premise of the novel is freshly unique and exciting! It is action packed and will keep you turning the pages long after bedtime.. (trust me, I speak from experience ;-) lol)

4. Besides the two great main characters, the secondary characters are equally well developed and layered, offering a complex and colourful palette of characters.

5. And the thing that makes all the previous reasons possible: Susan Bischoff's fantastic writing! It is evocative, detailed yet fast paced. The action and characters leap off the pages thanks to her talent with words. She is a true story teller, and I cannot wait to read more about Joss & co.

I bought Hush Money after reading the teaser novella, Impulse Control, and I'm really glad I did. Joss and Dylan are believable teen characters in a world where possessing supernatural abilities is not uncommon, but is punishable by incaceration. I liked that Joss started off a little weak (eg, bullying scene with Marco, Jeff and Trina) but she came out stronger in the end. Dylan - I loved him despite the fact that he made incredibly stupid choices by hanging out with Marco and engaging in illegal activites. Marco was a pretty good villian too, although he came across as much older than the rest of the kids at times. Might be the evil in him...The only real drawback for me with the story was that there wasn't an explanation as to how none of the parents had abilities. Maybe it'll all be made clear in book two. Definitely giving that a read.

A debut novel with its own superpowers to entice you into a captivating storyline, with characters I wish I'd gone to school with!! (Not that my school life was boring....!!) This gem of a book includes all the ingredients of a memorable story - Romance, action, secrets, and, of course, superpowers!! All are woven expertly into a fast-paced, emotional drama that I just could not put down!!
Have downloaded the rest of the series that is available!! Yes, I was impressed and wanted more!! An exciting series beginning that I will recommend to my children!!

For Fairview High School students, Joss and Dylan, living with a secret has become second nature. In fact, it's a way of life for a number of families in their town. They hide their individual secrets, their Talent (special powers), from the National Institute of Ability Control (NIAC), which seems to sequester children with Talents at a special State school, where goodness knows what goes on! High school politics and keeping one's Talent hidden seems to be an impossible task.

Susan Bischoff takes us on a nail-biting journey as Joss and Dylan try to keep themselves and their friends safe from the NIAC while battling Marcus, another teen with a Talent, who seems bent on causing trouble and exposing Joss and her friends. We witness the beginning of a sweet romance between Joss and Dylan. The story is far from over, with a lot of questions still to be answered. I look forward, with great anticipation, to the next book in the Talent Chronicles. Get writing, Susan!

The cover is very enchanting, the way the mist-like feature is un-curling around her face is as if her secret is slowly becoming uncovered and being revealed. It also highlights the secrecy around her and others abilities but the honest importance that revolves around them.

Joss has a secret. She has a Talent. And those who have a Talent must be revealed... immediately. But when people begin to become forced into Marco, the schools bully's plans, their futures and reputations are put to the test as it is revealed that they are being threatened, in the worst possible ways. Through this adventure they will uncover who is to be trusted and who shouldn't. But will someone stop him and find out his deepest, darkest secrets? Or will they all be wound around his finger with no chance of escape.

I will be honest, I really disliked the protagonist Joss, at times. She came across as very weak and, at times, became very selfish and did what was best for her even if the consequences could scar others lives. However, then at times, especially where her new friends and family were concerned, she would fully expose herself, in a way knowing no-one would suspect her. This confused me as to why she didn't help others when it was not always obvious she was the Talent in question. She was very caring though and always tried to put her family before herself, even if it meant her Talent would be revealed.

The plot really surprised me, I wasn't expecting the true mass of suspense and danger that would really be involved and portrayed. Additionally, the secrecy and conspiracies around what really goes on in the research facilities was really clever and instantly grabbed your attention.
