In this blog I will be reviewing ebooks I have read. I use an amazon Kindle, so much of the information will be geared towards Kindle users, but other ereader users should still find the information helpful. Many of the books I will be reviewing are free or low-cost books published by independent authors, my goal is to get the word out about some amazing authors that I think deserve more props, and to let you know which books are not worth the time reading. I am open to suggestions, about information you'd like me to add or new books I should check out and review.

Hush Money (Talent Chronicles) By Susan Bischoff

Type: Novella
Genre: Paranormal/YA/Fantasy
Price: $0.99
Grade: B+

What would happen if teenagers had secret super powers, and the government started to find out about them? The Talent Chronicles would happen!

This is a really interesting story, and a quite different take on the "teenagers with special powers" theme. It is fantastic yet believable enough to never have you doubting. The story is strongly character driven, but the characters are unique and interesting and you find yourself caring about them. They are also multi-dimensional and not defined only by their super powers, although there are a lot of tertiary characters with powers which can get a tad confusing when trying to remember who can do what. The main characters make the story, and they kept me reading it. Though they are supernatural teenagers trying to hide their abilities, they are still young and still have all the same issues that any normal teenager has, which makes a nice balance between the two aspects of their lives. And their issues are realistic without being too teen-angsty.
At first I thought it was just a cute story, but before long I got engrossed and couldn't put it down. I will admit that the moment I finished this story, I immediately purchased the second book. So it is worth a read, and a great value for the price.
