REVIEW: Gifted (Gifted, #1) by Jenny Phillips

Plagued by recurring dreams of a faceless, yet strangely familiar man, and struggling to adapt to unique powers, Morgan Cauldwell moves halfway across the country to Manchester Academy. Once at MAC, Morgan meets the mysterious Chase Thomas. He knows more about Morgan than she knows about herself, and through him, Morgan learns she is Gifted. With the help of Chase and the Gifted Council, Morgan begins to learn how to control and develop the powers that have kept her isolated her whole life.

While the mysteries of her dream man begin to unfold, Morgan’s powers quickly surpass even the Council’s expectations. But how much power should one person be allowed to possess…and at what price? Morgan finds herself face to face with her worst nightmares, where nothing is as it seems and not all Gifted are content with the powers they’ve been given.

REVIEW: Gifted was a really enjoyable read! I admit to it taking me a little while to get into it, but once I did, I couldn't put it down.

Morgan is definitely not like any other girls her age. Strange things happen to her and around her. Things that she can't explain or control. Things that she keeps hidden from everyone else. And then there are the recurring dreams of a man who's face she cannot see. After the death of her grandmother she is drawn to travel across the country to attend Manchester Academy. It's there that friendships are formed and she catches the eye of fellow MAC attendees Nolan and Chase... Yes, there is a bit of a love triangle but really for me there is never really any competition. I know who I would choose straight up!! However it's through Chase that Morgan learns about her gifts. And through the Gifted Council she learns to harness and control those powers. 

Jenny Phillips has created a book filled with action and suspense. She has created characters that you cant help but to become invested in. And through her words you can't help but feel a whole range of emotions as you get taken along by her storytelling... And that ending!! I can't wait to see where the author will take us in the next book as Morgan continues her journey.

A definite 4/5 Stars!!
