The Candidates

Title: The Candidates (also published as The Talents)

Author: Inara Scott

Rating: 2 stars

Summary: Dancia Lewis has a secret: whenever she sees a person threaten someone she cares about, things "happen." Dancia does all she can to stay under the radar, but when recruiters from the prestigious Delcroix Academy offer her a scholarship, she reluctantly accepts.

Review: It started off awesome. Dancia has these awesome powers and is selected to attend a prestigious boarding school. (We all know it's a special school that's going to train her) I was all for that. Surprisingly, no one knows about the magic-ness of the school so when one kids figures out about it, it's this big conspiracy thing. I was really excited because hello, magic school conspiracies are awesome! But instead of making the book about that, which the author should have, she instead focused on whether Dancia should be with Jack or Cam. Seriously? I had to fight the urge to throw this book against the wall when the school conspiracy concept was pretty much abandoned in favor of the stupid romance. I gave it two stars instead of one because I really liked the beginning.
