Blurb: In the world of the Talent Chronicles, kids born with supernatural powers are taken from their families and forced into government research facilities called State Schools. At one such school, a group of Talents must work together to stop a dangerous experiment that's already killed two of their peers and threatens others. If they're caught they face Detention, and Detention at a State School has a whole different meaning.
Of course I'm morphing! It was hard enough taking the form of this skinny little girl, then add dodging the fireballs you made her throw at me, and now I'm supposed to be able to concentrate enough to hold it when she's fried my damned arm? Son of a bitch!
My thoughts: Impulse Control is the prequel novella of The Talent Chronicles by Susan Bischoff. When I started reading the first few sentences I had a bad clue. I'm sorry to say I was right. The writing style as well as the characters didn't work for me. Maybe the characters were too young and the romantic part of that story wasn't even romantic. It was more about both the first kiss and love you had in life. Nothing mind-blowing. Only the kind of paranormals could be interesting, if they were described in more detail. But I doubt that the novels of The Talent Chronicles are better or rather that they would work for me.
Impulse Control seemed to be an exciting story for young readers (10-13 years or so), but not for me in any case.
