I still can’t believe I wrote a story like this. Psychics, evil conspiracies, action?! So unlike me. But this turned out to be the most character-driven thing I’ve ever written, with an ensemble cast of smart, complicated dudes whose friendships and rivalries add up to a hot, delicious mess.
Jin and Ken, the two central characters in Hidden Talents, were a blast to write. Jin starts out as a carefree baddie who loves to make trouble. But once he meets Ken, a strange teen with a dark past and a surly attitude, Jin finds himself changing in ways he never imagined.
This story has some dark themes in it. Central to the tale is the concept of Talent. Talent means superhuman power, and those who have it — Talents, as they refer to themselves — develop extraordinary physical, intellectual, and psychic abilities. Nobody knows where Talent comes from, but it often appears after a traumatic experience. Suffice it to say, many of the most powerful Talents in the books have been through some shit. So be prepared for references to past abuse, torture, rape, murder, and psychic mutilation.
Also be prepared for loads of sarcastic humor, sex scenes ranging from mean and nasty to slow and tender, and an international roster of fine-ass men who get in all kinds of trouble.
Ken, an enigmatic young Talent who’s just entered the real world after a lifetime of isolation and torture.
Jin, a devious Russian telepath who loves nothing more than to stir up trouble.
Lip, an affable Australian hunk who uses his razor-sharp intellect to watch out for his friends.
Mark, a bisexual Cuban-American whose dark charisma almost makes up for what a moody jerk he can be.
Sky, a beautiful, drug-addicted empath fresh out of the Osaka underworld.
Kel, a stoic intelligence expert from Senegal with little patience for dramatics.
David and Luke, lovely Irish twins with major issues, and their older brother Dylan, who just wants them to stay alive.
Aki, a self-exiled yakuza heir determined to overcome a devastating tragedy.
Jackson, a coldly charismatic precognitive with a secret plan in which all of the Talents have roles to play — whether they want to or not.
(Which one would u?)
