In a world in which psychic abilities are punishable by imprisonment, a girl must choose between keeping her secret and doing what’s right to save a friend.

Hush Money is the introduction of a very original new series about teenage superhumans. While in a world where talents are know; our characters are still not accepted and in many cases feared leaving these them in hiding. When unexpected events bring several of our characters together they find theirselves having to use their abilities to survive. This is a story of surprise and unveiling that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.  Bischoff has created a strong cast for this book that includes a variety of unique talents and personalities. With so many characters authors run the risk of readers disliking particular characters; Bischoff overcome this obstacle superbly. The nature of this story wrapping the various characters and abilities reminded me a lot of the Darkest Powers series by Kelley Armstrong. Having been rarely used the superhuman ability/talents are very interesting aspect for this debuting novel. Bischoff will mark her place in the reading circles with her first novel, and I look for much more to come. My first impression of this author is nothing short of awesome. She appears to be a bit of a risk taker in her writing, and it has proven successful in making a new bestseller in my book. As a self published novel I enter stories lightly not knowing what I am going to find, and this is nothing short of a diamond in the ruff. On further inspection it looks as though there are already plans for a second book in the chronicles. Be on the lookout for Hereos 'til Curfew that unfortunately at this time does not appear to have a release date available.
