If what you're saying is they're "special" in the same sense that no two individuals are exactly alike (one might be stronger, one faster, etc.), then yes, I agree with you. But does that mean they're "gifted" in the sense that they have a power? I doubt it.

Okay it was smart of her to use Fred as a kind of sheild, but later on in the book, like when the newborns are all training for combat they forget to include Bree and they don't notice her when she's watching them train, kind of like she's invisible. This could just be because she keeps her head down in general and they'd forgotten about her, but she seemed to want to be invisible and not noticed, which made me think it was more willfull than them just being ignorant of her. I could be wrong about it though, it was just my impression.
by ringswraith » Mon Jun 28, 2010 3:26 pm I disagree with regards to Bree's having any special ability at all. They did mention that Raoul's power only worked on certain people, and Fred did let her near him consciously- she mentions the effort it took for her not to feel like retching whenever she tried to get near him. Lastly, if she had some kind of resistive ability, one would reasonably expect Jane, Edward, or Jasper to have noticed this during the conversation in the field
