Because of what you are, the Believers will hunt you down.
Voices told Lucas Darby to run. Voices no one else can hear. He’s warned his sister not to look for him, but Rayne refuses to let her troubled brother vanish on the streets of LA. In her desperate search, she meets Gabriel Stewart, a runaway with mysterious powers and far too many secrets. Rayne can’t explain her crazy need to trust the strange yet compelling boy—to touch him—to protect him even though he scares her.
A fanatical church secretly hunts psychic kids—gifted “Indigo” teens feared to be the next evolution of mankind—for reasons only “the Believers” know. Now Rayne’s only hope is Gabe, who is haunted by an awakening power—a force darker than either of them imagine—that could doom them all.
Let’s face it. I’m a visual person and .. this cover? There was no way around this book for me! I was intrigued, fascinated and immediately hooked by cover and the premise. Special Gift? Bring them on!
Colorful Cast of unique Characters with special Gifts!
The most striking point about Indigo Awakening is the incredible cast of characters! Written in 3rd POV, the story shifts between the major kexyplayers which let’s us get glimpses into different aspects of this story! Also, Jordan Dane truly has a wonderful way introducing all characters and making us care for them pretty fast. Moreover, the whole plot and world building was amazingly played out. Not revealing too much and keeping an aura of mystery and secrets that will keep us glued to the pages.
Gabriel – Lucas – Raine and more
I absolutely adored all the characters and I do not want to go into much detail about all them and just want to point out my favorite and most striking ones. Gabriel captured my heart the easiest and the most! He’s one of the kids with “gifts” and he’s living as an outcast when Rayne finds hime. Gabriel is broken, tortured but has the strong to potential to kick ass! Definitely my favorite kind of contradiction! Filled with guild, he doesn’t want to let anyone close— but the he meets Rayne.
And, she#s the other amazing character I feel for in this book! I loved her! despite being only 17, she’s strong independent, loyal and a wonderful caring and empathic girl. she’s one of the few ones without a gift, but that doesn’t bother her as her heart is strong! All she cares about is keeping her brother Lucas save and later taking care of Gabriel!
Powerful Story – Twisting Plot
The whole story was fast paced and full of amazing twists and turn. It was never a boring page to be found! The plot moves on mercilessly and does not gives you much time to breath! It was a great and amazing ride! The Gifts of the kids were a great idea, and a paranormal element I absolutely loved. Even though some basics were explained, I would have wished for a little more explanation about the gifts and how they work. But I guess this will be dealed with in the next book
Indigo Awakening by Jordan Dane is a phenomenal start in a unique new paranormal series that is highly unique and fast paced. Especially the characters were developed with uttermost care and love and will easily find a place in your heart! I cannot wait for the next book in this great series!
