Goodreads Synopsis

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

My Review

I loved, loved, loved this book!!!!  This book kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time.  There were so many twists and turns that I didn't want to quit reading this book.  I almost called off work to finish it.  The story was beautifully written and well thought out.  Being drawn into a story is very important to me.  I want to be able to see what the characters see, feel what they feel.  Indigo Awakening did not disappoint.  I loved how Jordan crafted a story that just hooked me and didn't let go.  

I loved that this book was about kids with powers. Different types of powers I always found books like that very interesting.  Rayne was an amazing character. I wouldn't have listened to my brother either.  I loved most of the characters in this story.  I was glad that the author switched POVs so I got to know them even better.  It is nice to get that little extra inside scoop.  Usually too many POVs would bug me, but it didn't in this story.  I wasn't confused at all with it.  I actually new who was talking the entire time.

Indigo Awakening was full of mystery, suspense, and was very action-packed.  I love reading books with strong characters, especially the females.  I want to see them strong and fight.  I really enjoyed reading this book.  The only little downfall I had with it was the romance.  There was a little something that may lead to something so I am hoping in the next book I get to see more of that.  I am a huge romance junkie!!!  Indigo Awakening is a book I definitely will reread.
