Blog Tour: Indigo Awakening (The Hunted #1) By Jordan Dane

 


Indigo Awakening (The Hunted #1)
Release Date: 12/18/12
Paperback/e-book
304 pages
Summary from Goodreads:
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.


My Thoughts
Indigo Awakening was a fun Sci-Fi book about Lucas and Rayne Darby. Lucas has always been different but Rayne has always been there to protect him, until now. Once their parents were dead and Mia, their older sister, has control she hands Lucas over to an asylum that want to lock Lucas away in the disturbing Ward 8. However Lucas escapes before that can happen and we find that there Lucas is not crazy but an Indigo Child. A child in the next evolution of humans and Rayne wants to find him before he is experimented on and ultimately killed. Rayne teams up with Gabe Stewart and they set off to find the rest of the Indigo children.
This was a fun take on the mutant theme that runs through our society. Will the children ever be accepted or will they be outcasts of society like the X-man? I enjoyed the story but there seemed to be to many narrators and it jumped around a lot. However it was a fast paced ride and lots of fun. I cannot wait to find out what happens to Rayne, Gabe, Lucas, and Fiona!
