There are no secrets

Sixteen-year-old Tyler believed that his extra-sensory powers were a secret, but when his twin brother, Toby, is kidnapped by a covert government agency, he realizes that he has no secrets, and he has nowhere to hide.

He’s not alone

Now, to save himself and rescue his brother, Tyler must call upon the help of four strangers. Unknown to each other, Eddie, Liliana, Grace, and Sarah share a common bond. They are Indigo Children. With extra-sensory powers of their own, they must unite with Tyler to maintain their freedom.

Unexpected romance

They’re on the run. They’re on a mission. Romance is a distraction that Tyler can’t afford. But sometimes, the heart has a mind of its own.

Time is running out

Will they find Toby before the agency finds them first? Find out in Indigo Incite, Book One of the Indigo Trilogy.

This is a story that provides point of view from six different people. The first two are the main characters of the book, Tyler and Toby, sixteen year old twin brothers currently living with overbearing foster parents. Then we have Eddie, a college kid currently studying physics. Liliana, a Chinese American currently staying with her only Chinese speaking grandfather while her parents and grandmother are in China. Grace, a high school girl whose grandfather has passed away and she’s in a relationship she doesn’t really believe in. and finally Sarah, a pregnant waitress whose husband is currently away at war. All these characters have way more in common than you would think and it is Tyler’s job to locate them to save them from the same fate his brother is currently enduring. All of the characters are special in their own way and someone wants them bad enough to take them.

Tyler and his brother Toby have been extremely close their whole lives. They have always been able to communicate with each other telepathically, among other special traits they have. Their bond grew closer when their mother passed away and they were sent to live with their grandmother while their father was on business. One day their father just quit coming to see them. When their grandmother passes away they are forced into foster care and eventually end up with a couple that only wants them for the government’s money and the free labor. When Tyler gets involved in a shoplifting incident he is sent off to a military school and is away from his brother for the first time.  When he suddenly gets a message from his brother telling him he has been kidnapped and he needs to get away while he can and find these people.

Their adventure takes them from state to state trying to find this list of different people, all the while explaining to each one why they should leave everything and come with them. Only one of the characters really decides not to, even though she changes her mind late, all the others seem to pretty willing come right along. This all happens so easily. No phone calls from school or parents or anything. I’m really surprised that no adult asked them any questions.

There is a mild bit of suspense with this book because you are not sure if they are going to get caught or what is going to happen next but their aren’t really to many action scenes. I would have liked to see more running and close calls but I still enjoyed it nonetheless. It was interesting to learn who was after them and why.

The writing was decent although I did run into some grammar mistakes and some of the phrases used were a little repetitive.  The plot is interesting and held my attention through the entire book. There is also just enough romantic tension between some of the characters to add something different to the main plot.  

I recommend picking this book up if you are into reading about special abilities and secret government agencies. I look forward to checking out the next book in the trilogy.
