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 in order 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.

excerpt

I could just drive away, he heard Eddie think. I could keep going, never look back, and pretend we never met.
“You could,” Tyler said. “It’s definitely an option.”
Eddie looked, as expected, very confused. “I could do what? What’s an option?”
“You could drive away and never look back.”
“How did you know…?”
Tyler shrugged. “My brother’s not the only one with talent. It’s true; you could drive away, pretend that you never met me, but it wouldn’t put an end to all of this. My brother isn’t the one who threw a kink in your plans. The people who kidnapped him did. You’re damn lucky that my brother had the power to contact you. If he hadn’t, you could be in the same position that he’s in, right now. The people who took him want you, too. Like it or not, we have to rely on each other, if we’re going to make it through this.
“Now, I need to get my bag. Can I trust that you aren’t going to drive away, once I get Eddie gave him a half smile.
“Go ahead. I’ll wait right here.”
Tyler checked on Eddie’s thoughts one more time. Once he was certain that his new friend wasn’t going to leave him in the dust, he jumped out of the Jeep and yanked on the door handle of Kirby’s car. It was locked. It couldn’t be. Kirby never locked his car. He walked around the vehicle and tried each handle, but to no avail.
Eddie got out of the Jeep and came to stand by his side. “Car’s locked I take it?”
“Yeah, he never locks the car.” He slammed his hand on the roof.
Eddie sighed. “Just add breaking and entering to my police record, along with kidnapping.”
Tyler glanced at him. “You’re going to break in? Do you have a lot of experience with breaking into cars?”
Eddie scowled. “No, I don’t. Until I met you, the idea of breaking the law never crossed my mind. Do you see anyone coming?”
Tyler peered up and down the aisle of parked vehicles. They were parked in the back of the lot, and thankfully, there was no one around. “Um, nope. Looks clear.”
“Good. This should just take a moment.”
“What will? What are you going to do?”
Eddie grinned. “You and your brother aren’t the only ones with powers. Watch and see.”
He placed his right hand on the door, slightly above the handle and placed his left hand near the locking mechanism. In less than ten seconds, Tyler heard the click.
“Voila.” Eddie smiled and flourished a hand toward the door. “One unlocked car, as you wished.”

Indigo Incite FinalI enjoyed the premise of Indigo Incite: teens and young adults with special powers join forces to save a boy who was kidnapped.  Sixteen year old Toby was taken because a secret branch of the government wants to study his telepathic abilities. His twin brother, Tyler, is determined to rescue Toby.  Through a series of telepathic exchanges between the twins and his own psychic visions, Tyler sets out to find his brother.

It is interesting watching this quest unfold; a vision or clue leads Tyler to another gifted person who agrees to help.  He enlists five strangers on his mission, each one also in danger of being kidnapped because of their various powers.  This sci-fi/ paranormal adventure is a quick read, and I thought it was entertaining and original.

I enjoyed the story, the writing, the characters and especially the dialogue.  The telepathic conversations were fun, and they lead to a few romances along the way. I enjoyed the psychic abilities, aura reading, telekinesis,  teleportation and telepathic conversations the gang employs to find Toby.  Ironically, the paranormal aspects of the book were much easier to believe than the fact that none of the characters had to check in with a loved one back home.  They just leave to find Toby, and while a few had cover stories, they did not call home or have people try to reach them.  This is my only complaint about the book.

I would recommend Indigo Incite to any aged reader who likes paranormal YA.  The plot is original and well crafted, the language and romance are clean, and the adventure is engaging and suspenseful. -kris
