Earlier this year, I reviewed Indigo Incite, the first installment of The Indigo Trilogy by Jacinda Buchmann.  It is about sixteen year old Tyler’s attempt to rescue his twin brother, Toby, from a covert government agency collecting people with extra-sensory powers. This agency is seeking out all “Indigo children” to use their powers for its own gain.  Along the way, Tyler befriends four other people with special powers, and they work together to find Toby before the agency finds them all.  As of today, Indigo Incite is .99 on Amazon.

The adventure continues in Book Two of the trilogy, Indigo Instinct.

Indigo Instinct for Kindle


They thought they were safe.

Identical twins, Tyler and Toby, escaped the clutches of a covert government agency determined to exploit their extrasensory powers. Before they regained their freedom, they acquired proof of the agency’s existence, proof that was guaranteed to secure immunity not only for themselves but for their friends as well.

They took more than they bargained for.

When the brothers learn that they have unfinished business with the agency, they find themselves reunited with Indigo Children, Liliana, Grace, Eddie, and Rebecka and once again on the run.

They must rely on their instincts.

While Grace and Eddie discover that love isn’t always easy, Sarah’s life is thrown into turmoil, and her guilty conscience leads to fear and distrust of her own heart.

Intuition doesn’t lie.

There are new players in the game and it isn’t easy to know who to trust.

Sometimes the right path isn’t always the easiest.

Is there a way to give the agency what they want and still retain their freedom? Find out in Indigo Instinct, Book Two of The Indigo Trilogy.

“What the hell was that all about?” Eddie hissed from close behind.

With her back to him, Grace continued to fill a pitcher with water at the drink station. Then she turned to him with an innocent grin. “What was what all about?”

“Did that guy give you his phone number?”

“What difference does it make? You’re here with your girlfriend. It would seem to me that you should be paying more attention to her and less attention to who I talk to. It’s really none of your business.”

For a moment, she imagined tossing the ice water over his head but didn’t think that would go over well once word got back to Aunt Mae, as it surely would, so instead, she set the pitcher on a nearby table and took a step away to resist the temptation.

“It is my business. You were the one who just informed me yesterday that trackers are after us again. Do you really think it’s safe to be flirting with strangers?”

“You’re questioning my judgment? You brought your girlfriend along. What are you going to say when the bad guys show up at your motel door? Are you going to make time for introductions? ‘Hey, Jenna, let me introduce the IIA.’” She rolled her eyes and shook her head. “For a smart guy, you’re pretty dumb. I can’t believe you brought her.”

You told me to!”

“I was desperate to get you here. I didn’t think you’d actually bring her. You couldn’t have just sent her home?”

“Grace, I’m sorry. I should have told you about her earlier. I just… I didn’t know how.”

She shook her head again. “Whatever, Eddie. You made your choice. I need to get back to work. There’s a table waiting to order.”

She swiveled around to go, but he placed a hand on her arm to stop her. “Grace, wait.”

She focused to keep her face expressionless. She would cry later. Not now. “What?”

“Don’t trust that guy. Don’t trust anyone right now.”

“Oh don’t worry. I don’t. I don’t trust anyone.” She nodded her head toward Jenna. “Especially her.”


I really enjoyed this sequel – perhaps because I was familiar with the characters and their powers, I was able to hit the ground running with their next adventure.  While some questions were answered in Book One, several more problems come to light as the twins and their friends try to stay one step ahead of the agency after their extraordinary powers.

Like the previous book, Indigo Instinct is fast paced and entertaining.  Many of the characters come of age as they work together in this new mission. They trust and love and doubt and fear  – they plan and execute, adapt and regroup… it is very exciting to watch the characters work individually and together in their common goal.

I really enjoyed the dialogue and how the author used conversations to develop the characters and move the plot along.  The mission has an urgency about it, and the story flows quickly.  There are many surprises along the way, and I don’t do spoilers.  And sequels are tough to review, because you don’t want to spoil the first book either.  I will say that this is a wonderful continuation of the story, and if you enjoyed Indigo Incite, you will really enjoy Indigo Instinct.
