Blurb- 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.
Review- Ok where do I start? I found Indigo Awakening very hard to get into. I found that I couldn't lose myself in the story or invest myself into it. I found it quite confusing, but jumping from about 5 or 6 different points of view will do that to you. I think that was the most frustrating part. There were some characters points of view that would come into the story who I hadn't even heard of in the story until that point. I personally wasn't able to make a connection to the characters and I didn't find myself drawn to any of them either.
I found the writing a little jumpy and had trouble trying to keep track of where I was. It didn't seem to me that there was any real explanation of the "Indigo children" until way down the track in the book and by that time I was getting fairly frustrated with the story that I lost interest.
It's safe to say that Indigo Awakening just wasn't for me. Usually I really love teen and YA books, but this one I think should definitely stay within that age group.
