Publication date: September 7th, 2013

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, in order 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.
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.

I always love fantasy books that have a basis in real life issues and scientific mysteries that are arising in our own generation.
‘Indigo Incite’ has am almost modern-day dystopian feel to its style, with the corrupt government using their power to collect talented individuals whose powers they use for their own gain.
I absolutely adored ‘Indigo Incite’, and all of the characters that I was introduced to throughout the story. I loved feeling sceptical of who to trust when it came to looking out for the fivesome as they journeyed their way to find Tyler’s brother. I really liked how realistic the characyers were, and that the world didn’t just stop so they could go on their adventure. They had to work around their daily responsibilities, and especially hard for the younger members of the group, they had to find a way to escape for a few days without their parents or guardians knowing.
The reminder that money was short and that using mobile phones could lead to them being tracked gave a stark realisation that trying to hide and keep yourself safe in the modern world can be an extremely hard and dangerous job. Having Eddie and Sarah as slightly older and more mature characters made the book relatable to a wide range of readers, with the younger members giving some sweet light relief as we see their minds being often occupied with teenage matters such as romance, as well as making the novel very original in its main characters being so very different and yet all having a great power in common.
I loved the relationshios that were formed between the gamg and especially Eddie’s conflicted feelings for Sarah and Grace. It’s so rare in a book that I feel sympathetic fora character who has feelings for a married woman, but Eddie was so genuine a guy that I knew he would never let his feelings be a burden for her.
I also squealed in excitement at the idea of Indigo Children. When I was studying Psychology at University, I was always intrigued by the idea of Indigo Children, especially when working with children on the Autistic spectrum. I really admire how Jacinda Buchmann created this other, unseen, part of the world and made it seem not only realistic but also food for thought that maybe science is discovering something aboutIndigo Children, and at what lengths certain organisations would go to harness this little known about power for their own gain. I also liked how obviously well researched this novel was in the psychological side, with a young boy with Autism showing similar powers, particularly as Autistic savants were what first brought the idea of Indigo Children to the table.
Sorry for that Psychological splurge there…I will get back to the story… 😛
Sarah’s character and her relationship with the ex-tracker was beautifully done. I loved his protective side and how he found his new calling to protect her unborn child after living in exile for the past few years. I liked the hints of romance between many of the characters and am excited to see which of these will grow further in the rest of the series.
An action-packed, thoughtful and beautifully heartwarming read, as a wonderful group of characters come together to help Tyler find his brother, and to protect themselves and other like them from being used against their will.
