Book Review ~ ‘Indigo Instinct’ by Jacinda Buchmann ~ 5 Stars!
Wow! Jacinda Buchmann has done it again.
I’ve been eagerly awaiting ‘Indigo Instinct’ since I finished ‘Indigo Incite’ and my god was this an amazing follow-up.
The characters were one of the things that really drew me into Book 1, and yet again they were written to perfection, not at all out-of-character, and seamlessly continuing on from Book 1 without any unrealistic change in their personalities. Liliana was wonderful as always, and having her in the gang is just one of the things that makes the whole group connect so well. Her innocence, yet fierce determination to protect those she loves is beautifully contrasted with the more reserved Grace, who grew on me so much in this chapter of the Indigos story.
What really pulled the punch for me in this novel was Sarah and Ian’s storyline. I loved the caring and devoted friend Ian played towards Sarah in Book 1 and one of the things I was most excited to see in this book was how their relationship played out now that she had had her baby. I was so intrigued to see how their close relationship could be rocked out of balance if something happened to her husband who was fighting in the army, but also to see whether Ian would react on his obvious feelings for Sarah, or play the martyr and remain her friend. Their relationship was beautifully played out in this novel which is something that I can’t wait to see progress in Book Three. I loved how truthfully Jacinda Buchmann approached this development in their relationship, making Sarah’s despair at the loss of her husband entwine with her desperation to keep her child safe, and to make sure that her feelings for Ian wouldn’t come between that.
The suspense in this novel was brilliantly paced, and I loved how the seemingly peaceful and quiet summer for the Indigos slowly became more and more menacing before they ended up hiding at every turn and conducting escape missions. I was on the edge of my seat throughout these scenes and could only take a deep breath after every chapter before I was compelled to dive back into the story and the turmoil that the Indigos were experiencing.
Jacinda Buchmann has such an incredible writing style, and I’m always in awe when I effortlessly flow through her books because of the beautiful pacing of the story and the brilliantly developed characters that I just can’t put it down. I always feel as though I’m experiencing the story rather than reading it, which is the sign of a truly talented author. She can write the sweet, innocence and fun of first love and the heartbreaking, yet beautiful hardships of a love that can never be.
A true pleasure to read, and this series is not to be missed.
