I was honestly not quite sure about this book when I first started reading it whether I was going to like it or not. It was a little slow in the beginning and took a couple chapters to really pick up. I am glad that I stuck with it though because I turned out to love it and now am looking forward to reading the next book in the series. I love fantasy novels and so this was ultimately a great fit for the genre that I love reading. Don't get me wrong, I love the real life drama and love stories and thrillers, but there is just something about fantasy that really...and I mean REALLY....draws me in. Maybe it is the inner child in me that I always wanted some sort of power. The novel features Indigo Children with extra powers. One thing that I did like was that the book was set in present time. The author did an amazing job making it feel like these kids could be among us somewhere in our everyday lives. It made me just want to try and find one of these kids and get to know them on a personal level. There was also a little bit of romance and suspense to this novel so it made it all the more interesting. I liked that the chapters were separated but that I did not have to go to a different page to begin reading. The way that the author did the layout made it a smooth and seamless read. I will definitely be keeping my eye out for the next book :)
4.5 Stars Growing up with special abilities is tricky business. It can be an amazing discovery to know you're not alone, but not when you're separated from the only family you've ever known. Especially not when your brother's kidnapped by an unknown agency who's trying to collect teens and young adults with unexplainable abilities. Characters: This is a multiple person point-of-view novel that follows the story line. Each voice is clear, adds to the suspense, and moves it forward. Personally, I love these types of books because we can see all sides of the situation. Did I choose a favorite? Sure, I actually totally dug Tyler. It might be because I understood him and where he was coming from. In my teens, I was in the wrong place at the wrong time a lot. On the other hand, I liked how sure he was. Not in a snobby way, but he had an inner drive to get to his brother and took risks without fear. Plot: No spoilers, y'all know that's not my style. The plot starts out feeling very fantasy like and turns into a more sci-fi blend. But there aren't over technical terms or mathematically built worlds that make you have to reread a page 10 times. It's a very subtle shift, and it's a very light layer of the science fiction feel. A SN: Loved the star children and the idea around them. World: The hardest part of sci-fi and fantasy built on Earth? Suspending disbelief. There wasn't much aside from the abilities that didn't jive. The author was consistent in her characters that if there were flaws, I didn't see them. That can be tricky when you've got government agencies tied in too. But it worked for me. Another SN: Aspirin. It's used twice in the book, and administered to the twins who are 16 years old. While I think it's a generic term in context (i.e. pain reliever). Children under 17 are advised not to take aspirin, and I'm not certain teens today would know to ask for it using that name. A nurse would never administer it to a child either because the risk of death is fairly high. It can cause fatality due to Reyes Syndrome. I point this out only because teens reading the book should know the danger of aspirin just like other OTC drugs. Overall it was an excellent read, and I want to read more of their story. I'm fascinated by the Star children and would love to see more of that side of the story. This is one to keep an eye out for.
Indigo Incite is an action packed story that introduces us to The Indigo Children. There has been a lot of research over the years about Indigo children who are born with extrasensory abilities. Think modern day X-Men; evolution at work in our world. This story has a little bit of everything. Mystery, romance, action, and psychic abilities. The characters are well written and easy to care about. The fun thing about this story is, it is not set is some futuristic world, it is set in the world that we live in, hiding in plane site. This is a wonderfully written story that will have you devouring each page, fighting side by side with the characters, and falling in love! I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Indigo Incite hooked me in from the beginning and I couldn't put it down! Jacinda Buchmann writes with a fresh voice and fascinating perspective. I loved the intriguing characters and felt as though they were real! I absolutely can't wait until the second book in the trilogy comes out! This book is a must read!!!
A slow but interesting read. The characters were different and the story line has promise. I just felt like the pace was a bit slow. I was looking for more through the whole book. I'm still going to read more of this series and author.
