He’s not alone
Now, 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.

Time is running out

The Review:
I couldn't be happier that I chose to be part of this book tour and review Indigo Incite for all of you. I didn't have any expectations diving into this novel but it was nothing less than a wonderful experience. The concept, indigo teenagers trying to stick together to save themselves from imprisonment while at the same time attempting a rescue mission, is interesting and action-packed. "Indigo Children" is a term used for people who are able to use a part of their brain only available to those with a slightly difference in DNA, which gives them access to special abilities. These abilities vary from healing powers to telepathy.

There are tons of characters in this book. I love how all of them are unique in both personality and dialogue. Their abilities vary, which makes for some interesting scenes between the characters. I enjoyed the connections that happened between certain characters and the understanding all of them shared about their common goal. There is a little bit of romance in this novel but it does not overpower the story and only adds a different layer to it. I really liked the pairings and I am looking forward to exploring their relationships in the next novels. 

Some chapters were a bit slow, probably because this is the first book in the series and it was used to set up the story and its characters. However, the majority of the novel was fast-paced and kept my interest.  Even though I had some issues with the placement of some of the commas throughout the novel, I still enjoyed Buchmann's writing style and the way she set up her story. 

Perfect for fans of the I Am Number Four series, Indigo Incite is a fast-paced and absolutely thrilling read.  

Note: Indigo Incite will be free from February 20th through February 22nd! So make sure you download your copy! :)
