My Thoughts_thumb[1]

This is the second book that I have read about the Indigo Phenomenon/Indigo children and I thought Jacinda Buchmann did a good job with the story. I found it interesting and engaging. It was very dialogue heavy and that allowed you to get to know the characters easily. I felt like I saw each of the characters different personalities through their dialogue.

The story initially centers around twins Toby and Tyler, but they are soon joined by others with special powers. I enjoy superpower books and telepathic skills have always fascinated me. I just loved listening in on the different conversations they each had, and I thought the author did a really good job varying the abilities that the characters possessed. I found it all very interesting. Aside from the cool abilities, there is a very fast paced plot. There are government agents looking for kids with powers. One of the twins (Toby) is taken and his brother has to round up a group of other Indigo Children to try and help him find Toby. Plus the government wants them for their own. I thought the storyline had plenty of twists and turns to hold my interest. It was always moving, always something happening. But it wasn’t all just action and suspense.

There were more than a few cute moments thrown in throughout the story. I really enjoyed Tyler and Liliana’s relationship, as well as Toby and Rebekah. I thought they each had a cute dynamic. I think I enjoyed Tyler and Liliana a little more because I just thought their telepathic conversations were too funny. I felt like they were the comic relief in the story.

I’ve noticed that a few people said it took them a couple of chapters to really get into the story, and I had the same experience. I found the story a little slow in the beginning, but after the first 4 chapters or so the story really got into gear and I was hooked. Indigo Incite is much more of a plot driven story than a character driven story. I myself am typically a character driven reader, but I found the plot exciting and interesting and it left me wanting to read the next book. I will warn you that there is a pretty big cliffhanger at the end of this one though.

    I’ve never read anything about the Indigo Phenomenon but I am intrigued! I’m glad the slow start didn’t pull you away from it but it’s good to be forewarned. I do like the sounds of this one! Great review, Michelle!

    I haven’t read any books in this series yet however I’ve added them to my TBR stack. I like humor and romance so will definitely like to read these books. Thanks for sharing your review.
