Because of what you are, the Believers will hunt you down.

Voices told Lucas Darby to run. Voices no one else can hear. He’s warned his sister not to look for him, but Rayne refuses to let her troubled brother vanish on the streets of LA. In her desperate search, she meets Gabriel Stewart, a runaway with mysterious powers and far too many secrets. Rayne can’t explain her crazy need to trust the strange yet compelling boy—to touch him—to protect him even though he scares her.

A fanatical church secretly hunts psychic kids—gifted “Indigo” teens feared to be the next evolution of mankind—for reasons only “the Believers” know. Now Rayne’s only hope is Gabe, who is haunted by an awakening power—a force darker than either of them imagine—that could doom them all.
This is the first book I have read by Jordan Dane and I loved it! It was very different then the kind of books that are out there now, and I fell in love with every single character.  I've heard of "indigo teens" before, but I didn't realize how big of a thing it really is. I thought it was very interesting that Dane is writing a series around it.

After Lucas' parents died, his older sister had him committed to a mental institution because he was "different". Years later, Lucas escapes. His other sister, Rayne is the only one that cares for his well being, and goes to look for him. While in LA she meets up with Gabe. Gabe is also different and has special abilities. Gabe tries to stay away from people, so he doesn't hurt them. The characters were the best part of the story for me. They were written so perfectly. Gabe was my favorite. I loved learning about him and his past. I also felt really bad for him.

I also enjoyed the different view points. We heard from Gabe, Rayne, Lucas and even the bad guys. The multiple points of views really brought a lot to the story.

From page 1 I was immersed in the story and the lives of these characters. It ended on a major cliffhanger, and I can not wait to see what is going to happen next!

  1. I was not a fan of On A Dark Wing, but this one sounds really cool and I like the different points of view.
