An Enchanting YA Paranormal Thrill Ride! Jan. 29 2013
By Stephanie Ward - Published on
Format: Paperback
4.5 Stars

'Indigo Awakening' is a truly enthralling first book in a new YA paranormal series by bestselling author Jordan Dane. It follows a group of teens known as "Indigo" kids. They are different from other people - they have special gifts and are the next step in human evolution. Although these Indigo kids just want their freedom and the right to live among everyone else, a group of religious fanatics are determined to catch them and rid the world of their existence. Enter in Lucas Darby - a unique Indigo known as a Crystal - and things go seriously wrong. Will Lucas's sister Rayne, along with her mysterious and gifted new Indigo ally Gabriel, be able to find Lucas in time?

This was a seriously cool book. The description had me interested from the beginning and once I started reading, I was immediately hooked from the first paragraph. The premise and concept behind the book was very unique and intriguing. I loved the history and the story behind the Indigo kids. It was really detailed and I think the level of description really added a lot of depth to the storyline. The characters were all interesting and had their own personalities. I really liked all the main characters - Lucas, Gabriel, Rayne, Rafe, Kendra, Benny - they all added their own touch to the story that made them special to the book.

The plot was very well written and used a lot of cultural references and slang, which made it feel realistic instead of forced - especially with the dialogue of the characters. The writing itself was awesome and the book flowed really well and was definitely fast-paced. It kept me eagerly flipping pages to see what would happen next. Also, the story keeps moving from character to character - for example, one chapter would hop between Rayne, Lucas, and Rafe - so we could see into the minds of all the various characters and their views on what was happening. It gives the reader a bit of inside access to the story that you wouldn't normally get with just one defined narrator POV. Overall, this was a really enchanting and thrilling first book in a series that will have readers begging for more. I'm already eagerly awaiting the next book to see where things will pick up and what will happen next. Highly recommended!!

Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

Indigo Awakening Dec 18 2012
By sarah brown - Published on
Format: Paperback
Just like her previous book 'On A Dark Wing' Jordan has kept me riveted to each and every page in this book
This book has been on my wishlist ever since I first heard about it and so when I was asked to review it, by the fabulous author Jordan Dane herself, well to say I was excited was an understatement!
I loved the whole concept and world-building, it was an original story to add to the paranormal genre.
Most of the characters were so likeable in this book, I say most but really the ones I don't like are the 'baddies' because let's face it, that's why they're not particularly likeable anyway.
The main thing I loved about this story was the different feelings I felt throughout while reading it and the biggest one was this big sense of dread, I had throughout the book, I just had a feeling it wasn't going to end well at all for someone and I was right, and I cried it was just so heartbreakingly sad, and I can see why it happened but it was upsetting anyway.
Rayne gets a phone call from her sister one night to say that their brother Lucas has escaped from the 'mental hospital' he's been kept at, on the run he manages to leave a message from Rayne to tell her not to look for him, but being the sister that she is she does anyway and while on her travels to find him she meets a boy Gabriel 'Gabe' whom has some kind of special powers as does Lucas unbeknown to Rayne, Lucas manages to find shelter with a bunch of kids as special as he is, they are called Indigo's, all gifted with different powers and the saviors if you will of mankind, the hospital Lucas was admitted to was a cover for a church organization called the Believers that want to rid the world of these children but not before experimenting on them first.
So the aim for these Indigo kids is to stay off the radar and away from the believers, and with Lucas and Gabe being recognised as Crystal kids (a higher form of Indigo's) they need to group together if they have any chance of escaping with their lives.
And of course what's a book in a series without a killer ending, I sort of had an inkling towards the end of the book, but I was still shocked to have it confirmed either way, and it's cruel because now it's the sitting and waiting for the next book that's going to try my patience.
I loved this book and I highly recommend it.

Indigo Awakening Jan. 31 2013
By Michelle@Book Briefs - Published on
Format: Paperback
Indigo Awakening is a book about teens with special abilities. I've heard the term "indigo child" before but I never really knew too much about it. Indigo awakening is all about these indigo children- they are kids with special powers. I read a previous book of Jordan Dane's and I liked it but didn't love it, but Indigo Awakening sounded so awesome that I had to read it. And I am glad that I did because I enjoyed it more. I really want to see where this series is going, especially after that ending!

The story follows multiple characters and it is told from many point of views. Most of the time, too many point of views all over the place confuses me and is off putting, but here it worked. I think I enjoyed it because Rayne had more sections than the other people. (even though she wasn't even an indigo child) so it would be one or two sections from other characters and then it would be back to Rayne. This helped me. It also was nice because the other point of views actually advanced the story. Rayne is out looking for her brother, and so are these super creepy bad guys, so it was like a triangle. Rayne and Gabe looking for her brother, the creeps looking for the indigo children, and of course the indigo children looking to just stay hidden.

I'm not going to get into each of the characters because there were so many, but I really liked that the author took the time to let you get to know each of them. This story could have easily just been about Lucas, but it wasn't. Everyone was included.

I thought that the writing was very strong in this book. I loved how each of the points of view was written a little different. For example, Lucas' sections were more confusing and cryptic at the start because he was confused and lost. I liked Rayne's the best, but I think that is because I made a quicker connection with her than with the others.

There is a ton of action, secrets and mystery in Indigo Awakening. It is fast paced and intense. Boy oh boy is it intense. These are real bad guys and real fight scenes and all of it kept me on the edge of my seat. I'm not 100% sure how I feel about the ending, but I did like that it wasn't a cliffhanger. I am very interested in seeing what the next book will bring us. Indigo Awakening is my favorite Jordan Dane book thus far!

3.5/5 stars

Cool Concept, Quick Plot, but Confusing Language & Distracting Romance Jan. 4 2013
By Rachael Woohoo - Published on
Format: Paperback
Rating: 2 / 5

I realized I wrote a really, really long review... again. Here's a shorter version, in list form! In basic form,

What I liked:
- The idea of Indigo children & the portrayal of their abilities at the end - lots of action!
- The plot was still quick-paced and full of action!
- Rafe's POV was great - his relationship with Kendra, his thoughts, Benny - great!

And not so much...
- Insta-love between Rayne & Gabriel
- SO many POVs to keep track of, and some felt unnecessary
- Sometimes her language was awkward or confusing...

Longer Book Review:
I'm not exactly sure why, but Indigo Awakening just wasn't for me. Theoretically, I should have fell in love with the book - there was an awesome concept, the plot was quick-moving, and there was a lot of action. Still, probably because of the romance between Rayne & Gabriel, I found it hard to finish and enjoy the book, especially at the beginning.

The most glaring issue, for me, was Rayne & Gabriel's initial relationship. It might have been just me, but am I the only one who thinks these quotes just reek of insta-love? If not, they still had me rolling my eyes...*

"Rayne still felt under the influence of her hyped adrenaline, and getting saved had made her plenty grateful, but one thought took root when she looked at him again. He looked... beautiful. Seeing him in the shadows, looking up at her, did a number on her heart - a reaction she fought against."

"Gabriel touching her face felt like the most natural thing. Rayne had a connection to him that she couldn't explain."

"Epic cuteness. Rayne smiled. She felt closer to Gabriel than she ever had before." (This was about 1/3 into the book, and they had met about 15% through, and there were other POVs introduced. My main question was if they were really that close before? Maybe I'm just being picky.)

And this one might not totally be insta-love, but I was still doing eye-rolls afterwards...

"Her eyes triggered something in him - a need. The years of him running hiding, not trusting anyone - they had come at a price that she made him feel".

* I am quoting from the eARC I received through NetGalley.

Apart from that, I found that Dane's writing style was a bit... irkish for me, I suppose. There are some awkward transitions between the text, as well as some misused words here and there. Sometimes Rayne also refers to Gabriel (or vice versa) in strange ways. For example: (and again, I'm quoting from the eARC I received on NetGalley, so this might have been corrected)
"Her bike carried good memories and she needed the positive karma." (Karma is good fate you get for doing good things, not for good memories)

"When Rayne shook her head, the guy named for an angel hit her with a slow smile, another weapon in his arsenal." (For me, the language "named for an angel" and "another weapon in his arsenal" was just awkward :/)

"The whole scene looked like a disaster flick in a cheesy movie." (So it looked like a disaster movie... in a cheesy movie?)

"With tears stinging her eyes, she winced at the kinetic energy that jolted through her body." (Considering the actual physics definition, the use of "kinetic energy was a bit strange.)
Again, these language issues might just be me, and they might have been corrected in the final draft of the book, but this was based on my experience of reading the eARC I received.

There were also a lot of POVs to keep track of, three of them belonging to the villains of the story. I didn't really feel the need to go into the minds of that many villains, and some of the transitions (again, maybe because of the formatting of the eARC) were awkward. I did enjoy Rafe's POV though - the small sneak peak of the next book was actually written mostly in his POV, and I was definitely intrigued!

Despite it all, the plot was still filled with action and was quick-paced (well, when Rayne and Gabriel weren't gazing into each other's amber & grey eyes). Rafe & Benny were also adorable characters, and I loved their clever voices and banter. The last 10 or 15 percent or so of the book was also probably my favorite part - there was a lot of action, at a non-stop pace, and the Indigos' abilities were well portrayed and intriguing, although I wish some of the backstory was delved into.

*Thank you to NetGalley & Harlequin Teen for a review copy of the novel*

It all started going down hill with the zoo. Dec 30 2013
By Crossroad Reviews - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This one I had a big problem with. I was so happy to finanaly get a finished copy and then was so disappointed. It all started going down hill with the zoo. Because, of course her Intsa-Love was there right where she was looking for her brother. And of course he saved her! The other issues arising when magic powers for the Indigo Children start popping up. It doesn't seem that there is any norm when it comes to these powers. Each kids in the story just has the powers that they need to get out of the situation that they are in. So I'm sad to say that this one has no real world building and no standard for powers.
