Indigo Awakening by Jordan Dane
Series: The Hunted #1
Release Date: 12/18/2012
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.

I really wanted to like this one -__- But nope.. this one is definitely not for me.
This book really failed to keep my interest. I had to push myself to finish it. The writing is really great so I think it's one of those it's-not-you-it's-me situation.
The writing flows really nicely, but I find the switching perspectives a bit confusing. Sometimes I forget I've switched to someone else's perspective and things I read just don't make sense. Indigo Awakening is told in many different perspectives but mainly in Raine's point of view.
The concept of "Indigo" kids and "Crystal" children are really intriguing. If you google search Crystal children, they're actually several hits on them. They're the evolution of human and they have extraordinary abilities like healing and telepathy. The concept was especially popular in the 1990s. The plot is well-built with the Church hunting these Indigo and Crystal teens. Though why exactly the Church want them, I have no idea. Maybe to just eliminate them? Or study them?
You should definitely read this if you love to read about any supernatural abilities. With a well-built plot and intriguing concept, Indigo Awakening is sure to make you flip page after page.
