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'm so glad that I got a chance to read this book! I've really enjoyed Jordan Dane's books, and I really enjoyed this one! And I can't wait to read more of this series, because where this book left off was a cliffhanger, a small one, but a cliffhanger none the less!
Evolved humans with powers with people scared of them, and turning their fear into hate to hunt them, is becoming a pretty big idea. What separated this book from the others with similar ideas, was the execution, the writing, the characters, the specifics. And this book did a great job at that!
So I'm really glad that this is a series! Because what I really wanted was hints, clues, and explanations as to who these characters really are, why they are who they are by their history, I'm interested in those details, which we didn't get in this book, but hopefully the sequel!
This was a really fantastic start to the series! It was mysterious and awesome, and things slowly came into light, and then everything exploded, and when the smoke cleared, it was that ending, that was slightly cliffhanger-y, which means that I really can't wait for the sequel!
Really enjoyed this book a lot, and I just can't wait for more!
