There are no secrets.
Sixteen-year-old Tyler believed that his extra-sensory powers were a secret, but when his twin brother, Toby, is kidnapped by a covert government agency, he realizes that he has no secrets, and he has nowhere to hide.
He’s not alone.
Now, in order to save himself and rescue his brother, Tyler must call upon the help of four strangers. Unknown to each other, Eddie, Liliana, Grace, and Sarah share a common bond. They are Indigo Children. With extra-sensory powers of their own, they must unite with Tyler in order to maintain their freedom.
They’re on the run. They’re on a mission. Romance is a distraction that Tyler can’t afford. But sometimes, the heart has a mind of its own.
Time is running out.
Will they find Toby before the agency finds them first? Find out in Indigo Incite, Book One of the Indigo Trilogy.

My Rating: 3 stars
I liked the idea that this was based around. Sure, it wasn't entirely original--Mind Games by Mind Games, Indigo Incite manages to bring something new to the table. I won't give away what star children are, but I will say that the idea was very unique, and a bit out there, but really cool at the same time. This is where Jacinda Buchmann really excelled; she put a new spin on everything.
Kiersten White had a similar plot--but at the same time, there were things I'd never encountered before in this book. Like the idea of star children; that part of the book is probably the biggest example I could use to show that despite the similarities to
(And even if Indigo Incite had been something I had read a thousand times, I admit I would still probably have liked it; mind reading is one of my guilty pleasures when it comes to books)
What I didn't like about the story mostly has to do with the characters. I didn't feel that they were developed enough. They were pretty static, and I never connected with them. One of the reasons for this dilemma was because there were a lot of main characters; Tyler and Toby were the real main characters, but often there would be chapters in the other prominent character's POV. I wish that the author would just have stuck with Tyler and Toby's POV so I could have gotten to know them better.
The only other problem I had with this book was that the romance happened fairly quickly. I hesitate to call it insta-love, because it wasn't exactly that quick, but I would have liked to see them slowly fall in love, not just have it happen...randomly, like it seemed to in the book.
All in all, a pretty good book! Take my dislikes with a grain of salt, as it seems like I am always a bit harsher with paranormals. I would recommend it to people of all ages.
