Editorial Reviews

Review

"Jordan Dane is a fresh new voice in young adult fiction."
--P. C. Cast, New York Times Bestseller, House of Night Series

            


"Jordan Dane will leave you sleep deprived."
--Suspense Magazine

"Jordan Dane crafts nail-biting thrillers with fully-realized but very damaged characters, and plots that twist and turn and double-back to bite the unwary."
--Jonathan Maberry, New York Times Bestselling Author of ROT & RUIN

"Dane's YA ON A DARK WING is a great new tale about death, love and starting over. It's an exciting mix that will remind readers of Bree Despain's The Lost Saint and Rachel Vincent's Soul Screamers. Paranormal fans will love this. A compelling page turner."
--RT Magazine in a YA Featured Review

"In her first YA novel IN THE ARMS OF STONE ANGELS, adult thriller writer Dane pens a macabre tale. Thoroughly eerie, the plot includes flashbacks and nightmares involving crossing over into the spirit world, while Dane's well-developed characters provide an authentic exploration of guilt, loyalty, and belonging."
--Publishers Weekly

Acknowledgements - Excerpt Only
Real life and headlines often inspire my books and this time is no exception. Conspiracy theorists have linked the CIA, the UN, and the Pentagon to the phenomenon known as "Indigo or Crystal Children," a concept heavily queried on the Internet with thousands of websites and resources to research the topic. Query "Crystal Child" online and you will get millions upon millions of hits. Indigo kids have been featured on mainstream TV and in dozens of newspapers and movies.
 
For the purposes of fiction, I took liberties in my portrayal of this phenomenon, but Indigo kids are generally described as highly intelligent, gifted teen psychics with a bright 'indigo' aura and a mission to save the world. They have high IQs, have been known to see angels and commune with the dead. Because they are frequently misunderstood, they are diagnosed by therapists and doctors as having attention deficit or behavioral disorders and are often medicated.
 
Are Indigo children real or are they manipulated by adults to believe their sensitivities are special? Are they dysfunctional misfits or saviors who must be respected as the next evolution of mankind? You decide, but I find the notion of an evolution for mankind is very intriguing.

More About the Author

Jordan Dane's adult suspense novels were launched back to back in 2008 after the 3-book series sold in auction. Ripped from the headlines, Jordan's gritty plots weave a tapestry of vivid settings, intrigue, and dark humor. Publishers Weekly compared her intense thrillers to Lisa Jackson, Lisa Gardner, and Tami Hoag. This national best selling, critically acclaimed author's debut novel NO ONE HEARD HER SCREAM was named Publishers Weekly Best Books of 2008. Dane's first Young Adult book is IN THE ARMS OF STONE ANGELS (Apr 2011, Harlequin Teen) with ON A DARK WING released January 2012. Her next YA books with Harlequin Teen will be a series - THE HUNTED, release slated for fall 2012 through 2013. Formerly an energy sales manager, she now writes full time. Jordan and her husband share their Texas residence with two cats of highborn lineage and two very lucky rescue dogs.

'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.

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.

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.
