This book is one of a kind. The author's vivid imagination takes you through a world of Griffins, talking plant life and one-eyed giants. The main character, Xander, is an indigo child who is bullied in our world. Through his travels to other times and places he learns how to bring about peace to warring species and how to forgive his tormentor. I enjoyed the psychic and spiritual elements which involved wizards and even the Creator of all Worlds. A talking backhoe with the spirit of a boy inside provided even more ingenuity. Kudos to Merri Halma for writing an enjoyable book for both young people and adults.

Wow! If you've read Halma's earlier books, you will LOVE this one! If not, you have a treat in store. The book is loosely based on familiar mythology, with griffins, dragons, and wizards. The protagonist is a teenager from a small town near Boise, Idaho, who has deep questions about his role in life and the special talents with which he is blessed-- or cursed. Xander can read souls. Beyond mind reading, he sees into the secret thoughts of those around him, and sometimes further away. One of those others is an evil king in another world, and it takes magical griffins, talking cats, werecats, a wish-fulfilling boy in the guise of a backhoe, and a whole cast of others to bring Xander face-to-face with the king and with his own soul searching questions. Halma has a wicked sense of humor, which shows in her characters, a strong sense of family, and a firm grasp on a reality only she could have created. First in a series, this book is a great beginning!

Indigo Traveler feels like an ambitious story that's unaware of just how big it needs to be. Halma's style is flat and dry - more often than descriptions, she presents lists of what's happening. This makes Indigo Traveler seem more like an outline than a full-fledged story. There are strange mechanical problems, too. There are too many passages one feels compelled to read aloud to someone else just to see if they are as confusing as they seem. Characters appear in scenes without having been introduced. In some places, time dilates and contracts between sentences, and it can be unclear exactly when some things are happening in relation to each other. The font changes abruptly in the last paragraph of the introduction - after a sentence that ends in a comma. The ideas here are interesting but not well presented. What Indigo Traveler needs to be as great as it should be is the careful attention of a good editor.

What an awesome adventure! Indigo Traveler was very interesting, it helped me stand up to my bullies of the past. I felt familiar with the story, because of the Nampa reference, but Cur`a was a brand new world on the edge of war. All the characters were vivid and entertaining, what a great imagination to create this world. Living with an indigo for the past 30 years of my marriage, I finally have a deeper sense of compassion and understanding. Indigo Traveler took me to another place and dimension that I had not felt before…it expanded my awareness. After reading this experience I recommend it to everyone. Thank you Merri Halma for writing this wonderful tale. Biff Boggs

It takes a beautiful creative mind to come up with a story like this. The battles fought in Indigo Traveler mirror spiritual warfare as issues with The Creator and characters who struggle to accept their gifts or curses are waged in both the fantasy and modern day settings. The collision of the two worlds is interesting. It was very fun that Nampa is reflected in the story. The issues that the history of ancestors brings into the mix is interesting. Once I finished the story I found the list of characters in the back. I would suggest looking through the list of characters in the back before beginning the story to provide some background for yourself or referencing it while reading.
