Very lovely YA novel that keeps you turning the page to see what happens next! There were sweet moments, events that surprised and even shocked me and an ending that left me wanting more. Great job Jacinda! Can't wait to see where else you might take us! ...more
It took me a chapter or two to get into Indigo Incite.. After a few pages, I was getting a little leary of the thought of reading an entire book that I wasn't "into". I worried needlessly. After a chapter or so, I was pulled right into the story and really enjoyed it!

One of the things I loved about this book was that it is this fantasy novel about Indigo Children with extra powers, yet it's set in our modern present day world. They are hiding in plain sight! I love books that are made so realis

I didn't have any expectations diving into this novel but it was nothing less than a wonderful experience. The concept, indigo teenagers trying to stick together to save themselves from imprisonment while at the same time attempting a rescue mission, is interesting and action-packed. "Indigo Children" is a term used for people who are able to use a part of their brain only available to those with a slightly difference in DNA, which gives them access to special abilities. These abilities vary fro ...more

I love this book. I can't wait to read the rest of the series. Great for young adult and adult alike. Not only is the story well written, the characters are well developed, and the pace perfect for the story, I really like the fact that this trilogy does not leave you hanging on all accounts like so many of the new series on the market. ...more

I love this genre, and the book was simply great. Buchmann did a wonderful job describing the characters and their backgrounds. Realistic relationships and characters while having a suspenseful plot full of supernatural abilities and interesting surprises. Those interested in Indigo phenomenon and like fantasy/sci-fi novel will love this book. Can't wait for the next book! ...more

Indigo Incite is the first book in a new paranormal series about indigo children with abilities. Indigo children are young adults or kids with telepathic skills. The abilities differ for each person. Such abilities are reading minds, opening locks, reading auras, influencing emotions and healing.

The story starts of from Tyler's perspective. His foster mom sent him to military school as he was accused of stealing. Despite being separated from his twin brother, they continued to talk to each other

Tyler and his twin brother have gifts, when Toby is kidnapped it's up to Tyler to find others like them and rescue him.

This is they journey of several gifted people not just Tyler and Toby we see through their eyes as they discover each other and try to figure out what to do. There is a romantic element to the story but it's just an extra thing to this story as a whole you see a group of people discovering they are not alone and how they can work together to help each other.

Behold - blurbs with fucking titles for seperate parts!
There is one in particular I wish to erase from existence: "Time is running out". I guess a little bonus point for not phrasing it as "they're in a race against time". This made me ask: do time constraints actually make a book more exciting? I think not.

I received a free copy of this book from the author via Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.

I found the overall tone of this book to be pleasant and refreshing to read. I was impressed that the author didn't feel the need to add a lot of violence and profanity to make the book feel more dramatic. This is a book that I would feel very comfortable handing over to an eleven year old because not only would it be entertaini

This is the first in Indigo Trilogy, and is about indigo children, I will admit that I really didn’t know much about them, and curiosity definitely took over when it came to reading this. Indigo Incite follow twin boys, who of course have a special ability to hear each others thought and communicate, but also can hear the thoughts of those around them. Toby has been kidnapped by people who want to use the indigo’s for basically their own purposes, and this in not going to happen if Tyler and Tob ...more

Well, in a few words, Indigo Incite was quite the snooze fest. It has an interesting premise, yes, but quite DULL. There's nothing much going on. Nothing!

It started out interesting, of course, with all those seriously cool powers but over the course of the book, there really was nothing going on. I was really just hoping it would slowly build up and end with a good pow.

It honestly didn't. It was like Nikita in walking through very deep snow motion, and I actually like Nikita. It's certainly n

My Stars Review:

An interesting and funny book about Indigo children, or rather as characters and a story full of fantasy, romance and the occasional mystery to discover and adventures with a touch of science fiction. The story focuses on Tyler and Toby, these two brothers have a wonderful relationship, and somewhat funny with extrasensory abilities they have (I would like to communicate me thus with one of my brothers, it would be very funny) but when Toby is kidnapped by an covert government

Growing up with special abilities is tricky business. It can be an amazing discovery to know you're not alone, but not when you're separated from the only family you've ever known. Especially not when your brother's kidnapped by an unknown agency who's trying to collect teens and young adults with unexplainable abilities.


This is a multiple person point-of-view novel that follows the story line. Each voice is clear, adds to the suspense, and moves it forward. Personally, I love t

This is the second book that I have read about the Indigo Phenomenon/Indigo children and I thought Jacinda Buchmann did a good job with the story. I found it interesting and engaging. It was very dialogue heavy and that allowed you to get to know the characters easily. I felt like I saw each of the characters different personalities through their dialogue.

The story initially centers around twins Toby and Tyler, but they are soon joined by others with special powers. I enjoy superpower books and

I recently received a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. I am not usually into the Sci-Fi/Fantasy novels. I tend to find them unappealing, but this book really impressed me.

I enjoyed the premise of Indigo Incite: teens and young adults with special powers join forces to save a boy who was kidnapped. Sixteen year old Toby was taken because a secret branch of the government wants to study his telepathic abilities. His twin brother, Tyler, is determined to rescue Toby. Through a series of telepathic exchanges between the twins and his own psychic visions, Tyler sets out to find his brother.

It is interesting watching this quest unfold; a vision or clue leads Tyler to a

Twins Tyler and Toby face separation when Tyler gets into trouble and their foster mother doesn't want him around any longer. Two years later, Toby vanishes, supposedly in a fabulous private school with prepaid tuition. Tyler's twin contacts him telepathically, and he sets out on a journey of discovery that will change both of their lives forever – if they survive.

I was honestly not quite sure about this book when I first started reading it whether I was going to like it or not. It was a little slow in the beginning and took a couple chapters to really pick up. I am glad that I stuck with it though because I turned out to love it and now am looking forward to reading the next book in the series. I love fantasy novels and so this was ultimately a great fit for the genre that I love reading. Don't get me wrong, I love the real life drama and love stories an ...more

Indigo Incite by Jacinda Buchmann is about a group of teenagers with special abilities called Indigo Children. Reminiscent of the TV show Heroes and X-Men, Indigo Incite has something for everyone!

Told in multiple points-of-view, we get to know each character individually. Each of them have a different power and distinct personality. My favorite character has to be Liliana because I felt like I rela
