Welcome to another fabulous Teaser Tuesday, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! To join the fun all you need to do is share two sentences from your current read. Make sure you don’t share spoilers.
This week, we’re sharing a little tease from Indigo Awakening by Jordan Dane. IA is the fist novel in The Hunted series set to be released on December 18 from Harlequin Teen with the second installment, Crystal Storm releasing in 2013. I’m a HUGE fan of all of Jordan’s novels. I love her characters and the plots always keep you on your toes as you flip maniacally from page to page to find out what happens next. She’s one of the few authors that I can’t help but read every novel she puts out…adult and YA. Jordan is just THAT good.
The cover is…well…it’s just absolutely dreamy. I’m totally loving the purple and blue color scheme. The title text is great too. I like the way it works into the image of the creepy animal. I’m dying to find out how it works into the story.
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.
Time for your weekly tease
“Even when he let his thoughts reach out, he had no idea who “the others” were or if they heard him. Without drugs to cloud his brain, the voices had returned, and with fresh eyes, he saw the colors, too. Beautiful prisms of fluid light radiated off ghosts without faces. Bodies drifted in front of him in colors that wavered like heat shimmers off hot asphalt.”
