Welcome to my stop on the Indigo Awakening blog tour hosted by YA Bound!
Indigo Awakening – Character Bios & Actor Images
There is a fuller cast of characters in Indigo Awakening (Book #1 in the Hunted series), but here are the bios of the main ones in the order in which they appear in the book. It was especially fun to have more boys to write and it became a challenge to give each one a unique voice that I could hear in my head. I have fallen in love with each of them and worry that they won’t come out of this unscathed in some way. I’m writing book #2 now – Crystal Fire – and I am definitely worried.
Lucas Darby is fifteen, tall and lanky, with long hair and beautiful gray eyes that match his sister Rayne’s. He’s an evolving Crystal child who has been stunted by his time locked up in a mental hospital and emotionally innocent. Drugs were used to control him and have taken a toll. At his young age, he’s manifested his Crystal child abilities early and becomes a huge target for the Believers to hunt him down. They want to “study” him, but that’s never a good thing. Lucas’s potential is similar to the gifts that Gabriel Stewart has, but Lucas also shows the ability to read other people’s memories. This psychic gift is called Retro-cognition. Crystal children tend to be more benevolent and peace loving by nature and Lucas is no exception. He’s at odds with Kendra’s warrior nature to protect their kind. Once he sees how far the Believers will go to destroy innocent lives, Lucas will be forced to take a stand he’s not prepared for.

Indigo Awakening (The Hunted #1)
by Jordan Dane
Release Date: 12/18/12
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.
