Product Description

International best-selling author SAFFINA DESFORGES (writing as STEVIE JORDAN) & the creator of the wonderfully dark and disturbing, 'Birdy' KAREN OSBORNE bring you...

INDIGO KIDS: Seven special children - one mission. Through time and space, seven uniquely talented children are called together.

She couldn't be more wrong...Someone is watching her. Someone wants her and her special gift - a gift she doesn't know she has. A strange dream. A whale. The geek. A man in grey. A fight she has no idea she's in. She is being called - they are being called.  It's time for the beginning of the end. It's time for.... Awakenings.

"Answer, my children - answer as if your heart would break.
Answer the shades, the hues, the petrol blues.
Answer the call...of Indigo."

Parts two - seven (due for release 2013-2014): Hadi, Starr, Ceci, Harmony, Ming & Xi, Shai

Book 2 - Paragon & Book 3 - Nirvana will be released in 2014.

5.0 out of 5 stars Viva La Novella! 29 Aug 2013
By Great Summer Reads For Teens - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
by Laura Masciarelli, author of Quest

Indigo Kids, Jax, is such an incredibly awesome book. It has all the elements that I love, that I feel make a great book. Jax, a fifteen-year-old girl, communicates with a whale and during her communication, something akin to purple lightning knocks her on her butt. A mysterious man in a gray suit notices this and whispers into his phone about moving Jax up on the list and that he was going to keep watching her. In getting involved online with the whale-saving community, Hadi, a student in the Middle East, breaks into her email and warns her to be careful.

After some strange dreams about the whales and having to save them, plus some more dealings with the purple flame, Hadi again warns Jax, but this time, it's to tell her that the man in the gray suit and his group are coming to kill her. She is special and this group kills kids like Jax. All of this happens within 73 pages! The action keeps coming. The story captures the reader's attention and holds it without a lull.

Jax is likeable and the purple flame that appears in her hands and around her body adds to the fascination about her. The banter between Jax and her friends is both believable and engaging.

Under the description of the book, it is labeled as a Young Adult/New Adult novel, warning that the content would not be suitable for young teens. It states that there are graphic scenes and sexual references. Maybe the authors are planning to step up the inappropriateness in later books in the series, but I found absolutely nothing graphic or sexual about this book. In fact, before I read the description, I wondered if it might have been written with younger teens in mind, due to the book length. And, when I read that the authors are considering it as a New Adult book, I thought it might be a little tame and young (after all, Jax is 15) for that genre.

Indigo Kids as a Novella: Here is a different form of writing that never existed in traditional publishing and when I'm choosing a book to read, I like having the option of a quick little read.

Things I liked about Indigo Kids: Just about everything, the story, the paranormal aspect, the idea of communicating with animals, Jax and her friends, the suspense.

Things I did not like: I did not know it was a serial novel before I started. If I had investigated it just a little, I would have found out that there are seven books planned, one for each character. But, it made me wonder if the authors can tie it all up in the end or will it degenerate into one action scene after another with no common thread-I will just have to check out the next books to find out.

Overall: Five stars! I loved it and cliche as it is, I read it in one sitting. Cannot wait for the next book in the series!
1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible 7 Dec 2014

To set things straight I hated this book. This book is all about a girl with powers. But such things like how she happens to love whales, and just happens to be able to controlling whales? Another thing that I hated was that it was so short. Why is an organization trying to hunt down helpless 15 year olds? Why is Jax (Weirdest name of all time) having strange dreams about what it sounds like, dancing with a teenage devil. So overall I know you will probably think "99 cents book, what a steal." I believe that at the end you'll feel that your money is wasted. That is why I gave it a one star.
