Rayne Darby has learned the life of a loner out of necessity. She’s a spunky, emancipated minor at seventeen. Her parents died in a plane crash and left her older sister Mia to deal with the family money, trust funds, and the aftermath of caring for their mentally troubled brother, Lucas. When the sisters argued over Lucas’s care, after Mia committed him to a mental facility, Rayne filed for her independence and moved out to live on her own. She and Lucas are very close. She would do anything for her younger brother. Rayne is a quietly strong character who has learned to stand on her own, even though she makes mistakes. She rides a vintage Harley motorcycle, cares for her ‘roommate,’ her pet Iguana Floyd Zilla, and she likes gummy bears in her cereal.
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.
About the Author:
Avon/HarperCollins launched Jordan Dane’s debut suspense novels in a back to back publishing event in Spring 2008 after buying the 3-book series in auction. Pursuing publication since 2003, Jordan had received awards in 33 national writing competitions and was an energy sales manager in the oil and gas industry prior to selling. Now she is following her passion and writes full time. Ripped from the headlines, Jordan’s gritty plots weave a tapestry of vivid settings, intrigue, and dark humor. She loves challenging a reader’s moral barometer with the borderline ethics of her characters and their flawed personalities—dark, angst-ridden antiheroes pitted against unforgettable villains. Publishers Weekly compared her intense pacing to Lisa Jackson, Lisa Gardner, and Tami Hoag—”romantic suspense that crosses over into plain thriller country with tight plotting and exceptional male characters, both bad guys and good.” Jordan and her husband share their residence with two cats of highborn lineage and the spirit of an intelligent canine who is impossible to forget.
