There are no secrets

He’s not alone
Now, to save himself and rescue his brother, Tyler must call upon the help of four strangers. Unknown to each other, Eddie, Liliana, Grace, and Sarah share a common bond. They are Indigo Children. With extra-sensory powers of their own, they must unite with Tyler in order to maintain their freedom.
Unexpected romance

Excerpt!
Tyler was curious about something Jesse had said. “Tracker? Is that what you are? Do you go out and track people down?"
“I did for a little while, but now, for the most part, I stay here and work with the people they bring in.”
“Like me.”
“Yeah, like you.”
“So, there are others, here, like me? How many?”
“Right now…there are ten.”
“Were they all kidnapped, too?”
“No, not all of them, some were recruited, but yes, a few were…brought here, unwillingly.”
“Kidnapped.”
“If that’s how you want to look at it, yes. But, eventually they all come around when they realize how their gifts can be used to help others. So many of them have never even understood why they have special abilities. They’ve always felt alone, and that’s where I come in. I help them recognize their true potential and help them to see that they aren’t alone, that there are others like them. We become like a family. It’s our hope that you’ll come to feel that way, too. Besides your brother, you have no family. We can offer you a home.”
A home. A family. It was a tantalizing idea, but he still couldn’t get over the fact that he had been kidnapped and drugged for the past two weeks. That wasn’t the way family treated each other. Jesse made the whole thing sound like a fairy tale. According to him, he had been whisked away from a life of poverty and had lived happily ever after. Was it really that simple? Toby had his doubts.
“I sense that you still have your doubts,” Jesse read his mind.
Toby was taken aback. Other than his brother, he wasn’t used to having anyone else inside of his head.
“Well, you’d better get used to it,” Jesse said. “There’s no such thing as a personal thought, anymore.” And just remember, they hear every word that you say, too, Jesse’s thoughts invaded his mind while his eyes glanced nonchalantly to the camera, anchored high on the wall, in a far corner.
Toby retorted with a silent reply, So basically, the moral of the story is, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. Is that it?
You’re a smart one, no doubt about that, Jesse thought. He stepped toward Toby, patted him on the shoulder, and then said out loud, “I’ll give you time to think about what I’ve said. I’ll come back later this evening.” He took his bottle of water from the desk, swiped his ID badge, and stepped out.  The door automatically slid shut upon his departure, and then he was alone in the windowless room.

My Thoughts : 

Tyler and Toby are identical twins. They do everything together even communicate telepathically. When Tyler is in the wrong place at the wrong time and is accused of robbing, he is sent to military school. While there his brother Toby is kidnapped. Toby reaches out to Tyler and tells him he doesn't know where he is being held but he does know that its a branch of the CIA that has him. He tells him that they "recruit" people with special abilities and are looking for more. Toby gives Tyler the names of the people who are on the list and tells him that he needs to find them and keep them safe and then rescue him. Will he reach them in time and can he rescue Toby?

I went into this not having read any reviews and was pleasantly surprised. It was unique and action packed. I loved Toby and Tyler. They live in foster cars with a family that is more interested with the money then with them. They look out for each other and are best friends. When Toby is kidnapped, Tyler does all he can to find him. 

I really liked all the characters. Each character brought something special to the book. I loved the fact they were all so different but all managed to be friends. The comradeship was the best part of it. There was a little romance brewing but it didn't take center stage.  I also loved how the book was told from all the characters POVs. We get a more in debt feeling for them. 

While it took a while to get into, the whole book was still full of suspense, mystery and twists. The subject matter was unique to me and I loved it. The Indigo Children and how they came to be was fascinating. They are kind of like modern X-Men. I cant wait to read more in this series.
