Because of what you are, the Believers will hunt you down.

A storm is brewing on the streets of LA, one that has intensified since a tragic and deadly confrontation claimed an innocent life.

While Gabriel Stewart trains his army of teen psychics to stop Alexander Reese--the obsessed leader of the Believers--the fanatical church becomes more bent on the annihilation of all Indigo and Crystal children. They're silencing the voices of the telepathic hive, one soul at a time, with frightening experiments cruelly executed on vulnerable minds.

When the Believers torture a mysterious homeless boy, Oliver Blue, they brainwash him into betraying his own. The boy becomes a deadly pawn to take Gabriel down. As the fires of chaos burn around him, Gabe is running out of time. He'll need to confront his past--and the man who made him--before the hope of peace for the future is silenced forever.

Fun Factoid about the new character of Caila Ferrie: She is a reader/author who won a contest of  mine and got named as a character in Crystal Fire when she shared her thoughts on what psychic  power she wanted to have. Many of the character’s bizarre traits were things the real Caila shared  with me, like her Disney tunes and Cheez Whiz addictions. The real Caila is an amazing person and  she made for a fun Indigo.

Crystal Fire by Jordan Dane – Excerpt
West Hollywood
10:20 p.m.

A sane person wouldn’t think about going inside—alone—but Caila Ferrie didn’t have a  choice. She wasn’t a stranger to darkness. She’d spent much of her life sinking into it,  forced into the shelter and anonymity of shadows by her own choosing. That realization  hit her as she stared at a deserted old warehouse from a murky alley across the street,  believing she’d be better off inside than where she was. Brick walls were scrawled with  veins of graffiti and glutted by neglect. Light from the street reflected off the jagged glass of  busted windows and made the pitch-black broken parts look as if the building had eyes.

 It was the third location she’d tried tonight, her last shot at finding Oliver Blue. She shut her eyes and took a deep breath. Please let this be it, she prayed. If she came up empty, she  had nowhere else to go. Before she cut across the street, she looked over her shoulder and  listened hard. She’d been careful and thought no one followed her, but it never hurt to be  sure. Caila stuck to the shadows, even if it meant she had to take the long way around to  cross the street. She took the precaution as much for Oliver as she did for her. 

The guy was a loner. That’s why few people knew anything about him. She’d met him  only once through her friend Zack, who’d said that if anything bad happened, Oliver would be a guy she could trust. Zack never said why he had such faith in him, but he’d been adamant. 

Because she trusted her friend, Caila had listened when he told her where to look for the  guy, but the one time she’d met Oliver, he put her on edge. He didn’t say much and barely  made eye contact. He looked irritated that Zack had brought her. After her friend pulled him  aside to explain, Oliver nudged his chin and mumbled the only words he’d directed at her.  “Zack’s a good guy to watch your back. Hope you do the same for him.” Oliver left without saying  another word. At the time she never thought she’d see him again. 

If she wasn’t desperate, she wouldn’t have come. 

It took Caila time to check every door and the loading bay for a way into the abandoned  building. Everything on street level was locked tight. She almost gave up until she spotted  a fire escape that led to the upper floors and the rooftop. Climbing those steps would make  her a target for anyone watching the warehouse. If she found a way in, she wouldn’t have  much of an escape if she needed one, and metal stairs made noise. She debated her  options, but the fact was that she didn’t have any. She hadn’t risked searching for Oliver to  give up now.

Caila climbed the rusted steps and didn’t look down. She kept her hands on the filthy  railing, even in the spots riddled with gross chewing gum. With a bird’s-eye view, she took  comfort that she hadn’t been followed and felt safe enough to crouch on a step in the dark.  She reached into her jacket pocket and pulled out her last can of Cheez Whiz and squirted  it in her mouth. She had to take a hit to keep her stomach from growling. After she emptied  the can, she left it on the fire escape and got moving.

Zack had always kept her supplied with the stuff, that and spray whipped cream. Cheez  Whiz reminded her of him. She’d found Zack when she’d needed someone to look after  her, but memories of him were blasted out of her skull by an absurd habit she had almost  no control over. Whenever she got nervous, random Disney songs ear-wormed her. An  outburst from the French chef in The Little Mermaid erupted in her head like a brain itch.

Not now!

Whoever had control of the Disney MP3 in her brain took weird pleasure in torturing her with a music doodle when she least expected it. The habit had come from a distant  memory, something she should have remembered as important, but couldn’t quite recall.  It usually signaled something bad, but not always. After she found a metal door with a broken lock on the second level, she stepped into the crushing silence of the abandoned warehouse—and even the French chef quit singing. A tingle raced across her skin like the chilling touch of a cold hand. 

Caila wasn’t alone. Someone watched her. Her gift of second sight had sent her a warning, a rippling sensation that had started in her chest and raced down her arms. Being psychic, she relied on her instincts for everything. The impulse to run grew stronger, but she fought the push. Her promise to Zack made her stay.

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.
