 Tyler and his twin brother have gifts, when Toby is kidnapped it's up to Tyler to find others like them and rescue him.

This is they journey of several gifted people not just Tyler and Toby we see through their eyes as they discover each other and try to figure out what to do. There is a romantic element to the story but it's just an extra thing to this story as a whole you see a group of people discovering they are not alone and how they can work together to help each other. I loved seeing the mystery of them trying to figure out what's going on and learning to use their abilities together.

Tyler is such a strong lead and I loved seeing his loyality to his brother and willingess to do anything to save him. And watching everyone interact with each other makes you feel like you right there in the story. Had fun getting into this world and can't wait to see more of it!
Indigo Incite Excerpt #1
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.”
“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.
