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.

In Crystal Fire, the Indigos must train and hone their psychic abilities to protect themselves and fight against the Believers, a secret organization bent on destroying them. Rafe and Kendra train by mentally attacking each other, something that takes a toll on both of them.

 Crystal Fire by Jordan Dane – Excerpt 
      Once they got under a shade tree in the mountain meadow, Rafael stopped and turned to her. He had a serious expression on his face and Kendra knew he had something on his mind, beyond the psychic exercise they’d been asked to try. 
     “You can see anything I got. I have no secrets from you,” he said. 
     Kendra had to smile. She’d expected a confrontation, but his honesty and willingness to let her in had surprised her. Mostly she felt like crap for being the complete opposite. 
     “The point is that you’re supposed to block me, make it hard for me to see what you’re hiding.” She trailed a finger down his arm before she held his hand. “You can’t make it that easy.” 
     She caught the twitch of a rare, shy smile. When his face flushed, she knew she’d embarrassed him. 
     “I know, but if you don’t want to do it, I understand,” he said. “I’ll back you up. You need me to lie and tell them that we did it, I’m good with that.” 
     Rafael knew how to read her. She didn’t know if this came from his Indigo nature or it had always been a part of him. He respected her beliefs about Indigos, listened quietly to her rants on injustice and supported her radical ways without much complaint. 
     But after they both lost everything—Benny and the home that the Believers had destroyed—it had opened her eyes to how much her feelings for Rafe had changed. He’d been the strong one, the one who had his head on straight. They’d been punished because of her arrogance. Her defiance had cost them all, but Rafael never made her feel bad over what happened—not even when she wanted him to blame her for Benny. 
     What happened made her doubt everything she’d been fighting for. Rafael had been her rock all along. She wasn’t worthy of his loyalty, or anyone’s, but she had to do her part now. 
     “No. Gabe’s uncle is right,” she said. “We gotta do this.” 
     “Then you hit me first. I can take it.” 
     Rafe took a deep breath and turned his back on her. He walked out from under the sprawling tree and headed toward the edge of the meadow and a steep drop-off that overlooked the rolling hills of a valley. She followed him and watched as he sat on the ground and closed his eyes to concentrate. 
     Kendra didn’t sit. She paced through the tall grass at his back. She’d never invaded his privacy before. It felt wrong. He sat there and waited for her to attack him. 
     I gotta do this. 
     When she was ready, Kendra stopped directly behind him and found balance in the blue sky that filtered through Rafael’s dazzling Indigo blue aura. She centered on the largest cloud and felt her way to him. Connecting to him had always been easy. She sensed him everywhere and gasped at the beauty of his essence, the parts he let her see and feel. She saw God in the Indigo soul. 
    To attack Rafael, a guy who had seen too much pain in his life, felt like a sin, but she did it for the good of the others. Whatever she would do to him, she knew it would hurt her too. How could it not?
