In a brilliant collaboration by New York Times and critically acclaimed coauthors Charlaine Harris, Christopher Golden, Kelley Armstrong, Jonathan Maberry, Kat Richardson, Seanan McGuire, Tim Lebbon, Cherie Priest, James A. Moore, and Mark Morris join forces to bring you a crime-solving novel like you’ve never read before.
Investigative reporter Nora Hesper spends her nights cloaked in shadows. As Indigo, she’s become an urban myth, a brutal vigilante who can forge darkness into weapons and travel across the city by slipping from one patch of shadow to another. Her primary focus both as Nora and as Indigo has become a murderous criminal cult called the Children of Phonos. Children are being murdered in New York, and Nora is determined to make it stop, even if that means Indigo must eliminate every member. But in the aftermath of a bloody battle, a dying cultist makes claims that cause Indigo to question her own origin and memories.
Nora’s parents were killed when she was nineteen years old. She took the life insurance money and went off to explore the world, leading to her becoming a student of meditation and strange magic in a mountaintop monastery in Nepal…a history that many would realize sounds suspiciously like the origins of several comic book characters. As Nora starts to pick apart her memory, it begins to unravel. Her parents are dead, but the rest is a series of lies. Where did she get the power inside her?

What an amazing collaboration of some of my favorite authors! How did all these imaginations come together to compile such an original urban fantasy tale.
I say urban fantasy and the retailer's buy links say anthology, mystery, suspense and thriller. I think all of those work except anthology, this is a collaboration but it is one singular story and not a collection of literary works as I assumed the term anthology implied. Now you see my excitement and surprise on how masterfully it was put together. Lets not forget the fantasy side. INDIGIO leans heavily on the occult and paranormal/magical side of things, so to me this is a really amazing urban fantasy read.
I have to admit, I wasn't really sure where this was going and it did take awhile for me to find my invested in the story. But once invested, I was surprised and elated by the many twists and turns as well as the nail biting suspense that these authors have created.
If you're a fan of any of these authors, if you love a great urban fantasy read, check out INDIGO.
I received this ARC copy of Indigo from St. Martin's Press. This is my honest and voluntary review.
