After Earth was destroyed by climate change and overpopulation, private corporations colonised new planets. On one such planet, Galbraith,the fertility of its citizens is tightly controlled. But at what cost?
When Scarlet Bergen leaves her childhood home to be trained at the Arcadia Institute, harnessing her psychic Solitaire talents, it feels like the beginning of her future. But on the Institute steps, her father whispers a life-changing secret about the past. Her mother, a geneticist who disappeared when Scarlet was ten, had enemies …
Scarlet vows to discover the truth about her mother – and is joined in her mission by fellow cadets with their own family secrets and special talents: tech-savvy Rumi, a tenacious truth-hunter, and Dylan, the aloof classmate who can literally read her mind.
Together, they’ll uncover a planet-wide conspiracy … and discover that there’s little the Galbraith Executives won’t do to get what they want.
I really enjoyed Indigo Owl and was pleasantly surprised by the story. I have never read anything by Charlie Archbold, so I didn’t know what to expect but ended up really enjoying it!
Indigo Owl is a very engaging story that left me not wanting to put it down. I ended up reading it in 3 sittings but if I had the time to continue to sit and read I could have easily read this in one day. It was just so unpredictable and entertaining that it dragged me in and hooked me from the very beginning.
The story was fast paced and I felt like there were very few slower moments which definitely helped with how engaging it was as I just wanted to know what happened next all the time.
Even though it was fast paced I felt like there were still plenty of world building & character development too. I really enjoyed the world and loved learning about all the technological advancements this world had developed. I also feel like we got enough back story to really bring this world to life as well.
The characters were also very well written. All of them had distinct personalities and I loved seeing some of them grow throughout the story. I also really enjoyed the friendships that were focused on as well as the family relationships that were explored.
Overall I really enjoyed reading Indigo Owl and I am definitely curious to check out more by Charlie Archbold. Indigo Owl did end nicely but it also ended kinda of open, as if there is the possibility of a sequel. Which I hope is true because I would be very interested in reading more in this world and finding out what happens next!
