INDIGO Synopsis:

When Brit Kavanagh was a baby her mother disappeared, but not before she gave her daughter wings—sewn into her skin with needle and thread.

Seventeen years later, Brit’s quiet, protected life is turned upside-down when her father dies, leaving her in the care of relatives she hardly knows. Almost from the moment she arrives in her new home, Brit is haunted by the terrifying apparition of a banshee and disaster strikes wherever she goes. From a near-drowning experience to a house fire at a crowded party, no one around her is safe.

Brit is desperate to unravel the mysteries behind her wings and the curse of the banshee before someone else gets hurt. The only person who can help her is Gentry O’Neill, a handsome lifeguard who knows more than he’s telling. With Gentry’s help, Brit must embark on a journey of discovery that will lead her through her mother’s troubled past, her father’s dark secrets, and the horrifying truth of her own existence.


Fiauna Lund is a grown woman with an overactive imagination, a passion for writing, four children, and the dirty house to prove it.

Reading and writing have always been passions for Fiauna. During her childhood she spent hours exploring the woods of rural western Pennsylvania where she first began creating stories about faeries, pixies, magic, and mystical creatures.

She met her husband, Aaron, while attending Utah State University, and later earned a degree in human services from Columbia College which allowed her to study the uniquely challenged and inspiring people who serve as her collective muse. She now resides in Farmington, Utah. When she's not reading, writing, or running, she spends her time caring for her four adorable children and one rambunctious dog.


 After losing her father to a car accident, Brit finds herself living in a new town with her aunt and family. It's there in the town of Tigard, that Brit starts noticing weird things happening to her. Weird things such as near death experiences. 

After almost drowning at a pool party for her aunt's homeowners meeting due to seeing a mysterious woman in the pool; Brit has no idea who this enchantingly beautiful woman is. And why she wants her dead.

Indigo is a YA paranormal novel about the fae. Or Fairy folk. As you read in the synopsis, this story involves a banshee and how Brit may or may not be in the path to becoming one. I love how Indigo isn't at all what I expected it to be.

Books about the fae are one of my favorite types of books. Of course I like seeing the different ways authors portray what fae is to them. Some of my favorite series involving fae are The Fever series by Karen M Moning and The Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa. Both completely different from Indigo but I love it all the same.

Brit is not your typical teen, well obviously, the girls got wings! At the beginning she was closed off and aloof. For good reason but it was nice seeing her make friends and have a cute boy interested in her.

Which brings me to Gentry. Sweet gentry.

Gentry is the type of guy your parents want you to date and the guy that every girl wants. He reads poetry(swoon), he is a runner, and he is super hot. Oh and he is nice but did I mention he's hot? Anyways, Gentry has some secrets as well as Brit.

Want to know the secret? Well, too bad. You will need to read the book to find out what the secrets are. You will also find out why her mother wants her so bad. You might even find out if Brit is a banshee...or not.

Indigo is for those who enjoy YA paranormal romance that involves fairies.

I want to thank Rhemelda Publishing for giving me the chance to read and review Indigo.
