(The Hunted #1)

Summary from Goodreads:  
Because of what you are, the Believers will hunt you down.  Voices told Lucas Darby to run. Voices no one else can hear. He’s warned his sister not to look for him, but Rayne refuses to let her troubled brother vanish on the streets of LA. In her desperate search, she meets Gabriel Stewart, a runaway with mysterious powers and far too many secrets. Rayne can’t explain her crazy need to trust the strange yet compelling boy—to touch him—to protect him even though he scares her.  A fanatical church secretly hunts psychic kids—gifted “Indigo” teens feared to be the next evolution of mankind—for reasons only “the Believers” know. Now Rayne’s only hope is Gabe, who is haunted by an awakening power—a force darker than either of them imagine—that could doom them all. 

Rayne Darby meets a mysterious runaway named Gabriel Stewart when she searches for her missing brother Lucas. As Gabriel sinks deeper into awakening psychic powers he doesn’t understand, he is forced to look for answers in a place he hadn’t expected to see again – the Stewart Estate – where he lived as a child. 
Excerpt – The Stewart Estate in the Bristol Mountains 
Dead leaves swirled at Gabriel's feet and whipped into the air, casting shadows as they moved under the dim light of a single lantern fixed to the stone wall outside the door. The littered front entrance, with its cobwebs and mounds of dust, told him things had changed from what he remembered of the grandeur of the estate. He felt the weight of isolation and an unshakable gloom. 
Now as he stood at a door he never thought he'd see again, he worked up his courage. Seeing this place through a kid's eyes, it had once looked huge and magical. Every room held a mystery. Every old storage trunk told a story. Being here again had tapped into a part of his childhood that would always be special. It surprised him that despite the years—and all that had happened—the place still felt the same. It hadn't changed much. 
He had been the one to change. He wasn't a kid who believed in magic anymore. 
When a spark of guilt kept him from knocking, he glanced over his shoulder at Rayne. She only shrugged and didn't push. She even forced a strained smile. She seemed to sense how hard it had been for him to come here. If his gut didn't feel like a pretzel, he would've kissed her. 
As he reached for the buzzer, the door moved on its own. It opened with a loud rusty creak. 
"Holy shitake!" Rayne cried out, and jumped. She grabbed him by the arm and wouldn't let go. 
The heavy wooden door with its ancient metal hinges inched open and sucked dried leaves into the gaping mouth of the mansion. Gabe stayed put. He stared into the darkness and waited to see who had opened the door.
