Intangible by J. Meyers


 Twins Sera and Luke Raine have a well-kept secret—she heals with a touch of her hand, he sees the future. All their lives they’ve helped those in need on the sly. They’ve always thought of their abilities as being a gift.

Then Luke has a vision that Sera is killed. That gift they’ve always cherished begins to feel an awful lot like a curse. Because the thing about Luke’s ability? He’s always right. And he can’t do anything about it.

If I had to describe this book in one word, that would be it: unique. Or maybe amazing. The plot, the characters, nearly everything was just so original, and even when I thought it was taking a turn for the worse, I was totally and completely surprised.

I really liked the plot of this book. Although it was admittedly a little slow for the first half of the book, all of the little things in the beginning added up to the plot with an amazing ending. The only thing I did not like about the first half was that there was not much of the plot centered around the fact that Luke saw Sera die, though the second half was big on this aspect.

The characters were also pretty great. It was fun to see inside everyone's head, with the many changing views. Somehow, the author managed to avoid confusion with all the POV's! The only character I didn't love was Jonas, though I admittedly grew to like him a bit over the course of the book.

The weakest aspect f this book had to be the romance. At first, it was really good, with Sera and Marc a couple, and hints of Fey and Luke. But I didn't like how Sera and Luke's romance ended in the book, or who Sera "fell-back" on. And the Fay and Luke went no where in the plot, so at times I was wondering if I was just wishing for there to be some romance between the two.

The best part of the book, at least for me, was the mythological and paranormal aspects of the book. At first, when I learned that vampires were a key part of the plot, I was a bit wary. Luckily, Meyers managed to make them real, plus throw in some other mystical beings, topping the whole thing of with an other-worldly feel, even as those mystical beings attended high school.

Besides the whole romance dud, I really liked the ending. I think it broadened the horizon for any future books, while also having a finishing quality. It left me imagining what would happen next, and definitely will keep me anticipating a sequel.

All in all, this was an amazing book I would definitely suggest reading. Paranormal creatures, romance, and adventure - what more could you ask for?
