Review-Intangible



Title: Intangible
Author: J. Meyers

Summary:
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.

Review:
So, I have been seeing this book all over the blogosphere lately, and was lucky enough to be offered a free copy for review from the author.
This story is so much!! Its about twins, Luke and Sera, who are the prophesied gifted twins that will either save The Realm or destroy it. Only, they don’t know anything about it.
You see, Luke can see the future, while Sera can heal people, but they just keep it to themselves. And then, all of a sudden, after 17 years of being hidden by the best friend/guardian Fey (yeah, ironic name since she is an Elf) all hell breaks loose and they are found and hunted down.
See, there is this Big Bad “Mother of the Damned” vampire, Lillith (so- officially I have to change the chicks name in my book, because every bad guy chick is Lillith now) and she is afraid of the Twins and sets out to capture and destroy them!!
That’s basically the story.
Now for the details.
1.       The characters ROCK! The relationship between Sera and Luke felt truly real!! I loved BOTH of their characters! I loved Jonas… and kinda am hoping he and Sera have a thing. Which… sure that would be kinda Twilightish and kinda creepy, but I HEART Jonas!!!

As for Marc- I never liked him, not from the beginning and I never ended up liking him even to the end. He was selfish and dumb and not a good guy. Like, I get it… he has killer migraines and is being stalked by some big bad evil Shadow creatures… But I like the heros, and he isn’t one. That being said, I did feel sorry for him.
2.       The plot and pacing were great! From the first scene, where I got a glimpse of Luke seeing in a vision his own sisters death, to the very last scene, I was so emotionally invested in this book, needing to know what happened next!
3.       There is everything in this book. There are vampires (like my FAV- Jonas), elves (like their best friend, Fey…) Gifteds (like Luke, Sera, Marc and more) and references made about faeries and goblins.
4.       I loved the humor that was added in. The way Luke And Sera often banter back and forth, sometimes just with eachother and sometimes the two of them against someone else, like their mother, was GREAT!!! It was so funny!
5.       I loved the multiple POVs!!! Im a HUGE fan of this!!
Overall, This was a great, fast, exciting read. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys YA paranormal/fantasy!
Rating: 4 stars.

  1. Wow, the book's premise sounds really interesting. I've always wondered what it'd be like to have a main character (or characters) with the "healing touch", and it sounds like this book gives a pretty sound argument for giving it a shot someday.

    And I'm glad you enjoyed the characters...well, Marc aside. Speaking as a younger brother, it's good to hear that there are plenty of laughs to be had between the siblings. (A good tenth of conversations with my brother start with one of us shouting "FOR FOOTBAAAAAAAAAAAAAL!" It's quite the in-joke.)

    Anyway, another good review -- but I suppose that's the standard around these parts, eh?

  3. I've been looking around and have to say I really like your reviews. You come from the perspective of a reader and your language is very light and relatable. They read like if I were talking with my friends and I just love that feeling. Keep up the good work! The other thing I envy you so much is how well organized is your blog, with very clear tags that make it easy to navigate through it. Mine is such a mess and I never know how to best organize my entries by tags... agh!

    1. Oh, Thank you so much! This is probably the nicest comment EVER!!
      I really try to be a "reader" only in my reviews, though too often i through in my tidbits of what an author might think.

      And thanks so much! I am terrified of changing my blog too much! And though the template is regulare and dull, and not anything to do with me or books, it still works! :)

      Thanks!!
