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.
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
Sera and Luke have a special bond that goes well beyond just being twins. They both have a secret ability, isolating them from the rest of the world. Sera can heal and influence others, while Luke can see the future. In the past, they have always tried to help others while staying under the radar, but this time, it's Sera that needs help. Luke had a vision of her death, and he doesn't know how to stop it as he's never been able to change the outcome of any of his past visions no matter how hard he tries. Changing fate has never been more important as much more is on the line then they ever realized and their lives are about to be changed. Irrevocably.
I felt the rotating perspectives were handled really well in Intangible, and they definitely added to the story. Even though the perspectives changed rather frequently, I never had a hard time figuring out whose head I was in as each transition was very clear. Each character had their own very unique voice and really added something to the story. A lot of times in books with this type of perspective rotation, I find myself thinking that at least one or more of them could be eliminated to help declutter things a little. However, in Intangible, I don't think a single one was unnecessary as they each brought a unique perspective to the story, and things wouldn't have been near as interesting without them. That being said, I have to say that I loved Luke and Sera's perspectives the most. The bond between them is so very incredibly strong, and I loved seeing into their heads. Also, their teasing nature really added to the story, helping to lighten up the otherwise grim circumstances.
The world J. Meyers has
created is incredibly rich and rather unique. There is a very complex
set of circumstances that slowly builds as the story progresses, giving
the reader plenty of time to adjust to the new additions. In fact there
is a plethora of supernatural races that definitely make for a very
interesting combination. I really enjoyed seeing all the friction between, all the different "sides", but above all I loved how there was no clear cut good and evil in each race. Some characters just refused to follow the mold and I loved them for it. In all honesty I typically shy away from self-published novels in a reviewing aspect for a variety of reasons, the most being a lack of time. Also editing issues drive me batty and unfortunately many self-published novels lack that polished feel. However, after the author approached me very professionally, I decided to put my prejudices aside and give it a shot. As I was reading, it was blatantly obvious from the very start of Intangible, that it would stand a huge step above the rest. Not only is J. Meyers very talented in her storytelling, but you can really tell that she takes pride in her work to ensure she is putting out the best product possible. Everything from the gorgeous cover, to the great pacing of the story, and even the very impressive and professional way J. Meyers approaches her marketing strategy proves she is here to stay. I will definitely be eagerly awaiting the next installment in this series, and I highly recommend Intangible to anyone who enjoys Paranormal YA novels. (Received a copy from the Author) Rating:
