Twins Sera and Luke Raine’s unusual abilities are growing. Sera is healing vampires now, making them human again. And, at times, Luke can actually change the future he Sees.
But Sera’s healing has dangerous consequences, and though Luke is altering the outcome of more visions, he can’t control them yet.
Now Sera is in danger as the dark creatures of the Realm seek to use her. As Luke struggles to master his gift in order to save his sister, he discovers even more about his powers.
And what he learns just may put him in greater danger than Sera has ever been.
Sera and Luke are gifted with amazing abilities, ones that have put them on the radar of several different supernatural races. Sera can heal anyone with her touch and Luke sees visions of the future. They've never known anything but danger due to a prophecy surrounding them and their abilities. And the threats against them are only going to get stronger now that their abilities have started to grow even more powerful. Now, more than ever, they will have to hide their true power if they are to have any hope at surviving. Their allies can only do so much when the threats are coming from all sides, and it's only a matter of time before tragedy strikes.
One of the best things about this series is the incredible cast of characters and the bonds between them. The strongest bond has to be the one between Sera and Luke. I mean to some extent you expect twins to be close, but these two are even closer as the two of them are literally the other's very best friend. Both are rather admirable in that they both have a fierce loyalty about them and are also determined to use their gifts to help others. This is especially impressive considering just how much suffering their gifts have caused them, yet they never once faltered in their determination to do what they feel is right. Of course that determination has landed them in some pretty sticky situations as they have a tendency to leap into the fray before really considering the consequences of their actions. This particularly holds true for Luke especially whenever Sera is in danger. Of course I can't quite blame him due to their strong bond and his fierce protectiveness of her, even if I do think he would benefit from gaining a little bit of a cooler head when facing down danger.
Onto the romances in IMAGINABLE, or at least the stirrings of them; Jonas holds a very special place in my heart. He's so honorable, yet he definitely has the major bad boy thing going on. I love that he has chosen to stand behind the twins, yet he also has not turned his back on his other allegiances. I really could see him and Sera getting together, as there does seem to be a certain spark between them. That being said, I'm really glad that the author is taking things slow with the two of them, as he is considered the Angel of Death, and had hardened his heart long ago. Someone like him doesn't just open up and turn "soft" towards anyone overnight, so it's good to see the slow build up in this circumstance. Of course there are no guarantees because as I said it was just a stirring, but I would love to see the pair of them take a go at it. As far as the other potential romance in IMAGINABLE, I have to say that I wasn't quite feeling it. Sure, there seems to be a very strong attraction between Fey and Luke, and yet they felt more awkward to me than anything. There's just such a large personality (and age!) difference that it's going to take a bit more than has been shown so far for me to get behind them completely.
I'm really enjoying the direction this series is taking. Sera and Luke both have these incredible abilities, which of course makes me think about what the long term cost would be (outside of the threats against them of course), particularly when it comes to Sera. I mean she can do this amazing feat of turning vampires back into humans, making me wonder when the other shoe was going to drop. And drop it did. The consequences are rather staggering to be honest. Then when you add in Luke's new ability, well let's just say that if they thought there was a target on their backs before, now it's increased tenfold. I personally cannot wait to get my hands on the next installment to see what's in store next. Fans of the first installment won't want to miss IMAGINABLE as is an excellent follow up that can easily be devoured in one sitting.
