Intangible by J Meyers

Genre:  YA Paranormal Fantasy

Description (taken from J Meyers' website):
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.

You want to know the one thing I loved about this book?  I loved how it was written from different points of view.  We see the world from Sera's, Luke's, Marc's, and Jonas' point of view.  If you know me, I don't say this all that often because I'm typically a first-person, one narrator kind of girl.  But the different point of views in this book helped me enjoy it.

From the description, we don't get a whole lot of information about this book other than we want to know more.  And the book starts out with Sera and Luke living normal lives while being more than the ordinary teenagers they seem to be.  They have a gorgeous friend, Fey, who seems to watch out for them.  And along comes Marc who does anything to get to know these two.  And Jonas?  Well, he's my favorite character from the book (you'll definitely figure out why when you read the book - remember, I'm always biased when it comes to the paranormal).  Then the story begins to unfold as you go.

For some reason, I had the hardest time connecting to Sera.  She felt wishy-washy to me in the beginning.  She's all about helping people, but she'll never let any one get too close to her.  And when I'd feel like I was kind of connecting to who she was, something would happen and I'd wonder who is she.  But I absolutely loved Luke's character.  And that's probably why the different points of view worked for me.

Did I like the book?  I enjoyed it, but I felt like a few ties in the book were unexpectedly cut off at the end.  And the ending definitely leaves it open for another book.  So I believe any one who likes paranormal fantasy (notice I say fantasy and not romance - I believe the romance is slimmer in this book which I like) should read this book...

Thanks goes to J Meyers for providing me with a review copy of this book.


  1. I love different POV's, I am scheduled to review this in May. Thanks for sharing your wonderful review!

  2. I'm not a big fan of different POVs either, but I'm glad it worked for you! I'm not a fan of wishy-washy characters, so I'm not sure if I'll like Sera. But the rest of the cast sounds great. I'm glad you enjoyed this book, despite some flaws! :)
