I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
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.My thoughts:
Before starting to read Intangible, I read the bonus short story, Intuition which gives you a quick insight into the life of Sera and Luke Raine, twins who have some very special gifts. I was really impressed by Intuition and the second I finished it, I immediately moved onto reading Intangible as I just had to know more about these interesting characters! If you'd like to test the series yourself, Intuition is actually free on Kindle and Nook and it's definitely worth a look!
When I first started reading this book, I quite liked it. It was good, different and kind of sweet. I was enjoying learning about the characters and seeing more of the ''other'' world as the book went on. But then, at around 30% into the book, I became completely captivated and could not put it down for one second! It was like everything clicked into place, the book found its feet and the characters found their voices. I really, really loved it from then on and could feel it becoming a favourite with each page I read.
Intangible is the story of twins; Sera who can heal people with a touch of her hand and Luke who can see in the future but so far has been powerless to change it. While the gifts may not be a new concept, I loved how Meyers developed these characters and enjoyed seeing how their gifts affected their everyday life and the people they were becoming. It was sweet to see the close relationship Sera and Luke have with each other. They would do anything for each other and they're both strong and independent characters at the same time.
It's told in the third person but changes perspective quite a lot. Often this can bother me in a novel but I loved it in this! It was definitely necessary and really helps you get a look at the story from lots of angles. There's the main plot but there are also lots of sub plots with different characters and the changing perspective helps us follow all of these. I especially loved when the story followed Jonas and Marc! They were both highly interesting characters and I liked getting a peak into their lives.
Intangible is quite an emotional book, too. I was either laughing at the sarcastic and witty conversations between the main characters or terrified for them because of Luke's visions. I found it really easy to like all the character and couldn't wait to see how everything was going to turn out. I would absolute recommend this book to everybody. It's different and funny and written incredibly well. I can't wait for more!
