I've always been a sucker for brother/sister connections and Luke and Sera Raine have a very special one indeed.
Luke is a seer. He has visions, dreams and feelings for things to come and he's never been wrong. Ever.
His twin, Seraphina has the ability to heal people and can also give a silent push of persuasion when needed.
But when Luke has a horrific vision of Sera dying, he has to do what ever it takes to prevent it.
But something is coming. Something bigger then the both of them and when all manner of creatures that shouldn't exist, do exist, and become apart of the twins fate, a long ago prophecy will be revealed.
It is time for the all secrets to end.

Wow, what a story! I would have to say Intangible is a very character driven book. Which I absolutely loved. I'm amazed how connected I felt towards every single one of these characters right from the start.
J.Meyers cunningly sets up the story so we are introduced to a number of characters through multiple point of views right from the first few chapters. I tend to get confused if I'm in to many heads at once, but it was the opposite for this book. I loved being able to sink into Luke and Sera's thoughts as well as the other characters to get a better feel for their intentions and what role they play in the story and the twins lives. This was very smooth and very well done.
I didn't realize till after I read this book that J. Meyer wrote Intuition a bonus short story to this book. I actually had that book sitting in my Kobo the whole time so I read it after this one. While you don't necessarily have to read the short story to understand this book, I was glad to have read it since it gave me a little more insight to the twins as well as added a fuller experience.

I don't think there was one character I didn't like. Luke and Sera were my favorite though. They have such a fun easy going friendship and sibling devotion that you can't help fall in love with. I could feel Luke's desperation for his sisters safety. They've always had each others back. The only ones who understand what the other is going through. So to lose her would be like losing himself.
Sera is such a sweet and kind soul. She has this over passionate need to use her gift and help anyone who's in pain. I love what a force she is in Luke's life as well as anyone she touches.
I also loved all the secondary characters. Fey, Jonas and Marc. Surprising I thought I'd end up hating Jonas, but it turns out that I'm more mad at Marc. You'll have to read the book to see why;)

The story line was pretty fascinating. We see most of the action near the end but the suspense and mystery is laced throughout the entire story which gives the reader just the right amount of anticipated edge.
There is some romance in this book. Not a whole lot, but enough for me to want more with them and for them.

All in all, I really just loved this one. It has just about everything I look for in a great escape. Great writing, fascinating characters and a plot that had me glue to the pages. I may have seen these elements in other stories, but I love the spin J. Meyers took with this world. She made it feel refreshing and fun. I'm not sure if we're getting another book since it ended on a good note, but I would love to see where Meyers would take this next!

A great read!

Special thanks to J. Meyers for sharing your story!

*A 4.5 Review*

Once upon a time there lived a girl, in a tiny town, with nothing to do. So to pass the time she read. She read, and she read, and she read…so much, in fact, that one day she threw down her book and declared that she had “finally read it all!”

“That can’t possibly be true,” her closest friend said. “There are so many books, and so little time, there is no way you have read it all.”

“Oh, but I have!” the girl proclaimed, “and I’ll prove it!”

“How?” asked her friend. “How will you manage such an un-accomplishable feat… proving that you have read it all?”

“Easy,” said the girl, twisting in her chair to face her friend. “Hand me my Kindle…I promise, that within the first 15 pages of whichever book you choose, I can tell you exactly what will happen.”

“Deal” said her friend, a smirk forming where a smile should have been. She took the girl’s Kindle and flipped vigorously through the titles, and then she saw it, the down turned face of a beautiful girl bathed in purple light. This was the book that would change the girl’s mind. She just knew it. So she handed the girl back her Kindle and left the room. Five hours later she returned to find her friend clutching the Kindle to her chest. Her breathing quickened and her eyes wide.

“You are right.” said the girl…”I have NOT read it all, for this book I hold in my hands is new, it is exciting, and it makes want for more.” She then handed the Kindle to her friend and insisted that she read along.

“Welcome to the magical world of Intangible” the girl said, “It’s unlike anything you have ever read.”

“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.”

Well, now that I have lulled you to sleep, with tales of pathetic ‘ol me, how about we talk about the book?

I used to expect the unexpected, I thrived on it actually, (like some girls thrive on chocolate) but about a year ago…the unexpected became much harder to achieve, especially in a genre like “paranormal.” I know I have said this roughly 2 million times, so 1 more time shouldn’t hurt, but this is a very tough genre to make your mark in these days. Unless you have an original plot and very strong characters you can pretty much count yourself out. It’s a been there done that world. So when I run across a book like “Intangible” by J. Meyers my toes get a little tingly and I feel this overwhelming need to share my feelings with the world. Why? Because books like these are the exception, not the rule.

Obviously…by this point you know that I enjoyed the book. But what you don’t know, is why.

Now, I could go on for days about it’s exciting plot or action packed paranormal filled paradoxes but I won’t. Because though all of those things are good, (or great, if I’m being honest) and they ultimately kept my fingers on hyper-drive, they were not what sucked me in, instead it was the characters that had me up until midnight reading.

For a debut author Meyers is amazingly talented at character development. “Intangible” which in my head will forever be referred to as “Entangled” boasted approximately 700 types of paranormals (ok, I’m exaggerating, it’s more like 7) and (much to my surprise and delight) they each had their own voice, from the cranky to the overly cautious, and even though their dialogues were chopped up into many different perspectives, (think Christmas dinner with your 12 ADD 9 year old cousins) their depth was never lost. As a matter of fact… their actions, (in the more “epic” of moments) only added fuel to their perfectly molded personalities, making this book a paranormal force to be reckoned with.

So what does this mean for you? Well, in short it means to cough up the $4.99 for the book. But if you are in need of something more specific I’ll go on record as saying this is one rock star start to a very promising series!

Happy Reading my fellow Kindle-ites and remember: lonely-ville is a very tough place to reside, everyone needs someone…so pay very close attention to how you treat those around you.

“Four Stars: A creative paranormal YA fantasy book, loaded with magical beings and features gifted twins. 

Luke cringes as the terrifying vision flees his mind.  As a seer, he is used to these sudden impending images of future events.  This time, fear strikes into the depths of his soul.  He  just witnessed his twin sister Sera's death.  Frightened he seeks out the comfort of his sister's company, only to find at one o'clock in the morning, her bed is empty.  Meanwhile, Sera ducks into a hospital room to lay her healing hands on a friend's extremely ill mother.  Luke is the Seer and Sera the Healer.  Sera, is always willing to help those who are hurt and suffering.  With her warming touch, she can heal.  Yet, neither Sera or Luke can control their gifts.  She can't direct her healing powers, and he can't alter the future.  Change is on the wind, though.  Sera on her way home from the hospital, accompanied by her beautiful best friend, Fey, bumps into a an unusual man in the shadows.  This is just the beginning of the strange encounters to come.  Later, Sera inadvertently uses her powers to heal a bleeding woman on the street.  The result sets in motion a dangerous series of events, that soon lead some dangerous people right to the twins.  Suddenly, Luke and Sera are surrounded by people, who are not who they seem to be, and with them comes danger.  There is an old prophecy that foretells of twins, who will have the power to change the balance of power.  Are the twins the ones in the prophecy? Can Luke find a way to change the future? 

What I Liked:
*I loved the twins, Luke and Sera.  I admired their deep, close bond.  The two are inseparable.  I liked that the story centered around a brother and sister and the love they have for each other, instead of a typical romance.  In fact, I enjoyed that for the most part, this book doesn't have a romance. There are indications of a developing romance, but it is a small part of the story.  If you are bored of the typical paranormal YA romance novels, then you should give Intangible a try.  It is unique.
*I enjoyed the inclusion of numerous magical/paranormal beings.  This book has elves, shadows, vampires and humans with special gifts.  I like the way the author was able to blend all the entities into one cohesive story.
*I admit, I am a bit tired of vampires.  They are everywhere, and consequently,  they have become common.  Ms. Meyers, however, gives us a vampire, Jonas, who is mysterious and dangerous.  He isn't the dreamy, sparkly type that girls swoon over.  He is edgy, dark and honestly a bit scary.  I appreciated that he is a character that kept me guessing the entire book.  He is always there on the fringes watching, waiting, and I spent the majority of the time wondering about his true intentions.  Is he out to harm the twins, especially Sera?  Even as events unfold, after the end I am still forming conjectures on his intent towards Sera. 
*The author incorporates numerous points of view into the story line.  I know that many readers aren't particularly fond of many voices in a novel.  Do not hesitate over this feature.  Ms. Meyers manages to give us several character view points: Sera, Luke, Marc and Jonah.  She blends all of them seamlessly and I had no problem with the alternating points of view.  In fact it works really well in this book.
*I really enjoyed the selfless nature of Sera.  She is always quietly using her gift to help others, whether it be healing, alleviating stress, making someone mentally feel better or protecting friends from bullying.  Her altruistic nature is remarkable and refreshing.  She is a character who is easy to love.
And The Not So Much:
*I only have a few minor considerations, first I thought the book lacked just a bit of detail on the light and dark elves.  There was very little information on these beings in the story, I was drawn to Fey, a light elf, but ended up not knowing very much about her.  Hopefully, in the next book there will be more on the elves, especially the dark ones.
*Quinn, he is a minor character that kept popping up in the story, who was he?  At the end he reveals something surprising to the twins, leaving me wondering even more about him.  I am anxious to see if he will have a bigger role in the upcoming book.
*I can't say that I completely believed the final reaction that Marc had toward the twins.  His behavior went against all of his previous actions.  It just felt jarring.  I don't think his decision was in line with his feelings and thinking.  I am interested to see how he will return.
*This is a small point, the author weaves a great story and it flows well, but it did lag just a bit in the middle, nothing that should deter you, because it does pick up at the end and the finale is dangerous and exciting. The book concludes with a neat resolution, but she leaves the door open by laying out some tantalizing ideas to follow in the sequel. 
* I sensed that their might be the possibility of a love triangle, and I am fervently hoping that does not come to fruition. 

If you are bored of the mainstream paranormal, and you are wanting to try something outside the typical story lines, pick up Intangible.  Luke and Sera are two refreshing and like-able characters, with unique abilities.  This is a book that mixes many supernatural entities to create an exciting mystery.  I enjoyed Intangible, and I look forward to seeing how the twins will evolve.  If you would like to check out a sampling of these characters you can download a free, short prequel, Intuition, on Amazon. 

Favorite Quotations:

“Fey was breathtaking---she smiled and people melted, she talked to you and you felt all giddy and warm inside.”

“The world, he thought, would smell a lot better if people would lay off the perfume.”

“I didn’t want to be a monster anymore.”  “Humans can be monsters, too.”

“I’m tired of fighting to stay alive--but-dead.  I’m tired of watching from the outside as people live.”

“Crisp autumn air billowed the curtains, swirled into her room.  She breathed it in gratefully.  It smelled cold, sharp.  The first hint of the winter to come.”

“Here was a person with secrets, she thought.  Just like her.”

“He could feel the anticipation of classes ending as the collective thoughts of everyone in the building swelled quicker and louder, before bursting into firecrackers of sounds as soon as the last bell rang.”

“I wanted you both so desperately.  From my soul I wanted you.”

“She could feel her defenses collapsing as she kissed him deeper and deeper, and she let this beautiful boy deeper and deeper into her soul.”

“She inhaled deeply.  The air smelled like the promise of snow.””

This review was first posted on Northern Plunder, if you want to see more reviews please click here.

Whilst doing the daily rounds of visiting your blogs I stumbled across Intangible, it was the cover that took my eye and after reading the synopsis I knew I really wanted to read it. I also knew I was on a book buying ban and I wouldn't be able to get my hands on it any time soon, or so I thought. Not longer after leaving my comment, J. Meyers contacted me and offered me a copy for review. I was so happy, and after reading it I am even more glad that she did. It didn't take many pages for me to realise I was going to adore this book, and then the appearance of Jonas confirmed it. In case you're unaware I am a complete sucker for Vampires, on the synopsis of this book there is no mention of them and low and behold we have one, one who I imagine to be pretty dashing even whilst feeding. ...I'm getting a little sidetracked here.
The story follows twins Sera and Luke as they each start to realise there is more to their powers, more to their life, than they originally thought or knew. Luke has the ability to See the future, but not at his own will, the future he has Seen is not a happy one as it is his sisters death. As the future unfolds before him - bit by bit - he has to piece together what he learns to find a way to stop his sisters fate, but it turns out to be a lot harder than he imagined especially with all the extra attention she starts to get. Sera is a healer and being a healer has it's ups and downs. The obvious positives about it is she can heal people who are hurt physically or emotionally, the negatives are that this isn't a natural gift and she needs to be very careful with how she goes about her healing to not get noticed. Unfortunately it does, by the wrong kind of people. It is because of this that their lives soon get turned upside down which is when the book gets very fast paced as we follow the twins, their best friend - Feyth - and Sera's "new boyfriend", not the mention the dashing Vampire Jonas! I adored this book and even though I tried to guess the ending - which I do with every book because I like to figure out what is coming - I actually didn't figure this one out which is definitely good news for me because well (going off topic here a little bit) I'll be watching a Vampire Diaries episode and 5 minutes in I tell my Dad what is going to happen at the end and I'm always right. But as I was saying it was nice to be surprised by the outcome of everything, I have a feeling that it has something to do with the fact I was super emerged in the book and could hardly think about anything else (completely unlike Vampire Diaries, I mean c'mon how many parent figures do you HAVE to kill off?). At the end of the book it gives a little sneak preview into what to expect from the next book by briefly introducing two new characters which I'm super happy happened because otherwise I would have been left confused as to how the series could follow so now I have to sit and wait patiently for the second to arrive, and I'm no good at being patient! To sum up, I loved this book and highly recommend it to well, everyone and once I'm allowed to buy books again I will be buying a paperback copy so it can join my stack of books (I don't have a book shelf...).

Intangible was a great paranormal young adult read. The word that comes to mind when I think of Intangible is Unexpected. There were so many twists and turns in the story that I never felt bored or that I knew what was about to happen. I really liked both Luke and Sera and enjoyed reading from both of their points of view. We also read from a few other characters point of view at different times and at first I found that a bit jarring, but as I got further into the novel I knew to expect it at times and actually really enjoyed getting such a full view of the story.

I really liked that the twins already knew about their powers when we met them. This is just a personal issue for me, I feel like I read too many stories where we are taken through the story of someone figuring out what they can do. While there is still a mystery element as the twins don't know why they have powers, I like that they already know a lot. Sera has an interesting gift in my opinion. Not only can she heal people but she can also implant an idea in them as well. That is something I have not seen before and I like how it was used in the story.

There were some other interesting characters in the story but my favorite was Jonas. I hope that we get to read more about him in the future. I feel like we got a lot about his history and really got to see his personality. In contract to that, Sera and Luke's friends Fey and Quinn were left as a bit of a mystery. I liked them both I feel that I don't really know them that well.

Overall, this story was one that I really enjoyed. The plot and the characters were interesting and unique. Some readers may find the pace a bit slow but I enjoyed living in the story for a little while. I am excited to see what J. Meyers does next; I sure hope it includes Jonas whatever it is!

BOTTOM LINE: Great paranormal YA, I loved it!

I really enjoyed this book. It's the story about twins, Luke and Sera, that have the power to heal others and see the future. Not many know about their power, and the ones that do either want to stop them or protect them. The premise was really interesting and the rest of the book didn't disappoint. The book is very well written. There weren't any inconsistencies with the characters, the storyline, or with the powers they had. Everything gets explained and the characters come together in the end. The ending definitely left room for a sequel, and I'm looking forward to reading more in this series!

*****FINAL RATING: 4.80 STARS*****

Intangible is easily one of the best books I've ever read. I adored it a ridiculous amount and devoured every single page. It was fun, exciting, and fresh. It was completely original and had so many new ideas that pleasantly thrilled and surprised me. At every turn, something was happening or something was about to happen. I was never bored.

Well, what can I say? Luke was an incredible character. I definitely really loved him. He's fiercely protective of his sister, yet not so tied down that he gets dragged along hopelessly into everything she does, but chooses to include himself when it is for both their sakes. He has a strong determination about him that serves him well and makes it clear that he is no one to be messed with. Luke is also strong and sweet, with a good head on his shoulders and an impressive set of morals and admirable tenacity.

I had trouble relating to Sera at several points in the book, but she always managed to redeem herself in the end. I didn't like some of the choices she made, but at the same time I understand and respect why she made them. Like her brother, she always tries to do the right thing, although personally I found her to be slightly more selfish. But only slightly. Sera was a fantastic character who really turned out to be a very real and human heroine with flaws and strengths, which was very nice to see.

I have no clue if Marc will continue to be a love interest in future books, but because I cannot bring myself to skip my "love interest" section, I'm putting him here anyway. I wasn't a huge Marc fan at first, but he grew on me slowly, and I ended up really admiring and liking him for putting up a fight and for some of the decisions he made. I didn't like his choice at the end, though, and found it very selfish. Still, overall I liked Marc as a character and found him to be very compelling. We will be seeing him again, and I am looking forward to it.

I thought Fey was a good character. Her immense beauty kind of bothered me at first, but later I understood why this was, and I was fine with that. I loved the strong sense of love or Luke and Sera that emanated from her and also her devotion. She would stop at nothing to keep them safe, and that was so beautiful to see.
Jonas was undoubtedly my favorite character. He has an air of mystery that slowly fades away but still isn't completely gone by the time the book comes to a close, leaving us, as readers, wondering until the next installment. He was so sweet at times and had such a touching yet heartbreaking short background story. He was complicated and yet in some ways completely understandable. I loved him.

Intangible's plot is breathtaking and full of anticipation.

Which sounds totally ridiculous.

But is totally true.

Every moment something was happening. In the rare moments that didn't have anything happen, the anticipation was so intense that I was on the edge of my seat at all times. It kept me interested and involved the entire time, so much so that I rarely put it down, even for a few moments. I read it in two sittings because I simply could not get enough.

Luke's visions developed slowly and became ridiculously insane (in a good way) ridiculously fast. I had to know what happened next, and I was just as eager to know his progress in trying to change the future.

Sera was trying to live a normal life, but when she hears about Luke's vision this becomes difficult for her, too. She becomes stronger for it, though, and that is very nice to see.

The plot of this book was original and fresh, and I loved every bit of it.

Mostly only Sera has a romance in this book, but hints of a possible romance for Luke and a possible love triangle for Sera emerge in hints. Honestly, Sera and Marc's romance veered a bit towards instalove, which was a bit disappointing, but I have definitely seen worse. And they had real chemistry, which helped convince me, too. After all, I'm young and still remember being infatuated and in young love. It kind of irritated me when Sera wouldn't stay away from Marc even when everyone was telling her too for very good reasons, but at the same time I completely understand why she didn't. As a general rule, Sera and Marc's romance moved a bit too quickly but was very, very sweet and definitely believable.

Meyers has a beautiful new voice that I hope to soon see integrated further into YA. The description is beautiful and chock-full of gorgeous images, but doesn't get tiresome or irritating. Something unusual that I really loved: the story is told from five different points of view in the third person. It was definitely different, but I adored it. I loved being privy to so much information and not being left, frustrated, in the dark. It was easy to tell whose point of view we were getting at all times and wasn't at all confusing.

I was completely blown away. It was perfect. It threw in something not altogether unexpected but still somehow just surprising enough. It left me with a huge cliffhanger to deal with and I am totally unsure as to how I will handle the wait. Everything fell into place perfectly, but there were enough unknowns that waiting for the next book will be, like, torture. It was clearly well-thought-out and it honestly could not have been better.

As aforementioned, I will certainly be reading the next book in this series eagerly. It left me wanting so much more with an intense eagerness. I cannot wait for Luke, Sera, and everyone's story to continue. I also recommend that everyone read Intuition, which is a short story companion to Intangible, and it is FREE. So go, get yourself a copy.

Original review at:

I feel like this book had everything to pique my interest when I first received the review request – an awesome cover and a great blurb. I’ve never read a book about twins before!

I love the relationship between Sera and Luke. They’re kind of like the “stereotypical” twins because they’re great friends and seem to know what each other is thinking all the time. This is actually kind of an eye-opener for me because I went to high school with twin sisters that disliked each other a lot! So it gave me a fuzzy feeling every time Sera and Luke did their “twin” thing.

I like this world that J. Meyers created, with the vampires and the faes and other supernatural powers. Sera’s ability to deal with vampires was also refreshing. I was definitely shocked when I read that! I also love that I got to see everyone’s POV. That way we got to dig deeper into the story and the motivations behind everyone. However, sometimes the story did drag a little because of so many characters’ thoughts. In a way, we know exactly how the end was going to play out with Luke's vision, but it took forever to get there.

My favorite characters have to be Luke and Jonas. Luke just because he’s such a sweetheart and funny person! I cheered for him the entire time as he looked for ways to change the future. Jonas because he’s a vampire. Enough said. He had everything I love in a good vampire character, and I like that he’s not completely good. He’s still loyal to Lilith and a vampire, but he did what he thought was right.

Now, Sera, I have my reservations. At first I really liked her, because she’s genuinely a good person. I loved how her need to heal was portrayed, but sometimes it felt like her healing wasn’t for the other person for to satisfy her own need, like that scene with Jonas. It’s OK when other people ask her to heal, not when she heals a person out of her “own need” to heal and stop respecting other people’s wishes. And let’s just say that every time she indiscriminately used her mental powers to persuade someone I wanted to smack her! She has no right to do that! It’s good she’s a flawed character, but just not one that I liked, especially since I don’t think she actually changed from beginning to end. She still couldn’t accept herself for who she is, still thinks that she’s freak.

And Marc, oh Marc! How you stole my heart and tore it into pieces. I liked Marc so much! Here’s a tortured “hero” who had to choose between good and evil, but he surprised the hell out of me at the end! Then I was left hanging, because I’m not sure what the point of him was? Oh well, I had a lot of fun reading about you, Marc, so I forgive you.

As for the ending, I love how there was a final resolution to everything, but the sudden appearance of the other two Gifteds threw me off. Since they weren’t mentioned at all before, it felt like a blatant attempt to set up for the next book and left me confused as hell. Oh well, I’ll try not to think about that part of the ending too much.

Overall, I definitely recommend this to lovers of paranormal YA looking for something different than the usual love triangle!

Just another couple of high school students in yet another YA Paranormal/Supernatural book? Nope! J. Meyers has given us what could be the next big series!

The story is set around a set of twins, Luke and Sera (short for Seraphina) who have very unique gifts. Sera is a Healer who has always helped anyone in need without notice from the rest of the world. Luke is a Seer who can see the future of anyone around him and has never been wrong. The one exception to his ability is he can't see his own future. Luke gets what he calls a sense of impending doom and the longer the feeling lasts before a vision appears, the more time Luke has to figure out how to help the person in need. Unfortunately the vision troubling him these days is the one where he has seen Sera's death. The feeling of impending doom stays with him for quite a while and he gets new flashes of her death as the story progresses, torturing him and giving him very few clues as to when she will die and where it will take place.

Luke, Sera and their closest and dearest friend, Fey go about their lives while Luke battles his inner turmoil to figure out how to perhaps finally save his sister from her fate. They make a few supernatural friends and find out that some friends have gifts of their own that they've been hiding from Luke and Sera all their lives. They slowly find out their place in the world of what is known as The Realm in which Lilith, the Queen of Vampires, is the person or thing to be feared the most.

This story is fast paced and fresh. It is witty and comical at times. She writes the relationships between the characters in a very real way, I often found myself giggling at the quick banter and puns tossed back and forth between Luke and Sera but also the interactions they have with their friends as well. The characters come to life on the page and that's what makes you want to keep reading. I became invested in the characters and their well being. My heart hurt for Luke as he internalizes this nightmare of his sister dying as he desperately tries put the pieces together before it's too late. He loves her so much, she's his other half as he often refers to her and he will stop at nothing to save her.

So many books now a days are filled with these supernatural, magical elements and yet J. Meyers manages to weave them into an energetic new story. I loved this book and can't wait to see what Meyers has in store for us in the next installment of the Intangible series. If you're a fan of The Caster Chronicles by Kami Garcia, I'm confident you'll want to add this one to your collection as well.

Why isn't everybody reading this? Seriously?!

Is it because this is a self-published novel? Well, don't let that stop you. I've read my share of self-pubs and I'm also one of those readers whose eyes magically zero-in on typos, spelling and grammatical errors. I can tell you, Intangible is an absolute pleasure to read ~ not a flaw in sight!

Besides being devoid of typical self-pub landmines, J. Meyers crafted a unique and remarkable world. Ms. Meyers uses the usual suspects for the other races in her world but she put very cool spins on their traits that I absolutely loved! And nope, not sharing what races they are! You'll need to read the book to see how Ms. Meyers' world is built and who's in it.

Pacing of the story was excellent. Often times you'll find debut books in a series (oh, please let this be a series) lag in the beginning as the world is unfolded and explained for the reader. I really didn't feel a sluggish pace at all. I was intrigued and engaged the entire length of the book. Granted, by the end I was a bit more engaged but hey, isn't that the way a book is supposed to be?

I have to say I really loved that a few of the characters had such dark personalities that they almost felt too intense for a YA book. Ms. Meyers didn't shy away from her characters doing some scary stuff but nothing was too graphic and a lot of it was left to the imagination, a la "Psycho". Her characters were not perfect, by any means, and one or two of them really pissed me off towards the end. But that's life; nobody is perfect.

So, why was this not a five star review for me? This was a tough one for me not to give five stars but when it came down to it, I didn't cry, I didn't scream, and I wanted a bit more drama during the "final battle". Totally a goofy, personal thing.

But if you want an easy, fun, fast read with just enough characters to make it interesting, tack on multiple POVs that let you see all sides of the story without confusing you, then you definitely want to read this book!!! If you want to just try it out, you know, see if you like J. Meyers' writing, might I suggest her short story prequel? It's called Intuition and it's FREE! It's on Amazon, B&N and Kobo sites :)

Review originally posted at Doodle's Book Blog

Intangible was a wonderful, entertaining read! J. Meyers took a world of mythical beings and provided the reader with a suspenseful ride through an exquisitely written tale.

Let me introduce you to the main characters. First we have the twins, Sera and Luke Raine. They aren't like your usual twins, they get along and always know when something is bothering the other. Sera can heal people. Luke sees the future. Sera is selfless, witty, intelligent, and rarely does anything to serve her own purpose. Luke is caring, a great shoulder to lean on, and he is protective of his sister. Then we have Fey, Sera and Luke's best friend. She is sly, helpful, and down to earth . Next is Marc, the mysterious new guy in town who needs to figure out where his loyalties lie. Finally we have Jonas. Fey has known him for a long time and doesn't trust him, but to Sera and Luke, he is mysterious and creepy.

What I liked most about this book was that it wasn't your everyday run of the mill paranormal read. Usually we only find vampires and werewolves matched together, but Intangible brings elves, vampires and gifted humans to the table. I found this to be very refreshing and a much appreciated break from the norm.

I really enjoyed the flow of this book. The point of view changes throughout the story and I found this to be really helpful with character development. Normally, I don't see siblings getting along in real life let alone in books, but Sera and Luke's relationship was very believable and you could see how in sync they were with each other. The change in point of view also helps to fill the reader in on the motivation behind each characters actions. I questioned Jonas and Fey's actions on occasion, but their reasoning was later revealed and everything fell into place.

I highly recommend this book to all paranormal/fantasy fans. This was an enjoyable read and I am eager to read what J. Meyers has in store for us next.

FTC Disclosure: I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion.

I have had this book on my to read list for a while. It didn't disappoint. I award this book 4.5 stars.

Intangible by J. Meyers is a compelling read about twins-- Luke and Sera who have secret powers that they can't really share with anyone they know. Even their parents who have probably seen some of their powers don't talk about it. Sera meets a dark, handsome stranger with a big secret as well, and also runs into someone else who may possibly be a... vampire? What happens next is really fun and because of that, I am not going to talk any more about the plot.

After reading a lot of duds recently, this book was refreshing. The two main characters and their powers were intriguing and I found myself caring about what happened to them. The supernatural world that Meyers creates has a new twist on what we know from other books-- nothing is exactly what it seems. I found myself getting sucked in and not able to step away until the end. The book is complete in itself but keeps enough questions open that this could lead to a sequel or two.

I wish I could talk more in depth about all of the characters because all of them are delightfully three dimensional-- but I fear that will give too much away. Just suffice to say, this book was entertaining from beginning to end.

Overall, a terrific, fast paced read, with engaging three-dimensional characters. I will definitely be sticking around for the next book.

*4.5 stars*

Intangible is an enthralling book that tells the story of Luke and Sera Raine, twins who share more than just a sibling bond - they also share mysterious preternatural gifts. This is a secret they guard with their lives, and they live in fear of what might happen if people found out. They’re about to realize it isn’t just “people” finding out their secret that would put their lives and loved ones in imminent danger. What follows is an exciting paranormal adventure full of mystery and magic and brimming with the supernatural.

Intangible has a huge cast of characters that were so much fun to read about. The author did a great job fleshing each one out, yet leaving you wanting more. Luke and Sera are very likeable male and female protagonists with a story that is heartbreaking and intriguing at the same time. Sera is so lovely and selfless, always using her powers to help those in need. I couldn’t help but feel bad for Sera, knowing that she keeps others at a distance out of fear of being rejected. She never knows if someone likes her for her or if it’s a side effect of her power. So when Marc, the handsome stranger, arrives in town, will she be able to trust him with her heart? Or does Marc have secrets of his own?

“He wanted the girl. This girl. More than anything else he’d ever wanted. She was amazing. And if she could do what he thought she could do?
That just made him want her even more.”

Luke is the guy everyone loves. Friendly, easy on the eyes, and a very protective brother. He fills the “hero” role quite well. He would love nothing more than to see Sera happy, and Marc may have been just the guy to make that happen…until Luke’s vision reveals the opposite. That’s not the only vision Luke has that has him racing against the clock and, for the first time in their lives, hiding something from his sister. Will Luke be able to change his vision this time and save the most important person in his life?

Fey, Sera’s best friend, was a force to be reckoned with. I wish Fey had been more forthcoming with her story… or that the twins would have figured it out earlier, so I could have more details about this interesting and pivotal character. I hope we can delve further into Fey’s background in the next book.

Then, there is my favorite character: Jonas. Oh, Jonas. Dark, beautiful, brooding Jonas. Jonas is exactly the kind of guy that I love to read about. No flowery, flattery compliments - just straightforward, down-to-business hotness. His fierce need to protect and his struggle to do the right thing make Jonas someone I can’t get enough of. I can’t wait to read more about him!

J. Meyers has created a captivating world full of fascinating, mythical inhabitants.

“‘I thought I’d call the police and ask them to come along.’ She mimed holding a phone to her ear. ‘Hi, my brother and boyfriend have been kidnapped by vampires and taken into the Realm. Can you help me save them?’ Oh, but I should probably tell them to beware of the goblins and faeries they may encounter on the way.’

Jonas’s jaw dropped.
‘You’ve seen goblins and faeries? Together?'

‘No, of course I haven’t. There’s no such thing as goblins and faeries. That’s not the poin--’ Sera stopped at the look on Jonas’s face. ‘You have got to be kidding me.’ Was every mythological creature actually real?”

I really enjoyed the different points of view throughout Intangible. Multiple POV’s can be confusing, but I felt the author did a tremendous job making the dialogue flow and the conversations easy to follow. The author really allows the reader to get inside the characters' heads, which makes for a nice change of pace and an absorbing read. I love the beautiful, vivid descriptions the author provides and would love to visit Vermont one day in the future:

“They stood side by side, staring out at the water. There was no warmth to be had from the sun shining on them, but it was beautiful glinting off the smooth surface of the water. If they stood there long enough, they’d see the sun go down behind the Adirondacks across the lake, leaving a color-streaked sky.”

The magnificence of the Realm was breathtaking:

“More colorful, more beautiful, more intense. More everything.

From the side of the mountain where they stood, she could see rolling green hills meet huge blue mountains off in the distance, capped by a perfect, clear blue sky. The air was just the right temperature…

Trees covered the hills, and gave way to lovely fields of grasses and wildflowers of purple, red, and orange.

…the air felt clean and alive, and smelled like grass, flower, and wood.”

With so many twists, turns, and secrets lurking around each corner, Intangible keeps you guessing until the very end! I look forward to reading more of Mrs. Meyers’s work and can’t wait to read the next installment in this series.

A huge thank you to the author for sending me Intangible in exchange for my honest review.

I got a copy for review in exchange for an honest review.

I got his book from the author in exchange for a honest review. I really liked this book. I was a bit surprised by how much I ended up liking this book. Intangible is a very original and intriguing story. The story is about the twins Sera and Luke, they both have special powers. Sera can heal people and Luke can see the future. The book starts when Luke get's a vision of Sera dying and his visions are never wrong. Contrary to what the blurb suggests there is more to the book than just Luke trying to prevent his vision from happening. Many things are happening and we are introduced to a very interesting world with many interesting characters. I am not going to spoil anything about the story line, because I liked the surprise. The book was very different from what I expected.

The story is really good, it kept my attention and when I was not reading the book I kept thinking about it. I wanted to know what would happen and I just wanted to keep reading. This book certainly has that keep-reading feel. There where some parts that where a bit slow, but I really liked the story. It was original and intriguing.

The characters where really great. I had the feeling I really got to know them. Especially Sera, I really liked her and we get to know many of her feelings and even what her hobbies are. I really liked her. On the contrary I would've liked a bit more information about Luke, where the short story is told from his persepctive, this story is mostly told from Sera's perspective.
This brings me to another point, this story is told from multiple perspectives. I always like it when stories are told from multiple persepctives, because we get to know more characters and why they act a certain way. It gives the story more depth and I really liked it. Every character has his secrets, but due to the multiple perspectives the reader does get a sense of who everyone is and why they act like they do. I think the characters are certainly one of the strong points of the book and I really liked getting to know them all. The min point of the multiple perspectives is that at the beginning it always takes some getting used to.

There where only some minor points that bothered me about the story. I found some of the action a bit strange. There are some battles, but I found that some people just won a bit too easy and this wasn't believeable. Also I think it was strange that when one of the characters holds a knife for the first time she is immediately able to deal damage with it, I think fighting is something you must learn and the first time you use a weapon it isn't that easy. I also found the ending a bit strange, I expected more of it. More I won't say because I don't want to spoil anything. Also there are still many question left unanshwered by this book, but I am sure we get most of those answhers in the next book.

To conclude: I really liked this book. The story was great and I just wanted to keep reading this book. I also really liked the characters and the multiple perspectives which gave us an idea of who everyone was. There where some small minor details I didn't like, but overal this was a great book. I really want to read the next book.

I went into this book thinking that it was a slightly paranormal story about two teens who have some sort of psychic abilities--which was more than enough to intrigue me--but I was so pleasantly surprised when the story revealed and offered so much more! Intangible is filled with several different classes of supernatural individuals, all of which I love. I devoured this book rather quickly since there never seemed to be a shortage of excitement and new information regarding the vast array of characters within the plot. J. Meyers is an excellent writer and she's got me completely addicted and dedicated to the characters within this book.

Luke and Sera are the main focus and main characters of this well-crafted novel. They are twins with some seriously gifted and wonderful abilities--she can heal people with her touch and he has visions of the future--and their bond as siblings and twins is incredible. In fact, their loyalty and connection to one another is one of the things I adore most about this book. It's completely believable. They would do anything for eachother, which is a fact that is proven when Luke has a vision about Sera dying and then all hell seems to break loose soon after. In the midst of trying to save Sera's life the twins face heartbreak, love and a new knowledge of a world separate from everything they've ever known--one where they may be destined to play a huge role.

Intangible is told through several alternating perspectives (although the majority of the time it's Sera and Luke's), which is something that is hard to pull off, but it was executed so flawlessly in this case. I liked the variety that came from this and it made me giddy to be aware of information before some of the other characters were made privy to it.

Speaking of other characters, I'd like to make it clear how much I thoroughly enjoyed all of them! I'm so smitten with Jonas; he has such an edge of power and mystery which is appealing in itself, but when he was around Sera and she brought out the humanity and the protectiveness in him, it made me melt! I'm totally team Jonas! Plus, how can you not like a tall, dark and handsome guy? Then there's Fey, Sera and Luke's best friend, who is capable of so much it will blow your mind. Even Lilith, the crazy/evil villain has a certain allure that made me appreciate her character. There was also Marc, the new kid in town. Reading things from his point of view at times always left me feeling something different every time, especially when it involved Sera. I felt bad for him one minute and wanted to punch his lights out the next.

There is so much going on in this book but the author presents and explains it all without it being overwhelming. The ending was just plain fantastic and I'm pretty sure I finished reading the last pages with wide eyes and an open mouth. I'm assuming and I'm desperately hoping that there is going to be a second book, because I honestly didn't want this one to end. I'm in awe at all of the possibilities surrounding the future of Luke, Sera and their allies!

Review (along with author interview and giveaway) originally posted here

Intangible cuts right to the chase: it opens with Luke having a vision in which Sera, his twin sister, is killed. Luke's visions have never been false and he's never been able to change them, as much as he has tried to. But since it is Sera, his twin sister, he has to try. There is a prophecy, there are vampires and we are introduced to a boy controlled by The Shadows. There is much more to Luke's vision, much more to his and Sera's lives, than he could ever imagine.

Intangible was the kind of book that slowly crept up on me and before I knew it, I was hooked. It took me a while to get acquainted with Luke and Sera. They kept their powers a secret from the rest of the world and used them responsibly (except for instance when Sera, in a fit of rage, succumbs to pettiness). They shared a strong bond and I liked how well they got along. It was obvious that they depended on each other and they shared a pleasant and easy going relationship that brought a smile to my face.

The other Gifteds also fascinated me. Marc's conflict and situation disturbed me. It was so sad to watch him get caught in the crossfire. I totally understood his anger towards the end of the book. I couldn't help wondering what Quinn was throughout and hope we'll see more of him in the second part of the series.

But more than anything, I loved the Realm and the creatures of the Realm. I enjoyed meeting the different kinds of vampires, Light Elves and Dark Elves. I loved the sheer variety and how they weren't cardboard cut-out versions from every other paranormal story. They were well crafted and original. Among the vampires, Jonas was such a well developed character. He had carved his own path for himself and was extremely unpredictable. I also liked what I learned about the Light Elves and would love to learn more about them and their lore in the future books.

The story is told through varying perspectives and for once, that didn't really bother me. It was the perfect way to tell this story as so much was going on! The different perspectives made it possible to get a full picture of what was going on as the plot thickened.

At the end of the book, a lot was revealed and yet, it is just the beginning and I'm so glad! I cannot wait to meet these characters again and learn even more about them! The way it ended made me love this book all the more. It has gotto be one of my favourite endings! We were introduced to a host of new characters who charmed me right away.

Intangible is a thoroughly engaging and original novel that I'm sure you will enjoy reading! I cannot wait to see where this series is headed. I will definitely be on the lookout for the release of the next book of the series!

The moment I became aware of ‘Intangible’ I did some researching and was instantly intrigued. Twins with special powers to heal and see the future? Sounded fantastic to me. I’ll admit I was pulled in because of the twins. I have a soft spot for twin things because I’m a twin too. But the fact that main characters Luke and Sera were twins became a minor part of why I liked ‘Intangible’.

Luke and Sera have a secret they have been trying to keep for their entire lives. Sera has the ability to heal living things – whether physical pain or emotional, her only limit is to herself; while Luke can see the future – though he cannot change it. Trouble brews for the twins when Luke has a vision that haunts him from the moment it is place within his mind: Sera is going to die. I’m always a little curious about characters that can see the future; I wonder if the ability would drive them mental, and in Luke’s case it does a little – only because he’s so desperate to save his sister, and his determination made me love him; because who wouldn’t love a guy who’d do anything he can to keep his sister safe? Written from the point of view of many main characters, not just Sera and Luke; ‘Intangible’ tells the tale of secrets, powers and prophecy; and the multiple POVs just help to give readers a complete understanding of what is happening within the story – it’s the characters who are left in the dark. I think this is half the fun. We are aware of so much more by not just focusing on the twins, but Marc, the mysterious new boy who tries to make his way into their tight circle of friends; Jonas, the vampire who is keeping an eye on Sera; and brief glimpses of Fey, best friend of the twins.

The twins aren’t the only special people in the book. They come across a mixed group of people throughout the course of the book; gifted teens like themselves and supernatural beings – mainly vampires – that change the way they think completely. I love Sera and Luke’s reactions to these supernatural beings. Unlike some characters in books, despite obviously knowing that magical things occur in the world, the twins are not quick to believe in the extraordinary. I really enjoyed seeing them laugh at the absurdity of the paranormal world and being nervous at the thought of people following them. It was a refreshing change to the more common instant acceptance that often features in YA books.

My only issue with this book was in terms of romance. There wasn’t enough for me. I’m a bit of a romance junkie; when the flirtation starts, I always want more. I feel I may have been attached to the wrong guy for a while, hoping to draw out a stronger romantic connection than we’re given; but there are no illusions for the reader, with the many POVs we can guess a lot more of the romantic direction because we know who to trust and who not to trust. I think I was just in denial.

A really enjoyable read. Looking forward to seeing what Luke and Sera face next.

Intangible has everything that supernatural fans would want in a book! Vampires, elves, prophecy, and magic.

Intangible is about twins, Sera and Luke, who are believed to be the Children of the Prophecy, children born with special abilities to heal (Sera) and to see into the future (Luke). It is believed that these children will bring a change into the world, whether it be good or bad. That’s a lot of information for a set of teens to absorb right?

In her true nature, Sera is unable to turn away from anyone who needs some sort of healing (body, mind, and soul). And it is because of her gift that she is sought out by the most fearsome creatures that walk the night. Some want her to help them change what they have become, and others like Lilith, the mother of all vampires….the head honcho…want to see her dead.

Luke is the ever faithful brother. With the gift to see things that have not yet come to pass, Luke is all too aware that all of his visions always happen, and can’t do anything to change the outcome. When he has a vision of seeing the death of his sister, Sera, he will do anything he can to change the fates and save his twin from her demise.

With the help of friends like Fey, Jonas, and Marc, the twins do what they can to survive in a new world that they did not know existed, and where danger and threat is ever present.

Intangible by J. Meyers was a wickedly awesome ride! Chock full of action and sexy brooding characters by the name of sexy Jonas. When I started reading about Jonas, only one other character came to mind that reminded me of this hot vamp. I’m sure we all know who Angel aka Angelus from Buffy the Vampire Slayer is. Yah, Jonas reminded me so much of him. With his lurking in the shadows ways.

I loved the writing in this book, but most of all I loved the interaction between the characters. Meyers has put in so much humour in the book, especially with the words that come out of both Sera and Luke. Their jabs at each other, as well as towards their friends was so fun to read! It’s what made me love these two characters so much. I felt as though they were my own friends come to life!

The action weaved throughout Intangible was plentiful, and when it came to the final showdown…it was non-stop. Once you think that all has been dealt with and nothing more could happen, Meyer’s throws in another twist which will leave you up late at night to find out what the outcome will be, and to anxiously await the next thrill. I personally would love to see Sera and Jonas together, and perhaps see if there are any deeper feelings between Luke and Fey.

I recommend this book to fans of anything supernatural, who are looking for characters to fall in love with and claim as friends, and are looking for a ride that will leave you crying out for the next book!

Read this and other reviews at my blog.

Twins, Sera and Luke have special gifts. Sera can heal anyone with her touch, and Luke can see the future, but can't do anything about it. When Luke has a vision that predicts Sera's death, his gift starts to look more like a curse. But there are darker forces at work than either of them could have imagined. Others have learned about them and see their gifts as a curse and a danger to their very kind. Can Luke find a way to change Sera's fate, or will the dark forces at work do it for him, when they kill the both of them?

This novel was fantastic. I am kicking myself for waiting so long to read it. I wasn't expecting a lot of what it delivered, which is my own fault for not trusting the Goodreads Genres anymore so I didn't even bother to read them. This was just, so wonderful.

Luke and Sera are amazing characters! They have such a fantastic bond with one another. I love their personalities. I love the comedic banter they share. I loved seeing their true love and devotion to one another. This is the type of love you want to see in a family. I am jealous of their closeness. Jonas is an interesting character. I didn't like him at first, but the more I saw him, the more I couldn't get enough of him. I would love to see Sera and Jonas have something between them at some point. The connection with his sister would make it borderline creepy, but it would still work. Fey, I liked in the beginning. As you begin to learn more about her, she starts to feel a little standoffish, but I still like her. Marc, I didn't like him from the beginning. Everything about him, I just didn't like. I don't feel like he deserved what he got, but I still don't like him.

The plot was amazing. It was written with a perfect flow, everything happened at just the right time. The tension building was superb. Every page draws you in more until you cannot put it down. As more elements of the story come to light, and you learn more along with the characters, you get so invested in the story and the characters. The one thing I didn't like what the changing of POVs. I love it when authors use these, but I don't like it when it isn't very clearly labeled. POVs would change between chapters, sometimes mid-chapter, and although there were decorative line breakers and the writing was fairly clear about who was speaking, it was still slightly unsettling. There were two times I can remember where I had to step back and re-read a paragraph because I was so absorbed in the story that I was reading too quickly and didn't catch the change and then got confused.

This book was fabulous, and if gifted kids, vampires, and elves are within your interests, then you are a fool not to give this book a shot. It was well worth it.

Twins with the special ability to heal and see the future are born, and with them a prophecy that will leave another world in desperation to either kill them or save them.
Luke and Sera always kept their abilities secret, afraid of what the world might thing about them and to be deemed freaks. But no secret can be hidden forever and when Sera accidently heals a vampire female to human the twin’s life turns to chaos.

With the aid of Fey their guardian and friend they were kept hidden and had no knowledge of their prophecy. But can she keep them alive now that the truth is out? Aid comes from a vampire guardian called Jonas, who finds the twins at first a danger to their world. But the more he witnesses their integrity and know that they would be the saviors of his world, the more he becomes protective of them just like Fey.

But with Lilith the mother of all vampires hunting them down, the twins are in great danger. Can Luke save his sister from death? Time is running out and impended doom is approaching.

Luke and Sera was great characters. I loved their playfulness with each other and watch as this spread to other characters. Sera is strong from the beginning, and no matter how much danger she is in she does what her hearts feels is right and help others. Luke’s character was a little more reserved, rather than run into danger he tends to step back and see more. I really loved Fey. Not one for many words she gets the job done, and do not get her mad. Jonas was great too. His “stand my ground” attitude shined out, and when he starts protecting the twins you can see why he is a guardian. He is definitively a character with great integrity and I can’t wait to see more from him. As for Marc, well let’s just say I didn’t expect that of him in the end. Major surprise there.

Mmm this is a hard one to compare to other books. This book has a lot of elements others have but not the exact same, which is great. Beautiful Creatures did pop up, but there was just something all new around this one.

What an absolute fresh and interesting plot and characters. I really enjoyed this book. Yes we do have vampires, but for a change other magical elements overruled them a bit. I loved the plot it’s so exciting and I could not wait to see if Luke’s vision would come true. I was however deeply disappointed in Marc, I mean dude come on. J Meyers has a great writing style and you will smile a lot with all the teasing going around. In short this book was so welcoming that I felt right at home and just could not put it down. I highly recommend this to magical and gifted readers. Really awesome read and I can’t wait to get to book two.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. Everything you are about to read is my full and honest opinion about the book!

Okay, this book was a AMAZING!

I was on the edge of my seat, screaming at some points!

To be honest, this book started out kind of slow and at some points. I was tempted to give up, but then I kept telling myself it's going to get better and BOY did it! I was SO HAPPY that I did not give up because I would of definitely missed out on a AMAZING book!

In this book we have two twins. Two very special twins, with very special gifts!

Sera is a Healer, she can heal anything that is damaged on a person, physical, emotional, anything that is hurting a person. Later on in the book she learns more about her gift and what extent her power can go to and how to some what control it, something she has never been able to do before! Sera is very special, their is no one like her. She wants to help people and use her gift for good, but their is some who sees her gift as evil, as a curse that must me dealt with! Some see her as a threat to their kind and will stop at nothing to end her life and rid the world of the threat she possesses!

Then we have her twin brother Luke. Luke is a Seer, he can see the future before it happens and has always thought of his gift as a blessing. That is until he starts having visions of someone being murdered, but it's not just anyone he's seeing murdered! It's Sera, his sister! He has tried to change the future and has always failed no matter what he does!

Intangible is the debut novel of indie author J. Meyers and I found it to be a refreshing twist. Meyers gives us a tale steeped in prophecy, danger, secrets, vampires and endless possibilities for future novels. I easily consumed this entertaining tale in a few hours.

In the novel we meet Sera and Luke Raines. They are twins living with their mother. While they may seem like ordinary high school students they each have a gift or curse. Sera is able to heal things and Luke has premonitions. His visions always come true and despite trying he hasn’t been able to stop them. After a horrific experience with their paternal grandmother the twins have been careful not to reveal their talents. Things are about to turn the twins world upside down. There are those who seek to destroy them. When Luke has a vision of Sera’s death he begins to try and uncover clues to stop the vision from occurring. The tale that unfolds was captivating as we learn more about the twins and their destiny.

Sera is a real loner. Her touch can heal you, relax you and unfortunately, it also makes you like Sera. This has led her to be very leery of everyone; she yearns for real romance and real friendships. She has a passion for painting, is loyal to those she lets in and is very compassionate. She heals whenever she can. Luke is the head of household, even though his Dad isn’t too far away. He feels the need to protect Sera and dealing with these visions of her death is tearing him apart. Fey is a friend to both Sera and Luke. She is very protective of them and doesn’t want to see them hurt. I loved discovering who she was and watching her role develop. There are two young men who show an interest in Sera. Jonas, who is handsome, confident and seems wise beyond his years and then there is Marc, a troubled young man who recently arrived from Vermont. Meyers also gives us characters to fear and hate.

The world-building in Meyer’s novel is interesting and the premise unique. While it wasn’t a complicated world, I liked the tale of the twins and the prophecy. The pace of the novel was good although most of the action was delivered in the final chapters. While I still have questions, what was revealed felt believable. I am looking forward to the next installment in this series. There was a little hint of romance but it was secondary to plot.
I want to thank the author for providing this ARC in exchange for my unbiased review.

I really loved this story, it was great. The writing was smooth and flowing, down right pretty in places. I didn't want to put it down, I wanted to know what was going to happen to Luke and Sera or what unwanted predicament they were about to embark upon.
Luke and Sera are twins, and they are special. They each have a special gift Luke is a Seer and Sera has the ability to heal. I loved that they were twins and have a deep connection with each other and have these amazing gifts. When they were quite young they relized what they could do and that not everybody appreciated their abilities. That in fact some ridiculed and thought them to be the damned. Luke and Sera learned early on to hide there gifts from everyone including their family. To the outside world they look like any other teenagers. Then there is Marc gorgeous Marc tall blue eyed and red haired and so sweet, just what Sera needs but....he has a secret that could destroy the twins. I really liked Marc he is so sweet and good to and with Sera. He feels familiar to her and she can let down her guard a little. With that said at the same time I wanted to knock some sense into him, really how could he grrr. One day Sera heals someone from the other realm which will have catastrophic repercussions for the twins and their friends Fey and Jonas.
These characters are wonderful I loved Luke, he is the perfect guy and brother. He is so good with Sera,he is patient and kind, and willing to sacrifice for those he loves. Sera is sweet, smart, has an uncanny ability to find trouble, doesn't trust easily, artist, courageous, and a good friend. Fey is gorgeous and the best of the best in the best friend department, she has the twins back and she loves them, I would just say you do not want to get on Fey's bad side, she is awesome. Then there is Jonas, I really liked him he too is beautifully gorgeous, sweet, and a terrible force to be reckoned with if need be. I loved his relationship with the twins, and his willingness to help them, which didn't seem to be in his best interest, which of coarse makes him all the more endearing. There are a few other characters that were amazing, Lilith wow do not want to be alone and in the same room. Okay don't want to be any were near this woman she is intriguing and really scary. The Shadows were Marc's worse nightmare, and quit the evil ones.
Great story, really enjoyed reading it and becoming attached to Luke and Sera can't wait to find out what will happen next.

Like I mentioned above, after reading the prequel to this story, Intuition (which I highly recommend you read first) I just knew it was going to be great, in fact I was super excited to start reading it. I love it when a prequel can do that to you, draw out emotions and make you want to immediately pick up the next book, always a sign of a good author.

And I was not disappointed.

I absolutely adored Sera and Luke. I love the connection they had as not only brother and sister but as twins. How they could read each other and sense what the other was thinking and how they just knew each other. I loved their witty banter and almost sarcastic remarks to each other. You could tell that even while they were making smart quips at one another they still really cared about the other and not only cared but that they were best friends and would do anything for the other. I loved their bond and the protectiveness they both shared.

It seriously made me yearn to have a twin brother something I never thought I would say.

Right away you can tell that there is more to this story than that of a Seer and Healer who happen to be twins. You can tell that there is more going on in the story and that they are not the only ones out their with supernatural powers.

There is an air of mystery right off the bat that draws you into the story and made it almost impossible to put down. In fact I was so glad I started this on a day that I didn't have anything else planned because I know it would have all gotten ignored while I found myself engrossed in the pages of the story.

So what else can I say about this book without giving too much away? Without ruining all of the mystery that slowly unfolds? That is the dilemma I find myself in while writing this review.

A Prophecy from long ago, Vampire Guardians, A Seer, A Healer, Elves, The Shadows, A Mind Reader, The Gifteds.

Gah! It has it all and so much more. I really really enjoyed reading this unique fun story and truly, all of the characters were just fabulous, even the bad guys.

I so look forward to the sequel (and there seriously better be one or I will be crushed!). I have a feeling it is going to be hard waiting for it to come out!

If you enjoy YA and paranormal then this really is a must read.

Also reviewed on my blog Paranormal Book Fan

This book started off slow for me but it really picked up, to the point where I didn't want to put it down. It was intriguing and kept me guessing throughout. I had no idea the direction that this was going to take. I absolutely loved the ending and felt it opened some interesting doors for a second instalment.

Sera and Luke are twins who are gifted. Sera is a healer and Luke is a Seer. Luke has a vision in which he Sees Sera get killed by a woman with red hair. And the worst thing about Luke's visions, they always happen, there's nothing he can do to stop them. Luke can't see anything about himself so he doesn't know that he is also in danger due to a prophecy which mentions them.

Luke and Sera don't mix much with others. They have one best friend, Fey and a kind of acquaintance, Quinn. They believe that no one else around them knows about their powers as they keep them secret. This in turn, keeps them from learning about the powers of others around them. The reader gets some insight into but are also kept in the dark at times which adds intrigue throughout the book. It is completely unpredictable. I don't think I could have fathomed a guess at where this was going to go.

Jonas and Marc are secondary characters who have their own secrets. As does Fey. I really liked Jonas but I couldn't take to Marc at all. Fey was a character who was around a lot throughout the book but yet didn't stand out for me, even though she plays an important part in the story. I don't think her character was defined enough.

The action doesn't peak until the end but it was really enjoyable and well done. This book has vampires, dark elves and light elves as well as a Seer, healer and mind reader.

The author did a fantastic job and I would find very little to fault her on except that I found the changing POV's to be confusing at the start of the book. I got used to it eventually but I think this may have been what slowed down the start of the book for me as it just didn't flow smoothly.

Overall though, I definitely think this is a must read for all paranormal fans out there. I hope that we are going to be seeing a second in the series.

What a mind blowing read! I thoroughly loved this story! I so want book 2 now. Intangible was a breath of fresh air in a genre that is getting a lot of wear. It starts with Luke and Sera, twins with special powers, who don’t know just how special they are. Sera can heal and Luke can see the future. But when one of Luke’s visions is about his sister, will he be able to change the future?
Sera finds herself breaking one of her personal rules and falling in love with Marc, a mysterious stranger who appears out of nowhere but seems to be a kindred spirit. But will Marc, who is also secretly gifted, break her heart? What does Lilith, the vampire queen want with them? The twins get thrown into a world where vampires, fairies and what not actually do exist! Oh my..

Fantastic story! It was told from several point of views, which I enjoyed. The rotation of minds to ride along with kept it very intriguing. Luke, Sera and Marc are equally fascinating in their own ways. Sera is kind and her need to heal people drives her to do things she probably shouldn’t. We see her begin to question what she is and if her healing is righteous or dangerous. Luke is the protector and seer, always wanting to shelter his sister. He suffers from horrid visions that he feels he can’t change no matter what. His evolution was amazing to watch as he gets stronger and realizes that fate is not concrete. Marc’s character was my favorite. A tortured soul of sorts, tormented by his ability to hear voices, everyone’s voices, all around him. It nags him to the point of extreme headache pains. His quest for release becomes entangled in Sera’s and Luke’s and brings him to the darkest of all places. Another main character, who’s point of view we do not get to see, is Fey, the mysterious Elve who has taken it upon herself to protect Luke and Sera from the supernatural world and the evil that want’s to destroy them. Loved all their interactions.

I was thoroughly impressed with this story, it was well thought out and flowed smoothly. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

A copy of this book was provided to me by the author for an honest review.

I love reading debut authors. J. Meyers has reminded me why. Intangible is her first novel and she did such an amazing job. Another Indie author who has knocked it out of the park. Intangible was well thought out and perfectly executed. I could tell that J. Meyer put a lot of effort, research, and love into this book. Readers are sure to fall in love with Sera and Luke. I know I did.

Sera and Luke have such a fascinating relationship as twins. I have twins, and I hope their bond is as strong (although I doubt they will be paranormal). I loved reading about their struggles with their gifts. I cannot imagine hiding something that is such a big part of who you are from everyone else in the world. They helped each other through it. They have a fun relationship despite all of the stress their gifts cause. Their joking and loving nature was so great to read about.

The many other characters who make up this story's cast were very interesting. I enjoyed Fey, and her protectiveness. Jonas was interesting. His struggle with his humanity was very well written. He turned into one of my favorites in this book. Marc was a different story. I almost wonder where his story will go. I hope we will read about him again. He frustrated me a bit but then, I've never....well lets just say he goes through a lot. Quinn wasn't talked about a whole bunch but I hope his character is more involved later. He seems like a cocky guy who will be fun to read about.

All the paranormal aspects of this book were awesome. There were so many things touched on, such as vampires, elves, and the Gifteds. J. Meyers created a world that could unfold into anything. She created back story and explained a lot about each race. I am excited to see what other Gifteds we will see in the next book and if any more paranormal races will join the series.

This is an amazing YA paranormal novel. A definite must read for anyone who enjoys that genre. There is so much suspense, adventures, some romance, and rescue missions. It was fast paced and fun. I absolutely loved this book and I am excited for the next book in the series. If only it was ready now. The suspense is horrible.

Intangible filled every need I have or want when I read a YA paranormal book!! It has romance... It is suspenseful and gripping..... It has a whole range of supernatural beings.... And above everything else the writing is exceptional!!! And I admit to doing a little happy dance when I realized that the story was told from a few different characters perspectives, because I really love to read a story that is told from the males POV!!!

Intangible is the story of twins Sera, who is a healer and Luke, who sees the future. Luke has a vision of Sera's impending death. And so Luke sets out to change the course of events that he saw in his vision.... There is only one problem though!!! Luke has never been able to change what he has seen in his visions before!!!

The relationship between Sera and Luke was wonderful. They were so caring and protective of each other. But above all else I loved their witty sense of humour. In fact I loved the whole cast of supporting characters!! Marc, Fey, Jonas, Quinn... We didn't really get to learn a whole lot about Quinn so I'm hoping that will change in the next book. But I have to say that it was Jonas who I loved the most!! His character just evolved so much throughout the book. We saw all these little facets of his personality and I loved them all!!

The main romance in the book is between Sera and Marc, but we also got a bit of a glimpse into what could develop between Luke and Fey and I would love to see where that could go. But in the end the author completely surprised me with where she took Sera and Marc. And it was perfectly done that way to fit in with the story and I think I would have been disappointed had it gone any other way!!

The build up of suspense was fantastic and just when you think you've reached the end there is still more to come!!

So to sum it all up, I cannot applaud J. Meyers enough for the utterly fantastic job she has done with Intangible!! What are you waiting for? Get this book today!! You will not be disappointed!!

Sera and Luke are twins who share everything – including their secret abilities. She can heal with a touch and he can see the future. Luke’s visions of the future are always accurate, so when he Sees Sera in a dangerous situation, he grows increasingly concerned. As time ticks by and Luke is unable to change his vision, some surprising allies come forward and the twins discover that they are not the only ones who are more than they seem. With help from their friends, Luke and Sera must find a way to save Sera’s life and defeat a great evil before Luke’s vision comes true.

J. Meyers has created an interesting world, with appealing characters, but unfortunately this does not carry through to the story itself. Intangible has to be one of the slowest moving fantasy novels I’ve read. It seems like the first 200 pages are spent repeating the fact that Luke and Sera are special and many beings are searching for them. Things in the story that felt like they should have been given more weight were glossed over, while other items were repeated endlessly. The characters in Intangible were both likeable and believable, but I was often frustrated by the fact that no one was sharing important information. While I found Luke and Sera to be a bit dull, the secondary characters had an aura of mystery and obvious power that made me eager to know more about them. There isn’t a lot of action in the first part of Intangible, but the intensity increases towards the end of the novel. And the ending did a fantastic job of creating further interest in the series.

Intangible is built upon an interesting concept, but the story didn’t grip me as much as I would have liked. But you really shouldn’t take my word for it… I have yet to find another bad review of this book, and I am definitely in the minority with these feelings.

I admit that lately, I’ve been super-picky with which review requests I actually end up agreeing to, because at the moment I’m right at the end of my Uni course, and I don’t have as much time for reading/reviewing as I normally would. However, when a request for this book came into my inbox, I found myself intrigued – the synopsis really appealed to me, as did the pretty purple cover. Obviously I agreed, and I’m really, really glad I did.

This book, I felt, gave a lot more than the synopsis originally suggested. I thought it was literally going to be about a seer and a healer trying to keep their own secrets. However, this book offers much, much more, with an underground world of vampires, fey and other magical creatures all seamlessly being wound together, complete with their own group politics, and a war waiting to happen.

I ended up really liking the characters in this one. Normally I stay well away from books with twins, but the relationship was tackled really well in this one. Sera and Luke have the stereotypical twin closeness without it seeming cheesey or overdone, and I like the way that Fey is subtly different to ‘normal’ people within the book, though it’s not screamingly obvious from the beginning what role she plays, or what she truly is. The other characters were also done well – I liked Jonas throughout, and Marc was just what the story really needed, I think.

The writing style also worked really well for me in this book – the changes in points of view between characters didn’t feel jerky, and it wasn’t done all too often.

Basically, there was very little to complain about, and I genuinely would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys their paranormal or fantasy books. I’d also like to thank J Meyer for giving me a copy of this to review – I’d have missed out on a fantastic book had I never found it.
