After I finished Indelible I couldn’t wait to return to the world of the Twixt. It reminded me of a combination between Spirited Away by Hayao Miyazaki and a faerie world. Invisible made all that waiting worthwhile!

Invisible begins with a bang, after the events in Indelible Joy is protected by an edict from the council and the council wants to talk. The problem is Joy is being attacked irregardless of the edict by a knight bent on killing her. It is only with the help of Ink, Inq, and the Balliw

"I'm Mark Carver, but most folks call me Ink." Dyyyyyyying.

So now that I have time to actually review this coherently, I want to fangirl a little.
I LOVE these books. I was given both books one and two for review through NetGalley, and these books are equally incredible. This is such an awesome take on faeries and that entire world, I definitely recommend it if you want something new and original.
These characters are some of the best that I've ever read, Joy is someone I would totally b

Seriously, what is up with sequels nowadays? When did they become more than just set-ups for an epic finale? This is the second sequel I've read in a row and neither suffered from the Second-Book-Syndrome. That's a very good thing, but my poor heart can't take this many feels!

I'll keep this spoiler free for both books, so I'll just go straight to telling you what I liked and disliked. This'll probably be a shorter review than normal. When I read In

First, let me start by saying this book was better than the first. My love for the twixt and ink and even joy, who is my favorite character though she annoys me sometimes (which I will explain later), has grown a million times in Invisible. This wonderful sequel surpassed all my expectations and makes me want more! NOW!! :)

Dawn Metcalf has created an original world that is full of wonderfully scary, weird and imaginative creatures. The Twixt world is one I love to lose myself in often. My copy o

This series is an interesting take on fey and all that encompasses that. It's a solid series so far. The romance between Ink and Joy is refreshing and wonderful; the cast of characters is really vibrate and unique; and there are lots of lessons to be learned and a decent plot.

If you like fey books or want to read something in the fantasy realm that doesn't have a love triangle, give these a shot.

I love this series! This one was just as good, if not a little better than the first book, Indelible. I love fairy stories in general, and this one is very well done. And I love that this was not all about Ink and Joy, either. It was really more of Joy's story.

I think I’m in love with Dawn Metcalf. Honestly, I don’t know where she comes up with these books, but I love them! They have the types of magical creatures that we’re used to from faery books, but then Metcalf adds this whole new layer with the Signaturae, the symbols that connect the human world to the Twixt. I know, it sounds a bit confusing (and it can be a bit in the first book), but I’m in love with the idea a
First off, I'm a fan of this series. Really, I am! But there is a ton of things that I really didn't enjoy. This installment was certainly easier to follow than Book 1, but it still wasn't the smoothest flowing book.

So I'll first share my thoughts on WHAT WENT WRONG:

1. Slow, lingering scenes for pages, and pages, and pages, and...
2. Again, confusing in reasonings for actions/beliefs of Folk.

This is a 2.5 rating, but I rounded it up because I'm nice.

I am utterly on the fence about this book. There were moments that I was just utterly bored out of my mind and there were other parts that I couldn't get enough of. So much of it felt unnecessary and there was a lot of tell, but not nearly enough show. While I understand the importance of making sure that I'm caught up with everything that's going on, OH GOSH did I get tired of reading all the recaps from the last book, supposedly hidden

I want to thank Harlequin Teen for providing me with an ARC of this book to read and give an honest review. Receiving this book for free has in no way altered my opinion or review.

WARNING: If you did not read the first book in this series there may be spoilers here you don't want to know about. So, what are you waiting for? Go back and read #1! If you're looking for an intriguing fantasy, then this one is it!

The world of the Twixt that Dawn Metcalf created in her series is so different, so imaginative, a little bit creepy, but absolutely wonderful. And INVISIBLE returns readers to that magical world, to characters who are unusual, beautiful, bizarre, and whose motives are most often unknown, complex, and potentially sinister.

This second installment in the series picks up a few months after the events in INDELIBLE. While things first appear to have settled down for Joy Malone, it’s a calm that is sho

I received this ARC from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, I was in no way compensated for this review.

Invisible is Dawn Metcalf's second novel in the Twixt series. At least I think it's a series, maybe a trilogy...only time will tell. And just as the first book was this one was equally exciting!

I feel like now I have a better understanding of the Folk world or the Twist as it's called. Things suddenly became more clear to me as I read this one. I was able to understa

Delightfully dark, wonderfully creepy, and adorably romantic, Invisible was an absolutely amazing sequel that was even better than the first. It had twists, turns, and unexpected surprises and it all kept me on the edge of my seat. I was hooked from start to finish and I absolutely loved every bit of it.

Joy continued to grow in this book. Thrown into the world of the Twixt, she had to figure out how to survive. She made mistakes. Mistakes that occasionally made me want to smack her upside the he

I used to do this thing where I'd assign a "snack rating" to books in my reviews....because sometimes reading a book is like eating a bag of potato chips :) If Invisible were a snack, it would be one of my go-to comfort foods: Parmesan Garlic kettle chips.

It's basically Kirsten catnip (only missing some "adult romance" if you know what I mean). Dawn Metcalf does a fabulous job of upping the ante, getting deeper into Joy's world, keeping some of those Ink-and-Joy sensuous scenes where he's learni

I didn't love this one quite as much as the first book. I still really liked it, but there were some slow bits in the beginning. And while I totally understand why Joy did that one thing, I still wanted to hit her over the head with something.

Invisible was sooo good! I can't even begin to tell you all of the feels.

So Invisible picks-up a little after Indelible and Joy has to deal with more problems involving the Twixt. This book had a lot more action; Joy is being hunted by an assassin and no one is safe. Joy, Ink and the rest of the gang has to figure out how to stop the unstoppable in order to save Joy and everyone else.

Some more family stuff is going on with Joy. Joy's brother Stef is back for the summer, Joy and her mom seem to b

When I received the advanced copy in the mail I put aside the other books I was reading so I could read this right away!

I love the main character, Joy, because she is such a brave girl considering how new she is to everything. She just takes things as they come.

I loved the characters Ink and Inq. Ink seems to live the way I would imagine anyone would when brought in and out into the human world. He knows so much, yet he still longs to be

Invisible is the second book of the Twixt series by Dawn Metcalf, and I can assure you, it certainly lived up to its predecessor. It can get very intense at times and I often found myself shouting at the characters. Joy's brother Stef is finally introduced, but Joy's parents play a lesser role than before. At the end of the previous book it seemed like everything was settled and there were no more problems to be straightened out, that is far from the truth.

This is the second book in the Twixt series and this series should be read in order. I think it is important here not just for character development but for world building as well.

I enjoyed most of the book and liked that Joy grows and finds her own inner strength and saves herself rather than relying on others constantly. Her behavior before that frustrated me but at the same time I also can see that it was purposeful to highlight her growth. Still, some of the things she did left me shaking my

An assassin has been hired to kill Joy, and it has become very obvious that surviving with Sight is becoming harder and harder. Can she keep her heart in tact while also keeping her new status she's found in the Twixt?

My thoughts: From the moment I slipped into this second book, it was like I was cuddling in my favorite PJ's! I just love these characters and everything about their wild world they live in.

Ink and Joy were just as lush and velvet-like as a couple as I remember them from before. P

Once again, it was a great reading!
The story is really catchy and so full of mysteries all the time.
Although Joy was kind of annoying on this book, because she was so stubborn and even selfish, but atleast, she come to her sense, in the end.
I think the dialogs between her and her dad and her best friend, Monica, too forced!
So, when they show up in the book, it's always boring.
I love how Joy and Ink's relationship unrolls. They discovering the feelings and discovering each other.

Wow! That ending! When does the next book come out?!

OK, I guess I should back track.
This book starts out at a run with some serious action. Joy continues to grow and while she sometimes annoyed me, I could appreciate it because she felt like a real teenager to me (and honestly teenagers can be annoying sometimes). I was absolutely smitten by Ink's development, but I loved that he managed to still be true to his scribe/folk-ness.

Joy has everything she could possibly want, but all of that changes when an unstoppable assassin is hired to kill her. The sight comes with a price. Joy can either leave the Twixt forever, or stay and fight for the life that she has created for herself with them.

I love the way that this series portrays the Fae. I have read many books with fae creatures, and this is among my favorites. These fae can be cold, emotionless, and self centered, but at the same time feel incredibly human and experience

I love the world of the Twixt. LOVE it! And I was so excited to go back there with Joy and Ink and the rest of this very interesting cast of characters. This particular book was, I felt, more Joy's story than anyone else. She sort of comes into her own, makes her own mistakes and triumphs, and I was definitely thrown at the end of the book when it's revealed how she has the Sight and is able to wield the scalpel that Ink gave her. Although it makes perfect sense, it was still a surprise to me. I ...more
