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.

Before anything else, let me profess my love for the characters in this story. I'm a very character driven person, and J. Meyers writes some great ones in Intangible. Sera and Luke are awesome main characters and genuinely act like teenagers. Go figure, right? Luke was probably my favorite character! Extremely caring, he has a great sense of humor and is as selfless as they come. Even when a curve ball is thrown his way in the story he takes it with the utmost grace. It's honestly hard not to fall in love with him. Sera holds her own too though. She exudes friendliness, and kindness.

Although Sera and Luke pretty much steal the show, there are also a few other great characters in the story. Jonas, for example, a 200-year old vampire vampire and former slave. His personality really comes through in the story, and a lot of his history is revealed as you read. I actually hope to see more of him later on in the series. Fey and Quinn, Sera and Luke's friends, are also present here. They don't get quite as much face time as Jonas, but they are great in their own right. 

Plot wise, the book flows beautifully. Not too fast or slow, J. Meyers allows readers to pick up just enough clues to slowly put together the bigger picture. What I enjoyed most was that every time I had a question, it was answered a few pages afterwards. It's almost like Meyers could see inside my head. Like she knew what I wanted to know more about. The ending was a bit hurried, but it wraps up with just enough of a cliffhanger to make you want to keep reading the series.

Favorite thing about Intangible? Hands down, the fact that it mashes together so many different mythologies. Whether you like vampires, elves or gifted humans, you'll find something to love in this book. Add in a secret realm and a lost prophecy, and you have a book that is a quick read! From page one I was immersed in the story. Unique and beautiful, Intangible is definitely a book to add to your reading list.
