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. ~ Courtesy of Goodreads


Intangible by J. Meyers is a riveting paranormal story about two twins, Luke and Sera. They both have a unique ability that they call their wonder twin powers. Sera has the ability to heal people. She can heal an injury or illness or simply make a person feel better about themselves, all with just a touch of her hand. Luke's power is to see the future. But once seen, nothing can be done to change the future. Luke has tried many times, but nothing ever works. So what happens when Luke has a vision and Sees his twin sister's death?

There are so many awesome things about Intangible. Luke and Sera's relationship is probably my favorite. I love reading about deep connections between siblings and they both have such love and concern for each other, it's very sweet to read about. I also love all of the different paranormal elements and myths that Meyers managed to weave into the story. It made Intangible so much fun to read because I never knew what was going to pop up next!

One of my favorite characters in Intangible is Jonas. He's vaguely Blade-looking. Dark-skinned, short hair, goatee, long leather jacket. As if the description of his looks didn't scream vampire already, his feeding on a man terrorizing a woman in an alley does. My favorite line comes from that scene, right as we first meet Jonas.

As the flames returned to his eyes, two of his teeth elongated, coming to sharp points. The guy's eyes widened at the sight. 
'Yes, that's right.' Jonas lowered him down the wall to lean in close to his face. 'I am exactly what you think I am.                                                                                              
                                                            {Intangible, Chapter 3}
One of my only issues was that there were many characters and multiple points-of-view in Intangible. I don't mind POV's switching from time to time between two or sometimes three characters, but there were so many different POV's I didn't have a chance to get settled into one before the chapter ended and a new character took over narration. I can't say that the style didn't work for Intangible, because I think it did help tell the story, it's just not my personal preference. Also I felt that it slowed the pacing of the story down a little.

Overall, I really enjoyed Intangible. It's got so much going on, but it all ties into Luke and Sera's adventure. If you like paranormal romance and urban fantasy, you'll like Intangible. Also be sure to check out the prequel novella, Intuition, free on Amazon HERE. And our review of it HERE.

  3. This is the first time that I have heard of this book and it sounds really interesting! Definitely going to add it to my TBR list. I hope the multiple POVs doesn't ruin the book. Great review!
