Intangible by J. Meyers

"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."


This book was definitely different from what I was expecting, and that isn't a bad thing. We're tossed into a fearful scene from the beginning and end up having to work our way backwards. 

Meyers creates a supernatural world that is easy to get lost in even if at times a little far-fetched. Sera and Luke Raine are a pair that you're able to easily care for in a short amount of time. Both main characters are kind-hearted individuals. Luke is definitely the standout character between the two as he takes on the responsibility to change the visions he sees. Even through his troubled visions, he's always a light-hearted character. Overall, both main characters immediately pull a reader into their lives where you want to know more. We're also introduced to a number of side characters as the story unfolds. Fey, the best friend, is a fiercely loyal character who has secrets of her own. Jonas was probably the most interesting side character of all as a vampire. What I liked most about the side characters were that the reader was left to decide who was seen as good and bad. Marc was the only character who fell short for me throughout the book. His characterization was good, but I don't feel he added a lot to the actual story.

The story is told through a number of character views which really helps bring the supernatural world together. With all the different powers throughout the book, character are given a chance to be the center of attention. The multiple point of views do get a little confusing at times when trying to figure out whose head you're in, but with all the different personalities it's still enjoyable. 

The overall story is a refreshing take on supernatural powers. Though the pacing could use a little work at times, I was always intrigued to find out what would happen next. The conclusion does give closure to the main story, but it also introduces aspects for the story to possibly continue. If you're looking for a change from usual YA, Intangible is definitely worth a read.
