Book Review: 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.

I wasn't sure what to think about Intangible at first.  What initially drew me in was the relationship between Sera and Luke.  I love reading about twins, and loved that they had such a close, positive relationship.  Intangible was a little bit of a slow starter for me, but I kept reading because I was interested in the story.  I had to know more about Luke's vision.  Was Sera going to die?  If so, how and why?  And if Luke was able to stop the vision from coming true, how would he do it?  These were the questions that I had to know the answers to.

What started out as a story about twins with special gifts soon evolved into a true paranormal fiction novel.  I liked the inclusion of the other paranormal creatures, and thought they added a lot of depth to the story.  I loved the treatment of the vampires, and the mystery surrounding Lilith.  The characterization of Lilith was perfectly done, and her scenes were some of my favorite (even though she was a horrendously evil character).

There were a couple of things that surprised me while reading Intangible.  Marc's decision at the end was a surprise, although it was not totally out of character, when you think about what kind of person he truly was.  At the very end of the book, there is a scene were Sera and Luke find out about other gifted people.  It seemed to be setting up book two, and while I usually don't mind that, this scene felt like it belonged in a teaser for book two  I like a lot of closure in series novels, and that last scene left me feeling mildly unsatisfied.

Overall, though, I enjoyed Intangible.  I liked the characters, the character development, the writing style, and the plot.  I loved the way Meyers writes with emotion---her characters' feelings literally jump off the page.  I love that!  This was my first time reading J Meyers and I will definitely be back for more. 


  1. Great review! I love reading about twins too and I really liked Luke and Sara.

  2. I feel like the relationship between Luke and Sera (love her full name; Seraphina) was very heart warming and took the place of a love story which isn't really predominantly present for any of the characters. Anyway great review and i love this website! Keep writing please!

  3. The book was well written with exciting climaxes and laugh out loud humor. The characters were well developed and easily visualized. The twists and turns in the plot were fresh and unpredictable. I look forward to hearing more about Luke, Sera, Fey, Jonas and Marc and am anxious for future books!
