Review: Intangible

 Intangible by J. Meyers

*Review copy received from the author.

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 was a refreshing read for two reasons. First, there are different POVs, which makes the story more interesting, complex, and just better. Second, it focuses on twins! Don't worry, there is some romance, too. :) But it is so good to read about the importance of your own blood. To see how the siblings genuinely care about each other it's not only nice, but it makes this paranormal YA different and unusual, and that is a good thing! :)

The main characters are likeable, goodhearted people and other creatures.
Sera, the first twin, has a real problem with accepting who she really is, even in the end of the book. That is kind of sad, but on the other hand there are some circumstances, which make you realize you can't really blame her for that. Oh well, there is a long path in front of her.
Luke, the other twin, is more comfortable about who he is, even though his gift (or curse) is giving him real hard times.
My favourite character is without doubt Marc, because he is quite ambiguous and I always love that! Other characters sometimes felt too "good" or too "bad".

I hope there is going to be more trips to the Realm in the second book, as I would love to learn more about it! :)
I can't really say I totally loved it, but it was an enjoyable and unusual read. If you are a YA fan, don't hesitate, go read it! :)

How unique for a YA novel to focus on the relationship between twins, or even just siblings. Most do play up the romance is the most important relatiohsip.

Exactly and that's sometimes almost boring :)

Interesting! So nice to see something that isn't all "so and so was a normal girl until she met badboy so and so.." hehe :)
