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.

My Review:
Intangible was a wonderful, entertaining read! J. Meyers took a world of mythical beings and provided the reader with a suspenseful ride through an exquisitely written tale. 

Let me introduce you to the main characters. First we have the twins, Sera and Luke Raine. They aren't like your usual twins, they get along and always know when something is bothering the other. Sera can heal people. Luke sees the future. Sera is selfless, witty, intelligent, and rarely does anything to serve her own purpose. Luke is caring, a great shoulder to lean on, and he is protective of his sister. Then we have Fey, Sera and Luke's best friend. She is sly, helpful, and down to earth. Next is Marc, the mysterious new guy in town who needs to figure out where his loyalties lie. Finally we have Jonas. Fey has known him for a long time and doesn't trust him, but to Sera and Luke, he is mysterious and creepy.

What I liked most about this book was that it wasn't your everyday, run of the mill paranormal read. Usually we only find vampires and werewolves matched together, but Intangible brings elves, vampires and gifted humans to the table. I found this to be very refreshing and a much appreciated break from the norm.  

I really enjoyed the flow of this book. The point of view changes throughout the story and I found this to be really helpful with character development. Normally, I don't see siblings getting along in real life, let alone in books, but Sera and Luke's relationship was very believable and you could see how in sync they were with each other. The change in point of view also helps to fill the reader in on the motivation behind each characters actions. I questioned Jonas and Fey's actions on occasion, but their reasoning was later revealed and everything fell into place.

I highly recommend this book to all paranormal/fantasy fans. This was an enjoyable read and I am eager to read what J. Meyers has in store for us next.
