Intangible by J. Meyers

ABOUT THE BOOK

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 THOUGHTS

I’m very torn about this book. There were parts throughout the book that caused me to stop reading for a while because I was bored out of my mind. Then, there were the parts that were so good it made me want to jump for joy. Very few books elicit that kind of response from me. I can’t recall the last book I read where my opinion seemed to change with each page.

The overall plot of this novel was OK. I think my problem was that it wasn’t always executed in the best way. When I started this book, I was hoping for a gripping, unique story. I’m not saying that it wasn’t unique, because it was. It just wasn’t always gripping. J. Meyers wrote a story that will pull you in and will make you not want to put the book down for the life of you. She also wrote a story that will have you hoping the book will end soon. It’s almost like it was two different books: An extremely interesting, captivating novel, and then another boring, never-ending one. Despite the parts of the book that were slow, I think my eagerness to find out how the novel will end mostly made up for it.

Most of the characters were enjoyable in their own way. Sera was probably my favorite. I liked how she wasn’t perfect. She had her issues and I found that realistic. The only character that I couldn’t stand was Marc. He just irked me to no end. I think this story would be best read in moderation. If you read a few chapters at a time, I think you would enjoy it a lot more.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
