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 was an entertaining, quick-paced young adult novel that is a great choice for all of you who love the paranormal genre.

The idea of twin characters is always interesting. If it’s handled well, the characters become foils for each other, if not, then they turn into caricatures of “opposites”. Luke and Sera balance each other well. Their relationship is handled well, the author showing us rather than telling us, how much they care for one another. The other characters are a bit on the thin side when it comes to characterization. I would have like to have read a bit more about Fey, and definitely more about Marc.

I am truly grateful that there is not case of insta-love. That can break a book for me, but in this one, the romantic relationship is done with more finesse than I’m used to seeing in young adult books recently.

This was definitely a fun one to read. The plot was different enough so that I didn’t feel like I’ve read it before and there were many little twists that keep the reader guessing. I do recommend this to all young adults or lovers of this genre.
