Review: Intangible by J. Meyers - Megan

Synopsis from Goodreads
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.

Intangible proved to be an enchanting read that incorporates various groups of paranormal enitities bound together in a race against death. I was pleasantly surprised once I realised that this was a self-published novel because it soars high above the standard set by most traditionally published authors.

The story is told from multiple POV which helped build the characters' personalities without making the story distracting. The third-person narrative knocked me a little because recently I've been reading a lot of books spoken in the first-person but this isn't an issue that deteriorated the novel's overall quality.

The plot progressed at a steady pace with no unnecessary interruptions from impatient bad guys or idiotic protagonists. The written transition between the characters' viewpoints flowed with pronounced elegance.

Luke and Sera's relationship was portrayed exceptionally well and I was deeply satisfyed with how it went from strength to strength as their journey progressed. Their synchronized personalities in addition with their devotion to each other is heart-warming and projects a realistic connection with the reader.

Each chapter felt like a story of its own and the continuous twists and turns will leave readers gasping between pages. The ending feels like a massive cliffhanger and it will have you begging for book two.
