Review of Imaginable by J. Meyers and INT giveaway!

Imaginable (Intangible, #2) Goodreads Book Description: Twins Sera and Luke Raine’s unusual abilities are growing. Sera is healing vampires now, making them human again. And, at times, Luke can actually change the future he Sees.

But Sera’s healing has dangerous consequences, and though Luke is altering the outcome of more visions, he can’t control them yet.

Now Sera is in danger as the dark creatures of the Realm seek to use her. As Luke struggles to master his gift in order to save his sister, he discovers even more about his powers.

And what he learns just may put him in greater danger than Sera has ever been.


My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

My Review: I have been waiting eagerly for the followup to Intangible, which was one of my favorite reads last year. J. Meyers graciously offered me an ARC in exchange for a review. It did not disappoint. This review will have some mild spoilers from the first book (no more than the plot summary from Goodreads does).

Imaginable by J. Meyers takes place right after the events of the first book, Intangible. We return to our favorite twins, Luke and Sera, as they figure out more of their powers (seeing the future and healing, respectively), and work with Jonas, the vampire, and Fey, their best friend who is a powerful Light Elf, to navigate the new waters of paranormal politics. At the end of the last book, Sera has realized that she can change vampires back into humans. This leads to more vampires clamoring for this power, and Sera's life is at risk. The two twins are thrust into more danger than they've ever been in before.

I absolutely loved this book. The action starts on page one and never lets up the whole time. I frantically flipped through the pages to figure out what happened. The characters are just awesome and so different-- Jonas is still one of my favorite characters (and I love that he got his own novella, which I also loved!) and Fey is fascinating and powerful. The twins are great as well, and I loved learning more about their powers as they did. The background and fantastical creatures are all interwoven in a new way that I haven't seen before. The prose is clear and seamless as we shift from different points of view-- something that I normally dislike, but Meyers does a masterful job of transitioning from character to character, and I didn't even notice it was happening!

Overall, a smashing followup to the first novel, and I'll be bugging Meyers to send me the third as soon as it is done. You should all get your hands on this book, pronto, and Meyers continues to be one of my all time favorite indie writers.

  16. This book sounds great! I haven't read many books where a big part of it centers around two siblings...It's usually just about a romance or something. This should be interesting to see what it's about. :)
