The author:
J. Meyers grew up in Vermont and now lives in Central New York. When she’s not reading or writing, she’s chasing her four kids around, exploring the outdoors with them, relishing the few quiet moments she gets with her husband, baking sweet treats, and forgetting to make dinner. Though she cannot actually see the future nor heal with a touch of her hand, she likes to think her children believe she can. Intangible is her first novel.

First sentences:
“Shall she be the first to die, Seer?”

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 opinion:
When I first started reading Intangible I had difficulties getting into it. It took some time for the action to start and even as the story progressed and you as the reader get more information the story felt slow paced for me. I really like the way the story is told though. The characters are loveable and extremely well portrayed, the story per se has an interesting storyline and is so well written that the story felt like a film and not like a book – you know what I mean, right? When you see the story develop before your inner eye for me that is a sign for a well written book.
In the last third of the book the action became so fast paced that I almost couldn’t keep track of them. From this moment on there was no chance to put the book down once and everything and all the suspense that was well build up before came into action, was resolved or left as a cliffhanger.
Intangible is part one of a series and I will definitely check the others out as well.

Intangible is available at Amazon in paperback and for your Kindle too.
