The creative storyline is fabulous and the characters are very believable and likeable. The prequel teaser, Intuition, was truly only that ...a teaser and there is so much more to Intangible. I really enjoyed that the story changed perspective so that the reader can experience Sera's view and then change to see the events from another character's view.
The book was well written with exciting climaxes and laugh out loud humor. The characters were well developed and easily visualized. The twists and turns in the plot were fresh and unpredictable. I look forward to hearing more about Luke, Sera, Fey, Jonas and Marc and am anxious for future books!

I was lucky enough to receive this book pre-release from the author. I found a companion short story called Intuition that takes place before Intangible, maybe by a couple weeks or months. You can read it around online for free.
This book starts off with Luke as he has a vision of his twin sister Sera’s death. He’s had visions all his life and he’s never been able to change the outcome of these visions. His sister, Sera, has the ability to heal people, but there’s no way to heal herself.
This story starts with mystery and fantasy and quickly incorporates drama and romance. The author weaves in various narratives from interesting characters. The twins, Luke and Sera; Marc who’s gotten himself into some trouble; a powerful vampire named Jonas. I found myself rooting for and enjoying each character, even those who were more ambivalent than others. Towards the middle, I may have gotten a little impatient, eager to see how Luke’s vision would play out, but the pacing was pretty spot on.
I enjoyed the romance in the story. Marc and Sera had a good thing going on, even with their ups and downs. But I would really like some more Luke and Fey! I’d just like some more Luke in general.
The ending was awesome -- the climax wasn’t resolved too quick. Just when you think it’s solved, something happens again. The author plans for a sequel, and I’m really excited! I want to see these characters again and I’m eager to see who else she pulls along for the ride. This was a great read, so check it out!

I am a forty something mom of a teenage girl, so I read a lot of what she reads, but I do enjoy the paranormal YA genre. I really enjoyed this book. The character development really let me feel like I knew the characters personally. I grew to care about each of them. The visual imagery was very striking and I can picture each of them clearly. Due to my schedule,it took me a week to finish it, but I often found myself wondering what was going to happen because it was not at all predictable. And there is plenty of room for a couple more books, so I'm looking forward to what the twins do next!. If you're looking for a compelling YA book, definitely add this to your To Read list.

J. Meyers does a wonderful job crafting her novel. If you like an active plot, interesting characters, and a story that steadily builds to its' conclusion, this book's for you. I am especially impressed with Ms. Meyers' ability to tell her story from the viewpoints of several different characters and do it well - so often this technique can be distracting, but it's well done here. While the conclusion is satisfying, it screams series - there's much more to be revealed in the world of her characters - and I'm truly glad for it. I look forward to the next book!

If you read Intuition, the beginning of this book comes as no shock. There is one major difference between this version and the one in Intuition, aside from the difference in location, is that this time the vision is longer and in far more detail.
J.Meyers' writing flows like a sweet symphony. I wondered as I read if she's even aware of the story she's unfolded upon the masses. The story seemingly wrote itself in its fluency using Meyers as a vessal to make itself known. Intuition and Indomitable only give a mere taste, a tease of the abilities this author has.
I fell in love with the two shots.. even if I read Indomitable out of order. (for those that don't know Indomitable, Jonas' story, it technically 1.5 coming in between Intangible and Imaginable) You'll cheat yourself of the introduction to Jonas in Intangible reading it first.
Anyway, Meyers writes in a way that's rarely seen this day in age. The words flow through your mind and you soon forget that you're even reading a book as the words come alive frame by frame in your mind's eye and suddenly you're the characters.
I love how indomitable and intangible flow so well together! the same chapter from two different points of view. It was amazingly done as well! Jonas seems to be a stranger to those who read indomitable before this book. Just as Sera and Feyth were seemingly strangers to the reader even if they'd read intangible first.
That's an amazing gift few authors have. to take the same scene and make it seem all brand new. Kudos J!!
I give this book 5 of 5 paws

Intangible by J Meyers is the first book in the Intangible Series with a combination of YA and Paranormal. The storyline is awesome and is a very interesting read from the beginning.
Luke and Sera Raine are seventeen year old twins born with special abilities. Luke is a Seer, who sees the future and Sera is a Healer, who heals humans by touching them. Growing up, they had to keep their abilities a secret from the world. Luke and Sera are very protective of each other and will do whatever to keep each other safe. Well one day, Luke has a vision and has to figure out how to keep it from happening. Will he be able to prevent what ever it is from happening in time?
Luke and Sera’s friend, Fey, has been in their lives for a very long time but what they don’t know is that Fey has a secret of her own. Fey is a beautiful girl who is different and has her own special ability. She is very protective of the twins and has always been there for them growing up. Will Luke and Sera ever find out what her secret is?
One day, Sera used her healing ability on an injured person. She didn’t think that she was doing anything wrong but she didn’t realize that someone had seen what she did. Has Sera just put herself in danger?
Luke, Sera and Fey’s journey has begun. They will go through a lot together. The twins will find out that there are paranormal things and people in this world that they did not know exist and about their group of friends. How will the twins react to the things they find out? They will find themselves in dangerous situations where Fey is there to help them out. Will they be able to do what they need to do to survive? They will encounter two mysterious men. One of them is a stranger from out of town who suddenly shows up in their hometown. The other man is a local resident and they both have their own reasons of why they are after the twins. Who are they? What do they want? Can Luke and Sera trust these men?
Through out the whole book, I felt like I was right there with Fey and the twins, Luke and Sera on their journey. I can feel the different emotions that each of them have with each other and with other people.
J Meyers has done an amazing job writing Intangible. It is very well written and I definitely recommend my friends to read it. Now I am off to read Imaginable, book two in the Intangible Series.

I’m not going to hold anything back here, I’m just going to smack you in the face with it as hard as I can — Intangible is a paranormal book lovers wet dream! If you have not read this book, don’t waste one more minute. Stop whatever you are doing… well, actually, you are reading my review so don’t stop yet, but when you are done… start reading this book. Throngs of the gruesome undead could take over the planet at any given moment and you would have missed out on consuming this brilliant novel because you decided to simply add it to your TBR list for later. Don’t make that mistake, make it the next book you read.
I read a few reviews back when I first added this to my TBR list, as I always do when contemplating a new book. I remember most of them being excellent, which made me a very happy, hopeful girl. But one review really stuck out in my mind; a reader wasn’t able to finish the book because there were too many POVs and was unable to keep it all straight. To each their own opinion, and I completely understand that not everyone is going to like everything, but I feel an overwhelming compulsion to counter that statement in my own review. In my opinion, Meyers could not have made it any clearer which character’s mind you were sharing, or whose pair of eyes you were witnessing this world through. It was unique, not to mention holy freaking impressive, to experience this journey through so many different characters.
Here is the bait…
"And then Sera knew. No vision had ever terrified Luke. Never. In seventeen years. It was as if his own life were at stake. But he didn’t See his own future. He only saw other’s. She suddenly had a terrible feeling that she knew exactly whose future he’d Seen. Her voice was a whisper. “Do I get hurt?” His face contorted, but he didn’t say anything. “Oh my god. Do I die?”
J. Meyers — Intangible
… and that’s all it took to set the hook. And trust me, it only escalates from that point. Twins with supernatural powers? Hells, yes! Wonder Twins Powers... activate!
Meyers successfully created a world that was easy to become fully immersed in, and by the time it was over I was a full time resident. I adore Sera and Luke’s twin bond. Their character development was so thorough that I felt a special connection to them as well. When they were happy, I could feel it. When they were sad, the box of tissues came out. Maybe I’m an empath? Hah! My best reading experiences happen when I’m not simply comprehending the words on the pages, but am actually transported to another world and existing right along with the characters. I can imagine sharing a “cup of joe” with Sera, Luke, and Marc at Muddy Waters.
I would really love to spill everything that happens right here and now. I am itching to tell you all about the variety of character types, good and bad, but that wouldn’t be very nice of me, would it? Just know that your mind will be properly blown when you realize the amount of paranormal awesomesauce that Meyers has graciously gifted to her readers in this first installment.
I highly recommend Intangible to anyone that loves the paranormal genre and is tired of the same old story. This is a refreshing new tale that will live on in your mind forever. Five stars, without a doubt!

Twins with the special ability to heal and see the future are born, and with them a prophecy that will leave another world in desperation to either kill them or save them.
Luke and Sera always kept their abilities secret, afraid of what the world might thing about them and to be deemed freaks. But no secret can be hidden forever and when Sera accidently heals a vampire female to human the twin’s life turns to chaos.
With the aid of Fey their guardian and friend they were kept hidden and had no knowledge of their prophecy. But can she keep them alive now that the truth is out? Aid comes from a vampire guardian called Jonas, who finds the twins at first a danger to their world. But the more he witnesses their integrity and know that they would be the saviors of his world, the more he becomes protective of them just like Fey.
But with Lilith the mother of all vampires hunting them down, the twins are in great danger. Can Luke save his sister from death? Time is running out and impended doom is approaching.
Luke and Sera was great characters. I loved their playfulness with each other and watch as this spread to other characters. Sera is strong from the beginning, and no matter how much danger she is in she does what her hearts feels is right and help others. Luke’s character was a little more reserved, rather than run into danger he tends to step back and see more. I really loved Fey. Not one for many words she gets the job done, and do not get her mad. Jonas was great too. His “stand my ground” attitude shined out, and when he starts protecting the twins you can see why he is a guardian. He is definitively a character with great integrity and I can’t wait to see more from him. As for Marc, well let’s just say I didn’t expect that of him in the end. Major surprise there.
Mmm this is a hard one to compare to other books. This book has a lot of elements others have but not the exact same, which is great. Beautiful Creatures did pop up, but there was just something all new around this one.
What an absolute fresh and interesting plot and characters. I really enjoyed this book. Yes we do have vampires, but for a change other magical elements overruled them a bit. I loved the plot it’s so exciting and I could not wait to see if Luke’s vision would come true. I was however deeply disappointed in Marc, I mean dude come on. J Meyers has a great writing style and you will smile a lot with all the teasing going around. In short this book was so welcoming that I felt right at home and just could not put it down. I highly recommend this to magical and gifted readers. Really awesome read and I can’t wait to get to book two.
Quote from the book: “Oh! And my evil laugh is going to need some serious work because it’s not very good at all”

What a mind blowing read! I thoroughly loved this story! I so want book 2 now. Intangible was a breath of fresh air in a genre that is getting a lot of wear. It starts with Luke and Sera, twins with special powers, who don't know just how special they are. Sera can heal and Luke can see the future. But when one of Luke's visions is about his sister, will he be able to change the future?
Sera finds herself breaking one of her personal rules and falling in love with Marc, a mysterious stranger who appears out of nowhere but seems to be a kindred spirit. But will Marc, who is also secretly gifted, break her heart? What does Lilith, the vampire queen want with them? The twins get thrown into a world where vampires, fairies and what not actually do exist! Oh my..
Fantastic story! It was told from several point of views, which I enjoyed. The rotation of minds to ride along with kept it very intriguing. Luke, Sera and Marc are equally fascinating in their own ways. Sera is kind and her need to heal people drives her to do things she probably shouldn't. We see her begin to question what she is and if her healing is righteous or dangerous. Luke is the protector and seer, always wanting to shelter his sister. He suffers from horrid visions that he feels he can't change no matter what. His evolution was amazing to watch as he gets stronger and realizes that fate is not concrete. Marc's character was my favorite. A tortured soul of sorts, tormented by his ability to hear voices, everyone's voices, all around him. It nags him to the point of extreme headache pains. His quest for release becomes entangled in Sera's and Luke's and brings him to the darkest of all places. Another main character, who's point of view we do not get to see, is Fey, the mysterious Elve who has taken it upon herself to protect Luke and Sera from the supernatural world and the evil that want's to destroy them. Loved all their interactions.
I was thoroughly impressed with this story, it was well thought out and flowed smoothly. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
A copy of this book was provided to me by the author for an honest review.

Intangible by J. Meyers
Luke and his sister Sera were special; he could see the future and she was able to heal people. Luke had never been able to stop his visions from happening and Sera couldn’t stop herself from healing someone that was badly hurt. Luke had never wanted to stop his visions so much until he had one of Sera dying. Each vision filled him with impending doom. Time was running out, and he still didn’t know how to save her.
Intangible was a refreshing fantasy; it was different than most stuff that is around right now. The story pulled me in, so I didn’t have a problem getting into it. It was also quite cool that it was set in Vermont. I have lived in Maine since 2001, but, before that, I had lived in Vermont since I was born, and I often go back to visit family. It is a ton of fun reading books that are set in places that I know. To me, it makes my reading experience more personal.
The vivid images the author created were fantastic. It was easy for me to get lost in the scenes and pretend I was actually there. The characters were also very relatable and I loved reading about the two main characters, Luke and Sera. I felt like I really got to know them in this story, and, when something happened to them, it felt like it was happening to me.
I really enjoyed the storyline and the magic in the book. I love the world of fantasy and magical powers, especially when the story isn’t just a copy of another with different names and places. For me, Intangible was a new storyline. Yes, relationships will always resemble other relationships, because really - how many different ways can you write romance? I’m okay with that; I love the story just the same, and, as long as the core of the story isn’t overdone and impresses me, I am happy, and that is what this one did.
I recommend Intangible to young adult fantasy readers, or even readers that do not read a lot of fantasy. The story is set in an every day world, so the fantasy aspect is very balanced and not overpowering for people that don’t read a lot of it. I look forward to reading more of J. Meyers's work, and I am anticipating the next installment to this series.
I received this book for review from the author.

“The children of the Prophecy must die”
Sera and Luke are teenaged twins, although they are very different from any other kids you know. They have abilities. Special abilities. Sera can heal and Luke has visions of the future. Very cool!
Sera often heals people without a second thought, which lately is beginning to lead them into some trouble. Especially since Luke is having visions that his sister is killed.
Right away you definitely get a sense of how close these two kids are. They aren’t two teenagers, its more like they are each a half of a whole. I really enjoyed getting to know them, and it was quick and easy to care about them. And then when you meet the other people in their lives, you love them even more.
But the thing about their lives is that there are so many secrets you don’t know what is real. They don’t even know, themselves, how many secrets there are. They’ve always known they were different, but they didn’t realize just how different they actually were. It seems that everyone in the supernatural world is on the hunt for the children of the prophecy. Some want to kill them, some are determined to save them. But it is very difficult to tell who is who at times, which in my opinion, really lent itself to the mystery and excitement of the story.
The first third or so of this story moved kind of slow for me. There was a lot of facts and learning about the different characters going on. And really, it worked because by the second half of the story when the action kicked into high gear I was invested in these people and their friends. But it was really interesting how the twins found allies in unlikely people,while those believed to be trustworthy proved themselves opposite. But such is the way it goes when you deal with so many secrets.
“Shall she be the first to die, Seer?”
The story focused a little bit more on Sera, but it was Luke who caught my eye. I felt he had a bit more of an emotional part in this story. I mean, afterall, he was seeing visions of his other half dying. There are times I just felt so sad for Luke, and his desperation was clear. But then Sera was like this naïve, yet not naïve girl who you just liked. She was friendly and caring, and you don’t want her to get killed.
So does she get killed? That’s a secret!!! Come on, read the story. Meet Luke and Sera, Fey, Marc, Jonas, and Lilith. Who is good and who is evil? Are the vampires or the fairies good or evil? And exactly who are behind the Shadows? It’s not always the answer you think it is.
