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.
I loved Intangible! I was hooked from the very first page and could not turn the pages fast enough. It was so much more then I was expecting too! I thought it was only going to be about two twins, Luke and Sera and Luke trying to save his sister before it's too late. It is so much more then that! There's ancient prophecies, vampires, shadow people, and fairies. Man, I could not get enough of the awesomeness that is Intangible!

Luke and Sera both have powers. Sera can heal people with her touch and Luke can "See" when bad things are going to happen. The problem with Luke's power is that he is never able to stop the bad thing from happening. So when he sees his sister's death, he becomes very sad and frustrated and refuses to allow it to happen. I loved the brother/sister dynamic between them. They were so close and knew each other so well. They also had some run-on jokes that were adorable.

Now, mix in vampires to the story and I am a very happy girl. Jonas was very interesting. He has been a vampire for 200 years and is Liliths (the mother of all vampires) favorite child, even though he refuses to hurt innocent people. He makes it his mission to protect Luke and Sera from Lilith because they are innocent and do not cause harm to people. I would have liked to know more about Jonas' time before he was a vampire though. All we know is he was a slave.

Marc was also very interesting. Like Luke and Sera he too has powers. He can hear people's thoughts but since it is overwhelming (he can't turn it off) he agrees to help the shadow people get Luke and Sera, who claim they can heal him. I really liked Marc. He was a good guy and really didn't want to hurt anyone but felt like he had no choice. I felt so bad for him and understood his dilemma.

The story is told in multiple POV, and Meyers did a fantastic job creating original and unique voices for every single character. I loved getting into the heads of each one, and I thought it brought so much to the story.
I am not a huge fan of cliffhangers, but this one was fantastically done. I am so excited for the sequel and can not wait to read it!

Meyers has also written a short story called Intuition which is a nice introduction to Luke and Sera. I read it before I started Intangible, and I was happy that I did. Intuition is free for nook and kindle users and I recommend getting yourself a copy!

Seriously, if you are in the market for a FANTASTIC book, then pick up Intangible. You will not be disappointed!
