Imaginable (Intangible #2)
by J. Meyers
Summary: 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.
Source: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I loved Imaginable! It was an incredible sequel that had me on the edge of my seat as the twins found themselves in danger once again due to their amazing abilities. Sera found that her healing had consequences for some creatures and Luke was stuck figuring out how he could alter the future again and possibly control his visions. The twins relied heavily on their friend, Fey, an elf who was in charge of protecting them. Because the events happened so quickly in book 1 and they found out so many creatures existed and were their friends, I felt like the characters were getting used to their strange new lives in the beginning of book 2.
The book isn’t written in first person, so the perspectives jump around to all of the major characters and I loved this aspect because I get to know all of the characters better rather than just getting to know one really well. All of them have their own internal conflicts that I get to understand as the reader. It was especially interesting because as Luke and Fey attempt another rescue of Sera, I got to read see the rescue happen from Luke’s perspective while also getting Sera’s perspective from the room she was held in. I just loved the suspense of moments like that.
Jonas was still my favorite character and I was happy to see him in various parts of the book. While I feel like I never get enough of his presence, he was a big help with his inside knowledge of the enemy in Imaginable and his own cunning abilities. While vampires and elves don’t typically associate in the world of the Intangible series, Jonas and Fey both take responsibility for protecting the twins and have an understanding between them and get along quite well. Thorn, another elf and friend of Fey’s, arrived aided Luke in finding Sera and I loved the added dynamic of distrust between him and Jonas. The relationships between all the supernatural creatures are distinct in the series and each type of creature tended to stick to their own kind. I love how the twins shake things up and blur the lines a little.
I never like to give too much of the plot away and I knew nothing when reading aside from knowing it was the sequel to Intangible. The conflict was a result of Sera’s healing abilities she demonstrated in book #1, but the enemy wasn’t the same at all. I don’t want to give much more than that away because I loved how the plot stacks up with the previous book and grows from there. The twins learned a lot about themselves, the world around them, and found themselves in some pretty terrifying situations that didn’t always work out so well.
I love the characters and the relationships between them. Both of the twins had their own moments of romantic connections with the characters that interested them and I loved watching both of them struggle with their feelings.
Imaginable is a wonderful sequel to book 1 of the Intangible series, full of adventure, magic, conflict, family, and love. It’s one of my favorite YA paranormal series and I can’t wait for more. I highly recommend the series, especially to people who enjoy paranormal aspects but are tired of the same old creatures and conflicts. The Intangible series combines a few paranormal elements, but in unique ways that make it refreshing.
