Intuition: A Bonus INTANGIBLE Short Story

Luke and his twin sister Sera have unusual abilities. Hers is a gift—she can heal with a touch of her hand. His is a curse—he can see the future but he can’t do anything about it.

On a hike up the mountain, Luke has a vision unlike any other—one that leaves him terrified. Knowing that it will come true—and that he must do everything in his power to stop it—leaves his own future uncertain.

Don't miss the first book in the series, INTANGIBLE, on sale January 2012.


This is a short story or prequel before the first book. We get to know the two twins Luke and Sera. They both have unusual gifts, Luke can See visions of the future and Sera can heal people. The twins make a walk in the mountain and we get to see both their gifts in action. We get a sense of how close they are and who they are. The story ends when Luke realises that his last vision is a bad one involving Sera, but he never has been able to stop his visions from happening.

It is a nice prequel and we get to know both of them but it is so short that you still don't get a real sense of the book. It did make me curious about the first book and I will definitely be reading it. It sounds like an original story and I love original stories. I think it is a nice story to read before the first book, because we already get to know the two main characters a bit.

From Goodreads:
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 got this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I really liked this book. I was a bit surprised by how much I ended up liking this book. Intangible is a very original and intriguing story. The story is about the twins Sera and Luke, they both have special powers. Sera can heal people and Luke can see the future. The book starts when Luke get's a vision of Sera dying and his visions are never wrong. Contrary to what the blurb suggests these is more to the book that just Luke trying to prevent his vision from happening. Many things are happening and we are introduced to a very interesting world with many interesting characters. I am not going to spoil anything about the storyline, because I liked the surprise. The book was very different from what I expected.

The story is really good, it kept my attention and when I was not reading the book I kept thinking about it. I wanted to know what would happen and I just wanted to keep reading. This book certainly has that keep-reading feel. There were some parts that were a bit slow but I really liked the story. It was original and intriguing.

The characters were really great. I had the feeling I really got to know them. Especially Sera, I really liked her and we get to know many of her feelings and ever what her hobbies are. I really liked her. On the contrary I would've liked a bit more information about Luke. Where the short story is told from his perspective, this is mostly told from Sera's perspective.
This brings me to another point, this story is told from multiple perspectives. I always like is when stories are told from multiple perspectives, because we get to know more characters and why they act a certain way. It gives the story more depth and I really liked it. Every character has his secrets, but die to the multiple perspectives the reader does get a sense of who everyone is and why they act like they do. I think the characters are certainly one of the strong points of the book and I really liked getting to know them all. The main point of the multiple perspectives is that at the beginning it always takes some getting used to.

There were only some minor points that bothered me about the story. I found some of the action quite strange. There are some battles, but I found that some people just won a bit too easy and this wasn't believable. Also I think it was strange that when one of the characters holds a knife for the first time she is immediately able to deal damage with it, I think fighting is something you must learn and the first time you use a weapon it isn't that easy. I also found the ending a bit strange, I expected more of it. More I wont say because I don't want to spoil the anything. There are many questions left unanswered by this book, but I am sure we get most of those answers in the next book.

To Conclude:
I really liked this book. The story was great and I just wanted to keep reading. I also really like the characters and the multiple perspectives which gave us an idea of who everyone was. There were some small minor details I didn't like but overall this was a great books and I really want to read the next book.
