Review: Imaginable by J. Meyers

Series: Intangible 2
Format: Digital
Chapters 1 & 2
Release Date: April 16, 2013

Publisher: Self-published
Source: Author
Genre: Young Adult - Fantasy
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.

J. Meyers, thank you! IMAGINABLE was the perfect Thursday afternoon companion with Sera and Luke complementing the perfect Summer weather. I spent the day in our little porch with the birds singing and the trees dancing with the wind, it was so easy for me to pretend I was in the Realm with the Light Elves with your vivid and succinct descriptions and nail biting action. 

IMAGINABLE is the second book in J. Meyers' delectable Intangible series. At 342 pages, this novel read like a novella. The pacing was fantastic, the dialogue witty and the world building just keeps getting better and better. When I read Intangible last year, I felt like the story was more focused on Sera Raine than on her twin, Luke. I'm happy that J. Meyers' fixed that as IMAGINABLE is equally Luke and Sera's story now. I'm actually partial to Luke, he's funny, a little clueless and very protective of Sera and most definitely loyal to his friends. So I'm pleased that we get to know him better in this installment plus his growing infatuation with Fey is so adorable I want to squeeze them both!

The world building is wonderful. The Realm is a place I wish I could visit and J. Meyers really gave us more details as far as her myth is concerned like how the Light and Dark Elves came to be, how the vampires are similar and yet unique from the other vampires we've read before and really the role Luke and Sera are playing in this chess game. My favorite part has to be when The Good Mother Keren gave her memories to the twins and Luke and Sera finally get to see and remember what their parents and brothers looked like before they were killed by Lilith and her vampires. It was so poignant and it resounded because Luke and Sera's parents were killed when they were babies and to finally have something of them is more precious than anything in the world. 

The conflict-resolution was heart pounding as both the vampires and Dark Elves wants Sera now for her healing capabilities. Aside from being able to turn vampires back to human with their superhuman powers intact, Sera can also infuse Dark Elves with Light enabling them to be of equal if not more superior than the Light Elves. At the same time, Luke's powers are growing too, aside from the gift of Seeing, he can also alter said visions. These two are a dangerous and powerful pair and from the looks of it, I think they'll soon find themselves backed into a wall with only each other to trust and turn to.

IMAGINABLE didn't suffer the dreaded filler or sequel curse. If any I'd say it's even better than Intangible. Luke and Sera's character development is consistent as well as the secondary characters. I love how every aspect of the book is moving in the same pace, each personality distinct and the build-up with regards to the conflict is steadily rising. I also love how J. Meyers isn't afraid to sacrifice her characters and their safety for the sake of keeping things happy and light. In short, someone died and though its heartbreaking, its expected. I love authors who aren't afraid of cutting off her cast.

I'm very with my Young Adult reads lately so when I pick up one, I really expect it to be GOOD. IMAGINABLE... scratch that... J. Meyers' Intangible series is a MUST if you love YA. I promise you won't be disappointed!

A Few Random Facts

1. I used to be a singer and actress. In fact, I was in an independent film called “Mud Season” that was filmed in Vermont. I played Agent Murphy. And I was an extra in a film and TV show when I lived in NYC, though I don’t think you could see me in them. Being an extra in the film was terrible. Looooooong days and every time they wanted us to get in place they’d say, “Okay, Background come in,” like we were live sets. Which I suppose we were. But still. I didn’t appreciate being referred to as “background.”

2. I love to vacuum out the car. Strange, but true. (I don’t do it very often, but I do really like to do it. It’s very satisfying.)

3. I drink tea all day long.

4. I’m a vegetarian.

5. I have four children who are the most amazing people I’ve ever known. I am the luckiest person alive to have these people in my life.

6. I knit. Sweaters are my favorite things to knit, but I’ve made lots of hats for my kids and their cousins. In fact, last year I made 11 hats because each of the cousins got a hat for Christmas.

7. Sometimes I draw portraits in pencil. Usually of my kids or other people’s kids.

8. We don’t have TV. We have a television on which we watch movies, but we don’t actually get TV programming because we live too far out to get cable. I love not having commercials interrupt what I’m watching. I don’t ever want TV again.

9. I love the fresh smell of clean laundry that has dried outside on the line.

10. I think a baby laughing is the happiest sound on Earth.

    1. I think you'll enjoy the series, the twins are very much like Rick Riordan and Michael Scott's sibling heroes only more young adult than juvenile.

  3. I read part of the first book last year, and just wasn't in the right frame to read it. This book has been receiving a lot of positive reviews, so maybe I'll go back and try again.
    Great review!

    1. When I read this last year, I was also in a slump. Like I can't read YA, they all seemed boring to me. For some reason Imaginable caught my attention and had me glued.
