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. (Photo and synopsis from Goodreads)
Back in the Paranormal Saddle…
As you all know, I LOVE me some YA Sci-Fi, YA Dystopian, stuff like that. And while I’ve enjoyed YA Paranormal in the past, I don’t ever think I’ve been obsessed with it like some people have. But I realized about a month ago that it has been a while since I had read a Paranormal book. So I was excited when I got the chance to read a couple lately. I realized that I really do like the genre a lot more than I thought I did, and I want to read quite a few more. And Imaginable is definitely one of the YA Paranormal books that I would recommend to other readers, even if they don’t love the genre.
Intangible was the first review request I ever received for this blog, and it was a fantastic one to start out with. So I was ecstatic when J. Meyers contacted me, along with several other bloggers, asking if I wanted to read and review Imaginable, the sequel to Intangible. And I really have to say that Imaginable completely lived up to its predecessor.
A Great Follow-Up…
Imaginable was full of action and suspense just like Intangible, with twists thrown in that you couldn’t ever have guessed would happen. There was heartache, love (I was so happy when certain people got together!), suspense, and humor all wrapped into one story. I laughed out loud more than once while reading this book, and that always makes for a better reading experience, I think. I also talked to the characters out loud (“No, Luke, don’t do it!”), which really tells me how engaged I am with the story and the characters themselves.
I do think that most of the characters are really well-written and I love several of them. However, I think there were a couple of characters that could have been more fleshed out and I hope we see more character development for them in the future installments. Also, at one point I felt like the main arc of this story was very similar to that of Intangible–way too similar, actually. But in the second half of the book that changed and a new story arc emerged. And with that new arc there were several more layers added onto the plot line of the entire series, creating an even more intriguing story.
My rating for Imaginable by J. Meyers:
More like 4.5. Meyers obviously puts a TON of work into her books, and it pays off. Imaginable was a great read that had me laughing out loud, thinking complexly about the characters and Meyers’s world, and extremely ready to get my hands on the next book.
