Imaginable (Intangible #2) 
by J Meyers

I got an ARC for review from the author

Blurb from Goodreads: 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.

My Review:
I really enjoyed the first book in this series and was really glad when I got the second book for review. Imaginable has the same great writing style as the first book, but I liked the story a little less. Intangible just had a stronger story, maybe this also had something to do with the vision Luke Sees in that book.

The story takes of great, it was awesome to be back in this world and quite soon we learn a lot more about the rhealm. I do think the beginning was actually the best part, later on the story started to drag a bit. Some things just didn’t make sense, some things were too easy, while other things were too difficult. It felt a bit off at times. The story was a bit boring at times and the kidnapping and rescue got a bit old.

I still love the fact that Luke and Sera are twins. Unfortunately I started liking the characters a bit less in this book. I got annoyed at Luke sometimes because he so stubborn and sometiems he made assumption without knowing more. He also rushed into danger a bit too easilt, while he is just a human and his presence could endanger others. Sera seemed to be the damsel in distress in this book. And I know she couldn’t really fight, but sometimes I wished she showed a bit more strenght. And some of her reasoning was a bit off. I did like Fey in this book, she really is the voice of reason and thinks things through before jumping to action. At the beginning I did had some trouble remembering who some of the characters were, Brendal, Quinn and Raquel. And even when I finished the book I still couldn’t remember what they did in book 1. I think I should’ve re-read book 1 so I didn’t have this problem.

The begin of the story contains quite some world building and I liked what we learned about the Rhealm. Later on the world building got less and at some points I was left with many questions that weren’t answered. Like the shadows who are the evil guys, but we never really learn anything about them and why they are evil and why other creatures side with them, it just felt like they are evil because they are evil, but I believe even evil has a reason and this seemed to be absent completely. I just wanted to know about the ‘evil’ creatures and also the motivation behind some characters actions.

To conclude: I enjoyed this book, but I thought book 1 was better. The story started off really good, but got a bit boring towards the end. I liked both Luke and Sera a bit less in this book, but I still really liked Fey. There is some world building in this book, especially at the beginning, but later on I was left with lots of unaswered questions. Overall it still was an enjoyable book, but not as good as the first book.

    I am reading this at the moment, and it’s definitely great to be back. I also wish I had time to reread the first book. Great review, I’m looking forward to finishing it and see if we agree on the rest of it 🙂

      Let me know your thoughts when you’ve finished it. Indeed it was great to be back in this world and I am really sad I didn’t had the chance to re-read the first book, because I was missing some pieces of information now.

      Yeah I always hate it when the second book is less likeable than the first. Too bad it happens quite often.
      There is a scene at the beginning of Imaginable about the realm that’s done really well.
