This short story is so very well written that in just 16 short pages you find yourself already attached to the characters, picturing the beautiful Vermont mountains in your mind perfectly (and I have never seen them myself, but I now feel like I have), and worrying about things that I won't mention because I do not want to give anything away. This author has a way with words that just pulls you into the story and holds you there until the very last word and even then you just do not want to be let go. It is a very enjoyable short and I recommend it fully.
Twins, Luke and Sera, have special abilities. She can heal someone with her touch, and he can see the future but can't do anything about it. On a hike up a mountain near their home, Luke has a vision unlike anything he ever had before. His visions are never wrong, and he just had the one he never wanted to see.
I love prequel novellas. I know a lot of people dislike them, but I think they are brilliant. They are an ideal way to see if you are going to like a story. It's a minimum time investment for great results. They are perfect to drum up interest in a story and get you hooked. Intuition does just that.
Luke and Sera are nice characters. Of course you don't learn too much about them, it's a teeny novella, but you get to see that they have a great relationship with one another and they are nice to see. They don't come off as annoying or whiny. They seem to be fairly level-headed considering they have these gifts to live with.
The plot is simple. They are on a hike and Luke is dealing with the pre-effects of his visions. He knows one is coming, but he doesn't know when it will arrive. He has a vision of someone being hurt and they go to try to stop it, but don't make it in time. Afterwards, he has a second vision, this time one that is more than he ever wanted to see. It's very straight forward. But the writing is done really well. You are slowly built up to this, and then hooked. You aren't left feeling overly emotional, but your interest is piqued and you know that the first novel in the series is going to be on your to-read list.
All in all a strong start to what looks like it will be an interesting series. Plus, the novella is $0.99 or less on Amazon, B&N, and Smashwords. What do you have to lose?
The only flaw I found to this was not in the story itself. It was in the italics J.Meyer forgot to undo after the last vision Luke has. But it's a small error and only someone as ocd as I am about things will find it a bother.
Because this story is so short, I feel I can't rightfully give it a 5 since there weren't enough pages to give me much of an impression of anything. I do however enjoy the story for what it is.
So I give this book 4 of 5 paws

Unlike most I read Intangible before I read Intuition. Even though I read Intangible first I still enjoyed reading Intuition. It was very well written with an introduction to Intangible the first book in the series. Which is also J. Meyers début novel. Intuition introduces us to Luke's visions. Visions that he has never been able to stop or do anything about. Having vision and not being able to prevent them depresses Luke.
Intuition introduces us to Sera's gift also. Sera can heal with just a touch. She has no idea how it works. She is just over joyed that it does and that she can help people. Sera and Luke have always kept their gift a secret from everyone. The outside world would not understand and think they are freaks.
I recommend that you read Intuition before reading Intangible although I did not. It will give you a little incite to who Sera and Luke are and what they can do. Reading Intangible first will not in any way ruin Intuition. I am glad that I read it.
I enjoyed the story more the second time I read it because I had more insight into Luke and Sera's personalities as well as their relationship as twins. I was left wanting more!
It's funny because I had downloaded this story shortly after I received my Kindle for Christmas this year. I entered the giveaway here on Goodreads for a copy of Intangible, not realizing the two went together. I hadn't had a chance to read Intuition yet.
I didn't end up winning the giveaway for Intangible, but the author emailed me and so graciously offered to give me a copy of the book for my Kindle to review. I follow her blog, and I love the topics she writes about. Check out her profile and follow her blog! She really seems to love her readers and is completely friendly and approachable--my favorite qualities in an author. :)
