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.
I had seen this book and the first book around recently and it had some really good reviews so when I found this short Story free on Amazon I jumped at the chance but now I'm starting to wish I hadn't.
I like this cover especially the way in which there seems to be more than one image combined together as it gives a great effect. I also love the colours that have been used as they work well together.
This was a nice quick read but I felt a bit let down by it as I just couldn't get into it and found that my mind was wondering while I was supossed to be reading this. There was parts of the book that I enjoyed as them particular parts had me intrigued but then my mind would wonder again. With it being bonus story I thought that it would be more like a start of a journey but I didn't feel like that was the case. I liked the ending as that felt like a set up for what was to come but I'm not sure it was enough for me to continue with the story.
There wasn't many characters to be introduced to in this book as the main focus was the two siblings. I felt like we got to know more about Luke's personality more than Sera's for some reason but I would have liked to have known a bit more about them but I guess that will most likely happen in the full first book rather than this short story.
Overall I was a bit disappointed with this book but there was times when it was enjoyable.
