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.
Let me just first say that I didn't realize that this bonus story actually took place prior to the story in Intangible. Had I thought to check when they were published, I might have known to read this before reading Intangible, but as it was, I didn't. So, if interested in this series, be sure to read this story first!
Intuition seems to take place not long before the story in Intangible. You have 17 year old twins, Luke and Sera Raine, who are Gifted. Sera can heal with the touch of her hands and Luke can see the future. At the beginning of the book they set out to go hiking, which has become almost a ritual for them ... a way to escape and relax from their everyday lives.
Since this story is really rather short, I can't say much about the storyline as that would spoil everything. But the events that occur in this story are referenced in Intangible. One briefly but the other is a major story point, though if you've read the synopsis for Intangible, you can probably guess. :) So again, read Intuition first if you want to start this series!
I'm finding it hard to rate this short story. I think that I might have enjoyed it more had I read it first because, as I've mentioned, what is in this story is referenced in Intangible. So there wasn't really anything new, just an expanded story that you only got a quick bit of info on within the pages of Intangible. It is, of course, well written and interesting none-the-less.
