Received a copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
If you’re a fan of the Harry Potter series and are familiar with the Arthurian legend, then you’ll love this book! As a HUGE Potterhead I instantly fell in love with Gray’s style of storytelling—this was a seriously irresistible coming-of-age fantasy adventure! Can’t stress this enough: Harry Potter + Arthurian Legend = AWESOME Sauce!!!
I was slightly busier than usual, so it took me a bit longer to finish. But I thought the pacing was perfect. I was able to pick it up and jump right back into the action. Every time I had to put it down, all I could do was think about how badly I wanted to find out what happened next. You could tell this book was well researched and thought out. Nothing felt rushed. The twists and turns were fun and very surprising. Ms. Gray did a beautiful job of blending the reality and fantasy worlds together and the exposition was handled in an extremely entertaining manner. So often you can get caught up in the tiny details of explaining your world. Gray nailed it.
What was really interesting is that the main characters aren’t all that loveable right off the bat. They’re awkward—a little lost. Anti-heroes of a sort. Particularly Brock and Peter. Realistic! But I just loved seeing each and every one of these characters go through a journey or growth and self-discovery. I felt compelled to root for these kids.
“Intangible” is smart, very well written, and a heap of fun! Very much looking forward to the next installment.
P.S. You have no excuse not to get this book. It’s FREE!
