Description

Peter Stewart grew up on a unique version of the Arthurian legends taught him by his father, a harebrained quantum physicist who asserts that anything is possible. But Peter disbelieves anything which cannot be scientifically explained, despite a nagging sense that there is more to the world than meets the eye.

Lily Portman is an orphan with a secret: she can see creatures that are invisible to everyone else. These creatures control every human being she has ever met to varying degrees... until she meets Peter and his father.
When a mysterious stranger stages an accident which nearly costs Peter and Lily their lives, suddenly Lily learns that she is not crazy after all, and Peter discovers the truth of his father’s stories... including the existence of Arthur’s ancient nemesis, one who calls himself the Shadow Lord, and a prophecy with implications so profound that it will alter not only the course of their lives, but potentially the fate of the world.

About the author

C.A. Gray is the author of three YA Amazon bestselling trilogies: PIERCING THE VEIL (magic and quantum physics meet Arthurian legends), THE LIBERTY BOX (dystopian metaphysics and mind control technology), and UNCANNY VALLEY (dystopian coming-of-age with neuroscience and super intelligent A.I). She starts with some scientific concept that she’s interested in learning more about herself, and then creates lots of epic chaos and high-stakes action to go along with it. Her stories are free of gratuitous violence, language, and sexual content, and she abhors depressing endings... but they’re not all kittens and rainbows either. She also reads and reviews audiobooks on her website (www.authorcagray.com), Goodreads, Instagram, and on her podcast, Clean Audiobook Reviews, where she also occasionally interviews other authors.By day, C.A. Gray practices naturopathic medicine, podcasts, and writes medical non-fiction under her maiden name (Dr. Lauren Deville). She lives in Tucson, AZ with her husband Frank, and together they maintain an occasionally contentious film review blog (under her real name: Lauren Baden. Three names. Yes.) She’s kind of the queen of multitasking—so in her spare time, she creates whatever meals or crafts she found most recently on Pinterest, drinks lots of coffee (Aeropress btw) and occasional wine (reds—and she saves the corks for craft projects), works out (while listening to audiobooks), and studies the Bible—about half of the podcasts on Christian Natural Health are scripture meditations. She does sleep, too. Promise.Join her newsletter for best-of-the-month reads, freebies and giveaway information, as well as new releases! http://eepurl.com/F3rof

    For me, this book was one of those cases where the idea sounds great, but the actual book was not so much. I loved the premise and was very excited to read this book, because I’m a big fan of Arthurian legends. I’m sad to say that I was a bit disappointed, but maybe my expectations were too high.

    I liked how imaginative the book was and how the Arthurian legend was used, but I didn’t like the characters so much. It’s not that they were exactly flat, but they felt somewhat undeveloped. After I finished the book, I couldn’t say that many things about them. Also, to me it looked like the “why” for some characters’ actions was sometimes missing or not explained that well.

    In general, not a bad book, but on the lower part of YA (I mean the age part), so all the science is not as explained as in the more mature YA books. Not necessarily a bad thing, but something worth mentioning. Also, I am curious about how the series will develop. Who knows? Maybe I’ll like the series as a whole more than this individual book.

    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.
