Intangible (The Aerling Series, #1)

Mason is not imaginary.
He's not a ghost, either.
And he's most definitely not a hallucination.

Mason is an Aerling, and the Sentinels' number one target.

Separated to keep each other safe and alive until Mason's eighteenth birthday when Olivia is expected to guide him back to the world of the Aerlings, neither one was prepared to be stripped of their best friend, of the person they love most. The pain being away from each other causes is the least of their worries, though, as the Sentinels intensify their search for Mason and bring the threat of danger to a whole new level.
I have to start by saying that The Aerling Series is one of my all time favorite YA reads.The first book in the series, Invisible, ended with a heart wrenching scene that had me in tears, so I was pretty certain that the beginning of Intangible was going to be an emotional time for Olivia and Mason. Since this is a sequel, my review won't have a lot of details - I don't want to give away the first in the series!

Gladden has an amazing way of building such incredible depth and life into her characters. When I first started reading the series, I had a hard time feeling sympathy for Olivia. And while I grew to like her character, I still felt she was being unfair to Mason. Going into Intangible, I was totally on board with her and Mason being together. It was impossible not to feel the agony that these two go through and yet, Gladden also keeps focused on the storyline as well. This is not a romance with a paranormal subplot.

What I loved best about Intangible and Invisible is that even if the romance wasn't there, I'd still want to read the series. The concept is well developed and thought out, and while Invisible introduced the read to Aerlings, Intangible brings us deeper into the mystery surrounding them. I absolutely can't wait to read the next book in the series!

More about The Aerling Series
The Characters:

Invisible (The Aerling Series, #1)

Olivia’s best friend is not imaginary. He’s not a ghost, either. And she’s pretty sure he’s not a hallucination. He’s just Mason.

He is, however, invisible.

When Olivia spotted the crying little boy on her front porch at five years old, she had no idea she was the only one who could see him. Twelve years later when new-girl Robin bumps into the both of them and introduces herself to Mason, they are both stunned.

Mason couldn’t be more pleased that someone else can see him. Olivia, on the other hand, isn’t jumping at the chance to welcome Robin into their circle. Jealousy may have something to do with
that, but honest fear that Robin’s presence will put Mason in danger is soon validated when a strange black car shows up outside Olivia’s house.

The race to find out what Robin knows in time to protect Mason from whatever threats are coming becomes Olivia’s only focus.
