ARC Review--Invisible by Dawn Metcalf

Some things lie beneath the surface.


With the power to change everything.

Joy Malone wants it all—power, freedom and the boyfriend who loves her. Yet when an unstoppable assassin is hired to kill her, Joy learns that being the girl with the Sight comes with a price that might be too high to pay. Love will be tested, lives will be threatened, and everyone Joy knows and cares about will be affected by her decision to stand by Ink or to leave the Twixt forever.

Her choice is balanced on a scalpel's edge and the consequences will be more life-altering than anyone can guess.

I received this ARC from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, I was in no way compensated for this review.

Invisible is Dawn Metcalf's second novel in the Twixt series. At least I think it's a series, maybe a trilogy...only time will tell. And just as the first book was this one was equally exciting!

I feel like now I have a better understanding of the Folk world or the Twist as it's called. Things suddenly became more clear to me as I read this one. I was able to understand a lot more. But still, the marking of humans by the Folk is something I don't fully get, but no matter really!

Joy is able to undo these marks and it's something that must be kept secret from other Folk, or else there would be a lot of trouble for her. Not that she doesn't already have enough. Folk are harassing her lately and one is so bold as to try to kill her. He's a stubborn and adamant assassin that she and Ink can't seem to get rid of.

Joy's brother, Stef comes home for the summer carrying his own secret. While Joy also continues to dig herself deeper with her own secrets. She begins helping other Fold remove their unwanted marks. She does this in secret because she doesn't want Ink to know right away. Then there's also Joy still keeping Ink a mystery from her friend, Monica and her family. How can she introduce them to a boyfriend they can't see? It's not long before Joy's choices leave her on her own. She makes some mistakes and finds herself alone.

The romance was once again just delightful. For what we had anyway. Joy and Ink are eventually separated for sometime. But still, I love their romance. Ink is still so new to human tendencies, so every kiss, every touch and little moment is just so endearing! I can't get enough of it!

The ending was something of a shocker too. But I like how nearly all the loose ends are tied off, yet leaving fodder for another book naturally. Once again I must commend Dawn on the balance she has with Joy's life. There's a good amount of normal human moments as there are Folk filled ones and I love it! We get the best of both worlds.

This is a series that is fast addicting! The action is well dispersed too. There's hardly a dull moment in this book. I truly enjoyed it from page to page; my heart racing to see how things turned out. I so can't wait for the next one. Let there be a next one, Dawn!

Overall Rating 4.5/5 stars
