Brightest Kind of Darkness (Brightest Kind of Darkness, #1)


Nara Collins is an average sixteen-year-old, with one exception: every night she dreams the events of the following day. Due to an incident in her past, Nara avoids using her special gift to change fate…until she dreams a future she can’t ignore.
After Nara prevents a bombing at Blue Ridge High, her ability to see the future starts to fade, while people at school are suddenly being injured at an unusually high rate.
Grappling with her diminishing powers and the need to prevent another disaster, Nara meets Ethan Harris, a mysterious loner who seems to understand her better than anyone. Ethan and Nara forge an irresistible connection, but as their relationship heats up, so do her questions about his dark past.

Lucid (Brightest Kind of Darkness, #2)LUCID: BRIGHTEST KIND OF DARKNESS, BOOK 2

Once Nara combines her prophetic ability with Ethan’s power to outsmart Fate at his own deadly cat-and-mouse game, she’s more determined than ever to help Ethan learn the meaning behind the raven sword tattoo that suddenly appeared on his back after their confrontation with Fate.
During her quest to uncover the tattoo’s secrets, Nara enlists the help of some new friends and discovers her own surprising connection to Ethan.
While Nara digs deeper into the mystery, her desire for answers leads her down a dangerous path full of powerful and ruthless enemies. Swept into an age-old battle, Nara quickly learns that keeping one’s enemies close can be a necessary evil, making an intangible enemy she can control far more preferable to the human enemies she can’t.

When I finished reading Brightest Kind of Darkness, I kept swiping my Kindle trying to turn to the next page.  I never wanted it to end.  So when I got my copy of LUCID, I locked myself in my bedroom and told my husband not to bother me.  To say this book was on the top of my most anticipated sequels list, was quite the understatement.

Nara is as likeable and relatable as ever.  She develops more as a character and takes some unexpected paths along the way.  I enjoyed seeing her relationships grow and deepen while keeping in the normal high school life.  Her quest for knowledge brings some twists and turns that left me stunned. 

Much to my disappointment, Ethan is not in a big section of the book.  I absolutely fell head of heels in love with him in the first book, so I was very sad when he left to reconcile with his parents.  But, the fact he wanted to do that is yet another reason why I absolutely adore him.

Speaking of adoring male characters, I was so glad when Drystan the mystery man with the English accent appears.  He is full of intrigue and secrets that will leave you stunned.

All in all, I enjoyed the book.  It is a good sequel that perfectly sets up the next book.  It'll keep you wanting more and anticipating the finale to this marvelous series.
