Brightest kind of darkness by P.T. MichelleMy review
Brightest kind of darkness book one.
What's it about?
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.
The only small complaint I have is that the ending was rather abrupt, I'd have liked maybe a small prologue to ease me out of the book rather than that heart stopping chapter and then nothing.
But, like I say, that's my only complaint, I liked all of the characters, Nara doesn't always see what's right in front of her but she's a nice girl and Ethan, the brooding indie boy, well I had to fan myself off when I read him. He's extremely perceptive and a great hero.
I really liked the writing and found the book easy to get into, there were a couple of times where it flashed to a little memory or something and then flashed back to the present where I got a bit confused as it wasn't always obvious we'd flashed back and I had to read parts over again to be sure, but I still finished the book quickly because I was enjoying it.
I can't wait to see what happens next for Nara and Ethan and hope they get some answers to what's happening to them.
My thoughts on the cover
This is a lovely cover, the woods are mysterious and I love the girl in the red dress, she's kind of inviting you in but she looks vulnerable to and the feathers add more mystery. After reading the book I know the scene it's from and think it fits perfectly.
