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.

My Thoughts

Talk about a book starting off with a bang! Nara is a high school student who is not use to surprises- how can she be when every night she dreams about the next day.  Very rarely has she attempted to change the future- until the day she dreamed about her school blowing up.  She covertly calls in the bomb threat and saves plenty of lives.  Then her dreams just stop.
Without her dreams she is walking blind.  Her best friend Lainey and her start fighting.  There is a new guy at school that she may or may not like and her grades are dropping.  What is a gal to do?  How can she get her dreams back?  What caused them to go away in the first place?
First of all can I just say yikes!!!  Could you imagine be strong enough to call in that threat?  Nara is an extremely strong female character.  She doesn’t whine about the punches that life throws at her.  Instead she punches back.  Dad left them- so what, who needs him anyway?  Best friend gets angry?  She will get glad in the same britches she just got mad in.  If there is anyone who has read this story that does not like it will- I would seriously question their taste.
Speaking of taste can I please get an OMG for Ethan?  I mean mystery new guy that keeps protecting Nara- why?  A guy with a record who is good with animals.  Can I get a say what to that?  Ethan’s the strong silent type that keeps to himself but man does he got a thing for Nara.
Brightest Kind of Darkness is a fast-paced, is it over already kinda read.  That leaves you wondering what happens and when will there be more.  Luckily for you dear readers Lucid, the second book in the series is already out.

My Rating 4 out of 5

Other Characters

Lainey- Nara’s best friend, kinda well she goes through some stuff
