Brightest Kind of Darkness (Brightest Kind of Darkness #1) by P.T. Michelle

bkodBlurb: 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.

I have been meaning to finish this series for ages but the last book just came out last month and then I figured its been so long I should probably reread them.  So this is my second turn with this book. And I gotta say, it was even better this time around.

First off, the cover, I’m not really a cover kind of gal but this cover is beautiful right? This is the first series I am finishing in the new year.  My goal is to finish ten series this year.  I think I’ll hit that goal.

This story is unlike any that I have read before.  With her dreaming and his emotion stealing its very original.  I really love how their relationship evolves so effortlessly.  The first time I read this I didn’t really think it played a huge role in the plot but reading it a second time I noticed that Ms PTM can right emotions so fricking well.  Their emotions flow so easily in tandem with the main plot its easy to overlook them at first.

And I liked how her family wasn’t just a passing thought.  Too often in YA novels the parents and/or other family only play in the background.  This is not the case with this book.  She weaves them into the story and gives them dimension and depth.  And that’s one of the reasons I have kept tabs on this series since its inception in 2011.  I am excited to finish it and at the same time weary of the end.

Highly recommended to all YA lovers.
