Summary(from Goodreads):

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.

Brightest Kind of Darkness is soo good! Seriously, I loved this book. The premise is fresh and such a cool idea! Plus it is more complex than it initially seemed. I still have no idea what is going on with Ethan. You get answers in layers, and I want more, more, more. All I know is that I LOVED him. I just started reading book 2, Lucid because I need to know what is going to happen next.

Nara dreams her whole next day. How different and awesome/scary is that? I can’t decide for the life of me if I would love or hate this gift. I think I would like it, no matter how creepy it might be, because I always like knowing things over not knowing. I applaud her willpower too. She normally always stays out of things. Meaning, she lets life take its natural course. But then one day, she steps in to save some lives and that is when the book takes off from. It is action right from page 1. I was so engrossed in the story the whole time. Ethan is so freakin’ perfect for Nara it is crazy. I love seeing the two of them interact.

The writing is excellent, the plot is so intriguing, and the characters are awesome! I had to think long and hard before even coming up with anything critical to say about Brightest Kind of Darkness because I really enjoyed the book. I got sucked in right from the start and I just kept reading until I was done. But I did finally come up with something- Lainey. She was so quick to give up and turn her back on her best friend. She eventually came around and realized how uncool and rude she was, but it still bugged me to see Nara isolated like that.

I can’t wait to get back to Lucid and see what is going on with Ethan, Nara and the whole gang. I have a feeling that way more is going on with Ethan than even he knows about. If you are looking for a mysterious paranormal, the Brightest Kind of Darkness series is one that I would wholeheartedly recommend for you to check out! I have fallen in love with it.

    I agree with you 100%! This book was amazing. There’s so much going on and it’s not predictable. And Ethan… oh, he was wonderful. I can’t wait to start on the second book. Looking forward to your review for that! 🙂
