{BLOG TOUR} Brightest Kind of Darkness ~ P.T. Michelle

Before I get in to my review for this SUPER AWESOME 5+ STAR BOOK, the book trailer for Brightest Kind of Darkness was just released! Woot Woot, trailer time!


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.

So, my thoughts?

I am absolutely 100% in love with this book. I was hooked from the beginning and could not stop reading until I knew what happened to Nara & Ethan. First I found it intriguing that she dreamed her next day. (This also put me in mind of Cat Patrick's Forgotten, but totally NOT the same!) Nara has made a conscious decision not to change the course of the day's events...until that pesky bomb she dreamed. Then she had to say something. But of course, there are consequences. And not very nice consequences.

In the process she meets Ethan. Ethan is a mystery. No one knows much about him but of course, being high school-the rumors are FLYING! But he calms Nara, even when she stops having her dreams. And he always seems to be there to rescue her. Yes, rescue her. What the hell is going on with her life now? Suddenly with the appearance of Ethan, ravens, and the disappearance of her prophetic dreams, her life is at times in danger! O.o

So that's the story in a nutshell. There was no love triangle (thank you book gods), no life changing love match. Just a natural love interest. (Again thank you book gods.) Nara does not have a perfect life, despite knowing everything that goes on the next day. I'm happy to read that. yeah, that sounds odd, but perfect lives and predictability in books get old after a while.Luckily, I never got 'tired' of BKoD! Yay!

Now, do yourself a favor and go read the book! It does not disappoint. And while you're at it, go ahead and get Lucid. (Book 2) I could not wait to start it and had to immediately start on it!

I'm curious dear readers-if you were gifted with the chance to see your entire next day, would you alter event outcomes to your favor? To prevent someone getting hurt? To help a friend? Let me know in the comments!

[If you are a fan of the Final Destination movies, you will more than likely enjoy BKoD!]
