Brightest Kind of Darkness by P.T. Michelle aka Patrice Michelle

 RATED 5 STARS



We all have dreams and nightmares.  They are just part of life, right? Not for Nara Collins.  Her dreams predict what the following day will bring.  She is not real happy with this “gift” but she is used to it.
When a dream reveals something she can’t ignore, Nara makes a decision that she had to intervene in someone else’s life in spite of the cold apprehension that seems to surround her.
When she meets the mysterious Ethan Harris, she is attracted by his good looks and his kindness.  They begin a friendship that turns to love and they soon learn of each other’s gifts. 
Are they destined to be together or will they be torn apart by forces beyond their control?  Fate plays a hand in what is happening to both the teens who are willing to battle for their own lives.

Nara was sick and tired of her dreams so she wanted some excitement. In a “be careful what you ask for” kind of way, Nara’s life seems to be more and more dramatic.  She is drawn to Ethan but is unsure of him, she feels she is losing her best friend, and she still mourns the father that abandoned her and her mother.  This was a real teen with a lot of problems that she had to face.  Her dreams were decisive and real.  Her actions after were those of a heroine even though they never turned out the way she thought they would.  I liked her spunk and determination. 
Ethan’s gift was intriguing.  I wasn’t sure at first if he was going to be good for Nara or bad for her.  He turned out to be supportive and loving.  He protected her as best he could under dire circumstances.
The big dream sequence at the end of the book was exciting and frightening.  I was hoping the whole time that the two teens would be victorious.  I don’t want to reveal too much about this book because the tension of the story is very important for the reader.  P.T. kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end.  Can’t wait to read what happens next!
