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.

The Book DepositoryChapters/IndigoGood Reads


Ishnara has a gift of seeing the future in her dreams. When she stops a bomb that was about to detonate in her own Hugh school, her world is turned upside down. Her powers stop, she meets the new student Ethan who is seems like a bad boy but underneath that exterior, is a good person. Their relationship starts to gradually increase in

Nara is one character that I actually liked. She’s not the type to whine or complain about how she thinks she’s ugly. Her relationship with her mom isn’t perfect, and I love that her home life is flawed. No one’s life is perfect, and I love P.T. Michelle’s realistic writing. Then there’s the love interest. Ethan is definitely mysterious, yet he volunteers at the animal shelter? I think I’m in love! He’s an animal lover. I pretty much loved him after what he did. Such a sweetheart.

If Final Destination (without the violence) were to be made into a book, I’m pretty sure Brightest Kind of Darkness would be it, but only better. The flow and pacing of the novel was so very quick, and I pretty much devoured it in two sittings. (That doesn’t happen often) I loved the paranormal aspect of it, and even better that the evil they encounter isn’t even a human or a creature. It’s still a mystery, and I love that. I definitely got goosebumps reading several chapters.

I’m still peeved at the many questions that was left unraveled which is why I’m so keen to pick up the next copy!

    This one has been sitting on my shelf for a while now, but after reading your review and remembering that it is there, I plan to pull it down and get started. It sounds so very good, and I have heard such great things about it. Thanks for your review!

    I’ve heard many amazing things about this series and I’m glad you enjoyed it. I love the concept for it and I can’t wait to meet the characters! 🙂

    Great review!

    This one sounds exciting. I can just tell from the synopsis and your review that I just have to pick this one up!

    Loved the concept of this book. I haven’t had the opportunity to read it, but with your review plus the synopsis, my mind has a pretty good idea and I like it.
    I really like that the writing is realistic even if this is a paranormal book, ’cause it makes easier to relate with the character. I loved your review, as always.

    Sounds pretty interesting! You said Final Destination without the violence right? not a fan of Final Destination movies *shudder*

    Thanks for the review!

      Yess! Final Destination WITHOUT the violence.

    For some reason, when I saw this book I didn’t go pick it up and read it (bad Grace, bad) and now I’m quite intrigued. It’s interesting how P.T. Michelle chose to write Nara into a very flawed world, which I must applaud her for. Life’s not perfect, and I love reading a character’s imperfect life rather than a flawless one.

      Same here. There’s a lot more drama in imperfect life.

    Great Review! I really liked the cover for this one, the leaves are so pretty! I’d to know Nara’s story, her paranormal powers are so different than all the other mainstreams books right now, it’s refreshing!

    Hi! Thanks for the review! I love that you’re comparing this book to Final Desitnation. Interesting… lol. Thanks for the post and giveaway!

    I love the concept of this one! I’ve heard about the nature of the ‘antagonist’ in another review and I’m really curious and intrigued by that aspect. Great review, glad to hear it’s goosebumpy 😉
