LUCID: BRIGHTEST KIND OF DARKNESS, BOOK 2
Once Nara combines her prophetic ability with Ethan’s power to outsmart Fate at his own deadly cat-and-mouse game, she’s more determined than ever to help Ethan learn the meaning behind the raven sword tattoo that suddenly appeared on his back after their confrontation with Fate.
During her quest to uncover the tattoo’s secrets, Nara enlists the help of some new friends and discovers her own surprising connection to Ethan.
While Nara digs deeper into the mystery, her desire for answers leads her down a dangerous path full of powerful and ruthless enemies. Swept into an age-old battle, Nara quickly learns that keeping one’s enemies close can be a necessary evil, making an intangible enemy she can control far more preferable to the human enemies she can’t.

Favorite Quote(s):

“Resting his lips against my hair, he exhaled a ragged, desperate whisper, ‘How can you love me? From one day to the next, I don’t know what’s going on with me.'”

Favorite Character: Ethan! He’s delightfully dark and mysterious, as well as sweet and devoted!
First Line:

“For me, being suprised was like wearing my best friend’s favorite shirt; cherished for its borrowed uniqueness.”

My Musings: Wow. I wasn’t expecting sure a riveting story from the summary I read when I signed up for this blog tour. I was expecting a mediocre novel with a decent plot and okay characters. However, as the book progressed, that prediction slapped me in the face. Brightest Kind of Darkness is one of those unique books—you don’t exactly hear about fighting Fate, do you? Michelle took paranormal writing to a whole new level with this unique twist. The writing was entertaining, and it was easy for me to get lost in the book.

The characters were well developed. I loved Nara’s character: she’s so used to the normal, that when that is disturbed, she freaks out. That sounds exactly like something I would do. Nara’s character is relatable, and while battling with Fate, she also experiences normal high school experiences like snobby girls, boyfriends, and fighting with best friends. This mixture of normal and paranormal was exciting to read. I also adored Ethan’s character; although at first he creeped me out, as I learned more about his character, the more I fell in love with him. He is honest to God in love with Nara, and his devotion to her is admirable. Their relationship reminded me of yin and yang; opposites, but perfect together.

This novel made me happy. It made me sad. It took me on a rollercoaster of emotions as the characters continued on their journey. There were twists and turns, and nothing was ever predictable. I loved watching the characters grow and develop as the book wore on, and I’m excited to see what happens in the next novel. I’m glad that I signed up for this tour—I probably wouldn’t have heard of this amazing book otherwise. The plot was idiosyncratic. The evil characters were creepy, which was, of course, riveting, although albeit they sometimes kept me up at night! (Kidding!). The writing was smooth, and the writing was eloquent. I honestly cannot think of anything bad to say about this novel.

4.5 Stars
