“If you're a YA PNR lover but your bored with the mediocrity of the genre's recent additions this will restore your faith. Brightest Kind of darkness is a well crafted paranormal romance with a refreshing and original plot, I couldn't get enough.
Throughout the book there is a deep sense of mystery and otherworldliness, there were parts of the book that gave me chills and it wasn't from something in your face scary, just wrong. The story unraveled at a steady pace, with new surprises and developments around every corner. I kept thinking I had all the info but more crazy would happen. Ethan and Nara kept their wits about them pretty well considering, I'd have run screaming for the hills.
Nara has a lot of beleivability to her character, she is very "teen". A lot of times you get 30 year old mind in a 16 year olds body. It was great to see the value Nara puts on her family and her ties to them. She has a close relationship with her Aunt and actively tries to strengthen the bond with her mom through the entire story. No parents getting axed in the first chapter. Ethan is absolutely drool-worthy. He seems the typical tall, dark and broody boy with a shady past and I was pleasantly surprised by his sensitive streak,. He's very supportive of Nara and encourages her to take control of her life.
I was consumed by this book and hungry for more, I can't wait to see what happens in the next installment Lucid. 5 out of 5.
