This book is a fantastic sequel. This is how second books should be. I loved Brightest Kind of Darkness so I have been looking forward to reading Lucid. If you want to see my review for BKoD click here. I was sucked right back into Nara's world from the first pages. We get to meet some new characters that are interesting, and also some a little suspicious. Well, to me anyways. I may or may not have been proven wrong in some cases. Being that this is the second book in the series I really don't w ...more

Sadly, Lucid did not quite capture my heart the way Brightest Kind of Darkness did. I still really, really liked it, but it didn't have the feel as the first one did. It was wholly enjoyable. I breezed through it and when I was done I definitely was left breathless. Somehow, despite all this, it didn't really grab me the way that Brightest Kind of Darkness did. This review may seem a bit harsh, but I really did adore this book.

Wow! That is a book! I read this book over a very long period of time cause other books kept on catching my interest. I am so glad I finally finished it because the end was mind blowing.
The first half of the book was kind of boring because Ethan was not there and I loved Ethan and the characters were only finding out new things and Nara was just researching stuff to help Ethan. Then Ethan started getting distant and Nara kept on becoming more and more worries and finding out more of her past, he

Yep, your eyes aren't tricking you. 5 stars for one mind-blowing, beautiful story, that I really don't know what to expect from anymore.

WHOA! I can't tell you how many times I've pushed Brightest Kind of Darkness on my readers in the last year. I've recommended it, I gave it away and generally loved it for its wonderful main characters and a very tight plot.

Well, Lucid is even better. So be ready, as I will be bullying you into reading it for another year *grinning*

I enjoyed Lucid even more than I had expected to. It was honestly a very fun read.

I read Brightest Kind of Darkness only about a week before its sequel. I did enjoy it but a few little things bothered me: teen angst, melodrama and Twilight throwbacks. For those reasons I could award that book no more than three stars. I'm happy to say that Lucid deserves four stars from me. At times it was a little too angsty, but there was enough action to even that out.

I've grown to love Nara. Her head is an

Lucid is a wonderful follow up to Brightest Kind of Darkness. The story keeps you guessing and the plot moves along at a nice pace. However, Lucid did not grab me the way Brightest Kind of Darkness did. I was invested in the story and eager to know what was going to happen, but when I put the book down there was no overwhelming desire to pick it back up. Maybe I was just in a weird mood, but Brightest Kind of Darkness was a book I just could not pu

You all know how much I loved P.T Michelle's first book 'A Brightest Kind of Darkness' so I've been waiting impatiently for the release of Lucid, I needed to be back in this amazing world that P.T has created and I needed to be back with these fantastic characters. And what I got from Lucid was a whole load of awesomeness and more!

In Lucid, we see's Nara seek out answer's to all the mysterious questions surrounding her, Ethan and the Ravens, but while she seeking the questions, Nara i

Thank god for this series, I was kinda gonna give up on YA, after all the complete generic bullshit I've had to go through. Book 2 continues about a week (I think) after the 1st book. Ethan has gone to his parents to try patch up their rocky relationship, while dear old Nara tries to research about the raven connection and how the fuck Ethan got those tattoos. With Ethan's exit comes a new guy, Drystan,from across the pond.....and by that I meant he's welsh. At this point I was like, Wait WHAT! ...more
Firstly i would like to thank the Author P.T.Michelle for giving me the honour of reading and reviewing this awsome book.

Luckly Brightest Kind of Darkness was fresh on my mind still when i started reading Lucid. It was a great follow up. With more action and twists and turns and more secrets revealed and new character to love and hate.

I missed Ethan in this one as he was gone most of the time trying to rebuild his relationship with his parents and also to try to figure a few things out about him

This sequel is amazing. I read it from cover to cover in one sitting, absolutely absorbed by the tale P.T. Michelle weaves as we learn more about Nara’s and Ethan’s abilities. Having won against Fate, and with Nara safe for the time being, Ethan sets out to reconcile with his family, leaving Nara to figure out her many questions on her own. Thus, Ethan is missing from the novel for more than half of it, but while I really missed him, I truly enjoyed Drystan. Upon meeting him, the reader automati ...more

I was lucky enough to win a copy of Brightest Kind of Darkness little after it was released... I read it right away, fell in love and had to undergo and painful waiting period while Lucid came out. This waiting period had two effects: it increased my urge to read Lucid ASAP and it made my expectations skyrocket...

Well, again I was in luck: I got a review copy thanks to PT Michelle upon publication, and it surpassed even my hightened expectations.

Lucid was a book I was waiting for ever since I finished Brightest Kind of Darkness. I fell in love with this story and these characters from the get go. I could not put BKoD down and it was exactly the same with Lucid. The connection that the main characters, Inara and Ethan have is so special and so real, you feel like you are in the story with them. Lucid was an amazing sequel to BKoD and it didn’t miss a beat.

When Lucid begins, it starts off with the same in love and special feeling you had

WOW Lucid did not disappoint me! I'm not going to jump on the band wagon about missing Ethan in this book because I feel that the story progressed without him. He was alluded to throughout the book but wasn't needed as Drystan was put front and center. I do find it very refreshing that a love triangle was not introduced into this book which had me thanking all that was holy! I cannot stand another one of those, and the love between Nara and Ethan is pure and sweet and should stay exactly as it i ...more

Some of the reviews I've read so far say this book wasn't as good as the first, and I have to agree. It was BETTER!! While Ethan wasn't in a majority of this book and that disappoints a lot of readers, it was a true to life scenario. Ethan has to figure himself out before he can devote himself completely to Nara. Plus, in real life our loved ones can't be in the picture 24/7 even if we wish they could!! But I promise if you read through this whole book, it wont disappoint! PT Michelle, you did i ...more
This book turned out to be so much more than what I thought. I wish that Ethan was in it more though.I missed him so much. I am really looking forward to reading more about him in the next book. The new characters were interesting, but they don't hold a candle to Ethan for me. When he returned and rescued Nara, I was cheering for them. I love they want so much to express and feel everything with each other. The ending was amazing!

Oh my gosh...what a great 2nd book!! I did miss Ethan's presence, but i think it was important to focus on Nara for the development of her character. I am STOKED to find out the deets regarding her new development and the importance of Drystin's role!

Really good sequel in my opinion. I did miss Ethan though, he only appeared in the last 40 pages so that was a bit of a let down. There was even more mystery in this one than there was in the first so I can't wait for some answers in the third part!

Lucid was spellbinding, very much like it's predecessor: Brightest Kind of Darkness, it keeps you enthralled, trapped in suspense and trying to unravel mystery after mystery until the very last page, where like Nara... you feel satisfied, yet not at the same time! *snigger*

P.T Michelle is a mastermind at keeping you on your toes!

After devouring the first book in this series, I couldn't wait to dive into the second installment. 'Lucid' picks up right where 'Brightest Kind of Darkness' leaves off. The story flows effortlessly with the first book, so it felt like I hadn't missed a step between books. Just like the first novel, this book centers on Nara and Ethan as they continue their journey together to figure out their abilities and to battle the forces conspiring against them.

Lucid I felt was just as good or possibly better than The Brightest Kind of Darkness, I didn’t realizes how much I missed this series until I began reading it. Though this book has very little Ethan, it focuses on Nara and her growth into discovering more about whom she is and her connection with Ethan.

I really liked book 1, but I loved this one. We are already introduced to most of the characters and now get deeper into the story, find out even more about their powers and see the characters develop. There are always multiple things going on and this book definitely had that keep-reading feel. I even stayed up late to finish it.

I love the story of this book, it's original and there's so much going on. There are normal things goin on, like the normal life of Inara and her best friend. And there

I completely fell fell in love with Ethan and Nara in Brightest Kind of Darkness, and I was so excited to read Lucid, book 2 in the series to see where P.T.

Since Nara Collins was 7 years old, each night she has dreamed her entire next day before it occurs, that was until she met Ethan Harris, when the dreams began to change.

First, I just have to say how amazing I think the covers for this series have been. The color and feel of fall is something I just love about them. Not to mention, they are eye catching and really make you wonder where the story is going to take you.
The first time I read about Brightest Kind of Darkness I knew I had to read it. I was totally right and it hooked me from chapter one. Nara and Ethan's story is addicting. You don't want to let it go. It was a good thing the release of Lucid wasn't f

Yes!I was sad Ethan wasn't in most of the book but i think i got to know more of Nara this time and how she handled the whole situation alone without Ethan's support and i have to say she did great job...all she wants is to help Ethan and she will go to any extent for it and that has landed her in serious trouble.

Drystan was a very different character and i still am not sure of his intentions ..i liked how he protected Nara at all time and helped her defend...but still there's something i can't

Brightest Kind of Darkness was the very first self-published book I ever read, and it completely exceeded all my expectations. After I finished it in November last year I started stalking the author on Twitter to make sure I knew when the next one was coming out. Originally Lucid was planned to be a novella to bridge the gap between two books, but it ended up being a full length novel which could not have made me happier.

After a few pages in, I was dying just to get to the end already. I read though the book with my heart in my throat. So much is going on so fast I was like," Hold up! Re-wind, WTH just happen!!."

Nara is a girl on a mission. She is seeking out what ever info she can find about the mysterious tattoos on Ethan’s back. But along the way she finds trouble…imagine that. The closer she gets to the truth the stronger the evil is that is stalking her and causing her harm. Who is after her? And what do they want with her journal?

At the start of Lucid, not far from where Brightest Kind of Darkness ends, we realize that Ethan has went back home to mend his broken relationship with his family. So, m
