it was amazing
Read from August 05 to 06, 2012

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*

YA always makes me roll my eyes. This never happened in Lucid (like it never happened with Night School by C.J. Daugherty as well).


The plot is incredible. I do not know anymore what to think and where it would lead because every time I hope I know what's it about, it makes a 90 degree turn and loses its predictability.

Nara is fabulous, sensible and very interesting girl who after thwarting Fate in killing her in the first book for her ability to see the future and prevent bad things from happening to the people she is connected with, is just trying to catch a break...

Sadly, Ethan, her boyfriend, whom I loved to bits, is away mending his relationship with his parents through most of the book, and we don't see them together until the very end. But whoa! When he comes back I barely recognise him, because Ethan becomes formidable.

When Nara and Ethan meet in Brightest Kind of Darkness their relationship is sweet, and he plays a role of a nice guy who is struggling with his abilities. The love that evolves from their friendship is natural and it helps them overcome all the death threats to Nara.

While Ethan is away Nara continues her research into his tattoos and mystery of ravens surrounding him, and thus attracts attention of an unknown enemy. She is running for her life again and doesn't even know who is trying to kill her while Ethan is away.

Enter, Drystan. A Welsh boy who spends few weeks in US before he goes back to England.

Okay I did roll my eyes when he said that his mother took him away for a break before he moves from Wales to England (Yep, like they are not you know intertwined, and it's not like you just drive on the motorway and one moment you're in Wales and next in England...*facepalm* It's not like the supermarkets or shops and anything else is any different apart from second language of course. So, coming to US to prepare for "a change" is um-m... a bit extreme). However, Drystan is a very interesting boy who studies parkour and saves Nara's life few times with his amazing skills.

As much as I love Ethan. Drystan is lovely in his own way. He insists that Nara learns self-defence, he relentlessly trains her while she desperately wants Ethan to come back to her, he helps her in her investigations, and he's got his own secret talents which again combined with Nara's evolve into something new.

People die, people get hurt, the pace of the novel, the suspense, is breathtaking, and just as you start warming up to Drystan, BAM! Ethan comes back, and oh my, he is delicious...

I can't wait to find out what happens next and I insist you read both books ASAP. They are that good.
