Lucid by P.T. Michelle Review

Lucid by P.T. Michelle
(Brightest Kind of Darkness, #2)
Release Date: July 9, 2012
Publisher: Patrice Michelle; 274 pages

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.

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 at the end of BKoD when it came to the relationship between Nara and Ethan, however this book is darker then the first one. That is not at all a bad thing. Almost right away in this story, Ethan is gone, trying to sort out his family issues in Michigan and Nara is all alone left to figure out more about Ethan’s new raven tattoo, and the more she seems to find out, the more dangerous certain situations become. For me, the library scene, without spoiling it for those who have not read it, gave me chills. I was scared reading it. I could picture myself fin Nara’s shoes and it was chilling. It seems that in this book Nara’s powers are not what they were in the first, but the new special ones she discovers is awesome. I wasn’t a huge fan of Ethan being gone for most of the book but I love the new characters especially Drystan. I knew right away he was gonna fall for Nara, but when I didn’t know and that was fun to read. The different events that happen in this book with Drystan really almost make you wonder if Nara is going to fall for him as well. He is a very interesting twist to this story.

When Ethan returns, he is a much darker Ethan. Throughout the book I was wondering what was going on with him, and in Lucid we don’t fully find out. I am so glad he still loves Nara just as much as he did before, but one line that he says a couple times still gets to me, “you have to let me do this one my own.” Yeah, I don’t like it and neither does Nara. In BKoD, Ethan wouldn’t be so cold about things like he is in Lucid. Something scary I feel is happening to Ethan and I am very intrigued to find out what!! I do like the touch at the end of the book, I don’t want to spoil anything but in the end of both books something very cool happens and it makes me very excited to see what happens next.

I loved this book. Anything my PT Michelle and I am there. It is such a pleasure to read her stories and her stories captivate me ever so much. I am so glad I came along this series and like the first book, I was GLUED to my phone! This is a series you definitely want to pick up! Amazing!
