Books: The Cheapest Vacation You Can Buy

{February 28, 2013}   {Review} Ethan by P.T. Michelle (Brightest Kind of Darkness #0.5)

16248994From Goodreads: Ethan Harris never thought monsters and darkness would consume his daily thoughts, but every night the same visions repeat in his dreams. He’s careful to project a semblance of normalcy, keeping the suffocating darkness locked inside. As much as he wishes he could focus on girls, sports, and cars like other seventeen-year-olds, nothing distracts him from his own demons or shines through.

Until Nara Collins crosses his path. The blonde fascinates and intrigues him, giving him a measure of peace he’s never felt before.

When Ethan discovers there’s more to Nara than she allows others to see, that she might have a unique secret of her own, suddenly his world comes into focus.

This is a great prequel to The Brightest Kind of Darkness series, giving readers insight into Ethan’s mind prior to meeting Nara.  I’ve absolutely adored the series so far, and I was very excited to see Michelle back track a bit, writing the story that leads up to the very first novel… giving us Ethan’s side as he struggles with his own abilities and life, and his immediate connection to Nara. This prequel is very short, but it’s very well written and I highly enjoyed it.  It’s the perfect starting point if you haven’t yet read and of the books in the series as it leads right up to the beginning chapters of The Brightest Kind of Darkness.  I highly suggest picking up this series.  It’s awesome!  Four stars.

4 stars
