Lucid completely upped the thrills and dangers. It was thrilling around every turn and I was hanging on to every word! I absolutely loved Brightest Kind Of Darkness, and Lucid took us even more into Nara and Ethan's world and I absolutely loved it.Lucid starts off where we left off in Brightest Kind Of Darkness. Ethan has gone off to smooth things over with his parents and figure out more about himself. All the while, Nara is still home and trying to sift through her own powers and her connection to Ethan. As Nara searches more about herself and Ethan, violent things start to happen to her. Thank goodness for new friend Drystan, and her old friends who are there to help her. But, when things take a dramatic turn, Nara will have to use all her strength and Ethan's to finally figure out mystery around her mysterious power.I have to admit, I really missed Ethan in this installment. I totally fell in love with him in Brightest Kind Of Darkness. Let me just say though, when he finally "shows up" in Lucid... he really shows up with a bang and I cannot WAIT to find out more in the third book. In his place (well sort-of) we get a new hot fella, Drystan. First off, completely smoking hot name. Second... accent! Oh yeah this boy has the looks, the accent, fighter skills, and honestly he is so protective and a sweetheart. I really started to fall for Drystan as we got to know him more. I loved how he was there for Nara when Ethan wasn't. BUT I am still an Ethan girl! Another character who is back and always there for Nara is her best friend Lainey... and oh gods I love her! She is funny and protective, and totally all you could want in a best friend.Also... shout out to Patch! I freaking love that bird.Lucid took Nara's journey through a whole new bunch of twists and turns I wasn't really anticipating. She kept so much strength through out this book. Her strength while Ethan is away, her strength with her friends, her strength with her family, her strength through the dramatic events... I was very impressed. With how Lucid ended, I am SO excited for book three. I cannot wait to see where everything goes. And, I adore how P.T. upped the thrills and intense moments. This series just keeps getting better and better and I need book three!
