Review: Ethan (Brightest Kind of Darkness 0.5) by P.T. Michelle

Ethan (Brightest Kind of Darkness 0.5)
by P.T. Michelle
Published:  January 11, 2013
Amazon  |  Barnes and Noble  |  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.

Note: Ethan is a novella PREQUEL to Brightest Kind of Darkness. This story will give some of Ethan’s background and lead up until the day he tells Nara there’s a bomb in the school.

My Thoughts:  I am such a fan of this series and I fell in love with Ethan in book one, Brightest Kind of Darkness.  In book two, Lucid, we didn't actually get to see that much of him, but his presence was there nonetheless.  The first two books are told from Nara's point of view, so I was really excited to be able to read this novella, in Ethan's point of view, enabling you to get to know him, what he was thinking, and what went on from his perspective before and up unto the bombing in the beginning of book one.  There is such a drastic change in Ethan from the beginning of Brightest Kind of Darkness and the ending of Lucid.  Ethan has encountered so much darkness, so much pain, and the bright spot in all of that is Nara.  I loved seeing how he felt about her, even from the beginning.  She is his light.  Ethan is an enigma, which becomes obvious as the series progresses.  He is also so very hot, dark, mysterious, powerful, and dominating.  His is a dark world, and we've only begun to see what it is about.   The next book in the series, Destiny, will release in October, and I cannot wait to get my hands on it and find out more about Ethan.  If you haven't read this series, it is truly wonderful and I definitely would recommend it.

  1. I read this one a little bit ago as well (the only one I have read!) and I liked it too, enough to continue with the series.

    1. It is really a good series. I think you would enjoy it. The first book is free right now to.

  2. I'm looking forward to Destiny too!


Thanks for your comments. I love hearing from you!
