After finishing Lucid the one thing that stood out for me that I would like to have known before reading it, is that Ethan is basically not in the book until the last 20%. I have to say I missed Ethan. Ethan is such a wonderful hero, so protective of Nara, and I was constantly thinking when is he coming back. I wanted more of that beautiful sweet romance that was present in BKoD. The romance is still there in Lucid, but due to the Ethan's absence it has a much different feel about it. But boy is it GREAT when Ethan does return.
Overall Lucid was a great second book, but not quite as good as the first. A good test of the second book is do I want to read the third? Yes, I am eagerly awaiting the next one.
Will I read it again? Yes
Would I recommend it? Yes
But I have an excuse: When I first read Brightest Kind of Darkness, I was going through a YA phase and absolutely fell in love with Nara and Ethan and every other bit of awesomeness packed into the novel. I put Lucid on my to-read list, but by the time it came out I had moved on to some other type of phase (I believe it was zombies).
Lucid picks up prettymuch where Brightest Kind of Darkness left off. The books easily flow into one another, but Lucid focuses more on Nara's development. In fact, Ethan is absent for most of the story. At first, that kind of bummed me out because Ethan was one of the few YA boy toys I actually liked, but the addition of a few new characters (primarily Drystan, an exchange student from Wales) coupled with a solid and fast-paced plot filled the Ethan void. I cringe as I say this, but I almost liked it better without him.
So, the break down...
Thing that had me all "hell yeah!":
Nara's fantabulous character development. I didn't think I could like her more than I already did, but Lucid proved me wrong. She is developing into a total kick-butt chick -- actually, with her training sessions with Drystan, a chick that can actually kick butt. I won't give the end away, but I will say it was both surprising and a perfect culmination to the events leading up to it. And it totally made me want to read more.
Drystan was a pretty cool dude. When he was first introduced, I was on the fence. He seemed cocky and potentially dangerous. I think he still might be dangerous (or has the potential for it), but the dynamic between him and Nora was entertaining to read.Read more ›
This novel was just as well written as the first, and was full of just as many twists and surprises - keeping me on my toes the entire time. Nara and Ethan's relationship develops further in this book, which I loved. The romance wasn't to syrupy or corny - like some young adult novels can be. I found it to be very sweet and swoon-worthy. The interesting plot concerning Fate and the battle that they are fighting in is very intricate and well detailed - which really drew me in and had me invested deeply in the story. I still find the concept of fighting Fate as an entity fascinating and the author definitely keeps the mystery and action charged throughout the novel. The reader is able to see obvious character growth in this second novel, and the storyline only gets more interesting as the series progresses. I will definitely be eagerly awaiting the next book in the series to be released. Highly recommended for fans of paranormal fiction that is outside the norm.
Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
