Nara Collins is an average sixteen-year-old, with one exception: every night she dreams the events of the following day. Due to an incident in her past, Nara avoids using her special gift to change fate…until she dreams a future she can’t ignore.

After Nara prevents a bombing at Blue Ridge High, her ability to see the future starts to fade, while people at school are suddenly being injured at an unusually high rate.

Grappling with her diminishing powers and the need to prevent another disaster, Nara meets Ethan Harris, a mysterious loner who seems to understand her better than anyone. Ethan and Nara forge an irresistible connection, but as their relationship heats up, so do her questions about his dark past.

~ 5/5 Roses ~

Classic good against evil story, but with a new twist.  This story is just wonderful- a refreshing take on an old plot.  This book has everything you could want in a story- mystery, wonder, suspense, romance, sports, courage, and trials that test friendships and family to their limits..what's not to love?!

I, for one, loved this book.  Most of the stories out there these days are good vs. evil, in some way or another.  What if the evil, is Fate itself?  How would you fight Fate, especially when it's holding a personal grudge against you, and has become deadly dangerous?  In this story, Nara and Ethan do just that. 

The special gift Nara has is certainly an interesting one, and the mystery surrounding Ethan is intriguing and exciting- he certainly has more to him than we know about yet.  I love their relationship and personal growth as the story progresses.  They're both lost and lonely, and find that they truly need each other, more than either of them can imagine.

I can't wait to read the sequel, and find out more about each of these characters, and see what happens next, in their fight with Fate.  I'd certainly recommend this book- it's exciting, and certainly leaves you wanting more!

*I was given an eCopy of this book, from the author, to read in exchange for an honest review.

Patrice Michelle (P.T. Michelle)

Born and raised in the Southeast, award-winning author Patrice Michelle gave up her financial calculator for a keyboard and never looked back. Thanks to an open-minded family who taught her that life isn't as black and white as we're conditioned to believe, she pens her novels with the belief that various shades of gray are a lot more interesting. She's a natural with a point-and-shoot camera, likes to fiddle with graphic design and, to the relief of her family, strums her guitar to an audience of one.

Well, that's the condensed, back-of-the-book bio about moi, anyway. :o)

As for becoming a writer...I wasn't one of those writers scribbling stories as soon as I could write, but I was a voracious reader. At the age of fifteen, I told my mom after I'd finished reading a book, "One day, I want to be the one who writes the kind of books readers think about long after they've closed it." 

As Patrice Michelle, I write dark, sexy, action-packed paranormal and contemporary romances.

As P.T. Michelle, I write dark paranormal YA books. 

New York Times, USA Today, and International Bestselling author of the In The Shadows and Brightest Kind of Darkness series
