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.


When the author sent me the request for a review of her book, the first thing that got my attention was the cover she attached by email. Absolutely BEAUTIFUL. But to be honest I wouldn't have expected the cover to reflect so perfectly the real book's soul. Covers can be tricky, you think they have a strong connection with the story (that would be their role after all), but sometimes after reading the book you find yourself pretty upset about them... Obviously this is not the case and I couldn't agree more with that beautiful image! 

Having said that, the story intrigued me so much that I don't hide the fact that after the final scene I was in a desperate mood for a book two! Ok, I still am! The fact that I live in a place full of ravens (and very beautiful ones) surely helped me a lot to have a perfect vivid vison/dream about the whole story, but the "Final Destination" atmosphere is probably what I really loved the most. Its strong power permeate the book and it's what really kept my attention focused on the events. Thank God because Ethan with his charming attitude was distracting me too much... I loved the connection between him and Nara and the way they interacted, and I love even more the fact that under certain aspects Ethan is still a mysterious character... I think it's fascinating when you don't know all at once but you find out more and more book after book. Isn't it what keeps you desiring and dreaming so much about a character?

I'm very happy that P.T. Michelle contacted me and I thank her one more time for the opportunity to review her dreamy book, I just hope there will be a second instalment soon because the curiosity is killing me!
