Pretty Dark Nothing
And here I am once again with my heart broken. This book is a mean one. I thought maybe a happily ever after would be possible after the whole mess it made me go through , but nope, it practically screamed “In your dreams!” at me.
I have to say, Pretty Dark Nothing took me into a great yet unexpected ride. The characters were believable, the plot alluring and the pace it was written was perfect for it to move just right. This book had this crazy pull on me that demanded my undivided attention right from the start. I needed to know what was happening to Quinn and why was she being disturbed by shadows and demons when she falls asleep. I also wanted to know more about Aaron, about his ability and why he had this intense crush for Quinn.
To be honest, I liked Aaron a bit more than I liked Quinn. I think it’s because she wasted a lot of time thinking and hanging on to the slim possibility of getting back together with her ex instead of moving on, but she was nice, so I couldn’t dislike her. I just wish we had more insight of Aaron and his ability instead of centering almost all the time on Quinn.
In order to understand what the whole deal is about, I’m afraid you have to push to the very end if you want to click some puzzle pieces together. The “aha” moment for me was short-lived after that because well, THAT thing happens. And then it was over. So yeah, cliffhangers are my enemies right now. This one in particular left me in a desperate need for the second book because maybe there’s a miracle that will ease my heart from the shock it caused.

About the Book:
It’s time to choose: Love or lies, faith or fear, darkness or destiny.
Seventeen-year-old Quinn hasn’t slept a full night in twenty-three days. She’s terrified of the demons that stalk her dreams, pull her into a deep dark nothingness and whisper hauntingly of her death. Exhausted, Quinn dozes off in the school hallway, and Aaron, an amnesiac with a psychic ability, accidentally enters her nightmare. If Quinn can learn to trust her heart, and Aaron can discover the secret locked away in his fragile memory, their combined power could banish the darkness back to the underworld for good. That is, unless the demons kill them first.
