Once Nara combines her prophetic ability with Ethan’s power to outsmart Fate at his own deadly cat-and-mouse game, she’s more determined than ever to help Ethan learn the meaning behind the raven sword tattoo that suddenly appeared on his back after their confrontation with Fate.

During her quest to uncover the tattoo’s secrets, Nara enlists the help of some new friends and discovers her own surprising connection to Ethan.

While Nara digs deeper into the mystery, her desire for answers leads her down a dangerous path full of powerful and ruthless enemies. Swept into an age-old battle, Nara quickly learns that keeping one’s enemies close can be a necessary evil, making an intangible enemy she can control far more preferable to the human enemies she can’t.

**WARNING: Spoiler alert if you have read Brightest Kind of Darkness**

What happens to Nara now that she doesn’t have to worry about Fate anymore?  When will Ethan come back to her?  These are questions that plague Nara in Lucid.  Ethan had left to go to Michigan to be with his parents to try to salvage that relationship.  This is important to him.  He feels that he can go and do this because Nara is “safe.”  Nara doesn’t like that he is gone and misses him terribly, but she understands why he needed to go.   She doesn’t want to tell him the truth about what is going on because then that will pull him away from his current mission.

While he is gone, Nara is engrossed in figuring out what the ravens and Ethan’s feather tattoos mean.  She does a lot of research and writes everything in Ethan’s journal.   She even has kinda “adopted” a raven she calls “Patch,” who shows up at her window every morning.  She hasn’t told anyone about her special gift except her Aunt and Gran.  She hasn't even told her best friend, Lainey, that she dreams what will happen in the next day.  She has learned not to interfere, but sometimes that cannot be helped. 

There are some new characters in Lucid.  First, there is Harper.  She is a student at Nara’s high school who previously was home schooled.  I’m not too sure about her character.  At times, she seems too eager.  Then there is Drystan, who is a Welsh foreign exchange student.  He figures out that Nara has some sort of power, but doesn’t know what.  He also figures out that she is in danger and saves her life on multiple occasions. 

What is going on between Nara and Drystan while Ethan is away?  Will Ethan and Nara get back together?  Why is Nara is danger?  Why doesn’t Ethan want her to do any research on his raven tattoo?  There are multiple plot points in Lucid and many things are going on at the same time.  I never felt that it was too much to keep track of though.  I like Ethan and was kinda sad that he wasn’t in the majority of the book.  Even though Nara is the main character, I wanted to see more of Ethan.  Having said that, I fell for Drystan.  He is nice, has an accent and helps Nara.  I thought that the writing was easy to follow.  The end of the book made me want to read the third book and I cannot wait until that comes out.
