Pretty Dark Nothing
by Heather L. Reid
Expected Publication: April 2013
Amazon:Pretty Dark Nothing
It’s been twenty three days since Quinn has slept for more than minutes at a time. Demons have invaded her dreams, stalking her, and whispering of her death. The lack of sleep and crippling fear are ruining her life. Energy drinks and caffeine pills don’t make a dent. When Quinn dozes off in the school hallway, Aaron, an amnesiac with a psychic ability, accidentally enters her nightmare. The demons are determined to keep them apart, and Aaron from discovering the secret locked away in his memory. Together, they could banish the darkness back to the underworld for good. That is, unless the demons kill them first
Quinn hadn’t slept a full night in twenty-three days. She couldn’t. Not with them waiting on the dream side.
Thanks to Netgalley and Heather Reid, for sending a copy of this ARC to me for an honest review.
This story really drew me in. It is not the typical novel that I read as I like a strong female heroine, and Quinn is the opposite. Quinn was the Popular girl, with all the friends and the Jock boyfriend, until he dumped her for the pretty cheerleader. Quinn has trouble accepting that their relationship is over. Jeffs new girlfriend Kirsten likes nothing more than to bully and humiliate Quinn, this is not the worst of it, Quinn is haunted by demons, they fill her head with dark and frightening thoughts which makes Quinn and everyone around her think she is losing her mind.
Although Quinn is not a Kick Ass woman, she is a realistic one, at times you want to scream, cry and laugh with her. She comes from a background where her father left and started another family and a mother that works all the time. Pretty dark nothing is a very touching story about a young girl tormented and confused I would recommend this novel to any teenage girls.
Told from Two point of views this makes this story even more unique. First we have Quinn and then we have Aaron. Aaron is a teenage boy who went through a life changing tragedy. His mother and baby sister were killed in a car crash, and Aaron was the sole survivor. He is left with psychic abilities and a broken home. Aaron is inexplicably drawn to Quinn when everyone else is turning their back on her as she slowly loses her mind.
Together Aaron and Quinn face an epic battle of good vs evil, I am looking forward to the next installment.
