Blog Tour and Giveaway: Pretty Dark Nothing by Heather L. Reid

by Heather L. Reid
Publication Date: April 23, 2012

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.


I really liked the characters in Pretty Dark Nothing. Our main leads Aaron and Quinn are both very strong and likeable. Reese and Marcus were hilarious and definitely supportive friends.
Quinn has the perfect life, good grades, captain of the cheer squad and perfect boyfriend. Things start crumbling rapidly starting with her break up with Jeff. I don’t even know how to describe what Quinn goes through. I felt myself addicted to reading it like a drug hoping to see some light at the end of the tunnel. Quinn’s life is completely spinning out of control and she does actually try to fight off the demons whispering in her ear. She is sleep deprived, popping pills and drinking red bull like it’s her best friend. At first the demons stay a little more at bay, only attacking her in her dreams but then they become more aggressive and keep pushing and picking away at her to make her break.
Aaron is our knight in shining armor. I really liked his character and sometimes I would get frustrated that he wouldn’t try to save Quinn but it was understandable. She would treat him like crap and then find herself in a crazy situation, in the beginning Aaron would save her without thinking about it but then as the book goes on he gets less and less willing to just jump in.  He has the brooding musician thing going for him but he just comes off as an all-around good guy. Aaron has a near death experience that causes him to lose all his memories, in place of them he ends up with some powers. Not like he is shooting lightning bolts or anything but he is able to reach into people’s minds, send them kind of calming vibes and things. With Quinn the connection seems to run even deeper this is part of why he can’t seem to stay away from her.
Marcus and Reese would often steal the show. They would sometimes say really outrageous things that would take the edge off the craziness. There were times that I would feel like I was losing my mind along with Quinn and they were kind of the grounding characters. Like oh ya there are normal people who don’t have demons following them around.
There is sort of a love triangle in the sense that Quinn is still hung up on her ex when she meets Aaron. She can’t deny she is drawn to him but she has this long history with Jeff and he broke her heart in a way with no closure. When things come to light about the breakup I’m not surprised, I suspected something along the lines. It’s kind of interesting though how it comes out.
I’m not sure how I felt about the ending. I’m still up in the air about it. It made sense, it explained some things but there is a part that made my heart do a little flip. The song “Watched you Fall” by Meredith Brooks popped up in my brain as the book was reaching its end point.
The book moved fast and I never felt like it got dull. There are some very cute moments with Aaron and Quinn and I loved that it was from both of their perspectives. The demons were so creepy, I really wanted to crawl inside the book and help Quinn in some way. If you are looking for something on the darker side I would definitely recommend it.
