Gone by Lisa McMann

Gone (Wake, Bk 3) by Lisa McMann

The third and final book in the paranormal teen series that includes The New York Times bestseller Wake and Fade.

Not much of description there, is there?  Anyway, before I begin, I must say thank you to James the Book Chic for hosting the ARC tour!

So the book!  This was a really good conclusion to the series.  This book was much more introspective on Janie’s part.  I kind of missed the mysteries from the first two books, but I really liked weighing the options that lay before Janie along with her.  Without being spoilery, there was a big storyline that I didn’t expect, but I really liked the way it worked out.  Sort of.  This book made me cry a couple times and made me think, which I really like in a book.  I will kind of miss this series – I really enjoyed all three books!

Ever since she was eight years old, high school student Janie Hannagan has been uncontrollably drawn into other people’s dreams, but it is not until she befriends an elderly nursing home patient and becomes involved with an enigmatic fellow-student that she discovers her true power.

Fade (Dream Catchers, Bk 2) by Lisa McMann

For Janie and Cabel, real life is getting tougher than the dreams. They’re just trying to carve out a little (secret) time together, but no such luck.
Disturbing things are happening at Fieldridge High, yet nobody’s talking. When Janie taps into a classmate’s violent nightmares, the case finally breaks open — but nothing goes as planned. Not even close. Janie’s in way over her head, and Cabe’s shocking behavior has grave consequences for them both.
Worse yet, Janie learns the truth about herself and her ability — and it’s bleak. Seriously, brutally bleak. Not only is her fate as a dream catcher sealed, but what’s to come is way darker than she’d feared….

I’ve been slack about posting since I started the PBS Challenge, so I am doing a two for one post.  I read these books back to back in one evening, so they’re kind of mixed together in my head anyway. :)

I’ve had Wake on my shelf for a while, but the description was never enough to get me to pick it up.  I am sending Wake and Fade to a friend, so I finally read it this weekend.  Turns out I really liked it!  I thought both books were really good.  I liked Wake a little more than Fade.  I liked the set up and the story in Wake a lot, plus Fade was a little angsty.  I usually all about the angst, but this time I was a little annoyed and wanted them to get on with it.  I liked Janie and Cabel a lot.

Overall, I liked both books and can’t wait for Gone, the third book in the series to come out.
