Review - Fade by Lisa Mcmann on Kindle
This sequel to Wake (2008) follows dream-catcher Janie as she navigates the treacherous world of dreaming the dreams of others. Janie and her boyfriend, Cabel, use their skills to work undercover investigating teachers suspected of drugging and abusing students at class parties. Janie takes on more than she can handle in cracking the case, and Cabel is unable to intervene to his satisfaction, which strains their relationship. Janie also comes to understand more about her dream-catching ability and the consequences in store for her, most notably a heavy, irreversible physical toll. The series is moving in a darker, more dramatic direction, with Janie facing evil and needing to decide if she can sacrifice her own health for the greater good.
I will start off by saying I know this series will be in my Top Ten for 2010. Below you will see my review on Wake, the 1st book in the trilogy.
I am a total fan of dreams which I know makes me love the books more but Fade also adds mystery, suspense, romance and ghosts.
My expectation for Fade was for Janie to embrace her gift as a dream catcher and it was fully met. I loved how in Fade she embraced it but was also shown the dark side of being a dream catcher.
Again if your interested in the life of a Dream Catcher you should read this series. I finished Wake and wanted to read Fade right away but decided to wait, I personally think they would be amazing together.
I also like the simplicity of the covers, they are very meaningful once you read the book.
I give this one 4 1/2 also but so far I give the Series a 5 - Tea Time Perfection
My Review of Wake
I was pleasantly surprised and can say I loved this book. Can you imagine having a secret like being a dream catcher, WOW. Even though I loved the idea of that power, talk about great entertainment but poor Janie does not understand what is going on and also passes out from the dreams and or nightmares. I hope she embraces her power in the following books, we will see. Janie feels like a freak so she keeps it a secret.
Can you imagine seeing dreams that your best friend, mom, boyfriend, and even school teachers are having. OMG
I will not go into further but if you are intrigued you should totally pick this one up. This was the first time for me to read something and immediately want to read the next. This series, Wake, Fade and Gone will definitely get read this year for me. Loved it! The only reason why I am not giving it 5 stars is because I would have liked more details of the dreams.
