Review: Fade (Dream Catcher #2) by Lisa McMann


Goodreads Description:


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….

My Review

Fade brought about a whole new story to the world of Dream Catchers. Now that Janie’s secret has been revealed to the police, she uses her gift to work alongside them to reveal a school scandal. But as she digs deeper and deeper into the truth, the situation becomes dire and may prove to be too much for Janie’s dream catcher abilities to handle.

The Plot: Fade was gripping throughout, the plot line flowed well and had its share of suspenseful moments. Unlike Wake, Fade had a clear and enthralling climax that wouldn’t let me put down the book. I was glued to the pages as Janie’s undercover business came to a head and all was exposed The main climax was actually pretty frightening and unfortunately very realistic to today’s modern age. It really got me thinking and motivated to keep myself safe.

The Romance: Janie and Cabel’s relationship was pretty rocky and frustrating as the conflict progressed. The deeper Janie got into her undercover job, the farther away she pulled from Cabel, which was very aggravating for the reader. However, Fade was not without its share of romantically satisfying scenes, and in the end their relationship is right where it needs to be.

Final Thoughts: As Fade came to a conclusion, some detrimental information is revealed to Janie regarding her dream catching abilities. Information that will most definitely prompt you to continue on to the third and final book in the Dream Catcher trilogy titled Gone. Overall, Fade was an intriguing and riveting addition to the series and provided for a wonderful romance and plot.

I am currently halfway through book three, review to come.
