Wake, Fade & Gone- by Lisa McMann

Wake Trilogy

Wake synopsis:

For seventeen-year-old Janie, getting sucked into other people’s dreams is getting old. Especially the falling dreams, the naked-but-nobody- notices dreams, and the sex-crazed dreams. Janie’s seen enough fantasy booty to last her a lifetime.

She can’t tell anybody about what she does — they’d never believe her, or worse, they’d think she’s a freak. So Janie lives on the fringe, cursed with an ability she doesn’t want and can’t control.

Then she falls into a gruesome nightmare, one that chills her to the bone. For the first time, Janie is more than a witness to someone else’s twisted psyche. She is a participant….

Fade synopsis:

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….

Gone synopsis:

Janie thought she knew what her future held. And she thought she’d made her peace with it. But she can’t handle dragging Cabel down with her.
She knows he will stay with her, despite what she sees in his dreams. He’s amazing. And she’s a train wreck. Janie sees only one way to give him the life he deserves—she has to disappear. And it’s going to kill them both.
Then a stranger enters her life—and everything unravels. The future Janie once faced now has an ominous twist, and her choices are more dire than she’d ever thought possible. She alone must decide between the lesser of two evils. And time is running out….
My Thoughts:
These books were a little draggy.  They are really fast reads and if you are going to start the trilogy I really suggest that you read all three because you may be disappointed at how McMann ends the first one and may not want to waste your time reading on, but do so because it does get better. I started to really enjoy the second book and the third book was really good, until I got to it’s terrible ending….Pet Peeve!  I really would have liked to see what became of Janie and Cabel in the future, but like the first book McMann leaves you hanging, the disappointing part is that there’s not another book, and I don’t think that McMann plans to continue.  So I guess, I’d suggest this book as a quick read, it was a really good story and I really liked the characters, but it wasn’t great.  I hear there’s a movie being made and it’s supposedly starring Mailey Cyrus, I’m a little exciting to see it!
