I tried to like this book, really I did. The description and overall plot seemed really cool, like something I could sink my imagination into. However, the actual writing was very choppy, incomplete, and sped and slowed with no rhyme or reason. I didn't understand what was going on half the time, and I also didn't understand some characters reactions. There was one scene in which the MC said something totally innocuous to another character, and the other character reacted with harsh anger that made no sense whatsoever. The characters themselves were pretty one dimensional, especially given the books premise of being able to see other people dreams, I feel like the story and the dialog should have been fleshed out a bit more. In the end, this book was a DNF for me.… (plus d'informations)

I was not expecting a YA novel when I started this, but was hooked immediately.

Although not as good as this first one, I really enjoyed this book and the author did a great job wrapping up the story.

The story starts off just where the last one ended, and boy am I glad for that! I love series books that don't skip a whole lot and make you wonder what happened between one book and the next.
Fade starts of with finishing up the whole drug bust thing from Wake, and then moves right into the next case for Janie and Cabel ( they are working for the police). Of course I was on Cabel's side with not wanting Janie to get mixed up with this case, but then I really thought about it and figured that if something like that was going on at my daughter's school, I would want someone there to try and put an end to it.
And really, I won't play the naive parent and pretend that this sort of thing doesn't happen, I know it does, and that Mrs. McMann brought it to light in this book is a huge plus from my end!
Janie is still slipping into others' dreams and she is slowly learning to bring herself out of them. Although she has trouble and can't seem to get out of the nightmares. While working the case of the perv teachers, Janie is given the case files of the previous dream catcher, Miss Stubin; and while reading them she learns more than she wanted to.
As the blurb stated on goodreads, Cabel and Janie are together, but for their undercover work to actually work they have to keep everything a secret. So while they do get to spend some time together, they can't been seen together in public, so everything goes on behind the closed doors of Cabel's house.
Janie jumps right in with the case and very quickly figures out which teacher is her target. That part kinda irked me, I mean heck it took like a week if that for her to get the teacher to make a move, and really; you would like to think that the "adult" would take more time. Anyway, Janie sets it up to be alone with him just to make sure and once she has her confirmation she moves forward and gets everyone in that class ready for the party at the teacher's house ( big red flag there)!! With the party approaching, Cable is getting kinda freaked out, with good reason. While Janie feels that everything will be ok and that nothing will happen to her, she still has a few doubts.
When the party day is there, Janie does everything like she is supposed to, no mysterious drinks, doesn't leave her drink unattended and won't take anything from anyone. But things still go bad for Janie, and while not everything is in great detail, you get enough to know what is going on.
After the party, and everything that goes down; Janie wakes up in the hospital; yeah, you guessed it, she ended up getting drugged anyway. She doesn't really remember what happened at first and even when she does, she doesn't have all the details; which in itself is a good and bad thing. Cabel has a hard time dealing with it and again, they aren't speaking; after he asks for a break.During the break, Janie is lost and confused as to why he would do this to her, and in a sense I feel that she starts to blame herself. With the extra time on her hands she sits down to read the "journal" that Miss Stubin left behind and learns a few things about being a dream catcher, though they aren't really what she wants to know. ANd once she realizes exactly what will happen to her, and a rough time frame in which to expect it, she kinda breaks down.
The story starts to wrap up pretty quickly, all the teachers involved at the party are arrested, and suspended without pay from the school. Cabel and Janie make up as only they can, Janie tells Cabel what to expect with the dream catching and then they are graduating. I'm so glad that I have the next and final book Gone already and can't wait to start reading it.
