SOME NIGHTMARES NEVER END.

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 will not, for the sake of everyone's time and opinions on the matter, go back into the rant about the writing style. Everyone has their own thing, I should just except it - even if it does irk me to no end and ultimately make me read a book slower from frustration. Having said that, since I read Wake before this, I knew what I was getting into by continuing with the series - so it was a little easier this time around to get over it.

This book basically picks up where the last book left off. In this one, Janie actually starts working with Cabel's boss to help bust some pretty foul things going on in their school. In the midst of that, Cabel starts to get a little distant as Janie is learning more and more about her abilities. Like all good things, her "gift" comes at a very high price, and Janie's having a very hard time dealing with her fate. Like any girl who has a mission, Janie sucks up her emotions and puts them aside while she goes undercover at her school - as well as slipping into dreams, obviously.

The storyline to this one, in my opinion, was a lot heavier and had more meat to it. While I did enjoy Wake, I thought this one was better for the simple fact that you had more to the story than just Janie going around and getting into peoples' dreams. The relationship between Janie and Cabel grew beautifully throughout the book. It was very believable and I'm also impressed with how the author dealt with the sex issue between the couple in the book - it was more implied than getting too graphic with it. I would have liked to see a little more interaction between Janie and Carrie though, it seemed like Janie was a little too focused on the case. A good friend always makes time for those that have been there for her.

Fade, Dream Catcher (Wake) trilogy book two, Janie and Cabel struggle to keep up with Janie's ability to catch other people's dreams. But a what cost? She would find out on a green notebook written by Martha Stubin, another fellow dream catcher. The Story picks up shorty after Wake ended. Janie and Cabel are on a new and more dangerous mission, to catch a sexual predator(s) lurking on Fieldridge High. With this case, Cabel finds himself overprotective of Janie. He, who is foreign to love, doesn't want anything bad happening to her; she is his safety net. He has to face so hidden battles and demons. Janie's life will take a dramatic turn when she discover what happens to dream catchers. Their struggles will put their relationship on a cliff. Should they fight to stay on it or should they decide to jump and end what they have?

Fade is a bit different than Wake; it deals with tougher, darker subjects, like sexual predators, alcoholism, life changing decisions, etc. With is why, I love it even more. Janie seems more mature. I like how she looks up to Captain, like the interested adult every teen needs. The writing continues to be wonderful like the flow of a river. It just so easy to read is like your breathing the story. I really enjoy the development of Janie and Cabel's relationship. It left be breathless and warm and fussy inside. Thou, I want to know more about the other characters, like Janie's mom, she just seems nonexistent, but is looks like she has potential to be something more then the drunk mother who doesn't knows nothing. Now, her father, who is he? where has he been all these years? McMann continues to impress me with her creativity, love her writing style. I so want to read Gone. 4.5 Stars

I want to say I hated this but it wasn't all bad. What I hated most though was Cabel and Janie's relationship. Just downright cheesy and twilight-ish. I don't even know why I read this one expect I really wanted to know what happens..So I'm resisting the temptation to read the next one because it will probably be just as bad as this one..
