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

How sad and moving is this book? I loved it so much more than its predecessor and the worst thing about is that I am refusing to read the conclusion to the trilogy: Gone. I feel that the stage I am at seems to need some kind of conclusion and I desperately want to read more but, on the other hand, I refuse to ruin a story that has so far held me captivated by its depth of emotion and well-built mysteries with an ending that is mediocre.

And I have read enough reviews by trusted goodreads friends

I love this series. I have been waiting to read Fade since I sped through the last few pages of Wake, and I was not disappointed. Everything that I attracted me to the first novel is still there, simplicity of McMann’s writing, quick pace and realistic dialogue.

Fade divulges more about Janie’s ability which was fascinating and unimaginable at the same time. The unique relationship between Janie and Cabel is also taken to a new level.

I usually don’t comment on the content within a novel, but I

Second reading of "Fade" confirmed that this second book is the best in the series. Not only does it develop marvelously the relationship between Janie and Cabel (which was a central theme of "Wake"), but it also brings in an excellent mystery story line. The case Cabe and Janie work on in this book is dark and disturbing and the final party scene is remarkable in its intensity and realness.

Now, having read "Gone," the final book in the trilogy, I strongly recommend to stop reading the series a

Като цяло започнаха да се случват по-интересни неща в поредицата. Джейни все още няма контрол върху силите си и научава лошите странични ефекти от дарбата си. Да видим, какво ще стане в последната част :)

"Fade" continues the story begun in "Wake" and if you try reading this one first, you're likely to be a little confused.

In "Wake," we met Janie, a girl with the ability to be a dream-catcher. This means she can enter other people's dreams. "Wake" was about Janie coming to terms with her new power. "Fade" is concerned with Janie learning the responsible use of her power and the consequences of being a dream-catcher. It sets up things for a third and final installment of the series that, quite fra

As one case closes another one opens. Janie Hannagan returns, this time using her abilities of being swept into a person's dreams to solve a sex scandal at her school.

Several calls have been made on Fieldridge High School's anonymous phone line. Although inaudible at times, the messages result in the assumption that certain faculty members and students at Fieldridge have been fooling around. So Captain and her agents use their

Okay, so I liked this one a tad more than I liked Wake. But only because it actually had some semblance of a plot and the writing was a bit tighter.

If only the plot wasn’t so fucking ridiculous and outlandish. I get that this is a paranormal book, so some disbelief is required, but it is just so far removed from reality.

I'm reviewing this one after reading the whole trilogy. There won't be any spoilers but that fact shapes the way I see this book, making me like it more.

This trilogy is short, very short. I'm sure that the word count of the three books added together barely exceeds that of most average length novels. So it's easier for me to think of this trilogy as just one book with three parts. Fade reads like all second parts do in this kind of books—you already have the events and players set up in part one

So how's this for awesome?

In a couple of weeks, I'm going to be doing a reading alongside Lisa McMann. Are you excited? I'm excited.

I'm so stoked, 'cause she's amazing.

Take this book, for example. A girl with an uncanny ability to get inside of people's dreams is hired by the local police department to bust a sexual predator in her high school?

Read it, and, if you live in Arizona, come to Evermore Nevermore on June 10 to hear her read. And stay to listen to me talk about eggs and shit for a whi

Lisa McMann blew me away with this second book. I was uncontrollably gripping the book till the last word. Janie's story unravels--literally. She gets into some compromising situations and I was left breathless, panting after--anticipating the outcomes.

I was wonderfully absorbed into Cabel's emotional state. His flaws--his insecurities, history and his want for safety sets him apart and makes him so wonderfully real and lovable. His battle with Janie's actions, her desires and her hopes and drea

This sequel to McMann's young adult novel "Wake" improves on the former with more focused prose and more attention given to the budding romance between "dream catcher" Janie and her narc-in-hiding boyfriend, Cabel. If there's a third wheel to this relationship, it's the couple's employer, Police Captain Fran Komisky, who serves on occasion as surrogate parental figure and relationship counselor, providing all the well intentioned tough-love you can stand.

The plot itself is fairly uncomplicated b

Beware Spoilers!


The Writing Style

Again, the narrative is in a choppy, odd,staccatoprose that the reader will either enjoy or despise. I personally think it works for this series of books, but there were a few times I arched an eyebrow. Odd random facts are delivered, such as what brand someone is wearing, for no obvious reason. Since the writing-style doesn't le

You should read WAKE before you pick up FADE. You’ll understand the story much better.

My review may be a little vague, but I don’t want to give away any SPOILERS for WAKE.

Janie still has a difficult life. Her mother still drinks and hides in her bedroom to the extent that she doesn’t have any interest in what Janie does. Janie is the adult in house - making sure there are groceries in the house and taking care of the other day to day household chores.

The one bright spot in her life is Cabel. She

Tam kıvamında bir kitaptı, yine değişik bir kurgu normal yaşantının zorluklarıyla harmanlanmış, bu da kitabı değerli yapan :))) Özellikle ilk kitaba göre rüya yakalayıcılığıyla ilgili daha fazla şey öğreniyoruz ve ne yalan söyleyeyim Janie'nin bundan sonra ne yapacağını çok merak ediyorum.

I read Wake about a month ago and finished Fade not long after, but I've been waiting to post my review. Unlike every other book blogger, I didn't love these books and I wanted to make sure I could express why.
Wake has an interesting premise, but it seems like all the dreams Janie falls into are sex dreams or nightmares that are memories. I thought this was an easy way out. It seemed too easy how the dreams were related to real life-where was the dream interpretation? The hiding spot for a drug

This was my review of Wake (to which Fade is a sequel):

"In some ways, this book reads like it was written by a very, very smart teenager on the older/more mature side, i.e. 17-18, has been in love, and experienced other kinds of deep vulnerability as well--basically like the book's heroine, perhaps in a few years or in a self-reflexive place.

It also reads like good fanfic, in the following ways:

a) written in close third-person present tense, which aligns quite well with the plot/story world's fo

I may or may not have finished the last 100 pages of this book with a torch light in the middle of the night. That’s a big enough of a clue to tell you how much I enjoyed this book.

It blows my mind how Lisa McMann managed to write two amazing books for the same series, while I’m sitting here, staring at both the books figuring out which I liked better.

I thoroughly loved this book.

In Fade we see the action and suspense pick up a little more as Cabel and Jennie track down a sexual predator.

The relationship between these two misfits is one of the sweetest I've ever read.

I don't think I'll be able to bring myself to read Gone considering how many are so completely unsatisfied with it, but as it is, Wake and Fade are brilliant.

Bitter sweet ending, slightly better than the first in the sense there was more excitement

All the date rape drug and teacher stuff was sad and distressing for me the scenes were you realized she's getting high but doesn't know we're intense

I'm giving this 2 stars because it was less boring than the first, but still a weak book :( .

Her dream catcher ability had nothing on this case. The only time she uses it is when Stubin tells her what she needs to do. That means she's not even using her powers, is just helped by her connection with the ghost. Her ability had no impact on the story.

She's using the usual YA drama. Couple gets together, misunderstanding, breaking up/almost breaking up, misunderstanding clear, smooch... Caleb was a

Lisa McMann's Fade picks up right where Wake left off. Janie and Cabel are now both working for the Captain as undercover narcs at their high school. This time though, the case involves a secret sex ring that the Captain wants to uncover by using Janie as bait. This naturally upsets her boyfriend Cabel, precipitating an ongoing tension between them that lasts for the rest of the book, uncovering a number of other insecurities along the way. Cabel and Janie's relationship development remains rive ...more

První díl světově oblíbené série jsem si náramně užila. Kniha mě dostala svou syrovostí, emočností a hlavně naprosto ojedinělým stylem vyprávění. Přece jenom se mi do rukou dříve nedostala kniha, která by prostřednictvím krátkých úderných "zápisů" popisovala, co se vlastně událo.

Po všech knihách, kde hrdinky získají nějakou superschopnost, anebo jsou náramně superdůležité, načež jsou nuceny si vybírat ze dvou (někdy i více) nápadníků, je tahle série příjemnou vzpruhou.

Once again, this was a quick read, taking me only a few short hours to finish, and yet another of McMann's reads that I couldn't put down. So far, three for three.

The basis of the story is, of course, the same considering it's the sequel to Wake. In this second edition Janie is still learning how to handle her dreams, how to control them, pull out of them, etc. But she is noticing some nasty side-effects that she'd rather not face.
