Neverwake is the second and final installment in author Amy Plum's Dreamfall duology. The series was partly inspired by the 90s film Flatliners, which was remade into a September 2017 movie. Neverwake picks up right where Dreamfall left off. In case you haven't yet read this series, I'll briefly summarize for you. In the beginning, there were 7 teenagers who agreed to become patients in a sleep research study. The teens include Ca

This series is a duology. This is the last book.

I very much enjoyed the finale. It didn't skip a beat from book one, and begins right where previous book ended.

I think I liked the 2nd book slightly more than the 1st. It definitely keeps your attention and is told from 3 different view points. In my opinion the 3 characters the author used were there right choices and it made the story better, than just a single voice.

There is a bit of disjointedness. Some areas of plot and/or characters don't ge

I'm debating between 3 and 4 stars right now. I'll sleep on it and see what I think tomorrow.

I really enjoyed it though! I'm glad I gave this duology a fair shot. It was great fun.

Amazing conclusion to Dream Fall!! I loved this duology, it was a thrilling page turner that kept me up far past my bedtime to finish! I enjoyed the ending and will definitely be re reading this sometime!
Jessica (a GREAT read)
I finally picked up Amy Plum's conclusion to Dreamfall with Neverwake! I read Dreamfall as an ARC last year and was positively DYING to get my hands on this one! It picks up pretty much where we left off, which was a good thing because things were getting rather intense when we learned that among the teenagers was a psychopathic murderer! Cue the dramatic music!

We already know who the killer is and that's Sinclair. Yet the teenagers are still caught in the dangers and chaos of their nightmares a

I don't know how I feel about this. I realllllllllly liked Dreamfall. Way more than I thought I would (and I thought I'd like it a lot). So I was very excited for this book.

I didn't like it as much as Dreamfall. Not because it wasn't good, but because it just wasn't what I was expecting. The dream portion of this book are much creepier than the first one (in a good way). The characters that remain alive are explored more in depth and given a chance to face their monsters head on, which I think

I think it would have been better if this series had been one longer book instead of two. I found the nightmares seemed to drag on, and honestly they were the same thing every time- it was repetitive and just got boring after a while. Additionally, while in the first book it felt like I was figuring things out along with the characters, in this one it just felt like there was no new information, just 200 pages of waiting for them to catch on.

Fresh off of finishing Dreamfall, I decided to go straight into Neverwake to see what happened after that cliffhanger ending. Even though I had some issues with the first book, in the end I felt ho-hum regarding the entire thing. Dreamfall had great potential, but I don’t know if it translated all that well in book form. Now that I’ve finished reading Neverwake, my feelings remain the same. I love the idea for this series. Seven kids connecting with each other in the dream world and fighting tog ...more

In the sequel to DREAMFALL, Amy Plum continues the story of several teenagers stuck in a dream world in NEVERWAKE. Cata, Ant, Fergus, Sinclair and Remi are the surviving members of the experiment. Trapped in the Dreamfall, they have figured out the pattern of the dreams and the Void. Not only must they survive each terrifying nightmare, they must figure out a way to escape the Dreamfall before death is imminent. New secrets and twists are introduced with each of the characters; not all of them a ...more

Horror show! Or maybe not so much. If Dreamfall was a single book I would have been satisfied. But…book two kind of jinxed it. It was frustratingly nightmares abundant or stretched to nightmares infinity and becoming somewhat boring. If in book one the horrors the characters were exposed to made for an entertaining action, in book two it feels repetitive. The plot brings new intriguing turnovers and some characters die but their sleeping state just won’t end. The psychopath among them is predict ...more

A group of teenagers has been dealing with the endless pain and exhaustion that insomnia has brought into their lives, until the day they begin an experimental treatment, one meant to cure them and take them safely and swiftly into dreamland.
But not being able to sleep seems now like a distant worry, because ever since they descended into a comatose-like state, their nightmares took control of their minds and the darkness of their unconsciousness does not want to let them go.

Dreamfall and Its Sequel Neverwake~~~

This is a review about three weeks in the making. I first read Amy Plum's young adult thriller Dreamfall last month and realized it has a sequel called Neverwake. No problemo, right? The sequel was published a few years ago. Unfortunately my public library did not carry it or its electronic version. I had to request a copy from another library and, though it came from Omaha, I waited a week for it. Not that I'm complaining, mind you. But you'll want to make s

What a great ending! I really enjoyed both books, and I appreciated the fact that Amy Plum keeps her story moving. The characters are great, and I found myself pulling for these teens. I am sure all of my teens who like horror will enjoy these two books! Fun, fast read.

Very good! I liked the whole story as well as the way they wrapped it up with a perfect bow. No ifs and or buts with questions unanswered. I think the author did an incredible job with each character and their nightmares with how they related to their every day lives. The only thing that scared me was reading about the dolls in Ant’s dream. No thank you! That’s too terrifying for me 😂

A decent adventure story with an interesting premise. It was never boring, that is a definite. However, i was hoping for a better payoff but it never came. The horror in this book was truly awful (though interesting in its own way), but I slogged through because I kept waiting for it to mean something. It was wrapped up so hastily, like a “one year later” news brief. That choice made the nightmares seem like a scare fest; just fear and horror for its own sake. The saddest part is that it was set ...more

I love this creepy sequel to Dreamfall! Imagine Freddy Kreuger teaming up with all of your worst nightmares and terrorizing you in a perpetual dream state that you literally get no reprieve from. That would be the perfect synopsis for this book series that follows a group of kids who face their greatest fears, supernatural beings, and killer dreams in a horrifying world that they created in their own minds. Their only chance of survival is a student named Jamie who is working frantically in th ...more
An awesome sequel book and I loved it !!

The story picked up right after the last book, so there isn't any time laps. The difference in this book is that the POV is slight changed and the storyline is more to trying to figure out who is the psychopath. But then again, if you already guess it from the first book, it's still an interesting read because you now can see that person in a different light.

I was so excited for this installment to come out! The first novel ended on quite a cliffhanger.
The description of nightmares was out of this world. I don’t even understand how could the author even conjure such horrific things to write about. Brett’s nightmare especially gave me goosebumps.
The writing style, as well as the description of the Void and the nightmares, is much more vivid than the first installment. I felt like the duology kind of matured in this installment.

Reviewed on Lili Lost in a Book

This book picks up right where the last book left off, with the kids stuck in their nightmares and the cycles changing. The periods of respite they have are getting shorter as the periods with the nightmares are getting longer and longer and eventually they’ll be perpetually in the nightmares without rest. Yikes 😬 One thing I like is that these periods correlate with the REM cycle where they have periods of REM sleep and periods non-REM sleep. That was very interes
2.5 stars It kept me turning the pages cause I wanted to find out how the kids would get out of the dream world, but the end was kind of disappointing. There are some things that happen in the end (which I'll discuss in a spoiler section below), that I just don't think would have happened. It wasn't realistic for the story or the characters. Unfortunately, this part kind of ruined the end for me, cause it was so unrealistic it took me out of the story. If it was done better, I might have liked i ...more
