Review: Fade by Lisa McMann
Note: This is the second book in the Wake trilogy (see my review of book #1 here) though I do try my best in all my reviews to keep them spoiler free.
Janie & Cabel have been assigned to a case together. Based on calls on the schools hotline, it appears there may be a sexual predator at school. Cabel continues watching the staff and students while Janie uses her ability to get inside dreams to see if she can uncover any clues.
After being sucked into WAKE, I was so excited to devour this. Again, it was another quick read but I didn't get the same rush while reading this. While WAKE was all about Caleb & Janie's relationship as well as Janie finally sharing her ability with someone & trying to understand it, this book is focused on the case. I didn't see much in terms of character development and the case wasn't all that exciting. I was also hoping to learn a bit more about secondary characters (her mom, Miss Stubin) and learn more about the side-effects of dream-catching...I kept flipping pages hoping but never did. At the end, I was ready to bite into GONE, book #3, knowing this was the final book & I may finally get my answers :)
