Fade by Lisa McMann

Summary Provided by Goodreads:
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....

My Thoughts:
I loved Wake, the first book in the Dream Catcher trilogy. Part of me didn’t even want to read Fade because I figured it wouldn’t compare to the first one. Fade completely took me by surprise! I loved it. It was so much better then Wake and as soon as I finished, I was ready to read it again!

Fade begins a few weeks after the events of Wake. Cabel and Janie are officially a couple (well in secret anyway) and are both working for the FBI. When the Captain tells them they need to find a sex predator at their school, Janie has to be put herself in danger to catch him. I was not able to turn the pages quick enough. Fade was very intense and I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen.

What I love most about these books is Cabel and Janie’s relationship. They are so adorable and I love how we see the two of them continue to heal and deal with their pasts. For the first time in both of their lives someone actually loves them and cares about them. Cabel is wonderful. I love him. After everything he has gone through with his abusive father, he is still the perfect guy. He’s so sweet and I can not get enough of him! He can’t stand to let anything happen to Janie. This case that him and Janie were working on was very hard for him, and I was able to feel his frustrations, anger and pain. 

I also love Janie. She is a wonderful protagonist. In Fade, she learns a lot more about her ability and how it will affect her. Instead of moping and being dramatic (and in this case, she totally has the right to be dramatic) she doesn’t let it stop her from using her ability to help others. She will do what she has to do until she literally can’t anymore.

This is turning out to be a wonderful series and I can’t wait to read Gone, the last Dream Catcher story.
