book thoughts: Fade by Lisa McMann


Lisa McMann

Janie is a “dream catcher”.  Since discovering this ability in Wake, she has spent a bit of time training herself to control her power.  Fade is the next step in that story.

While I enjoyed Wake, I think I expected more from Fade.  Like Wake, McMann uses her very quick and readable style to move the story along, and the reader can tear through the book in a matter of hours.  I felt like she had some interesting ideas, but the ending was a little over the top.  Even after you get over the idea that a person’s dreams will some how lead to the solving of a crime, the last few chapters just ended up in a very weird place. 

It feels like McMann is probably setting up a third book (or more?) for this series because of what is revealed at the end of this book.
