Fade by Lisa McMann

Janie is getting the hang of her ability as a dream catcher. Yep, she still gets sucked into people's dreams, but she now has the ability of controlling for how long she's in there. She can pull out easier and feels more in control of the situation. Although this takes a heavy toll on her body, she enjoys working undercover with Cabel and the police and has found a good use for her gift.

When Captain asks her to go undercover and help in uncovering if certain teachers have been getting a little frisky with the students at Fieldridge High, a definite strain is put on her relationship with Cabe, but she eventually puts her foot down and accepts the challenge. Then there's the box of documents that Captain hands her from the late Martha Stubin, with more information on her dream catching powers and exactly what fate awaits her if she is to use her gift for the good of mankind. And, needless to say, her future is much darker then she expected.

I can't rave enough about this series. I am 100% hooked on Janie and Cabel. I still ache for Janie - her mother continues drinking, has no idea what's going on outside the house, much less cares for what's going on with Janie. Her only source of happiness is Cabel and their sizzling romance.

Ms. McMann definitely delivers with Fade. Fade is suspenseful, thrilling, romantic and dark (because yes, we are dealing with sex, drugs and alcohol). The characters are real, the story is engaging and the anticipation, of whether Janie will crack the case or not, is intense.

Fade is the second in the Dream Catcher series. I do recommend that you read Wake first just because Fade is so fast-paced you might be a little confused as to what is going on. Also note, there are a few cuss words and also take into consideration that this story is about a sexual predator - so definitely recommended more for older teens or, at the very least, parental discretion is advised.

Loved it, highly recommend it! Can't wait to get my little hands on the final installment, GONE.

You know I was intrigued by the book covers of this series, but this is probably the first review I've read on any of the books. I wasn't impressed by the back of the book blurbs, but your review makes me want to give the series a try. Thanks!

I've heard so much great stuff about this whole series and I've been dying to get started on the first book. The next time I'm at the library, guess what I'll be looking for?
