TEEN: Fade - Lisa McMann


For Janie and Cabel, real life is getting tougher than the dreams. 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 behaviour has grave consequences for them both. And if that isn't bad enough, Janie has discovered Martha Stubin's journals, and what she learns through them chills her to the bone. For not only is her fate as a Dream Catcher sealed, but what's to come is so much darker than she'd ever feared...It seems that some nightmares never end...


Having read the original book in this series I was more than interested to see which way this series would develop. This offering is darker and more emotional than the original and a tale that I really wouldn’t recommend to the younger end of Teen readers. It is well written, the characters grow but it’s the real world danger within that when blended with the fantasy angle is truly terrifying. Add to the mix a bad future prognosis for the principle female lead and you do wonder what is going to happen especially as the author does everything she can to create that special reader/character bond.


  1. Hm, I hadn't heard of this series. Funny, it sounds almost like a query I was helping critique on Nathan Bransford's forums! But it looks like interesting. I should check it out.

  2. I LOVE this trilogy!!!!
