REVIEW: Fade by Lisa McMann


Life is tougher than dreams for Janie and Cabel, as they just want to spend some time together, but can’t. Disturbing things are happening at the high school, but no one’s talking, and it’s up to Janie to solve the mystery. She taps into a classmate’s nightmares and gets some major leads, but getting the proof drops Janie in way over her head pushing Cabel to behave so shockingly it brings down grave consequences effecting them both. The cherry on top is learning the truth about what lies ahead in Janie’s future as her ability come at a high cost.

Title:  Fade
Series:  Wake
Book #: 2
Author:  Lisa McMann
Approximate Book Length:  260 Pages
Recommended Reader Age:  16+
Sexual Content:  Mild


Lisa McMann does it again! This time the stakes are higher as Cabel deals with the risks Janie has to take and Janie copes with just how hard things get with her ability. To say Janie gets in over her head is an understatement as she nearly falls victim to one of the worst kinds of evil in humanity. Cabel struggles to let Janie do what she needs to, knowing what could happen, and despite the new steps they take in their relationship, it stresses their bond until it nearly breaks.

What I liked about this book was that teenage high school seniors are portrayed pretty realistically. Even the topic of safe sex is addressed, and teenagers partying too hard and dangerously. What I didn’t like about this book is that I have a hard time believing that Janie would be allowed to get so deep in a mission as to be as in danger as she ends up. Then again, I know nothing about teenage NARCs.

In Conclusion:

Ultimately, Fade is a really great sequel that serves to only get readers further invested in Janie’s life. This story is a true emotional rollercoaster that takes you places you wouldn’t normally dare go.
