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 even feared...
Whoa, I'm working on making these reviews a little better! Next, I'll figure out how to get the book covers on here, but my legs hurt, so that's a project for another time. Anyhoot, the book. Ahhh, I love this series! So much fun! And Cabel, well, he's just downright yummy. Very fun to read about :) This second book in the series was a little darker than the first, and the writing was a little more bare-bones, but in a good way. The sentences are short, a lot of them fragments, which would usually annoy me, but it's done well. There are a few times I want a bit more in terms of description, but over all, it works, and works well. And, even thought this is a bit spoiler-ish, I did thing that Janine's fate was going to be a bit worse than it was. But, maybe that's just me. I can't wait for the third book, GONE, which comes out in a couple of weeks!
Favorite line: "Janie takes her hat off her head and tucks it under her arm, waiting, waiting. Waiting to be done. So she can say good-bye to this place, once and for all."
