My Rating

Synopsis (goodreads):

Janie thought she knew what her future held. And she thought she’d made her peace with it. But she can’t handle dragging Cabel down with her.

She knows he will stay with her, despite what she sees in his dreams. He’s amazing. And she’s a train wreck. Janie sees only one way to give him the life he deserves: She has to disappear. And it’s going to kill them both.

Then a stranger enters her life — and everything unravels. The future Janie once faced now has an ominous twist, and her choices are more dire than she’d ever thought possible. She alone must decide between the lesser of two evils. And time is running out. . . 

My Review:

The Dream Catcher trilogy has been an amazing series. I loved it! When McMann writes, she incorporates all these vivid images and emotions that are just so raw and real, if not a little too raw.

I bought Gone the same time i bought Fade, but i didn’t start reading it immediately after i finished Fade because the premise of the books were depressing and i wanted to create a gap between that. So i read two other books and then jumped into the water again.

Gone, the title is symbolic to many things. The fact that Janie loses the father she never knew, but at the same time knew better than anyone. Gone is the choice that Janie thought she had. Gone is that happy ending she was looking for, there isn’t one in her book and Gone is (eventually) the things she knew she was going to lose.

The scary/creepy part about Gone was the dreams that haunt Janie. They were vivid and the way McMann wrote the whole dream sequence it really scared me. It was almost like i was having the dream. And unlike the last two books, the problems were internal rather than external. It was Janie’s decision, one that she would have to live with for the rest of her life. The fight was very much internal.

Overall, this is a great series and i recommend it as a whole!
