SOME NIGHTMARES NEVER END.
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 feared….
I absolutely love this series. Lisa McMann has a very distinct writing style in this series and I can’t get enough of it. This is the second book in McMann’s Dream Catcher series, and for a squeal this book did very well. After all of the drama that went on in Wake, Janie is now working for the police to track down some possible criminals at her school. Janie has a power to fall into peoples dreams while they are sleeping, a gift and a curse.
Like in Wake, my favorite character is Cable, Janie’s secret boyfriend. Cable also works for the police with Janie and the two are working together on the case. Cable just seems like a perfect guy to me- he has flaws, but he also helps and accepts Janie when she falls into dreams and needs help jumping out of them. Janie, is also a really great main character. She’s had a hard life with an alcoholic mother and constantly falling into dreams, but I just love her.
The case that the two work on together- without giving to much away, is pretty crazy. It’s pretty freaky to think about something like that going on at a high school, but I just love how the story unravels in the story.
