As one case closes another one opens. Janie Hannagan returns, this time using her abilities of being swept into a person's dreams to solve a sex scandal at her school.

Several calls have been made on Fieldridge High School's anonymous phone line. Although inaudible at times, the messages result in the assumption that certain faculty members and students at Fieldridge have been fooling around. So Captain and her agents use their closest resources to try and crack the case, meaning Janie and Cabel will have to figure out what is going on. Objection at first by Cabel, but Janie gives the final decision and both are on the case.

While the investigation continues, Janie is given the chance to finally see what lies ahead for her. Hardly given any information about her ability, Captain gives Janie a box full of papers written by Martha Stubin that not only contains her secrets and past, but the positive and negative effects of helping others with their dreams. Although she may have a clue with what these effects are, Janie isn't so sure she is ready to confirm what she already knows.

With the intensity of the case and her outcome, Cabel isn't so sure he can handle the danger that Janie puts herself in, and their relationship begins to weaken. Will they be able to get through this case peacefully or will it tear them apart?

As a highly anticipated sequel to WAKE, FADE certainly lives up to expectations. Along with Janie, readers will be able to delve deeper into the enormity of Janie's ability and the strain that it causes not only on her but also on Cabel.

The simplicity of the writing and the creativity of the plot will leave an imprint of the reader, causing it to never FADE from their mind.

(SPOILERS IN HERE!) Okay well as we all know, Wake was Amazing! But, this sequel I really did not like. First off, the ending is sooo bittersweet it makes the entire series depressing. I hope this isn't a spoiler but, Janie learns how her power gives her more bad side-effects like, blindness at 25 years old! Her hands are gonna like, squish up. And, that gonna leave Cabel with a blind old lady when there in their 20's. Ugh, that would suck. And for what? To just do some crime work? And she can never get out of it. She cant ever stop her deterioration. I'd be f'n pissed. And in the end, when Janie accomplishes her goal when she goes undercover in a crime, the whole aspect ALmost makes it believable, but not quite. It could have been amazing, it just didn't quite make it for some reason for me. Ugh, Im really mad at Lisa McMann for writing such a disappointing sequel. I mean, I'll still read the 3rd book, because there are still a lot of unanswered questions. Another complaint I had was I hated Cabel and Janie's relationship this time. I hated that (SPOILER) they eventually did it together. I mean, I'm not against that, I just think it was placed in a really odd area of the book, like it was no big deal. It didn't seem to add anything to the story. They waited and waited just to make sure they were gonna stay together, and then they just like gave up and Janie went for it. Didn't really make any sense. So the author made a mistake of putting that in. So, you should still give it a try. Of course! But, Im just saying it disappointed me!
