The conclusion of the paranormal teen series, Wake. Janie is spending her summer with Cabel, but deep down she’s panicking about how she’s going to survive her future when getting sucked into other people’s dreams starts to take its toll.
I love this trilogy! While it doesn’t have the longest books, the most detailed plot, or dozens of characters, it’s wonderful in its simplicity. The writing style applied here is gorgeous, coupled with the harsh revelations and horrible decisions that Janie needs to make in this final installment. Everything wraps up in one awesome, satisfying conclusion.
I loved the relationship between Cabe and Janie in this book. They’re both still trying to get over everything that happened in Fade. They’re also trying to deal with the horrible truths made real to them. Neither of them fully wants to deal with the implications, something that snowballs into the conclusion. There are many twists and turns in this book that kept me interested. It’s short and took me only a day to read. All of the books are around the same length, so if you’re looking for a quick trilogy to pick up or a pretty easy read, get any of these books. Though not out of order. ;)
I really love these books and I’m sad that now I need to say goodbye to these fantastic characters. The intoxicating writing, the great plotline, the interesting abilities . . . This is something I’ll reread again and again!
CHERISHED CONCLUSION. 5/5 stars
