Gone by Lisa McMann

 Book 3 (Book 1: Wake, Book 2: Fade) 

 
Novel Summation:

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 Thoughts:

I enjoyed this book a lot. I felt out of the trilogy it was the second best (the first best being Fade). The story is written well and is easy to read. Janie is still struggling with the realization of her future as a dream catcher. She spends a lot of time worried about what others think about her, which could be a bit annoying at times. Also, the book and the book summation kind of made one  believe that at some point Janie was going to leave her previous life. However, that really didn’t happen. Cabel’s character is present in the book but compared to the first book and sort of the second book, there wasn’t much character development. Everyone from the previous books makes an appearance and play some small role. It had a solid conclusion that didn’t lead to much speculation on the future. Though another book would be nice, it really isn’t necessary. In the end everything seems to work out fine. It was a good book and I recommend it to those who enjoyed the first two.
