Things should be great for Janie—she has graduated from high school and is spending her summer with Cabel, the guy she’s totally in love with. But deep down she’s panicking about how she’s going to survive her future when getting sucked into other people’s dreams is really starting to take its toll.

Things get even more complicated when she meets her father for the very first time—and he’s in a coma. As Janie uncovers his secret past, she begins to realize that the choice thought she had has more dire consequences than she ever imagined.

This is the 3rd book in the Dream Catcher series by Lisa McMann. This book focuses more on Janie’s past and her inevitable future. As she slowly learns more about her parents and the fate of Dream Catchers, she has a very difficult decision to make and seeing how it all plays out is a must. The pace is slower, not a lot of action because it is trying to close out Janie’s story and give readers more details about the life of a Dream Catcher.

Everything ended rather quickly and Janie’s life was really just left up in the air, kind of like whatever happens to her is something you’ll have to imagine yourself. All in all, it was the usual ending to a series where all the questions are answered and you’re left feeling closure, but at the same time, not much substance. The characters weren’t further developed and it was more of a quick and easy read.

If you want to round out the series and see how it all ends, then reading this book would be a good idea, but it’s really not one where you can’t put it down or a page-turner. I enjoyed it enough and it was good to see how it all worked out, but nothing memorable and a bit sub-par as compared to Fade.
