SummaryAdd a Summary
I read a summary of what happened in Wake(the first book). But since I couldn't find Wake at my library, I jumped right into Fade. Fade was a good book. Even though the ending came too soon. I totally understand how Cabel felt because Janie's role in the case was too risky. I'm hoping I can read Gone soon. I might even read Wake too. Just to see how Cabel and Janie actually got together.
Fade picks up pretty much where Wake ends and you're instantly sucked into Janie and Cabel's world once again. I find it a bit hard to believe that they so quickly become narks at the school and that the boss cop spends so much time with them. The Janie/Cabel relationship became much more intense and realistic. I felt for Cabel, its hard to make a connection with the characters because of the writing but I found myself relating more to Cabel then Janie. I will probably end up reading Gone just to see how it turns out but I wont rush out and buy it.

"Here," he says, handing her a small box. "For you. For your birthday."
Janie's lips part in surprise. She takes it. Feels really strange about opening it in front of him. She wets her lips as she examines the box and the ribbon that surrounds it. "Thank you," she says softly.
"Um..." He clears his throat. "The gift, see, is actually inside the box. The box is like an extra bonus gift. It's how we do things here on Earth"
