Gone (Wake #3) by Lisa McMann

The final book in the Wake trilogy finds Janie trying to decide how to handle her inevitable crippling.  She is torn by the desire to save her sight and her hands or to stay with Cabel who loves her desperately.
To Janie, this room doesn't feel like a part of the house.  It's more just a door to another world, a portal to sorrow, from which Dorothea appears and disappears at random.  p.46

This was a sad series overall, but Gone gave a some hope with a very appropriate ending.  I liked Janie and I liked Cable and I loved their relationship.  Not always easy and not all consuming, but very realistic.  And poor Janie with her choice that seems like no choice at all.  I didn't have any expectations with Gone, but I found it very satisfying.  The writing is intentionally choppy and has sort of a dream-like quality and there were a few adjustment moments for me.  But all in all Janie transitioned well through the series as a whole and I think got the ending she deserved.

  1. It always takes me awhile to adjust to the writing in these. I've read the first two and I'm sure it's only a matter of time before I read the third.

  2. Ooh, the Wake series! I really, REALLY want to read this... And I have no idea why it's not available in Serbia yet!!

    By the way, I started following you. :)

  3. @Amanda - It was a pretty good book, more on point with the first one than the second.

    @Nikola - Aw, I hope you get them soon.
    Thanks for following. :)

  4. I've seen mixed reviews on this one. I still have to get through Fade!

  5. @Buckeye Girl - I think your mileage may vary on this series.
