Gone (Wake)

Gone (Wake Trilogy, Book 3) - Lisa McMann Gone is the final book in the Dream Catcher trilogy. The first book [b:Wake|1661957|Wake (Dream Catcher, #1)|Lisa McMann|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/414cikykprL._SL75_.jpg|1656772] tells the story of Janie learning and dealing with her dream catcher ability and starting a romance with Cabel. The second book [b:Fade|3657138|Fade (Dream Catcher, #2)|Lisa McMann|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41hnprTQjzL._SL75_.jpg|3700340] is Janie using her powers to solve crime. In this final book she is finally facing the issue of her alcoholic mother. She also learns more about her dream catcher "curse" when someone unexpected enters her life. This is a short book, just over 200 pages. Janie embarks on a dark journey, facing her demons. Janie is very conflicted about how to use her abilities. She knows they are affecting her sight and will leave her disabled and she does not want to be a burden on Cabel. I like the characters in this series, and it felt right that Janie had to deal with her mother's alcoholism. It has always been in the background of the series, although it is not the most interesting plot point for me.She is faced with a choice of how to deal with her ability, when she learns of an option that may allow her to keep her sight and live a more normal life. However, she learns that neither of the choices are going to give her everything she wants. I wish that this book was longer and there was another story line added. The ending is not entirely satisfying. It did not feel like the end of the series- wish there was another book to continue the story. I would like to see more of Janie and Cabel, and what is next for them.I would rate this book 3.5 stars, which may be a little generous because of my enjoyment of the series as a whole and the characters.
