Summary (from Goodreads)

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 review of Gone:

I am so sad to see this series is over. I want so much more of it. I really liked this series. This one dealt with some serious issues and hard choices. None of the characters had an easy time. I really just wanted Janie and Cabel to be able to sit back and relax and get they happily ever after for this book. I wanted to read about their good times. But their struggles were not over. I went through every emotion with them. I really felt their pain, and happiness, and love. It was beautiful.

You get to learn a lot more about dream catchers and Janie in this book. That was really interesting. I don’t want this to be the end. I was kind of sad at the way the book ended, because I felt like it still left some gaps. There is so much unknown about all the character’s futures. I liked how it ended somewhat hopeful but it was so vague. In my crazy book mind, to me this means that there is room for more books- more stories about Janie! I know this is a trilogy but hey, a girl can hope! 🙂 I just cannot get enough of these books. I loved them. They are an interesting and really well done story. Lisa McMann did an amazing job!

Come back to my blog on June 17th. I will be giving away a copy of Gone! 🙂 

4/5 Gavels.
