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....
This Trilogy is at the top of my list of Fantastic books that I have read. I enjoyed all three books, although I would have liked it to have been a bit longer. I would have also liked to see more things happen in Gone like in the other two.
Gone is written in third person present tense and focus alot on the relationships between Janie and those around her. There are secrets revealed, and choices to make and nothing is ever simple for Janie.
As always Martha Stubin is a favourite character for me. I would have loved if she were weaved into the novel a little more. Captain is also a strong and very likable character.
I'm not sure what else to say without adding anything that may spoil this book so I will finish here.
While there are a few things that could have been done better, it is a nice finish to the trilogy.
