Cata, Ant, Fergus, Sinclair and Remi are the surviving members of the experiment. Trapped in the Dreamfall, they have figured out the pattern of the dreams and the Void. Not only must they survive each terrifying nightmare, they must figure out a way to escape the Dreamfall before death is imminent. New secrets and twists are introduced with each of the characters; not all of them are exactly as they seem. The nightmares start to come together and aren’t just random visions; instead they reveal the characters past and reality. I love the idea to this novel. Exploring each nightmare in detail along with each of the characters’ takes the reader on an action-packed ride. Told in first-person through Cata, Ant, and Jamie, the book explores both inside the dream world and outside, where Jamie slowly puts together the pieces of the puzzle. In the previous novel, I found it hard to distinguish between Cata and Fergus. This time, I really enjoyed reading more about Ant and her qualities. I developed separate relationships with each character and Plum did a great job in telling their stories.I did find it a little bit repetitive during nightmares. At some points I wasn’t sure if Plum was just using the scenes as filler text or if they actually contributed to the novel. Each character slowly became very significant to the story and Plum managed to weave the pasts of each teenager into the story. There are always questionable, odd moments in the novel that kept me entranced and interested in what was to come. NEVERWAKE kept me on edge, especially nearing the climax where dark secrets are slowly revealed.Each nightmare is surreal in its own way. They are twisted and unique but aren’t too creepy. In short, they are very bizarre and will definitely frighten younger readers. Each character fights through pain and gore, from getting shot to getting fingers chopped off. However, I would have enjoyed a more “American Horror Story”-scare in the nightmares because most of the scenes are just convoluted action. The ending ties things together for the characters, but does so in a stereotypical teen movie ending, where each character’s future is neatly explained in short paragraphs. Characters that meet their unfortunate end in the novel, however, I feel like I did not connect enough with. There could have been a deeper relationship between the characters and more emotion within their pasts. Instead, their deaths didn’t seem too shocking or heartbreaking. Overall, Amy Plum definitely stepped up in this sequel, compared to the first novel, from diving deeper into the characters to creating an intricate plot. The plot twists definitely did not end in DREAMFALL and this book will leave you shaken and thrilled.more
- January 1, 1970The Beauty and Her ReadsI was so excited for this installment to come out! The first novel ended on quite a cliffhanger.The description of nightmares was out of this world. I don’t even understand how could the author even conjure such horrific things to write about. Brett’s nightmare especially gave me goosebumps.The writing style, as well as the description of the Void and the nightmares, is much more vivid than the first installment. I felt like the duology kind of matured in this installment. CHARACTERS Ant Her I was so excited for this installment to come out! The first novel ended on quite a cliffhanger.The description of nightmares was out of this world. I don’t even understand how could the author even conjure such horrific things to write about. Brett’s nightmare especially gave me goosebumps.The writing style, as well as the description of the Void and the nightmares, is much more vivid than the first installment. I felt like the duology kind of matured in this installment. CHARACTERS Ant Her character’s development is amazing throughout the book. I just loved her point of view. Her way of processing things whilst being trapped in a nightmare is so logical. The nightmares were way creepier when they were from her point of view. Sinclair He is a psychopath. But no one actually knows that in the group. Even though his past was written very well, I think the author could have played with the concept of a psychopath being trapped with you in your nightmare with no way out, a little better. It just kind of took away from the ‘thriller’ aspect of the book.By the end, I absolutely loathed his character which was a good thing. Cata In this book as well, Cata’s character fell a little flat for me. it just felt like her character ‘goes through the motions’ when she reacted in a situation. There was literally nothing new, or remotely interesting about her character. She reminded of the numerous protagonists which I came across when the dystopian-young-adult genre blew up 3-4 years ago.But, her backstory was really sad and I’m happy how things turned out for her in the end. Fergus His character was *meh*. I’m actually happy that I didn’t have to tolerate his point of view in this book. His nightmares were also the least impressing but absolutely in character. I can’t blame the author. Jaime His character was my absolute favorite! His point of view just kept me on my toes. By the end, I had so much respect for his character because the way he handled the ‘situation’ was ballsy. We don’t get to know much about his backstory which was kind of understandable as he was a just there to monitor the experiments.But, needless to say, I kind of wanted to know his past.Special mention of Remi, as even though I don’t really have much to say about his character, he definitely added a little bit diversity in this book. Also, his nightmares were the closest to reality and hence, terrifying. ENDING This book had kind of a clichéd happy ending. But, I especially loved what happened to Sinclair’s character in the end.Overall, this was a really good duology if you are a sucker for nightmarish books!more
- January 1, 1970LouisaLoved reading this book! Such a great, fantastic, amazing sequel! So much happens (Though we don't find out if Jaime is a girl or a boy) and I really enjoyed how it ended!
- January 1, 1970Fallen CatalystKinda wish that the epilogue would let everyone tell their own stories but Jaime wrapped it up nicely. Never figured out Jaime’s gender though
