GONE description

I got the GONE cover in the mail today. It says:


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...

And the back flap is a quote from the book:

He reaches toward her, his fingers black and bloody, his eyes deranged, unblinking. Janie is paralyzed. his cold hands reach around her neck, squeezing tight, tighter, until Janie has no breath left. She's unable to move, unable to think. As his grasp tightens further around Janie's neck, his face turns sickly alabaster. He strains harder and begins to shake.

Janie is dying.
She has no fight left in her.
It's over.

Okay- it's just fair to read this and have to wait for YEARS! Okay- it's months, but it seems like years. My mom always told me that if you have to wait for something you really want, it will be much sweeter.

GONE looks sweet already! I can't WAIT!

That was definitely a scintillating synopsis! I've grown so attached to Janie and Cabel that I can't help but feel like there has to be a happy ending. Eagerly awaiting for this....

Amber Lynne said...

Joanne Levy said...

OMG - so creepy. What about CABE???


Unknown said...

Oops! Guess I shouldn't have read this. Now I definitely can't wait for next February. Groan.

Sarah said...


We have to wait until FEBRUARY?! Who thought it was right to show us this NOW and we have to wait until FEBRUARY?! This is pure punishment. Pure, cruel punishment.


AmandaHewer said...

February is far far far away. =(

The books sounds like it will be wonderful, even though its the last one.

Which is almost as sad as February. I think I'll just have to cope and wait over half a year. I really hope I don't forget what happens in the first two by then.

Awesome! I picked up "Wake" and "Fade" yesterday and would not get up until I finished them. Great Books, though I wish that I had waited until February to read them. Now I have to wait patiently for "Gone." Good read, even for Adults!

Maggie said...

If Janie dies, can I have Cabe? :)

I'm so excited! It sounds wonderful.
