Trying to work things out with Nash—her maybe boyfriend—is hard enough for Kaylee Cavanaugh. She can’t just pretend nothing happened. But “complicated” doesn’t even begin to describe their relationship when his ex-girlfriend transfers to their school, determined to take Nash back.
See, Sabine isn’t just an ordinary girl. She’s a mara, the living personification of a nightmare. She can read people’s fears—and craft them into nightmares while her victims sleep. Feeding from human fear is how she survives.
And Sabine isn’t above scaring Kaylee and the entire school to death to get whatever—and whoever—she wants.
What I thought:
I am definitely in love with this series, and this book is my favourite so far!
Kaylee and Nash are still apart after the last book after what Nash did in the last book. After not seeing each other for a few weeks, it’s hard for them to even talk together. Then comes Sabine, Nash’s ex-girlfriend from 2 years ago, just randomly showing up at their school. Not only is it obvious that Sabine wants Nash back, but technically they never broke up. Nash and his mom moved away suddenly, and they lost contact with each other.
Then comes the conflict Kaylee is dealing with, her inability to fully trust Nash, and whether or not to take him back. She still can’t get over the fact of what he did and how he used her, even though that was the high doing the work.
But while this is going on, teachers at the school are dying suddenly. Kaylee wants to blame Sabine, since she is a mara, one who gives nightmares to people and feeds off their fears in their sleep. But there could be something bigger going on at the school than they thought, it’s just a matter of who is behind it, and if Sabine is really involved.
The drama was definitely higher and more awesome than the last book. At first I hated Sabine, but she’s kind of awesome. Even though she scares people unintentionally and feeds off their fears, but then again she has to do that to survive. She has her weak moments that show how vulnerable she can be, and I just kind of got attached to her character. Nash is also dealing with a lot, the guilt and withdrawal symptoms, and the need to be with Kaylee again.
This story was definitely my favourite so far, I think this series just keeps getting better with every book!
Recommended for fans of the series, and anyone who likes young adult romance and paranormal.
