What if you found out you never existed?"My name is Celestra Caine. I am seventeen years old, which makes me a senior at Richmond High. I never thought this would happen to me, but it has... I'm one of those people you see every day, go to school with, remember seeing at the supermarket or the mall, and then one day you don't hear about them any longer. They're gone, and eventually, you forget them."

Fade (Fade, #1)

I am really starting to like the dystopia genre. Although when I started reading this book, I had no idea it was dystopia. I loved how this book started though, it didn't wait to get to the action, it started off with a bang and continued throughout the whole book.

The beginning of this book grabs you right away and you cannot put it down. It is almost a worry/panic type feeling you have when you start reading this book. You really feel the angst and worry the main character Celestra is feeling. Celeatra's live is disappearing and she has no idea why. She is rushed away by a man named Jack Simple, (which she doesn't believe is his real name, who would) and is thrust into a world where she is the hunted one and Jack and the and the Faders are doing everything they can to keep her alive.

This book has many twist and turns but it brings you into a world that no one would ever think that they are a part of. And the one person Celstra thought she could trust the most in the world, turns out he is one of the Others.

I loved everything about this book. Normally I am not a huge fan of love triangles  but how it is done is this book does it well. You find yourself fighting for each guy at different parts of the story, but then you can also feel the pain and confusion Celstra is going through as well. I was totally drawn in straight away with this book and when I finished I literary said "Are you kidding me?" Trust me, this is an awesome read and I've super excited to read Falling.

What is Celestra Caine? Who is she and did she ever existed? The Faders and the Others clash at the Underground, sending everything into a tailspin. Celestra is pulled into more intrigue, more danger, and more romance, as she discovers who she is and why everyone wants to get her in Book 2 of the FADE series.
