16-year-old Dusty Everhart breaks into houses late at night, but not because she's a criminal. No, she's a Nightmare. Literally. Dusty is a magical being who feeds on human dreams.
Being the only Nightmare at Arkwell Academy, a boarding school for magickind, and living in the shadow of her mother's infamy is hard enough, not to mention the crazy events of the past year. Dusty may have saved the day, but there are many days left in the year, and with an old foe back to seek revenge, she'll need all her strength to defeat him and save her friends.
Mindee Arnett thrills again in The Nightmare Charade, the stunning final installment in the Arkwell Academy series.

Finally, the last book in The Arkwell Academy series. I was interested (and half-obsessed) with this series at the start because of the fact that Dusty is a NIGHTMARE and she feeds off people’s dreams. But in this last book, I realised that we’ve come a long long way from Dusty just being a Nightmare. What I loved was the fact that Eli and Dusty’s relationship was forbidden. Not that I love LOVE it, just that it keeps us in suspense. It’s like, you never know what is going to happen and that makes the ending unpredictable, and well, unexpected. But I did expect one thing, and boy, was I happy that I was right HAHAHA.

The whole book was written in fast-paced and it keeps you on your toe, because THIS is the book where you will learn to doubt EVERYONE, even the closest to you. And I loved that both Dusty and Will never gave up on each other, no matter how hard people are trying to push them apart. YES. I love these kinds of fictional couples HEHE. But anyway, like I said, the whole story line has gotten more intense, especially since in this book, the danger seems to target Dusty specifically, or at least, the people close to her.

The book ended off in a satisfactory note, and although some parts I wish did not happened, I am quite happy with the ending. BUT. THEM. FEELS. THOUGH. HAHAHAH because yeah, FEEEEELS. Ugh. I am gonna miss reading about Dusty and her cool dreams with Eli. Sigh. 🙁
