it's almost
time for war.

Juliette has escaped to Omega Point. It is a place for people like her — people with gifts — and it is also the headquarters of the rebel resistance.

She's finally free from The Reestablishment, free from their plan to use her as a weapon, and free to love Adam. But Juliette will never be free from her lethal touch.

Or from Warner, who wants Juliette more than she ever thought possible.

In this exhilarating sequel to Shatter Me, Juliette has to make life-changing decisions between what she wants and what she thinks is right. Decisions that might involve choosing between her heart — and Adam's life.

Review:

Review:

“The story and character arcs are glorious and well thought out. Tahereh Mafi has proved herself a masterful plotter and storyteller.” NY Journal of Books

Review:

“Ready for round two? The war between the Reestablishment and its citizens is ramping up in this sequel to the steamy dystopia Shatter Me. Fans will be thrilled with the secrets unveiled in this one.” Booklist

About the Author

Tahereh Mafi is a girl. She was born in a small city somewhere in Connecticut and currently resides in Orange County, California, where the weather is just a little too perfect for her taste. When unable to find a book, she can be found reading candy wrappers, coupons, and old receipts. Shatter Me and Unravel Me are the first two novels in a trilogy about Juliette.

Disquietus, April 27, 2014 (view all comments by Disquietus)
I am in love with this book.

The writing you guys. It’s almost criminal how good it is. It’s the kind of writing I want to sink into and wrap around myself and live in forever. Tahereh Mafi has the most gorgeous way with words. Descriptive, evocative, painful and all sorts of other adjectives that can’t possibly give justice to her magic. She writes like no one else out there and even though it probably shouldn’t work, it does in the best possible way.

And her characters. These beautiful, complex, tortured, hopeful, amazing characters.

Juliette just blows me away. This girl feels so much and her mind is so beautiful. There are times when her self-loathing literally had me crying. She’s such a complex character and watching her slowly accept herself and this immense, overwhelming, earth-shattering power of hers was an amazing reading experience. She’s still got a long way to go. She’s still angry and confused but she’s finally starting to come out of her shell and make her own choices and I can’t wait to see where they take her.

Adam. I honestly don’t know how I feel about him. Or Warner. Going into this, it’d been long enough since I read Shatter Me that I couldn’t remember how I felt about any of the characters, and since I haven’t yet read the Destroy Me novella, I was looking at these boys and this triangle with completely fresh eyes, and I love them both. I literally cannot choose.

Juliette and Adam are beautiful together. I cannot handle how much Juliette loves Adam and how much Adam loves her. It’s beautiful and painful and I really want them to have their happily ever after. And it doesn’t hurt that because of Mafi’s gorgeous way with words it is easy to picture just how amazingly sexy and passionate Adam is. There were times when he was definitely frustrating, but this boy is dealing with so much, including a couple of revelations that rocked the foundation of his world, so I think he can be forgiven for feeling and acting the way he does about certain things. And it breaks my heart because I know that things are probably going to get worse for him before they get better.

Warner. UGH. I fought so hard not to fall for him. But then Chapter 62 happened and that was the end of everything in the world for me. Seriously. I think I read it 3 or 4 times before I could move on. It might be the greatest chapter in YA history. Or maybe that’s just me. But on to the more important stuff. Warner is definitely flawed. He’s done some horrific, unforgivable things. Thing’s he doesn’t apologize for and he’s definitely got a long path to redemption, if redemption is even possible. Warner and Juliette have such intense chemistry, and once again Mafi’s talent with words had me struggling not to fall in love with them as a couple. They just connect in a way that Adam and Juliette don’t. They could be the best or worst thing for each other. I especially enjoy them because Juliette doesn’t know how to handle Warner at all, which definitely has its fun moments. While there is a part of me that not so secretly hopes that they find a way to keep each other, I’m trying to harden my heart because the much more realistic part of me doesn’t see a way for Warner to survive this war.

As for the other major supporting characters…I’m not sure how I feel about Castle. I’m definitely on the fence about him and don’t trust him at all. I look forward to Warner’s father’s death immensely and Kenji is my favorite person ever. If you don’t love Kenji I can’t know you, and if he doesn’t survive I will cry forever and ever and never forgive. Even though it may seem as if he’s just there for comic relief, there is definitely more to him than that. Maybe we’ll get a Kenji novella. That would be awesome.
