From the Publisher: tick
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.
I knew this was going to happen.
Tahereh – why have you done this to me? Why did you have to go and make Warner human?
I purposefully chose not to read Destroy Me yet because I didn’t want to understand Warner. I didn’t want to feel warm fuzzies towards him. I didn’t want to believe that he could change and be a good person.
Now… now I don’t know what to believe. Like Juliette, I want to hate him – but I’ve seen too many glimpses inside his head and just can’t anymore.
Which makes me dread reading Destroy Me that much more.
The interactions between Juliette and Warner are truly what made this book.
I also really enjoyed the scenes between Kenji and Juliette. Finally there’s someone who isn’t afraid of her and will tell her the truth about the world and her place in it. For awhile, I was right there with her and angry at Castle and the position he was putting her in – but Kenji set us both in our place. I appreciate that he would be that honest with her. I wish Castle was that open and honest, considering he’s the leader of the compound. But I do think he should be more understanding of what Juliette has been through in her life.
I devoured this book in a single sitting. It’s not perfect; some world building aspects are under developed for the sake of the character development. But I’m okay with that when I think about it because the character development is so brilliantly done.
There is one significant plot twist, and I can’t help but wonder how it will effect the outcome of the third novel. I can’t wait to find out!
And let me tell you – Ms. Mafi knows how to write a steamy-as-hell love scene. That’s all I have to say about that.
