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 can’t even begin to gush about how much I enjoy Tahereh Mafi’s writing style in this series. I loved Shatter Me, and really feel the same way about Unravel Me. Like in the first book, the writing was excellent. There are so many good quotables and really unique imagery in this book.
I enjoyed getting this one on audio as well. Yay for a library borrow. Yes, I own the ebook, but alas time to sit and read is not on my side lately. The narrator’s voice was very fitting for Juliette because she sounds so innocent. Her male voices did sound a bit feminine, but that wasn’t too bad. Yes there are chalk board scratches whenever there is a strikeout in the book, but I didn’t find them annoying at all. (I’ve had other people tell me they couldn’t stand the audio of Shatter Me because of the chalkboard scratches.) I think the audio was very well done.
The plot didn’t develop as much as I would have hoped, but this book was more of a stepping stone to get to the war that I expect to read about in Ignite Me. Unravel Me developed the “gifts” or superpowers these characters have and explained them further to the reader. This book, like Shatter Me, was more about the characters and the extremely well done love triangle. I usually can’t stand love triangles, and I didn’t think it was possible for me to like Warner, but Ms. Mafi is a genius. I felt so sad for Adam, but without going into spoilers, I’m not going to say why. But Warner, oh my. Check out the quote I’m using for our That’s What He Said Thursday meme tomorrow. Would someone talk to me like that please? Unless the issues with Adam get resolved in some awesome way in the third book, I think I’m going to have to be Team Warner. I still can’t believe I said that. But I think he needs Juliette to ground him and to keep him from doing the terrible things he is capable of.
I can’t wait to read Ignite Me. I already put a hold on it at the library for the audiobook.
