Author: Tahereh Mafi Publisher: Walker Release Date: 4th February 2014 Genre: YA, Romance, Dystopian Pages: 421 --- The heart-stopping conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series, which Ransom Riggs, bestselling author of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, called “a thrilling, high-stakes saga of self-discovery and forbidden love.”
With Omega Point destroyed, Juliette doesn’t know if the rebels, her friends, or even Adam are alive. But that won’t keep her from trying to take down The Reestablishment once and for all. Now she must rely on Warner, the handsome commander of Sector 45. The one person she never thought she could trust. The same person who saved her life. He promises to help Juliette master her powers and save their dying world . . . but that’s not all he wants with her.
The Shatter Me series is perfect for fans who crave action-packed young adult novels with tantalizing romance like Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Legend by Marie Lu. Tahereh Mafi has created a captivating and original story that combines the best of dystopian and paranormal, and was praised by Publishers Weekly as “a gripping read from an author who’s not afraid to take risks.” Now this final book brings the series to a shocking and satisfying end. --- I loved this series. Ignite Me was everything I wanted in the conclusion (wink wink). It was epic, fast paced, full of moments that keep you hooked and the ever burning love triangle between Juliette and Adam and Warner keeps the reader enthralled.
Another word I would use to describe this book/this conclusion was satisfying. I feel like every character ended up where I wanted them to be. Also Kenji’s character development in this one was really fantastic; I love him so much now that he’s grown on both me and Juliette.
I love the shocking twists about Adam’s parentage and how Anderson was ruthless and the one dictating Sector 45 the entire time. I also loved the secret about Warner’s mother.
It was written incredibly well. Mafi has this sort of lyrical prose almost that I just adore. She lays out her words in the best way and it definitely adds to the story. As for the plot, it was so intense that I could barely put it down. And, well, I didn’t. I finished it in three hours.
The ending was such an empowering moment for Juliette and I could’ve been more proud. I’m really, really excited for the next three books now. I would recommend this series to anyone – it’s so easy to read and I definitely think it’s right up the street of those who enjoyed The Hunger Games or Noughts & Crosses.
