Descrizione

The heart-stopping third installment in the New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series, which Ransom Riggs, author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and Hollow City, 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."

    “I need waves…I need waterfalls..”This was my least favorite of the three, but I still enjoyed it. This is a series I recommend giving a try on audiobook as I flew through all three in only a few days.I am team Warner all the way. Adam was so spiteful in book three. I also really enjoy how much Juliet has grown up, and I hope the next book does her justice with her character development.Overall, I really enjoyed the three book series and am excited for the additional books being added.

    I love this book SOOOO much!! Juliette has come a long way since the first book and has become one badass lady! She learns to be true to herself and to not ignore her true feelings which allows her to learn how to control her powers better. I'm still a little iffy on Warner though, while he had really good reasoning behind many of the horrible things he has done there were still a few really bad things he did that he didn't have good reasoning. I love that we get to know him better on a more personal level and my heart definitely broke for him but Juliette sure does forgive him pretty easily. Not that Adam was any better in this book. He was whiney and controlling and just plain annoying for the most part. Kenji was amazing as always, definitely one of my favorite characters! I can't wait for his novella. I've heard the next one has a pretty big cliffhanger so I'll probably wait for the fifth book to come out first so I can read them back to back and not have to deal with the agony of the cliffhanger lol.

    I don't know where to start, so for now I'm just gonna say: Now that's how you conclude a series. That statement alone might be giving away too much but lets just say I was very happy with how Ms. Mafi ended it. Although, I think at least a Novella or even an Epilogue would be great. And after writing that, I think too much info would probably just ruin it. Okay, so you see how confused I am, and that's why I am going to let these feelings I'm feeling from just finishing this book decompress in my mind and I will return to write a more thorough review later.

    The third installment of the Shatter Me series has been my favorite book out of them all, so far! So much action, growth for all of the characters, and interesting twists in the plot. I can't wait to read the fourth!

    I really was not a fan of the first two... but I LOVED LOVED LOVED this one. Warner and Juliette <3. This book actually made me laugh and Juliette finally stopped being useless. I completely enjoyed the friendship between Kenji and Juliette. I loved this book solely because of the interesting, romantic, funny, volatile, complex, and beautiful relationships between the characters. I still never really got invested in the world or the battles (not very compelling or believable to me). But I feel like the relationships were really well developed. I devoured this book in a day. And once more: Warner and Juliette!!! <3

    It has been quite awhile since I read the second book in this series, so maybe I'm just remembering things incorrectly. It seems like all of the characters had some new personalities put in. The only character who seemed the same was Adam. He's always seemed like a whiny hot-head to me, so I wasn't surprised by his strong reactions.

    I don't want to give too much away, but I wish Juliette ended up alone, standing on her own two feet. She may be strong physically, but emotionally I still think she is experiencing some stunted growth. Also, I'm surprised this book can remain in the YA category. It has some content that is a little more fitting of a NA novel. (I understand teenagers have sex, but I started reading YA at the age of 12, and I'm not convinced a 12-year-old needs to read some content. Let them be little!) Overall, the series was fun and this conclusion wasn't half bad.

    This was a fantastic end to an amazing series. I love the poetic and powerful writing. The characters are interesting, confusing, strong, and dynamic. The heroine goes through huge transformations as she decides to lead a rebellion against an oppressive regime. Love it!

    Parent review

    I would give this book series four or five stars based on the story line alone. As an xmen fan, I loved this story line. I loved the characters and the weird writing grew on me. However as a momma, I would never let my young teenage girls read this book. (Thus a 3) It was full of colorful language and very intimate in places. I kept thinking man I would not want my daughter to read this and then go on a date.

    Solid 5 stars. It's my fav book of all three. Reread this trilogy because I want to remember the feeling before jump to the fourth. Love it so much.

    I loved this book. Mafi writes feelings like no author I have ever seen before and, in my opinion, it really makes up for the areas she might be lacking in. The thoughts in Juliette's head are just so vivid that I feel them in my being. And the scenes between her and Warner are electric. I feel him. I've seen some reviews where people are very critical of Juliette ending up with Warner because of what they see as abusive behavior from book one. Some of these people are not too fond of what they call the "rewriting" of history in this book. I'm not too sure that I would call it rewriting. In the first book Juliette was very scared and interpreted things oddly (hence all the mark throughs in the text of the book). Now, in Ignite Me, she's seeing things with more open eyes and more as they actually exist and not as a scared girl afraid of who she is and everyone around her. My one beef with the story is that it ended too soon. I wanted just a bit more. What happens in the long run?

    Update, Third reread on 27/02/2018
    I feel like I fall more for this book with each new reread.
    Whereas [b:Shatter Me10429045Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)Tahereh Mafihttps://images.gr-assets.com/books/1310649047s/10429045.jpg15333458] was so poetic in the way it was written and so beautiful literature wise, Ignite Me was far more than that. The growth Juliette had is more astonishing to me every time I reread the book because I catch on more details than before every time.


    Original review
    Okay this one is By far The BEST book in this trilogy!!
    I just LOVE how Juliette developed in this book, it's like she suddenly grew up from being that whiny annoying little prick to becoming this strong badass character who's ready to take over the world
    And I think I have every right to say Warner had a LOT to do with that change!!
    I loooove how her and Kenji became besties and all and I love how she was finally able to stand up for herself and let everyone see how much she changed

    As for Adam, well I really don't wanna talk much about him because he have been getting on my nerves lately but let's just say I think Adam is a little bitch

    Ahhhh the series is over! *weeps*I never thought that I would be upset that the Shatter Me series is complete; in fact, I never thought that I'd even READ the remaining two books, because I hated Shatter Me. As in, I gave it one star because I hated it so much. But thankfully, I had a few bookish friends who kept pestering me to read the rest of the series, and I am so glad that I did.All spoilers for Ignite Me are hidden, but minor spoilers from the first two books are not. You have been warned!I'll admit that I cheated with this book; I made it through the first chapter before I flipped to the last few pages, because I just had to know how it ended. I'm bad like that. And when I saw that Juliette and Warner ended up together, I may have squealed out loud a little. Maybe. Mainly because Mafi really made me fall in love with the character of Warner. She really sold him to me as something other than a two-dimensional cardboard character, which is how I saw him when I read Shatter Me the first time, and now I really, really want to re-read that book sometime in the future because I have a feeling that I might enjoy it a lot more now.Ahem.Anyway.I love how Juliette matured over the books. In the first book, she was so scared and timid that she barely had a personality. By the time the third book is over, she's acquired so much confidence in her skills and it's wonderful to see. In fact, I don't think she mentally "crosses out" anything she says or thinks in this book. Considering that it felt like half of the first book was "crossed out" by her self-censoring, this is amazing in itself.Although...I really have doubts that Juliette could successfully lead a resistance effort over the long term. Having Warner and Castle by her side will help, of course, but come on, she's seventeen and Warner is nineteen. I am not saying that youth can't accomplish a significant change, but from the way the book acts, The Reestablishment has taken over pretty much THE ENTIRE WORLD. Is she really prepared to rule THE ENTIRE WORLD? Seriously.Warner. I really like how he has evolved as a character too, although I wish that Mafi hadn't taken away some of his sociopathic edge. ;) He never wanted to use Juliette as a weapon; that was all a ruse to fool his father. He shot the soldier in Shatter Me not for stealing, but because he beat the shit out of his family. He kept Juliette isolated from his soldiers in Shatter Me to protect her. And the whole "torturing a toddler thing" was just a simulation. Ahhh can't he still be BAD and be kind of redeemed? Please? Sigh. But I still love his character; he really grew on me fast in the second and third books. I can just imagine how disappointed the "Team Adam" people were with this book, though. I always viewed Adam as responsible and truly loving Juliette. But he turns into a raging jerk in this book, and even by the end, he isn't the same Adam from the first book. I can understand two people, desperate for a family or stability in their lives, clinging together for a time. I can understand those two people growing apart from one another, too. But you don't have to make Adam the bad guy. I think he's actually a very good guy, so his angry outbursts and telling Juliette that he wished she'd died just didn't feel right. At all.I don't mind the ending not tying everything up in a big bright bow with all wrapped up nicely. Life isn't like that. I thought that it was a good ending, and I left satisfied.Mafi's writing style has really grown on me, and I now enjoy her writing much more that I don't have to read a hundred synonyms for "blue." However, I feel that the action sections kind of suffered, and they didn't feel that dramatic or satisfying to me. Anderson's death at Juliette's hands felt horribly anticlimactic and rushed. I would have liked more. A lot more.But altogether, I enjoyed the second and third books in the Shatter Me series quite a lot, and I will definitely be re-reading the first book in the series in the future to see if I enjoy it more now that I've seen how the series grows and matures. I will definitely pick up more from this author once it is published.

    Juliette went from a substantially annoying bimbo to a less annoying bimbo. And god yes I'm so happy that she finally found a brain somewhere and ended up with Warner. At first I shipped her with Adam so hard but that scene with Warner and the dog practically broke me into a kajillion pieces.

    James is the cutest kid as usual
    and Kenji //cries

    Honestly he's my favorite - he tells everything like it is and really knocks some sense into Juliette when i can't stand her the most. God bless his existence.
  • (5/5)
    Omega Point is destroyed and Juliette is now with Warner, the boy who had originally been her captor but used his power - the ability to "borrow" others' powers - to heal her from a fatal gunshot wound. Despite this, Juliette is more determined than ever to defeat the Reestablishment, the corrupt government headed up by Anderson, Warner and Adam's father. Meanwhile, she starts to realize that her original perceptions of what happened during her imprisonment may not have been accurate. Can Warner be trusted?I love how you can tell just by the writing style how self-assured Juliette has become. In the first book, there were crossouts, broken sentences, and lots of counting as Juliette was near the breaking point, though not quite insane. In the second, this was less common, but still present, and Juliette went back and forth between weepy and strong. Now, Juliette projects confidence in herself and her abilities, and she's not crossing anything out anymore. The tight first-person point of view allows for surprising but believable revelations that turn the first book on its head, and the author isn't afraid to play with readers' expectations of the genre. This is more of a romance than a dystopia, but the non-stop pacing and complex characters kept me reading breathlessly. I wanted to cheer Juliette the whole way.

    What a trilogy! Buuuuuuut, that being said, I'm left to wonder if there won't be another, with the way it ended. Excellent! I will recommend this trilogy to everyone I know and meet at my library.
  • (5/5)
    Spoiler. Spoiler. Spoiler.

    This is a review made by a silly girl and I don't care if you agree or not. (Actually, I don't see this as a proper review. I just want to let out all the feels.)

    You probably should not read this. There's spoilers everywhere okay?

    You've been warned.




    I can't tell you guys enough how much I love love love this book.



    You see, the thing I first love about the story is Juliette. She was used being weak and pathetic, thinking that she was a monster. It's nice seeing her so strong, so determined for a change. She was practically invincible ever since but that's what fear do to us, you know? It paralyzes us so that we'll not be able to do anything at all. But the worst fear there is? It's the fear in ourselves. It limits us and hinders us to show what were really capable of. I am very, very proud of Juliette (not only for the choice of guy) because she overcame her fears and face everything head on. I love her for her weakness and strength. "Fear will come to fear me." I don't know if that's the exact words but I felt terrified just reading them.


    Then there's Warner. AARON. Gah. ahhhhhhhh. @#h#kd#js#@ He was so ruthless and cold outside but that's not all there is. He was really vulnerable when you look at it. He bared his heart and soul to the one that matters most. He was afraid and brave at the same time. My heart broke for him. The lazy morning when they woke up? So cute. He was so adorable. I LOVE HIM WHEN HE BLUSHED. I can't freaking contain my grinning into minimal. Sometimes, while reading the story, i felt like an intruder. They are great together asdfghjkl sjsksodnidnsinsinkdbj #@hah#@jd (this is me, fangirling) Their relationship has never been so easy. As much as I like to have him for myself, I am freaking glad they end up with each other. (I told you, there's spoilers.) "Ignite, my love, ignite."


    I want to feel sorry for Adam but I can't. He's such a douche. What is wrong with a girl being strong and being able to stand for herself? We don't always need guys to protect us, you know. Maybe, it's really not love when you don't have other choices. Okaaaaaay, maybe I feel sorry for him. Just a little bit. He had it so hard. Okay. I don't hate him. It's he's pride and ego that is working. I loved him in the first book. I saw him as a savior, a swoon-worthy hero but he's just not Warner. I know, I know, I'm biased I don't care. But, I feel for Adam really. As I'm typing this, I realized that I can't possibly hate him you know? just because. He's been used as a tool for us to see the great side of Warner. Anyway, I adore James. He's just too cute.


    I love love love Kenji. Gosh, why wasn't he real? I love his jokes. I love him when he's serious. *shouts something inaudible* I will surely miss him.


    The end? It was okay but I would have wanted more. The fight went so fast but it is good nonetheless. What happened after? I really would like to know many things but I respect the author's decision to end there.


    The trilogy is great and I recommend it to you guys who doesn't mind a read with something so cheesy on the side. I'm terribly sad to see this series end.

    So, I'm thinking I should have stopped reading this series after the first book... It's not bad, but I kinda didn't like what the author did to the characters in the last two books and particularly in this (the third) one. I didn't understand the relationship between Juliette and Warner and wasn't quite certain Warner deserved to be rehabilitated as a character. Not the best of the dystopian genre...
  • (4/5)
    This was a great ending to wrap things up. I can't say much without giving certain things away,but I have to say I was happy with the way things turned out. Even though this was the final installment I still feel like there is more of a story to be told. I hope there is a story for Kenji!
  • (5/5)
    Inevitable spoilers for Shatter Me and Unravel Me. Spoiler Free for Ignite Me though! I wanted to read Ignite Me, because I have loved the books in the series (minus not being thrilled about the last novella) and I had to know what would happen in this dark world where nothing is quite as it seems. There is a love triangle that I am crazy for and I don't even know how I want it to end. My thoughts towards both have changed since I first met them and I usually have a gut feeling who will win out even if that is not the guy that I like the most. Warner has revealed so much about himself that I never would have guessed, showing he has a heart and the depths of his feelings for Juliette are great and that his actions have been carefully planned to try to win her heart and do things for the sector. Adam, I always just liked but despite their physical attraction and their past together, I just am torn because they have both changed so much since then and that really changes their dynamic. Plus of what I read in his novella, it really made me sad some of the thoughts and ways he viewed her and besides she makes a statement in this one that confirms another nagging suspicion I had. They are now on a more even playing field and I feel like they have had their books to shine, and I just need to know who will earn her heart and what will become of the other. So, not only did I want resolution for the love triangle that has stolen my heart, I also wanted to see further character development in Juliette and see how she steps up to be a key in peace and a better life in this dark world. Pretty quickly we get into the story and seeing some of this growth in Juliette. While she is torn apart and grieving over the losses, she sees this healing and second chance at life in a new way, with determination. She isn't sure if her friends are alive and she is still wavering on Warner, which is understandable because while he has revealed some and they have had some pretty intense and hot moments together, she hasn't been inside his head quite like we have, and there were still lots of dark choices he's had to make. I loved the conversations they had together and just seeing how softened he gets toward Juliette and when he loses his composure and we glimpse through the facades. We do get an answer about whether or not her friends are alive. We also get lots of insight into them in unexpected ways. Through Juliette we discover how heavy Kenji's burdens were with being the funny one, having to really shoulder his grief in different ways. We see the ruins of Omega, and know that it meant even if Adam and some others lived through it, then there were still great losses. I don't know if I have just completely gotten used to the style and there is also the fact that we aren't really experiencing things through Juliette's writing. But the writing and the way Juliette's mind works is really still just so poetic and beautiful to me. It is unlike anything I have read really and it makes the books extra special. I am glad that it is still there even if not as shocking as book one with the setup. And of course, Juliette makes a choice for which guy in this book, and with all of the work up to it, I agree with her so much. It ends up being the best decision for her, and the one that spurs her on to do what she needs to do to help bring down the reestablishment and make changes for a better world. It is someone who proves he sees her heart, believes in her, and has the love and support for her. There was a lot of action towards the end as well as some surprise characters that made life even more difficult for Juliette and crew. She had to make some hard choices along the way, but watching her learn her strength and how to not only be stronger for herself but for others was amazing to watch. She had more help learning to master her powers and how to use them in order to gain control and to take down Anderson. Ms. Mafi also manages to break up the tension and weight of their mission by some awesomely swoony scenes. One of the best YA scenes that while it eventually faded to black, it had me sweating and sighing, wishing I was Juliette in that moment. She also manages to write in some hilarious scenes that had me snorting and literally laughing out loud as I read. I did not want to put down this book, and I am wholly satisfied with this conclusion to this series that has captured my attention and my heart. Tahereh Mafi has a bold writing style and she took some risky moves in these books that paid off, and made me love and remember them even more than I thought possible. I think that the threads were tied off well, and that we have closure on the series, though I do think that it could have been well served with a bit of an epilogue, seeing a glimpse of Juliette's triumph and how the world begins to change into something better, and also a glimpse into the one not chosen to see how that works for him. But otherwise, perfection in hundreds of pages. I despised every moment I had to put the book down, and I am left with a Juliette and crew sized hole in my heart because I will miss these characters and their amazingly awesomeness. Bottom Line: F*ing awesome series conclusion. Brave, addictive, hot, and full of action, character growth and resolution.

    Added 16 Feb 2014:You know when you read a book and it rather sticks with you...and then something starts to nag at you, then yell at you, then start bouncing a rolling pin off your head? Well, that's why I had to update this review.Dont get me wrong, I loved the story but I cant help but see a bit of a issue. And Ill try my best to keep this spoiler-free...In any story, its easy to dislike a character because s/he's rude, borish, gross, asshatted, or just plain wicked and evil down to the metaphorically twisted mustache. In a love triangle, its so easy to go (or write, as it may be) down this road. Especially when your heroine doesnt pick "him" and goes with the guy the writer has planned.However, there is a big downfall in making a character morph from who they are simply to convince the reader she picked the right guy and not the "bad one". Ms. Mafi wrote these brilliant characters and suddenly one of her characters seemed to break away into this epic asshole land. I didn't like the character's complete change from who they were, from beginning of the trilogy to the end.Why make him a jerk and, even as another character confirmed, he wasn't acting like himself? His only crime was caring abt those around him and not getting the girl? It would have made much more sense to keep him in his character and show the reader why these two were wrong for each other, and in turn, why the other couple worked so well.Convincing a reader without showing why a character would suddenly go from sweet and caring to raging jerk was too convenient. It would be far more feasible and less of an easy way out for the author to write how two people can be good, but not good for each other. Leave out the out-of-character-180-degree behavior.This may not even phase readers but it did for me.Overall, I found this installment and ending to the series was very well done, despite my nagging, yelling, rolling pin thoughts. Still five stars from me.****5 Feb 2014Wow. I did not expect that. I did not expect to like the course of the story at. all. I was unbelievably surprised how much I loved it, to the very end
  • (3/5)
    This was a disappointing conclusion to the trilogy. I felt like too much time was spent on the Juliette, Warner, Adam thing, and not enough time spent on the overthrow of the government. Having said that, I'm still glad that I finished the series.

    Listened for Fun (Audible)Overall Rating: 2.50Story Rating: 3.00Character Rating: 2.00Audio Rating: 4.00 (not part of the overall rating) Part 3 of the Series Review: Maybe spoilerish though not on purpose. I just want to be as specific as I can why Ignite Me didn't work for me.First Thought when Finished: Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi was a little to heavy on the romance and "woe is me" angst for me to enjoy but I did enjoy books 1 and 2.Part 3 Thoughts:I swear I have decided that it is me not Dystopian series at this point! They sale like hot cakes and the endings seems to be a favorite of most everyone but me. Which BTW is not a bad thing, I love that there are books out there for every reader! I have decided that I need adult dystopian with no triangle and the last book should be dedicated to kicking ass, changing the world, and maybe getting the one guy/gal that you have been attracted to the whole journey(or at least going out in a blaze of glory). This is the 3rd YA one that I have read and rated the last book a 2. In each of those cases it was because the characters (or character) did something so unlike how I saw their character in my mind that it made me scream. In this case, the only character that I felt stayed on target was Kenji and he wasn't a main "3" player. I felt the complete 180 of Adam's personality (which I must admit I did not read the novellas which might have changed my mind) was out of left field and didn't make much sense to me. Warner while I find intriguing and would love get one of those people from Investigation Discovery channel to sit down and analyze was another "bad boy" who wins scenario. I believe in fresh starts and second chances but there are big issues that needed to be addressed in this case. Juliette--what can I say? She is bad ass unless she is wrapped up in angst which unfortunately was most of Ignite Me! Problem: Kenji wasn't around enough to put a stop to that ridiculousness. The actual bare-bones story part of Ignite Me I thought was pretty good and the end was actually satisfying. I wish more time would have been spent on that instead of the relationship drama. I think the action and suspense could have blown me away.Audio Thoughts: Narrated By Kate Simses / Length: 11 hrs and 57 mins Kate did a wonderful job. I thought she encompassed all of Juliette, Warner, and Adam. She brought to life their emotions (maybe a little too well) and nailed the pacing of each of them. Great Job overall!Final Thoughts: If you are a fan of dystopians then I do think you should give this world a whirl. Please go read other people's reviews because there are some great ones out there. I think they are more the audience that enjoys these stories and a more accurate reflection of how most people will feel. I just had to be honest about my feelings.

    Everything that I ever want a YA dystopian story to do, Tahereh Mafi does that thing. Every type of romance that I want to occur, Tahereh makes it happen.The Shatter Me series is everything I've ever wanted in a dystopian romance, and then some. Ignite Me is the perfect conclusion to the series. When I say perfect, I mean as perfect as the green of Warner's eyes, as the planes of his chest and the waves of his hair. Yes, that perfect. In Ignite Me we reunite with Juliette and Warner on the Sector 45 military base, where J. learns about the supreme commander's utter destruction of Omega Point. Juliette and Warner must reconcile their feelings for each other while trying to stay sane and plan to overthrow Warner's father. Anderson. The supreme. Juliette does most of the planning; she is confident and strong and learning more about her powers than she ever thought possible. She is the lifeline of the story, pushing it forward and pulling you along with her goals, her feelings, her needs. Because this is mostly a story about characters. About self-discovery and confidence. About being who you are and being okay with it. About getting stronger, and helping your friends, and being accepted by them. The drama between Juliette, Warner, and Adam centers around Juliette changing from a terrified, weak, pathetic, yet sweet little girl into a confident, strong, outspoken, and wild woman. Yes, she has changed, but here's the thing: Juliette wasn't herself before. Adam didn't fall in love with the real her. Warner was able to see who she really was all along, and he did terrible things to try and help Juliette realize that herself.And you know what? He did it. "You were right all along," Juliette says to him. It is amazing how Tahereh made us hate Warner at first, so fiercely. Yet now. . .now he is so dear to me. Warner has made an incredible impact on me throughout the Shatter Me series. More than Anderson, more than Juliette, more than Adam or even Kenji, Warner has had the most powerful and complex emotional experiences. I respect him so, so much, and I love Juliette for respecting him, too.Alright, can we talk about Tahereh's writing style? Because it is the best thing ever in any YA book. I am so serious right now. Juliette's stream of consciousness, free-thinking prose is simply incredible. I cannot get enough. It is so powerful, so compelling, and so *real*. I don't know how she does it so well, but I know I don't ever want this series to stop.

    This book screwed with my mind. It was a great book though. My only complaint is that the ending was unsatisfying. Almost as if the author rushed it. But then I learned new books are coming out to this series so I’m anticipating!

    Best book of the series. I did not find myself getting irritated or bored with this book. Other then the drinking game of "insane", it was pretty good. I did not want to stop listening to it, sucked into wanting to know what happened next.

    Rating: Five-starsIf you read Shatter Me and Unravel Me don’t even read this. Just go get Ignite Me and start reading! It’s Amazing!Spoilers!Okay wow! This book picks up right after the events of Unravel Me. Juliette refuses to believe everyone is dead and goes back to the ruins of Omega Point. Thank god, because she finds Kenji and meets with the survivors. At this point, Juliette has grown so much. She is ready to fight and although the group is broken they decide to join Warner and her and fight against the reestablishment.Characters: Like I said Juliette makes me proud. She has come so far. In the beginning, she hated herself and her power but in this book she totally owns up. She is determined and finally accepts her powers. She owns up to her feelings (finally) and accepts her true love. Aaron well what can I say. He is the most beautiful broken boy. Juliette broke his heart in Unravel me, (I’m still not over that.) and despite that he still saves her life and hides her from his father, the Supreme Commander. Ignite me shows us more of that vulnerable, sweet boy we finally met in Unravel me. He finally shows us who he really is. Sadly, he is a lot more hesitant towards Juliette, but it’s understandable. I mean she really did screw him over in Unravel me.I started disliking Adam in Unravel Me but that was nothing compared to Ignite Me. He was immature and selfish and a complete jerk towards Juliette. The only good thing that came out from his a-hole actions was that he pushed Juliette away for good.I can’t not talk about Kenji. He has to be the most wonderful best friend ever. I could talk about him or just show you some of his hilarious quotes.“No,” he says, pointing at me as he shifts backward again. “Bad Juliette. You don’t like to kill people, remember? You’re against that, remember? You like to talk about feelings and rainbows—”― Tahereh Mafi, Ignite MeHey, um, I’m sorry to bother you, but I’m looking for a friend of mine,” he says. “Have you seen her? She’s a tiny little thing, cries a lot, spends too much time with her feelings-”“Shut up, Kenji!”“Oh wait!” he says. “It is you.”― Tahereh Mafi, Ignite Me“So that’s it?” Kenji says. “You just like him for his personality, huh?”“What?”“All of this,” Kenji says, waving a hand in the air, “has nothing to do with him being all sexy and shit and him being able to touch you all the time?”“You think Warner is sexy?”“That is not what I said.”― Tahereh Mafi, Ignite MeI could go on forever because he is that awesome! The plot follows the characters efforts to destroy the reestablishment. The first half of the book is focused on them getting their group together and it’s not action packed. Despite that, I was never bored. However, the climax was like an X-men movie scene. It was awesome!The ending was abrupt. At first, I did not know how to feel about it. All my emotions were all over the place. After rereading it and spending a lot of time with my feelings, I loved it. In a way, I feel like their journey has just begun and they’re out there, right now, fighting and changing the word.Overall, this was an amazing ending to an amazing series. I can already feel my book hangover coming.

    This is the 3rd and last book for the Shatter Me series, the chance of spoilers is very high so just be cautious when reading this review. ( I personally advise you steering clear of this all together and not risk it) A Few points before I move on to the review, these are more points for people who have already read the book:Chapter 55. O.M.G I don’t think I've read any swoon worthy moment better than that in a few long time, before I read Ignite me all I was reading when I came across people talking about it was that chapter, and by god do I understand why, my heart… it was beating fast for far longer after than it should have been. The ending.. ok so that was disappointing, not what happened because I think it was pretty much set in stone from the off, but how little actually went in to the chapter that it happened. I felt like I had spent how ever long reading these incredibly books only to be completely let down by the end. Think Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows ’19 years later’ chapter and how pointless it was, well in my eyes the chapter that was the most important might as well not have even been in the book because it was just rushed and not enough effort was put in to. So yeah, I was very disappointed by the one chapter in it because it just spoil's what was a really good book. This books starts of where Unravel me ended, with Juliet being shot and Warner saving her life even though she broke his heart. He has her hiding out in his room with only one other person knowing exactly where she is or that she is alive for that matter. Omega point is gone, blown up but Anderson and Warner has to break the news to Juliet that no one survived. Of course that doesn't go as well as he hoped and she instantly demands to be taken to see for her self. It doesn't seem real that all her friends could be gone, just like that. Kenji, her best friend, James, Castle, Brendan, Winston, Sonya and Sara. All of her friends at omega point just wiped out. And of course Adam, her first love. Her friend when others shunned her and labelled her a monster, he couldn't possibly be gone.While struggling with her guilt of surviving when her friends didn't, she is also having to battle with maybe or maybe not having feelings for Warner, someone who tried to kill Adam, someone who pushed her and tortured her for his own gain. But she is finding that maybe he isn't the monster she thinks he is, and maybe, just maybe, she has misjudged him like she was once misjudged.One thing she is sure of and that’s her need for revenge. Right now its all she can think about, killing Anderson, the man responsible for so much misery and heart ache.When she recovers from her injury Warner keeps his promise and takes her out to see the remainder of omega point, she had come to convince herself that Warner was wrong, he had to be. But seeing it for herself causes her to completely collapse into herself feeling nothing but grief. Until Kenji turns up, bruised and a little worse for the war but very much alive, and bringing the news that he wasn't the only one.Now comes the planning, they know where Anderson is, and how to get to him. But can a small group of rebels really stop him? (Read it and find out ;) . )This book…. Just shut up. I have loved the world of Shatter Me since I first read Shatter Me last year, at first I didn't think I would like it so much but I was very intrigued by the summary. I loved Juliette's character from the get go and when Adam was introduced, well lets just say I swooned a bit. I read Unravel Me not long after as I was late on the old band wagon, but yet again I loved it, even though Warner was sadistic at times I couldn't help it, I was falling hard.With both Shatter Me and Unravel Me I was taken on an emotional roller coaster, feeling like no of my favorite's were safe. But neither of those two had any of the emotional heart ache/attachment that Ignite Me had (for me anyway) I very rarely cry at books (I came close in this one), I very rarely swoon anymore, and I find myself guessing the ending to the book with still 3/4s to go with around 60% of books I read. But I was blinded while reading this, I couldn’t feel, my heart was beating way to fast. In short this book was a perfect ending to the series. The characters true colours shined through in this book and it was just all really well written. Apart from the ending. I felt it was way way too rushed and thought more time could have been spent on such a crucial part in the story/series. Because even though there was a lot of planning though out the book, I’ll be honest and say that with the way the ending went, the book was more of a love story (not that I’m complaining haha).Anyway I’m very sad that its over and I wish there was more to it, but I’m really looking forward to seeing what Tahereh Mafi has to offer next, because for a debut series it wasn't half bad haha
