Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi Review

Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi
(Shatter Me, #1.5)
Release Date: October 2, 2012
Publisher: HarperCollins; 150 pages
Perfect for the fans of Shatter Me who are desperately awaiting the release of Unravel Me, this novella-length digital original will bridge the gap between these two novels from the perspective of the villain we all love to hate, Warner, the ruthless leader of Sector 45.

In Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me, Juliette escaped from The Reestablishment by seducing Warner—and then putting a bullet in his shoulder. But as she’ll learn in Destroy Me, Warner is not that easy to get rid of. . .

Back at the base and recovering from his near-fatal wound, Warner must do everything in his power to keep his soldiers in check and suppress any mention of a rebellion in the sector. Still as obsessed with Juliette as ever, his first priority is to find her, bring her back, and dispose of Adam and Kenji, the two traitors who helped her escape. But when Warner’s father, The Supreme Commander of The Reestablishment, arrives to correct his son’s mistakes, it’s clear that he has much different plans for Juliette. Plans Warner simply cannot allow.

Set after Shatter Me and before its forthcoming sequel, Unravel Me, Destroy Me is a novella told from the perspective of Warner, the ruthless leader of Sector 45.

Before I started out reading Destroy Me, I was about 70% Team Adam and 30% Team Warner...now, I'd say the playing field is pretty damn even. Wow. Did we learn a lot about Warner in this novella or what? He actually appears to be human...who would've thunk? ;)

Warner's obsession with Juliette; I thought that's all it really was was an obsession. However, it turns out it runs much deeper than that. Insanely deeper. Not only do we learn a lot about Warner but we learn a lot more about Juliette and her time locked up. We get a good peak inside of her head during all those long, agonizing months.

I don't know how much I can say without spoiling this entire novella. I want to talk about it so badly but I don't want to spoil it for any Shatter Me fans nor do I want to write this entire review hidden because of spoilers. What a dilemma...

Basically, whether you are a Warner fan or not, you want to read this. You see a different side of him, you get to see in his head and most importantly, you get to meet his horrid father. If you think Warner is horrible, he's like rainbows and butterflies when compared to his father. Plus, if you're a Shatter Me fan, you're probably dying for Unravel Me. This helps quench your thirst for more. It will tie you over (or make you want it to be February even more) - regardless, get it, read it and fall in love with Warner.
