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 fell in love with Shatter Me. Like, it was love at first chapter. Getting the chance to read Unravel Me had me jumping around the room with glee. It.did.not.disappoint. Oh my gosh, it certainly did not disappoint. Actually, I had high expectations of this book and it exceeded them, which is insane. I cried at least three times throughout the book though it was probably more. They sort of blended together. There were chapters that were so hot I found myself fanning myself. After reading both Shatter Me and Destroy Me I went from being 70% Team Adam / 30% Team Warner to being about even. This book fluctuated. I actually think I may be slightly more on Warner’s side. *highlight to view spoiler* I mean, Aaron’s side…yes, that is Warner’s first name…but that is not the biggest shock factor… *end spoiler*
As much as I love the love triangle between Warner, Juliette and Adam I really think my absolute favorite character is Kenji. We get to see so much of him and he has different sides. He has the best lines, hands down, in this book and he has such a vibrant personality you can’t help but love him. He also seems so real. Not to mention, I should have counted the amount of times he said ‘shit’ in this book, it was definitely his favorite word. (My favorite saying from him is “Holy shit on a cracker”) Kenji is so much more powerful than you could ever imagine. He is one of the best people Juliette could have around her. He helps her harness her powers and he loves to joke with her but he doesn’t bullshit with her. He tells her how it is and I adore that about him. He is blunt and well, someone needs to be so I’m glad it’s him.
Adam is so damn swoon-worthy. He truly is. I’m swooning over him right now, actually. He’s so passionate and in love with Juliette it makes me incredibly jealous. My heart breaks for him in this book, hell my heart breaks for a lot of characters in this book but Adam is the first and the heart break never stops. He goes through an incredible amount of growth and discovery; I really can’t wait to see what he manages to do in the last novel.
Juliette. Oh Juliette. Where to begin with you? I want to give her a hug. We thought we all knew the extent of her power but it turns out, she can become so much more than what she already is. It’s actually rather frightening what she is truly capable of.
We also find out in the hands of one of the guys who loves her, she is a danger to him but in the hands of another guy, she can share her extreme power. It’s quite a miraculous find…
Without writing a ten or so page review, there is not enough space for me to write about everything I want to write about. This book is so much more addicting than Shatter Me and I thought that book was like a drug. This book is like being addicted to everything with no restraint control whatsoever (not that I would really know what that feels like but you get my drift…).
Basically, if you’ve read and loved Shatter Me there is absolutely no reason for you not to pick this book up the day it’s out. If you haven’t read Shatter Me then I ask, why not? You really need to get on that. Unravel Me was so much better than Shatter Me which is saying a lot because I loved Shatter Me.
