Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi (Shatter Me #3)


[Publisher’s Review]

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.

[My Review]

This book has an original dystopian plot that is grounded in the paranormal. I truly enjoyed reading this book on my Kindle. Although there were multiple allusions to events that had already taken place – there were plenty of shocking new revelations to keep my mind occupied. Considering how the main character has grown and changed throughout the Shatter Me trilogy, I felt that Juliette was at her best in this book. No longer scared but ready to harness her power for a revolution.

I did not like how the author changed Adam’s character though. In the first book, he’s kind, gentle and basically the perfect boyfriend. Then the author transforms him into this cruel resentful stranger who can’t bear to see his ex-girlfriend in love with his enemy and brother (Warner). Aaron Warner, on the other hand, turns out to be a loving man who wants to help Juliette. Everything we’ve thought about him turns out be misinformed because Juliette misinterprets his actions. The truth is revealed and suddenly, we want Juliette and Warner to be a couple! But my favorite character is Kenji. Hilarious, snarky and filled to the brim with sarcasm – he plays the role of her best friend well. Simultaneously trying to maintain his friendship with Adam, Kenji is the group’s comedian but handles serious topics just as casually. Despite his overdone swearing, you can tell he truly cares for Juliette and loves James (Adam’s brother) like – well a brother.

The perfect book to wrap up an amazing series, Ignite Me will have you holding your breath to the end. I recommend this book to fans of the paranormal and dystopian.
