Destroy Me (Shatter Me 1.5) by Tahereh Mafi

Destroy Me (Shatter Me, #1.5)Destroy Me (Shatter |Me 1.5) by Tahereh Mafi published Jan 1 2012 by Harper Teen. CDN $2.99 Kindle edition

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.

I wasn’t sure if I was going to read this novella as it didn’t see to be relevant to the story.  Then I couldn’t decide if I should read it before or after I read Unravel Me and Ignite Me.  I decided to finish the story first and then go back and read this novella from Warner’s perspective.

First off I have to say OMG I loved reading from Warner’s POV! I loved getting to see his side of the story and have insight into what made him tick.  I’m actually glad I waited to read it because I think it would have ruined the series for me to read it first.  I liked knowing only what Juliette knew making me understand her decisions and actions all the more.

This was totally worth the read if you are a fan of the series. I’ve always had a soft spot for Warner so it was a real treat reading this.  I’m going to go read Fracture me now and see Adam’s side of the story.

5 stars for me.

Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi

Ignite Me (Shatter Me, #3) Ignite Me (Shatter Me #3) by Tehereh Mafi. Published Feb 4, 2014 by Harper Collins CDN $11.99 Kindle Edition.

Juliette now knows she may be the only one who can stop the Reestablishment. But to take them down, she’ll need the help of the one person she never thought she could trust: Warner. And as they work together, Juliette will discover that everything she thought she knew – about Warner, her abilities, and even Adam – was wrong. (Goodreads Excerpt)

I have to say OMG I loved this book!  This was probably the best ending to a trilogy that I have ever read.  It was as good, if not better than the first one. That is really hard to do I might add. 

Everything that I hoped from this book has come to be.  Juliette’s character has so much growth and change in this book.  I love the new badass, kick some butt, take life by the horns amazing character that she is…and of course her powers are amazing.  I have a thing for superpowers that can destroy!  Its the sadist in me I guess…lol.  I had a soft spot for Warner after reading Unravel Me but I was always holding out for Adam.  I have to say this book changed my mind in a big way.  I love how the triangle was finally figured out.  (I won’t say how…don’t want to spoil it.) Mafi does an excellent job with reeling you in as a reader and making you invested in the outcome.   OH and does she ever turn up the HEAT in this book!  Uh huh…

I don’t want to say anything else for fear that I will spoil it.  I hate spoilers.  So I will leave it at this…this is one amazing book and a fantastic end to the trilogy. 

5 amazing stars for me.
