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.
Don’t look for action in the first 150+ pages because it starts off slow, but after that mini lull in the book, it starts to take off, and boy was I reeling at the intensity of the entire book by the end. I can only say it starts off like a roller coaster, and before you know it, you’re plunging down a huge hill, and then another, only to be whipped back and forth into a loop. That’s how I felt reading Unravel Me, like riding a roller coaster. I was horrified at the abuse that was being revealed on the pages, I kind of wanted to skip it. Too horrific and too destructive. I can’t even imagine any of it being real. But I’m guessing it’s what makes the characters so much stronger and much more passionate.
Juliette is so vulnerable and so torn between the two that you can’t help but feel pity for her. The experiences she goes through, the emotions that run through, the pain that she’s afflicted, you are transported once again into her world. Into her life, and it’s excruciating to read. Juliette comes alive on the pages, and she is so wonderfully developed in Unravel Me that I can’t help but want to hug her and want to be her friend. Now I can understand why everyone is gunning for Kenji. He tells the truth in such a way that makes you feel shameful! Kudos Kenji! He is more or less the sidekick, but what a wonderfully written one at that. He is surprisingly one of my favourite characters.
And the swoon worthy begins! Juliette and Adam’s heavy make out sessions just make my body temperature rise rise rise! There’s a little bit of Adam in every corner of this book, and I’m completely fine with that, but if you haven’t read Destroy Me, I completely switched sides. I’m on Team Warner now.. I’m probably a little bit in love with Warner the fictional character.. Two amazing twists have been revealed in this part of the trilogy and I love love love it! A little bit of a megalomaniac, a little too perfect, but also incredibly and deeply scarred and flawed. His character is probably the most interesting one out of all the characters. He is much more than the soldier he was brought up to be. And just WOW on his intense desire and passion for Juliette.
I’m in love Tahereh’s poetic writing style and at 465 pages, it’s a monster to read in one sitting. I’m sure others will read it in one day, and if you’re like me, I’m already gunning to re-read it again. It’s that wonderful and intense. I want to read it over again just so I can find out if I missed anything. This is a complete perfect for me. If you love romance, action, drama, and dystopia, this book is your book to read. Love love love this one!
Loved each of these characters, they add so much to the plot.
Slow in the beginning, then it raced along until the very end.
Beautiful, but I don’t actually understand the icy eye?!? I’m glad they redesigned the covers, but now my books don’t match.
Most definitely a character filler novel, but I didn’t mind.
Overall, an amazing novel with incredible characters that developed and matured. Pick this one up on release date, you won’t be sorry.
