Goodreads Synopsis:






it's almost

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.

My Review:

Oh Tahereh, you have done it again, you have captured my heart with your characters and completely blown my mind with everything that you write! Reading SHATTER ME last year, I was in a bubble of emotions and loved every minute of the book, Mafi has such a unique writing style that just draws readers in, so when book 2 finally hit shelves I was on a mission to find a copy along with Michele from Just A Lil' Lost and when I did, I dove right into the book.

I will admit, Juliette was a bit hard to read about in the beginning, she is very much like herself in the first book, very woe is me and self pitying and it just seemed like she needed to get over herself. I loved Kenji and Juliette working together because he was the only one who really told her off for hiding out for so long, and he brings out this other side of Juliette. And honestly with all this TEAM WARNER/ADAM stuff out there (I am all for Adam) I want to throw in Kenji... he was adorable and so funny, he was by far my favourite character in UNRAVEL ME.

There is so much more character development in this book, as much as Juliette got to me, I understand what she was going through and loved watching as she came around slowly. I loved how everything is revealed a little at a time, Tahereh brings in so many twists in this book that I feel like my mind was completely blown and I needed more! The best part of Tahereh's writing style is how different it is, yet so emotional, this is one of those books that you can just feel everything coming out of the character's, and I love how there are those scratched out remarks making you see that feelings are still being hidden.

And then of course Chapter 62... with all the talk surrounding it I kept wondering when I would get to it. And wow did Tahereh get that scene right! I am so glad I was not in public when I read it, it was hot and steamy and so well done! Tahereh you have stolen my heart with this series, and I am so scared to see how this will all end!


  1. Thank you! I'm all for Team Adam too! I can't wait to read this one. Great review!

  2. Dang, this sounds soo incredible!! I STILL need to read Shatter Me, unfortunately, but it is so exciting to read about how good the sequel is! Gives me something to look forward to if all the books are good. Can't wait to meet all the characters and read about all the scenes that you mention!

  3. Kenji is so fantastic! I felt like he was the voice of the reader of every novel where the protagonist is so wrapped up in his/her romance drama that he/she doesn't see the bigger picture!
