Overall Rating: 5/5★
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.
The Shatter Me series is perfect for fans who crave action-packed young adult novels with tantalizing romance like Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Legend by Marie Lu. Tahereh Mafi has created a captivating and original story that combines the best of dystopian and paranormal, and was praised by Publishers Weekly as “a gripping read from an author who’s not afraid to take risks.” Now this final book brings the series to a shocking and satisfying end.
I don’t think I’ve ever read a first 100 pages that quickly before, there’s just so many things that kept me on edge that I couldn’t put the book down. There’s so many revelation of personalities of different characters surfacing in Ignite Me. The friendships that developed during the most dire of situations felt real and true. I was surprised so many times throughout the book.
Juliette improved so much, she’s no longer the weakling and is able to make her own decisions and started to be ambitious. I like this strong side of her so much better than when she didn’t want anything to do with her ability. Juliette doesn’t know what is love, she haven’t been able to love herself for years, and because of those she doesn’t who she truly loves. So, I’m happy that Kenji was there the whole time for her when she needed a friend to talk to. Their friendship is simply adorbs. (I wonder if kenji likes her or not…)
Warner’s dedication towards Juliette increases each second. His willingness to help Juliette’s friends because of her astonishes them, and me. He was set up to be heartless antagonist, however, seeing this side of him make me aww so much too. I totally forgotten about his character in Shatter Me. lol.
Adam, adam, adam…. let’s say he changed. and my opinion of him changed, quite drastically, but he has his reasons.
Ignite Me is an extremely fast-paced book that consists of funny chapters, angsty characters, and gush-worthy moments. It’s totally worth the read. My heart stopped at the last chapter, and I’m so thankful Tahereh Mafi wrapped up the trilogy in the best way possible.
I hope you like the review! Let me know what you think about the book!
