Synopsis: 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.
“Come back to life, love. I’ll be here when you wake up.” -Warner
Ignite Me embodies every aspect you could ever wish for in the final book of a series. It’s emotional, empowering, satisfying, and most importantly, the best book in the entire series. Young Adult Dystopian trilogies too often struggle with tying up the lose ends in the last book, leaving the reader with a dissatisfied feeling toward the series as a whole. The Shatter me series did NOT have this problem at all. Each book gets better and better, and the character development in each book is perfectly executed. If you haven’t read Shatter Me yet and need a bit of convincing, please check out my Shatter Me review. I did not review Unravel Me because I was too busy, but I gave it 4.75 stars in Goodreads. This review for Ignite Me will contain spoilers for the rest of the series, seeing as it is the last book, and I want you to be able to enjoy this masterpiece of a trilogy as much as I did!
