Ignite Me - Tahereh Mafi
Here is the Goodreads 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.
My Thoughts:
**Any book review will most likely contain spoilers**
My review of this book contains some things from the first two books in this series: Shatter Me & Unravel Me.
I enjoyed these books however, even though Unravel Me ended in cliffhanger I was not rushing to pick up the next book Ignite Me. I did enjoy Tahereh Mafi’s writing but I somewhat went into a reading slump after Unravel Me. I was interested in wanting to know how the story ends but I only just liked this series rather than loved it. I think it was the love triangle aspect of the story, I am finding that they are way over used in YA novels and I really do not care for them.
I enjoyed the character development of Juliette and how she went from being week and feeble to this invincible person. In the beginning she was this tortured character who felt she did not even deserve to live. She really was her own worst enemy in her mind, and then she developed into a strong woman who just took charge. I was really getting tired of Adams whininess in this book, which made me like Warner even more. Deep down I always hoped that Warner really was a good guy, but was only acting the way he was to intimidate those around him. The ending of this book seemed a little unresolved to me, I felt it abruptly ended. This series needed an epilogue to tell the story of what happens after. The ending almost made it seem like there should have been more. Just little things like James learning Warner was his brother, and Juliette clearing things with Adam. Overall, I did like this series and I would recommend it.
