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.
Tahereh Mafi has a way of taking what you think you know and ripping it out of your brain and then stomping all over it. Be prepared for a game changer. Unravel Me is not your typical filler-sequel. A lot of action is going down in Unravel Me as well as a lot of crazy emotion and I was barely hanging on for the ride. I loved diving father into the heads of certain people and finding out what made them tick. At the same time, I would think I had someone figured out and an anvil would drop on my head!
I love how Juliette really grew more into herself and her powers in Unravel Me. She really became a more independent creature and began to thrive. I loved seeing her less self-conscious. Kenji, who again, was one of my favorite characters, was a big part of breaking her out of her shell. He really just tells her how it is, no BS. I love that about him.
Warner plays a much larger role in Unravel Me and there is one scene with between him and Juliette that had my heart beating in over drive and breaking in to a thousand pieces. While I came to love Warner so much more in Unravel Me, I think we were really shorted on time with Adam. He just wasn't given his fair dues. I am completely torn as to which guy I like more. I'm Team Juliette at this point.
Unravel Me has a deep sense of foreboding over much of it and when the other shoe drops, it drops hard. The action is explosive and the ending, while not a terrible cliffhanger, still has me counting down days until I can get my hands on the next installment.
