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.
Shatter Me had such a break-neck speed, I expected more of the same in Unravel Me, and this book delivered!
I also read the novella Destroy Me in between these books and while I’m not doing a full review of it, it will be partially reviewed here.
The main thing going on in this book is Adam and Juliette’s relationship. Juliette who can’t touch anyone without killing them, but can apparently touch Adam just fine. Stick a pin in that because SPOILERS Adam’s not actually immune to her. Just resistant. So if they truly got together, Juliette will probably end up killing him. Fun stuff.
Enter Warner, everyone’s favorite villain who sadly didn’t die at the end of Shatter Me. And guess what? He CAN touch Juliette, no strings attached. So the one person Juliette could have a relationship with is this psycho-killer she despises.
I read Destroy Me and that still didn’t make me Team Warner. Still hate the guy. Still hate this brewing love triangle.
And Warner gets a chance to show a softer side to Juliette…sort of. Ugh. If Juliette ends up with Warner, I’m going to change all my 5-star reviews to 1-star reviews. What even.
So the stuff about Omega Point was pretty interesting, too. Everyone’s got powers. Everyone’s fighting The Reestablishment with said powers. More action and fun stuff leading up to Book 3. But let’s be real, this series is less a dystopian series and more a devastating romance. If you didn’t know that from all the chapters of breathless, sexual tension.
Also apparently there’s another novella before Book 3. I do not understand this trend in YA. It’s like the Stephanie Meyer thing, re-writing Twilight from Edward’s perspective. Like, we know you’re just trying to sell more books and make more monies. Ugh. Anyway, I guess I’m reading both Ignite Me (Book 3) and Fracture Me (Book 2.5) because now that I know it’s there, I kinda have to read it.
