it's almost
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.

My Thoughts:

This was definitely better than the first book. There was brilliant character developments from more than one character. We got to read about some characters that were introduced in Shatter Me and we also become acquainted with some new characters. The plot gets deeper and much more complicated, things get tangled, and emotions fly high. Alliances are created, broken, and repaired in many different ways all throughout the story.

“Tattoos, for example, are very hard to forget. I think there's something about the impermanence of life these days that makes it necessary to etch ink into our skins. It reminds us that we've been marked by the world, that we're still alive. That we'll never forget.”

I think I enjoyed the second half of the book more than the first half. However that is not implying that the first part wasn't also good, I just liked the second half more. The character dynamics get more in-depth, the world building gets a bit more explored and we get a whole lot more powers. All-in-all it's some crazy fun and Kenji just makes everything so much better. If Tahereh ever decides to write a book in Kenji's perspective I'll be a super happy camper.

“You sick piece of shit," Adam says to him, his voice low, measured.
"Such unfortunate language." Warner shakes his head. "Only those who cannot express themselves intelligently would resort to such crude substitutions in vocabulary.”

Tahereh's books are easy, fast reads, and Unravel Me is no different, even though it's the biggest book within the trilogy. If you've read Shatter Me and Destroy Me then why are you waiting to pick this book up? Trust me, you want to read this installment, it's good. And then you're gonna want to continue onto the other books. I know from personal experience.

  1. I agree that this book was much better than the first, though the last is easily my favourite :)
