Perfect for the fans of Shatter Me who are desperately awaiting the release of Unravel Me, this novella-length digital original will bridge the gap between these two novels from the perspective of the villain we all love to hate, Warner, the ruthless leader of Sector 45.

In Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me, Juliette escaped from The Reestablishment by seducing Warner—and then putting a bullet in his shoulder. But as she’ll learn in Destroy Me, Warner is not that easy to get rid of. . .

Back at the base and recovering from his near-fatal wound, Warner must do everything in his power to keep his soldiers in check and suppress any mention of a rebellion in the sector. Still as obsessed with Juliette as ever, his first priority is to find her, bring her back, and dispose of Adam and Kenji, the two traitors who helped her escape. But when Warner’s father, The Supreme Commander of The Reestablishment, arrives to correct his son’s mistakes, it’s clear that he has much different plans for Juliette. Plans Warner simply cannot allow.

Set after Shatter Me and before its forthcoming sequel, Unravel Me,Destroy Me is a novella told from the perspective of Warner, the ruthless leader of Sector 45.

{This review will be spoiler free for Destroy Me, but might include mild spoilers for Shatter Me.}

I cannot tell you how much I loved reading from Warner’s point of view. It was amazing. In Shatter Me, he’s portrayed as this ruthless psycho leader, but in Destroy Me we really get in inside look into his mind. His struggles, his fears, his feelings, it was beautiful. It was explained why he did some of the things he did in Shatter Me and that was beautiful. I finally understood and saw the Warner that everybody loved. He’s not horrible, not at all really and most importantly, he really truly cares for Juliette, he’s not just obsessed with her in the creepy way we saw in Shatter Me. It’s genuine love. I said in my Shatter Me review how sassy Warner was, and he was just as sassy in this book, and I really loved that. You truly understand that Warner doesn’t agree with The Reestablishment, and he really cares about the people. I think he should be the Supreme Commander to be honest, because he is a great leader. We also meet his father (the actual Supreme Commander) and calling him horrible is an understatement. Once you see what Warner had to deal with, the kind of father he had, you can understand him a lot better. Warner is really neat, I think he might be OCD lol. Also is he british? , because the way he speaks seems like it. I’m picturing him as british which makes him even more attractive ♥ Reading this novella, I love Warner now. I just finished Unravel Me, and I love him still. I’m reading Fracture Me now, the novella set between Unravel Me and Ignite Me in Adam’s PoV. I still like Adam I really do, so I’m really conflicted because idk… 

Okay that’s it! If you haven’t read Destroy Me then do, even if you’ve already finished the series (: It was great xx
