In this electrifying sixty-page companion novella to the New York Timesbestselling Shatter Me series, discover the fate of the Omega Point rebels as they go up against The Reestablishment. Set during and soon after the final moments of Unravel Me, Fracture Me is told from Adam’s perspective.
As Omega Point prepares to launch an all-out assault on The Reestablishment soldiers stationed in Sector 45, Adam’s focus couldn’t be further from the upcoming battle. He’s reeling from his breakup with Juliette, scared for his best friend’s life, and as concerned as ever for his brother James’s safety. And just as Adam begins to wonder if this life is really for him, the alarms sound. It’s time for war.
On the battlefield, it seems like the odds are in their favor—but taking down Warner, Adam’s newly discovered half brother, won’t be that easy. The Reestablishment can’t tolerate a rebellion, and they’ll do anything to crush the resistance . . . including killing everyone Adam has ever cared about.
Fracture Me sets the stage for Ignite Me, the explosive finale in Tahereh Mafi’s epic dystopian series. It’s a novella not to be missed by fans who crave action-packed stories with tantalizing romance like Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Legend by Marie Lu.
So Adam…… I’m disappointed. He was not the same Adam, the way he thought of Juliette and Omega Point. I feel like Tahereh wrote this with the intention of making us all like Warner better, which I mostly already did. She says she doesn’t have a team, mostly all the authors who’ve written love triangles say that but I think it’s pretty obvious they do, Tahereh is team Warner, Cassandra Clare is team Jem, Suzanne Collins is team Peeta, ect…
I can’t really go further into this without spoiling it, but I do still want to talk about it so I’ll just write a spoiler section just like with the rest of my reviews.
Overall, I enjoyed the novella, not nearly as much as I enjoyed Destroy Me though. I’m still unsure on how to rate it, I wish we’d gotten a novella in Kenji’s point of view, that would’ve been great. He was so awesome, especially in the end.
Rating: ( 4 stars on Goodreads )
All I want to say is that I hated how weak Adam thought Juliette was, how she shouldn’t be here, she can’t fight, I was shocked and dissapointed because what happened to the Adam I knew? Warner would never think of Juliette as lowly as he did in this book. It was as if he didn’t care. I don’t mind that he would choose James over her, that’s totally fine but he didn’t even let Kenji go get her… Then when they got the the apartment he still didn’t want to get her. I understand that he didn’t want to leave James, but again….
When he said ” I don’t know if my allegiance is to James or Juliette ” it doesn’t have to be like that, when he said that, it genuinely felt like he was giving up on Juliette, and that was not okay.
Then when Kenji came back crying thinking Juliette was dead (which she’s not) I loved seeing the emotion from him, because it showed just how much he cared and that was beautiful. Adam didn’t even cry. I wished we’d gotten more, so that I could see his reaction after that, but the novella ended there. Ignite Me is in Juliette’s pov again, so when they find out she’s still alive, we’ll be seeing it from her perspective.
So yea, that’s all I had to say! Have you read it? leave your thoughts (:
