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.

Spoiler Free Thoughts:

This is just going to be a shorter review because my thoughts are similar to my thoughts on the first book. (Click here for my Shatter Me full review)

Overall I do have to say I liked the first book better. There was no more world building in this one than the last, so I was still confused about what happened before the series and why the war was started and such.

Again, Tahereh’s writing is so beautiful. I am so in love with it, especially her metaphors. I can 100% see myself rereading this series, or at least Shatter Me, solely for the writing.

I am still loving all the characters. Juliette sometimes gets on my nerves but other than that I love Kenji and James a lot. As for Adam and Warner, I don’t particularly love either of them but I don’t hate them. I also hate love triangles so that might be a reason for me not liking either of them.

In the end I gave this book 4/5 stars, it was really good and I’m enjoying reading the series, I can for sure see how people love these books, dystopians and love triangles aren’t my favourite that’s all. 🙂

  1. Just say no to love triangles. But that’s not what didn’t totally do it for me with this book. I’d probably give it 3.5 stars. The writing is good and downright poetic in places, but there was a certain coldness or emptiness to the storytelling that kept me from feeling fully invested in Juliette.
