Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi Book Review


Title: Ignite Me

Author: Tahereh Mafi

Genre: Young Adult/Dystopian/Romance

Pages: 408

Format: Paperback

Rating: 4/5 stars

Goodreads Synopsis: With Omega Point destroyed, Juliette doesn’t know if the rebels, her friends, or even Adam are alive. But that won’t keep her from trying to take down The Reestablishment once and for all. Now she must rely on Warner, the handsome commander of Sector 45. The one person she never thought she could trust. The same person who saved her life. He promises to help Juliette master her powers and save their dying world . . . but that’s not all he wants with her.

The Shatter Me series is perfect for fans who crave action-packed young adult novels with tantalizing romance like Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Legend by Marie Lu. Tahereh Mafi has created a captivating and original story that combines the best of dystopian and paranormal, and was praised by Publishers Weekly as “a gripping read from an author who’s not afraid to take risks.” Now this final book brings the series to a shocking and satisfying end.

Spoiler-Free Thoughts: 

This review will probably be a bit shorter than normal because it’s the third book in the series, I can’t say much without spoiling.

As always Tahereh’s writing was beautiful. I can’t wait for her new book, I don’t even know what it’s about, all I know is that it comes out in August, I just need more of her writing.

Once again, the characters are likeable and amusing to read about, I didn’t hate anyone which is good because hating a character usually hinders my reading experience.

Again, there wasn’t really envy world building but at this point I wasn’t really expecting it so it’s not like I was disappointed by that.

The only thing is I didn’t like who Juliette ended up with, but I also didn’t really like the guy she didn’t end up making with. (If you’ve read the series you’ll know who I’m talking about.)

This series in total is about 4/5 stars for me. If you are a big dystopian fan then I would definitely recommend it, it’s better than a lot of dystopians I’ve read. I tend to not like dystopians because I don’t love them as much but I really really enjoyed this series! If you ar a fan of beautiful and incredibly metaphoric writing I would suggest you pick up the first book in the series Shatter Me. 🙂

  1. I want to cry.. There are too many books I want to read and there isn’t enough time to read them, plus I am a horribly slow reader. 😥

    I will be reading The Wrath and the Dawn soon as well as The Star-Touched Queen, along with a host of other great books. I don’t know when I will have time to read Shatter Me, but I hope I get to sometime this year. Tahere Mafi is such a lovely person. I follow her on Twitter and can’t wait to read her work…one day.
