Goodreads synopsis:

     The heart-stopping conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series, which Ransom Riggs, bestselling author of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, called “a thrilling, high-stakes saga of self-discovery and forbidden love.”

     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.


     This was the perfect way to end the series! This had to be the best book of the series! I usually never say that about sequels, but this was a pretty great ending. I have very few negative points to make about it. Here is what i had problems with: 

  1. Adam's attitude once again- he was a total "douche-canoe". He cannot accept that Juliette isn't the same girl that she was before. I cannot completely hate him but I don't like the way he was treating Juliette and how unforgiving he was to Warner until he finally told him that they were brothers. 
  2. That's it.
  3. I pretty much loved it.
  4. You should totally read this trilogy!

     Kenji, bless him, is such an amazing friend to Juliette. He supports her choices and listens to her and does what he thinks to be the best for the whole group, and the fate of the world. He has this bond with James that I love and he's the comic relief that the bleak setting needs. 

    And then there's Warner!!! ASKGLJSHGAOHFOAL His character growth was astounding! Not only did you find out why he does what he did and you find out that he's not as evil as we all thought. Tehereh Mafi... a round of applause for writing chapters fifty-five, fifty-six, and fifty-seven...OTP OTP

     I also loved that Tahereh Mafi kept up the with the style of writing where it looks like Juliette is writing the story but you can still see what she's thinking but she doesn't think is appropriate to say. I also loved that Juliette finally accepted her abilities and she worked it!

Favorite character: Warner or Juliette

Least favorite character: Anderson
