Review: Ignite Me (Shatter Me #3)


Ignite Me
By Tahereh Mafi

Source: Personal purchase, paperback
Genre: Young Adult, Dystopian, Romance

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.

Wow! I am still breathless from my book. It was so beautiful that it left me utterly speechless, and I enjoyed it so much. I will definitely miss the Shatter Me series so much - Tahereh’s writing is so lyrical and was my favourite element of the series. I was swooning throughout the entire book: it was purely stunning.

One of the things I enjoyed so much was the characters. Although Juliette was still a little annoying at the start, she changed so much through the book. By the end, she was strong and independent, and could finally make decisions for herself. I was really impressed with the way she changed in such a short amount of time.

Warner was definitely my favourite character. He had so much depth and backstory, meaning he was incredibly interesting to read about. I loved how we found out a little more of him in sections - I was constantly waiting for more Warner scenes! Seeing his relationship develop with Juliette was also one of my favourite elements.

The things that made this book not as good were the ending and the action scenes. The action was very rushed, and we didn’t get to see much of Juliette finally turning badass. The book ended on an action scene which meant the ending was rushed. I would have been much more content if even just an epilogue had been added because I felt the story ended so suddenly.

Another of the things that I loved so much about this series is that it’s so addictive. I read this entire book in 2 sittings, and under 12 hours (which must be some sort of record for me!). I was constantly hooked because it was so exciting. I know that I will read anything Tahereh Mafi ever writes because her style is so addictive.

Overall, this was a really good book. I was disappointed with the ending, yet still deeply loved it.
