the blurb

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.

my review

This is one of those series that I am desperately sad to see end.  It was engrossing and emotional from the very beginning and I completely fell into it!

That being sad, this book was a satisfying conclusion to the story.  Juliette really came into her own.  That is character that has come a long way since the opening lines of Shatter Me.  From a traumatized and barely human girl to the powerful and confident person she is now.  That’s a pretty beautiful thing to see.

It was full of action, twists and turns, surprises… you name it.  My heart bled for Adam, it bled for Warner.  The emotional range in this book is enormous.  There are some heartwrenchingly bitter moments right alongside some tender, beautiful moments.  There is hope.  There is despair.

The best thing about these books was that there were no clear lines.  There were things to love and to not love about all of the characters and that is just real life.  There are shade of gray everywhere.

The ending seems a little open so maybe I can dream for a spin-off or a companion series?! But still, this is a must-read for this amazing series!
