Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi

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.

Part 2 of the Series Review

First Thought when Finished: Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi ramped up the story, plot, and pacing to a blistering speed that I enjoyed!

Part 2 Thoughts:

I picked up Book 2 of the series because Shatter Me got me wondering what was going to happen to Juliette. I am going to say upfront that while in Shatter Me it was the characters who shined, in Unravel Me it was the story that blew me away. The pace was blistering and the action was top notch. I felt every moment was fueled with something significant that would impact all the players. The players changed positions in Juliette’s life and the way that they changed made the story plow forward in a way that you knew was going to give you a “WOW” ending (which delivered). The angst was kept to a minimum and survival was first and foremost in every person’s mind. My favorite character had to be Kenji. I think he was the voice of reason in the story. He called BS when it was happening and told everyone (in a very blunt way) to keep their eye on what was important. I liked that he called the “angst” on the floor and said drop it. There needs to be a character like Kenji in EVERY angst-filled (or potential) story. The Juliette/Adam relationship stuff was the only thing that I think drew me out of the story at times and part of the reason I think the characters weren’t “wowing” me in Unravel Me. I felt that Juliette was growing (and going through some growing pains) but that Adam’s lack of communication with her was making this far more “over the top” than it needed to be.

Final Thoughts: So much story to go and can’t wait to see how it ends!

    Very nice review Felicia, thank you. It almost seems as if love triangles are mandatory in YA, that publishers don’t want books without it. And readers do. At least, I do. I am still not attracted to this series though, dystopian is just not my genre.

    And this is where I admit to not reading past 1.5 o_O I always intended to (still do), but it slipped through the cracks. I don’t know if the novellas are available in audio but 1.5 is a Warren POV that is pretty good. Glad you’re still liking it (although I saw you weren’t thrilled with the conclusion . . .).
