Review: Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi

13188676The 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.

I cannot believe that this series is done. I have nothing to read (other than companion novellas) that will have Warner or Juliette in it. Which is…heartbreaking. Mafi is an absolute genius, although it bothers me that Adam wasn’t….as developed as others, but that’s okay. I still think that Mafi is one of the most fluid and and captivating authors I’ve ever read. And I cannot explain how much I appreciate that in this series. It wasn’t only the story that kept me reading, it was Mafi’s smart choice of words and how the interlocked and complimented each other to the highest extent.

The Shatter Me trilogy is definitely a great journey, a lovely read, and I don’t think I’ll ever meet anyone who doesn’t like the series (if you don’t like it and your reading this, please let me know that I’ve been proven wrong, please take my ego down a few notches, I beg of you).  I cannot wait to see what the TV show will be like, and I most DEFINITELY cannot wait until Mafi releases more books.
