Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi - Book Review

Title: Ignite Me 
Author: Tahereh Mafi 
Publication: February 4, 2014 
Series: Shatter Me #3 
Format: Hardcover 
My Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥


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.

My Review:

** spoiler alert ** Wow. This book was perfection. I have no idea why so many people did not like this book, I thought it was fantastic! I could not put it down. I did not see this coming from the book. There was amazing romance, action, fighting and just amazing. 

- Juliette
Juliette was so much better in this book. She wasn't a baby like in the other books, even though I still loved them. She is more strong (physically as well) and I am so happy how it ended up for her. She was more confident and was simply amazing in battle. She knows how to take charge and is great main character. 

- Warner
I fell in love with Warner through this book. You see so much good in him and you realize why he made all the choices he made. I cried for him a few times, he is so sweet and nothing like the man I read in Shatter Me or Unravel Me. I loved this Warner *Aaron* so much more. 

- Adam
What do I say? He broke my heart. This entire time in Shatter Me and Unravel Me I could never see Juliette with Warner and thought Adam was amazing for her but he was horrible in this book. He made me cry and was such a jerk. I dropped my book once on one of his outbursts, I was in complete shock. I could not believe it was the same Adam from book one and book two. I did not want to believe how he was turning, I just couldn't fit my head around it. 

- James
I love James so much. I wish he were my little brother instead, he is just so adorable. I absolutely love this little boy. He was so cute whenever he talked to Warner, it was just cute. 

- Kenji
Kenji, hilarious as always. He made me burst into laughter with the "Bruce Lee" line. He is an awesome best friend to Juliette and did I mention hilarious? His power is so cool, to turn invisible and others? I wish I had that one. 

Overall, I absolutely loved this book. I think I would have loved it more if Adam weren't such a jerk. I still can't believe how he acted. I am so happy for Warner and Juliette and I will definitely be reading the sequels to this series. I am so happy I read this book and was stunned, I honestly had no idea I was going to love this book so much. I thought it was pure perfection and thought the scenes rolled out really nicely. This was an excellent ending to the trilogy of Shatter Me.


  1. I loved this book as well! I couldn't believe how fast Adam turned his attitude around from sweet to jerk - it was so sad!
