Review: Unravel Me

Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
Series: Shatter Me #2
Release Date: February 5, 2013
Genres: YA dystopia
Rating: 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

The thrilling second installment in New York Times bestselling author Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me series.

It should have taken Juliette a single touch to kill Warner. But his mysterious immunity to her deadly power has left her shaken, wondering why her ultimate defense mechanism failed against the person she most needs protection from.

She and Adam were able to escape Warner’s clutches and join up with a group of rebels, many of whom have powers of their own. Juliette will finally be able to actively fight against The Reestablishment and try to fix her broken world. And perhaps these new allies can help her shed light on the secret behind Adam’s—and Warner’s—immunity to her killer skin.

Juliette’s world is packed with high-stakes action and tantalizing romance, perfect for fans of the Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard and the Darkest Minds trilogy by Alexandra Bracken.

This book picks up right after Shatter Me, Juliette and Adam are at Omega Point, the headquarters of the organization trying to take down the Reestablishment. They are both trying to learn more about their abilities, as well as trying to tame them.

A lot happens in this book, which I loved. That was one of my peeves in the first book. This was one way a lot much action packed, and we also got to see a lot of sides to our characters.

I can see why everyone loves Kenji. Truly he is a treasure. I loved getting to know him more. He is still that funny playboy, but we saw that he really carried a lot of weight and responsibility on his shoulders. Juliette also grows a lot throughout the story. She has her moments of weakness, but I really like where she’s heading. Also, Kenji calling her out is my new favorite thing.

So Warner… yes I love him. He’s just such an interesting character. I wish we could dive into his head to see more from him. We got a lot more from him in this story. This book really showed him as a complex character. I also really like his relationship with Juliette. Chapter 50 was my favorite chapter by far. I think it really showed us a new angle to their connection and it really set up everything so well.

This series has become addictive. I can’t wait to see how the trilogy ends and then go on to the next part of the series!
