SYNOPSIS: 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.

The third and the final book in the Shatter Me trilogy. I did not like the first book all that much and I rather disliked the second one but the third book was all I had left of this series so I just had to read it!

THE WORLD: The world is harsh and violent. The post apocalyptic setting should tell you all. All the people are scared and controlled, if you disobey you will die. If you get in their way - you die. If they did not like the colour of your eyes - you will die. Who are they? The Reestablishment. Really the monsters that now are running the world. Actually, I do not know why exactly but this world is really much as how Nazi world is portrayed in the movies. I never watch these movies but I do love the world Tahereh Mafi created in this book.

CHARACTERS: Juliette is the main character of the story in general. She has an amazing ability of being extremely powerful, now she can even project her power so it is no more just lethal touch. Juliette can literary blow up the earth. She doesn't but she totally could. What I like about the final book is that finally Juliette is not a whiny silly girl anymore scared of every shadow. She is strong. She knows what she wants and she takes it. Go Juliette! Another important character in this book and my future husband is Warner aka Aaron...ah...

So I was always in love with him, from page one really. But now everything makes sense of course and he is just...he is just Warner. Read the book and you will know what I mean, pinky promise.
To my absolute happines Adam is barely present in this book! Whoop whoop!

LOVE: It is just clear from page one. We finally are paid for all our angry emotions during book one and two. It is happening and it is happening all the way! Sail sail my ship made of steel!

PLUS: It makes sense. No more bullshit! It is good, really good final book!

MINUS: The ending was a little bit too fast for me. But it is not that big of a deal as long as it was really good.

OVERALL: Okay so to be honest I did not expect this kind of plot. After reading the end of book one I expected it to be more like x-men, lots of action and not so much feelings. I was rather disappointed as book two is really just Juliette crying and Adam pissing me off so much I almost threw the book into a wall a few times. Well many times. But the final book three actually saved it big time, so well well done Tahereh Mafi!
