The heart-stopping conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series, which Ransom Riggs, author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and Hollow City, 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 was definitely waiting forever to finish this one and finally I am done. Not totally sure what to do with myself. The “Shatter Me” series is complete. Where am I supposed to go from here? I think this series has changed my mind about so many predictions and likes and dislikes since the first book. I don’t think I switched around my shipping teams so much in a series. Usually I choose one and stick to it, but I feel like I got to know Warner and Adam so much in these books that I would be happy with Juliette ending up with either one. Kenji is still one of the best characters in this book. I will always love him.

“Ignite Me” by Tahereh Mafi….the end is here. I have to say that not all of my questions were answered unfortunately. I really wanted to know where people’s powers came from. Why doesn’t Anderson have powers? His kids did so why doesn’t he? Under that same line of thinking wouldn’t the other kids have parents with powers? Why didn’t Juliette’s mom have powers? These are the things I wanted to know but never got an answer too.

Mafi’s writing as improved with her books. I really liked the fact that this was a dual point of view.  I think having a dual point of view added a lot of value to the story and it’s ending. I really like how Juliette has grown through out the series and how grown up she is now. Juliette has gone through so much and she has grown up a lot. As the reader to take that journey with her, I am so proud of her. I liked the last installment of the “Shatter Me” series. I feel like the characters all ended up how they should have. I can’t wait to see what Mafi has in store for her readers next.
