Genre: YA Dystopian/Fantasy
My Rating: 4 Stars!
In Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me, Juliette escaped from The Reestablishment by seducing Warner—and then putting a bullet in his shoulder. But as she’ll learn in Destroy Me, Warner is not that easy to get rid of. . .
Back at the base and recovering from his near-fatal wound, Warner must do everything in his power to keep his soldiers in check and suppress any mention of a rebellion in the sector. Still as obsessed with Juliette as ever, his first priority is to find her, bring her back, and dispose of Adam and Kenji, the two traitors who helped her escape. But when Warner’s father, The Supreme Commander of The Reestablishment, arrives to correct his son’s mistakes, it’s clear that he has much different plans for Juliette. Plans Warner simply cannot allow.
Set after Shatter Me and before its forthcoming sequel, Unravel Me, Destroy Me is a novella told from the perspective of Warner, the ruthless leader of Sector 45.
Dang it. I really really didn't want to like Warner. I didn't but yet, gah, darn Mafi, she made me feel for him. She made me like him even. Pity him even, and I really am heartbroken over it because I was so looking forward to expending so much energy to hating him. Now, whatever will I do? Where will all that disgust and hate go?
Oh, I know, to his blasted despicable father. The supreme. Yep, that is exactly where my hate and disgust can now reside.
Just when I think I have a handle on my feelings for this trilogy and its characters the author has to go and throw a curve ball in and make me feel even more and start to question everything....I love it and it makes me eager to continue on with the series. To experience whatever else the author plans on throwing my way.
