it's almost

time for war.

Juliette has escaped to Omega Point. It is a place for people like her—people with gifts—and it is also the headquarters of the rebel resistance.

She's finally free from The Reestablishment, free from their plan to use her as a weapon, and free to love Adam. But Juliette will never be free from her lethal touch.

Or from Warner, who wants Juliette more than she ever thought possible.

In this exhilarating sequel to Shatter Me, Juliette has to make life-changing decisions between what she wants and what she thinks is right. Decisions that might involve choosing between her heart—and Adam's life.

Unravel Me is the sequel to Shatter Me, the story of a young woman who has spent most her life in isolation because no one knows how to deal with her power. Unravel Me picks up not long after Shatter Me left off. Juliette, Adam and Kenji are in Omega Point, an underground community for those with powers run by Castle. Juliette is trying to fit in and struggling, she isn't used to being in close quarters with others and it's not helped by the fact that they all know what she can do and are scared.

As usual, I loved Tahereh's writing, the way she writes and tells Juliette's story means you can feel everything Juliette does, and you even see what Juliette doesn't want to feel which I equally love. You see right into Juliette's mind and thought process in this novel. The way this story is put down on paper is one of my favourite things about this series. I have never read anything like it and once the series is complete I doubt I ever will again.

Not only is the writing perfect but the story is too. In Shatter Me Juliette's world expands enormously, she's gone from being alone in her cell to being surrounded by a number of people. We get to watch her struggle with this and then a huge bombshell lands in her lap and when I say bombshell I mean it. I never in a million years could have seen it coming but I think it was needed, it pushed Juliette even more out of her comfort zone, made her face things she didn't want to and deal with the power she hasn't been able to live with in the right way. Not only that but it opened up the upbringings of the other characters to questions.

Unravel Me really is an enjoyable book and I can't wait to see how Tahereh closes Juliette's story and see not only who wins the war but how because something tells me it's going to be an epic battle.
