Synopsis:

tick

tick

tick

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.

Quick & Dirty: Unravel Me was such a deep and thoughtful novel filled with dark secrets and terrible emotions.

Opening Sentence: The world might be sunny-side up today.

Excerpt: Yes

The Review:

Unravel Me was such a great read. As much as I enjoyed the uniqueness of Shatter MeUnravel Me really sucked me into a great story. Juliet is finding it hard to live with the rebels. She doesn’t get to see Adam as much as she would like. She feels as though everyone hates her and that they are avoiding her because of her powers. Her touch can kill and when she’s angry she has super Hulk strength! (You don’t want to be on her bad side when she’s angry.) Castle, the leader of this little group of misfits, is trying to train Juliet to be able to use her powers whenever she wants.

Warner and his soldiers are searching uncomfortably close to the underground home of the rebels looking for Juliet and the two traitors who helped her escape. In the meantime, the rebels are working on a plan to fight the Reestablishment by using their powers. Juliet slowly begins to feel like she could fit in but something terrible always happens when the others begin to trust her. Dark secrets are revealed that could be shocking. These secrets could possibly change the course of the future for some characters.

This is not a world I would want to live in. It is so dark, cold and hopeless. Your whole family could be killed if just one person was thought to be a traitor. You can tell there is not a sense of hope in this world except for Castle. He believes that he is doing good in the world and that his people can stop the treachery of the Reestablishment.

I lived for the parts with Juliet and Warner. The hopelessness and despair that they both felt towards the world and their awkward intimate scenes just flew by. No matter what it seems that the world just keeps wanting these two together. (*fingers crossed* I hope.) The story did seem to drag down at times from how whiny some characters could get (Juliet and Adam mainly). I found Adam quite annoying in this novel compared to the first. No matter how many times characters tried to talk some sense into Juliet she seemed to not get it. I found myself trying to yell advice at her.

The ending was crazy, I loved it! Juliet has really grown and it feels like she will be making more adult decisions. Unravel Me is just the beginning act in a war that will hopefully end in the next book and it can’t come out fast enough!

Notable Scene:

He says, “I don’t want you to call me Warner anymore.”

I open my eyes.

“I want you to know me,” he says, breathless, his fingers pushing a stray strand of hair away from my face. “I don’t want to be Warner with you,” he says. “I want it to be different now. I want you to call me Aaron.”

And I’m about to say yes, of course, I completely understand, but there’s something about this stretch of silence that confuses me; something about this moment and the feel of his name on my tongue that unlocks other parts of my brain and there’s something there, something pushing and pulling at my skin and trying to remind me, trying to tell me and

it slaps me in the face

it punches me in the jaw

it dumps me right into the ocean.

“Adam.”
