This, right here, is the book that pulled me from my reading slump. Dramatic, romantic, sprinkled with action, and a story that brings a satisfying conclusion to the SHATTER ME series.
I have really enjoyed this series since the first book. In fact, of the many young adult dystopian trilogies that I have read over the past few years, this series has been my favorite. I’m continually enthralled by TaherehMafi’s writing style. Every scene has a special magnetism to it that draws a reader in and keeps them engaged from cover to cover.
Ignite Me bring a conclusion to a story that has captured my emotions and my imagination. I have always been a fan of dramatic romance – but have never liked love triangles. The triangle between Juliette, Adam, and Warner was no different. What was exceptional about this particular love triangle is that I changed “teams” halfway through the series – something I generally never do. At first, I was fully, strongly, 110% Team Adam. The novellas, Destroy Me and especially Fracture Me really changed my mind, though. I came to rather despise the boy who I feel for in Shatter Me. Like Juliette, I couldn’t ignore Warner – and I didn’t want to.
Ignite Me‘s action was woven into the emotional and character-driven story line, all leading to a satisfying ending that didn’t feel contrived or manipulated – at least not to me. After feeling led down, disappointed in, or unfulfilled by other recent concluding books, I was thrilled with the way this series ramped up and then wound down. I’ll definitely miss Kenji and Warner – I loved both characters in different ways – just like Juliette.
Thank you, Tahereh Mafi, for a wonderful series – and for re-igniting my passion for reading.
