The thrilling second installment in New York Times bestselling author Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me series.
It should have taken Juliette a single touch to kill Warner. But his mysterious immunity to her deadly power has left her shaken, wondering why her ultimate defense mechanism failed against the person she most needs protection from.
She and Adam were able to escape Warner’s clutches and join up with a group of rebels, many of whom have powers of their own. Juliette will finally be able to actively fight against The Reestablishment and try to fix her broken world. And perhaps these new allies can help her shed light on the secret behind Adam’s—and Warner’s—immunity to her killer skin.
Juliette’s world is packed with high-stakes action and tantalizing romance, perfect for fans of the Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard and the Darkest Minds trilogy by Alexandra Bracken.
I read the first book of the series in high school and kind of liked it, but didn't get pulled in. Not so this time around. Read my review of the first book, Shatter Me.
Unravel Me dives right in where Shatter Me left off. Immediately, new tension sets the story going. Something is wrong with Adam. Juliette is struggling to work with her new "allies." And Juliette's internal conflict and trauma just won't give her a break.
This is where a lot of the complaints from book one start to come in. Adam and Juliette's relationship strains as new information comes to light. Her constant internal dialogue and self-loathing put up barriers between her and the people who want to help. In fact, her mounting anxiety and the bottled-up feelings of a lifetime put a lot of lives at risk. And that leads to several changes in both her character and the story.
