Description…

In this electrifying sixty-page companion novella to the New York Timesbestselling Shatter Me series, discover the fate of the Omega Point rebels as they go up against The Reestablishment. Set during and soon after the final moments of Unravel MeFracture Me is told from Adam’s perspective.

As Omega Point prepares to launch an all-out assault on The Reestablishment soldiers stationed in Sector 45, Adam’s focus couldn’t be further from the upcoming battle. He’s reeling from his breakup with Juliette, scared for his best friend’s life, and as concerned as ever for his brother James’s safety. And just as Adam begins to wonder if this life is really for him, the alarms sound. It’s time for war.

On the battlefield, it seems like the odds are in their favor—but taking down Warner, Adam’s newly discovered half brother, won’t be that easy. The Reestablishment can’t tolerate a rebellion, and they’ll do anything to crush the resistance . . . including killing everyone Adam has ever cared about.

Fracture Me sets the stage for Ignite Me, the explosive finale in Tahereh Mafi’s epic dystopian series. It’s a novella not to be missed by fans who crave action-packed stories with tantalizing romance like Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Legend by Marie Lu.

FRACTURE ME is an exciting, action-filled and immensely entertaining novella in the Shatter Me series set following the events that took place in UNRAVEL ME, told from Adam’s point of view.

It is the perfect seque into the third and final book in the series, giving readers a peek at some of the events that transpired that would not be known by the series’ main character, Juliette. It sets the stage for what looks to be an epic finish to this series. And it allows readers to get a better idea of who Adam is, what his priorities are and what he is and is not aware of.

While brief, this novella is every bit as captivating as the author’s full-length novels. It immediately grabs hold and brings readers back into this oppressive, ravaged and war-torn world the author created. A world filled with people living in fear and those ready to fight back. A world where a touch can heal or it can kill.

A world whose fate may rest in the hands of one girl.

With a lightning fast pace and suspense-filled, nerve-wracking moments, FRACTURE ME is a thrilling, must read installment in this series. It shows a different side to Adam, it reveals his fears and doubts and motivations. It hints at what is to come in IGNITE ME.

And it will keep readers on the edge of their seats, holding their breath, crossing their fingers and wishing and hoping their hearts won’t be broken at the novella’s end.

On a personal note…

I had been on a bit of a reading hiatus. But there was no way I could resist picking up and devouring FRACTURE ME when it released. The Shatter Me series is one of my most favorite and memorable series. Ever. The author’s writing is breathtaking and beautiful and unique.

Her stories and characters have taken me on an emotional rollercoaster in each and every book and story in this series. I love them, hate them, fear for them, hope for them, ache for them.

I desperately wanted to wait until just before the release of IGNITE ME before picking up this novella. But I just had to see if reading this story from Adam’s POV would make me adore him again, after being firmly on Warner’s side throughout my reads of UNRAVEL ME and DESTROY ME.

And while I am still a Warner fan, I couldn’t help but fall for Adam just a little bit, again. He proved that he is not a pushover and is not blinded by his feelings for Juliette. But he also revealed… oh, oops… just because he revealed something doesn’t mean I should.

But I loved that there was more to this story than just Adam and Juliette – though I love, love, loved that it revealed that one tiny thing about Juliette that Adam noticed but that Juliette wasn’t aware of. I was shocked and surprised and heartbroken by what took place in this novella. I could not believe what transpired and I am dying to find out how things will look from Juliette’s perspective.

The moment I finished reading I was desperate to get my hands on the final book. Even with my aversion to finishing books in a series, I can’t help but want to see how this series ends. The moment, second, instant it releases.

I’d been somewhat anxious that I wouldn’t love this novella as much as the rest of the series because it was told from Adam’s POV and it was set after everything that went down in UNRAVEL ME. But my fears were allayed immediately and I fell in love with this read as easily I have every other by this author.

FRACTURE ME is a definite, absolute, must, must read.

    It was interesting to see her sort of switch gears writing this one. Warner’s head is scary close to Juliette’s, while Adam seems more…uh pragmatic. I agree this novella just made me even more excited for Ignite Me. Great review.

      That’s the perfect word choice. Yes, Adam is pragmatic. I’d always felt he had a touch of that, but this novella made that abundantly clear. And I always felt Warner and Juliette were very similar, which is why they connected together so well. But it was nice to see who held Adam’s heart more than anyone else.

      I am so excited for IM after what happened. I did not expect that much to be revealed in this short story. It was a total tease. At least the wait is only just over a month. And thanks!

  2. I can’t believe I haven’t even started with the series yet. Why? Because I’m crazy or something similar. I know about the series, I know about the author, I’m a FAN without knowing how the story really goes. I want to, and I plan on doing it soon. Thanks for the great non-spoilery review! :)
