Series: Shatter Me # 3
Format: Hardback
Source: Purchased
Publication Date: February 4, 2014

The heart-stopping conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series, which Ransom Riggs, bestselling author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, called "a thrilling, high-stakes saga of self-discovery and forbidden love"

Juliette now knows she may be the only one who can stop the Reestablishment. But to take them down, she'll need the help of the one person she never thought she could trust: Warner. And as they work together, Juliette will discover that everything she thought she knew-about Warner, her abilities, and even Adam-was wrong.

In Shatter Me, Tahereh Mafi created a captivating and original story that combined the best of dystopian and paranormal and was praised by Publishers Weekly as "a gripping read from an author who's not afraid to take risks." The sequel, Unravel Me, blew readers away with heart-racing twists and turns, and New York Times bestselling author Kami Garcia said it was "dangerous, sexy, romantic, and intense." Now this final book brings the series to a shocking and climactic end.

After the ending of Unravel Me I couldn't wait for February to come so I could get my hands on Ignite Me, I was dying to find out what would happen with not only Juliette, Warner, Adam, but also with Omega Point and The Reestablishment and thankfully Ignite Me gave me everything that I was hoping for.

Ignite Me begins right where Unravel Me left off.  Anderson has shot Juliette in the chest and she is fighting for her life.  Warner is doing everything he knows how to keep her safe and out of the spotlight until she heals, but Juliette refuses to stay hidden for long.

Juliette has grown so much from the scared and timid girl that we first met in Shatter Me, she has learned so much about herself, who she is and what she is capable of and I've really enjoyed her journey.  Warner is also a different person than the one we first met, well, he shows more of who he really is.  We learn so much more about him in this book and things we thought we knew about him from the first book were completely taken out of context.  I stated my Team Warner status in my review of Unravel Me, and I'm happy to say that my standing hasn't changed.  If anything, I feel more strongly about him than I did after reading Unravel Me.

Overall, Ignite Me was a great ending to a fantastic series.  While I do wish we would have seen more action especially since there was an all out war going on, I was still happy with the overall ending to this story.
