Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi Review

"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."


My expression for the book lies in that line above. Ignite Me wasn't as good as I thought, but it was perfect. (Heh, I know that doesn't make sense, but yeah. It's perfect because of Adam Kent and Aaron Warner. It's not as good as I thought because of Anderson's death). There's no actual fire in Ignite Me, but there's a flame of resistance.

Please ignore the next paragraph. It will reveal who Juliette chose (there's only two choices and Kenji doesn't count). And it's my ranting to my friend who thought it was the other guy. It's not nice to be doing this directly to my friend (fellow reader and awesome Shatter Me fan).

Put this in a high-pitched girl's voice: I won the bet. I won the bet. Ha, ha. It was Warner. You owe me five dollars! It was Aaron Warner all along, from Unravel Me to the end. :) :) :) [Of course, I wouldn't say that directly to my friend (my ranting).]

No spoiler now. Ignite Me is an awesome and legendary book. It's not as good as Unravel Me (because Unravel Me has hints and little teasers), but it's better than Shatter Me. Ignite me is going to make you dance till you die. Actually, that doesn't sound so appealing until you read about how sweet Aaron Warner is. And how hot. Then you'll be dancing and grooving until the day you die because it is just that awesome. 

Aaron Warner, the man himself. He's legendary. I just love how Juliette describes him. The way she loves him and describes him makes me hungry enough to eat him. I mean, he is just yummy. Yummy. There's no better word for it. Yummy. Anyway, Warner's past is revealed and his awesomeness is taken to a whole new level. I just can't help but gush over him. He's is too adorable. 

And Adam, Warner's brother, is a butt. I kid you not. He's a donkey's butt. He's no longer Mr. Nice Boy. No, he's the meanest dude on earth. I wanted to take a gun and fire it at him twelve times in a row. He treats Juliette horribly. I probably won't treat a fellow girl like that unless she's my boyfriend's ex-girlfriend. Hut-hu. It's faceoff time!

What I love the most is Juliette. Her character development is obvious. She's like a teddy bear to me, even though I won't touch her. I might die... Juliette's growth as a woman is impressive. She manages to stand up and refuse to be knocked over. You go, girl! Don't take any crap from any man! She's amazing!

My most favorite moment is the ending. When Warner said...Ahhh! Nothing about love or his romance with Juliette. It's about his comment on the world. I love how confident he is. I mean that piece of boy is hot enough...Okay, too much gushing and fangirl moment over Warner. 

Conclusion: Unravel Me is the best of the trilogy. The trilogy won't make you cry, but it will make you dance. I want to hug this a teddy bear. TAHEREH MAFI, WRITE MORE BOOKS!!! *crying* You're going to make me cry even more.

Rating: Four out of Five
