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 Me, Fracture Me is told from Adam's perspective.
\r\nAs 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.\r\n\r\nOn 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.\r\n\r\nFracture 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.
Even though I had heard that Fracture Me was from Adam’s point of view, I still decided to read Fracture Me because there is this trend where novella’s contain pertinent information for series books and need to be read to understand the next book in the story. The Shatter Me trilogy is no exception, so if you are thinking of skipping it because you’re #TeamWarner, don’t skip it! You still need to read it to find out what happens between Unravel Me and Ignite Me. But really the reason this I am not giving this a 4 or 5 is because I just don’t like Adam.
DON’T SKIP THIS BOOK, ADAM-HATERS.
That said, of the two novellas, and truthfully the entire series, this is the weakest and it’s all Adam’s fault. I really just don’t like him. He’s whiny, he doesn’t come off as very strong and he’s just blah. All talk, no action. Juliette needs someone strong. Someone who can touch her.
But I did notice some interesting things in Fracture Me and they make me sure – positive really – of who Juliette will ultimately end up with at the end of Ignite Me. You can only have one “this is the most important person in my life” person. Adam has one and Warner has one. And they are not the same. I’ll let you see if you can figure it out.
In Fracture Me, you’ll get lots of action, some despair, as the members of Omega Point deal with tragedy and set out on a rescue mission.
Oh and you also need to read it because the ending, omg. SERIOUSLY. I don’t know what you’re waiting for.
