Destroy Me (Shatter Me #1.5) by Tahereh Mafi
Perfect for the fans of Shatter Me who are desperately awaiting the release of Unravel Me, this novella-length digital original will bridge the gap between these two novels from the perspective of the villain we all love to hate, Warner, the ruthless leader of Sector 45.
In Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me, Juliette escaped from The Reestablishment by seducing Warner—and then putting a bullet in his shoulder. But as she’ll learn in Destroy Me, Warner is not that easy to get rid of. . .
Back at the base and recovering from his near-fatal wound, Warner must do everything in his power to keep his soldiers in check and suppress any mention of a rebellion in the sector. Still as obsessed with Juliette as ever, his first priority is to find her, bring her back, and dispose of Adam and Kenji, the two traitors who helped her escape. But when Warner’s father, The Supreme Commander of The Reestablishment, arrives to correct his son’s mistakes, it’s clear that he has much different plans for Juliette. Plans Warner simply cannot allow.
Set after Shatter Me and before its forthcoming sequel, Unravel Me, Destroy Me is a novella told from the perspective of Warner, the ruthless leader of Sector 45.
Tahereh Mafi has such beautiful and unique style of writing. “Shatter me” was amazing, I loved the way she wrote it and how she perceived Juliette. Of course, with Warner it was different. He is a different person yet in a way so similar to Juliette. Warner,ah Warner. I love him even more now when I have an insight of his mind. I think that we see now that he and Juliette would have been perfect for each other if the circumstances were different for Warner. We see why he is the way he is, how he thinks and what he feels. I´m pained for him. I hope he changes some of his plans but I know I am folish to hope. I absolutely love his character, his mind is an interesting place but the most interesting parts of the novella to me were his thoughts of Juliette and his feelings toward her and the clarification why and how he did some things to her.
I am really anxious to read Unravel me now when I learned a few things in “Destroy me” and I look forward to Mafi´s words and sentences and paragraphs. I think she is the most interesting young author and her words are the words of future.
