Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi

Monday, December 24, 2012
Synopsis:
tick, tick, tick, tick, tick
it's almost
time for war.

Juliette has escaped to Omega Point. It is a place for people like her—people with gifts—and it is also the headquarters of the rebel resistance.

She's finally free from The Reestablishment, free from their plan to use her as a weapon, and free to love Adam. But Juliette will never be free from her lethal touch.

Or from Warner, who wants Juliette more than she ever thought possible.

In this exhilarating sequel to Shatter Me, Juliette has to make life-changing decisions between what she wants and what she thinks is right. Decisions that might involve choosing between her heart—and Adam's life


Review: It’s not very often that the second book in a series is better than the first, but this is the case with Unravel Me. The story picks up right after the end of Shatter Me. Juliette is doing her best to fit in at the Omega Point facility. She’s training with Kenji, learning more about her powers and trying her best to deal with all of the details, and the drama that comes with her ability. And for the first time we get to meet Warner’s father.

I have to say, I was impressed with the tension throughout the story between Juliette and Adam, and the mixed emotions for Warner, Mafi has readers wrapped around her fingers. Towards the end of the book I was starting to worry that Mafi was about to leave us on a major cliffhanger. Fortunately, it wasn’t too bad but I can honestly say that I loved Unravel Me a lot more than Shatter Me. Team Adam, watch out. Unravel Me not only has some steamy scenes with Adam but Warner too. Warner isn’t the same Warner we met in book one. Prepare yourself. I have to admit even in Shatter Me Warner was my favorite character. Even over Juliette. He’s complicated and a little insane.

The story was filled with some great new characters and interesting twists. We get to know Kenji a little better and his job at Omega Point. I really enjoyed Kenji. I felt like he was the only character with a good head on his shoulders. He always seems logical and level headed. It’s a unique and interesting contrast to Juliette. I think it’s great that Kenji’s character really helps create the whole picture to Juliette’s. He’s always there to check her and kind of give her a reality check. Especially when she’s wallowing in self-pity.

Although, I love Mafi’s unique writing style I felt in book 1 it overshadowed the storyline a bit. I was glad to see that this wasn't the case in Unravel Me. Mafi does a wonderful job conveying emotion and I think that, that’s where her writing style really stands out, in the best way. Over all, I’m anxiously looking forward to book 3. I’m excited to see what Mafi has up her sleeve next and I’m really curious to see whom Juliette ends up with, if anyone.
