Cover Source: GoodReads
Title: Destroy Me
Author: Tahereh Mafi
Series: Shatter Me 1.5

I borrowed this book from my local public library.

GoodReads Synopsis:
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.
After reading Shatter Me, I knew immediately that I had to check out the next book in the series. I was extremely happy when I found out that Destroy Me, the novella between Shatter Me and Unravel me, was in Warner's point of view. I knew, while reading the first book, that Warner was a big character but I was unsure of how he was going to interact with Juliette and how he was going to fit into the story, other than just being her captor.

Destroy Me definitely put a few things in perspective and just hit home how much Warner covets Juliette and he's even slightly mad at the thought of her. Obsessed is an easy word to use in description of his characters but I'm very curious of how his character is going to evolve and grow as the series continues.

I definitely plan to dive into Unravel Me soon because I have to know what will happen next!!

Rating: 4 Stars

  1. This really opened my eyes to both Warner and Adam and set up the rest of the series very nicely.
