Series: Shatter Me #1.5
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.
In every book, no matter how bad the bad guy is-I still find myself rooting for him. Especially if we find out that there are reasons for why he is so evil. It does not make his actions inexcusable, but we see there is a chance for redemption.
In the POV of SHATTER ME bad guy, Warner, this novella tells the tale of events directly after SHATTER ME, and the consequences Warner has to face from his father because of previous said events.
I loved this! I actually almost enjoyed this as much as I did the first novel in the series, but because it was too short and cut off at what seemed like a weird end, I gave it four stars. Warner could easily have his own whole novel he’s so messed up. He’s written so amazingly, and I loved getting inside his head. We find out that he may not be as bad as everyone thinks, and we also find out more about his childhood, family, and the person he really wishes to be.
Juliette’s voice also makes an appearance, through journal entries that Warner reads. I thought this added bonus was great, especially for people who might be missing her POV. All I can say is…
Overall, this is probably the only novella I will ever recommend, it is almost necessary to read this before you read UNRAVEL ME, which I can not wait to start! I kept the review vague because you really need to read this for yourself!
