Summary: (from goodreads) 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.

Seriously, Tahereh is one of my all time favorite authors. I love her writing style. She writes in a way that is like poetry and I just can’t get enough of her. Now, if you haven’t read Shatter Me yet, this review will spoil the ending for you. But I am warning you, once you start reading the series, you won’t be able to stop.
OMG what an emotional roller coaster! I’m going to be honest I was not a big fan of Warner in Shatter Me - actually, I despised him. But after reading Destroy Me and Unravel Me, I have had a change of heart. Yes, I know he is evil and horrible in Shatter Me, but I feel for sorry him and I understand now why he is the way he is. Plus, there is definitely some kind of chemistry between Juliette and Warner. I know I am going to get some enemies for this but, I am Team Warner.

Unravel Me picks up right where Shatter Me left off. Juliette is in Omega Point after being taken there by Kenji. Juliette finds out that Castle is testing Adam to see why he can touch Juliette, but the testing really upsets Juliette. The worst part is what the results reveal, but I am not going to disclose that. There are several revelations throughout the book that will shock you, as they did me. If you follow me on Goodreads and Twitter you will know that I was saying OMG a lot. LOL My only complaint about this was Juliette’s self pity. I understand that she has been through hell and back, but seriously, get over it and move on. There were times that I wanted to scream at her “tell him” and “stop thinking it and JUST SAY IT!” Grrrrrr!! But I understand why Tahereh did that and it will all come together at the very end. Tahereh seriously turned this story around, but for the better of course. Then all hell breaks loose and the war begins. The Reestablishment is in full force as the citizens of Section 45 are rebelling again them. Juliette has no choice but to go out and fight for what is right and use her power to bring the Reestablishment down. But that is easier said than done.

The ending was amazing and now I am anxiously awaiting book number #3. If you haven’t read Shatter Me yet, I strongly suggest you do. This is an amazing series. You will fall in love with the story and all the character and even more with the author.
