Thanks to Allen & Unwin Australia for sending me a copy for review
Dramatic, addictive. There is nothing that this second book lacks, it's got it all
After the events of Shatter Me, we are left craving for more. Even though, this book (and Shatter Me) were not left on any major sort of cliffhanger, we still have this invisible pull to read the next book.
This book was a little slow at the start, but that didn't really stop me from tearing this book apart (speed wise lol). We still get the whole X-Men vibe from this book, as we were starting to see in the end of Shatter Me, but it this hasn't made the book worse or anything, it's made it better and I felt like this was some awesome kind of retelling!
I love how much we can see Juliette grow, especially just coming out of Shatter Me. We see a whole lot less of the strike throughs are more of her adapting to life outside of prison, and rebuilding her self esteem and her sanity. I love Adam and Juliette in this book, YAY TEAM ADAM!
Oh Kenji. How you have brightened this series up! And to think it couldn't get any better. If he wasn't in this book, I'm pretty sure the book would be kind of dull. In the bits where nothing really is happening, Kenji completely takes over and continually pulls us through when usually, we would feel like the book is going slow and it's just fluff.
Even though I am on Team Adam, I'm happy that Juliette kind-of-yeah-maybe broke up with Adam. I'm happy because she needs to find herself without someone else (even someone as awesome as Adam) there to help her along. After nearly a year kept in isolation, even though she doesn't really need any me-time, she definitely needs to sort out her issues, and start being independent and fully fitting back into her shoes (metaphorically speaking).
When you hit the end of the book, you honestly don't know what to do. It's not left in a cliffhanger, but like I said before, it leaves you craving for the last book! The end is full of surprises that leave you shocked and you don't know what to do with yourself after one particular scene! This scene will tear you apart yet full of action!
