“And we are quotation marks, inverted and upside down, clinging to one another at the end of this life sentence. Trapped by lives we did not choose.”


With Omega Point destroyed, Juliette doesn’t know if the rebels, her friends, or even Adam are alive. But that won’t keep her from trying to take down The Reestablishment once and for all. Now she must rely on Warner, the handsome commander of Sector 45. The one person she never thought she could trust. The same person who saved her life. He promises to help Juliette master her powers and save their dying world . . . but that’s not all he wants with her.




I am very much aware that I am biased with my rating of this book but to my defense, I really enjoyed this book and I am taking that as a basis.

Reading this for the first time before, I haven’t been paying any attention to the actual plot. I am more focused on Warner and Juliette’s love story. However, in my reread I feel like I have been reading some parts of this book for the first time and this makes the experience so much enjoyable.

For one, Juliette’s character development is the only thing that I remember about this book when I first read it. And after rereading it, I could say that Juliette has really come a long way. And it is only in my reread that I realized how big of an impact her development is in her relationship with Adam. And I appreciate how the author points out the flaw in their earlier relationship in the series.

Plotwise, there is no dull moment. But like the first two books in the series, we did not get to know more of the enemy and the government that they are trying to take down. They only have a plan on how to take them down and who they are taking down. But how complicated the whole politics is, we have no idea. And the book ends in an open-ending which kinda frustrates me before because there is a lot of potential for more.

And so, I am one of those people who was really looking forward to the next installment of this series when it was announced because I feel like the story could be expounded more. I just hope that the next books in this series will not disappoint.

All in all, I love this book. The only thing that I did not like about this book is Adam. And you probably guess that right if you have been reading my review of the other books. But we will not talk about him because this review will probably be twice as long.

So I highly recommend this series, the original trilogy that is. I have yet to read the next 3 books. If you need a classic dystopian feel to it, this is the book for you.


That is it for this review. I also have a review for the other books in the series:

Shatter Me #1

Unravel Me #2

Novellas #1.5 & #2.5

Do check it out!


And until next time.



A reader who becomes a villain, a queen, a princess, a heroine, and a warrior depends on the story that she reads. A dreamer who wishes to dwell in the world that she visited through the pages of her book. A frustrated blogger who wishes to put into words the frustration, boredom, and excitement that she felt throughout her many journeys outside the real world.
