Fracture Me (Shatter Me #2.5) by Tahereh Mafi

After Destroy Me, which was Warner’s novella, we get what I don’t know if declared as such, but Adam’s novella.

I’m team Adam, not sure if you know, or care, or whatever, but I am. And Warner, while has my sympathies for some of his “issues” with his father or whatnot, I generally dislike him and didn’t quite “fall” into the trap that is Destroy Me. I do, however, appreciate Mafi’s success in making him a fantastic villain.

In this electrifying sixty-page companion novella to the New York Timesbestselling Shatter Me series, discover the fate of the Omega Point rebels as they go up against The Reestablishment. Set during and soon after the final moments of Unravel MeFracture Me is told from Adam’s perspective.

As Omega Point prepares to launch an all-out assault on The Reestablishment soldiers stationed in Sector 45, Adam’s focus couldn’t be further from the upcoming battle. He’s reeling from his breakup with Juliette, scared for his best friend’s life, and as concerned as ever for his brother James’s safety. And just as Adam begins to wonder if this life is really for him, the alarms sound. It’s time for war.

On the battlefield, it seems like the odds are in their favor—but taking down Warner, Adam’s newly discovered half brother, won’t be that easy. The Reestablishment can’t tolerate a rebellion, and they’ll do anything to crush the resistance . . . including killing everyone Adam has ever cared about.

Fracture Me sets the stage for Ignite Me, the explosive finale in Tahereh Mafi’s epic dystopian series. It’s a novella not to be missed by fans who crave action-packed stories with tantalizing romance like Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Legend by Marie Lu.

Oh Adam. That boy has my heart. In this novella Adam is so conflicted and torn and tormented and sweet.

Fracture Me spans about a day, give or take a couple of hours, where Adam and Juliette are worried and fretting over Kenji *swoon* (love him) who’s supposedly been zapped by Juliette (if you remember in Unravel Me and if you don’t get on with rereading it. There is also the discovery that Warner left Omega Point and back to working with his father (or so implied/assumed/suspected). On the day where searches are planned after some of the other Omega members, Adam, Juliette and Kenji, who’s made quite a recovery, though not 100% yet, leave Omega Point. They encounter some problem and Juliette is taken.

Adam is going through a lot in this very short companion to the series. He is, as mentioned before hurt, pining and worried over Juliette, conflicted with thoughts about his brother and father, very concerned and worried over James and his safety, and naturally, Kenji.

The novella ends with what I can’t consider a cliffhanger, but is one for all intents and purposes. It’s just that we knew that’s the situation when Unravel Me ended. Now I mostly need Ignite Me so I can know Adam and Juliette together *pre-glares at Tahereh for the off chance that’s not going to be the case*

I love this series and loved this novella, as much as it broke my heart, and am giving it 5. All 5 go to Adam. He needs all the encouragement and help and love he can get.
