Destroy Me (Shatter Me #1.5)

Title: Destroy Me (Shatter Me #1.5)
Author: Tahereh Mafi
Publisher: Harper Collins

Overview
Perfect for the fans of Shatter Me who are desperately awaiting the release of Unravel Me, this novella-length digital original will bridge the gap between these two novels from the perspective of the villain we all love to hate, Warner, the ruthless leader of Sector 45.

In Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me, Juliette escaped from The Reestablishment by seducing Warner—and then putting a bullet in his shoulder. But as she’ll learn in Destroy Me, Warner is not that easy to get rid of. . .

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.


Review
*A novella in Warner's point of view

In this novella, we get to see the events that occur to Warner after he is shot in the shoulder by Juliette. Warner surprisingly admits how deceived he was and his feelings towards her. We also get a glimpse into his everyday life, which is tiring by the way, and how his dad treats him. But his dad has a change of plans, as he has other things in store for Juliette. With the feelings towards her, Warner can't seem to agree with his father. Will he betray his own sector? What will happen to the so called traitors (Adam and Kenji) who have helped Juliette escape? Now, we see how Warner handles this situation, with the help of his sort-of-friend(I guess), and how they discover where Juliette is and plan their next move.

This novells helps fill in the gaps of 'Shatter Me' while Juliette is underground and gives the reader a chance to see deeper into Warner's life and get a feel of who he really is.

  1. This sounds really good. I've actually read that a lot of people like Warner. I can't say that I agree with since I haven't read Shatter Me.
