Synopsis from Goodreads:
Which is the truth and which is the lie?
Now that Ella knows who Juliette is and what she was created for, things have only become more complicated. As she struggles to understand the past that haunts her and looks to a future more uncertain than ever, the lines between right and wrong—between Ella and Juliette—blur. And with old enemies looming, her destiny may not be her own to control.
The day of reckoning for the Reestablishment is coming. But she may not get to choose what side she fights on.
My Mini Review:
It’s hard to describe. It’s a pleasure so close to pain I sometimes can’t tell the two apart.”Warner
I had so many feelings when I was done reading this one, and isn’t that the number one sign you have read a great book? Books are supposed to evoke all these feelings and emotions in us. But mostly…I was disappointed.
This was definitely not the satisfying ending to a series that I was hoping for. This book honestly could’ve been a novella. Nothing really happens the first 80% of the book. The only thing that kept me reading was Warner and Kenji’s relationship. I enjoyed that most of the narration was done by Kenji, who is my favorite character.
Mafi’s writing was wonderful and poetic as ever. The last 20% of the book was as gripping and action packed as I was hoping, and the ending was very satisfying. There were a few loose ends, but for the most part I had closure.
In my very humble opinion, this series should’ve ended with Ignite Me (Shatter Me, #3), and I don’t recommend anyone read past that one. I’m very happy Mafi’s has announced that her next book will be a Contemporary novel called “An Emotion of Great Delight” which is to be released in 2021. I do look forward to reading more of her future books.
