Review: Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi


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.

Favorite Lines:

“Words, I think, are such unpredictable creatures. No gun, no sword, no army or king will ever be more powerful than a sentence. Swords may cut and kill, but words will stab and stay, burying themselves in our bones to become corpses we carry into the future, all the time digging and failing to rip their skeletons from our flesh.”

Can you hear my heart? I want to ask him.
I want you to make a list of all your favorite things, and I want to be on it.”

“It’s the kind of kiss that inspires stars to climb into the sky and light up the world. The kind that takes forever and no time at all.”

“Hell is empty and all the devils are here.”

“My eyes are filling fast with tears and I blink and blink but the world is a mess and I want to laugh because all I can think is how horrible and beautiful it is, that our eyes blur the truth when we can’t bear to see it.”

My Opinion:

Ignite Me was supposed to be the last book in the Shatter Me series and I am so happy that Mafi decided to keep going because this series is one of my favorites and I selfishly want more.

The story follows Juliette as she continues to fight on for what she thinks is right; ending The Reestablishment. She is able to get everyone to team up and fight against a common enemy. This is the book where we see Juliette become who she is meant to be and realize her strengths and not just her weaknesses.

I love my ship in this one. I won’t spoil anything just know that I love it. Mafi does an amazing job like always writing this story. I am always in awe at how she is able to write each character so realistically. She doesn’t just write them as these incredible superheroes, she makes them so realistic and so human. It’s very easy to see a bit of ourselves in all of them.

There really isn’t anything to not like about this book in my opinion. Adam is less annoying which I’m thankful for. Even though the big fight scene isn’t too long and detailed, I don’t particularly mind. I think the way it way it was written doesn’t make it seem like it was cut short in any way.


Overall, I love this book and this whole series. I’m really excited to keep reading and see what the rest of the series has in store for us! Happy reading!
