Destroy Me

Title : Destroy Me
Author : Tahereh Mafi
Rating : 5 Stars

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.

A wide sneak peak on the perspective of Warner is just the thing that I instantaneously need to understand him deeper. On the first book, all I think about is how selfish and persistent he is. Man, I was delusional with his emotions. One might think that he is purely have no concern to anyone but there is something more behind those composed looks. He is capable to rule and give commands to his soldiers and lead them with all tactics that he sees without any objections from them, but a girl with a gift suddenly crumbled him down. Juliette. He can't control himself from falling apart when it comes to her.

Well of course every man has its own weaknesses and to Warner, he suddenly felt so vulnerable just thinking that he is so far with Juliette and most importantly he was deceived and yet he still falls for her. It is sad and tragic knowing that he can't keep on controlling his feelings that affects on managing orders to his soldiers. As he keeps on reading Juliette's journal, he realizes all her pains is the same as his.

Now that I think about it, I wonder what was the world is before The Reestablishment made. I wonder how it triggers for the society to change, to drastically change. This may seem short but it's enough to answer all my questions regarding the leader of Sector 45, Warner. Overall, it just brought into a mind of a ruthless leader who seems to be tamed to a girl he can't win over. I'm looking forward on what Warner will do further to bring Juliette back on him.
