Goodreads Summary: 

Juliette now knows she may be the only one who can stop the Reestablishment. But to take them down, she’ll need the help of the one person she never thought she could trust: Warner. And as they work together, Juliette will discover that everything she thought she knew – about Warner, her abilities, and even Adam – was wrong.

What I Thought:

I can’t believe it’s all over!  But it’s such a good ending for all of the characters, and I can’t imagine it ending any other way. I really can’t.  

Ignite Me starts where Unravel Me left off, and only a chapter in, we got a moment that had me going “oh my god, what just happened, did Warner really say that, oh my god, how could that possibly happen?”  And I knew at that moment that I needed to not read this book during lunch, because I manage to not yell at my Nook, even though I really wanted to.  And of course, everything turned out okay in regards to that particular revelation.  

I just love Juliette and how much she’s changed and grown as a person since we saw her in Shatter Me.  She’s come to accept her abilities and what she has to do in order change things.  I just love her friendship with Kenji, who is still such a great character.  I’m still not sure how I feel about Adam or Warner, but I will say that Warner has grown on me, and Adam was slightly irritating.  After reading Ignite Me, though, I’m pretty sold on Warner and Juliette.  They really are good for each and bring out the best in each other.  Still, I’m wondering if my neutrality towards Warner and Adam is because I haven’t read the novellas yet.  

The ending!  It fit, but I think part of me was expecting something different.  I like that the book ends with a feeling of hope and that things are going to be different, but at the same time, part of me wanted a glimpse of what things were like after the big battle happened.  

I do miss the strike throughs we saw in the other books, but there is still the repetition of certain words and the interesting placement of some of the text that we saw in Shatter Me and Unravel Me.  I still love that we see Juliette’s thoughts so well, and I still felt like we were experiencing what she was experiencing.  

Let’s Rate It:

Ignite Me is such a good ending to a series that I’ve come to love!  I’m sad to see it come to an end, but I love how much Juliette changed over the course of the series.  Ignite Me gets 5 stars.
