Fracture Me (Shatter Me #2.5) by Tahereh Mafi

17331518From GoodReads: In this electrifying sixty-page companion novella to the New York Timesbestselling Shatter Me series, discover the fate of the Omega Point rebels as they go up against The Reestablishment. Set during and soon after the final moments of Unravel MeFracture Me is told from Adam’s perspective.

As Omega Point prepares to launch an all-out assault on The Reestablishment soldiers stationed in Sector 45, Adam’s focus couldn’t be further from the upcoming battle. He’s reeling from his breakup with Juliette, scared for his best friend’s life, and as concerned as ever for his brother James’s safety. And just as Adam begins to wonder if this life is really for him, the alarms sound. It’s time for war.

On the battlefield, it seems like the odds are in their favor—but taking down Warner, Adam’s newly discovered half brother, won’t be that easy. The Reestablishment can’t tolerate a rebellion, and they’ll do anything to crush the resistance . . . including killing everyone Adam has ever cared about.


Adam’s story need to be told because I needed answers, I wanted to know more about him and this book solidified my love for Warner.  Fracture Me is absolutely insightful as it gave me an understanding of his feelings towards Juliette.  And while I know he loves Juliette and cares very deeply for James, his baby brother, as he should…I couldn’t help but feel he was on the fence about her.

I’m going to keep this review super short and sweet because after all, it is only a novella. This is a quick read but it’s important to the series and one that shouldn’t be skipped.  It’s not nearly as good as Destroy Me (#1.5) and it has nothing to do which team I’m on but the fact of the matter remains, it’s important to the series.

The strength I saw in Adam in Shatter Me (#1) is almost non-existent in this novella and I do believe there’s a reason for that but it’s too soon tell and I certainly don’t want to give anything away considering I have a few theories.  What you’ll find in Fracture Me is solid writing, sets us up for Ignite Me (#3) and a touch of foreshadowing,  I love that because it creates anticipation (the suspense might kill me!). My imagination is working overtime. :)

“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.”
