Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi
Summary: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.
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.
As expected, Mafi weaves together another wonderful story following Juliette, Adam, Warner, and co. Her writing is as beautiful and eloquent as ever before; with more wonderful action sequences, more heart-pounding suspense. Whether or not you are Team Adam or Team Warner, each gets their own happy ending in a way.
However, as good as the conclusion of this series was, I had some minor problems with it – mostly regarding the love triangle. View Spoiler »As a Team Warner fan, I was obviously satisfied with the ending of this series. However, I can’t help but think what Team Adam fans must think.
To be honest, the whole series, I have never felt that Tahereh really gives Adam a fighting chance for Juliette. And even though I’m Team Warner, that really bugged me. Is it really necessary? If we’re going to create a love triangle, at the very least, can’t we have each side have an equal chance of succeeding? « Hide Spoiler
Nonetheless, besides that little tidbit, Ignite Me was more than I could hope for as a series ender. More Warner, great development with Juliette’s character, and more banter with Kenji.
