The heart-stopping conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series, which Ransom Riggs, bestselling author of Miss Peregrine''s Home for Peculiar Children, called "a thrilling, high-stakes saga of self-discovery and forbidden love."

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.

Tahereh Mafi has created a captivating and original story that combines the best of dystopian and paranormal, and was praised by Publishers Weekly as "a gripping read from an author who''s not afraid to take risks." Now this final book brings the series to a shocking and satisfying end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TEAM WARNER ! *Be warned, this is not a summary of the book. If you want that then you can read the summary online.* I picked up the first book in the series thinking "meh, why not, the cover looks interesting" and then at the end "OMQ FANTABULOUS". This was the perfect end to the series and Juliette is a wonderfully developed character. Actually, most of the characters in the book are well-rounded. While reading this book, you'll think about the following: - With great power comes great responsibility - Sacrifices in relation to conflicts - What it really means to protect the people you love - How misunderstood some people really are I always had a feeling that Warner was more than what everyone else around him believed him to be. And this third book does a great job revealing to the protagonist and the readers of what angst-ridden soul Warner is. If I could described Warner, I would borrow a quote from Paper Towns by John Green, "It is easy to forget how full the world is of people, full to bursting, and each of them imaginable and consistently misimagined." I cannot gush enough about the wonderful-ness of all the characters, especially Warner. The ending could have been elaborated upon more but I think that this story is more about finding who you are, finding who others really are and how conflicts between parties cause suffering and misery to everyone. I feel that this series is less on the end of the conflict, seeing as how there less than 10 pages on how the war ended, and more on the romance developing between characters. And I will end, as I have begun, with ... TEAM WARNER !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4.5 stars, Great Ending Ignite Me is the third and final novel in the Dystopian/Paranormal Shatter Me series, and I have to say it was my favorite of the series. I loved the progression that this book had, Juliette really grew up and took responsibility for her actions and learned to be powerful and comfortable in her own skin. I think the only thing that upset me in this book was Adam, he was very unlikeable in this book but it makes you realize that Warner and Juliette are a better match for each other considering we have been dancing around this love triangle since book one. The story was great and I was hooked from the first right to the last page, I was never bored while reading and I loved the little twists and turns this book had. The ending was great, I thought it wrapped up nice, we still have everything closed but with that open ending where you get the chance to imagine what happened to the characters. Overall I thought this book was great and the series as whole is amazing, I would highly recommend this series and anyone who likes Dystopian or even Paranormal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from JULIETTE... COME ON   I really enjoyed this one, but it wasn't as good as the first two. Taherah Mafi has definitely created a spectacular ending and it was a shocking one too.  I have to admit that the book wasn't too thrilling. There were many whiny parts and dull parts that made me resist wanting to read this. I wish that Juliette would have realized that she doesn't get everything she wants. Throughout the book, she has become a very annoying protagonist.  The love triangle was... okay throughout the whole trilogy. Warner has definitely become my favourite out of the two, but I wish I could see his side of the story. I loved the way he loved Juliette and how he saw her as a special someone.  I definitely need more Taherah Mafi ASAP. This series is a 4/5 rating altogether, and it's one of my favourites of all time. Stunning!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Without Issues, But the Book I've Been Waiting For! Ignite Me was everything I have ever wanted to say to Juliette. It was everything I had hoped for Juliette to become. And it was everything I wish this entire series had been. While parts were quite info-dumpy and there was very little in actual character development, I still found I really enjoyed Ignite Me for finally giving me the heroine I had been seeking since Shatter Me. Ignite Me wastes absolutely no time informing Juliette of how cowardly and ridiculous she has been. As Warner shares his secrets, secrets that I think some readers will have a hard time coming to terms with, Juliette begins to see not only Warner, but more importantly, herself in a new light. "For so many years I thought my life was difficult; I thought I understood what it meant to suffer. But this. This is something I can’t even begin to comprehend. I never stopped to consider that someone else might have it worse than I do. It makes me feel ashamed for ever having felt sorry for myself." I absolutely loved watching Warner give Juliette the verbal lashing that she has needed for the past two books. “You didn’t react against my threats. You wouldn’t respond to the things that mattered. You acted like an insolent child,” he says. “You didn’t like your clothes. You wouldn’t eat your fancy food.” … “Here I was, prepared to defend my life against an uncontrollable monster who could kill,” he says, “kill a man with her bare hands – ” He bites back another laugh. “And you threw tantrums over clean clothes and hot meals. Oh,” he says, shaking his head at the ceiling, “you were ridiculous." What surprised me the most, however, was how quickly Juliette took what Warner was saying at face value. The first 70-odd pages of Ignite Me are conversations between Warner and Juliette that mostly centred around three topics: what he says happened to Omega Point and her friends, how he says she misperceived him for the first two books, and how he isn’t the monster she always pictured him to be. While I was quick to want to believe him, because I’ve loved Warner since Destroy Me, I was also waiting for Juliette to stop being so naive and question whether he might be telling her further lies; whether he might have ulterior motives. Warner even admits, at one point, that he’s the same person he’s always been; it’s Juliette who has changed, not him. Not-so-surprising was Adam’s anger toward Juliette’s new-found compassion for Warner. What was surprising, however, was how quick he was to verbally assault Juliette, becoming this cruel and bitter version of himself I didn’t recognize. "No gun, no sword, no army or kind 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." And it’s because of his cruelty, in the face of her compassion, that Juliette begins to question what their relationship really meant. "I’ve worried so much about Adam these past weeks – the effects of his training, the news of his father – but I don’t know if it’s been out of love, or if it’s been out of guilt. He left everything for me; because he wanted to be with me. But as much as it pains me to admit it, I know I didn’t run away to be with him. Adam wasn’t my main reason; he wasn’t the driving force. I ran away for me. Because I wanted to be free. … Adam was the first and only person who’d ever shown me compassion. The first, and, at the time, only person who was able to touch me. I was caught up in the impossibility of it, so convinced fate had brought us together. … Being with Adam gave me a new kind of strength. I was still scared and still very broken and Adam cared for me, giving me a reason to stand up for myself when I was too weak to realize I had always been reason enough. … Maybe we both fell in love with the illusion of something more." SPOILER I loved watching Juliette work through her feelings for Adam. I loved watching her recognize that what she initially called “love” might have been mere attraction, born out of a desperate need for human contact with the one person she could touch; born out of a lack of options. And I loved that she was finally strong enough to separate her personal life from what was more important – finally defeating The Reestablishment. While Adam was screaming that she needed to make a choice, she was calmly telling him that their personal drama could wait, and that it would wait, while she sought to free future generations from living in fear. /END SPOILER While there is a lot of talking/thinking about romantic entanglements, most of Ignite Me is spent training for the final showdown between Juliette and co., and Anderson, the Supreme Commander of The Reestablishment. So while Juliette spends lots of time working through her many and varied feelings, for both Adam and Warner, she’s more focused on how to achieve her end goal: killing Anderson. I appreciated Juliette’s commitment to finishing what Omega Point had started, I loved her growing confidence and that when it came time to act, she was ready. While I found their plan to be shaky, at best, I enjoyed watching Juliette finally kick some butt, the way I always knew she was capable of. And I love that she did it on her own! My biggest issue with her new attitude, however, was that it was born overnight. The first few pages of Ignite Me scared me; Juliette was the crying, shaking, sobbing, broken mess from Shatter Me and Unravel Me. And then after a few revelations and a little encouragement from Warner, she was suddenly confident in her desire for justice. It was all very sudden and is the biggest reason I said that Ignite Me had very little in terms of character development. I really enjoyed Ignite Me. Sure, it wasn’t without it’s issues, but I mostly wasn’t bothered! I loved that Juliette finally became the heroine I had been looking for since Shatter Me; my only real complaint is that it took her three books to get there!
