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 putt

Update 06-19-15: Tahereh Mafi has just announced that Shatter Me is going to be a tv show! OHMYGOD. I have so many feels! We are finally going to see a physical manifestation of Warner! WHY ISN'T EVERYONE ELSE FREAKING OUT?!

It would be a huge mistake if they don't cast Hunter Parrish because he looks perfect as Warner!

Possibly, the reason why I am not loving this as much as everyone else – even though I still enjoyed it – is because I’ve finished the Shatter Me trilogy weeks ago and only now decided to pick this #1.5 novella up.

It may not have been the most intelligent thing to do, but, in my defence, novellas are not my favorite types of reads and I prefer to leave them be, so they don’t risk ruining characters or…some scenes for me. Like it happened somehow with Roar and Liv

This was good though.

...from the perspective of the villain we all love to hate, Warner.




But I don't hate Warner. I looove him.

I didn't thought I could possibly love Warner more but I was wrong. My God,he is such a sweetheart. That scene with the dog killed me. I recently saw Equilibrium and something similar happened over there.

I don't usually rate novellas/short stories but in this case I will make an exception.

Full review to come.

I love Warner so much !, I've possibly already mentioned in my old review down here, but I'll say it again. This book is so necessary if you're reading the Shatter Me trilogy, I think that will give you a new perspective of Warner and his personal story, you can't miss this one, of course it's a 5/5 Stars for me, always

In Shatter Me Juliette seduced and then wounded Warner with his own weapon to escape and help Adam, but Warner is still obsessed with her.

For people who do not like spoilers, I suggest to leave this supplementary book to the end because it gives way too much information. It is written from Warner's point of view and for me it is as wonderful as I thought.

I honestly i thought i was with Adam all the way. But reading this has completely changed my perspective on everything, i am so TORN. I cannot wait to read unravel me now..

Also the new perspective was refreshing an allowed more insight on what was happened. I almost cried twice when i found out various truths while reading this..

I'm not quite sure if an additional short story to a series can really spoil you, but I thought I might warn you just in case! ;-P
But then again the only people who will read this will be people who loved the series so umm.... We're good?! *lol*

Everyone! Quick! IT'S A BOOK FULL OF WARNER AWESOMENESS!!



This book is amazing. Poor Warner - he's feelings for Juliette are so beautiful (and often screwed up, but who doesn't love a good-looking and witty psychopath, eh?!!). He's all like:



And I'm like:


And I still am. Yeah, Adam is a winner (no arguing there) but Warner has my heart! As does Kenji, the brilliant and foul-mouthed lad he is :D

So let us have a moment to appreciate the genius that is Tahereh Mafi...

WARNER MY LOVE.

***Contains Spoilers***

I HAVE NEVER READ A NOVELLA SO QUICKLY AND INTENSELY LIKE THIS IN MY LIFE.

The whole entire 109 pages were from Warner's point of view and made me love him more than I already do. And he thinks about Juliette a ton, which may sound a bit obsessive, but it still makes me all happy inside. The ways in which he thinks about her though are so, like, I can't even put it into words. Even though Juliette hates him, I still ship her and Warner together.

So i am a huge Warner fan and this book was a sweet sweet treat! This explains his beyond creepy behavior in Shatter Me. Don't get me wrong, i have no problem with him being creepy and evil but it was still fun seeing his vulnerable side. I mean, come on! Who doesn't want to know what goes on in that psychopathic head of his?

Yes, he’s the bad guy.
No, he doesn’t need to convince me otherwise.

If I liked this amazing and complex character in Shatter Me, well now I feel like I’ve been bewitched by him, his dark mind, his fears, and his struggle. I repeat, Warner is not a good person, the world didn’t make him good, the world was not good to him eit

“Love is a heartless bastard.”

This book definitely intrigued me. Being able to see the world through Warner’s eyes was not at all what I thought it would be. The world sees him as a detached, heartless, cruel, and obsessed monster when the truth is much more complicated than that. His life is a deadly chess game and the playing board is a landmine.

Juliette turned his life upside down but also gave it meaning and hope. She’s his saving grace. And she sees him as a monster... which sucks.

THIS IS NOT A REVIEW. THIS IS A STORY. A TRAGEDY.
Years ago when I was only but a young - and fairly impressionable too, fairly- girl, I met a boy. Dark and beautiful he was, intense too, and I unwittingly fell in love with him. Abominably madly, completely in love with him. That chapter of my life's been over for almost 4 years now, almost 4 years the story's been over, and still I can't forget him. I never will.

I love Warner, he is adorable. Getting to see that there was a whole different side to him was good. I loved plain old evil Warner but knowing Warner has another side to him made me love him even more. I do believe that he loves Juliette and I want them to be together because they're actually exciting. Warner is my favourite character and he's the main reason why I love this series as much as I do.

I really liked reading from his perspective. There's a lot we don't know about Warner, and it was very interesting and very sad to see his relationship with his dad. His dad just deserves a kick to his groin ^_^
Also, definitely team Warner.

Knowing that every word in the book came from Warner, I didn’t do anything except savor every single one of them. <3 <3 <3 I just love everything about him, the way he talks, the way he acts...I even love his obsession with cleanliness. No wonder he looks so perfectly irresistible- he likes to take long baths!!! (oops, spoiler! hahaha).

Yes Warner, yes, I will marry you.

I really liked this novella, and I'm glad I read it after Ignite Me, because I was discovering these great things about Warner at the same time Juliette was <3. And I just knew it! I knew Warner had so much more inside of him and this just made me love him more if that's even possible.

Destroy Me was a really short novella taking place after Shatter Me in Warner's POV. I didn't need his side to know I was completely Team Warner . . . but this book just reinforced that I'm exactly where I should be.

“And I've fallen.

So hard.

I've hit the ground. Gone right through it. Never in my life have I felt this. Nothing like this. I've felt shame and cowardice, weakness and strength. I've known terror and indifference, self-hate and general disgust. I've seen things that cannot be unseen.

And yet I've known nothing like this terrible, horrible, paralyzing feeling. I feel crippled. Desperate and out of control. And it keeps getting worse. Every day I feel sick. Empty and somehow aching.

Love is a heartless bastard.”
