it's almosttime for war.
Juliette has escaped to Omega Point. It is a place for people like her—people with gifts—and it is also the headquarters of the rebel resistance.
She's finally free from The Reestablishment, free from their plan to use her as a weapon, and free to love Adam. But Juliette will never be free from her lethal touch.
Or from Warner, who wants Juliette more than she ever thought possible.
In this exhilarating sequel to Shatter Me, Juliette has to make life-changing decisions between what she wants and what she thinks is right. Decisions that might involve choosing between her heart—and Adam's life.

My Take:

Ever since Juliette can remember she has been used this way or that way and even though she knows she is safe she still feels being cautious is easier. At first she was on bored with everything and willing to fight for the cause. But being at the center of attention and everyone finding out who she is and what she can do is tough. Are they still willing to risk themselves for her. Having the power she has is risky and even finding how she can us it puts not only her but the people she cares about at risk.

Of course things change once word gets out that Warner is searching for her personally. With time being lost to her training and helping out as possible as she can, Castle feels that her being there is sparking a revolution on the outside. So even though one threat is looking for her, there is also the fact that Warner's father is their as well. He only wants one thing and that is to end all the nonsense of war. Even though they are together, can the people who have been cast out spark a new revolution for the people too scared to try. Or will the Reestablishment put an end to them all even as valuable as Juliette is, can not foresee what is to happen if or when things go wrong.

While reading Unravel Me, I couldn't help but wonder how powerful one government can be. Even though  Juliette is learning how to harvest her power, its still tough being put on for everyone to see. She is valuable and when she is not letting her emotions cloud her, her power can drive any one to retreat. When you gain something its hard to lose it again and even though everyday is still a struggle at least Juliette has people who are willing to stand beside her. 

5/5 Stars - Still epic and still Team Adam
