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.”
Juliette now knows she may be the only one who can stop the Reestablishment. But to take them down, she’ll need the help of the one person she never thought she could trust: Warner. And as they work together, Juliette will discover that everything she thought she knew-about Warner, her abilities, and even Adam-was wrong.
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.

“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.
