Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

The Shatter Me series is perfect for fans who crave action-packed young adult novels with tantalizing romance like Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Legend by Marie Lu. 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.

Et bien voilà, après tant d'attente, une nuit blanche et une journée passée à lire dans l'anxiété la plus folle, c'est fini. Et je ne peux m'empêcher de me sentir horriblement triste de quitter cette histoire extraordinaire et tous ses personnages.

Difficile de faire un avis sans rien révéler de l'intrigue, et surtout de la fin de ce troisième et dernier tome. Je crois bien être passée par toutes les émotions possibles et imaginables pendant sa lecture : joie, tristesse, amusement, peur, dégoût, enthousiasme, excitation, allégresse, frustration, dépit, soulagement, angoisse et j'en passe... Mon dieu, Tahereh Mafi est à la fois une sadique, un génie et un tortionnaire. Mais c'est avant tout une merveilleuse conteuse d'histoire, qui n'a pas peur de prendre des risques. Jusqu'au bout j'ai été incertaine quant à la fin de l'histoire. Jusqu'au bout j'ai espéré, j'ai pleuré, j'ai ri et j'ai aimé.

Mais ce mot est trop faible je pense pour expliquer ce que j'ai ressenti pendant ma lecture. Je me suis retenue de nombreuses fois d'aller jeter un coup d'oeil à la fin, et cela m'a mise dans un état pas possible. Cela faisait longtemps que je n'avais pas vécu une histoire en même temps que je la lisais, et j'en ressors exténuée. Exténuée mais franchement impressionnée.

Il y a des moments de grâce dans ce roman. De fabuleux passages qui vous transportent totalement, une histoire d'amour merveilleuse, qui n'est pas forcément celle qu'on croit.

Après avoir terminé le tome 2 d’Unravel me, il était clair que je ne pouvais pas laisser Juliette, Adam, Kenji et Warner. J’ai donc décidé d’enchaîner avec Ignite me, troisième et dernier tome de la série.

Tandis que le tome 2 s’achevait sur un cliffangher haletant, ce troisième donne le ton : Omega Point est mal en point et plus aucun espoir ne semble demeurer. Tahereh Mafi nous met tout de suite dans l’ambiance avec, cependant, une nuance : Tout ce que vous pensiez savoir sur la série, vous pouvez oublier. De même que la vision de Juliette sur son monde et ceux qui l’entoure s’éclaircit, la nôtre aussi. Clairement lire ce livre est une tuerie.

De nombreuses surprises, des rebondissements de folie et des révélations concernant certains personnages vont vous faire découvrir l’intrigue sous un nouveau jour. Détracteurs de Warner, je parie que vous retournerez rapidement votre chemise suite à la lecture d’Ignite me.

En effet, je n’ai jamais vu personnage plus complexe que lui. Ni aussi bien traité. Ses facettes sont nombreuses et on apprend à l’aimer depuis le tome 2 déjà. Moi qui était plutôt pro-Adam au départ, je l’avoue, Warner a su me sortir des arguments plus que convaincants.

Même Juliette nous surprend. Il est bien loin le temps où l’on avait pitié de cette frêle jeune fille, isolée, rejetée et effrayée par son don. Un don qui a, lui aussi, bien évolué depuis !

La lecture d’Ignite me aura été un tel plaisir qu’il ne m’a fallu qu’une soirée pour le terminer.

J'ai trouvé cette conclusion des Shatter me series excellente, un vrai plaisir à la lecture. Après avoir fini le 2ème tome je ne pouvait pas attendre le 3ème, et je n'ai pas été déçue. Juliette n'est pas le genre d'héroïne des romans «à l'eau de rose» qui garde plus ou moins la même personnalité tout le long de la série; elle évolue tout le long de l'histoire, et devient peu à peu une jeune fille independente et déterminée, laissant derrière elle la petite fille effrayée et sensible qu'elle était dans Shatter me. Elle est prète à se battre pour une cause qui lui semble juste, et sa force de caractère m'a laissée bouche bée, sans parler de l'histoire d'amour qui commence entre elle et Warner.
Pour être honnête, je suis presque triste qu''il n'y ai pas d'autres tomes, Juliette était un personnage si attachant que ça va être difficile de m'en «séparer».
LES PERSONAGES:
Kenji est très drôle comme toujours et il m'a beaucoup fait rire, encore plus que dans les autres tomes.
James est tout simplement adorable et m'a fait éclater de rire avec ses petite remarques innocentes.
Juliette, comme je l'ai dis plus tôt, se transforme et devient prête à se battre, cela nous change de la petite fille qui ne voulait faire de mal à personne; ce n'est pas qu'elle devient méchante: elle découvre simplement sa véritable personnalité qui est plus «vivante» que celle qu'elle croyait avoir.
Adam, toujours le même jeune homme sensible, va voir sa relation avec Juliette changer...vous verrez de quelle façon en lisant...

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful writing couldn't save it 14 février 2014
Par Krista @ Krista's Dust Jacket - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat authentifié par Amazon
It took me several days to congeal my thoughts about Ignite Me into something that I could actually put into words. My review that follows is not one I normally would write, in that, it’s rife with spoilers. I do apologize for that. To be honest, the writing of this review is going to be somewhat cathartic for me, and I’m sorry that you who haven’t read it yet, are on the receiving end of my word vomit.

I will say that Tahereh Mafi is an absolutely beautiful writer. It flows and ebbs like water and she has the ability to elicit real emotion from me without much apparent effort. Her use of symbolism is unmatched. And, something new that I discovered about her – this woman knows how to write romance. Face-fanning, lady-bit tingling, jelly-legged romance. It’s good stuff.

And, seriously, the covers of all her books in the Shatter Me series are orgasms for my eyes. They are the most beautiful series covers I’ve ever seen.

So, on to the spoilers. If you haven’t read Ignite Me, you will want to stop now.

Seriously – stop reading if you don’t want to know who Juliette picked.

Last warning.

My feelings on whether I “liked” or “did not like” Ignite Me are not wrapped up in whether my team won or lost. It’s not nearly as simplistic as that, although some might dispute that. Certainly, I’ll be the first one to admit that I wish Juliette had chosen the other guy, and that fact does color my overall opinion of the book to some degree. How could it not?

We, as book fans, become so involved in our favorite characters’ lives that we create Twitter handles and websites dedicated to them. We passionately advocate for our favorite crushes and couples in tournaments and create badges and buttons announcing our allegiances for our blogs and Facebook pages. Of course the outcome of love triangles are going to affect our overall impressions of the books in which they are found, and there is nothing wrong with that.

I have always said that the worst way out of a love triangle is to kill off one of the choices. And, I realized after finishing Ignite Me that that is exactly what Mafi did here. Granted, both Adam and Warner were physically alive in the end. But, all the qualities that made up the Adam that was introduced to us in Shatter Me died a fiery, horrible death over the course of this 408-page book, and frankly, it makes me more angry than anything else.

Adam captured my heart from the very beginning. The story of how this boy helped this girl and became her only friend when no one else would dare brought tears to my eyes. Then, after spending years trying to find her, he risks everything to free her from both her physical and mental prison. He loved her practically his whole life, and the greatest gift was when he heard that her love was returned. He naturally wanted to protect her from all the bad scary things (love kinda makes you want to do that), but he also believed that she could be so much more.

That man was nowhere to be found in Ignite Me.

I appreciate that Juliette wanted to stop hiding and start living. But, didn’t she do that the second she jumped out of her bedroom window with Adam? Wasn’t she standing up for herself when she pointed that gun in Kenji’s face while in Adam’s apartment? Didn’t she take charge of her life when she made the decision to take Adam and James to Omega Point in the first place? And, didn’t Adam support her and go along with it all?

The Adam that was presented to us in Ignite Me was bitter, cold and hateful. He was indecisive and angry. It was almost as if Mafi was trying to force her choice down my throat. I hate to break it to her, but I could’ve gotten behind her decision to put Juliette with Warner if she had given me a good reason why. But, vilifying and demonizing Adam in order to paint a more radical contrast between he and the now angelic Warner felt so wrong to me. If two characters are going to completely switch personalities over the course of a series, I want a solid reason why, and unrequited love isn’t one. Not for these two guys.

In the end, I just didn’t believe any of it.

Sadly, if you put all the relationship drama aside, there isn’t much left in Ignite Me. Whereas Shatter Me and Unravel Me focused a lot on the development of Juliette’s powers and how they might take down the Reestablishment, Ignite Me was all angst and guilt and hormones. There was very little said about Juliette’s, Warner’s and Adam’s powers, and almost nothing about the secondary characters’ powers (so little, in fact, that I forgot what they were until about 85% through).

All three books were leading up to the final showdown between Juliette and Anderson. We didn’t even see Anderson until the final pages of the book. And, then it was over. Just like that. All the waiting and anticipation was over so fast, and I literally said out loud, “So, that’s it then?” I wanted so much more! I wanted to know what was beyond Sector 45 and how the destruction of it and Anderson was going to affect the rest of the country. Is there even a country? What does the world look like? The world-building has always been a little weak for my liking, and I was thinking we’d finally fill in those holes in Ignite Me.

Not so.

Now that it’s all said and done and I’ve had some time to reflect on my true feelings regarding Ignite Me, I realize that I just feel cheated. What I thought was the whole point (taking down the leader of the regime that has been oppressing people for years) ended up being buried amid the unrealistic destruction of one character loved by many and the unbelievable elevation of another to one who could do absolutely nothing wrong. The shaping of Juliette’s budding abilities and personality was squashed by her constant indecision in the “I love him, I love him not” game.

Or, maybe, I missed the point entirely.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Truly Juliette's story. 7 février 2014
Par Cheshire Cat - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat authentifié par Amazon
Shatter Me and Unravel Me are among my favorite reads, so I was highly anticipating Ignite Me. From the start I was completely locked into the story, soaking up all of Mafi's beautiful writing, absorbed in Juliette's story. Tahereh Mafi once again proved to me that she is a true artist of the written word, entwining beautiful prose with witty banter with lyrical thoughts with true-to-life dialogue. It is always a pleasure to read her words.

STORY: Ignite Me picks up right where Unravel Me left off, throwing us right back into the story and Juliette's mindset. We are faced both with Juliette's struggle and growth to find and be her true self, and we are faced with how our characters will ultimately decide if and/or when they will fight The Reestablishment.

But one thing you must understand is that this story is really more of a study of its main characters and the human condition and centers around Juliette, not necessarily her world at large. While The Reestablishment and Anderson are problems to be solved, they aren't the predominant focus. If you are looking for lots of high intensity action scenes, you will be disappointed. More than anything this is a story of character, watching Juliette grow from novel to novel (as can be seen not just from Juliette's words, but from the writing style progression itself), and looking at characters beyond just the surface level. Going into this story with an open mind and not setting plot expectations will definitely benefit the reader. If you want lots of action and don't want layers of delving into relationship thoughts and drama, then this might not be for you. If I were to guess, I'd say it's 20% action, 80% relationship and character development (and this might be generous).

JULIETTE: This is truly Juliette's story more than anything. We really get to see Juliette complete the growth she started in Shatter Me, becoming the person she ultimately was meant to be, but was too afraid or too oppressed to become before. Mafi writes Juliette's story beautifully, truly fleshing Juliette out. I loved reading about Juliette's personal growth, her desires and wishes, her dreams and goals, her strength and determination. I loved watching her find herself and not letting other people determine who she is. It was refreshing to read about a heroine who found strength and trust in herself without it being put-offish. We also get to see how she has embraced being around her friends, which is amazing considering where she came from. And, yes, we get to see her love life develop, which was also quite amazing (though more mature than the previous books).

WARNER: While we see Juliette grow and become who she was meant to be, we see Warner reveal who he has always been but no one could see it or he didn't show it. There are many revelations about Warner, and though we got a glimpse of these things in Unravel Me, there is even more to come here. Watching him was both heart-breaking and heart-warming at the same time. Now I'm not going to say Warner was a saint in the past or anything, but I really loved getting to know him and truly seeing his whole self. His interactions with Juliette were particularly powerful and clarifying and beautiful. They really strengthened each other. But there were some other moments with other characters too (avoiding spoilers), that I found quite touching and revealing.

ADAM: If you've read Fracture Me, then you've already had a glimpse into Adam's psyche and where he was at in the beginning of Ignite Me. While I didn't like all the ways Adam was written here, I do understand where Mafi was headed with him, I just thought a few instances were a bit extreme. I understand that not everyone is exactly as we see them, that there are many underlying layers to a person, and no one is perfect or reacts perfectly. With Adam, while more of himself was revealed, I still felt like his character wasn't developed quite as much as Juliette and Warner's and I wish that he'd been fleshed out more. But I still felt pretty resolved with where he ultimately landed.

KENJI: Ah, scene-stealing Kenji! There is nothing not to like about Kenji. I could read an entire series just about him. He is the perfect best friend, partner, ally, cheerleader, support person, comedic relief, reality check, and all-around awesome guy.

LOVE TRIANGLE: Yeah, it's there, kinda sorta. Well, it really just lots of drama. And no, I'm not going to say what happened with this crazy trio. I think a quote is best used here, and this quote can also be used as a warning:

"This is, by far, the craziest s*** I have ever seen," Kenji says. "I really never would've believed it. Not in a million years."
"It's like a soap opera." Ian nods. "But with worse acting."
"I think it's kind of sweet," Winston says.

ENDING: Avoiding spoilers, I will just say that the final conflict felt rushed to me. With all the relationship stuff, I was hoping for a little more balance when it came to the actual action and climactic conclusion. There were certain things I was hoping to see and certain questions I was hoping to get answered, but not all of them did. But perhaps, like in life, we aren't meant to have the answers to every single question out there. Remembering that it is Juliette's POV reminds me that perhaps all those other things just weren't important to her at this time. The final conflict is quick but satisfactory and I have no complaints of the ultimate conclusion. The end itself, the final pages, were beautiful and lovely and fitting just as I imagined Mafi would have left it.

OVERALL: The Shatter Me series, even with the few issues I had with this final conclusion, still remains amongst my list of series favorites. The combination of Tahereh Mafi's gorgeous writing and her complex and beautiful characters is reason enough to read this series. Ignite Me is a wonderful conclusion, and I truly enjoyed reading it.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Most disappointing series finale I've read in a long time 17 février 2014
Par Sara @ Forever 17 Books - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS

Ignite Me was a series finale I was anxious and nervous for. For one, Shatter Me has been one of my favorite series thus far, with its poetic and beautiful writing and complex and interesting characters. The nerves stemmed from a combination of fear of the massive love triangle that developed in the sequel, Unravel Me, and from numerous recent series finales that left me a little disappointed. I was leery of where this one would fit but I put my big girl panties on and jumped in with two feet on the day of release.

I should start out by saying I was a firm Team Adam supporter heading in. I found him protective and swoony in Shatter Me and he broke my heart in Unravel Me, but I had faith, despite the novella, Fracture Me. One has to hold onto hope sometimes, right? I was not a fan of that novella. It felt pointless, like just a rehashing of previous events, with no real substance. I guess novellas are supposed to be that way sometimes? I don’t know. I don’t really care for them in general and make it a habit of skipping them completely. But it felt just thrown together and then showed us a small piece of an Adam I didn’t recognize. But again, I had faith in my boy that he was just going through a hard time and Tahereh Mafi was trying to throw us off. I regretted reading it but in the scheme of things, it’s probably best I did or the Adam she created in Ignite Me would have surprised me even more so than it did.

If it was unclear the direction the love triangle was going to take heading in, it was immediately cleared up within the first few chapters. How so? Well, we spend the first approximately 15% of the book changing everything I enjoyed about Warner’s character. Every bad thing he did to Juliette in the previous books or that upset her was explained away into being untrue with excuse after excuse. Locking her up for future use as a weapon? Oh he was just following orders and studying her to try to help his sick mother. Making her hurt a child? Oh that didn’t really happen, it was a simulation chamber. He was trying to get her angry and find her strength to fight back and use her powers. That soldier he shot? He was a wife and child beater so it is totally fine. It left me thinking one word – convenient. Just the whole manner of how it was revealed to Juliette didn’t sit right with me. The only thing that he seemed to really be responsible for was trying to kill her best friend and boyfriend at the time. But in the end it didn’t seem to bother Juliette much.

I’m all for bad guys turning it around and turning into the good guy but being the villain was what made Warner so great! He was so complex and interesting that way! I didn’t care for this Warner like I did before. I would have rathered he stayed that way and Mafi found a way to still get these two to move past all of that and find love.

The next like 50% of the book then gave Adam a complete personality transplant. Adam became so upset with Juliette, and honestly, some of that anger was justified and warranted, to a degree. She threw him aside for his own good and moved on with his brother, the one person he hated more than his father. He overreacted something fierce though. We got chapter after chapter of him yelling at her, rehashing the same argument over and over, each one getting worse than the previous. It was repetitive and beyond ridiculous how far it went. Who was this Adam? I had never met him before because this was not the Adam I fell in love with. I know people sometimes change or become different version of themselves than we thought they were, especially in relationships, but this was overkill. Was Mafi trying to overcompensate for something? There was no reason for this to go on and on and to the extent it did to explain away why Warner was in and Adam was out. I’m not sure if Mafi thought that these role reversals and personality changes would happily sway Team Adam supporters to switch sides easily but if that was her intentions it failed miserably, in my opinion. Maybe she was just trying to make Juliette’s decision easier. My complete upset was not based on which guy won out in the end, it was how she chose to get us there. It was insulting and felt like a slap in the face as an Adam fan. In fact, what probably got my blood boiling the most was how Juliette then used Adam’s new behavior to rationalize that she never loved Adam in the first place. He was just the first person to show an interest in her that she could touch. There was never a connection to him. The connection to Adam stemmed from Warner. Wow. So glad that little bit I could hold onto from Shatter Me was so easily dismissed and taken away from me. And you know what? Adam was never given a chance to redeem himself. This mean and angry Adam was what we got until the end, the very little bit he played in the book at that point. How disappointing.

To wrap up my thoughts on the love triangle, I think I must clear up any notions some might have that I didn’t like this book just because of Adam. Believe me, there have been other series I adored with my guy losing out and I still enjoyed the last novel. In the end, it is probably for the best Juliette moved on. I wouldn’t want Juliette with this Adam either. Nor him with her, for that matter. Adam became someone who was afraid to fight, wanting instead to try to find a way to stay safe with his brother. I understood why he felt this way. But that wasn’t Juliette anymore. She wanted to fight. And Warner was more supportive of that. Warner and Juliette did have some scenes together, eventually, that I enjoyed. Mafi sure can write sexy scenes, I’ll give her that. But spending almost 75% of the book on this love triangle was overkill. I was rolling my eyes, yelling at the book to move on and I even started to skim, which is sad for a series I used to hang onto every word of. It could have been done so much quicker, leaving more room for the final showdown and other issues I was dying to see resolved. And it could have been done with more respect to the characters we grew to love and the passionate fans that stood by them for all of these books.

Finally towards the end things started to happen and it picked up for me, getting me excited and out of my foul mood. But it was all so rushed! I had been waiting and waiting for the big reveal to Warner that Adam and James were his brothers and it literally happened and ended within a few pages. That was it. It was basically glossed right over. Warner instantly changed his attitude towards Adam and Adam seemed to almost do the same. *sigh*

Juliette developing into the full force of her powers seemed pretty quick too. All of a sudden she was this huge powerhouse that no one could content with. She wanted to switch the soldiers’ allegiance and it happened with one tiny speech and superpower show. Not to mention her newfound desire to run the Reestablishment? Uh huh. Which leads me to the final showdown… that wasn’t. Juliette was a total badass at the end but did Anderson even have any lines, or more than one? And in all honesty, I wanted Warner and Adam to be a part of Anderson’s takedown. After everything that man did to them, they should have been there! Can you imagine if the three of them found a way to work together for it? It would have been epic and that might have really created a bridge between them for the future. I would have loved that. But alas, this was not meant to be.

Something else I noticed lacking in this finale was the beautiful writing style that is Mafi’s writing. There were a few passages, mostly later on in the book, but for the most part it wasn’t there. God, I remember soaking in all the beautiful words in Shatter Me and Unravel Me but they were noticeably absent here.With how the book was so focused on repetitive aspects of the love triangle and rushed through the actual action and excitement, it makes me wonder if Mafi rushed through, or struggled, writing this. It felt so off to me.

So just what did I like? Kenji! He stole the show, as usual. Thank god for his humor to lighten things up and make me smile. James was as adorable as ever, the bits and pieces we saw of him. And again, Mafi is spectacular at writing love scenes that cause chills to run down my spine. I hope she writes a romance novel someday, a standalone without a love triangle, preferably. lol

I apologize for how ranty and lengthy this review has become. I just… I have a lot of feelings on this book and I needed to get them out so I can have some sort of closure and move on. In fact, I’m not even touching upon a few other issues I had like the world building, my dislike for Juliette, and the lack of use of the Omega Point characters. But I’m thankful to have had so many fellow readers and bloggers to talk to as I was reading Ignite Me and immediately after. The support in knowing I was not alone in my thoughts, when so many positive reviews were circling, was just what I needed.

So if you are skipping the whole review and coming down to just this last line: Ignite Me lost what made this series so great for me – the beautiful poetic writing and complex and interesting characters to root for.

I do not give 5 stars out often. However, this book deserves it.
It was full of the same emotion and intensity that I loved so much in the first two Shatter Me books. Unlike so many other trilogy's, the writing quality does not taper.
And the ending! Such a surprising, and yet complete ending. I really appreciate that, especially since so many popular trilogy's have had disappointing endings lately. Many Author's seem to be trying so hard to surprise their readers, and as a result the ending is sad, or to open, or just doesn't make sense. Mafi manages to surprise her readers and give us closure. Well done!
Let me be upfront. This is a love story that happens to be set in a dystopian world. This book is about relationships, and also about the lead becoming a stronger, better version of herself. It is about broken people who learn to not let their scars define them. if you want action, then this might fall a little flat for you. I am not saying there isn't action, there is, but it isn't the book's main focus. That was never the series focus, so that makes sense. However, this book really clarifies what the entire series was all about.
As far as the love triangle goes, all I will say is that there was never a love triangle. I didn't understand how Mafi could say that in an early interview before Ignite me was released, but now I get it. No matter who you were shipping, you have to admit she ends up with the right person. :-)

Oh. My. Gosh.

Are there even words for this?

Ignite Me was 100% perfect. Everything I could have asked for. It was thrilling, intense, amazing, and the character growth was spectacular. And of course, Tahereh Mafi's writing was fantastic.

Ignite Me is the best book in the trilogy. And the Shatter Me series is one of the best series I've ever read. No other series has gripped my emotions the way this one has. It's complex, romantic, fierce, and adventurous.

I laughed, gasped, shouted, and ached for the characters in this installment. My breathing sped up, my heart raced, and there were some moments I had to put it down. Reading this series is almost more intense than riding on a roller coaster the way it gripped me and affected me.

I won't spoil the book. I won't spoil any details, even though 50% of me is so eager to shout everything from the rooftops and scream OMG I KNOW RIGHT about each scene. But I suppose it's a good thing I have so many friends who read. SOMEONE PLEASE FINISH THIS SO WE CAN TALK ABOUT IT OMG.

Brilliant.

And wow. Warner. Was everything I ever thought he could be. *sigh*

Juliette surprised me and I was so proud of her. I never would have imagined she'd be where she was in Ignite Me when I first picked up Shatter Me. I think it's awesome.
