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.
I am an hourglass.
My seventeen years have collapsed and buried me from the inside out. My legs feel full of sand and stapled together, my mind overflowing with grains of indecision, choices unmade and impatient as time runs out of my body. The small hand of a clock taps me at one and two, three and four, whispering hello, get up, stand up, it’s time to
“Wake up,” he whispers.
I can definitely see how Ignite Me could be an excellent finale for this series. Am I upset that Mafi went back and wrote more? No. Will I come to regret this feeling? Only time will tell.
Ignite Me took this series to another level. All the pieces from the previous instalments come together to tell an incredible story. The timing, the plotting, and the characters are all excellent. I’m sure some people have complained about the characters changing, but all the hints are there from the beginning. I don’t think anything feels rushed or forced; in fact, I think Mafi very skilfully took a lot of random components and fit them together in a way that felt purposeful.
Honestly, if this were the end, I’d probably be a bit upset about how quickly everything came together – you’d need at least one more novella to check in and see what happened next. While I don’t think much more needs to be said – I was very happy with Ignite Me – I’m glad we’re not done with this series yet; I finally feel invested in these characters and this world.
