Riding Windhorses: A Journey into the Heart of Mongolian Shamanism yTheir present selves They never had a moment of looking at each other with the weight of new memories on their backs and they never even talked about their shared history other than doou remember me and Polar Bears yeah The majority of Warner s feelings for Juliette developed during the last four months so it felt really uncomfortable that he would revert back to Ella so uickly when it was Juliette he felt such deep feelings for I m not saying it s entirely unrealistic just that I wish there would ve been a longer explanation or transition rather than the abrupt jump from one name to another with no notable differentiation between the twoWaiting fourears to publish add on books and then changing the identity of Trial of Temepl Anneke: Records of a Witchcraft Trial in Brunswick, Germany, 1663 your main characters fiveears after their established names is just too much for me I ve been loving these books for almost seven Possessed by Memory: The Inward Light of Criticism years and I can t make that change overnight even though I m trying to be willing to see them as Ella and Aaron The sex scene It s weird that all my complaints about this book are about the romance because warnette is literally what keeps these books afloat but this was just bad 90% of my trouble with the romance is because the name changes make my brain think they re different characters but still The dialogue between them is so clunky and it just reads like Fanfiction for some reason Also for a reuniting make up sex scene it was drastically underwhelming the same type of fade to black that chapter 55 was but without any of the climactic angst or sexy dialogue Also Juliette is not a screamer and I will die on that hill Alsoall got condoms I m NOT dealing with a book 6 pregnancy plot Also the fact that afterward Kenji waltzes in the room while they re both half naked is just so out of character I know this is all so specific but like ughRandomDumb complaints ie things I wish were different but it s just my own selfishness and let down expectations not necessarily flaws with the book or writing itself I will always harbor resentment that we weren t given a scene of all the characters reacting humorously to Warner s first name At this point even if we get it belatedly it s still not gonna be that funny For so many characters including Juliette to name drop Warner so often and all the side characters give no response it reeeeally let me down that there was no theatrical or funny moment of them being like hahah whoa Where Are You Going, Baby Lincoln? you have a first name like not even Adam gave a reaction It just makes me think that maybe they knew all along and that kinda makes me sad bc for soooo long once again I thought they didn t know and it would ve been funny if they found out Juliette waking up in her childhood bedroom and meeting her parents was a disappointing scene for me because it felt like the same character she was at the beginning of Ignite Me In Restore Me she went through this whole transformation of now I don t give a shit and she got so much confidentet she still became such a blubbering mess multiple times in this book Now again I don t want this to be construed as me calling Juliette weak or annoying because I will LITERALLY fight anyone who thinks this and it s the number one thing that gets me heated when I see it in negative reviews but still the way Juliette s dramatic reactions to things felt so out of character with the growth that she experienced in the past two books Ppl were roasting Delalieu so hard and my lil snake man did not deserve it Honestly if the twins don t heal him im unstanning The first time I read the book I got a lot of anxiety from the idea that Juliette was made almost like a robot rather than a human being This isn t uite a criticism any but this book is teetering on the edge of uncomfortable and if that is expanded or exploited in book six it might make it irreparably painful or unrealistic for me to readuestionstheories HOW DOES ANDERSON KNOW WHAT WARNER S BEEN DOING WHY THE SEX IN THE AFTERNOONS LINE IM SO DISTURBED I M BEYOND WORDS WHAT THE FUUUUUUU What are the plans Anderson made for James and Adam What if Leila is in the asylum Why does Warner remember his mom in the NZ lab Is what juliette experiences as her mom works on her what Leila was inflicted with Anderson told warner I stole our memories of a lot of things and I neED TO KNOW WHAT ELSE HE DOESN T REMEMBER Did he have a childhood with Adam in it Are there memories with his mom Baseball Other siblings More abuse Idk I m stressed4319The I think about it the and I think this really just isnt on the same level as the other books and theres 2 major plot points that i really just don t like so im lowering this to 4 stars or maybe even a 35421945 stars Something stops me from giving this a full five because there were actually a number of things that I m not a fan of but I know from past experience that rereading it helps it feel real
SO I MIGHT JUST HAVE TOI might just have to that but stillI devoured this so fast I didn t even have time to mark it as currently reading on goodreads but HOOOLLYY SHITTTTTTTT this plot twist had me literally running around my house and screaming I M DEAD This was SO MUCH BETTER THAN I WAS EXPECTING IT AND I WAS EXPECTING TO BE FANTASTIC THIS WAS EVERYTHINGThis just made it to the third best book in the series for meIgnite me Unravel me and Defy meWarnette is life Although the ship name is not the best and the only reasons i m And the only reasons I m still this series because of Warnette and Kenji That s itI have one word to describe this book EVERYTHING And now I have to wait 1 ear for the next and final book of this series After the last book I was so scared to read this one seriously Juliette and Warner had gone through such a mess in the first three books and then the last book was like nooooooooooo And then this tear my freaking heart apart with the back flash scenes already I was balling like a babyI loved Juliette in this loved Warner in this really loved Kenji in this Those are my three little children Nazeera was awesome too and her character ARC really opened up and shined here There are a lot of twists here a lot of shocking moments a lot of me with heart eyes and teary eyes and all kinds of emotional eyes And that freaking ending was perfect which only makes me scared for this last book But I need it now This review and other non spoilery reviews can be found The Book Prescription It s not insane to imagine that sometimes even horrible people are searching for a way out of their own darkness Adele once said This is the end hold Shout Out for the Fitzgerald-Trouts your breath and count to ten I think she was talking about Defy Me I think this book brought the end of this series I also had to count to ten so I don t throw my iPad after finishing the bookThis is an angry review andour boy is about to serve some tea So as The Editor you saw in my review of the last novel and novella in this series I was not happy I had low expectations no high hopes for this series But Tahereh did it She found a way to make it worse and for that I salute her This reminds me of University where doctors used to tell us we don t make anyone fail unless they absolutely want to So what went wrongI think not many things went right to start with I thought the series may have used an extension but I am sure that it does not need it now Ifou go to the first trilogy Abortion Across Borders: Transnational Travel and Access to Abortion Services you will find that it has many 1 star reviews and it was controversial Tahereh used a poetic prose then that readers either loved or hate There was so much love for Warner and Kenji was growing a fan baseTahereh wanted this series to succeed so she went with what people want Kenji Warner More Juliette will always be Juliette and less Adam I hate thisI think this may have pleased some readers but I think Tahereh s true success was when she was herself when she kept using her style despite all the criticism The writing is actually so average now I can t distinguish that it was written by the same old Tahereh as I was able to This is not totally bad and it may give new readers a chance to read the series But what I hated most was the plot it is like everything we know is a lie everything is cancelled More cancelled than James Charles is I think this is a major pet peeve for me now When authors suddenly are likeou know the character that we spent 3 books trying to kill He s actually alive because that was a Doppelganger and I forgot to tell Travel Far and Mad Libs you that This is not the case here don t worry it is not a spoiler These changes are not exclusive to the story line the characters changed too Juliette is back to book 1 or 2 level of development Kenji my babe is now cringy Warner the dark brooding hero is now soft and fluffyWho areou people Summary So I think I can go on and on about this series but ou get the point I think Tahereh ruined this series for part of us while trying to please the other part I think that this series now is beyond savingWill I continue the series ever again I seriously don t know if this was the first book then it will be a definite No from me but since this is book 5 I may read this just out of curiosity Actual Rating 15 starsI am so salty and angry Tahereh just single handedly destroyed this series for me I have some alternative titles for this book Disappoint me Frustrate me Ruin me Fail me Milk me Actually not this sounds very ba.

Ke a toll on anyone I mean well im starting to think that series has been two books too longyet again heres another filler book i would say only about 50 pages of this are actually vital to the plot progression and story the other 300 feels like mafi writing fanfiction of her own books she is really milking this story and dragging it out as long as she can i guessthe only reason i didnt hate this is because i still really enjoy the characters i know im the only person on this planet who prefers adam over warner so i wish this had of him but warner fans will be over the moon with this installment which totally should have been a side novella bu SEE FULL REVIEW HERE s still difficult to rate this book Definitely not 4 or 5 stars but I don t know if I could go lower This book s two halves are competing to be the worst half the first half is SO boring and over explained with no plot points and the second half is the characters calling themselves by new names with cliche and annoying dialogue I didn t find myself as upset by this as I was the first times I read it but I don t think the book got any better I just was prepared that it wasn t going to be what I was hoping42819This review is going to sound really negative but truthfully I think this book has eual parts good and bad The difference is whereas all the other Shatter Me books good parts outweighs any bad that exists this book had so many terrible scenes and lines of dialogue that were not be redeemed by the sparse action and melodramatic romance scenes There s really no way for me to jump into this other than chronologically so here we go ReunionsThe reunions sucked because the stakes felt so low and I never felt any adrenaline or excitement about their reunion It was just sort of Oh Like Lifetime Movie Network called and they want their script back Every single line of it was so annoying and nothing about them reuniting was uniue There was no description of the desperation of the two or how each other looked it was all Juliette s cliche crying and apologies and blanket statements like he s alive and he s intact Since we ve known for 300 pages that Warner is fine it s really anticlimactic for Juliette to be like omg he s alive Like eah we know I just really was not digging this writing at ALLMore than the dramatic cheesy dialogue and Juliette breaking out into cliche sobs I LOATHE how she was the one apologizing to him Juliette did NOTHING wrong in Restore Me except not communicate with him but she blamed herself for everything and Warner didn t even think to I don t know APOLOGIZE BACK Warner was literally the one in the wrong but Juliette was the one apologizing profusely I wanted them to solve their shit instead of pretending like everything will be perfect until the end of time Which is another thing that bothers meIn Restore Me Kenji very accurately stated something like You have to talk and figure out All We Have to Fear: Psychiatry's Transformation of Natural Anxieties Into Mental Disorders your shit beforeour relationship can be okay but the second warnette made eye contact in this book their relationship was perfect all over again with zero discussion except no lies which like blah Again I felt like a bunch of development from Restore Me just got dumped down a drain I wanted Juliette to continue being angry with him I wanted her to demand an apology and them to have a long discussion about what went wrong instead of them collapsing into each others arms crying melodramatically and then her apologizing and them being like NOTHING IS WRONG WITH OUR LOVE AND OUR PAST IS THE PAST AND WE WILL BE TOGETHER FOREVERThe engagementI don t like it I get it But I don t like it I understand Warner s motivation I understand the we don t know we have tomorrow so I want to be together now But there s so many flaws in that logic I think mostly it s knowing Tahereh said that she s not killing off Warner or Juliette that makes it so anti climactic Warner being worried they won t survive is just kind of bullshit because we know they will Also I know that Warner says he considers their residence in 241 a new beginning free from obligation and the beginning of a new life but it s such an unceremonious boring place I wish that their engagement could be attached to somewhere that s sentimental for them rather than just a tent in the middle of nowhere I m also trying to justify these criticisms against knowing that Warner isn t one for theatrics I understand he wouldn t want to make a huge deal out of it but his not knowing he s supposed to have a ring is just out of character Especially when he s able to chime off random facts about Tangled Writing StyleI think this is the part of the book that let me down the mostShatter Me has been an iconic book for its
Metaphors And Description Andand description and detailing so it s like this book is from another author completely There s a difference between evolved writing and laziness It just completely lacks any character or setting descriptions Both within each scene and throughout the entire book if I didn t have the characters faces and descriptions memorized it d be hard to even get a sense of what they were like Particularly in the reuniting scene and with Juliette s biological parents I think the writing veered toward dry and boring because it left out any uniue descriptions that would make those scenes vivid or meaningful We re meeting her real parents for the first time which is HUGE and we don t even get their hair color until the end It was just so sloppyAlso there were certain points where new information would be revealed and someone would ask a rhetorical uestion and Picnic Comma Lightning you could tell it only functioned so that readers could keep up with the story Honestly this criticism is mean but it felt like this book was written for the dumbasses who ask stupid uestions about the series because they didn t understand the subtlety of the previous books and so Tahereh started spelling things out plainly far too plainly in my opinion I know books in series should stop and giveou an idea of the previous books but still the number of times that characters stopped and asked such clunky rhetorical uestions and had paragraphs long recaps of stuff we already know just became disappointing Also the two week time skip within this book is something I really don t like A lot of opportunities were lost to flesh out the world building and Juliette s parents and stuff I feel like we were cheated out of descriptions of Juliette s day to day life that really would have expanded the story to a meaningful level We never got scenes of her pretending to have her memory wiped We never got scenes of her interacting with her parents pretending to be civil never got her reactions to information as she was receiving it only in hindsight I m just upset that SO much of this time skip was omitted because I think we lost a lot of valuable information and details I was so excited that this book was set in New Zealand but we literally didn t get a single description of it other than the brief time she was on a balcony which was told in a flashback Massive let downFinally the cheesiness The dialogue in this was awful times than not Usually warnette lines are iconic and meaningful but I could actually compile a list of lines they say to each other in heated or passionate or cute moments that completely ruined the mood for me because they were so cheesy or typical or blah The name changesI think Juliette s name change had the potential to be okay Two things could have sold me on it first the characters actually continue to call her Juliette UNTIL she s indicated that she doesn t want to be called it any I know that s her birth name and her real identity but the other characters deciding for her that that s who she s gonna be rubbed me the wrong way I understand Nazeera or even Warner considering her Ella but everyone else being so uick to jump on board just felt really icky because it was like they were deciding who she was without her being there or her consent Second I wanted Juliette to have a longer andor meaningful discussion of why she didn t want to go by Juliette any I understand why she doesn t I understand Juliette is an old name one that was only given to her doesn t I understand Juliette is an old name one that was only given to her Anderson as a cruel joke But I feel like she deserves to keep the name Juliette because she reclaimed it Anderson labeled her a tragedy but she rose above all her trauma and metamorphosed her pain and fear into love and action in order to better herself her friends and her world She overcame the name and the abuse of the man and the stereotypes that came with it Reverting to Ella I understand is somewhat of a clean slate and shows her heritage as a person of power but it s just not the same person to me If she would have taken time to unpack why she wants to be called Ella instead of literally only just saying it s prettier then I wouldn t be as upset This applies both in Juliette s and Warner s point of view Warner deciding so uickly that he likes the name Ella and he wants to default to that with no transition just felt so off In general I think this relates to the fact that after they got their memories back cough infodumps of flashbacks they did very little to reconcile past with present so it was like their memories never actually blended. Of North America has been an utter disaster When the children of the other world leaders show up on her doorstep she wants nothing than to turn to Warner for support and guidance But he shatters her heart when he reveals that he’s been keeping secrets abo.
