In this electrifying sixty-page companion novella to the New York Timesbestselling Shatter Me series, discover the fate of the Omega Point rebels as they go up against The Reestablishment. Set during and soon after the final moments of Unravel Me, Fracture Me is told from Adam's perspective.
As Omega Point prepares to launch an all-out assault on The Reestablishment soldiers stationed in Sector 45, Adam's focus couldn't be further from the upcoming battle. He's reeling from his breakup with Juliette, scared for his best friend's life, and as concerned as ever for his brother James's safety. And just as Adam begins to wonder if this life is really for him, the alarms sound. It's time for war.
On the battlefield, it seems like the odds are in their favor—but taking down Warner, Adam's newly discovered half brother, won't be that easy. The Reestablishment can't tolerate a rebellion, and they'll do anything to crush the resistance . . . including killing everyone Adam has ever cared about.
Fracture Me sets the stage for Ignite Me, the explosive finale in Tahereh Mafi's epic dystopian series. It's a novella not to be missed by fans who crave action-packed stories with tantalizing romance like Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Legend by Marie Lu.
Oh boy, how do I wrap my head around this novella?

For those of you who do not know, I am a firm believer in Team Adam. I feel like their love is more real whereas with Warner it is more convenient and fleeting for Juliette and an obsession for Warner. I've been dying to finally get inside the head of Adam with the hopes this novella would give me a little more faith in what I can only dream of happening in Ignite Me.
I truly feel as though Adam got the short end of the stick as far as the novellas for this series go. Warner's POV in Destroy Me gave us something, an inside knowledge to the villain of the book, allowing us a chance to connect with him before moving on, to see where he comes from. There was none of that for Adam. Instead I felt like we just got a scene from the war from another perspective, and most of it was what we already saw. There was nothing to gain and in fact, I found myself skimming this part. There were no moments to really understand Adam. All I got from it was how incredibly amazing his love for his brother James is. And truly that bit made my heart melt, but at the expense of Juliette? That's what it felt like to me. Like the author has made it so he must choose between them and I am so not cool with this direction.
I'm really not that big of a fan of novellas in the first place. I despise when I feel like I HAVE to read them to continue in a series. And even though I have those thoughts I still enjoyed Destroy Me. Fracture Me clocks in at about 53 pages with a sneak peek at Ignite Me at the end. Is that worth the $2.99 I paid for it? Eh, not really.
And again, as a Team Adam supporter, I am hugely disappointed and it kills me that this wasn't at all what I wanted. And now I have more fears for the conclusion, Ignite Me.
Nevertheless, I am still holding on to hope somehow for an Adam and Juliette reunion.
I'm not ready to give up on us.
