Review: Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi

Perfect for the fans of Shatter Me who are desperately awaiting the release of Unravel Me, this novella-length digital original will bridge the gap between these two novels from the perspective of the villain we all love to hate, Warner, the ruthless leader of Sector 45.

In Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me, Juliette escaped from The Reestablishment by seducing Warner—and then putting a bullet in his shoulder. But as she’ll learn in Destroy Me, Warner is not that easy to get rid of. . .

Back at the base and recovering from his near-fatal wound, Warner must do everything in his power to keep his soldiers in check and suppress any mention of a rebellion in the sector. Still as obsessed with Juliette as ever, his first priority is to find her, bring her back, and dispose of Adam and Kenji, the two traitors who helped her escape. But when Warner’s father, The Supreme Commander of The Reestablishment, arrives to correct his son’s mistakes, it’s clear that he has much different plans for Juliette. Plans Warner simply cannot allow.

Set after Shatter Me and before its forthcoming sequel, Unravel Me, Destroy Me is a novella told from the perspective of Warner, the ruthless leader of Sector 45.
I read and reviewed Shatter Me last year and absolutely loved it. I remember wishing that I knew more about the evil man named Warner. Well Tahereh Mafi listened to my wishes, and wrote Destroy Me, a novella in the point of view of Warner! Destroy Me really is perfect for the fans and I thoroughly enjoyed getting into the head of this evil mastermind, who actually isn’t that evil after all.

Destroy Me picks up right after Juliette and Adam escaped and shot Warner in the arm. We see how the escape has affected Warner as a leader, as well as a man in love. We also meet Warner’s dad, and wow, what a douche! It was hard not to feel sympathy for Warner when he was raised by a man like that.

Destroy Me is the perfect way to get me excited to read Unravel Me. I even want to go back and reread Shatter Me


  1. I loved this! I cannot wait for "Unravel Me!" This series is SO amazing! :) Great post. Xx.

  2. Glad that this was good! I'll have to check it out, mostly because I am curious to learn more about Warner.

  3. I read Shatter Me and wasn't a huge fan, but I was really intrigued by Warner, so this is a "must read" for me. So glad you liked it! Great review, friend.

    Wish they would actually publish this in physical form because I think the cover is pretty! :-)
