Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days.
The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.
The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war– and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now.
Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.
So, I have spent about two day trying to figure out how to put my feelings about this book into words. But, as I am having no luck, I just going to go with typing down whatever pops into my head!
Okay first off I LOVE Juliette! Just everything about her, from her skepticism to her love, all throughout the book is beautiful. I also love the fact that she struggles with her power, while a lot of people see what she can do as a gift, she view it as a curse and I think that, that shows how great Juliette is as a character!
Another thing about his book was that I didnt completely hate the villain. Yes, while Warren was excessively annoying and quite pushy when it came to his feeling, I didnt hate him for some reason. The whole time I was reading it, I just though of him as product of his environment as a child. Like, his dad was crazy and completely obsessed with power, therefore, Warren is also completely crazy and obsessed with power and has the drive to achieve it at any cost, even if it means manipulating the people around him.
There is so much more that I loved about this book because I literally enjoyed every moment of it and I cannot wait to hear your guy’s thoughts on it also! Now, I must go off to read Fated because my Unravel me book isn’t here yet!
