The girl with the power to kill with a single touch now has the world in the palm of her hand.
Juliette and Warner's story continues in the electrifying fourth installment of Tahereh Mafi's New York Times best-selling Shatter Me series.
Juliette Ferrars thought she'd won. She took over Sector 45, was named the new Supreme Commander of North America, and now has Warner by her side. But when tragedy strikes, she must confront the darkness that dwells both around and inside her.
Who will she become in the face of adversity? Will she be able to control the power she wields and use it for good?
Ok, I can gladly say I love Warner now. There was sp much that happened in this book, I feel like I was just on a rollercoaster. Can't wait for the next book to come out.

I submitted a review on amazon but also wanted to review here as well because of the narration. Kate Simses - you are awesome! I generally can’t stand female narrators but you do a phenomenal job - and I have listened to the first three books like 50+ times.
James Fouhey - I think you did and awesome job as well - especially since I was a bit skeptical in the beginning since I had listened to Kate’s version of Warner’s voice so many times before. Still, I think you were a perfect choice for the intense but measured voice indicative of Warner. Great job!

This review contains spoilers for the first 3 books of the Shatter Me series, but no spoilers for Restore Me.
Y’all. I feel like I have been waiting for this book for a lifetime. Shatter Me was one of the first books I read after about a 5 year reading slump. I completely devoured the 3 book series in a matter of days, but like other fans, felt like the story was missing something. The ending just wasn’t quite right and felt rushed, so when I heard Mafi was releasing THREE MORE BOOKS I fan-girl screamed. I was SO excited. Then I was nervous. What if the books don’t resonate with me like they did when I first read them? What if immersing myself back into Sector 45 and the Reestablishment ruins the previous love I had for this series? And most important of all: WHAT IF JULIETTE AND WARNER AREN’T ENDGAME?!
I mean, it’s not like Mafi hasn’t switched up love interests before. My gamut of emotions and fears aside, of course I was going to read this book and I am so glad I did. There were a lot of critiques of Ignite Me, mainly how Adam’s character changed so quickly and how everything was wrapped up in a neat little bow at the end. I feel like Mafi did an excellent job addressing these issues. You get insight into Adam’s motives and character progression that show you where he was coming from in acting like a complete d**k the entire third book. Juliette dealing with the aftermath of becoming Supreme Commander is a main focus this book, and it provided a lot of world building info we were missing in the first three books finally giving some background info about how the reestablishment came to be. Restore Me actually only takes place over a period of a few days, but it is full of action and character development (particularly Warner).
Let’s talk about Warner: first of all, he is even better in this book. Restore Me is told in both Juliette and Warner’s POV so you get a deep look into Warner’s tortured mind. Warner suffers from PTSD (from his abusive father) and anxiety with the presence of panic attacks. Mental health representation is so important and I thought Mafi did a wonderful job addressing this particular struggle. I really liked being able to be inside both Warner and Juliette’s mind, but I am hoping this isn’t foreshadowing a death (as Allegiant did with having a dual POV with Four and Tris).
Overall, I really loved the book. Juliette still annoys me, but not enough to keep me away from reading the rest of the series.
Oh, and THAT ENDING THOUGH!!!!!
At first I wasn’t very sure where she was going with this book, now, I’m dying for the one!
so so amazing. I loved the performance was very entertaining. I loved all of the other books so I knew I would be a huge fan of this. would highly recommend this series.
Everything changes with this book, in the sense that the plot gets even more amazingly complicated. As the previous book were, Restore Me is very character driven. I can't help but get swept up with their emotions. The best part of the book is Aaron's POV. It's a great balance to the story. There's isn't much action until the laat scene, but there is so much more world building and character growth in its place
At the forefront of fhe story is the romance. Warner and Julliette are two very broken people who fell in love during dark times. Their journey in love is beautiful, and heart wrenching at times. As usual, Kenji is terrific and brings a smile to my face every time he has something to say.
A great addition to the series. It includes issues like anxiety, dealing with past abuse, and trans. Tehadah is creating a beautiful series centerned on characters who are flawed, meaningful, and overcoming the worst. It's something I don't see very often in YA novels.
Let me start off with I just started this series last week. I am so shocked and confused. I don't want my review to have spoiler alerts so I will not go into details. All I can say is I am so torn with emotions... I can't decide if I wish I would have stoped after Ignite Me or if I am excited for the possibility of still being able to hope for the happy ending I had in mind. I love Warner and Juliet together. He just has this unapologetic love and desire for her and I believe he really does love her.
Spoiler Alert question........
I can't help but wonder when Adam and Warner were talking about Juliet how we don't know what Adams response was at the end of the conversation.... I wonder if Adam will have a strong role in the next book.
Wow is all I can say.
o short 😣 i need more info...is she restored..
so many questions... whens the next book
Eye kant wif da wurdz.
Wha....bu....I...so...HOW? I mean.....OMG....
TWELVE HOURS LATER (though I don't remember anything that happened across that time period, due to shock and an epic book hangover):
So happy this YA Dystopian/Sci-Fi series is having an amazing rebirth, but I'm equally traumatized that I have to wait at least a year to find out what comes next.
And Kenji. All my heart eyes for that boy.
