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.
Warner also tried very hard to keep up a facade, that way his soldiers know to fear him and therefore won't challenge his authority. He learned at an early age that he needed to erect walls...
"My closet is separated into various sections. Shirts, ties, slacks, blazers and boots. Socks, gloves, scarves and boots. Everything is arranged by color, then shades within each color."
"I'm building walls in my mind again. Blocks of concrete. Empty room and open space."In Shatter Me, Warner talks Juliette to a gathering with his soldiers where he shoots dead one of his treacherous men. We are able to hear the back story about why he made that decision and he is definitely not the horrible person I thought he was.
The more he reads Juliette's journey and he's unable to find her, the more he's falling for her in his mind.
"I almost forget that she still hates me, despite how hard I've fallen for her. And I've fallen. So hard. I've hit the ground."
"Love is a heartless bastard. I'm driving myself insane."Poor Warner! His father has come and on top of loosing Juliette and searching for her and recovering from his wound. His father is definitely the sadistic bastard that I thought he was and I feel so bad for Warner growing up with him like that.
This book has definitely started a love triangle and I can't wait for Unravel Me to see how this pans out.
