Overview

Set after Tahereh Mafi's Shatter Me and before Unravel Me, the spellbinding sequel, Destroy Me is a novella told from the perspective of Warner, the ruthless leader of Sector 45.

In 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.

    Insightful

    I appreciate that we get to view scenes from Warner's perspective, and I must admit that I'm liking Warner more. I realize he's murdered people, but this novella provides the opportunity to glimpse in his life and childhood. He has good intentions for Juliette, and we learn that he truly cares for her. This is evident in his reaction to her journal entries. Warner finds her notebook and learns of Juliette's relationship with her parents, how others have mistreated her, and her experiences when her parents released her to the government (and sent to the asylum). He truly aches for her pain and fear.
    If he were to leave his current position and involvement with the reestablishment, Juliette might be able to view him differently. I mean, I like Adam, but their relationship just began, and it was very rushed. We'll have to see what happens on the second book. I'm positive Warner will defy his Father's order to save Juliette.

    Not a sequel

    I loved Shatter Me, and this was well-written but it was such a tease! It's only about 80 pages long and from Warner's perspective so don't buy it expecting a sequel. There was no description when I bought it so I didn't know that it was only a novella. I had a few issues with it. First, Warner's name is no where in the story and it had been so long since I had read the first one that I couldn't remember it so I actually had to look it up. Second, I get that she's trying to set something up for the next book, but no matter crappy his life was I just can't find him sympsthetic enough to think he deserves even a novella devoted to his thoughts. I would have prefered to have this as the first part in the next book. It only took me about 2 hours to read so it just wasn't worth it to me.

    This book was so good. I thought Warner was a bad guy but he really is not. We see who Warner really is broken and has lived in fear of his father his whole life. His dad is the true monster. After reading this I really want warner to get a happy ending

    Being a huge fan of Shatter Me, I was very excited to start this

    Being a huge fan of Shatter Me, I was very excited to start this short novella, Destroy Me. The best part is that, it's told from Warner's point of view! While reading Shatter Me, I definitely had mixed feelings about Warner. I didn't know whether to like him, or whether to hate him. He was just one of those characters where you end up having a love/hate relationship with! Destroy Me starts off from a certain point in Shatter Me, but what I really loved is that we get to hear what Warner thinks about whatever happens, instead of Juliett. I think this novella really got me to connect with Warner much more, and know him as a character. I don't think i'd ever understand Warner if I've never read this book, and I'm so glad I did. I think I judged Warner, without actually knowing the feelings he has inside. That's why I'm going to thank God that I read this book, because I no longer have a love/hate relationship with Warner, but a LOVE LOVE relationship! Despite this book being short, there were also moments where it almost broke my heart. Y'all probably know how Tahereh Mafi writes, but if you don't, its so, oh God beautiful. Anyways, I cannot wait to open the pages of Unravel Me, and let Tahereh break my heart once again!

    Great insight from Warner!

    I gave this 4 stars because it felt unfinished. I would love to know his thoughts from ****** spoiler from first book****** when he found them and kissed her. He finally got what he dreamt about.

    I also hope there is more between them, he needs to tell her how he feels. I love adam and j together but the triangle leaves us guessing.

    This is my favorite book trilogy so far.! Minus fifty shades.

         So I should have started this one before I read Unravel Me,

         So I should have started this one before I read Unravel Me, but I only realized that it was addition that gave important insight when I was 2/3 of the way through Unravel Me. But I guess better late than never. So I stopped Unravel Me, and started Destroy Me.
         Mafi is as amazing story teller in this on e
         At first, Warren's voice seemed to clinical and detached, but I told myself, he's just been shot. If there is ever a time... But I kept going because I wanted to see what was so great about Team Warner. And did I find out. There is so much in his past that makes him act the way he does, and it is almost as sad as Juliette's background. His voice sounds that way because that is the way his father taught him to be. He has built up walls within himself in order to lead the way he does.  
         But then you find out even more about his motivations, and my heart just wanted to melt. He did so many things that I thought was just downright evil, but when I discover the cause, I have to rewrite everything and question it all through Juliette's eyes. 
         The love he has for her, just wow. He tries all of the time to talk himself out of it, and it is sad. I still adore Adam, and I know that one of the two is going to have to get hurt, and that makes me sooo torn. Ms. Mafi definitely knows how to write a character so that they make me feel for them and connect with them. 
     
    Bottom line: Great novella that gives great insight into Warner.

    You want Warner's side of the story! Well this is it! This is

    You want Warner's side of the story! Well this is it! This is from Warner's POV, after Juliette escaped with Adam from Sector 45. Being in Warner's head was an amazing! It was interesting to see how Warner actually See's things and why he does the crazy things he does. Their was actually times where I felt sorry for Warner! Yeah, I NEVER seen that coming either! But Warner seems different after Juliette escaped.

    So in this short in-between story we follow Warner through trying to pick up the pieces left after Juliette escaped. He has so much cleaning up to do amongst his people. People want to know what's going on, they want answers! The Reestablishment is worried of an uprising and it Warner's job to squish that before it starts. And not only that but Warner's father, The Supreme Commander of the Reestablishment has come back to clean up his son's mess with Juliette, and he is not happy about it!

    In between of doing all that Warner is still searching for Juliette and has no clue where she has gone. It's like she just droped of the face of the earth...

    So Warner has to pick the pieces of the mess that Juliette caused while escaping, and calm down the citizens before everything gets out of control! Oh, and did I mention Warner's having to do all that while going insane! He's desperately missing Juliette! He's having visions/dreams of her. Some are so bad it's hard to tell which are real and which aren't!

    Warner didn't realized how much Juliette was able to chipped away the ice around his heart, and allowed him to feel again. He is in love with Juliette, and he will stop at nothing to have her in his arms forever! BUT theirs one problem! Warner's father, The Supreme Commander of the Reestablishment wants her back also! But he wants her Dead! So what's Warner to do when the women he loves is going to be killed by the man he's supose to love, his father! The head boss over their "New" Government! Well your guess is as good as mine, will have to read the next book "Unravel Me" to find out!

    I really enjoyed this book very much! I think it was important to the series to read Warner's POV and see what was going on in his head! It allowed us to understand a lot of the things that were left unsaid in "Shatter Me". Hearing how Warner feels about Juliette and the other things going on in his world allows us to see what he's really like inside. I was SHOCKED to find out that I may actually like Warner. It may only be a tiny bit, but Warner is not all bad as he seems! Gosh, I never thought I would be saying that about him because I HATED him in "Shatter Me"! But in this book Warner's different, and I think it has a lot to do with loving Juliette!

    This is just a must read for all the "Shatter Me" fans! I loved it! Definitely worth 5 stars and some...!

    So, Warner isn't all evil, huh?

    This might be brief, because to say a lot is to reveal a lot.

    I'll say this much - Warner is a lot more complicated than I imagined him to be.

    He's still not a good guy, overall. He still hates people, is mentally unstable, will kill if he has to, and to say he has daddy issues is like saying that a cactus is not easy to handle because it has thorns. Basically, duh!

    I never expected him to be an easy read. But I just didn't expect that I would actually feel really bad about what he's become and why?

    The thing is, he knows he's bad. He knows he's screwed up. But he does it anyway for reasons you find in the book.

    So, if you're waiting for Unravel Me to come out and you haven't bothered to read this, I highly recommend you do. These .5 digital reads are quite integral to the series whenever the author writes one. It fleshes out characters that you often don't get to really learn about from the novel, for whatever reason.

    I hate to admit, but I think I understand now why some fans are actually fascinated with Warner.

    Although, I believe the author actually wants you to care for him, or at lease sympathize, for all is not what is seems, as Adam indicated in his note to Juliette.

    great short

    This short novella is told in Warner's POV. He's the type of guy you would love to hate but when I read this, it chipped away some hate I felt towards him. It gives you a glimpse into his mind and why he became who he is.

    This has been the best intermittent book I've read! It didn't cover just one scene, it was a complete point of view from Warren. I normally feel cheated when I buy these types of books, but I don't regret one penny I spent on this one! It was beautifully written and really lets you look into Warren's mind and heart. I actually enjoyed this just as much as I did the first book, Shatter Me! I have to admit I have a soft spot for Warren now that I didn't before. This guy might just have a heart after all!!! I can't wait to see what is coming next!!
