Juliette Ferrars thought she'd won. She took over Sector 45, was named the new Supreme Commander, and now has Warner by her side. But she's still the girl with the ability to kill with a single touch—and now she's got the whole world in the palm of her hand. When tragedy hits, who will she become? Will she be able to control the power she wields and use it for good? 

My Rating: ★★★★
“I cannot let the broken girl inside of me inhale all that I've become. I cannot revert back to another version of myself. I will not shatter, not again, in the wake of an emotional earthquake.”
Restore Me is the fourth installment in the Shatter Me series. This book broke my heart into a million pieces, it was so emotional and after reading Shadow Me, the companion novella told from Kenji’s POV I am completely stunned. What the hell happened at the end???

The action takes place 16 days after the events in Ignite Me and it’s told from dual POV. I was so excited to experience more of Warner's inner thoughts. Seeing his emotional struggles, fears and hopes made me fall in love with him even more.

Juliette is now the new Supreme Commander of North America and she’s set on bringing down all the corrupt leaders of the Reestablishment. But things aren’t as easy as she thought. Secrets come to light, secrets that turn her world upside down and make her doubt everything and everyone around her. I felt like her character development spiraled a bit out of control. She seems lost and terrified because of the responsibilities she’s taken upon herself but at the same time her personality suffers a major transformation, something lets loose inside her mind.

I was intrigued by the world-building. There are a lot more details revealed about the Reestablishment and a lot of political talks. The children of the leaders are introduced into the plot, and we get a glimpse into Warner’s past and his relationship with them. I loved Nazeera ( she is a total badass and it was so awesome to watch her interact with Kenji) and hated Lena (she was utterly annoying and such a brat). I wished there were more scenes with Adam, James and the rest of the characters from the last three books. Apart from Castle and Kenji, they are mentioned only briefly.

There were some mindblowing revelations and unexpected twists throughout the storyline and my fascination with this series has grown even more. Tahereh Mafi’s writing style is a bit different than the previous books. There was a lot of drama and miscommunication between Warner and Juliette and I wanted them to work through their issues and just get over it because they love each other so much and I couldn’t stand to see them suffering.

The ending left me flabbergasted. I couldn’t quite grasp what was happening, I held my breath on the last few pages. I’m diving right into the next book because I need answers so badly...
