From Goodreads:
In this electrifying sixty-page companion novella to the New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series, discover the fate of the Omega Point rebels as they go up against The Reestablishment. Set during and soon after the final moments of Unravel Me, Fracture Me is told from Adam's perspective.

As Omega Point prepares to launch an all-out assault on The Reestablishment soldiers stationed in Sector 45, Adam's focus couldn't be further from the upcoming battle. He's reeling from his breakup with Juliette, scared for his best friend's life, and as concerned as ever for his brother James's safety. And just as Adam begins to wonder if this life is really for him, the alarms sound. It's time for war.

On the battlefield, it seems like the odds are in their favor—but taking down Warner, Adam's newly discovered half brother, won't be that easy. The Reestablishment can't tolerate a rebellion, and they'll do anything to crush the resistance . . . including killing everyone Adam has ever cared about.

Fracture Me sets the stage for Ignite Me, the explosive finale in Tahereh Mafi's epic dystopian series. It's a novella not to be missed by fans who crave action-packed stories with tantalizing romance like Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Legend by Marie Lu.

As soon as I heard about Fracture Me I couldn't wait to read it. I am such a huge fan of dystopia series and this is one of my favourites. When I heard that this was told from Adam's perspective I was so beyond excited about it. I am totally Team Adam and I hated Warner right from the beginning and I still do. Because of this I couldn't wait to read from Adam's POV... but honestly I'm a little bit disappointed in it.

I loved seeing things from Adam's point of view so I am so glad we got this novella so that we finally saw Adam's feelings... however I just don't think this novella was necessary for the storyline at all. When we got Destroy Me although I didn't love that it was necessary as we got the inside look at Warner and why he acts the way that he does. It gave more understanding to his actions within the main books. With this one I just didn't see how it was necessary. It just retold some key points from Adam's POV. It didn't really add anything to the storyline and this makes me very sad.

I liked Fracture Me but I certainly didn't love it and don't really see the point in it. I love Adam and I always will and I'm happy we got to see inside his head but I am mainly disappointed with this novella. It wasn't necessary, it didn't add anything to the story and to me it seemed kind of pointless.

  1. I think most are disappointed in this novella. For me, I think it was necessary, only to show how Adam truly is, as opposed to seeing him only through Juliette's eyes. He's very different when you get in his brain, as was Warner in his novella. Mostly I was annoyed with how blaze he was in this novella. I think I gave it a 3, but I can't remember.
