The story:

Perfect for the fans of Shatter Me who are desperately awaiting the release of Unravel Me, this novella-length digital original will bridge the gap between these two novels from the perspective of the villain we all love to hate, Warner, the ruthless leader of Sector 45.

In Tahereh Mafi’s 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.

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. ( Taken from Goodreads )

The view of a book addict:

I loved Shatter me and when I found out that there would be a book about Warner I couldn’t wait to read it. But just like a lot of us I had a lot of other books waiting so it took me some time to start reading this.

I really liked to read more about Warner and what his motives are, although I’m not even sure what they are after reading this novella. The ending was so sudden that I still have a feeling that wasn’t all of his story, but maybe I’ll meet him in Unravel me again and his story will pick up there.

It’s very interesting to get to know other characters from a series more, they make you understand the character and his motives more.

The verdict of a book addict:

A great novella, I’m glad I’ve read it before I started reading Unravel me.
