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.

My heart is shattered, my bones are fractured, this novella broke my feelings and brought out a not-so-nice side of me. I was expecting to be blown away by this novella, I was expecting a lot of feelings and emotions, something for me to die of feels but I was completely let down. If I felt something it was annoyance and anger.

Adam is definitely not the Adam that we have seen through Juliette’s eyes. In Fracture Me, Adam was annoying. I kept rolling my eyes every time that he opened his mouth. I did not feel anything for him. I did not feel the love for Juliette that he had expressed before. He was so concentrated in his brother. Ok, don't get me wrong, I love the relationship between Adam and James, but is it enough to write a novella about? If so, I found the tagline -”I will not lose her”- very misleading. Adam could have cared less about Juliette here. He kept treating her like a child.

This novella was painful for the true Team Adam folks, those that really know Adam. He had a lot of issues here and I think that he needs to put his big boy boxers on and deal with it. I still like to believe that this is not the Adam that I once met in Shatter Me.

I am going to hang on to my little tiny thread of hope that my real Adam will come back in Ignite Me. For now enjoy your little victory Team Warner people.


  1. Awww, I'm sorry you were let down by this one! I just finished it myself and Adam was so whiny to me in Unravel Me that I actually liked that this novella shifted him away from Juliette. Don't get me wrong, I definitely understand your pain. I miss warrior Adam from Shatter Me and probably wouldn't be Team Warner if not for his (ironically) Romeo-esque love for Juliette in Unravel Me. I have not started Ignite Me yet, but I do hope the love triangle isn't as predictable as Adam giving up. I may be Team Warner, but I love the drama of the triangle. ;) haha! Great review! xoxo!
