I finished reading Defy Me by Tahereh Mafi. It is the fifth book of the Shatter Me book series. Yes, I have read the other books in the book series.
Big Warning: there is a little bit of violence.
In this book, Everyone saw Juliette kill thousands of people because of her powers after she announce she was the supreme commander of America. Kenji was right there as it happened and saw Juliette fall, but then he was suddenly not beside her, and Juliette is gone. She was kidnapped and her killing people was an illusion. Meanwhile, Juliette and Warner are having painful memories of being together and apart. Juliette learns from her memories of her parents and her real name which is Ella. She remembers her sister too. Her parents are the ones who kidnap her and Warner. They are trying to release Ella’s memories again, but it does no good. She remembers everything anyway. She hears a faint voice telling her to escape and the word dying. She does escape and finds her sister and learns that her sister was giving everyone their memories back and the real reason their parents want to keep them alive. Ella kills her mother. Meanwhile, at the base, everyone learns about Ella through Nazeera. They hitch a plan to help Ella and Warner to escape. They do and Ella tells them that they need to kill her sister because her sister is barely alive anyway.
Here is a song that fits the book series: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49tpIMDy9BE
I loved this book. I plan on reading the rest of the books in this book series soon. Now I’m read The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien.
