Synopsis: No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal, but The Reestablishment has plans for her. Plans to use her as a weapon. But Juliette has plans of her own. After a lifetime without freedom, she’s finally discovering a strength to fight back for the very first time—and to find a future with the one boy she thought she’d lost forever.
I’d heard of this book, and everyone seemed to like it, so when I saw it at the library, I decided to pick it up.
And I loved it. Loved it.
The writing was intriguing, and very easy to get into without being childish. I finished it in two days.
I liked Juliette. In the beginning, she kinda reminded me of Gollum. Now hold on – I don’t mean in how she looked or acted. I mean in the way she speaks. That very ‘bordering-on-insane’ kind of ramble. But I liked her personality and spark.
The supporting characters were good as well – like Adam and Kenji – and I liked Warner. I don’t like him with Juliette, but I like him as a character. He’s very…understandable, I suppose. As a villain, he’s very unique.
The ending came way too soon! (I say that from a Fangirl point of view, so not in a bad way). I can’t wait until the hardcover box set comes out and I can have all of these books on my shelf!
