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


I really am not much of a fan of Shatter Me. It honestly came to my mind that I should just let go of the book and left it unfinished but then I was so intrigued about Warner that I kept on hanging until the end of the 1st book. When I found out that he’ll have a novella that is all about him and is in his POV, I freaked out.

You might think Warner is just only a psychotic and evil villain who’s downright obsessed with Juliette and why would you even bother to read a novella about him but let me tell you this, don’t judge a character base on the 1st book. Give Warner a chance, you don’t know, you might like him by the end of this novella.

Tahereh Mafi was able to write a novella so good, so sad and so overwhelming. If in the first book I fell in love with Warner, in Destroy Me, I was completely and utterly bewitched by him. Destroy Me is so freakingly awesome that it’ll left you wanting for more—more of Warner, more information about his past and more of his “other side”. I urge everyone to read this novella. It’s definitely worth reading for!

P.S. Dear Tahereh Mafi, you need to write a LOT of scenes of Warner. And less of Adam, please.
