Juliette Ferrars thought she’d won. She took over Sector 45, was named the new Supreme Commander, and now has Warner by her side. But she’s still the girl with the ability to kill with a single touch—and now she’s got the whole world in the palm of her hand. When tragedy hits, who will she become? Will she be able to control the power she wields and use it for good?
I was about to give up on this book. I seriously was. While I didn’t find the book particularly interesting and I for the first time since reading books despised the dual point of view.
Even though I wasn’t drawn to the Restore me as I as the previous three books, I found myself right back in sector 45 as if I had never left. And that is purely what kept pushing me through the book.
Restore me really picked up for me about 60% in. And if I hadn’t already been 4 books in (3 novels and a collection of short) I probably would have set the hook aside on my to finish pile. I’m pleased that I tuck it through.
I praise Mafi for returning to us back to the world in which Juliette is learning to navigate. I found the curvature of the story, focusing much more on the romance department to be a tad odd. I guess with the explosive ending on Ignite me, I kind of expected it to continue through. It did not. I wasn’t to please with that. While romance was bumped up action seemed to be knocked down. Bummer for me, but maybe not for everyone.
I did find that I miss the presence on Adam greatly. I guess, as much I admire the relationship between Warren and Juliette, I’m still way team Adam. So I did miss his presence. But he was thrown into the mix sporadically in moment. But they almost felt as though they were an added thought to appease us Team Adam.
Ultimately I will continue this series as Mafi has once again left me hanging in suspense with the last 30 or so pages. Truly one of the most astonishing endings with the biggest of twist.
