Shadow Me by Tahereh Mafi: Review

Fan favorite character Kenji Kishimoto narrates this gripping companion novella to Tahereh Mafi’s New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series, set during the explosive events in Restore Me!

Juliette is still reeling from Warner’s betrayal, and Kenji is trying to balance his friendship with her with his responsibilities as a leader of the resistance against the Reestablishment. Things get even more interesting when an unexpected person from Omega Point’s past surfaces.

The ending of Restore Me left readers gasping, and this novella full of Kenji’s signature sass and big heart is the perfect story to tide fans over until Defy Me, the shocking fifth book in the Shatter Me series.

In order to understand this book and review you must first read the other books on the series. It starts with Shatter me, Destroy me, Unravel me, Fracture me, Ignite me, and Restore me. This novella Shadow me fallows in the footsteps of Restore me, telling us exactly how things happen in Kenji’s words. It started right the day after they find Juliette drunk in her room. Kenji goes into detail on how hard it was for him to see Juliette like this and even worst be present when Warner had a meltdown. for Kenji this was very unusual since Warren has always been so strong. From there it talks about his new found feelings towards Nazeera, a girl sent by the Reestablishment to keep an eye on Juliette. He should hate her but instead he was falling hard for her. There was something different about this girl, she even saved Juliette’s life and killed her attacker. But still Kenji couldn’t deny that there was something this girl was hiding, something big. 

They all were supposed to attend the Symposium that day but Kenji had a bad feeling about it. While in there Juliette was trying to speak to over 600 members of the Reestablishment. Suddenly things turn out deadly. Bodies falling everywhere and Kenji is trying to save his friends as well as himself. 

This novella is sure to grab a hold of your heart and squeeze hard. Its short but filled with so much emotions. I give 5 out of 5 starts.
