(Review) Ignite me (Shatter me, #3)

ignite me

With Omega Point destroyed, Juliette doesn’t know if the rebels, her friends, or even Adam are alive. But that won’t keep her from trying to take down The Reestablishment once and for all. Now she must rely on Warner, the handsome commander of Sector 45. The one person she never thought she could trust. The same person who saved her life. He promises to help Juliette master her powers and save their dying world . . . but that’s not all he wants with her.

Aku mau bersorok untuk hubungan Juliette dan Warner di novel ini. Horaaayyy…. Dan Adam, he is really damn asshole. Continue reading “(Review) Ignite me (Shatter me, #3)”

[Review] Unravel Me (Shatter Me, #2

unravel me

It should have taken Juliette a single touch to kill Warner. But his mysterious immunity to her deadly power has left her shaken, wondering why her ultimate defense mechanism failed against the person she most needs protection from.

She and Adam were able to escape Warner’s clutches and join up with a group of rebels, many of whom have powers of their own. Juliette will finally be able to actively fight against The Reestablishment and try to fix her broken world. And perhaps these new allies can help her shed light on the secret behind Adam’s—and Warner’s—immunity to her killer skin.

[Review] Shatter Me

 

shatter me

I have a curse
I have a gift

I am a monster
I’m more than human

My touch is lethal
My touch is power

I am their weapon
I will fight back

Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days.

The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.

The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war – and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now.

Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior. Continue reading “[Review] Shatter Me”

[Review] The Scorch Trial + The Death Cure by James Dashner

The Schorch Trial

Burned and baked, the earth is a wasteland, its people drive mad by an infection known as the Flare.

Instead of freedom, Thomas must face another trial. He must cross the Scorch to once again save himself and his friends…. Continue reading “[Review] The Scorch Trial + The Death Cure by James Dashner”

[Review] The Last Star

the last star

Makhluk Lain itu musuh kita. Kitalah musuh kita.

Mereka ada di bawah ini, di atas sana, di mana-mana.

Mereka menginginkan Bumi, mereka menginginkan kita menempatinya.

Mereka datang untuk memusnahkan kita,

Mereka datang untuk menyelamatkan kita.

Namun di balik teka-teki ini ada satu kebenaran:

Cassie dikhianati. Begitu juga Zombie. Ringer. Nugget.

Dan 7,5 miliar manusia yang tadinya hidup di planet kita.

Mula-mula dikhianati oleh makhluk lain, sekarang oleh sesamanya.

Pada hari-hari terakhir, para penghuni Bumi yang tersisa harus memutuskan

Apa yang lebih penting: menyelematkan diri sendiri….

Atau menyelamatkan apa yang menjadikan kita manusia. Continue reading “[Review] The Last Star”

[Review] Allegiant

allegiant

Kota sudah dikuasai oleh para Factionless. Apakah hidup tanpa faksi menjadi lebih baik daripada dengan faksi? Gejolak, konflik, pemberontakan masih saja terus berlanjut.

Dan  selama ini, tempat di mana Tris tinggal dikelilingi oleh sebuah pagar yang dijaga oleh para Dauntless. Beberapa anggota Allegiant dikirim untuk keluar dari pagar perbatasan. Siapa saja anggotanya? Tobias dan Tris (jelas, karena mereka merupakan pasangan yang sama-sama berjiwa pemberontak), Christina, Cara, Uriah, Peter, Caleb. Ternyata, dunia di luar pagar perbatasan merupakan tempat  yang lebih modern dan maju, sebutlah tempat itu Amerika. Dan kota tempat Tris tinggal sebelunya bernama  Chicago. Pemerintah Amerikalah yang menciptakan sistem faksi di Chicago dan kota-kota lain. Continue reading “[Review] Allegiant”
