⚠️ Spoilers ahead ⚠️
Ok, where to begin?!
Generally speaking, when a series does well and then is extended years later, the result is disappointing. This book (and the Restore Me series in general) is a great example of this rule. The ending of Ignite Me #3 should of been tidier, and then the series should of been finished. Finito. Done, and left alone!
When we learnt that Anderson was still alive, I was not even shocked. To quote Kenji, "I sigh[ed] so hard I nearly hurt myself." I saw it coming a mile away. His death was so rushed and messy, that I foresaw his resurrection at the moment of his death! So when Warner/Aaron (whatever you want to call him. I don't even know at this point) killed him again, in yet another unrealistic, messy plot twist, I was done.
All of the "resolutions" to earlier plot twists - from the aforementioned resurrection to the cliched amnesia - were farfetched and ridiculous. I took offence to the following sentence during a bout of said amnesia inducing brain washing; "..but I only lie there, a perfect vegetable, as she strips me down." I accept that the word may not of been used in the context in which I read it, but the connotations of the word 'vegetable' are well known.
One aspect that I did like was the play on Juliette's (or Ella's... Honestly, are any of the characters going to have the same name at the end of this series?!) name.
"'That girl was sentenced to death,' he says viciously, 'the moment I named her Juliette.'"
However, if Mafi is to be true to the storyline of Shakespeare's Juliet, then surely the ending is a foretold conclusion?
"'This is Juliette,' Mr. Anderson says, and looks me over. 'Tragic'-he sighs-'just like her namesake.'"
I really didn't expect to fall in love with this series of books and the characters as much as I have and Defy Me only added to that. I love that even when you think you know where Tahereh is taking the story she complete shocks and surprises you with the direction she does go in.
Defy Me gives you more. More background. More drama. More hope. More Ella. More Kenji. More.
