Goodreads Synopsis:

This fourth companion novella to Tahereh Mafi’s New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series is narrated by fan favorite character Kenji Kishimoto!

The explosive revelations in Defy Me have left readers reeling and desperate for answers. This fourth and final novella in the series will bring readers back to the world of the Shatter Me before the final novel installment hits shelves in winter 2020.

And don’t miss Find Me, the gorgeous paperback bind-up that brings together Shadow Me and Reveal Me in print for the first time!


This book has my favourite cover of all the Shatter Me books. I’ve loved all the covers, but this one is my favourite.

Each of the novels ends with a huge cliffhanger. The novellas fill in some of the time in between, from the perspective of a different character. This one is told by Kenji, like the previous novella. He is one of my favourite characters.

The plot of this novella went up and down constantly. There was lots of tension between Kenji and Nazeera. They were friends one minute and enemies the next. It got a little frustrating after a while, because they kept going back and forth. This novella was disappointing because it didn’t move the plot forward very much.

I’m so excited to read the next novel in the Shatter Me series next year! This novella is a good interlude to read before the next book is published.

What to read next:

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer #1) by Michelle Hodkin
