Juliette’s short tenure as the supreme commander of North America has been an utter disaster. When the children of the other world leaders show up on her doorstep, she wants nothing more than to turn to Warner for support and guidance. But he shatters her heart when he reveals that he’s been keeping secrets about her family and her identity from her—secrets that change everything.
Juliette is devastated, and the darkness that’s always dwelled within her threatens to consume her. An explosive encounter with unexpected visitors might be enough to push her over the edge
I have never really liked Adam. I think I found him nice in the beginning but if I didn’t know about Warnette– I think I wouldn’t have been able to continue the series. Still I enjoyed the pander between him and Nazeera. I like how she told him that what he thought about Juliette’s change was wrong.
I didn’t even know how much I had missed Juliette and Warner until we learned more about their past and they were finally reunited. Can I just get a whole book of these two being happy and badass together? That’s all I ask for. It’s funny how after everything their parents did to them, they thought they were doing what was best for them or the world. I just want to throw all the parents in this series into a fire.
I wanted more scenes between Warner and Kenji after reading Restore Me, so even though he kept interrupting their romantic moments my bromance heart was happy.
I think so far this one was my favorite book of the series. I didn’t love the flashbacks but they didn’t make me want to skip them either. I almost gave the book five stars after all the scenes after the reunion but I didn’t love the whole book, so I decided to give it 4.5 stars instead.
