Description

I left Kenji for last because he’s just the best supporting character ever. All I remembered from him is that I loved him, and now my love for him has only grown stronger. I love how supportive of Juliette he was, and he finally got some much needed bonding time with Warner. I had to laugh so much at their interactions, even when things were overall dramatic, but he’s just too fun not to love. A Very Large Expanse of Sea reads like a beautiful heart – one that shines and aches and yearns, and above all else, one that loves fiercely against all odds. Years from now, you will remember exactly where you were and what you were doing when you experienced this. A transcendent story about truth, love and finding joy.' – Marie Lu, New York Times bestselling author of the Legend series.' I will say I am a cis person and I don’t want to overstep my boundaries, but this book is just too new at the point in which I’m reviewing it and I haven’t been able to find an ownvoices trans reviewer talk about this. If you find one please send it my way.

Kenji wakes up in a plane. Nazeera and Castle are there. He asks what is happening. Nazeera tells them they’re in Oceania to save Juliette/Ella. The same can be said of Find Me. It contains both Shadow Me and Reveal Me (also listed separately above), the two later novellas. Is Shatter Me Spicy? Defy Me by Tahereh Mafi is a book that is both emotionally resonant and intellectually engaging. It excels in its exploration of complex themes, such as identity, love, betrayal, and resistance, and provides readers with well-developed and relatable characters. Mafi's poetic writing style adds depth to the emotional landscapes of the characters, creating an intimate and immersive reading experience. I’m shaking my head, my heart racing now, pounding in my ears. “No, Ella, you don’t understand— I think—” It hits me with a painful force, the reminder. Of just how much I love her. God, I love all of her. Her impossibilities, her exasperations. I love how gentle she is with me when we’re alone. How soft and kind she can be in our quiet moments. How she never hesitates to defend me.

how did Defy Me end?

Ella and Emmaline Sommers. Two girls who have been through too much. Juliette finds her sisters at her parents’ compound, floating in a vat, experimented on so heavily that she no longer appears humanoid—her powers have grown too strong for her body. Emmaline frees Juliette from the power-suppressing manacles she’s been and begs for Juliette to kill her. Juliette can’t do it. She does do something for Emmaline though. She rips their mother’s heart out (!!!!) and promises to return for Emmaline. Kenji and Nazeera to the rescue. The book thoughtfully navigates the themes of betrayal and trust. Characters find themselves in situations where they must scrutinize the intentions and allegiances of those around them. The story underscores the frailty of trust and the consequences of betrayal, fostering contemplation on the significance of trust in both personal and political relationships. The book predominantly follows Juliette's first-person perspective, providing readers with a direct insight into her thoughts and emotions. However, Defy Me also includes chapters from Warner's perspective, giving readers a more comprehensive understanding of his character. This alternating viewpoint offers a multifaceted exploration of the central relationship and adds depth to the characters' motivations and emotions. It also helps maintain reader engagement by providing varying insights into the story's key events and conflicts.

Mafi employs narrative techniques that contribute to the book's compelling storytelling. One notable technique is her use of first-person narration from Juliette's perspective. This choice allows readers to intimately connect with the protagonist's thoughts and emotions, immersing them in her internal struggles and the dilemmas she faces. The narrative technique also reveals the depth of Juliette's character development and her evolving understanding of her own identity. Mafi's use of language is poetic and evocative. She employs vivid and metaphorical descriptions that immerse readers in the story's emotional landscape. Her prose is laden with powerful imagery, allowing readers to viscerally experience the characters' emotions and the dystopian world they inhabit. This use of language elevates the narrative, making it a sensory and emotionally resonant experience.When Nazeera appears, as if out of thin air, I’m not the only one who’s pissed. Okay, maybe I’m the only one who’s pissed. 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. Castle, sir? I say, trying and failing to keep the sharp edge out of my voice. Do you want to chime in here? Overall, Defy Me is a book that continues to capture the hearts of fans with its emotional intensity and thought-provoking themes. It reinforces the strength of the series in creating characters that readers genuinely care about and offers a promising continuation of the "Shatter Me" saga. Tahereh Mafi's writing style in Defy Me is distinctive and plays a crucial role in enhancing the reading experience. Here's an examination of her writing style, including her use of language, tone, and narrative techniques:

I mean, I knew Juliette was strong—and I knew we hadn’t discovered the depth of her powers—but I never imagined she’d be capable of this.Tahereh Mafi crafts Defy Me with a multifaceted intention. She seeks to propel the "Shatter Me" series forward while diving deep into her characters' identities, emotions, and relationships. Mafi's storytelling aims to challenge readers to contemplate the nature of love, the repercussions of power and betrayal, and the importance of comprehending one's history. Warner – He and Anderson talk. Anderson tells Warner what his plan was. Warner throws a knife at Anderson. It hits Anderson in the throat. He collapses. Warner tells him to “Enjoy hell.”

Everyone is mad at Delalieu for not telling anyone everything that he knew. He says that Paris (Anderson) was always manipulating everything, and that he was the controller of everybody’s lives. The series' protagonist with a lethal touch, Juliette is navigating a world of political intrigue and personal turmoil. But I have a theory, the ten-year-old says. He says the word theory like it’s brand-new to him, like it’s an interesting sound in his mouth. And I want to share it with Kenji.

She steps forward. She looks suddenly terrifying. There’s a fire in her eyes. A murderous stillness in her movements. “If I ever catch you putting your hands on him again, I will tear open your chest,” she says, “and rip out your heart.” Tahereh Mafi is a best-selling YA Fantasy author best known for the Shatter Me series. However, she’s also written other books like This Woven Kingdom and A Very Large Expanse of Sea. The latter was named one of the best YA books of all time by Time Magazine. As I said, everything I mentioned above are things I think of as bad because if something similar (outing etc) had happened for a rep I’m ownvoices for I would be livid. Since there are no trigger warnings in the book, in this case I’m choosing not to stay in my lane in the hope to spare a trans person some hurt. I will be happy to link to trans reviewers once more people have read the book, but so far I haven’t really seen anything about this. Paris Warner!! Last time we saw him, Juliette, you know, shot him. Twice. But it seems the old Supreme Commander survived with a little healing. Warner, his son, doesn’t take the news so well and attempts to murder him. Again.
