From the Back Cover
The fate of Omega Point is unknown.
Everyone Juliette cares about may be dead. Now Juliette is the only one standing in The Reestablishment's way. But to take them down, as well as Anderson, the man that nearly killed her, Juliette needs the help of the one person she never thought she could trust: Warner. And as they work together, Juliette will discover that everything she thought she knew—about Warner, her abilities, and even Adam—was wrong.

All I can say is FINALLY!!!! This is the Juliette I have been waiting for. So she still kinda wines some but yes!!!! Finally she grew up a bit stopped crying all the damn time and kicked some incredible ass. Bravo. Standing ovation. Loved it.
My only issue was the last fight. I feel like it was just a little too fast, to easy. But I suppose there was no need to drag things on...?
And god I love Waren, didn't expect that to happen.
Ok, I loved Warner, Kenji and of course, Juliette. I was happy that Juliette gets the man of her dreams and the one I hoped for all along. I dislike Adam throughout most of this book, but in the end things are looking up for him and James. James, the inquisitive young guy has some awesome scenes with Warner. The winner of the one-liners though is once again, Kenji. I have moments of wishing that Kenji and Juliette would end up together.
Most of book is spent preparing for the inevitable battle with the super villain Anderson. Juliette has grown so much, she is no longer the scared, timid girl in the first couple of books. She is ready to use her powers to make things right in the world. It's beautiful to see her journey unfold. Mafi's descriptive talent is awe inspiring. We learn soooo much more about Warner and yes, I have to agree with the other reviewers...*sigh*.
This is a YA book, but let me say that the romance it HOT, but one that screams "less information is more"... those that have read this will know what I mean. The slow burn works to perfection here and when the fire finally "ignites" you'll be thrilled!!!!
If you're reading this review, hopefully you've read the other books. Hurry up and buy the trilogy's conclusion, you won't be disappointed! If you haven't started the series, what are you waiting for?
Juliette has come such a long way over the course of this series. She has gone from such a weak timid girl to someone you do not want to mess with. Gone is the girl afraid of her own shadow! She is sure of herself and sure in what she wants and determined to forge a better life for herself and for her friends. Gone is her doubt and self-depreciation and in their place is resolve and strength. In a word, she is kickass.
Now is the part of the review where I would discuss Warner and Adam and I have so many things I want to say. Unfortunately to do so would be to spoil a whole lot of things so I shall refrain. All I will say is that both characters had some shocking revelations. I’ll also say this; you get your love triangle answer pretty early on.
Since I can’t discuss those two I will discuss Kenji instead because Kenji is made of awesome. I can’t even explain how much I love his character. He is so witty and funny and always a spot of humor in the midst of a lot of destruction and devastation. He is such a great guy and a great friend to Juliette and Juliette really needs a friend. Behind his humor is a wonderful person and someone Juliette can really count on and I love that she finally found that.
Tahereh’s writing in Ignite Me was gorgeous. It was a slightly different style from her previous novels, but that really reflects how Juliette has grown. Her writing just flows and I feel like it really allows you to feel like you are really living inside Juliette’s head.
There are so many more things I want to say about the perfection that is Ignite Me. Unfortunately I can’t because all of them would spoil this wonderful book. It was just a wonderful conclusion to a wonderful series. Just read it!
The author shouldn't have tried to push Warner down our throats. She killed Adam's character (figuratively) to try and make us hate him, and that's just not okay. I would have vouched for Warner no matter what.
The romance just overtook the whole book... There is a war coming and all Juliette can think about is which boy she loves.
Juliette's unrealistic transformation: ugh! Can authors please STOP shoving unrealistic female characters down our throats just because the publishing industry demands it. I loved Juliette just fine before she became a psychopath.
Finally, the side characters were just flat. Why even have any side characters? I can't even remember their names because they were so boring.
With that being said, the love story was just beautiful and the writing is just flawless.
I just wish Tahereh Mafi didn't feel the need to follow trends because she completely butchered her character.
