As Omega Point prepares to launch an all-out assault on The Reestablishment soldiers stationed in Sector 45, Adam's focus couldn't be further from the upcoming battle. He's reeling from his breakup with Juliette, scared for his best friend's life, and as concerned as ever for his brother James's safety. And just as Adam begins to wonder if this life is really for him, the alarms sound. It's time for war. On the battlefield, it seems like the odds are in their favor—but taking down Warner, Adam's newly discovered half brother, won't be that easy. The Reestablishment can't tolerate a rebellion, and they'll do anything to crush the resistance . . . including killing everyone Adam has ever cared about.
I am really happy when authors have novellas that tie in with their already published novels. It adds depth to their story but quite truthfully it makes me more excited to want to find out what's next. However, sometimes novella do fall short of accomplishing but that isn't the case with Tahereh Mafi. She writes just as compelling of a novella as she does a novel.
Adam and Juliette have hit a fan in their relationship but all that seems to be put even more on hold as a battle is approaching. Tensions are rising and one must wonder if the resistance is prepared not just physically but emotionally and mentally as well.
I think I found myself more on my feet with this novella than I have been with the novels. The fact that Mafi has been able to write a sixty page part where my interest has been hooked from the very beginning. There is that drama we all live for, there is action, there are tears to be shed but there is the feeling where you want to drop everything and continue reading.
Mafi continues to hold my interest and I am fully invested. Have you read these novellas? Do you enjoy novellas as much as I? Mafi does not disappoint. In a sixty page firecracker of a story you will be sure to fall in love. Absolutely stunning!
I give this novella 5 souls!
