“Loneliness is a strange sort of thing. It creeps on you, quiet and still, sits by your side in the dark, strokes by your hair as you sleep. It wraps itself around your bones, squeezing so tight you almost can't breathe. It leaves lies in your heart, lies next to you at night, leaches the light out of every corner. It's a constant companion, clasping your hand only to yank you down when you're struggling to stand up.” 

Now finally with others like her, Juliette will need to learn to control her powers before they begin to control her. After having not interacted with anyone for many years, suddenly being introduced into society is hard for her, but instead of growing closer with the boy who freed her, she begins to feel drawn to the very man who had caused her imprisonment. 

The second official book in the Shatter Me series, this book wasn’t as enjoyable as the others (which is saying something, as even those weren’t very good). Still painfully YA, with all the attached cliches and immature characters. Still, at least during this book the only good character gets some of the recognition he deserves. Even the knowledge that this was my childhood favorite series doesn’t stop me from cringing painfully at certain points in the book. For nostalgia’s stake, 3 out of 5 stars.
