Rebel (Reboot, #2)


Wren Connolly thought she'd left her human side behind when she dies five years ago and came back 178 minutes later as a Reboot. With her new abilities of strength, speed, and healing—along with a lack of emotions—Wren 178 became the perfect soldier for HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation). Then Callum 22 came along and changed everything.

Now that they've both escaped, they're ready to start a new life in peace on the Reboot reservation. But Micah 163, the Reboot running the reservation, has darker plans in mind: to wipe out the humans. All of them. Micah has been building a Reboot army for years and is now ready to launch his attack on the cities. Callum wants to stick around and protect the humans. Wren wants nothing more than to leave all the fighting behind them.

With Micah on one side, HARC on the other, and Wren and Callum at odds in the middle, there's only one option left...

It's time for Reboots to become rebels.



"I started laughing, a hysterical laugh that got louder as the panic began to fully set in."
I remember enjoying the first book in series Reboot, alot more than this sequel. I started reading excited to see how Wren and Callum continued through the many obstacles, that laid before them. The new characters and situations that were addressed, was exciting at first. However after a strong start, the book throws new elements in that aren't explained or explored well enough. The lack of depth in the descriptions of the new elements to the story, and surface characters left me underwhelmed.

The book isn't all bad, and never wanted to abandon the book all together while reading. The story has a lot of action, most of the book  is action scenes and dialogue. Ms. Tintera's ability to throw in humor among the chaos of the book, comes off as genuine and was well received. The romance was believable, and sweet.  Dealing with the morality involved in killing or saving humans once you become a Reboot continued to be interesting. But there wasn't enough for me to latch on and really care about the characters.
zombie shrug, warm bodies
The flow and structure of the book, seemed to be the most problematic part of reading it. Everything happens  too quickly and usually works out extremely well. There was action that was hard to understand, because it was explained too fast. The changing point of views also distracted me at times, because I would have to remember from who's point of view I was reading. I think it would have worked better of the changing point of views were of people not together most of the book. The ending tied things up nicely, but there wasn't enough conflict involved to make it believable. Read if you want to know how the series ends, otherwise it's not really worth it.

I agree this wasn't as good as the first but I still really liked it, mostly because I just loved Callum so darn much throughout the duology. I am super excited that this is going to be made into a movie. I can't wait to watch it!

I am sorry you didn't ;like this as much as the first. ;)

I read the first book and I didn't like it. :/ There's just something that screams "cliche". It wasn't all that bad but I have enough of it.
So to say, I didn't continue with the series.

Thanks for such an honest review. I heard of the first book but might not invest time if the sequel stinks.
