Description

The sequel to the action-packed Reboot is a can't-miss thrill ride, perfect for fans of James Patterson and Marie Lu.

After coming back from death as Reboots and being trained by HARC as soldiers, Wren and Callum have finally escaped north, where they hope to find a life of freedom. But when they arrive at the Reboot reservation, it isn't what they expected. Under the rule of a bloodthirsty leader, Micah, the Reboots are about to wage an all-out war on the humans. Although Wren's instincts are telling her to set off into the wilderness and leave the battle far behind, Callum is unwilling to let his human family be murdered. When Micah commits the ultimate betrayal, the choice is made for them. But Micah has also made a fatal mistake--he's underestimated Wren and Callum.

The explosive finale to the Reboot duology is full of riveting action and steamy love scenes as Wren and Callum become rebels against their own kind.

Back cover copy

Wren Connolly thought she'd left her human side behind when she died 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.

Not long ago, I read Reboot, a book I really liked a lot. Since then, I was impatiently waiting for Rebel to come out. And it finaly did! I am happy to say that I liked this one even more then the previous one. It's that great, okay? Rebel starts off just where Reboot ended. Wren and Callum, along with the rest of the Austin reboots they freed, arrive at the reboot camp, lead by Micah. After fighting off the HARC, they are trying to learn how to live with their new freedom and trying to figure out what to do next. In one thing they are sure though, and that is not following Micah's lead and helping him achieve his goals. But how are they going to free the rest of the reboots and what to do with humans and HARC people? If you think there were many exciting fighting scenes in Reboot, just you wait until you read Rebel! It is action packed from start to finish. The first book, gave us most things we needed to know about the reboot world, but there are some things we learned about reboots in the sequel too. Rebel is amazing because of many things, but one thing that meant the most to me is character growth. While in Reboot everything was about creating the world and the plot, characters were the part that was neglected. There wasn't as much character development as I would have liked to see, but Rebel evens it all out. Tintera, while still managing to maintain my level of excitement with fast pace and really interesting plot, dedicated a lot of time in developing her characters. It isn't a question anymore if Wren does have feelings or not, but we see how she struggles with her feelings, with her humanity, with what's wrong and what's right. We see the inner battle that she has with herself and we see the outcome that it brings. Callum had one thing that he was proud of: even though he was a reboot, he never killed anyone. But that was taken from him when he killed that man in Reboot. In Rebel we see how he learns to live with guilt, how he learns not to always rely on Wren and how he learns to take things into his hands and be a leader. The romance between our two main characters was strong before, but it just gets stronger with this book. I really like how good the two are together and how they balance each other out. The only thing I do not like in Rebel is that it is the last book in duology. Yes, duology. I know I usually don't like when series have to many books in it, and normally I would be perfectly happy if there were only two books, as I get bored when the series drag on, but with Reboot: I WANT MORE! I NEED MORE!show more

I wanted to read Rebel because the premise and action was there for me in Reboot. Wren was different, her humanity was brought out by Callum, and I liked their chemistry and how they were together. I remembered that Reboot was captivating and I read it all at once, and was hoping for the same romance, action and plot to once again take me away in Rebel. Rebel certainly started out entertaining. I don't remember if it was dual perspective in Reboot, but we start out in Callum's head, and his sense of humor was great. He was looking at Wren and said she had a look on her face like she was either happy or thinking about beating someone up. Either way, he loved that look. And that sums up Wren. She gives this calm facade but inside she is nervous and unsure at times. She doesn't realize just how much everyone looks to her as a leader. And Callum sees her strength. Rebel starts right where Reboot left off. I read a summary of Reboot since I didn't have time to reread, and once again the recaptains blog helped me to remember the details. I probably would have been a bit lost, but with a refresher course, I was ready to hit the ground running right along with the plot. They are a bit divided, Wren was just as happy staying at HARC, but Callum wasn't a fan of that. Then she starts feeling like Micah can't be trusted and that they shouldn't stay at the Reboot camp, but again, she concedes and stays for Callum. I think that they both finally get things that need to be said out in the air and figure out the best thing for them, and the best thing they can do to help others. There were quite a few surprises in this on. Micah's cruelty, people who ended up standing by and backing up Wren and Callum, seeing Callum step up with leadership, as well as some of the plot turns that I never saw coming. I think that the biggest thing for me was seeing the character growth in both Wren and Callum. Callum for learning to lead, and figuring out where his stance is with the morals and with killing people as well as how he views Wren and if he really wishes that some things about her would change. Wren had a lot of growth as far as recognizing the logical action--which sometimes is the extreme and hurts other people, and what the best plan for everyone is. She also comes around more with her feelings, emotions, and sorts out the guilt issue--does she feel it for killing people? Should she? The romance was nice in this one. They are already together and they are a rock and something to depend on for each other, but they are also whole and complete and can stand on their own. They just provide an extra source of strength. There were some pretty tense scenes but also some very hot and swoon worthy in this one. The ending wrapped things up very well and I put down the book satisfied and having hope for the future of Wren, Callum, the Reboots and this world in general. Bottom Line: Fast paced satisfying ending to fun and swoony series.show more
