Description: Five years ago, Wren Connolly died. One hundred and seventy-eight minutes later, she came back to life as a Reboot. The longer the time spent dead, the stronger, faster, and less emotional a Reboot is – making Wren 178 the ultimate weapon. Now seventeen, she’s the best special-ops soldier in the Republic of Texas.
Callum 22, on the other hand, is so slow he’s practically still human. Wren has never had a trainee like him; he’s always asking pesky questions and making her feel things. When Callum fails to measure up to Reboot standards, Wren is told to eliminate him. But the perfect soldier is done taking orders, and she’ll do whatever it takes to save Callum’s life.
Wren’s captivating voice will draw readers into this high-stakes story of a battle for love in the most unlikely of places, ideal for fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent.
Review by Cassie Leeann:
Set in a new post-apocalyptic world (the likes of which have been cropping up a lot lately), Reboot sets itself apart with a spellbinding plot and…zombies?
Well, sort of.
Reboots are humans that were infected with a virus that made their bodies restart after they had died. They are then rounded up, stripped of all their rights, and basically turned into a police force, monitored by human guards and scientists, called HARC. And as HARC has all the power in this society, you might have already guessed that things start to get a bit out of hand. The book is told entirely from a Reboot’s point of view. Her changing view on the world and her place in it makes her a compelling narrator.
This is a great book that I couldn’t quit reading once I started it. And though it ended in nice place, if it’s not the first in a series, I might cry. There are far too many stories in this world for it to be over, in my opinion.
