The sequel to the action-packed Reboot is a can't-miss thrill ride, perfect for fans of James Patterson, Veronica Roth, 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 on their own 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.
I don't have much to say about this book. It's just not one that leaves a big enough impression on me to write a longer and more detailed review. It didn't wow me, but at the same time, it didn't leave me bored. I wasn't hugely interested in the fight against HARC and the rest of the plot. It was okay for me--dystopias are tougher for me to become fully invested in.
I did really like Wren and Callum and the changes they went through. She became more human, more happy. He became much stronger and became a leader. They seemed to switch roles in a way. They developed traits that the other had in Reboot, which was very nice to see. The two were adorable together too! They were my favorite part of the book.
Around 90 percent, I got restless. I just wanted to finish the book, which is never a good sign. Also, the ending result of the conflict seemed . . . too easy. It didn't end very well for me.
Overall, Rebel was a nice sequel. I found Reboot to be a much stronger book, though. That one was a great book! While the second book didn't impress me as much, I still liked the series and recommend it to fans of dystopia.
