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 read Rebel a week after I read Reboot, almost back to back and I was dying to read what would happen with the main characters - Wren and Callum. Also I had two really good surprises with this book, the first being that I didn´t know that this book was with dual point of view, alternating between Wren and Callum. And the second, was that I didn´t know that this was the last book, I had the idea that it was a trilogy; so these were really good surprises for me.
Rebel is more violent than its predecessor, but the story is fast-paced, the story flows and is quite gripping, so I read it relatively fast, it has a lot more action (a little gory), more romance (NO love triangle), is more intense, and with a very good and satisfying ending.
The story begins moments after Reboot ended, so I got to see their reception in the Reboot reservation, get to know Micah the leader of the reservation and his minions, the only one that stood out was Jules, which I didn´t like at all. And Micah is the trigger for a big decision that Wren makes, that maybe otherwise might never have happened.
Something that I really liked was the romance between Callum and Wren; and although it isn´t the main plot, it´s really important (at least for me it was); and I really enjoyed Callum´s POVs, because he´s really funny, and we get to see how he thinks, how he feels and his feelings for Wren. I liked that even though he knows that Wren can defend herself and she doesn´t react emotionally like most reboots, he really wants to protect her and he sees her for who she really is and not only for her number 178, which is what the rest of the reboots and humans see in her. Something that I like about him is his sense of humor (he made me laugh).
Overall, I LOVED this book! and I recommend this book to all fans of YA dystopian fiction.
