Overview

Ideal for fans of James Patterson and Marie Lu, Amy Tintera’s sequel to Reboot is full of edge-of-your-seat action, steamy romance, and two captivating voices, making this series a can’t-miss thrill ride.

When Wren and Callum finally reach the Reboot Reservation, a safe haven from HARC, they discover it isn’t the paradise they’d been expecting. Instead, it’s run by the bloodthirsty Micah 163, who has been building an army of Reboots intent on wiping out all the humans. Callum and
Wren begin organizing a rebel army to fight back, but with HARC on one side and
Micah on the other, saving the innocent and forging a lasting peace between humans and Reboots is a nearly impossible task. But Wren and Callum have never let that stop them before.

With powerful characters, cinematic action, and a heart-stopping romance, this riveting sequel to Reboot is an explosive and triumphant finish to this much-buzzed duology.

Editorial Reviews

ALA Booklist
“A fascinating premise, delivered in gory and glorious cinematic detail—and with a healthy dose of romance…The quick pace, familiar yet altered setting, and strong humanitarian message will draw Hunger Games fans.”
Sophie Jordan
“I don’t know what left me more breathless—the breakneck pace or the heart—stopping romance! I loved it!”
Lissa Price
“A bone–breaking heroine fights for her life, her love, and what remains of her humanity in this fresh take on a world gone wrong.”
Veronica Rossi
Praise for REBOOT: “Fast paced and thrilling…I devoured this book!”
C. J. Redwine
“Riveting, fast–paced, and full of heart—I simply couldn’t put it down.”
VOYA, June 2014 (Vol. 37, No. 2) - Diane Colson
At the conclusion of Reboot (HarperTeen, 2013/Voya August 2013), Wren 178 was standing with her new love, Callum 22, along with hundreds of other Austin rebooters, gazing at the sign marking “Reboot Territory.” This is exactly where they are at the beginning of this sequel, only this time Callum tells the story. The narration alternates between Wren and Callum for the rest of the book. Readers quickly learn of Wren’s power over the group; her exceptionally high number, 178, indicates the number of minutes that she was dead before she was “rebooted.” After fleeing the harsh life at HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation,) Wren and her group are looking for sanctuary. It seems they are welcomed into a fortified compound inhabited by fellow enemies of HARC, but the behavior of these new allies quickly becomes weirdly ominous. For one thing, there are hauntingly strange reboot babies. All females are expected to bear such children. Wren herself is immediately recruited to participate in “hunts” that target human beings. Wren, Callum, and their friends realize soon enough that they have traded one danger for another. Readers who are continuing the story from Reboot will appreciate the addition of Callum’s perspective, as well as new villains, new friends, and a suitably ambiguous ending. But despite Tintera’s efforts at weaving the complex backstory into the advancement of the new plot, it is difficult to capture the intensity of the characters’ relationships, or of the danger presented by old enemies. It is better to read Reboot before tackling this sequel. Reviewer: Diane Colson; Ages 12 to 18.
School Library Journal
05/01/2014
Gr 8 Up—The cliff-hanger ending of Reboot (HarperCollins, 2013) almost guaranteed that readers would be treated to a continuation of the story of Wren 178 and Callum 22. In the first book, readers discovered that a horrific virus known as KDH caused some people to rise from the dead—but only those who are young and strong. They are known as Reboots, and they have been trained and used by HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation) as soldiers against a devastated civilian population in the name of national security. As this book opens, several Reboots, led by Wren and Callum, have escaped their HARC enclosure in search of free Reboots, reported to be hiding in the north, in the hopes of joining them and successfully overthrowing HARC. Unfortunately, they are unaware that their mission will take them into even greater danger at the hands of those who should have been their allies. Action-packed scenes, graphic violence, and a developing love story between the lead characters in a postapocalyptic world will appeal to teens who appreciate the genre made popular by Suzanne Collins's The Hunger Games.—Jane Henriksen Baird, Anchorage Public Library, AK
Kirkus Reviews
2014-03-17
A breakneck follow-up to Reboot (2013) delves deep into its characters. Wren 178 has successfully led a group of Reboots to freedom after breaking them out of the facility where they were imprisoned and forced to act as soldiers carrying out the bidding of the humans in charge. The numbers associated with Reboots' names represent the minutes they spent dead before rebooting—reanimation as more physically sound versions of themselves, a side effect for some of a rampant virus that has plagued humanity in this near-future world. This second novel smartly delves into questions of ethical responsibility, placing Wren in the middle of situations in which others look to her for leadership even as she longs to escape the burden and forcing her to choose whether or not to challenge the radical notions of the leader of the refugee camp in which they've sheltered. She's a tough, immensely likable narrator—a task newly shared with her love interest, Callum 22, this time around. Their alternating narration works just fine, but it somewhat lessens the sharpness of her voice. At the same time, readers who are thrilling to their developing romance may well like the insight into Callum's thoughts. Action-packed and intelligent, this science-fiction thriller offers a refreshingly hopeful conclusion. (Dystopian adventure. 14-18)

    Just as good as the first

    The plot continues to grow in Rebel. This book is never boring and I would definitely recommend it. Callum and Wren are so cute! They make the story that much better. Not to mention Riley!!!! He is so great. Read this book. You won't regret it.

    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.

    *I received a copy of this book for review purposes. This has not affected my opinion of the book in any way.

       I wanted to read Rebel because the premise and action was the

       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.

    The second in a dualogy, so if you have not read book one, you may want to pause here and not read any further as spoilers may occur!

    Ok.  So book two was different and I loved a few of the differences!  Unlike book one where Wren told the entire story, this book gives Callum a voice and the chapters alternate between Wren and Callum telling the story - I loved this!  I loved how Callum was able to provide a different voice and continue the story at certain times when Wren couldn't.

    I had a great time reading Reboot by author Amy Tintera and with

    I had a great time reading Reboot by author Amy Tintera and with the way that the novel concluded I knew that I had, had, had to read the sequel. Imagine my surprise that it was the very last novel in the series. That being said I had high expectations going into Rebel. For a final book I expected fireworks and something I would never forget. Guess what guys? That’s exactly what I received (if you replace fireworks with lots of action sequences).

    Rebel takes place exactly where Reboot left off. Wren and Callum have escaped from HARC and expect an easy life full of freedom awaiting them North at the Reboot Reservation. But oh, how wrong they are. The Reservation’s leader Micah has a twisted set of morals and an even worse idea of what this world should be. He is prepared to wage war between Reboots and humans and after the horrifying acts he commits before Wren’s eyes, she knows that no good is to come from this place Everything inside of her is telling her to leave and save herself and the boy she loves—but Callum will have none of it. Not if it means risking the lives of the human family he left behind. Both of them know exactly what they must do next: stand up and fight for what they believe in or lose everything.

    Just like in Reboot I was pulled into a world where teens are brought back from the dead and used as soldiers. With Wren being one of (if not the most) badass Reboot soldiers in the world, in the last book we saw her go from a heartless shell and turn into an emotional killer with a conscious all because of her relationship with Callum. I love Wren’s character and her character development and in Rebel we see her improve even more.

    To all the readers who loved Reboot’s strong female protagonist you see a whole new side of Wren in the sequel that I adored.

    There are a whole lot of new characters that we are introduced to in Rebel. As well as new threats and the offspring of Reboots (because yes, the big question of reproduction is confirmed in Reboots babies). The absolute best ‘new’ thing to come out of this novel is Callum’s point of view. We get to see things through his eyes as well as Wren’s. And there’s a whole lot more romance now than there were in Reboot. Though I have to admit that I kind of wished for more than what was given in Rebel, with all the action that takes place we’re lucky to get any at all.

    You read that right. The amount of action in Reboot is nothing compared to what’s in Rebel. Rebel is a fast-paced, non-stop novel that grips you pretty much right from the start and doesn’t let go. People die. The threat of war lingers dangerously in every chapter and things go from bad to worse. Tintera writes these action scenes with the right amount of detail and emotion to make it feel real and play out like a movie in the reader’s mind. This pretty much sated my thirst for more action from Reboot.

    The most accurate way to talk about Rebel is by saying it’s Reboot times 10. Everything that readers loved about Reboot is upped to the brink and then some. For the final novel in the duology I can say that I am pleased with how it concluded and hope that there might be some hope for a spin-off or something (I really really loved the world that Tintera has created okay?).

    I would recommend the Reboot series to fans of sci-fi, readers who are looking for a novel with a total badass lady main character and to any readers who are big fans of dystopia with insane twists. This is a series you shouldn’t miss.

    Rebel is the second book in Amy Tintera's amazing Reboot series.

    Rebel is the second book in Amy Tintera's amazing Reboot series.




    Told through the dual perspectives of Wren (one-seventy-eight) and Callum (twenty-two), we pick up right where we left off at the end of Reboot, Wren and Callum have escaped their HARC facility whilst also breaking out all the Reboots from the Austin facility as well.




    Making it to the Reservation, a place that was believed to be more myth than reality, they all find themselves overjoyed to finally be free from HARC and in a place where it's just Reboots, with no humans to be seen.




    Run by a Reboot named Micah (one-sixty-three) who was experimented on by HARC for many years, anti HARC and humans, he believes himself superior because of his number, but he soon starts to show his true colors, when one of Wren's friends finds herself being punished by him for not seeing things his way Wren and Callum realise how cruel he actually is.




    Micah doesn't take to kindly to Wren stopping the punishment, added to the fact that she and the rest of the Reboots she arrived with are against his plans of eliminating all humans and it isn't long before he gets his revenge.




    In the absence of Wren, Callum really steps it up in this book, with everybody looking to him for guidance and leadership, he finally feels like he's more than just Wren's boyfriend, although he'd much rather leave the fighting to her.




    With quite a few new characters to love or loathe, Rebel is as exciting as Reboot was, and while I'm unsure as to whether or not this series is a duology or a trilogy I'm pretty happy with the way this book ended, whether it's the end or not I look forward to reading whatever Amy writes and releases in the future, she has definitely become an auto-buy author for me.




    A wonderful series with excellent world building and a plot that will keep you intrigued and thirsty for more, there's nothing that I can fault, brilliant all round.

    Wren 178 reminds me of a little bit of Resident Evil Alice mushe

    Wren 178 reminds me of a little bit of Resident Evil Alice mushed together with a little bit of Vampire Slayer Buffy. She's a total scary badass, but can turn into a bit of a softie for the right person. In Wren's case, that person is Callum. Rebel is their end game, and it introduces a new bad guy in addition to HARC, just to make things interesting (as if things weren't interesting enough).

    Wren, Callum and the rest of the Austin reboots have escaped to the reboot reservation to, hopefully, find some peace and quiet - for once in their lives. Er... deaths. Er... afterlives. Anyway, it soon becomes clear that the reservation may not be much better than the HARC facilities in which they were imprisoned and forced to work. Wren and Callum come to a realization that they can't ever be truly free until the reboots AND the humans are given the freedom to decide what they want to do and where they want to live for themselves, and to do that, HARC needs to be eliminated. For good.

    One thing Rebel has in spades is action. Wren and Callum seem to be fighting everyone in Rebel. They arrive at the reservation, and are introduced to Micah, the leader. Immediately, he takes charge of all the Austin reboots and forces them to bend to his will. He rules with an iron fist, and that causes a lot of friction with the Austin reboots - particularly Callum. It becomes clear very quickly that Wren, Callum and the rest of the Austin reboots have simply traded one enemy for another - the agendas are just different. Evil is evil, and where HARC may have earned its evil badge by enslaving and experimenting on reboots, Micah has certainly earned his, but for very different reasons. It seems the peace and quiet Wren and Callum wanted to find will be elusive for awhile.

    The best thing about Rebel is seeing the change in Wren. If you look back at the Wren from the beginning of Reboot, you can see how much she has grown and changed. The post-Callum Wren laughs and cries and stands up for the people she cares about. She questions her own judgement and the choices that others around her make instead of blindly following orders. She sincerely wants to help make her world a better place, at least for reboots. Callum has a hero complex and wants to save everyone, and while Wren doesn't really care that much about the humans, at least at first, she cares about Callum, and that's enough for her.

    Wren has boatloads of integrity, and I love that about her. She may be a bit cold and calculating at time, but she's inherently good. Callum is Wren's voice of reason. She's come to rely on him to help point her in the right direction as she acclimates to life without HARC. And, Callum is all too happy to fill that role. He cares about her and is so happy to see the changes in Wren. It's awesome to see them working together, even if they don't always see eye-to-eye. I love how they seek out the others' strengths when they need them. Callum looks to Wren for her physical strength and desire to protect. Wren turns to Callum when she needs her moral compass repointed. And, don't all couples do that? Lean on and count on one another when you feel yourself waffling? It's wonderfully... normal.

    Rebel is told in dual POV, so we get the advantage of both Wren's and Callum's experiences. It was especially helpful since there was a portion of the book where they are separated. The end of Rebel was incredibly fulfilling and satisfying. I'd love a third book in the series so I could find out what comes next for Wren and Callum. There's still so much going on in their world. Amy, any chance you're reading this??

    I Also Recommend:

    What I liked about this book right away was that it started off

    What I liked about this book right away was that it started off exactly where REBOOT left off.  There was no skipping ahead than doing some rehash so the reader could catch up.  Being a duology, this is also perfect for the marathon read of one book right after the other.  Another thing I liked about this book was that it was dual POV.  Switching between Wren and Callum, you were given a better experience and hints on how both perceived the situation at hand, and how they saw each other.  This was something that was missing in Reboot and luckily the author went with it in Rebel.

    The action is non-stop in this book.  You would think that making it to the Reboot Reservation that things would calm down, but that is exactly the opposite.  Newly freed reboots aren't ones to be suppressed and they had to deal with that and other ideals of the "leaders" in place.  Situations got ugly and Wren just couldn't catch a break for the majority of the book.  Thank goodness she's a reboot because there would have been no way for a normal human to go through everything she did.  

    This book really upped the ante from the previous one, but the situations were night and day from one to the other.  Wren discovers what kind of person she truly is, Callum has closure with family matters, HARC gets plenty of surprises and humanity finds a way to the forefront.  There are losses, hope, anger, fear, reunions, romance and closures.  

    I did feel that there's more to the story than how it ended.  I can see where the author could have continued onto one more book and completed with a trilogy.  The story itself is unique, the premise of the reboots are genius and wanting more is a good thing.  It means the author did a good job at bringing her story to her readers.  

    I recommend this book to anyone who likes a good scifi, dystopia type read.  The true story here is how humanity has a way of coming through in even the worst circumstances.  Readers from the ages of 12 on up will find themselves immersed quickly in the world of reboots and will enjoy every moment of it.  There's violence, but not graphic in your face type, but enough of an innuendo to know what is happening and allowing the reader to picture it the way they are comfortable with.

    Personally, I enjoyed this book more than the first, Reboot.  I look forward to whatever the author, Amy Tintera, brings to the literary community next.

    Phew...What an thrilling ride in REBEL! Amy Tintera has done it


    Phew...What an thrilling ride in REBEL! Amy Tintera has done it again, and she has manged to surpass REBOOT on so many levels! And that's hard to imagine, as much as I LOVEDDDDDD REBOOT when I read it last year! I can happily say, REBEL has come out on top in the duology, and become one of my favorites for 2014!

    In REBEL we had so much growth in the main character Wren. In the first book REBOOT, Wren was a cold blooded killer. Really, she killed without question and without remorse. But it's totally understandable why and how Wren was able to be so cold in REBOOT. But in REBEL, Callum, the other main character in REBEL and also Wren's love interest, has succeed in melting the ice around Wren's heart, and allowed her to feel again. And in REBEL she doesn't have as many feelings as humans do or even as some of the lesser number Reboots do, but they were definitely there. And it was nice to see a more compassionate Wren, but still have this hard-edged, strong, take no crap type of gal. And in both books Wren was awesome, but I think I liked her a little it more in REBEL as she showed some feelings!

    THE PLOT...

    REBEL picks up right where REBOOT left off. Wren & Addie has succeed in saving Callum from becoming a flesh craving monster that he was becoming in the first book, REBOOT! And in the process they've manged to save all the Reboots in the Austin HARC facility. This is where REBEL picks back up!

    They've made it! They're finally free from the clutches of the power-hungry HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation.) And have well over 100 Reboots with them all looking to Wren for direction on which way to go and what to do next! They've heard talk about a Reboot Reservation, and are relieved when they arrive to find it true! Finally they can live in freedom, without fear of the humans claiming control of their lives. Until... Micah, the deranged leader of the Reboot Reservation is ready to take a stand against the HARC. But it's not just the HARC he wants to strike! It's ALL humans! He wants to rid the world of the lesser of the 2 races, and allow the evolved Reboots to become the worlds new dictators.

    Micah's insane and has a thirst for human blood. Wren 178, doesn't know what to feel about this as she is just starting to get in touch with her feelings. But Callum 22, is very much in tune with his feelings and can not allow this to happen! He has faith that the humans want to be rid the HARC as much as the Reboots do and are willing to help them. As they have proved it by helping the Reboots save Callum and free the Austin Reboots. But not everyone is willing to side with saving the humans like he is...including Wren!

    In this fast-paced, action-packed, second book in this EPIC duology, Wren & Callum must battle their own wars to see if their fighting for the same cause. But there is one thing Wren is willing to fight for and that's Callum, so what's a girl to do when the one you love is fighting for something your not sure you believe in? And what about all that bloodshed that is the inevitable? What side will triumph and what side will Succumb? Will the Reboots find it in their cold emotionless hearts to save the humans who hasn't done much to save them? And what about the HARC? There not going down without a battle that will kill hundreds on both sides? And Micah, what's he to do if some of the Reboots side with saving the humans?

    It's all coming to a head and it's going to pop, but what side will come out on top no body knows. War is raging and battles will be fought, lives will be lost, but one side will change their world forever...One way or another!!!

    This book has truly touched my heart and made it's way to my favorites shelf where it will stay for years to come! Amy Tintera is an amazing writer, and she has rocked this series and I'm so sad to see it go, but I'm anxious to see what's in store for her coming books, because I will definitely be reading ANYTHING this woman writes!
