I really enjoyed this final book in the Altered series...of course now I know there are some novellas to read as well, so yay more Altered! The only thing I would change about this book is the loose ends. There is one character in particular that I would love to know what happened after the events in this novel. I like that this book focused more on Nick, he's one of my favorite characters and I liked seeing more of his point of view here. I also really enjoyed the addition of Elizabeth and found her character to be very interesting. The alterations in her are so different from the others that it added a whole new depth to the story and a new kind of horror to what The Branch was capable of. I really loved the ending...I want to get more specific here, but I keep my reviews spoiler free, so I will just reiterate that the ending was great. I would recommend this book for anyone who loves futuristic thriller type books. Also, it has a very dystopian feel even though it's not exactly post-apocalyptic, so I think that fans of that genre would enjoy this series as well. Definitely start with Altered though, it's not a series that you can really jump around with.

MY THOUGHTS  I was actually disappointed by this book. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't what I was expecting.  Nick has been having flashbacks of a past he can't remember. All featuring a girl covered in blood. Nick is wondering who the girl is and if the Branch made him hurt her, or worse, so he heads out to look for her.  Elizabeth is haunted by a kidnapping that happened to her years ago, and ended in the death of her mother. When the boy who rescued her comes to town, she begins to be able to piece together what happened those years ago. What I liked about this book was seeing more about Nick's character. We didn't really get much about Nick in the previous books, and it was nice being about to see things from his point of view. It was also interesting seeing what happened in his past and how things have affected him. We are also introduced to new characters in this book, especially Elizabeth. Elizabeth is out other perspective in this book. She was okay. I couldn't really connect to her and she was, really, kind of similar to other girls in YA books. Though, I could really tell that her past haunted her and I did find her interest in scents interesting. To be honest, this book felt unnecessary. It was from a different perspective and it was mostly just served as giving Nick a romance. Yeah, it explained what was happening to Nick in Erased, but I didn't think that warranted an entire book. My favorite part of this series would be how action-packed and how it's full of surprises. Sadly, this book didn't have much of that. It was very slow-paced for a majority of it. The last few chapters make up for it though!  IN CONCLUSION  This book felt more like a novella to me, because of how different it was from the rest of the series. I liked this book and I enjoyed seeing things from Nick's perspective, but it felt unnecessary. If you would like to know more about Nick and come back to this world, then read it. Unless you are a shipper of Anna and Nick (I didn't know that existed until reading the reviews). You would be disappointed by this book.

I love that these books are full of hot boys. That’s really all there is to say about the entire series. That’s all anyone needs to know. Read it for the man-candy. But seriously, this series is good. It started out following Anna’s storyline, but kind of weaved off on its own after Erased. I had no idea this was going to happen. I was expecting another book from Anna’s point of view with just a hefty dose of love triangle between her, Sam, and Nick. But nope, that’s not what happened at all. And I’m not really sure how I feel about that. We never really learn a whole lot about Nick in the previous two books. He’s just a broody bad boy. He gets a little more depth in this book, but not enough to really allow me to connect with his character. Although, I do like the piano bit. It added a lot, even though it was a very subtle mention. I think pairing him off with an entirely new character, while good in that it added a new and exciting plot to the story, left me feeling kind of “eh.” I was hoping for something that really delved into his past. Maybe Nick’s mystery-flashback girl was someone he knew before he got caught up in the Branch business. Someone from his nasty past. That would have really brought out some character development. Instead, we’re given a quick and thrown-together romance between a character we want to know more about and a character we just met who doesn’t have a lot of complexity. The plot was good. I definitely enjoyed it more than the second book’s. I liked how Nick got to go off on his own and make a name for himself without having his posse behind him. (Random question: Is this what Jennifer Rush is going to keep doing? Are there going to be other books with Cas and Trev as the main characters?) I think the introduction to a new lab was needed, and the effects the lab produces were very intriguing. If there are other books, I can’t wait to see how that aspect of the story plays out. All in all, Reborn was good. It was a little hard to get into at first (mostly because of the dual POVs), but once I got about halfway through, I flew through it. If you enjoyed the first two books, make sure you snatch up this one. Plus, you know you need that drool-worthy cover on your shelf. 3/5 stars *Note: I borrowed a copy of this book from my library. This in no way altered my opinion/review.

Just when I thought I was finished with the ALTERED series, Nick's story show up! These covers still remain as some of my very favorites, and not just because of the shirtless good looking guys. REALLY, IT'S NOT. I love how the colors, the coding and the trees all tie into the ALTERED world and bring it to life. Like it's predecessors, REBORN has lots of action, lots of suspense and plenty of swoon, but it's unique in that, not only do we FINALLY get inside of Nick's head, but we also get inside someone else's too. A girl someone just in case you didn't figure that out from the blurb. It happens. Besides, the cover model is a little distracting. This one didn't suck me in as fast as the first two books did, but that's okay, because once I was hooked (about 1/4 of the way in), I could.not.put.it.down. Watching Nick and---girl's story unfold and weave together through their dual POVs was really cool! Especially since it ultimately created an even bigger picture than the one we had at the end of ERASED (ALTERED #2). Sam, Anna and Cas are in it too and there's even a chance for redemption for a certain traitor someone who shall not be named. My only qualm was how fast the ending came. We get these epic fighting scenes with lots of action and butt-kicking and then----it ends. The aftermath is shown, but I kind of felt like I needed more. Especially more Nick with him doing Nickish kinds of things with----people. Or person. (I don't think I'm vagueing too well here.) Anyway, I AM happy to know this won't be the last we see of the ALTERED world and I am CROSSING ALL THE THINGS that ONE DAY I'll get to read Cas' full story. Maybe he'll even meet/rescue/fall in love with a girl who has pink hair and bakes him Twix cupcakes. Because that would be amazing and I would totally read that story! Until then, this makes an excellent addition to the series and fans of ALTERED, ERASED, FORGED, and NICK want to read this!
