 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.

My Thoughts

After reading and falling in love with Reboot last year, I could not wait to get my hands on Rebel to see how everything would wrap up.  I'm happy to say that Rebel was everything I was hoping for. 
Wren and Callum have finally made it to the Reboot Reservation and even though it looks good on the outside, they quickly learn that it's not the answer they were hoping for.  Micah, the Reservation leader isn't the nice guy that he portrays to Wren at first either.  Micah turns out to be a bloodthirsty asshole who wants to wipe the humans off the face of the earth, but will Wren and Callum let that happen?  I don't know (actually I do, but I'm not telling) you'll have to read to find out.

Wren is just as kickass in this book as she was in Reboot, although she has came a long way from the cold, emotionless girl that she seemed at the beginning of Reboot.  While I think some of that has to do with Callum, I don't think he's the only thing that changed her.  I feel like she was always a caring person underneath all that HRAC crap that filled her head, and I was so glad that we get to see more of that side in Rebel. 

In my opinion, Callum really steps up to the plate in this book.  I can't say much because I don' want to give anything away, but I will say that he while some things took me by surprise, I can see why he ends up where he does. 
 Overall, Rebel is just as action packed and engrossing as its predecessor.  Tintera's writing is amazing and she done a wonderful job bringing this duology to an end.
