SciFi Book Review: Rebel

Rebel by Amy Tintera

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.

Wren, Callum, and the rest of the freed Reboots arrive at what looks like a place of peace and freedom from HARC. But this group of Reboots isn’t what it appears to be, and Wren soon finds herself making a difficult decision that could put the rest of her friends at risk. Callum is Wren’s moral compass at times, and their relationship seems to be what keeps both of them going.

Rebel is the action-packed conclusion to the Reboot duology. This sequel is full of suspense, intrigue, and drama – and is impossible to put down. Wren and Callum’s journey is an intense, science fiction, adventure that teens and adults will enjoy. The excitement builds to a thrilling finale that I thoroughly enjoyed.
