(ARC) Book Review (335): Rebel (Reboot #2) - Amy Tintera

Rebel (Reboot #2)

**Warning Contains Spoilers From The First Book**

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.

I give this 5/5 stars.
