Goodreads Summary:

Five years ago, Wren Connolly was shot three times in the chest. After 178 minutes she came back as a Reboot: stronger, faster, able to heal, and less emotional. The longer Reboots are dead, the less human they are when they return. Wren 178 is the deadliest Reboot in the Republic of Texas. Now seventeen years old, she serves as a soldier for HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation).

Wren’s favorite part of the job is training new Reboots, but her latest newbie is the worst she’s ever seen. As a 22, Callum Reyes is practically human. His reflexes are too slow, he’s always asking questions, and his ever-present smile is freaking her out. Yet there’s something about him she can’t ignore. When Callum refuses to follow an order, Wren is given one last chance to get him in line—or she’ll have to eliminate him. Wren has never disobeyed before and knows if she does, she’ll be eliminated, too. But she has also never felt as alive as she does around Callum.

The perfect soldier is done taking orders.

My Rating: 4 Stars

My Thoughts:

This book takes place in a dystopian world where after people die they, Reboot. They come backing faster, stronger, more calculated, and with less emotions. The longer they’re dead the less human they are. Wren was dead for 178 minutes, the longest death of any of the Reboots. She is the perfect solider for the Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation. She always follows orders and hunts down any human she is assigned to bring into the HARC.

When the new Reboots are brought in for training she meets Callum. He was only dead for 22 minutes and is more human than any other Reboot. He never follows the orders and lets his emotions control him. When Wren agrees to train him she had no idea what she signed up for. She certainly never expected to fall for the adorable swoon-worthy Reboot who is less than serious, but he helps her to understand that she is a lot more human than she ever gave herself credit for.

Wren was an incredibly strong character and could certainly hold her own. She started off as a calculated Reboot that never questioned anything and thought of her self as emotionless but Callum worked his way into her head and heart and showed her differently. Callum himself was always so full of life and laughter. Together they were perfect and whatever one of them lacked the other had. Their romance was definitely a main part of the story but without it being ridiculously sappy and taking away too much from the rest of the book.

The plot and concept of the Reboots was a unique one that I loved right from the start. I feel like a lot of the dystopian books nowadays are very similar in concept and I had yet to read one quite like this. There was a time though while I was reading it wondering where in the world the story was going but the author pleasantly surprised me with all the turn of events and she certainly kept my interest the entire time. The ending left me quite satisfied by not having a huge cliffhanger but still left me highly anticipating the next one!

I recommend this for anyone looking for a new and fresh dystopia series!
