Goodreads Summary:

Wren Connolly thought she’d left her human side behind when she dies five years ago and came back 178 minutes later as a Reboot. With her new abilities of strength, speed, and healing—along with a lack of emotions—Wren 178 became the perfect soldier for HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation). Then Callum 22 came along and changed everything.

Now that they’ve both escaped, they’re ready to start a new life in peace on the Reboot reservation. But Micah 163, the Reboot running the reservation, has darker plans in mind: to wipe out the humans. All of them. Micah has been building a Reboot army for years and is now ready to launch his attack on the cities. Callum wants to stick around and protect the humans. Wren wants nothing more than to leave all the fighting behind them.

With Micah on one side, HARC on the other, and Wren and Callum at odds in the middle, there’s only one option left…

It’s time for Reboots to become rebels.

My Review:

This was an excellent ending to this fun series. There is a certain character named Riley who Wren meets up with, who was the one who originally trained her. He was awesome! Also, what I love is no love triangle!

Wren and Callum were both so awesome! What I appreciate from Tintera is how she writes her characters. I tend to get annoyed with main characters easily, and I never felt that way with either of these two. Plus, Tintera knows how to write in humor well, even in books that have dark aspects. It rocks!

Besides the romance being swoony, the book was action packed! There was some interesting things we find out when Wren and Callum hit up the Reboot camp. I don’t want to give anything away! All I want to say is this series was great! I also can’t wait to read the conclusion to her other series (Ruined) later this year!

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 Review:

This book was pretty awesome, so some of these people once they die, they reboot and come back to life. It’s sort of like zombies, but they aren’t really zombies.

Now, if you are under a #60 (60 minutes or less of being dead), HARC gives these reboots a shot to up their aggression, so they aren’t as human. The problem is that they are becoming too much zombie-like, because HARC is trying to get the dose right.

Wren was an awesome character, she was ruthless at first, reminding me of Nemesis in the Diabolic. Callum was sweet and wanted to hold on to his humanity as long as possible. The romance in this was excellent!

“With the way the guy was shaking, I could take his gun, break his neck, and dance on the body in two seconds flat.”

The action was great, and there were tons of bloody scenes that kept me saying “heck yeah!” I can’t wait to read the next book!
