From the fingers of Michael Grant:

"BZRK Reloaded is even better than BZRK. There are scenes in there that made me laugh at the sheer unbridled strangeness and intensity."


Review originally posted at Book Probe Reviews.

Where art thouBZRK Apocalypse? A year (or who knows how long?) away, that's where!

It feels as though every Michael Grant book I read becomes a mistress of mine, with Fear andLight being my two wives, who have no idea I'm madly in love with both of t...more

I had kept BZRK on my To Read list for a while, so when I got access to an ARC galley from the publisher, I pushed myself to go ahead and check it out of the library to read. I love sci fi novels and while BZRK was inherently nothing special, it was interesting enough to get me into the this sequel.

This sequel, however, was similar to an English homework reading assignment. It seems as if it took me ages to read, and I kept pu...more

BZRK reloaded by Michael Grant takes place in an alternate present day. Teenagers are the soldiers in this. These teenagers are like Romans with nanotechnology. The main focus of this book is on the NYC cell of BZRK. They are being tracked down by people who want them dead. There are many characters that are just phenomenal.

To sum up the book in one word... Awesome. I'm a nanotech fan so this book was good regardless. Beyond the the tech the characters where great. The plot had its good point an...more
Potential spoilersSsSsSs.

Down in the meat...(As the twitchers say)


I like how we've got Vincent, Nijinsky, Plath, Keats, Wilkes and they're all BZRK pipur but the characteristics are so different from one another. You have the leader whose gone insane, the gay male model who's pushed into being a Number One and he's not enjoying it, the privilege girl planning to run away with the poor boy, the badass maniac with her heh heh heh. (view spoiler)...more
Michael Grant succeeds yet again, in 'BZRK Reloaded', the sequel to his new trilogy. Considering I was baffled by and a little unsure of the first instalment, this sequel definitely doesn't fall below par, and blew all my preconceptions of disappointment out the window.

In classic Grant fashion, this novel manages to be smart, funny, controversial and emotional all at once. He has a talented ability to sucker-punch his readers again and again, and he definitely had me with my mouth gaping open in...more
This is the second book to BZRK. They absolutely must be read in order or you'll be very confused and your brain will turn to mush. They are also so awesome you'll have a literary hangover for days where nothing else sounds good and you can't stop thinking about the characters. I was honestly a little nervous about this one. BZRK was so good and so action-packed, I didn't think the sequel could possibly live up to it, but it did. It's possibly even more amazing than the first. If you're looking...more

I immediately ordered this after reading the 1st book, this gets even better, nice setup for the 3rd and final book, which comes out next month, can't wait.

More world building and character development in this book and less descriptions of 'being in the meat' which did get a little long winded in the 1st book.

What works so well in this book is the chapters are divided into different characters perspectives which keeps it interesting, mysterious. Adding more characters has really taking this trio...more
This book was really hard to read. None of the characters made good decisions, and ultimately it starts making you question humanity. The world is just as insanely cool as it was the first one, and I was no less engrossed by that aspect. However, I still find certain relationship's to be dry(ones that aren't mean to be) and certain characters, I felt, were introduced and were meant to have a significant role, but didn't provide much to the story. I think the greatest example of this in the book...more
Scifi is rapidly becoming something I actually least in certain doses. LOL I fell in love with Grant's GONE series and and followed him into the Adam and Eve book and then BZRK. Grant may have opened my eyes to a whole new genre to explore. :-)
Often, an author begins with a bang but over the course of a series, the quality of his story deteriorates. Not so here. The second of the BZRK series easily equalled the beauty, the fast-paced insight of the first. This series is one of the best out there!
I loved every minute of this book.
i love the way Michael Grant narrates.
So many things happened and there is not a single character I dislike reading about.
I don't know how am I supposed to wait until who-knows-when for the next book

A few minor spoilers lie within if you haven't read the first instalment, BZRK.

A Spoiler Free Bit About The Book

BZRK is left shaken after their last battle against Bug Man and the Armstrong Twins. Vincent is crazy and Ophelia is even worse. How will BZRK face up against Bug Man without their best twitcher and leader, Vincent? And how can Plath face that she didn't kill the evil Armstrong twins while she had the chance?

My Review

I was wary when I picked this up. I felt that the original BZRK was a...more
It took me a while to get into BZRK, and Reloaded more than made up for the time it took me to get attached to this story. The end of the second book has made the wait for the next installment almost painful.

love it so much. great book for teens. I have always loved his humour in his book. he doesnt mess up his books and characters. all characters r unique in their own ways and i just looove how each one of them acts. every one of them have their individual characteristics and I am amazed at him creating this whole bunch of unusual stuffs. I also just love how he can control his book so well like when this character comes up and so on. I love it as much as bzrk and I really do recommend it to teens...more
Nějak se mi nedařilo pořádně se začíst. A to i přesto, že tahle knížka je fakt "MASO".

AH~ A cover! I love how this matches the paperback of BZRK but I wish they had kept with BZRK's hardcover theme.

Единственото произведение за нанороботи, което ми беше направило впечатление досега беше разказа "Сафари" от Чарлс Шефилд.
Книгата "БЗМЦ: Презареждане" от Майкъл Грант е доста по-мащабна и по-внушителна откъм идеи. Романът е класифициран като антиутопия. Аз бих добавил, че поджанрът на тази книга е апокалиптичен киберпънк. В "БЗМЦ: Презареждане" има много убийства, самоубийства и хора, които под влиянието на различни фактори желаят да унищожат света.
Интересното в това четиво е, че по-голямата час...more

Sequels are hard. Like really, really hard. Almost never does a sequel feel like the first of the series; it's almost always a disappointment.

Such is not the case BZRK: Reloaded.
Though the characters become fewer in number, the existing ones are developed well given the fast-paced battle/romance/horror story stuff that is going on around them.

It had the same charm and humor ( I'm a sucker for the Downton abbey and hunger Games references. and that @horse_ebooks epigraph was the best) as the firs...more

Not as good as the first, in my opinion. A bit disappointed actually...
Despite having gone quite awhile since reading BZRK I still snatched this up when I saw it on NetGalley hoping it would be some nice entertainment.It was entertaining but not much else sadly.Gone is the thought provoking edge of your seat story that I've come to expect from Michael Grant.Instead just gross descriptions of skin cells,a plot that basically amounts to nobody's good and so despicableness is obviously the solution,and some tepid drama.However it was still enjoyable enough and en...more
Wow! This was a pretty awesome sequel to the first book.

This book is an instant continuation to the first book so it was really cool to marathon them because practically no time passed between the events at the end of the first book and the beginning of this book.

The main comments I have about this book is Grant's detail in his writing. The way he describes the "nano" world under our skin is both disgusting and mesmerizing and I love every bit of it. I also really enjoyed the growth in the numbe...more
The first book in the series, BZRK, was a true thrill ride: nanobots, biotech, mass murder, espionage (both political and industrial), good vs. evil, and a hit of romance. The book ended with the failure of the BZRK mission: to stop the Armstrong brothers, Charles and Benjamin, conjoined twins who want to make the world a perfect place through technological enslavement.

BZRK Reloaded is even better.

The book picks up where the previous book left off. Having failed in their mission, the BZRK group...more
Du darfst nicht schlafen. Niemandem vertrauen. Keinen in deine Nähe lassen. Schon die sanfteste Berührung bedeutet den sicheren Tod. Denn sie sind überall. Um uns … IN uns. Bist du einmal infiziert, kontrollieren sie dich … bis in den Tod. Die Armstrong-Zwillinge wollen die Gleichschaltung aller Menschen, die absolute Kontrolle – ihre Handlanger sind ebenso wahnsinnig wie skrupellos. Und Plath kleiner Sieg im Tower war teuer erkauft: die halbe BZRK-Mannschaft ist am Boden, Vincent steht kurz vor...more
I was shocking surprise that I enjoyed BZRK Reloaded as much as I did. It was definitely a step up from the sequel in every aspect. Book one turned out to be a disappointment for me, but consider how much I love Michael Grant as an author, I had to give the sequel a chance and I'm glad I did. I found this to be extremely fast paced and action packed. I finished reading it in a day and could not put the book down. I felt like the book didn't drag on and now I am very excited for the released of t...more
I received BZRK Reloaded from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Netgalley, EgmontUSA, and Michael Grant.

Wow. This book was pure craziness! But for me, it was craziness in a good way. While I enjoyed BZRK, it took me much longer than usual to read. BZRK Reloaded took much less time for me to read. Perhaps because I was now deeply invested in the storylines and characters and was no longer confused about any of the terminology, as I sometimes was frustrated with while reading B...more

It has been a while since I read the first book in the BZRK series, but I was able to remember most of what happened with the help of some explaining in this book. Although I forgot the characters and some of the plot, I remembered that I really enjoyed the prequel so I was excited when I was approved for a galley on Netgalley.

Even though this book is about 432 pages, I read it really quickly. I flew through it in a day or two. There was one moment when I was reading it and I realized why I lov...more
Der Krieg geht in die zweite Runde, denn es ist noch lange nicht vorbei. Keats und Plath - zwei der Twitcher von BZRK - fangen langsam an, sich damit abzufinden, dass sie irgendwann als Wahnsinnige enden werden - so wie Vincent, der seinen Biot und damit seinen Verstand verloren hat. Und keiner kann ihnen garantieren, dass die Biots - eine Verlängerung ihrer selbst - gegen die maschinellen Nanobots gewinnen können. Trotzdem setzen sie alles daran den Kampf fortzuführen, auch wenn alles gegen sie...more
wow I mean wow. This book sure does show a interesting view of what can be done with nanotechnology and the dangers if it gets in the wrong hands.

Vincent i feel for. Poor guy is going mad and than is living within his mind once they wire him. Bug Man is just freaky and has some major insecurities. I see though or at least I think that him and Vincent have a past together that is driving him to revenge.

the Armstrong twins there are no words they will send chills up and down your spine. And the...more

I was born in a manger and grew up in a log cabin where I read law books by firelight. . . Oh, wait, that wasn't me, that was someones else.

I had a hard childhood. Hard for my parents. Not that bad for me. I was an Army brat, moved around a lot. Then I didn't settle down. I just kept moving. Why? What inner turmoil drove me? Mmmm, I gotta say none. I just have a short attention span. Easily bored...more
