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

Wren was silent.
She stood completely still next to me, staring straight ahead with that look she got sometimes, like she was either happy or plotting to kill someone. Either way, I loved that look.

That's the opening paragraph to Amy Tintera's final book in her Reboot duology, Rebel, and hell if it's not the perfect way to introduce us to Callum's point-of-view. Reboot was one of my favorite books last year, an exciting new take on "zombies" with thrilling action, a kickass

More than the sound of bones breaking, what I heard reading this was something like zzzZZZzzz...


This sequel is useless. It's so predictable that I feel as if I had read it even before reading it. Since finishing Reboot, I knew exactly how this was going to end: rebels who turn out to be not totally good, uprising, government down, happily ever after and blah blah can someone please explain me why I'm wasting my time here?

Well, that was fast 😂

I literally flew through this book, just like I did with the first one. However, the first one was definitely better than this one as Rebel seemed to be missing the spark that was present in Reboot. Although, this is what I've come to expect with duologies - often the second one isn't as good. But, overall this book was still good and I'm pretty happy with how everything wrapped up.

Really enjoyed this one even though it wasn't as good. I would definitely recommend this duo

Amy Tintera's Reboot is one of those rare dystopian series that are actually REALLY good. I've read multiple dystopian novels, and the Reboot Duology definitely stands near the top of my favourites.

While Reboot is narrated only by Wren, Tintera's sequel is narrated by both the main characters, Wren and Callum. And unlike some novels that have dual-perspectives, I could tell the difference between the two voices. Both are very distinct from the other and I lov
Reboot: 3 stars
Rebel: 3 stars

This book was enjoyable, the characters where likable, the plot is fast paced and there is a lot of action. But my problems with this book are actually quite the same as the previous book and I did think that it was a really weak ending.

Contains spoilers!

The beginning was kind of an anticlimax. The previous book ends with Wren and Callum finding the sign for the reboot territory and I mean that’s the perfect ending to have a super cool beginning. But the first 20% of

This finale to the Reboot series was an entertaining read. It was of similar quality to the first book in the series and shared most of the same strengths and weaknesses. The characters and their relationships are the main strength while the simplistic world building is the major weakness.

Wren and Callum may have escaped from the HARC facility but their problems are just beginning. The Reboot settlement is not what they were hoping it might be and its leader has a few unsettling plans and ideas

What I don't like about Reboot is the romance. What I mean is that it almost engulfed the plot and it was everywhere in the middle of the book. Though, I found it cute, it is still not okay to me. In this sequel, Rebel, the romance was just enough for me. It didn't affect or sweep away the main plot fortunately.

Rebel, matter-of-factly speaking, is really an enthralling read. It was action-packed, dark, full of tension that allure me to read, read and read. Even there's an element in the book th
5 Amazing Stars!! This book was all kinds of awesome!!


The year long waits in between these dystopians have caused me to lose interest in A LOT of them. Especially the trilogies. Most of the ones I've read had two already out so I read them back to back, and when it came time to read the third and final one, I found that I just didn't care about the worlds anymore and didn't feel any inclination to finish the books.

But not with Rebel! No second-thoughts on whether I actually cared about finishing

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: long live Amy Tintera! If you enjoyed her debut last year, you are going to love the sequel. Rebel is absolutely thrilling: the rapid pacing and impressive character development are just two of the things that make Tintera’s sophomore novel an absolute success.

Rebel is unputdownable from start to finish: strong plot, moral dilemmas and the wonderfully mature romance all perfectly entwined to create a breathlessly exciting read. While Reboot w

'Riley turned to us, an amused look on his face. “Are we done making out?'

<-- Me while reading both Reboot books. Minus the amused part.

Rebel was even worse than the first instalment. And the ending was fucking weak! I basically skim read the whole book, don't even know why since Reboot was already terrible. Plus there's even MORE romance in Rebel and it's so fucking annoying. There's nothing good or memorable about the duology.

4.5 Stars!

With Reboot being one of my most surprising reads of last year, there is no way in heck I could have resisted picking up the sequel, I just wasn't capable of saying no to it.

Reboot blew me away with just how much I loved it and to say I have been looking forward to Rebel is a huge understatement.

I knew going into this one that it might not be an easy read. Wren and Callum are two very different people and I just knew they would have their issues and problems because of it but I was ho
This one is worth all the stars. It was the perfect conclusion to this imaginative journey and I can't wait to be able to talk about it with everyone. (So, go get it as soon as you can so when can discuss.)

My full review will come closer to the publication date, but just know that you aren't going to want to miss out on this. I loved being in the heads of both Wren and Callum. I laughed out loud the whole way through, swooned a good bit, shed a few tears, and never could turn the pages quick eno
Few authors can write a strong sequel, and even fewer can leave us with a satisfying conclusion. Amy Tintera has mastered both of these arts.

A guide on how to write a good sequel:

✔ Add character development and make us root for these people even more. Make them sympathetic and memorable.

✔ Want to add another PoV? Make sure that the new voice adds something to the book and makes both narrators more dimensional and likable.
Callum’s perspective was refreshing and easy to distinguish from Wren’s.
Initial Thoughts: It took me a while to get through this book. It is not to say it is a bad book, I guess my attention lay elsewhere this past week. I did like Callum's character and despite his low designation, he was an apt tactician. I also liked watching Wren's character evolve. Lots of explosions, lots of hairy moments, there is plenty of action in this book to engage a young adult reader.

What a great conclusion. Action packed and full of twists and turns, but one thing held true - what Wren and Callum mean to each other. I think that was my favorite part.

But I also loved seeing Callum grow and show who he can become. I loved that he really challenged everyone's ideas and assumptions about what Callum's number meant.

Wren learned that her number doesn't define her either.

This was absolutely worth the wait.
This was a terrific follow-up, and I found it more entertaining than Reboot. I especially enjoyed having both Wren and Callum's POV. Overall, this was a solid YA/Dystopian and I'm glad to have finally experienced it.

Omg I liked this one so much better then first. The emotion is real people! I cried and then wanted to punch something!


It was THAT good.
Rebel by Amy Tintera is the sequel to Reboot. The story is told from alternating POVs, Callum and Wren's. I liked how the story was told from two different POVs, but there's no clear distinction between the two. I felt like Wren And Callum didn't show enough their own personality. Callum didn't show enough of his personality and I really like Callum. He had ton of potential for his "voice" to be heard, but sadly it wasn't heard. The story also leaves off just after the events in Reboot. Wren, Ca ...more

This was an amazing read. As it was my second time reading, I was trying to remember the story again as I first read this 3 years ago. I thought this lacked a bit from the first book, but it was still entertaining and engaging. The ending felt a bit rushed and I thought that the author could have had a better ending. I still thoroughly enjoyed the story and characters. I just thought Reboot was better. Overall, a fantastic read

Despite not being a fan of Reboot, Amy Tintera manged to surprise me. I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way.

Wren is still a boss and Callum finally found his own voice. Action scenes were great and those emotional ones weren't so far behind even though I didn't really care about the romance. I just wanted Wren and Callum to show everyone who's in charge.

Now I'm mentally kicking myself for not reading Rebel sooner.

Rebel was wonderfully written in dual point-of-views i.e of Wren and Callum. It was great to read that way. How completely different they were from each other. They was outstanding character development of Wren and Callum. Wren's a total kiskass! Love that! ;) All other new characters were amazing too.
Rebel is one of my favorite reads this year. And Reboot was one of my favorite reads of 2013. Amy Tintera, write more books!

This book took a turn i did not expect!

once again, so fast paced and easy to get through!

This book had a dual pov with Wren and Callum instead of just Wren which I really enjoyed. His perspective was extremely interesting to read after what happened in Reboot. Their relationship in the book was pretty cute too.

The plot was still a little underdeveloped though. I felt like things happened without any explanation and some of the side characters were kinda just thrown into the book.
The "final battle" was a little underwhelming since i
