Who is Fugitive X? Is it Nick with his robotic eye? Is it Kevin with his ability to work with technology with little formal training and his connection to Dr. Winston (the Father of Modern Robotics)? I think we can safely say it’s not Cass since she was basically used as bait by the Senior Advisor to catch Fugitive X. We know that the Senior Advisor wants Fugitive X because he feels he is the only one that can break the code that will allow them to replicate themselves. By the end of this book y ...more

Protagonists: At the beginning of Fugitive X, siblings Nick, Cass, and Kevin are torn from each other and each begins a journey of self discovery. Much like the last installment, this book is broken up into separate third-person perspectives each one following a different sibling's POV. What sets this installment apart from the last is that for a majority of the book each chapter continues a different story. However, this

"Fugitive X" is the thrilling, and fast-paced sequel to "Revolution 19" set in a world where high-tech robots have revolted against their masters, taken over the cities and imprisoned humanity. After fleeing their city and eluding capture Nick, Kevin and Cass are struggling to find the safe haven of Freepost. Rebelling against his brother's leadership, Kevin ignores Nick's warning and goes looking for water only to be kidnapped by two strange bots lurking in the woods. Separated from Nick and Ca ...more
I read an ARC of Revolution 19 quite some time ago. It was one of my favorite books of 2013. Even though it's been several years since I've read Revolution 19, I wanted to continue with the series, so I picked up Fugitive X. I didn't enjoy it as much as Revolution 19, but it was still good. I didn't find this book as action packed as the first one, which made it boring at times. There was a lot of dialogue and politics going on, which I didn't enjoy nearly as much.

I haven’t read a dystopian book in a while, so I picked this one up.

Plot: This story picks up where the last book left off and the reader is up for lots of actions. Once again, they are on the run. Nick, Kevin and Cass are up for some tough times. I think this book depicts the future of this world well. Everything is painted nice for the reader to understand and see. I have to admit that every time they got close to the camps or drones, geeze, I got nervous. There are lot of plot twist so you wi

The book Fugitive X by Gregg Rosenblum is a book filled with action and suspense. The book revolves around the concept that robots take over the world. One man makes a mistake while developing the robots, and these robots overthrow humanity, the robots re-educate humans, kill them and brainwash them. Most of the humans in the world have run away into "free-posts" where the humans shelter and rebel against the robots. The protagonists of the story are Kevin and Nick, along with their sister calle ...more

I fully endorse and recommend the book, Fugitive X written by Gregg Rosenblum because of its excellent examples of what siblings are like to have, their fighting and how they can come together as a family, eventful suspense with almost being caught many times over, emotion of hatred and frustration between bots and humans, the list of intriguing questions along the way, and the bountiful description mixed between lines.
Having known what it is like to have siblings, Rosenblum brings these chara

Great sequel! I was a little nervous when Gregg decided to split up Nick, Kevin and Cass but I got used to it and enjoyed it. I really liked getting to focus on Kevin and Cass, specifically, separate from Nick and get to learn more about them. I can’t wait for City 1 and I’m so sad it’s the last book

*My Thoughts*

Fugitive X just happened to be the last book I choose to read in 2013. I guess it is a hopeful sign that 2014 will be another good year of reading since I managed to read over 380 books without giving up on any of them! HOORAH! Fugitive X, the second installment in the Revolution 19 trilogy, is a young adult dystopian novel set in a future where humans are the prey, and robots are the hunters. It features siblings Nick (17), Cass (15) and Kevin (13) a

I consider this book a big lesson in the real world. They never give up and and they fight for what they believe even when they are so tired, a very inspiring. A strength in this book is when they bring in more characters, it adds more to the story because new plots arise making the story way more interesting. I don't really see a weakness in this story because it just gets better and better. This is a part of a series called Revolution 19 which is also the name of the first book. It's a really ...more
2.5/5 stars

I really enjoyed Revolution 19, the first book in the series, despite having some issues with the lack of world building and with the author's writing style.

I have to say I was quite disappointed by Fugitive X. While I was still interested, I didn't find myself quite as engaged as I was in the previous novel. This book just fell really flat for me. The writing style still felt a bit on the simplistic side and the abrupt transitioning did not improve. We are also introduced to a lot o

Oh my goodness. It is just breaking my heart to tell you all that I DNF’d this book. I read the first book in the series, Revolution 19, last year, and I LOVED it! It was off the charts amazeballs. But Fugitive X just didn’t reach the level that Revolution 19 did. It was choppy, bland, and the characters were not nearly as loveable and unique as they were in Revolution 19.

My main issue with Fugitive X was that it was wayyyyy too choppy an

This series continues to disappoint me, yet I still read it. I keep on hoping it’s going to turn into the Terminator, but it never does. The characters aren’t all that interesting, except maybe Kevin. The world building is kind of interesting. Some of the robots are kind of like androids, others are floating orb or walking robots. There’s technology and cities and there’s the wilds and Freeposts.

To see my full review:

This is an interesting look at the concept of machines taking over the world. Following three siblings as they find themselves separated at the onset of the novel, readers learn the ins and outs of life in a world where bots control everything and humans are confined to rejuvenation cells until their minds no longer remember the truth of man versus machine. With one sibling transported back in the city for rejuvenation, one held again

The fight for freedom continues.

In the exciting sequel to REVOLUTION 19, Nick, Cass, and their little brother Kevin are separated by warring forces in a dystopian world controled by robots. Nick ends up with a group of hostile rebels. Cass is captured and reeducated by the bots. Kevin is indoctrinated into a hidden encampment in the forest known as The Island, where he discovers secrets about the origin of the bots, and about his family.

Before going into this book I was really nervous about what direction this series was going to go. The first book Revolution 19 was one of my most anticipated books of 2013, but after reading it I was extremely disappointed. There was no world building, the characters constantly switching view points made it extremely difficult to connect with them. Also Gregg's writing style just wasn't one of my favorites. So when I was approved to read and review this for HarperTeen, I was excited and nervous ...more

Gregg Rosenblum’s Revolution 19 series takes the concept of artificial intelligence taking over the world into a whole different level. In this futuristic war between humans and robots, surviving is certainly a tough task to do. Siblings Nick, Kevin, and Cass have always relied on each other in this now deadly world. Their lives are dealt with a curveball and are separated when robot soldiers attack them. And they were attacked for a reason. Who is exactly Fugitive X that the robots are trying c ...more

Fugitive X starts immediately where the first one left off. Nick, Kevin, and Cass have managed to escape the city but weren't able to save their parents. They are headed to the nearest freepost to try and reunite with their friends. There they hope to figure out a way back into the city and stage some sort of rebellion.

All of the kids end up getting separated soon after the start. After Nick is separated from the group Cass is injured and on the brink of death and Kevin has no choice but to leav

This book was an action packed thrill ride that keeps the reader hooked from the start. I love books that have robots that have taken over and are just a little creepy. The world the author creates is sadly one I can see happening as robots become smarter and decide they want to be in charge. The bond that the author created between the siblings was one of such trust,honesty and loyalty and I loved every minute of it. I loved that we also got to see them all separated and that they were able to ...more

As much as I liked Revolution 19, with all the excitement, danger, and action, Fugitive X left a lot to be desired. I’m guessing this book is suffering from “second book syndrome” because it just wasn’t as engaging or entertaining as the first one. It’s more of a filler. While I did enjoy seeing the siblings separated, discovering more about themselves and the world around them, there wasn’t much to it.

While each storyline had its merit, Kevin’s seemed to be the main focus. He is the tech-wise c

Fugitive x takes us where Revolution 19 ended with Nick, Cass and Kevin navigating their way through the forests trying to meet up with their allies. Along the way Kevin is taken to what seems like a secure location by a friendly bot, leaving Nick and Cass behind. In the aftermath of this Nick and Cass are attacked and Cass nearly dies until Nick allows her to be taken by a bot to the City as her only hope of survival. Meanwhile, Nick joins up with the rebels.

I had some issues with Revolution 19
Still a really quick read, but totally enjoyable. I didn't like it as much as the first one, but I'm still really into it and can't wait to read the last novel in the trilogy.

Nick was super-annoying. I really hated him. The only thing that made his bits worth it were Farryn and Lexi.

Kevin was ok, but his POVs kinda suck purely on the fact that he's so young. I'm really dumb and totally didn't see The Governor being the doctor they were looking for, nor the fact that he was their grandfather. Tot

Not sure but I hardly saw a change from the first book, in the sequel Fugitive X. The writing is still that of a screenplay for a TV/Movie and the chapters are all in the three point of views of Nick, Cass and Kevin and like the first here too, there are no smooth transitions as we abruptly shift from one perspective to another. And it still lacks details that are necessary for the world building in the case of post-apocalyptic

As I mentioned in my comments about the first book in this series, my age puts me outside the YA demographic that this book fits in. Some might say that this would disqualify any comments I might make. Maybe, but I feel that good writing should hold some appeal for all age groups able to comprehend the subject matter.

Rosenblum does better in the second book of the series addressing some of the moral and ethical situations presented in the main plot. Yet, many of them were unresolved at the end o
