The Branch is in shambles, but Anna, Sam, Cas, and Nick can't rest easy. Remnants of the organization lurk unseen, and the flashbacks of their old lives are only getting stronger--especially Nick's.

Following scattered memories and clues from his Branch file, Nick sets off alone in search of answers--and the girl who haunts his dreams. But the sleepy town where she lives is

When I first started reading this and realized that Anna and Nick were NOT going to end up together, I was all like:

Then, as I went on, I noticed something: I actually LIKED Elizabeth. So I let it go and just enjoyed the awesomeness that accompanied being inside Nick's beautiful head. When I finished the book, I was okay for about two seconds before I realized that this was the"last" one!

Not okay! What about Riley?! What about Trev, Cas, and Chloe? Don't they des

"...Nick sets off alone in search of answers and in search of the girl who haunts his dreams."

So this means there will be a new character whose role is to be Nick's love interest and it's not going to be Anna? :( I don't know, man... Should I still bother picking it up? Having a new character appear to play a lead role at the last book of the trilogy doesn't sound much of a good idea.

Gahhh! I hope this alternating POV isn't a sign that Anna will die.

Also, even if the au

This book! Oh this book! To say I’m a huge cheerleader of the Altered series is basically an understatement. When I first read Altered I was blown away by it and still think it is one of the most underrated books out there. Read it people! Read it! And then I read Erased and I was 100% hooked. There was something special about these boys, Sam, Cas, Trev and Nick, and Anna. I wanted to learn more about all of them. We learned about Sam in Altered and Anna in Erased. But we also got a deeper glimp ...more

Oh my god, I can't wait!
But oh my god, people. What the hell is this nonsense with Anna and Nick? She's suppose to end up with Sam damn it! It's not that I don't like Nick, it's just that Anna and Sam is perfect for each other. Jennifer, if you let Nick be with Anna, I'm gonna cry! I've never liked triangles, they're so fucking awful. So Jennifer, don't you dare start now.

Please don't make Anna with Nick!! If that happens then I'm gonna kick some butt!

Sometimes, my reading preference is highly irregular and mostly, sporadic. A mystery/suspense book like this has to catch me on a good day; a day when I’m in need of something that elevates my heart rate without moving off the couch. This book certainly had its moments. But it wasn’t nearly as suspenseful as the first two books. Regardless, it was still a satisfactory instalment featuring Nick. He was every bit as mysterious and cranky as I remembered him to be: troublemaker, brusque and slightl ...more

I was so worried that Erased was the final book. It was so short!!! There was no cliff hanger!
I am so happy to hear that there's a 3rd book because I need more Sam, Nick, Cas and Anna in my life. They're like some of the best characters ever.

Update: Jan 25, 2015: I read the book.

Reborn is the finale to the Altered Saga, with the exception of an upcoming e-novella. Instead of Anna’s perspective, we get Nick’s and a girl named Elizabeth. It’s definitely different and unexpected. The previous boo

Personally, I'm rooting for Nick, but I feel that despite the connection and feelings Anna and Nick shared in the past, so far, we've only ever seen Anna love Sam. Not once has she expressed any romantic feelings for Nick in the present day. I agree, she does love him, but I feel now it's more familial love than anything else. If they do end up together, it would feel forced and contrived, unless something BIG happens.
However, based on the synopsis for Nick's POV, it seems that he might fall fo

I honestly don't know what to say. I've been looking for an action/thriller series for a while now and this is it. This is the series. I still have to read the novellas (Betrayed, Forged and Played, I believe) but... wow. That was one hell of a ride.

This book was about Nick. As much as I want a whole frigging 300 book series on Cas (he's so cute, isn't he? 8'D), I do have to admit that this book was so freaking amazing with his point of view. It was amazingly structured and I loved the

Reborn will probably be one of the year's biggest disappointments for me. Not only have I enjoyed the first two books in the series, about genetically altered teenage boys, but knowing this focused on one character in particular made my expectations skyrocket. Nick - quiet, brooding, lethal Nick - has always stood out to me; there was just something about him that made me want to know more. Most of his past had yet to be explored, and I desperately wanted to know why he was so angry, what made h ...more

Well it was a nice addition especially because we get to read Nick's story but it still didn't answer the overall question as to why they altered these teens in the first place.

I really can't explain how much I love this series. I didn't hesitate to read it and I have no regrets. Jennifer Rush has really outdone herself with this series! I cannot praise it enough!!

I love Sam and his protectiveness, I love Cas and his Happy-Go-Luckyness, and I love Nick for his grumpy, softieness. And I am happy that Trev is back, (on probation) Because I did love the way he treated Anna like a sister in the first book Altered.

Now I know this book is about Nick, but I just feel that I s

Okay - in general I'm a really nice reader.
If I didn't enjoy a book I usually don't feel the need to share my opinion with everyone ...
I rate the book and move on, starting the next book. I don't like to ramble about how much I hated some of the characters, the storyline or the writing style. It's just not what I do.

Today's the day everything changes 'cause this book was so terrifically bad, that I want to say a few things.
Also: please excuse my language but this just makes me super angry.

Okay I am pissed now.

Bravo Ms. Rush, for turning me against one of my favorite series.

I wanted to know Nick's story, by which I mean his past, not his now, where he goes after a girl because he has to know he hasn't killed her (Really Nick, really? You've killed hundred others and knowing this one girl wasn't killed by your hands will give you salvation? Mindfreak!).

This is a freaking filler book. I absolutely detest filler books. Nothing even happens for the first 70% of the book, other than th
Jan 21, 2015 rated it liked it be honest, this book wasn't bad, but I was so completely and totally disappointed I don't even know what to say. I am trying to be fair in my rating, the author has every right to write the story she wants, wasn't the story I wanted. At all. And Nick...I had moments of true disgust. Not that he had to be perfect, hell I think that's why I liked him the moment I met him, he was rude and surly and suspicious, totally my kind of guy. I was not happy with the direction this story to ...more
I love this book and I love Jennifer Rush! This one is told in two POV's: Nick and Elizabeth. Nick goes searching for this girl who he keeps having flashbacks about and there ends up being so much action toward the end of the book in particular. I didn't know who to trust, who was good and who was bad. I doubted Chloe, Sarah, Trev, and others. I won't tell you why or what the end result was.

We learn a lot about Nick and Elizabeth's childhood. Neither had a good childhood. From Nick's father bea

I really want Anna with Nick! I had never feel the connection between Sam and Anna to be honest, and she has a past with Nick.

These books keep getting better and better! Each one is filled with more action scenes than the last book, but when will these guys finally destroy the Branch and move on with their lives.

I was actually disappointed by this book. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't what I was expecting.

Nick has been having flashbacks of a past he can't remember. All featuring a girl covered in blood. Nick is wondering who the girl is and if the Branch made him hurt her, or worse, so he heads out to look for her.
Elizabeth is haunted by a kidnapping that happened to her years ago, and ended in the death of her

I wanted to love this because I love Nick, but ultimately I couldn't stand Elizabeth. So ... Yeah. It killed the book for me. And it just didn't feel like this book was part of the series.

I still love Jenn Rush and will try anything she writes, but this one didn't work for me.
