Publisher's 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 17 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 - Callum Reyes - is the worst she's ever seen. As a 22, Callum is practically human. His reflexes are too slow, he's always asking questions, and his ever-present smile is freaking her out. Yet, he's still her newbie. 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 that 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.

    "Weak characterization unmakes the story."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I wouldn't recommend this book. The characters behave in odd and illogical ways even within the context of the story. This really holds the story back which otherwise has an interesting premise.


    What about Khristine Hvam’s performance did you like?

    Very good differentiation of characters.

    Story
    "Heart-racing, action packed - I'm ready for more!"

    My first thought after finishing this book (in one sitting): WHAT JUST HAPPENED?

    Unlike anything I’ve read in the past few months, Reboot was so gripping and thrilling that I was unable to put it down until it was done. I found myself flying through the pages, racing to the end and at the same time, not wanting it to end. I mean, just – WOW.

    In post-apocalyptic Texas (every other state in America was destroyed due to a virus), reboots are teenagers who come back to life after dying and are then given to the government as bounty hunters except the reboots don’t actually get anything out of it. Ugh, can you imagine following every single order, always listening to someone else, never getting what you want to do – especially as a teenager? Yuck!

    What I thought most about during this book (and what frustrated me) was how these reboots are treated so..inhumanly – not only by the government, but by their [former] families. Not an ounce of pity or kindness was given to these teens. Supposedly these reboots don’t feel any emotion, but do you think they act emotionless because of their situation or because that’s how they really are? I mean, if I was treated poorly and like an animal, I would probably just act emotionless out of a survival/defense mechanism.

    Which brings me to Callum, sweet Callum. A 22, and such a endearing boy. From the very first scene, I was drawn to his sweet disposition. Every scene with him is filled with this tension – you want to protect him, you want him to grow, you want him to kick butt even though you know he’s a 22. For some reason, he reminded me a lot of Four from Divergent by Veronica Roth. I think it was their kind hearts and adoration they held for their girls.

    Reboot is one that fans of Divergent are going to want to pick up for sure. It’s heart-racing, action packed, and had me begging for more.

    "Glued to it from the start"

    I loved the way Wren had to learn what the feelings she felt on the inside were called.

    "Chick flick for the ears"

    Definitely a YA novel. Light enjoyable listen. Don't think too hard about the concept of "re-booting". You will just hurt your head. Suspend your disbelief and go along for the ride. I will listen to the next one in the series. This is like "ear candy" lol. Don't expect vitamins or substance and you will be entertained.

    "Originality will get you far"
    What about Khristine Hvam’s performance did you like?

    Hvam's performance of Reboot was the best I've listened to so far. She does a great job drawing you into the story. I loved it and I can't imagine anyone else for this audio book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This was the first book I listened to on audible and I couldn't put it down. I was listening to it everywhere...in the car while driving, at the store, and even on my down time at work.


    Any additional comments?

    Tintera developed a world that was gripping and the scary thing about her world is how realistic it seems. I could see the same things happenig if people were to reboot today. Rebooting is basically coming back to life after you die. The longer you are gone the less human you are when you come back. The main character Wren was gone for 178 minutes. She doesn't feel much and she's very devoted to her work. She works as a weapon for a company that takes out the criminals in the remaining worlds. When a 22 comes in, Wren is determined to see if her bad ass training skills can keep him alive. It of course has a lot more going on then that, but that is the basic story. Great character development, great story, great idea, great everything. I highly recommend it!
