Goodreads:  After coming back from death as Reboots and being trained by HARC as soldiers, Wren and Callum have finally escaped north, where they hope to find a life of freedom. But when they arrive at the Reboot Reservation, it isn't what they expected. Under the rule of a bloodthirsty leader, Micah, the Reboots are about to wage an all-out war on the humans. Although Wren's instincts are telling her to set off into the wilderness on their own and leave the battle far behind, Callum is unwilling to let his human family be murdered. When Micah commits the ultimate betrayal, the choice is made for them. But Micah has also made a fatal mistake . . . he's underestimated Wren and Callum.

Kritters Thoughts:  The second in a dualogy, so if you have not read book one, you may want to pause here and not read any further as spoilers may occur!

Ok.  So book two was different and I loved a few of the differences!  Unlike book one where Wren told the entire story, this book gives Callum a voice and the chapters alternate between Wren and Callum telling the story - I loved this!  I loved how Callum was able to provide a different voice and continue the story at certain times when Wren couldn't.  

The pacing in this book was different from book one.  For me, it was slower and denser than the first one and even at times a little confusing.  There were many groups taking sides and figuring out who hated whom and who was willing to work with whom took a little too much work for me.  I felt like the plot was way too full of fighting and such and I wanted more from the characters in this one.

I still loved the characters and the heart of the story, but this one wasn't as easy to read as the first one.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
