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 seventeen 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 is the worst she’s ever seen. As a 22, Callum Reyes is practically human. His reflexes are too slow, he’s always asking questions, and his ever-present smile is freaking her out. Yet there’s something about him she can’t ignore. 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 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.

Why the WOW: I'm digging this new take on zombies. Like zombie's cousin, where there is little more intelligence and a little less "Brains...nom-nom." Nothing like an always smiling newbie to restart dormant emotions! I've read some mixed reviews, but the overall consensus is that Reboot is a fun read. Sign me up.

And hello Republic of Texas, who doesn't see this in the possible future?

What are you waiting for?


  1. I already have this one on my to-read list and I'm really excited about it. I featured the book on my WOW post a while back so I can't wait!
    Great pick and I hope you enjoy reading it too.
    Come check out my WOW post.

  2. I heard about this for the first time the other day and I think it sounds really interesting. Great pick!

  3. Looks like a good bit of spaceship-less syfy, I like! :-)

  4. I can;t wait for this one either! I actually haven't read a zombie book before so this will be a new experience but I'm excited! Great pick!

    1. For a traditional-zombie book, you should try the Forest of Hands and Teeth trilogy! It was really good and creepy!

  5. I've heard some good things about I already and I'm very excited :D!
