Reboot - Amy Tintera ★★★★ 1/2

I saw this book as one of the Goodreads.com First Reads contest giveaways and I was little hesitant to enter it because I wasn't sure if I would like the plot of the story, but I entered it anyway.

And I won.

And surprisingly, glad I did win.

In what we know as Texas, a virus is wiping out most of the young population. Sort of. When someone contracts this virus, they die and then they wake up; As a Reboot. The longer they are dead, the less human they feel. The longer they are dead, the more powerful they are as a Reboot. They are then taking to a facility that trains them, feeds them and excepts them to do their dirty work.

Wren Connolly, died for 178 minutes. She is the facilities best weapon and only trains the highest numbered reboots. That is until Callum Reyes, a "22" comes to the facility. He is the youngest (only dead for 22 minutes before he rebooted) that has passed through the facility in a while and no one excepts to live passed a week. Wren takes on Callum but when she fails she is ordered to take Callum out. She has a choice to make, either dispose of Callum or escape with Callum so he lives.

This isn't like all the typical zombie apocalypse books out there in the way that they are still human. Some still feel, laugh, cry, while others don't. I liked how even Wren, a 178, starts to feel. The book itself seemed like a quick read, but towards the ending of the book I expected a little more. Things just seemed to easy. I do look forward to reading the second book in the series when it comes out though.

4 1/2 stars.
