“I still have the scars from when they captured me and beat me in the middle of the street.”
“You don’t get scars.”
“Emotional scars then.”
Wren Connolly thought she’d left her human side behind when she dies five years ago and came back 178 minutes later as a Reboot. With her new abilities of strength, speed, and healing—along with a lack of emotions—Wren 178 became the perfect soldier for HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation). Then Callum 22 came along and changed everything.
Now that they’ve both escaped, they’re ready to start a new life in peace on the Reboot reservation. But Micah 163, the Reboot running the reservation, has darker plans in mind: to wipe out the humans. All of them. Micah has been building a Reboot army for years and is now ready to launch his attack on the cities. Callum wants to stick around and protect the humans. Wren wants nothing more than to leave all the fighting behind them.
With Micah on one side, HARC on the other, and Wren and Callum at odds in the middle, there’s only one option left…
It’s time for Reboots to become rebels.
“Maybe you need to take a look at who I am, instead of who you wish I were.”
“I sort of liked the sound of bones breaking. It was like home.”
“You could’ve at least let me know you weren’t dead by the way. I was actually kind of sad about that.”
“That’s a pretty incredible sentiment, coming from you.”
“Her smile faded to a more serious expression. “Is everything okay? With Callum?”
“Fine,” I said, taking a bite of meat and avoiding her eyes.
“He’s crazy about you, you know,” she said softly, like I hadn’t just told her things were fine. “I see other girls looking at him sometimes, and he doesn’t even notice. He only sees you.”
“Why is everyone hugging you? I asked.
I don’t know. I’m likeable?”
“Only for a minute. I’ll be right back.” He plopped the baby in her lap and hopped to his feet. Wren held her at arm’s length and frowned. She did not appreciate that, because she immediately began wailing.
“Here,” Wren said, thrusting her in my direction. “Take the mutant baby.”
“I probably love you,” she said. I let out a surprised laugh. “Probably?” She laced our fingers together and tugged me toward the shuttle, glancing over her shoulder. “Probably. It’s hard to tell with me, you know?” I laughed again. “I probably love you, too.”
“I plan, you do the punching people in the face part.”
“Some of the Reboots were gazing at her with such awe and excitement that I wanted to slap them and tell them to stop being weird.”
“He made disgusted noises every time I touched him, so I fell entirely against him. He yelled and I ended up on the floor. It was not my most well-thought-out plan.”
