Title: Revolution 19
Author: Gregg Rosenblum
Publisher: Harper Teen
Publication Date: January 8, 2013
Twenty years ago, the robots designed to fight our wars abandoned the battlefields. Then they turned their weapons on us.
Only a few escaped the robot revolution of 2071. Kevin, Nick, and Cass are lucky —they live with their parents in a secret human community in the woods. Then their village is detected and wiped out. Hopeful that other survivors have been captured by bots, the teens risk everything to save the only people they have left in the world—by infiltrating a city controlled by their greatest enemies.
I didn’t think I would like this book as much as I did. I’ve been getting kind of tired of dystopians, and I really only read this book because I was auto-approved for the sequel, Fugitive X, on Edelweiss.
Revolution 19 was, for me, a quick, entertaining read with a lot of action to keep me hooked. While it may not be a work of literary prowess, it was fun and light. I liked all the characters and the multiple close third person perspectives, which I don’t always connect with. I also definitely started developing a bit of a crush on Nick by the end of the book.
If you’re looking for an easy, entertaining read, this is the book for you.
