Revolution 19 Review

272 pages
Release date: January 8th, 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.

Review (ARC):
This is an exciting and fast-paced mix of dystopian and science fiction. A world where robots have taken over and I must say that their reasons are even more fascinating. Kevin, Nick and Cass are all quite different despite having grown up the same way. Kevin is practically obsessed with technology despite the fear of robots that everyone has. Nick is the strong older brother who tries to keep his family protected at all costs. Cass is more of an enigma, she is strong and capable but also level-headed and intelligent as well. I have to admit that while I was reading this novel and found out more about the robots and the cities they controlled, I found myself a bit conflicted about whose side I was on. I appreciated the robots reasons, yet I can also understand the rebels need for freedom. Most of this novel takes place in the robot-controlled city and its interesting to see the changes there. The ending is a cliffhanger so I can't wait to see what happens in the next novel. This novel isn't hard-core sci-fi so as long as you don't expect that I would definitely recommend it as a great read.
