Wren rebooted after being dead for 178 minutes. The reboots are controlled by HARC and used as soldiers to keep the humans under control. She is one of the strongest and most ruthless reboots and has never questioned all the people she has had to capture or kill over the years. But that all changes when she starts to train Caleb-22, a reboot that was dead for such a short amount of time that he still has many of his human traits and doesn't want to accept the way things are.

There were some elements of the story that didn't really add up and the writing had some flaws but it was a quick enough read that I was able to overlook a lot. It was also pretty violent so if that bothers you, you may want to steer clear. Readers who enjoyed Divergent may like this book, just be prepared for it to focus more on the inexplicable romance between the two main characters; mixed in with a lot of blood, pain, broken bones, and death.
