Gosh, it’s so hard to start reviews sometimes. I just don’t know what to say! So I’ll just jump right in. The idea for Reboots was really great, and I feel like Tintera finished off the great idea with a great love story, story line, and writing. The romance and action swirled together perfectly, but to be honest the book seemed kind of pointless. I would have liked a bit more world building and explanation about the relationship between Reboots and humans. This book was kind of like Divergent for me, in that it was kind of pointless, and most of the book was focused on romance and training or initiation. I did enjoy the story and the action and romance, and the ending especially, but the middle was just kind of a fill-in. There weren’t any major twists and the story was just simple. But enjoyable.
Even with the simple story, these characters were FREAKING AWESOME! I loved Wren’s character. She was so messed up, and I loved how Callum, the love interest, came in and changed her. The romance was so well done, and it was so cute and beautifully built and grown. I TOTALLY SHIP THEM! Ship name: Wrallum. Oh yeah! Callum was a great love interest because he is the kind of guy that I like. He was funny, cute, had a ton of personality, he was easygoing, but also very passionate about his beliefs, and very nice. I loved Wren’s character because of how much she grew over the course of the story and developed and became more HUMAN. [SPOILER: That was her problem for most of the book: she felt like she was too far gone and not human. It was so heartbreaking to see her so sad over not being able to cry, but I loved how Callum came in and took care of her. ] This romance was just all-around perfect.
This is by no means a bad book. It’s actually very enjoyable! I kind of loved it because of the romance mostly, but the story and ending is also very good, so I would definitely recommend picking this book up!
