Their fight for freedom is humanity's last hope for survival. The chilling Revolution 19 trilogy continues in Fugitive X.

A war between humans and robots is on the horizon, and only one side will survive.

Siblings Nick, Kevin, and Cass are struggling to survive in a world where deadly, sophisticated robots have turned on their creators and enslaved mankind. Fugitives from one of the bot-controlled Cities, the siblings venture into the woods, but when they are attacked by bot foot soldiers, the siblings are separated...and for the first time, they are on their own.

Created in conjunction with Alloy Entertainment; Howard Gordon, showrunner of 24 and Showtime's Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning Homeland; and James Wong, writer-director of the Final Destination films, Fugitive X is the gripping next installment in the cinematic Revolution 19 series.

I haven’t read a dystopian book in a while, so I picked this one up.

Plot: This story picks up where the last book left off and the reader is up for lots of actions. Once again, they are on the run. Nick, Kevin and Cass are up for some tough times. I think this book depicts the future of this world well. Everything is painted nice for the reader to understand and see. I have to admit that every time they got close to the camps or drones, geeze, I got nervous. There are lot of plot twist so you will be plenty entertained.

Siblings/Friendship: I’m not going to ruin it but know that many things happen to the siblings that really test them. I was a wreck reading this part cause all I can think is,” NOOOOOO!” There are some new minor characters who come into play and add more to the story. Pay attention to these new people, they aren’t what they seem.

Ending: The ending ends…. well, with a cliffhanger. The siblings get reunited again but there are some major changes. I’m anxious to see what the next book will have to offer. There is one plot twist that I’m wanting to see how it turns out.

This is a great addition to the series. There is plenty of action and the reader is going to be intrigued by all the new developments. Check it out if your interest in machines taking over.

I give it 4 BITES!


Happy Reading!

    Another book with a cliffhanger? It seems like I can’t escape them lately! I’m glad you still enjoyed it overall Savy, and I do love a book with twists, but I think I’ll wait until the whole series is out so I don’t give myself an ulcer over these cliffhangers:)

  5. I need to read this series! I haven’t read a dystopian in a long time either. Don’t you just love when books make you nervous?!
