Revolution 19 by Gregg Rosenblum
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.
Revolution 19 is a cinematic thriller unlike anything else. With a dynamic cast of characters, this surefire blockbuster has everything teen readers want—action, drama, mystery, and romance. Written by debut novelist Gregg Rosenblum, this gripping story shouldn’t be missed.
I’m not usually a big fan of science fiction novels. That being said, I loved Revolution 19. At times, it was scary accurate. With the technology we have, it’s not impossible to think that we might be overthrown by robots in the future. The plot had me captivated. It was interesting hearing about a city ruled by robots. The re-education center was especially fascinating. I loved the complexity of the center. The author did a wonderful job of creating it. I’m hoping that the re-education center comes back in the sequel. I liked most of the characters. I didn’t care for Amanda. I thought she was whiny and untrustworthy. I think she deserved her fate. My favorite character was Cass. When Nick, Kevin, and Cass arrived in the city, I think Cass handled it the best. She has a calm demeanor that I really liked and respected. The book left off on a cliffhanger. I’m assuming there is going to be a sequel. It’s at the top of my to read list when it is released.
I give Revolution 19: 5/5.
