Week 38 Reviews: Revolution 19, Fugitive X, City 1

From Goodreads:
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.

From Goodreads:
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.

From Goodreads:
In the explosive conclusion to the thrilling Revolution 19 series, the time has come to win the cities back from the bots—or die trying.

After finally reuniting at a rebel camp, siblings Nick, Kevin, and Cass are willing to do anything to stay together—and free their parents from bot rule. But the leader of the rebel camp has her own ideas. Cruel and determined, General Clay won't let anything stand in the way of her plan to destroy the robots and all the brainwashed humans. This means their parents' lives are at stake, but Nick, Kevin, and Cass can't desert the rebels when they're so close to freedom. How far will they go to save the world they believe in?

My Review:
These books were really awesome to read! I mean, the robot apocalypse? So awesome, and dark, since the robots killed most of humanity, and is now rounding up survivors and putting them in cities for purposes basically unknown.

This is the story of 3 siblings (well, Cassie is adopted, since her parents were killed so the rest of the group could leave) Nick and Kevin. They aren't always together, but they have the same basic goal-save their parents, which grows into save humanity from the robots!

We did get scenes from robot's perspectives. And they were pretty creepy. Like one scene, a higher up robot was eating-and then spitting it out, since he only had a tongue, he didn't have anything else. Just to figure out taste. Such a waste!

I really enjoyed that ending, it was fought for, and there were losses, and most definitely there were struggles, but at the end of the day, some things are worth fighting for, and this was one of them, so that ending was pretty great!

Really fantastic trilogy, and yeah, I just really enjoyed reading it!
