Zoe is free. She has escaped the enslavement of the Community, disconnected from the hardware that had controlled her every thought and emotion, and evaded capture by the Chancellor intent on killing her. She is finally free, but she is far from safe.
Zoe and Adrien hide themselves from detection at the Foundation, an academy that trains teen glitchers to fight in the Resistance movement. Together, Zoe and her new team of superhuman fighters must risk their lives to rescue other glitchers and humans from the Chancellor’s control. Challenges abound at every turn, and Adrien, who has become silent, distant, and tormented by his visions of the future, only adds to the growing certainty of defeat. But worst of all, as Zoe’s team fights against impossible odds, distrust and betrayal leads to the terrible discovery that their greatest threat could already be lurking behind the safe walls of the Foundation.
Full of high-adrenaline action and shocking twists, Heather Anastasiu’s Override is an exciting continuation of this popular young adult trilogy.
Heather Anastasiu is the author of the young adult sci-fi novel, GLITCH (St. Martin’s Press/Spring 2012). She recently moved to Minneapolis with her family, and when she’s not busy getting lost exploring the new city, she spends most days writing at a café.
Where to begin…
Did I love it? YES! Would I recommend it to other YA readers? A most heartfelt YES!
This is how a sequel should be. From the very beginning this wonderfully written dystopia adventure holds onto you and doesn’t let go. This adventure has its ups and downs and quite a few moments of surprises along the way.
We start off with Zoe living in a wall at a lab. She is too allergic to live with the others in the Resistance and is waiting on them to fix that. Adrien comes to rescue her because he has a vision that she would be found soon…
Once they join up with the others, Zoe starts to learn how to control her telekinetic powers and starts to grow as a leader. Soon they come to realize that someone close to them is not who they think he is.
I do think you really should read Glitch before you read Override. I feel a reader will be lost without having read the beginning of this series. I know I am looking forward to the next book and seeing what happens to Zoe and Adrien.
