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.


My Thoughts:
Revolution 19 is a fantastic debut by Gregg Rosenblum. Not only is the cover awesome, but the story was unique, and even better than I had imagined. This was an easy read, and very easily draws the reader into the story-line.

A Robot Revolution erupted twenty years ago. The designed bots that were designed to fight the wars. These bots became so advanced and in the process began taking over the very people who relied on them. Survivors captured were taken to the city, and others that had escaped lived out in the wilderness. There were Freeposts set up where survivors lived. It was like their make-shift community. Using scavaged goods, (pre-Revolution) they created shelters and other facilities.

Kevin, Nick and Cass were siblings among this specific Freepost, and on a "school" lesson, a tech piece is found. Kevin hid this from his family, but what he didn't know, is that what he found would essentially catch the eye of the bots.

It was too late once Nick figured out what his brother had hidden from them. The bots came. The bots killed. The journey to escape these advanced tech bots was adrenaline packed. These bots aren't small, little robots that you picture in a children's book. They were at least eight feet tall and wide as two men.

When their parents didn't show up, they immediately knew they were taken to the city. Everyone in the Freepost believed those captured and taken to the city were used as slaves. I loved how the author twisted the view of the Freeposters, and the ones that lived within the city's thoughts about how each other lived. On their mission to find their parents, they meet a few new friends that hesitantly assist them and ultimately add excitement into this thrilling story.

This ends off on a cliffhanger, and I absolutely cannot wait to find out how the next installment will pan out. I really liked the characters and their courage they displayed. Whether it was a sacrifice or a complete idiotic attempt to saving their parents, it all panned out allowing more adventure and adversity into this fun and exciting story.

Thank you Harper Teen for providing this ARC
