Revolution 19 by Gregg Rosenblum Review

"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."

Wow... What an interesting read. Not the best one, but an interesting one. I found Insignia much more entertaining.

Revolution 19... The robots call it Revolution 19. Revolution 18 and Revolution 19 are the two revolutions that happen in the book along with an unknown revolution. Every "rebellion" of the humans/freeman are given a name. Revolution 19 is Kevin, Nick, and Cass along with several other important characters from the robot City.

I was a little unpleased that the rebellion didn't really start until halfway through the book. Good authors should have good sense to start the hot stuff before the halfway line of the book. Unfortunately, many authors are not like that.

The plot was rather interesting. There was enough twist and turns to interest readers. It's easy to get bored though. Mr. Rosenblum's writing was clear, but if he had describe the robots in more details, Revolution 19 would have been a bit better.

The Ending: It has to end like this! Don't read this book until the second book comes out!


Nick... Out of the three major characters, Nick is the smartest one. He was smart enough and brave enough to venture into the Lion's Den to find his parents and friends, but mostly his parents. His reactions were quite understandable. Nick was slightly reckless, but he know his limits quite well unlike a certain other character, who is also his younger brother. Nick is blind on his left side. His eye was later healed by the robots when they gave him a new eye to replace the old one. (So that is most likely Nick on the cover. Either that or some robot, which I highly doubt). Nick is a character who is easily understandable.

Cass... The second smartest of the trio and Nick's adoptive sister. She's fourteen and was only a baby in the prologue and when her parents sadly died because of robots. She's adopted by Nick's parents and rarely mentions her birth parents. Cass is very athletic and intelligent. She, in my opinion, is a better character than Nick.

Kevin...The dumbest of the three and Nick's younger brother. Kevin is quite foolish and young. So he has a good excuse to be dumb and foolish. Every time he does something outrageous, I shake my head and click my tongue.

Lexi... Seriously!?! Are really that bored!?! Someone needs to talk some sense into this girl! You did all this because you are bored!

This book's rating is a three out of five.
