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.

Zoe has escaped from the Community, and has turned her attention to the Rez who will stop at nothing to take them down. With the help of Adrien, and all the rest of her Rez team members, she finds her growing powers truly unpredictable, but will stop at nothing until they take the Chancellor and her corrupt leadership down.

There was so much action in this one, I couldn’t even stop reading it! I loved how Heather interlaced the plot within all the wonderful new characters and new story arc. It felt so seamless. You know how some books tend to bore you to tears because nothing significant happens? Well this isn’t the case for Override because I was constantly trying to find out what the General and the Chancellors’s motives were. That can cause anyone to be frustrated but I did mange to have some patience at least.

I just have to say the ending for this one was super sad. It broke my heart. It’s one of those endings where you’re like “WHAT!? DID THAT JUST HAPPEN? WHERE’S THE NEXT BOOK!?” I can’t wait for Shutdown and I am dying to get my hands on it.


I think it’s contentment. Where you have everything you ever wanted, all together in one place. It’s quieter than excitement, but maybe it’s better.

    I love these action thriller types that don’t even let up in the end. Thanks for sharing!
