From the creators of Homeland and American Horror Story comes Fugitive X, the chilling sequel to Revolution 19.

After the robot revolution, anyone who escaped capture by the bots made their homes in secret freeposts in the wilderness outside the bot-controlled Cities. Siblings Nick, Kevin, and Cass never would have dreamed of venturing into the Cities, but when their parents are kidnapped, they have no choice but to follow them.

Not everything goes as planned, though, and the siblings find themselves fleeing the city without their parents. And then the three are separated, and for the first time, they are on their own. Cass is brought in for reprogramming by the bots; Nick joins up with rebel soldiers; and Kevin meets the man who is responsible for the robot technology—and their only chance at defeating the robots once and for all.

As the three fight to take down the bots, they must prepare for a looming war between bots and humans that will decide the fate of the human world forever.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Fast Paced Thriller! "Fugitive X" is the thrilling, and fast-paced sequel to "Revolution 19" set in a world where high-tech robots have revolted against their masters, taken over the cities and imprisoned humanity. After fleeing their city and eluding capture Nick, Kevin and Cass are struggling to find the safe haven of Freepost. Rebelling against his brother's leadership, Kevin ignores Nick's warning and goes looking for water only to be kidnapped by two strange bots lurking in the woods. Separated from Nick and Cass, Kevin is taken to the Island sanctuary where he will not only make new allies but find surprising answers to many of his questions. Searching for their missing brother, Cass and Nick become entangled in events that will divide them;one to return to the City and the other to fight for humanity's freedom. This is a story of not only rebellion, domination and prejudice, but of the hope, friendship and love inherent in humanity. The plot is well-written and progresses at a steady pace as the strings of the story converge in a surprising cliff-hanger. The core characters are well-developed, realistic and multi-faceted as they struggle to overcome their weaknesses and disappointments while trying to survive and overcome the enemy. Kevin is a curious and stubborn technological wizard masking his fear and loneliness behind a false bravado when captured. Nick is the eldest of the three siblings, a natural leader who's impatient, insecure at times, determined and loyal while his athletic sister Cass is feisty defiant until re-education changes her into a proud citizen, complaint and co-operative. In this story the siblings will be reunited with Lexi and Farryn, dependable, trusting and committed friends from the city as well as making new allies; the rebellious Erica who hides a dangerous secret, and Bot 23 who's an unaggressive, purposeful, calm robot with human-like instincts. All the core characters will not only have to fight against the violence of the bots, but will struggle against the inner conflict and deception within their own ranks. I enjoyed "Fugitive X" and look forward to the next book in this high-octane series.
