I’m always a little disappointed when a book has an awesome setting, and then in the next book the characters are out of that setting. This is the case in Override. Yes, the Community is a corrupt place, but I loved the creepy, monotonous feel to it. Now Zoe is above ground at the Foundation as part of the Resistance. She’s training, along with other escaped glitchers, to fight against the Chancellor and the rest of those in charge at the Community.

The plot is quite fast paced in Override. Before I knew it, I was at the end! Zoe and the other glitchers just keep running into dangerous situation after dangerous situation. Their powers are certainly be tested to the max. I loved seeing the Gifts of other glitchers in action, and there’s also some scientific explanations behind these Gifts which I enjoyed reading, too.

I’m still not convinced on this romance between Zoe and Adrien. There’s a few moments of “Oh, I love you so much” and some kissing, and I couldn’t help but roll my eyes. If you don’t remember, those two fell in love the same day they met. Yeah, lame. Luckily, there’s not much romance happening in Override since the focus is on the action. They also spend some time avoiding each other which took away more romance time. But then there’s a twist! I was like OMG no way! It’s serious and slightly creepy, but it was awesome.

That ending was intense. I didn’t see that coming at all. Even though I never liked Adrien that much, I feel so bad for him! I have hope that things will work out in the last book though. The Resistance has their work cut out for them if they want to free all of the citizens at Community. Without a doubt, Override is better than the first book. Sure I missed some things from the previous book, but I liked the action and the science that one gives us.
