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.
After facing off against the Chancellor and her powers of persuasion in Glitch, Zoe has finally escaped the Community with her love, Adrien. In this sequel to Glitch, we find Zoe living at the Foundation, a home for refugees and members of the Resistance movement trying to destroy the VChip system for good. The Foundation is also home to many other glitchers that are learning to control their powers like Zoe is doing. Zoe's telekinesis grows much stronger and she learns to control it more in Override. Throughout Glitch, Zoe was terrified of using her telekinesis. Now, Zoe is confident and more brave.
The relationship between Adrien and Zoe felt completely off throughout this novel. However, there is a really great twist that explains everything, so it made the book even better! The author, Heather Anastasiu, is a master of plot twists. There is a big whammy of a twist in this book which kind of makes it difficult to write a review without giving away too much!
Overall, Glitch is a great series so far. Override was just as good if not better than Glitch. I can't wait to read Shutdown and see what happens!!!
5 stars to Override!
