Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales

Quick & Dirty: Both BZRK and the Armstrong’s are back in the second part of the BZRK trilogy. Even after taking a major hit the BZRK team is not ready to surrender their freedom. They are ready to take any risks to save mankind.

Opening Sentence: Wilkes is Alive and back with us.

The Review:

I have to admit that I did not finish the first one because it was too confusing for me. All the nano and Biot references were too much science for me. I gave this one a try hoping I could get through it to give it a good review and I’m glad I did. By this book they figure you understand the nano and Biot information so they do not try to explain it as much which made reading the story more enjoyable. But for those who enjoy the science part of the story it is still there.

The narrative jumped from one group to another to another which was a little confusing to me but I finally was able to keep up. But it made it a little harder to relate to any specific character. I couldn’t relate to Sadie. I did feel badly that her family was killed but at times I thought she was a whiny rich girl. That’s why I was happy when she started to grow up and take responsibility. Also, another reason I may not have been able to relate is that I didn’t finish the first one so did not know the characters all that well.

I did enjoy the story and I agreed for the most part with BZRK. No one should be forced to give up their mind or be brainwashed in anyway. Also, the thought that someone can get into your brain sends a shiver through me. I wanted to see Plath and all the gang stop the Armstrong twins from succeeding in taking over all of humankind’s minds. There were times where I thought BZRK had overstepped. I can’t say exactly how they overstepped the boundaries without giving away important parts of the book, but a few times they seemed more like the bad guys rather than the good guys. Also, it was interesting getting a bit of a back story on the twins, not that it made me sympathize with them or understand how what they were doing was ok. It just helped to understand how they became so sick and demented.

I recommend this book to those who enjoyed the first book. If you did not read the first one I do recommend it even though I could not finish it. I truly believe if I had finished the first one I may have enjoyed this book even more.

Notable Scene:

“It was very bad, burning cities full of people. But we had to. And even though it was bad, it was necessary.”

“Don’t you have a flag to wave, Nijinsky?” Burnofsky said.

“You know why it was okay to do those terrible things?” Nijinsky asked.

Billy shook his head.

Nijinsky leaned close to Burnofsky, no longer really speaking to Billy. He put his face right up close to Burnofsky and looked into his eyes. “I’ll tell you why it was okay. Because they started it. Because some madman decided he had to take over the world. And weak, pitiful, depraved people like Mr. Burnofsky here, helped those madmen. Evil men and the weak men who help them sometimes leave us no choice.”

FTC Advisory: Egmont USA/Random House provided me with a copy of BZRK Reloaded. No goody bags, sponsorships, “material connections,” or bribes were exchanged for my review. ( )

wow I mean wow. This book sure does show a interesting view of what can be done with nanotechnology and the dangers if it gets in the wrong hands.

Vincent i feel for. Poor guy is going mad and than is living within his mind once they wire him. Bug Man is just freaky and has some major insecurities. I see though or at least I think that him and Vincent have a past together that is driving him to revenge.

the Armstrong twins there are no words they will send chills up and down your spine. And the doll ship is just there are no words for how messed up that is. Those two need some serious serious help.

Sadie is strongwilled and interesting as is Noah they are interesting together as well. I wonder what will happen there.

A book that is truly interesting in how it shows the world in the eyes of evil and trying to keep freedoms. One that shows the possibilities of nanotechnology and what can happen if it gets in the wrong hands. A very interesting read.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 160684394X, Hardcover)

From best-selling author Michael Grant, comes the highly anticipated, terrifying, and mind-bending second book in the BZRK trilogy.

The entire BZRK cell--including Noah and Sadie--has been left in pieces after the last round of battle with the Armstrong Twins, conjoined brother who plot to rob mankind of its free will. Vincent's mind is shattered, and his memories hold dangerous secrets--secrets that Lear, BZRK's mysterious leader, will stop at nothing to protect.

Meanwhile, Bug Man has taken control of the President's brain, but playing with sanity is a dangerous game. The consequences can spiral way out of control, and the Armstrong Twins are not people Bug Man can afford to disappoint.

The nano is as terrifying, exhilarating, and unpredictable as ever. But the wall of secrets that surrounds it is cracking. What will it reveal? And once the dust has settled, who will be sane enough to find out?
