The Armstrong twinsThematic Connection It is hard to find a definite theme in the second book of a series but if I would have to guess I would say it is Keep your head p Things could always be worse The reason I say it is one of these is because if Plath wouldn t have kept her head A Little Kinder up to save Vincent they could not have beaten BugmanRecommendation I would recommend this book to all genders aged from 15 to 18 because this is not a gender specific series There is both a male and female protagonist as well as an antagonist 75 out of 10 stars I m a bit disappointed with this seuel The first book was kinda ok but this one isninteresting The nanotech concept is still very cool though Keywords scifi biopunk nanotechnology madness trigger warning suicide gore violence A biot was not an other It was not outside of you it was part of you It was like a finger or a leg p 372 REVIEW In Bzrk series scientists had found a way to make nanotech weapons One of them is nanobots a nano sized robots that can be controlled from afar and held in the hand of our antagonists the Armstrong Twin They JAPAN 1/1M3. used it for controlling people s mind and attempting to take over the world The other nanotech is biological Biots is a nano sized avatar linked directly to people s mind and can be controlled in a risk that if biot died the owner will went insane Our resistance group Bzrk weresing biots to fight against the Armstrong Twin This bring Hechizos de amor us to raging nanotech battle edging between death and madness Bzrk Reloaded continued in what we were left in the end of the first book After failing in their mission Bzrk branch New York gained fatal blow one of Vincent s biot died thus making him slip to insanity The team leftncertain with the events had to stay low and Nijinsky recluctantly appointed as their leader Meanwhile the Armstrong Twin had another plan and began experimenting their mind controls en masse Will Bzrk able to stop them I ll just say it directly because this review is long enough What I like from this book The bleak depressing and edgy tones Just like the first book it still very bleak Just the amount of edgy tones that I like The romance As I mentioned in my review of previous book the romance is instalove It s the I m desperate afraid and dangling between sanity and madness so I need you as a distraction kind of thing Some might think it s cheap but I really buy the romance and I like it greatly The dynamic between the Bzrk team Bzrk New York team was left devastated after previous event And I like how Michael Grant wrote the tension between them Everyone is on edge Sadie estioning why she didn t killed the Twin and took the blame of their loss Keats madly in love with Sadie and want her to safely get away from it all Wilkes still very bitter about what happened to Ophelia Anya is trying to cope with Vincent s Betrayal And Her Love With Him Nijinsky and her love with him Nijinsky don t want to lead forced to the role and thinking he s not good enough Vincent who went insane and struggling with hallucinations I like their dynamic and how they tried to move on and do the next mission regardless how broken they re The biots and nanotech battle The nanotech concept is awesome Alas most of the scenes in this book are in macro and only some of them seen in the meat or from controlling
THE NANOTECH I ALSO LIKE HOW THE NANOTECH BEGAN nanotech I also like how the nanotech began control of people s mind and there s always some kind of side effect to it You can t get away tampering with other people s brain What I don t like Some scenes make no sense Some scenes feels weird and irked me because it making no sense I don t mean the scifi nanotech part it s the plot There are scenes that came as cheap and too convenient for the plot I don t care about 50% of the story I only care about the Bzrk gang s plot and there are some other subplots that feels like filler and I m bored to death reading it Namely the doll ship part And it s like half of the book so I read this half without any enjoyment at all Too much new characters I don t care about them With the new subplot came new characters and I found that I can t connect with them and I don t care about them at all Stereotypes
I find that several passages of the book might be insulting to some groups of people There are some that find that several passages of the book might be insulting to some groups of people There are some that seems ableist some others might be insulting to those with neurodivergents And there are so many racial stereotypes just as the first book CONCLUSION The concept of this series is very cool but I found the contents of the book lacking Might still read the third book because I need to know what happened I don t know whether I ll recommend this to people or not See reviews on my blogBZRK Reloaded took everything BZRK had to offer and kicked it p to eleven On the other hand the whole thing suffered from a bit of middle book syndrome It wasgood but it didn t really have its own story so much as it was a vehicle for moving s along to the final bookMiddle books are really hard There s a mix of good and things that are pretty distinct to middle books especially. Nt'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 conseuences can spiral way out of control and the Armstrong Twins are
Free read BZRK ReloadedPersonal Response I think that BZRK Reloaded is a very good book The only thing I would change in this book is the fact that it jumps around so much I would start to get into something and then mid page the scene would change over to someone else Other than that this book is extremely well written and keeps the reader engaged the whole time If the reader is not engaged in the book heshe will be left behind and will have to re read a lotPlot This book started off with Burnofsky going to the Armstrong twins to talk about Bugman s failed mission His mission was to try and stop the president from killing her husband Burnofsky told them that he would take care of Bugman himself In all reality what Burnofsky told Bugman was to lay low and not do any twitching for a while while he tried to figure out how he could fix Bugman s screw p Then the book jumped to a new character Farid Barbera the son of the Lebanon Ambassador He was a very brilliant hacker and he hacked into what Bugman was doing and saw everything The book jumps to the BZRK Washington cell and how it was almost completely taken out but there was one survivor The one survivor was a 14 year old boy who goes by the name Billy the Kid While the Washington cell was getting attacked by AFGC the New York cell was hunting down Bugman When they found him Vincent and Nijinsky started fighting him and Bugman killed one of Vincent s biots which means he went insane and Nijinsky retreated before Bugman could kill one of his After this battle Nijinsky went to talk to Anya and she told him the she could start research on a new biot but she needed a lab Plath and Keats went to Grey McLures will reading and there Plath got 55% of McLure Industries which euates to just Travels of an Ordinary Man Australia under 2 billion and she also stoodp to three workers and told them that she was in charge now Plath talked to Mr Stern after the other two left and asked him if he could find an island so that she and Keats could get out of BZRK if they so choose After Billy killed everyone that attacked their cell he contacted Lear and Lear said that he would send help as soon as he could Around the same time Farid was going to meet with a police officer but the ETA showed A Cidade e as Serras up and a couple of the agents went rouge and shot him in the jaw He ran out of the coffee shop where they were meeting and jumped into a cab Charles and Benjamin went to the Doll Ship the ship where they keep people and rewire their brains to follow the Armstrong twin s rule to check on the people that they were keeping there The New York cell got packedp to go to Washington to find and help Billy Keats and Plath flew to Washington while Nijinsky Anya Wilkes and Vincent drove On the way there Keats and Plath found that Burnofsky was following them Keats and Plath captured him and took him with them After Plath and Keats took Burnofsky they went and picked Everything a Band-Aid Can't Fix: A Teen's Guide to Healing and Dealing with Life up Billy in WashingtonWhile driving down to Washington Nijinsky saw on his phone that people were raiding the New York safe house and he took it into his own hands by blowingp the safe house When they the New York cell met p again they made a new safe house
Out Of A Churchof a church had Anya start researching the biot 40
was the one to receive the 40 because Nijinsky wanted to see what would happen if someone eliminated the memory of Vincent losing a biot When Plath started pouring acid on the memory she spilled some onto her own biot which in return hurt her but Nijinsky yelled at her to keep going While all this was going on Bugman went out with his girlfriend Jessica after he got done nwiring her which turned out to be a very bad idea Nijinsky finally got overthrown as leader because no one was going to take any orders from him any Plath took got overthrown as leader because no one was going to take any orders from him any Plath took of the cell After Plath took charge she ordered Vincent Wilkes Keats and herself to go and get Bugman because if they couldn t get the POTUS then they would get the person who has the POTUS Vincent was able to fight Bugman in the Nano because he was sane enough even though he was not completely back to normal in the macro Vincent won this fight because Bugman was awestruck that Vincent was back Characterization In the beginning of the book the characters are all the same we don t meet any new characters All Things Consoled until about 100 pages in when we meet Pia Valuist Pia is a Swedish Intelligence agent who goes after the Doll Ship Other characters we meet are Silver an ex marine on the Doll Ship Kim Kim a Japanese spy that is part of the crew on the Doll Ship and finally Minako A teenage girl who was taken from her hometown and was brought to the Doll Ship We also meet Billy the sole survivor of the BZRK Washington cellImpacts of Setting The impacts of setting is kind of difficult to differentiate because this book jumps around so much One of the impacts is that the New York BZRK cell has to move to Washington because the cell that was there was destroyed Another one is on the Doll Ship when Minako is trying to get someone to listen to her but no one does because they are all so focused on. 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 Vince. In a series like this which tells one long story instead of something with a episodic setp For instance we got a lot intensity out of the characters because we didn t have to spend any time setting them Backstory establishing scenes meeting all the other characters all of that was already done with so we could jump straight into the development And in this book s case it was A Gin-Pissing-Raw-Meat-Dual-Carburetor-V8-Son-of-a-Bitch from Los Angeles uite excellent There s a lot going on with these characters are they get and embroiled in violence and all the guilt that goes along with that and the connections between the characters get pretty intense On the other hand the plot of the book turns into of a very long setp for the big shebang at the end There wasn t much of a goal in this one Things just progressively got worse in an attempt to make the main conflict extra sticky and tense in BZRK Apocalypse And it was Cracked (Soul Eaters, unfortunately obvious thansual in this book that that s what was going on It was all very interesting stuff there s no lie about that but there was a sense that it didn t really have a purpose besides 1 making chaos and 2 providing impetus for the characters to get depressedStill those character moments are what made this book I would ite honestly read just about anything for the sake of those character moments There was some stuff in here that was just really really brilliant and a lot of it happened outside of our main group of kids Especially the plot line with the President I was blown away by that I loved the amount of focus that was put on people out in the world It gave the story a sense of being complete of being part of a complex world instead of being focused on just a few random teenage kid heroes Of course other people would learn about the megalomaniacs Of course they would try and do stuff about it There are after all a lot of very observant people in the world yeah And there were just enough of those outside POVs to make the point without pulling too far away from the core group Although I do wonder if that s because our core group wasn t doing much Maybe I just didn t mind being pulled away from themOverall it was a very emotional read for me and that s probably most of the draw Yeah the horror and the action are both still there but give me that introspective despair any day of the week There is so much going on at all times and I am living You have a bunch of different POV characters but it never gets confusing Though it jumps around from one to the other in no particular order it s always clear who you re dealing with and what they re doing And the action I said it in my previous review but lol for you Action scenes are rarely what get me in books but these are so exciting Not only is the whole nano thing really cool still but you never know who is going to come out on top Speaking of I was just gonna leave a sentence for my fave but then realized that would be spoiling that they survive book 1 so GASP I just SPOILED that the entire cast of characters isn t killed off in book 1 Oh NOOO This review is also posted at had kept BZRKplath was the
on my To Read list for a while so when Imy To Read list for a while so when I access to an ARC galley from the publisher I pushed myself to go ahead and check it out of the library to read I love sci fi novels and while BZRK was inherently nothing special it was interesting enough to get me into the this seuelThis seuel however was similar to an English homework reading assignment It seems as if it took me ages to read and I kept putting it off in lieu of television or other books I was also reading Procrastination at its finestFor one I never felt connected to these characters The series as a whole has severely lacked character development It s hard to care about the characters situations when you don t even care about the characters in general And the whole PlathNoah relationship is so nderdeveloped it s of a laughing point in the plot than anything elseThen we get to the main plots of this novel While the plot of BZRK was ok the plot of BZRK Reloaded reminded me of a train wreck We had numerous different plot lines going on and most of them never connected or made any sense at all My main point here without getting into spoiler depth detail is the Doll Ship I realize Plath made one of the conjoined twins a little crazy at the end of the little crazy at the end of the novel when realize Plath made one of the conjoined twins a little crazy at the end of the first novel when did a haphazard rewiring of his brain but the Doll Ship is something that appears to have been in the works long before that And I guess it is a legitimate concept to point at and go Wow these guys really are crazy sociopaths no wonder they want to take over the world but then we get into the gray territory of somewhat plausible sci fi to crazy sci fiOverall it s hard to pin point exactly where BZRK Reloaded lost me when I was okay with the first in the series Perhaps it is the accumulation of all the plot pitfalls and lack of character development combined or even something else that I can t Put off thy shoes uite put my finger on but BZRK Reloaded was definitely notp my alley and I do not plan on taking this series any further in my reading lists.
