Blurb Description:You live. You love. You die. Now RUN.
Every minute, 108 people die. On October 14th, 2016, from 9:31-9:32 p.m. EDT, 23 of those deaths will be teenagers. Now they are humanity’s last hope for survival. Awakened in a world they barely recognize and hunted by mechanical horrors, these teens search for answers amidst the ruins of civilization. Fate, love, and loyalty face off in this adrenaline -pumping YA adventure.
Team-written by some of today’s most popular YA authors, ReMade is brought to you by Matthew Cody (Super), Andrea Phillips (Revision), Kiersten White (And I Darken), Gwenda Bond (Girl on a Wire), Carrie Harris (Bad Taste in Boys), and E. C. Myers (The Silence of Six).
Waking up in a strange and scary new world isn’t necessarily the worst thing, especially when you are grateful to wake up at all. When Nevaeh opened her eyes to find no hospital bed, IV drips, or cancer riddling her body she counted her blessings and sang for joy – happy to face the deadly jungle, killer robots, and (if she’s honest, perhaps the most disheartening) disgruntled companions. They say smiling is the best medicine, but does it still work after death?Season One will unfold across 15 episodes beginning September 14th, with a new installment dropping every Wednesday until the season finale on December 21st. Jump into this digital serial, available in both text and audio, and find out what the future of fiction holds.

Before you start this review, you should download you FREE copy of Book One in this AWESOME season here.
Or, you can read my review of Episode 1, Shadows and Dreams, written by Matthew Cody here and Episode two, Hungry by Andrea Philips here.
Do you know that feeling you get when you meet an old friend, or get back into an old book?
That warm feeling filled with comfort and excitement?
That is what opening every episode in ReMade feels like; like I’m going back to something familiar and lovely.
Despite that these episodes are never longer that fifty pages, each author (and the story) has the ability to pull you in, show you the world in another, completely different person’s point of view, learn something about the ReMade world, and give you a plethora of new questions!
In the first episode, Shadows and Dreams, we see what all the ‘ReMade’ children experience on the space shuttle. They are plagued by dreams of mechanical spiders and pain, are woken up in a leaking room, found by a lady named Umta, joined by two to three others and sent down from space, to the planet below them.
In the second, Hungry, we hear from an overachiever who has gotten stuck in this warped reality about how the teenagers are surviving in this unfamiliar environment, how they got there and about how all their flaws (like allergies or bad vision) have been eliminated by the caretakers in the space station, making them ReMade.
Which brings us to episode three, which is told from another point of view. Nevaeh is happy to be here. She’s probably the only one, but the feeling of being healthy, the smell of anything other than hospital disinfectant and the feel of the sun on her face are all things she can’t help but being happy about. Not letting her die is the greatest gift the caretakers could have given her.
As she helps with the effort of making a home on this clearing in the forest, Home Perilous Home takes us deeper into who all the characters are, and gives you a clearer picture of what the world is now like.
I love getting into the heads of such different characters – it makes me feel like I really know them, and then seeing them after from someone else’s perspective is EVEN MORE REFRESHING.
AND THAT ENDING, GAAH.
ReMade is a beautifully constructed series that has the ability to make you fall in love, even with a thousand questions on your mind! 5 stars!
