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).
Respawning in an unfamiliar place with no resources, weapons, or fuel sounds like a gamer’s nightmare – and Loki knows a thing or two about those. As the group tries to navigate finding food, creating shelter, and staying calm in a jungle with killer robots, he can’t help but wish for a reset button that takes him back – though he knows more than anyone that his life hasn’t been great for the last several checkpoints. When a new predator begins to stalk the survivors he sees his chance to prove himself in the real world, but he’s pretty sure he’s already used his one life in this game.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.

If you're introduced to a bunch of people together, there will be a minimum of one of them who you don't like. Or, at the very least, don't understand.
In ReMade, that was Loki. And this is SAD because I LOVE LOKI/ TOM HIDDLESTON/ CURRENT RULER OF ASGARD AS PER THE MARVEL MOVIES/ GOD OF EVERYTHING.
It wasn't Loki in this new ReMade planet that I didn't like, but more his backstory. Social Outcast? GREAT. Online Gamer? Good For You. But planning on committing suicide was suddenly so far fetched for a bit I'd only read about for ten or so pages was well, UNBELIEVABLE. Truth be told, for something so emotional, I just didn't feel it, and it just killed the buzz the book was giving me.
Also, the entire episode revolved on setting a trap for an animal, and defeating it. It really felt like a filler novel because I was ALREADY feeling the team spirit and it didn't have to be explained in that much detail.
However, the next episode is about UMTA, the lady responsible for bringing the children down from the Space Station, and the one who MIGHT know what it going on, and I AM SO EXCITED!
A series I will definitely be continuing!
