Override (Glitch #2) by Heather Anastasiu

Override (Glitch, #2)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
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.

Full of high-adrenaline action and shocking twists, Heather Anastasiu's Override is an exciting continuation of this popular young adult trilogy.

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Override (Glitch, #2)(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
This was an interesting story, but it did find that it dragged a bit in places.

I felt sorry for Zoe in this book. Even though she was supposed to have these wonderful powers, and was supposed to end up leading the resistance, she was so hindered by her allergies and her inability to control her power that she really wasn’t all that much use to anybody.

The storyline in this was okay, although I did find the pace quite slow. I did start to lose interest a bit towards the end, but thankfully there were some twists thrown in to mollify me slightly.
I did like the romance in this story, but I seriously did not like the twists with regards to it. I cannot believe the author did that!

The ending to this was okay, I was ready for it to end though. The twist with regards to Adrien was awful, and I am so disappointed with this book in that respect.
Overall; interesting story, but with some cruel twists,
7 out of 10.
