Blackout Series

The book did have great potential and maybe the series as a whole will be better. Return to top of page. We don’t know how it started, nor society’s reaction to it. I could see these exact things happening in such a situation sorry, I’m being vague so I don’t spo This book did my lil’ X-Men loving heart good! The characters were boring, and the I can’t believe the author who wrote Variant and Feedback wrote this.

Please tell me there’s a sequel! Click here for the latest Fresh Batch! The terrorism aspect of Blackout was the first thing that didn’t hold up under scrutiny for me.

Similar to how movies reflect the state of the country. Acknowledging that they have been brought up as terrorists, I still could not but help feel that they weren’t as clear or genuine compared to Audrey or Jack.

Review: Blackout by Robison Wells

The powers come with a price, generally a physical ailment, They are kept locked up and isolated until an arbitrary day when they are taken from their cells and moved into a research facility.

Wells delivers plenty of action and the pace couldn’t have been any faster. Enhanced memory and comprehension. I truly believe that this will be a new buzz book!

Thanks for the honest review, Giselle. Hardcoverpages. Sep 20, Once Upon a Twilight rated it it was amazing Shelves: And all teens must wear a bracelet to show wel,s they have been tested.

So quite obviously, I was not a fan of Aubrey to begin with, she was probably the most irritating and dependent character I’ve come across. It is interesting to note that even though we have been living under a color coded terrorist alert system sincenot much of the young adult literature being written today speaks specifically about terrorism.


Overall, Blackout is a new, shining gem within the post-apocalyptic genre that blacklut be missed. And these four are about to find their lives intertwined in a complex web of deception, loyalty, and catastrophic danger—where one wrong choice could trigger an explosion that ends it all.

Review: Blackout by Robison Wells | Xpresso Reads

She has no idea where it came from or whether or not something is ‘wrong’ with her; all she knows is that she can do it. Lbackout and opinions expressed in reviews, discussions, and other posts on this blog are my own unless otherwise stated.

While it’s not the best written thing in the world, I flew through this because of the characters, the storyline and the action, no matter how unoriginal it was.
