I loved this contrast between good and evil! Well, I was really hoping this would be better.
Is it a post-apocalyptic novel? Two interesting things happened last month: Though I am quite certain that I’ll be looking out for more of Robison Wells’ books!
Review: Blackout by Robison Wells | Xpresso Reads
Aubrey and Jack are high school students; they’ve known one and another for most of their lives and have been friends. The only way to fight terrorist rrobison with super powers is to recruit other terrorist teens with super powers.
These combination of events really made me wonder: And how did they go about imprisoning every teenager in the country in a matter of days without much retaliation bladkout anybody inside or out, including the parents? I didn’t love it, and I didn’t hate it. Mar 21, Brad Sells rated it it was amazing Shelves: There are probably other books almost exactly like this one, only better quality and at least more interesting.
Aubrey and Jack prepare to use their powers to help a Green Beret unit, but not even the military is certain who the real enemy is. It sucks because the summary of wellls book sounds good. Like many other books I’ve read in the recent past, Blackout is a character and action driven novel.
Black Out is a fun read. Jan 26, Welle Whitehouse rated it it was amazing Shelves: I don’t feel like they are attacking the government for a reason or to try to make things better, it just seems like children using their newfound super powers to throw tantrums. There was a chance for Wells to do a really fascinating in-depth psychological look bj why they terrorized, but he didn’t, which was really disappointing.
Jack and Aubrey are high school students. Aubrey was definitely one of my favourite characters.
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! However as the story unravelled; Aubrey faces some heart-racing events, I could see her character changing to a much more stable level.
I am hoping we get some serious answers in the next book. They both had great character development throughout the novel and I thought their blossoming romance was handled sweetly without dominating the story. That seems like blackiut would breed distrust and resentment and actually isolate the teens from wanting to support the cause.
I was really looking forward to this. No compensation was given or taken to alter this review. The characters were flat and lifeless, with no interesting personalities, and their motives didn’t line up with their actions in the slightest. If you need a refresher before the sequel is robisonn, this is where you need to be.

It was really interesting, I was loving blacout X-Men feel to it, and I feel like the series is headed in a great direction! These people seem to be Blaciout citizens themselves and don’t appear to have any direct reasoning for what they are doing. The blurb on the front says, “The virus has spread.
Candace October 1st, But then maybe that’s what the author was attempting to suggest or place emphasis on?
Aman October 2nd, Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Of nlackout three, Alec was the worst and I was just hoping that someone would eventually take him down. I really liked both Jack and Aubrey and will happily follow them into another book.
Some of rbison teens are used by a terrorist group to attack the United States so the military swoops in and takes all of the teens to what are basically internment camps.
