Revolution 19 #2 Fugitive X

Presenting Revolution 19 #2 Fugitive X by Gregg Rosenblum.

Here is the summary of the book:

Their fight for freedom is humanity's last hope for survival. The chilling Revolution 19 trilogy continues in Fugitive X.

A war between humans and robots is on the horizon, and only one side will survive.

Siblings Nick, Kevin, and Cass are struggling to survive in a world where deadly, sophisticated robots have turned on their creators and enslaved mankind. Fugitives from one of the bot-controlled Cities, the siblings venture into the woods, but when they are attacked by bot foot soldiers, the siblings are separated...and for the first time, they are on their own.

Created in conjunction with Alloy Entertainment; Howard Gordon, showrunner of 24 and Showtime's Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning Homeland; and James Wong, writer-director of the Final Destination films, Fugitive X is the gripping next installment in the cinematic Revolution 19 series.

Not sure but I hardly saw a change from the first book, in the sequel Fugitive X. The writing is still that of a screenplay for a TV/Movie and the chapters are all in the three point of views of Nick, Cass and Kevin and like the first here too, there are no smooth transitions as we abruptly shift from one perspective to another. And it still lacks details that are necessary for the world building in the case of post-apocalyptic dystopia.

Even the three characters Nick, Cass and Kevin don't seem to have evolved at all. They are still the same as from the first. They are still fiercely loyal to each other. They are still stubborn, each one of them and would do anything to keep each other safe.

The one thing I noticed about this book. While it lacks a certain amount of detail needed for novels of this genre..... it does have an episodic feel because stuffs seems to happen at quite an alarming rate when they get separated this time. At least it was a bit interesting on that front.
