Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—Sadie and Noah have escaped from the brilliantly insane Armstrong twins, and the fallout from their first battle as twitchers continues in this exciting followup to BZRK. Vincent has been left mostly catatonic with occasional outbursts of madness after the destruction of his biots. Najinsky is trying to maintain control of BZRK, the guerilla group of teens fighting for their right to be fully human, as the main contact with Lear. Bug Man has control of the president's brain and the Armstrongs are kidnapping young women to use in their disturbed plan to take over the world. Listeners will definitely need to read or listen to the first book before this one because there is little, if any, background given. Nico Evers-Swindell has an incredible ability to build energy and voice a variety of multinational characters. His descriptions of the biots and nanobots "in the meat" holds interest and may even encourage curiosity about life at the microscopic level. There is quite a bit of violence, especially in the final chapters, and some potentially offensive language throughout. Give this series to your virtual reality gamers.—Ann Brownson, Eastern Illinois University, Charleston --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

From Booklist

In the not-too-distant future, war can be waged at the cellular level, and the BZRK biots (genetically engineered extensions of humans) battle Armstrong Fancy Gifts Corporation (AFGC) nanotechnology for control of the country and the fate of humanity. AFGC’s number-one (human) operative, the Bug Man, is intent on wiping out mankind and controls the American president, while BZRK is attempting to rebound from the death and insanity resulting from its last encounter with AFGC. BZRK’s only hope is to destroy or subvert Bug Man, and it is a slim hope at best. Readers will need seat belts and a road map to keep up with the frequently gruesome nonstop action in this middle title of a trilogy that explores the intersection of morality and technology. Caution: read this after BZRK (2012) because Grant doesn’t pause for definitions or recaps, although Plath, Keats, the Twins, and other familiar characters reappear and are further developed as the plot careens through a second AFGC-BZRK close encounter. A shocking, violent, yet engrossing thrill ride of a story. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: With Grant’s Gone series finished, this looks to be the best-selling author’s flagship project. Expect it to be treated as such. Grades 10-12. --Cindy Welch

It was high tensioned and very thought provoking while it still had a nice plot.
Ashley
The underlying issue is the concept of humanity and how happiness drives us to do the things we do and how the characters try to shape the world to their needs.
Ruthsic
Some of the one-book-use characters relate circumstances which I feel didn't need so much stage time.

As enjoyable as the first, a good book for teens that are into something a bit more real than fantasy!

I didn't know this was possible but BZRK RELOADED was stronger and better than its predecessor, BZRK. There's more action and more kissing. Thank God. The romantic build up in the first book was okay at best but this book was amped with everything. I felt the need to race through the pages to find out what happened next.

So freaking impressed with this series and often disappointed at how little attention it gets. The questions these books raise = phenomenal. What is too far in ethics and control? What goes beyond medicine and science into playing God? All of these things probably go over a lot of people's heads but I think about them a lot.

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales

Quick & Dirty: Both BZRK and the Armstrong’s are back in the second part of the BZRK trilogy. Even after taking a major hit the BZRK team is not ready to surrender their freedom. They are ready to take any risks to save mankind.

Opening Sentence: Wilkes is Alive and back with us.

The Review:

I have to admit that I did not finish the first one because it was too confusing for me. All the nano and Biot references were too much science for me. I gave this one a try hoping I could get through it to give it a good review and I’m glad I did. By this book they figure you understand the nano and Biot information so they do not try to explain it as much which made reading the story more enjoyable. But for those who enjoy the science part of the story it is still there.

The narrative jumped from one group to another to another which was a little confusing to me but I finally was able to keep up. But it made it a little harder to relate to any specific character. I couldn’t relate to Sadie. I did feel badly that her family was killed but at times I thought she was a whiny rich girl. That’s why I was happy when she started to grow up and take responsibility. Also, another reason I may not have been able to relate is that I didn’t finish the first one so did not know the characters all that well.

I did enjoy the story and I agreed for the most part with BZRK. No one should be forced to give up their mind or be brainwashed in anyway. Also, the thought that someone can get into your brain sends a shiver through me. I wanted to see Plath and all the gang stop the Armstrong twins from succeeding in taking over all of humankind’s minds. There were times where I thought BZRK had overstepped.

Format: Hardcover
I was captivated by Michael Grant's first BZRK novel. The detailed focus on Plath's and Keats's indoctrination, the difference between biots and nanobots, and the goals of each biotech faction were well represented in the prose. The story was fast-paced, but Grant never lost sight of keeping the reader in-step with enough world-building and character info.

Readers now know that BZRK: RELOADED takes advantage of the foundation presented in the first series novel. Widening his worldview lens, Grant speaks from the POV of the nanobot enemies, a captive on a nanobot ship, a Sweedish spy, the President of the USA, and a variety of the BZRK biot membership (including an unhappy BZRK member). It's a POV volleyball match from Japan to the USA and places in-between.

That's a lot of plot and subplot to track, and it hits fast from page one. Don't expect a refresher course in the biotech aspects of the series. Don't look for a reminder of what happened in the first novel. Don't expect to get down in "the Meat" until you're well into the book. You don't need to open this book cover, if you haven't studied the first BZRK. Even if you have, reading the last chapter or few to have a clear picture in your mind where the warring tech factions left off would be a great idea.

Three stars means "average" to me. This novel puts forth thought-provoking moves by both SF tech groups in their take-over-the-world and save-the-world schemes. I felt like only one "side" of the conflict was really playing in the match this time- only one side expressing brilliant plans and attacks. There's too much hopping from character to character POV. Some of the one-book-use characters relate circumstances which I feel didn't need so much stage time.

Too often middle books in a series lose focus - too much teen angst, convoluted love triangles and less action. I'm happy to say this is not the case with Reloaded. Grant continues to make his readers care about his characters, and they are so well drawn that I feel as if I know each of them personally. The stakes rise as the "good" guys attempt to fight the bad guys, and we're drawn even further into the hell that is nanotech. Sadie and Noah, along with their twitcher buddies, race to save the human race - and themselves - in this non-stop thriller.

BZRK: Reloaded by Michael Grant contains action from the beginning and violent surprises! Very descriptive details bring the story to life, such as ,"...the raw liver that was Benjamin's eye socket..." Much more descriptive than BZRK. The writing is great and imaginative. The only reason I gave this book 4 stars is because I don't love it; it is not my favorite genre. I highly recommend it to male readers and sci-fi lovers!

More About the Author

Michael Grant was born in a manger.

Okay, no he wasn't. And that was a stupid thing to say. There was no manger. It was a log cabin. A log cabin in Los Angeles.

Or possibly a trailer.

And then while defending his country (technically it was his father, he was just an Army brat,) he moved all over the country and to France and became the incredibly well-educated, well-rounded, well-adjusted . . .

Yeah, okay that last part's a lie, too. The moving everywhere thing is true. But the sad reality is that Michael's a rootless, disconnected, indifferently-educated, sullen, obnoxious, disaffected misanthrope. With no hair. I mean seriously: look at the man's head. Do you see hair? No.

Where was I? I mean he.

Michael Grant is married to Katherine (K.A.) Applegate. They've been together for 30 years. Which doesn't say much for Katherine's judgment does it? And they've been writing for 20 years, sometimes as partners -- BOYFRIENDS/GIRLFRIENDS, ANIMORPHS, EVERWORLD -- and sometimes on their own.

Michael and Katherine have two kids, Jake 12 and Julia 9. (Feet tall. Get it? 12 feet tall? Ah hah hah. Yeah, okay: not funny.) Anyway, the point is that Michael Grant is the author or co-author of 150 books. Yeah: 150. Most recently the critically-acclaimed GONE and HUNGER.

No, really: critically-acclaimed by VOYA, Booklist, School Library Journal, KLIATT and Publishers Weekly. And best of all by Stephen Freaking KIng himself! Oh, yeah: THE Stephen King. Of course Kirkus dumped on him, but Michael would like to make it clear that Kirkus is in no way a collection of illiterate halfwits. No! Never would Michael say such a thing.

Michael can be reached on Twitter @theFAYZ, or on Facebook as "authorMichaelGrant."
