Blurb Description:You live. You love. You die. Now RUN.
Every minute, 108 people die. On October 14th, 2016, from 9:31-9:32 p.m. EDT, 23 of those deaths will be teenagers. Now they are humanity’s last hope for survival. Awakened in a world they barely recognize and hunted by mechanical horrors, these teens search for answers amidst the ruins of civilization. Fate, love, and loyalty face off in this adrenaline -pumping YA adventure.
Team-written by some of today’s most popular YA authors, ReMade is brought to you by Matthew Cody (Super), Andrea Phillips (Revision), Kiersten White (And I Darken), Gwenda Bond (Girl on a Wire), Carrie Harris (Bad Taste in Boys), and E. C. Myers (The Silence of Six).
May likes being in control: with an obsessive drive to succeed and her aim set on Harvard, she knows how to keep her life on course. Plucked from her whirlwind of tests and achievement charts, and dropped into a world where civilization itself has crumbled, she wants more than just answers. But living with deadly allergies means you’re always on the razor edge – one peanut, one bee sting, one toe out of line could be your downfall, and nobody wants to die twice.Season One will unfold across 15 episodes beginning September 14th, with a new installment dropping every Wednesday until the season finale on December 21st. Jump into this digital serial, available in both text and audio, and find out what the future of fiction holds.

Before you start this review, you should download you FREE copy of Book One in this AWESOME season here.
Or, you can read my review of Episode 1, Shadows and Dreams, written by Matthew Cody here.
While I wasn’t entirely sold on this series after episode 1, this pretty much sealed the deal for me.
Hungry, the second episode in the first season of ReMade introduces you to other characters that were already on Earth as Holden and Seyah make their way down in the space pod.
All around them, people were woken up from dreams of pain and torture, were found by a hairy caretaker, Umta, and then thrown into a pod that needed human activation, only to realize that they were in SPACE and making their way down to earth.
But is it even Earth at all?
And the last thing everyone remembers from their normal lives is dying.
Armed with basically no knowledge about where they are or how they got here, the teenagers need to learn to survive in an environment where they know nothing.
Hungry is a lot more fast paced, and even more adrenaline filled than Shadows and Dreams, mostly because it is putting a few things together, all while introducing you to a whole new set of interesting characters, and sets the pace up for the next thirteen episodes.
Told in over-achiever May’s viewpoint, we find out a little about what the “caretakers” did to the characters up there, and also receive a backstory of who May was, before she was ReMade.
The entire episode felt very Maze-Runner like and I LOVED IT.
So, for any dystopian fan looking for something new, you should check ReMade out!
