Override (glitch #2) by Heather Anastasiu Review

14759331Book Blurb (from goodreads):
Zoe is free. She has escaped the enslavement of the Community, disconnected from the hardware that had controlled her every thought and emotion, and evaded capture by the Chancellor intent on killing her. She is finally free, but she is far from safe.

Zoe and Adrien hide themselves from detection at the Foundation, an academy that trains teen glitchers to fight in the Resistance movement. Together, Zoe and her new team of superhuman fighters must risk their lives to rescue other glitchers and humans from the Chancellor's control. Challenges abound at every turn, and Adrien, who has become silent, distant, and tormented by his visions of the future, only adds to the growing certainty of defeat. But worst of all, as Zoe's team fights against impossible odds, distrust and betrayal leads to the terrible discovery that their greatest threat could already be lurking behind the safe walls of the Foundation.

My review: 
This book was everything that you could expect from a second book in a series. In my opinion this book was not as good as the first one but was still a fun read. 
It was hard to create theories in this book because as soon as you think that you know what is going to happen it doesn't. 
The plot twist in this book was brilliantly done. You didn't expect a thing until it was too late.
I was expecting more of a love triangle in this book and not just Adrien and Max, but maybe also one of the other girls which were introduced into the story but it did not happen which made me a very happy bookworm. 
The plot of this book was strong and clear from the start. The book had a direction and Heather Anastasiu stuck to it very well and managed to put in twists and turns.
The end is so heart breaking. I DON'T UNDERSTAND! What was Heather Anastasiu doing when she wrote the final chapters? Did she cry? Or did she sit down, laugh and have a cup of tea with Satan (yes that is from instagram but it is true) 
Overall the book was well written, the plot twist was well done and is perfect for dystopian book lovers (like me) 
Even though this was a second book I felt like Heather Anastasiu did a good job on it.
I give it 3 out of 5 stars like the first one:
