Recommendation: 'Reboot' by Amy Tintera

 Sometimes dead doesn't mean dead, and if you are unlucky enough to have the dreaded KDH virus when you die then you come back as a Reboot.  Five years ago Wren died, and when she woke up a staggering 178 minutes she became Wren 178, the least human and most feared Reboot of them all.

Her job is simple - she has to do whatever the Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation (HARC) wants her to, even if it means hunting down humans and other Reboots.  Wren is fearless and the perfect Reboot, she follows orders, has no doubts or guilt, and she trains the next generation of Reboots to be just as successful as she is.  She is the perfect tool for the HARC and she has no trouble following their orders - until she meets Callum.

Set in the remains of Texas, Reboot is a grim look at the future we may all face, a world where being human is not necessarily a good thing - and what you come back as when you die may be more human than you are lead to believe.  It is not surprising that the movie is already on the horizon, and there is the tantalizing hint of a sequel.
