Publisher's Summary

The United States have fallen. A new power has risen in North America, but now, a terrifying virus is spreading across the countryside. Once infected, people change, mutating into superhuman creatures known as the Chead. Wherever they walk, death follows. Desperate to defend its citizens, the government launches the Praegressus Project - an experimental program to enhance the human race.
Elizabeth Flores was just a normal girl - until the Chead slaughtered her parents and made her a fugitive. With winter approaching she seeks refuge in the city of Sacramento, but the hunters are waiting. Abducted off the streets, she's spirited away to a facility deep in the Californian mountains. There, Liz wakes in an iron cage - and she's not alone.
In the opposite cage, Christopher Sanders stands wrongfully accused of treason. Along with Liz, he has just become a volunteer in the Praegressus Project. Stripped of their rights, they will soon learn there is little separating humanity from the monsters they seek to destroy. The two must work together if they want to survive, but even then, their chances are slim. Of course, only the lucky get to die.
Blending the insane experiments of Stranger Things and the haunting dystopia of The Hunger Games, fans will love this thrilling new series. Discover a future where the powerful rule without mercy, and nothing is ever as it seems. With hints of YA Dystopia, Genetic Scifi, Urban Fantasy and just a touch of Romance, the Praegressus Project truly has something for everyone. Enter a new world with New York Times Bestselling Author Aaron Hodges.

I've tried to get through this and can't!

With audiobooks, the idea is to capture your listener's mind and to keep them engaged and entertained. The two ways to accomplish this difficult task are through good writing and a great performance (narration). After nearly a month of trying to get through this book, I've finally given up!

The difference between a good narrator and a bad one, isn't necessarily his/ her ability to read the book, rather to perform it. I didn't feel connected to this story. I got close to 18 chapters in and I was bored the entire time.

I'm typically a fan of this genre and after reading the summary was excited to listen, unfortunately the disappointment set in pretty quickly. I wanted to give the author and narrator the benefit of the doubt (because I received this copy as a gift for an honest and unbiased review), but it got to a point where I'd be listening for five minutes and all I could think about was how bored I was.

Interesting start for a new franchise

What made the experience of listening to Rebirth the most enjoyable?

If you like dystopian futures with strong elements of 'rooted' science fiction, (by which I mean that the civilization's tech level fell and is slowly being rebuilt, but this story focuses on a desperate government looking for weapons to defend themselves.

Which character – as performed by Michael Stene – was your favorite?

I personally loved the character of Sam, written as a descendant of Native Americans and seemingly unflappable in the face of any setback. So I'll give points for Hodges for expanding the cast beyond the typical white boy & girl. In fact, most of the characters were POC.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Near the end, one of the characters is hurt badly, and another sacrifices themselves in an attempt to save the first.

Any additional comments?

I'd love to hear more about the history of this world, where the West Coast states of the US seceded from the US and fought another civil war, wherein DC was destroyed and the United States government crippled. It was such great worldbuilding, especially since it was all given through the eyes of the two protagonists. Although, to be honest, the romance wasn't necessary.
