When technology fulfills every dream, reality becomes a nightmare.
Below the streets of New State, the undergrounders fight to remain free of the technological control of the world above. Every night, Yara risks her life fighting New State’s deadliest weapons, the drones. Half human and half machine, their living half tortured until everything human is gone, the drones have only one objective. Kill. And they do it with exacting precision.
Yara is good at her job and committed to her raids on New State. Until one of those raids brings her face-to-face with Joshua, a New State citizen who doesn’t quite fit her preconceived expectations. After a couple of awkward encounters, he shows her the meaning of hooking up—a computer simulation that allows people to live out their fantasies—without the complication of emotional entanglements or physical reality. But what Yara feels for Joshua is very real. And it’s punishable by law.
As she and Joshua grow closer, she convinces him to leave New State for her underground cause. But as the unrest between New State and the underground escalates, and the drones move in to destroy her world, nothing goes as planned. Families are arrested, loyalties are strained, and Yara’s forced to choose between her people and her feelings. The wrong choice could mean the end of her people, and reality could slip away—forever…

If you enjoy a bit of a romantic story and a fast paced plot you will probably love Remote. The author Lisa Acerbo has no problem bringing the future to the eyes of her readers. But this new future is not the happy go lucky future that many envision. 

 A futuristic world that uses technological advances in order to have super realistic fantasies come true. Acerbo creates a masterpiece filled with in depth characters, and a bit of a romantic, yet extremely entertaining YA sci fi novel. 


I recommend for all you sci fi lovers that enjoy a good little romance too! I rate this book 4 stars!

  2. I really enjoyed this book, it reminds me of some of the prophecies that we hear about materialism. Technology goes hand in hand with materialism. Excellent book!
