In the new world led by the Rebooters, former Proxy Syd is the figurehead of the Revolution, beloved by some and hated by others. Liam, a seventeen-year-old Rebooter, is Syd’s bodyguard and must protect him with his life. But armed Machinists aren’t the only danger.

People are falling ill—their veins show through their skin, they find it hard to speak, and sores erupt all over their bodies. Guardians, the violent enforcers of the old system, are hit first, and the government does nothing to help. The old elites fall next, and in the face of an indifferent government, Syd decides it’s up to him to find a cure . . . and what he discovers leaves him stunned.


I really liked Alex London’s Proxy – a futuristic Sci-Fi retelling of The Whipping Boy. (Lots of people seem to not be aware that it’s a retelling. It is! And it’s awesome!) The main character, Syd, was fantastic, and I’m really excited to see more of him in the sequel. Plus if you’ve read Proxy… THAT ENDING!!! Ugh I can’t. All the feels. I need closure so badly!

Have you read Proxy? Are you excited for the sequel?? :D

What book are YOU anxiously awaiting today?

Link me to your WoW post and I’ll be sure to stop by! :)

  1. I am one of those people that had no idea it was a retelling! Oh my gosh. Now I feel like I need to have read it already! i knew I would eventually… But this changes everything. :) And I love the cover for Guardian; it’s so cool. Great pick!!

  2. To be honest, I’ve never heard of this series before! It’s good to know that it comes highly recommended from you though. Thanks for stopping by earlier!
