Umta (ReMade 1.5) - ARC Review (Diverse Reads)

You live. You love. You die. Now RUN. ReMade.

Every minute, 108 people die. 
On October 14th, 2016, from 9:31-9:32 p.m. EDT, 23 of those deaths will be teenagers. 
Now they are humanity’s last hope for survival. 

Awakened in a post-apocalyptic world and hunted by mechanical horrors, these teens search for answers amidst the ruins of civilization. Fate, love, and loyalty face off in this adrenaline -pumping YA adventure.

ReMade will unfold across 15 episodes. "Umta" is the fifth episode.

Even in a group of misfits, Umta sticks out. An adult with more history than any of the youths around her can possibly imagine, she knows about survival – and suffering. Brought back and remade seemingly to take care of the helpless children around her, she plays the mysterious guide and hunter with skill…but despite her knowledge, she is just as vulnerable as all the rest when the caretakers make their long-dreaded return. 

This episode written by Matthew Cody.

Serial Breakdown

This book was given to me by NetGalley for an honest review* 

This is one of the best episodes yet! So action packed! We also get to see where Umta comes from. I'm guessing she's from around the prehistoric times. She is so very caring and sees the teenagers as her dead sons. She just doesn't want these teenagers to die... again.

No one wants to listen to Umta but Holden and his crush. She keeps telling them all to leave... to get further into the jungle but they don't and they pay the price. A lot of people die in this episode. Even some really needed characters die. It's very sad but also at the same time, I'm glad to see something is finally happening. 

I wonder where they will go from here... who else will die? When will they start to see why they are here? Still so many questions! I can't wait to see where this goes.
