Description

NOW A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!

From #1 New York Times-bestselling author Marissa Meyer, comes a high-stakes world of adventure, passion, danger, and betrayal.

Secret Identities.
Extraordinary Powers.
She wants vengeance. He wants justice.

The Renegades are a syndicate of prodigies—humans with extraordinary abilities—who emerged from the ruins of a crumbled society and established peace and order where chaos reigned. As champions of justice, they remain a symbol of hope and courage to everyone...except the villains they once overthrew.

Nova has a reason to hate the Renegades, and she is on a mission for vengeance. As she gets closer to her target, she meets Adrian, a Renegade boy who believes in justice—and in Nova. But Nova's allegiance is to the villains who have the power to end them both.

Lol can’t think of a title

TLC was amazing, and then Wires and Nerve happened. Didn’t even try with Heartless, cause clearly Marissa Meyer was riding on the fame wave that TLC created and Renegades could never be compared to the greatness that TLC is/was. I knew it was going to be terrible but gave it a fair try a couple of months ago. I wasn’t disappointed at all, cause I knew I was going to be let down.

This is a review I wrote a couple months ago after finishing it, it’s edited a little bit, sentences are added, but it’s accurate to how I felt at the end of the book:

I did appreciate that there was a smooth transition between their (Nova and who ever her love interest was) three personas, I didn’t feel like they were different people (but different enough to where it was convincing for the other characters, for us). Starting off the characters were very well written, the main characters at least, and then no character development happened.

The beginning was ridiculous, starting off I assumed that Nova knew what she was doing because it seemed like she had been doing this for years, and then I find out this is the first attack in what 5 years? or what ever. Then the knock-off Joker is sacrificed but the word sacrifice can’t even be used to describe it because nothing is being sacrificed. Knock-off Joker means nothing to us (the audience).

The plot twists were VERY predictable though the one at the end, the cliffhanger, caught me off guard because I expected it earlier in the book. Like, she just randomly introduced Nova’s Uncle at the end after stating again and again that he was dead, like what? I felt I missed 10 chapters because key details that were constantly referenced to weren’t explained (I may have missed something but I doubt it). At the same time, the information that was given wasn’t organized so she’d give us need to know information after the event it was needed for. I didn’t have all of the puzzle pieces and I definitely didn’t have the final image at the end.

Everything felt fake-ish, nothing was deep (I did finish To Kill A Mockingbird while reading this so that may be affecting my opinion though I feel it’s still a valid argument). Characters had no *interesting* development they just met each other and I guess started to like each other, settings were trying to be edgy but they weren’t, overall one word to describe the book: shallow.

Though what she was getting at, at the end, the whole, “I’m actually gonna try to write now”, was fairly interesting, I wish we got more of that.

I am excited to read the second book because I do want to see what happens in the end and I expect things to pick up, though they are low expectations. Very low. I feel the novel is pulling on old concepts: settings, character structures, and writing techniques, that you find in comic books but the plot is a new concept. The plot and its twists could’ve been amazing, but the use of the old concepts really weighed it down. It could’ve been an amazing book, but it wasn’t, sadly.

As a HUGE fan of TLC and MM I was excited to see her new works, but as an average reader, it was mediocre at best.

Amazing book

I absolutely loved this book it was fantastically written and extremely interesting I can’t wait for the second one to come out!

Best book and author ever!!!

This is my new favorite book! It will leave you craving more. I can’t wait for the next book. 100% recommend.
