“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 a villain who has the power to end them both.”
I absolutely love everything Marissa Meyer has written. I was so happy to get back to her books. I really had no idea what I was getting into when I started this and that is ok. I like it that way most of the time. Nothing disappointed me.
So lets start with some of the Renegades characters I like….ALL OF THEM! Well the entire Sketch team anyway! There are a few other Renegades that I won’t shed a tear when they die. But out of the team I like Oscar “Smokescreen” Silva the best! Of course Adrian “Sketch” Everhart is good too. Seems a little over-confident and maybe needs to be taken down a few notches. I didn’t get to know Danna too much cause of what happened towards the beginning of the book. So I am hoping to see more of her in the next book. And Ruby seems like a total doll and someone I’d love to hang out with.
Now we had the Renegade Council. Man oh man! I really HATE all of them at the moment in superhero mode. I do like Hugh and Simon when they are just regular husband/husband (no it’s not a spoiler) form taking care of their family. They are adorable together.
Ok now we go to the Anarchists. Nova “Nightmare” Artina. She came seem a bit annoying but she has been through hell since she was like 6 years old. So I am ignoring of some the “tough girl” attitude because I know she is going to change eventually. I am very curious about Phobia. Real name is unknown. Very mysterious guy. Honey is cute and adorable but not someone you want to piss off. Leroy seems like a pretty cool dude. Winston is creepy as hell in a could be serial killer way and Ingrid….well I can’t talk about Ingrid right now…..
And last but certainty not least is Max…not a whole is known about Max. I adore the kid and feel sorry for him. It took a while to get the back story on Max but I was totally blown away and love him.
Ok so let’s get to the actually story. Marissa had me going. It was so hard to tell who really was the superheros and who was the villains. It’s not as easy to decide as you would think. Renegades are the supposed superheroes and the anarchists are supposed to be the villians. But I don’t know. It’s tricky for sure.
I’m interested to see how to brings it all to an end in the next book. Since I heard its a duology. I have a crap ton of questions.
That ending blew me away. I had to pick my jaw up off the floor for sure. I had no idea that was coming at all and it’s going to make book 2 even more interesting!
