Book Review – Renegades by Marissa Meyer

renegadesSecret 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 a villain who has the power to end them both.

I received this book from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

I absolutely loved this book! I do love superheroes and Meyer’s writing though so I’m not too surprised! It is a little slow in places but the ending left me reeling!

Okay so I will admit that it places it’s probably not 5 star material and I’d have liked to have seen more about nova’s politics and her discussing that with any of the Renegades. Her and Adrian discussing that was really interesting for me. As was the well meaning but sinister undertones of all things to do with the council, I’m looking forward to getting more of that in the next book.

And that cliffhanger! Oh my gosh. Haha.

But when it comes down to it, I really enjoyed this. It’s an easy and quick read full of fun. And I will always love a story about a person outsmarting others, especially those of “greater ability”.
