Goodreads Synopsis:

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 a villain who has the power to end them both.


Marissa Meyer has done it again! This book is so awesome. I loved this superhero story.

The characters have a lot of depth and history. Adrian and Nova have both suffered and learned from some of their mistakes.

The world building was great in this story too. I kept imagining Gatlon City as New York City. Especially with the big parade that opens the story.

One thing that I didn’t like was the long fight scenes. They took up multiple chapters. The one at the beginning was so confusing since I wasn’t familiar with the characters. I had to keep flipping back to see who did what. I wish that more characters were introduced before that.

I don’t know how I’m going to wait until next November to read the sequel! It’s going to be a long year.

  1. Great review! I’ve read a couple of reviews for this one, and all of them were pretty pleased with the book. Thanks for mentioning the long fight scenes, though. That was a critique that I hadn’t heard yet! 🙂
