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.
One the most anticipated books for me this year was Renegades. When I could get my paws on the earc I was so happy, but sadly, it was not as amazing as I expected to be.
I was expecting a book about cool villains or at least SMART villains, I mean, they almost win if it wasn’t for the variable they didn’t count on, but through all the book they act without thinking on the big picture, they were… silly.
Then we have Nova. I like her character, what I don’t like is how little motivation she shows, I mean, you expect of her a little more passion on her mission, she already got the brains and the muscle.
Renegades wasn’t the epic tale of villains versus heroes I expected, although Marissa Meyer does a great work narrative speaking.
