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. (Goodreads)

I’ve had a copy of Renegades by Marissa Meyer sitting on my shelf since it was first released last year, and for some reason I’m just now getting to read it. (I can’t explain why, just that it kept getting pushed back farther and farther on my TBR for some reason.) BUT, I was determined to finally read the book this year, especially with the sequel, Archenemies, releasing this year as well. I am thrilled to tell you that I finally read the book, and I am now kicking myself for not having read it sooner!!

There are so many things to like about Renegades. I love the storyline, which is all about humans, (both heroes and villains), with all kinds of interesting superpowers and how they use them for both good and evil. I think the superpower parts was one of my most favorite things about the book, as I found them, along with how they were used, to be extremely fascinating. And since the story is told from two different characters’ viewpoints, one who is a Renegade, and one who is an Anarchist, we get to see both sides of the story, which was awesome. The book ends with a pretty massive cliffhanger, and thank goodness the next book is fixing to release, because I really want to dive into it ASAP!

Another thing I really enjoyed about this book were the characters. There are SO many in the story to like! Nova was definitely my favorite, and I totally found her quite relatable at times. I’m super curious to follow her, Adrian, and all the rest of the characters through the rest of this series to see what happens next for them!

Overall; Renegades was a really fun read, and I am seriously kicking myself for having not read the book sooner! I will most definitely be diving into Archenemies right away, and I’m thrilled that I don’t have to wait a for the sequel to be released, because I’m dying to know what’s going to happen next!! Fans of Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles series, which I am also reading at the moment, definitely need to check out the Renegades series. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!!
