Renegades by Marissa Meyer; 552 pages
Gatlon City is home to the Renegades. They are a group of people with abilities who fought to end the Age of Anarchy. They were deemed heroes and when the Anarchists were defeated the Renegades took control of the city.
Nova’s family was killed during the Age of Anarchy. The Renegades failed to save them and she was raised by the Anarchists, hating the Renegades.
Adrian was raised among the Renegades. But to him something is wrong with the system. It’s no longer about heroes and villains and the Renegades may no longer be the fix the world needs anymore.
I don’t know if it was just that I wasn’t in the mood for a fantasy book or if it was the super hero theme but it took me forever to read this book. It wasn’t because I didn’t like the story, because I did, I’m not really sure what it was.
I enjoyed the super hero/villain theme. It really isn’t something you see too much of in books, at least not where it’s stated so outright. I thought the book was really well written, even though it could be cliche at times. The characters were also really well written and there was a lot of character development throughout the book. The ending was totally wild too! I’m looking forward to the next book coming out so we can see what’s going to happen next!
