Nova Artino, niece of the infamous Ace Anarchy, is a member of a criminal gang of archvillains bent on taking down the Renegades, the superhero syndicate who defeated Ace and other rival gangs and restored order to the city of Gatlon.

While I was reading this, I did not want to put it down, but now that I'm done I'm pretty lukewarm toward it. I don't know that it contributes anything new to the genre, but it was fairly fun, and I like the moral dilemma that it set up. I hope the moral dilemma gets explored more. I felt a little let down by that. It seemed to get forgotten in the action.

My take away from this story was: you can't judge a book by its cover. The "bad" guys are fighting for some "good" reasons. And the "good" guys aren't "good" all the time either. This novel explores how and why we come to believe the things we believe - and points out that we may seem different, but we are closer in our views from people who we think have opposing viewpoints than we may realize. A good read.

I LOVED this book! It was a little confusing at first... but the cast of characters in the front really helped, and I warmed up really quickly and couldn't put it down. I LOVE all of Marissa Meyer's books and can't wait for the next ones!

Characters: 8/10
Plot: 8/10
Writing: 9/10
I adore Marissa Meyer. I adore superheroes. But I struggled a little to enjoy this as much as I felt I should have. I think both main characters were well-developed. What was hard for me to enjoy was that it fit *too* well into the superhero genre. I wanted something unexpected and different, but it was moderately predictable. A few things caught me off-guard, but there were several things that I figured out before the characters and the "dramatic irony" served more as an annoyance than a plot-propeller. I certainly intend to read the sequel, but I hope for some more surprises.

I loved this book so much! It was very inspiring, and while I’d dint think I would like the characters, I fell in love with all of them. There were a lot of positive messages in this book about bravery and heroism, and I’m totally excited for the next one to come out! It seems very long but due to all of the xfitment and amazing plot twists, it was a quick read! 🤗

Looks like a long book, but it is a fast read. Different - really enjoyable. Looking forward to the concluding book coming out in 2018.

There is no need for this book to be this long. This story could have been told in 250, 300 pages, easily. There is so much fluff, you could stuff several Captain Chromium dolls with it, and still have enough left over to make a pillow that Nova won't use. Seriously, she might not sleep, but this book might make you want to. I'm not a big super hero fan, but even I can smell the tropes. The universe is somehow bland and preachy at the same time. We're told what it means to be a hero in the last few chapters, and how you don't need powers to be super, but it comes across as a lecture, not inspirational. The powers are interesting, if we could explore what they really could do. The ideas are there, but they're buried under uninteresting nonsense that could have been solved with a decent editor. But considering the popularity of the author, I imagine the editors sat on the ground and let her step on their hands rather than touch the book with anything critical.

From #1 New York Times-bestselling author Marissa Meyer, comes a high-stakes world of adventure, passion, danger, and betrayal.

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.

Sexual Content: There is a gay person in the very first chapter. I did not even finish reading it. I closed the book. That is grose.
