Synopsis: From #1 New York Times-bestselling author Marissa Meyer, comes a high-stakes world of adventure, passion, danger, and betrayal.
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.
Why I'm Waiting:
This book is literally checking all the boxes for me. 1.) It's a book about super powered people. 2.) It's about heroes and villains and I'm sure explores what it means to be a good guy and a bad guy. 3.) One of the main character wants revenge and the other wants justice. Which are two themes I love being explored in a book. Seriously this is such a me book.
But on top of all that it's written by Marissa Meyer who is one of my all time favorite authors. I have enjoyed every single Marissa Meyer book I have read. I loved The Lunar Chronicles and liked Heartless but I am so excited for a new series from her. More fantastic characters and thrilling plots, more cool worlds and interesting settings. More Marissa Meyer.
I was hoping to get a copy of this at ALA but they didn't have any to hand out. But that's totally fine because I have already preordered a copy. I cannot wait for it to show up on my door step so I can devour it and see how Marissa handles superheroes and super villains!
