Renegades by Marissa Meyer
“As long as there are superheroes, there will be people who rely on them far too much. I think humanity would be better off if there were no prodigies at all.”
Nova is an Anarchist – a girl on a mission for vengeance after the heroes sworn to protect her family failed her.
Adrian is a Renegade – a boy with extraordinary abilities who believes in justice, and in Nova.
They should be sworn enemies, but Nova finds herself torn between Adrian and the Renegades, and a villain that could destroy them both.
There are many dangerous people in this world, but there are also many good people. Brave people. No matter how bad things get, we have to remember that. So long as there are heroes in this world, there’s hope that tomorrow night might be better.
This had a lot of hype when it was first released, and I avoided it for a while – but I fell in love with the UK paperback cover and picked it up a while ago, then of course I let it sit on my shelves for ages before actually getting round to reading it, but I’m really glad I finally did!
