  • Emily May
    2 1/2 stars. I'm reminding myself while I'm writing this that I really didn't like Meyer's Cinder but went on to enjoy the rest of the series. Maybe Meyer is just not great at beginnings. Maybe I'm already feeling burned out on this new "It" genre featuring superhero stories. All I know is that Renegades didn't really pick up until the second half and, looking back, I don't get the sense that this first book really had a story arc. There was no c...

    THAT was freaking awesome!! Nova is a girl called Nightmare. She's part of the Anarchists group. They are the villains, but not everything is as it seems. The thing is, the Anarchists and the "good guys" the Renegades both have bad people in their groups and good people. Nova (Nightmare) wants to take the Renegades down. She was raised by her uncle, Ace after her family perished. Ace was the leader of the Anarchists. Both of these groups have pow...

    I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH. So fun so complex so interesting – a must read!!Other than the epic superheroes, what intrigues me most about Renegades is that it focuses on the concept of anarchy, which appears to be lacking in YA despite the abundance of dystopian/futuristic novels already on the market. The history of the time of anarchy combined with active anarchists in the present story made it very unique in that manner. I clearly don’t agr...

    It’s with a heavy heart that I must announce that I’ve got like, 2 feelings (maybe 2.5) about this book and not all of them are Good.I'm trying to come to terms with the possibility that I will never form a meaningful emotional connection with a Marissa Meyer book like I did with The Lunar Chronicles. It's like my heart closes for maintenance when it comes to anything else written by her. I don't know. There must have been a dimensional hiccu...

    This was SO fun! I went into it not knowing anything about the story itself, and I was so pleasantly surprised. Think of it as a superhero mashup told from opposing side POVs in a totally unique way. I was worried that with the overcrowded superhero media these days, the constant similar retellings and such, that this one wouldn't stand on its own.It totally did. Super fun and unique, while still throwing nods at other stories.Before I say anythi...

    Ok I honestly had no idea what to expect from this (except that it was Marissa Meyer yay), so the whole thing was SUCH a fun surprise. Ughhh this is one of those books where I'm going to fail miserably at explaining what it's about because I need to use my hands to map out the tangled web of identities and goals...So Nova starts out with the "villain" Anarchists and Adrian is with the superhero Renegades, but Nova eventually goes undercover to tr...

    I feel like the amount of expectations I put on this book just made it bound to disappoint me. Like, think about it realistically, how is ANY book ever going to live up to the glory that is Scarlet??You just…can’t compete with that ya know.My feelings and thoughts summed up: The Pros - I love me some anti-heroes, give me bad guys with tragic back stories and complex development that make me rethink my entire moral compass - The ending was bl...
  • Lola Reviewer
    From fairytale retellings to... Marvel-reminiscent superheroes. Did anyone expect it? I didn't. In my mind, Marissa Meyer still had Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, hell The Princess and the Frog, as well as many other fairytales to write entire books about. But you have to admire her(?) decision to write about something different. She has no idea if her new series will be well-received or completely hated, and yet she still dared to wri...
  • Cait (Paper Fury)
    WOW WHAT A RELIEF THAT'S OVER. Um...excuse me. I absolutely adored The Lunar Chronicles, but unfortunately everything since then has fallen flat for me with this author. I am sad. But I legit found this so tedious and cliche and boring and it was nearly 600 pages. Mate, the only thing that needs to be 600 pages is a box of napkins. Ok so THOUGHTS. I do have some on the rare occasion.+ Full disclosure: superhero books and I are always iffy.The act...

    One week into the new year and I've already finished three books? I'm on a role. Maybe I just developed a new superpower.RTC

    WrensReads Review:Marissa Meyer is too legit to quit. She has never failed to suck me into one of her stories, and this one does NOT disappoint. I’m legit hooked.Anarchists vs. Renegades“All revolutions come with death; some must die so that others might have life. It is a tragedy, but it is also a truth.” Villains vs. HeroesThis was so well written. There is a lot of political angles of this. This is a world ruled by heroes, and the promis...

    I hadn’t even planned on reading this and finished it in three days. It was sooooooo good & fun & dark but also funny at the right times and GREAT! Such a fun spin on the superhero/super villain type of story, and I NEED the next one!

    PSA: THIS BOOK SUCKED BUT NOT BECAUSE OF THE GAY DADSI don’t think anything Marissa Meyer writes will ever live up to the series that The Lunar Chronicles was, because this was HORRIBLE in comparison to that. I could’ve reread the whole Lunar Chronicles series in the time it took me to finish this AND enjoyed it all much more than this one.🌹 PLOTMy main problem here is with HOW. SLOW. IT. WAS. For a book this size, it should’ve been acti...

    You know, I didn't get very far and usually, I wouldn't mark it as read since I barely made it past chapter two, but I feel like it's my job to inform those who want to know what to expect, especially since I hadn't been expecting what I found so soon in this book.Before I even begin my review, my opinion here is controversial, but guess what? It's my opinion. I don't want to see hate on here. If you liked this book, awesome. I'm happy for you. B...
  • Joshua Gabriel (Ever Bookish Josh)
    Hero or villain, all prodigies were powerful. All prodigies were dangerous.Renegades is actually the first book I've read about superheroes and villains. Novels about such characters (e.g. Batman and Wonder Woman) have been trendy nowadays, but I never bothered to add them to my TBR because the film industry has already made me so familiar with the Marvel/DC universe. With that in mind, I probably wouldn't have requested this book from the publis...

    4.75I did not expect to love this as much as I did...but it honestly could have been half the length.
  • Alaina Meserole
    It's not weird or anything that I can't wait till I reread this book, right?!I love Marissa Meyer and I was pretty sure that I would love Renegades.Yup, I did. I loved it.When I walked into Barnes and Noble with my boyfriend - he had no idea that he would end up buying me this book (plus a lot more). Yeah, never take me to a book store and say "get whatever you want" you will regret it.Anyways, I loved Marissa's take on superheros - it was a supe...

    I know I should have waited until they were all released, but the temptation was too strong. I couldn't resist. AND NOW LOOK WHAT I'VE DONE TO MYSELF! I am an emotional wreck waiting for the next one, and then I will have to hope there are more. I couldn't resist the temptation. It was staring at me, and I just had to read it. Still, I have no regrets because it was so incredibly awesome.Let me outline some of my thoughts in an attempt at coheren...
