Renegades by Marissa Meyer
Book Rating: 4/5
I was not planning on reading Renegades. I had seen a few photos of it online when it had just come out, but it didn’t really get my attention until I had it physically in my hands. I found it in the bookshop and it was the last one. I admired the artwork of the cover (let’s be honest, it is stunning!) and started reading what it was about. When I saw it was basically a superheroes!AU I was sold. I paid for it with no further thought and started reading it right away. In fact, I paused all the other books I was reading so I could read this one.
While the story line is actually really slow, I didn’t mind at all. I mean, while I was reading the book, I felt as if a lot of things were going on. But then, when I reflected about it, nothing really happened. It probably makes no sense, but that’s how I felt. I do have to give Marissa Meyer credit for creating such an amazing world. While I was reading it, I really felt as if I had traveled and was living there with the characters. And not just the whole place the author invented, everything that made the books was incredible. The superpowers were very creative, just the normal cliché kinda powers. There were some things that I would have never thought about, but admired a lot after reading it. Her writing is flawless and I’m in love with it.
But what I loved the most about the book, was the character Nova. I’m not much of a main character lover, but this one I adored. I just clicked with her and the whole conflict she has during the story…I could just feel it. The decision between good and bad, but somehow it’s not just black and white. There are grey areas everywhere and I loved that. Seeing flaws in the good guys and some great qualities in the bad guys. I really liked it.
