Renegades is the first book in Marissa Meyer’s new duology. Meyer is the author of the bestselling Lunar Chronicles, so this book had a lot of anticipation from the fans of her other books. Renegades, like the Lunar Chronicles, is a dystopian type book.
Renegades is set in a world where there are superheros and supervillains. The story takes place after the revolution that in a typical trope would be the plot of many young adult novels. However in this story, the superheros, known as the Renegades, rule the city and many superheroes in other parts of the world are also taking over. The villians that remain after their defeat live in the abandoned subway tunnels, forever holding a grudge on supposed superheros. When the villains get an opportunity to have one of their own infiltrate the Renegades headquarters to become a spy, they take it.
This book is a unique take on the typical superhero versus super villain story. Having both the supposed villain and supposed hero’s point of view makes the story all the more interesting. From the villain’s point of view the reader is able to understand why they do what they do and sympathize with them. It is quite refreshing to not have all negative opinions on the antagonist of a book.
Overall this book was a four point five out of five stars. Anyone who loves any of Meyer’s other books will love this as well. It left the reader wanting to know what happens next, the perfect cliffhanger for a duology. The second and final book in the series will be published on November 6th, 2018 for all of those who enjoyed this book and can’t wait for the second.
