Publisher's Summary

The Renegades Trilogy continues, in this fiercely awaited second installment after the New York Times-bestselling Renegades by Marissa Meyer, author of the Lunar Chronicles.

Time is running out.

Together, they can save the world.

But they each other’s worst nightmare.

Nova’s double life is about to get a lot more complicated: 

As Insomnia, she is a full-fledged member of the Renegades, a syndicate of powerful and beloved superheroes. She works with Adrian’s patrol unit to protect the weak and maintain order in Gatlon City.

As Nightmare, she is an Anarchist - a group of of villains who are determined to destroy the Renegades. Nova wants vengeance against the so-called heroes who once failed her when she needed them most.

But as Nova, her feelings for Adrian are deepening, despite the fact that he is the son of her sworn enemies and, unbeknownst to Nova, he has some dangerous secrets of his own.

In this second installment of the Renegades trilogy, Nova, Adrian, and the rest of their crew – Ruby, Oscar, and Danna -- are faced with escalating crime in Gatlon City, while covert weapons and conflicting missions have Nova and Adrian questioning not only their beliefs about justice, but also the feelings they have for each other.

The line between good and evil has been blurred, but what's clear to them both is that too much power could mean the end of their city – and the world – as they know it.

Critic Reviews

"The narrators excel in portraying the two protagonists. Bittner's jovial tone captures Adrian's sense of hope and justice, while Soler snarls through antihero Nova's angst-filled diatribes. In addition, Bittner and Soler keep the large cast of secondary characters sorted out so well that it seems like there are way more than two narrators." (AudioFile)

Overall Good, Pacing a Problem

First of all, I love the way Marissa Meyer writes. She's one of my favorite authors. Her characters are always distinct and memorable. But...along with Winter, I have issues with this book. While Winter struggled with an improbable plot and to a lesser degree, pacing, the core of this book's issue was slow pacing. I found myself getting bored with the descriptions of artifacts. I wanted action in this book and it disappointed me how much of it was devoted to description. So I'd say the book was flawed but overall enjoyable. What I loved was: 1. The Characters. They come to life. Each different than the next. 2. That ending. Set up well, you can tell Meyer is a good writer and where she's going (hopefully, please don't be another Allegiant). I don't want to be too critical, because I enjoyed it, but it does have its struggles. I'm still not used to Audiobooks so I like the female actor doing female voices and the male actor doing male voices. A lot. The problem is when they do the opposite gender. It distracts me by how fake they sound. I don't know if that's common in Audiobooks or not, so I'm not going to knock the book for it. Overall, I would recommend, but definitely the second book in a series. I hope it ends well, or else I'd say this story could've been told in two books.

More "Lifetime Channel" than "SciFi" Channel..

This book spends 95 percent of the time with the main character moaning over and over and over and OVER again about how "I love Adrian... but I can't love Adrian... but... I DO love Adrian.." and only about 5 percent actual super hero story. It was a huge disappointment considering that the first book was pretty good.

Blatantly Rushed

It's a cool world and plot but Marissa always patters around insignificant, repetitive, platonic scenes and waits till the last 2 hours for any actual plot development to happen.

Not to mention her characters are making less and less sense as she contradicts herself without any definitive explanation to it.

It just seems like she writes (pretty good stuff, mind you!) but it doesn't connect till she stumbles through enough of it to find a plotline..

Better than the first one

Most times I found 2nd book in a series was lacking the depth of the first. This time I was excited as the plot progressed and on the edge of my seat.
We learned more about secondary characters and back stories that did not feel like flash backs, or trivial information.
I am anxiously awaiting the next one. If this author keeps getting better she is limitless.
Nova, is full of flaws and strengths, a real person someone can root for.
What I find fascinating is I was rooting for both good guys and bad guys wondering and realizing neither is black and white but gray areas to both.
Max is my favorite, and I have a crush on Oscar too.
can't wait to read number 3 as soon as its available.

Loved it!

It was even better than the first book, which I also enjoyed. The twists don't go where I expect them too. So, there are plenty of surprises. I love the characters. I loved the pacing and the story. I love the narrators. I just loved this book. I like it better than her Lunar Chronicles. I liked it better than Brandon Sanderson's Steelheart. This is a total must read.

Amazing

This book is so good, I’m just mad that I have to wait till November for the finale! I personally didn’t find it slow to build like some reviewers. This book is hard to put down (or turn off if you use audible). Highly recommended!
