Publisher's Summary

From number one New York Times best-selling author Marissa Meyer comes a high-stakes world of adventure, passion, danger, and betrayal. This new audiobook will pull listeners in and never let them go....

Secret Identities.

Extraordinary Powers.

She wants vengeance.

He wants justice.

The Renegades are a syndicate of prodigies - humans with extraordinary abilities - who emerged from the ruins of a crumbled society and established peace and order where chaos reigned. As champions of justice, they remain a symbol of hope and courage to everyone...except the villains they once overthrew.

Nova has a reason to hate the Renegades, and she is on a mission for vengeance. As she gets closer to her target, she meets Adrian, a Renegade boy who believes in justice - and in Nova. But Nova's allegiance is to a villain who has the power to end them both.

Renegades is the next hit YA audiobook listeners have been waiting for!

Only 1 question...

Does the narrator, the 3rd person narrator no less, have to sound so pissed the ENTIRE narrative?

I’m only a few chapters in, and completely distracted. The story seems great, but Rebecca Soler has me gritting my teeth the entire time because it’s like she’s spitting out every single word in absolute fury. It’s hard not to feel angry myself. Maybe that’s good? But gee, I kind of want to relax a bit. I feel for the character, but this is intense.

Can I handle a whole book of this? Stay tuned.

Great writing and great themes!

This is my first Melissa Meyer book and I had low expectations, but this novel was pretty good.

It had a ton of action, unique superpowers and a cute almost-romance thrown in there. I really enjoyed the plot and dual points of view. I also really enjoyed Nova’s journey, her emotional conflict at seeing and experiencing the lives of her enemies up close, her problem-solving skills and her true heroics in spite of officially being a villain. Throughout the book, I always had a guess for where the story was headed, or what upcoming twist might be thrown our way, but I was always wrong—which is a good thing! I love not being able to anticipate a character’s actions or guess the direction of the plot spot-on. It gives the book more excitement. The twist at the end was great too.

Adrian, Ruby, Oscar and Honey were all great characters too. I really enjoyed the altruism of Adrian and could identify a lot with his mindset sometimes. He’s a little cinnamon roll with some rebellious icing on top and I love it. I can’t wait to see more of his own emotional journey. I also LOVED that he had two dads. #Ally #AllyPride #Representation

This book also has some GREAT themes at work. What makes a villain and what makes a hero? (I enjoyed that there were heroes that really acted more like villains and vice versa) What is the danger of relying on others to save us rather than ourselves (the idea of learned helplessness)? How dangerous is freedom and how dangerous is strict order (where is the line;where is the balance)? And the biggest theme of identity.

I did want to see what the “ridiculous” Council laws were. I didn’t feel Meyer did the greatest job of defining the Council-ruled world. She was great at giving us a summary picture, but I wanted to see specifics that enraged me as much as they enraged Nova. Meyer needed to give me that evidence that the Council’s world was flawed before I could fully get on board with Nova and her mission and I don’t feel like I ever got that.

Also having two names for every single character was confusing and exhausting. I get it; it’s a superhero world and everyone has a superhero alias and a real name—and I love the deeper theme of “which identity is the REAL you?”—but with a full roster of characters already, it makes everything more difficult when you have two names to keep track of for each.

Despite these complaints, I’m looking forward to the next book!

I want more!

This is my first review on audible. This book was so exciting that I felt I needed to write one. If you've read the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer and enjoyed that series you will probably enjoy this as well. It is a very different world Meyer has created here compared to the one in the Lunar Chronicles. It's all about super powered humans and it is so well done. Though, I've read countless super hero comics in my time. This is the first novel I've delved into in the genre. I've got to say it is a good one. The narration was great as well. I can't wait for the next book! Highly recommended.

Like conclusions? This book isn't for you...

I want to start by saying I was hooked on this book from the first two pages. I listened to it in no time at all and brought up so many questions and great characters you want to get to know and learn. However every question thats asked in this story is regrettably absent by the end of the book where the author throws a lame plot twist then forces you to read the second book in order to find any closure. If you like a story thats a great standalone than this isnt for you. Oh, and your favorite character? You wont learn any back story about them at all. Amazing story potential, flawed execution. Also the two readers was kind of meh, the male reader was a bit cringe. 3/5 stars I would most certainly recommend it to my friends.

Listened x4! Love it!

I really love this story and series. Although the ending has me screeching in my head. I guess it's good that I own Archenemies AND Supernova and plan to listen to them next.

The performers do an excellent job performing this story. I'm sure I'll listen to this book again and again.

Amazing

I could not hit the stop button. I had to listen all the way through. I loved this story and it hooked me in quickly and had to find out what was coming next. I cannot wait to listen to the next book. The characters were great and I loved the humor in the book.

🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️

I usually start my reviews of 1⭐ with "I'm sorry" then list the reasons for why I didn't like the book. This time, I would like for this book to apologize to me.
An apology for the money I spent buying the hardback. An apology for the credit spent on the audiobook after I gave up reading it with my eyes. And finally an apology for the time I wasted on this unoriginal, predictable, childish, boring story.
I read 14 chapters last year and didn't like it but couldn't DNF it because I bought a fancy copy and felt guilty about not reading it, stupid guilt, stupid stupid logic.
