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.

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.

Liked it a lot, but...

It's really new and different for Marissa Meyer. I did feel that the writing was more juvenile than her previous books, but still entertaining.

A new take on the superhero genre

I thought it was great! Makes you think twice about villains and turns the superhero genre on it's head.

interesting, but disappointingly slow and thin

Fans of Meyer's Lunar Chronicles will gobble this up. The setup is unique and intriguing. Meyer's world almost convincingly treads a line between believable sci-fi and comic book sha-zam. In this world, many people have super powers, and as expected, some use them for selfish gain while others use them to benefit others. There have been 3 basic categories of super-powered people--Villain gangs, Anarchists, and Renegades. The Anarchists have been defeated by the Renegades who now are the pop stars of the society. They do the work of the police, ambulance, fire and all other service organizations. There are enough of these Renegades that the rest of the populace depends on the heroes to save them in every situation, which they usually do. However, when a Villain gang comes and kills 6-year-old Nova's family, the Renegades fail to save the day. This is the Big Event. This is Nova's Origin Story. Now her life's sole aim is to destroy the Renegades.

Nova has a few super powers of her own. We meet some others with various powers. Nova attempts to kill the Renegade Head Honcho. All this in 12 yawning chapters. None of the characters are fleshed out. There's none of the instant plunge into a fully-developed world. It takes until somewhere around chapter 12 or 13 for things to begin to get interesting. And it never quite makes it to credible super-hero world; you keep having to remind yourself of the basic premise of the book. And then it ends on a cliff-hanger, not a real ending.

Nevertheless, Nova does raise some interesting concepts: 1) is it psychologically healthy for the populace to depend on others to come save them? and 2) is it always so comic-book easy to distinguish the good guys from the bad guys? This introspection saves Nova and the book from being utterly insipid.

Meyer still struggles with her English, which she uses very well until her thesaurus fails her and she tosses in a completely wrong word. For example, Nova talks about wanting a world where people could be free, where people would not be HERALDED OVER by villain gangs. There are at least three of these in the book, but not so many as there were in the Lunar Chronicles. A really good English-speaking editor would have caught these.

Rebecca Soler does a great job giving voice to the characters. Dan Bittner is there just in case you can't tell which chapters are told from the boy's perspective.

As my 2017 most-awaited book, this one is a big disappointment. Despite that, with the Lunar Chronicles Meyer has proven that she can create a world and a plot and characters, so I will still read the next book, hoping she will step up her game.

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.

Loved it!!

I was drawn into the world and story the whole time. Marissa's writing is what I want to emulate, perfect amount of description, prose, and dialogue, all with an awesome plot and characters. Glad there will be more books to come because I don't want this story to end!

An Awesome Adventure!

This was an amazing read! The best part was definitely the narration! They were both REALLY great! I was weary to read this, because I have tried to read Cinder many times, but can’t finish it. Yet, I had no problem with this book. The characters were so sweet, funny, and relatable. Meyer turned superhero’s on their heads! I can’t wait for the next book!
