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.

From Marissa Meyer, author of the #1 New York Times-bestselling Heartless, comes Renegades a high-stakes world of adventure, passion, danger, and betrayal.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In a vividly dark and fully imagined universe where special abilities are feared unless they can be strictly controlled and labeled, Meyer celebrates and subverts popular superhero tropes while mining the gray area between malevolence and virtue. Third-person narration builds suspense as it shifts between Nova and Adrian, a Renegade with his own secrets; the worldbuilding details and many combat sequences will captivate devotees of superhero comics. Beyond the capes and masks is a strikingly grounded story of star-crossed would-be lovers, deception, and the recognition that most of humanity exists between the extremes of good and evil * Publishers Weekly *
Tackles a familiar genre in a brand new way. * Hypable.com *
A fully realized new world with compelling characters and just enough edge-of-your-seat action to rival the biggest on-screen adaptation? * Bustle *
Even reluctant fans of hero fantasies will fall for the smart plot and wonderful world-building. Prepare to fangirl. * Justine Magazine *
Meyer delivers a balance between intricate world-building and fast-paced action sequences. Nova's childhood tragedy will draw sympathy from readers as they watch her integrate into the group of Renegades in order to seek vengeance. Back-stabbing, plot twists, and hidden agendas will have readers turning pages in an attempt to discover the truth. * School Library Journal *
Meyer smartly refrains from focusing totally on Adrian and Nova's potential romance and instead fleshes the characters out as separate individuals with flaws and strengths, regrets and desires. ...The world is exceptionally well crafted, particularly the complex backstory of the rise of prodigies among humans, and the secondary cast of villains and heroes could give Marvel and DC a run for their money. There's a lot going on here besides cool names and superpowers, and the book earns both its hefty page count and its expected sequel. * Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books *

“Intense”

Out of every book I've read by Marissa Meyer this is my favourite one. Fast-paced, extremely well written and intense. I loved Nova so much! She became one of my favourite characters, and she sort of reminded me... More

“Super start to new series ”

A little bit slow to start as it's setting the scene, hopefully it won't be to long until the next installment as things were getting really exciting.
This is an interesting look at superpowers and the... More
