Archenemies left the saga of the Renegades on a pretty big cliffhanger: Nova stole a precious artifact from the Renegades and was waiting for her cover to be blown. That ending was a pretty massive set up and demanded that Supernova end the series with a real bang. Luckily, Marissa Meyer delivered and then some – Supernova is a phenomenal ending to a great series. It packs the breakneck action, emotional moments, and the answers to all the loose ends that fans of the series hoped for.
All’s fair in love and anarchy…
The epic conclusion to Marissa Meyer’s thrilling Renegades Trilogy finds Nova and Adrian fighting to keep their identities secret. While the battle rages on between their alter egos and their allies, there is a darker threat shrouding Gatlon City.
The Renegades’ worst enemy is back among them, threatening to reclaim Gatlon City. Nova and Adrian must brave lies and betrayal to protect those they love. Their greatest fears are about to come to life, and unless they can bridge the divide between heroes and villains, they stand to lose everything. Including each other.
Intrigue and action will leave readers on edge until the final, shocking secrets are revealed.
Superheroes, double agents, killer actions scenes, and romance – what more could you possibly want from a book? After the satisfying ending from from Renegades, I wasn’t sure how this book could possibly measure up. Luckily it did – with pulse-pounding action scenes, surprisingly tender moments, and an altogether more cohesive storytelling experience, Archenemies did something rare for a sequel: it was even better than the first book.
Time is running out.
Together, they can save the world.
But they each other’s worst nightmare.
In Renegades, Nova and Adrian (aka Insomnia and Sketch) fought the battle of their lives against the Anarchist known as the Detonator. It was a short-lived victory.
The Anarchists still have a secret weapon, one that Nova believes will protect her. The Renegades also have a strategy for overpowering the Anarchists, but both Nova and Adrian understand that it could mean the end of Gatlon City – and the world – as they know it.
I’m a long time fan of Marissa Meyer’s – back when I originally started reviewing books her first book, Cinder, was one of the hottest books of the year (I even have an old advanced readers copy of the sequel, Scarlet, kicking around somewhere). I found the Cinder series to be a fresh take on fairy tale retellings with good pacing and well built characters. Renegades held a lot of appeal to me – I’m a sucker for anything to do with superheros. While this book didn’t quite live up to my expectations, it was still a fun read that sets up the trilogy well.
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.
