A novel by Marissa Meyer
I must admit, I am a true Lunar Chronicles lover. When I began that series, I was doubtful, but fell in love with the book covers so much I had to read them. By the time I finished, I was so caught up- it became my favorite YA series. I could read and listen to them again and again. When I heard about Renegades, I was skeptical. I actually wanted to like the story, but not. That make any sense?
This is an audiobook review by MacMillan Audio; creatively narrated by Rebecca Solar and Dan Bittner,.Through their voices and Marissa Meyer's talent of telling a story, I found myself enjoying Renegades. The twists and turns pulled me in, the hook to tempting to resist.
The story is about Nova, a girl bent on revenge, or so it seems. After losing her family to a murderous gang, she joins her uncle in a band of Anarchists, bent against the system that now rules the world. They believe in freedom and rights and independence. But a group that fears freedom untamed is highly unpredictable and threatening wants to prevent that. The Renegades want to restore order, bring rules and control the calamity. But who's right? Who's trying to run the world? And who's going to pay for what happened to Nova's family all those years ago?
The story takes you thorugh the lives of super heroes. And with the life of a hero, there are lines that are constantly being raised, daring to be crossed. Nova is there, 100% of the time and she really hates it. You're led to believe that, anyway; I enjoyed the comic book vibe it gave, and I have a feeling I already know what's going to happen, so that makes me wonder if I want to read the next book or not.
Renegades is fun. It's adventurous and a pretty cool read, but it just didn't hit me the way LC did. But that's okay- every book isn't a humongous winner. She stepped into a genre that will need lots of information. And maybe some illustrations- graphic novel lovers love illustrations! I don't know. It was cool, but as far as reading the follow-up... it may not happen.
Check out Renegades by Marissa Meyer, while I move on to the next read!
