“Heroism wasn’t about what you could do, it was about what you did. It was about who you saved when they needed saving.”
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.
“It became the strong against the weak, and, as it turns out, the strong were usually jerks.”
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.
Okay so to kick off the first of four Superhero themed books this month, I’m starting with Renegades, where the Marissa Meyer has made up the entire cast of super Heroes. This first of all deserves an applaud..
Next, which deserves a better clap than the brilliant Joker, Meyer provides a cast of Characters, which includes their alias and of course what Powers they also have.
The story begins in the past, when a 6 year old girl, Nova, witnesses her families murder, but blames the wrong people. IMHO.
She then becomes a villain, much like the Joker. Her mission is to kill all the Superheros and everything they stand for. She has to become a double agent, the problem is the lines get blurred really quick and Nova has no way of deciphering who are the enemies anymore.
This is one of the many reasons I read YA books, because there is so much well written questions weaved into the novel. It takes the concept of Good vs Evil, superhero and villains and questions whether either truly exist.
So to finish, I am going to post a picture of Chris Hemsworth…. Because.. oh heck who needs a reason..
