Renegades by Marissa Meyers

About: 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. (taken from catalog)

Andrea’s Thoughts: As a fan of Marissa Meyer and her popular Lunar Chronicles series, I jumped at the chance to read this book.  Renegades takes place after the Age of Anarchy, a time in which prodigies (those with super powers) destroyed the existing government, leaving society to be ruled by prodigy gangs of villains.  The Renegades began as a group of prodigies who used their powers to help humans and ultimately take down the villains and restore order.  Now the villains just want to live in peace and freedom without the constant interference and suspicion of the Renegades.  Nova is on a mission to make this happen.  Along the way she meets Adrian, who makes her question her motivations for revenge and whether the world needs prodigies at all, good or bad.  I think Meyer did such a great job in developing the characters and the story for this book, and it just plain fun to read.  I enjoyed reading about the Renegades, the villains, and their society and I can’t wait to find out what happens next in the sequel.
