My take away from this story was: you can't judge a book by its cover. The "bad" guys are fighting for some "good" reasons. And the "good" guys aren't "good" all the time either. This novel explores how and why we come to believe the things we believe - ... Read More »

There is no need for this book to be this long. This story could have been told in 250, 300 pages, easily. There is so much fluff, you could stuff several Captain Chromium dolls with it, and still have enough left over to make a pillow that Nova won't use. Seriously, she might not sleep, but this...

Nova and Adrian were fun to get to know. The challenges they faced: to be seen as valued members of their teams and to make a bigger difference in the world were encouraging.

"To be weak," Phobia rasped. "To be helpless."
Ingrid cast him a sideways look. "Excuse me?"

SummaryAdd a Summary
Prodigies are people with powers, each one unique. Most are heroes, some are viewed differently. Nova is part of the anarchists; her parents died because the renegades didn't help; she wants to end the renegades and to do so she begins infiltrating them, but nothing is as simple as it seems.
From #1 New York Times-bestselling author Marissa Meyer, comes a high-stakes world of adventure, passion, danger, and betrayal.
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.
