Gr 8 Up—From the author of "The Lunar Chronicles" comes a story of superheroes and supervillians. After the chaos of the Age of Anarchy, when some humans discovered their superhuman abilities and used them to wreak havoc on the world, a group of superheroes came to power. Calling themselves the Renegades, these heroes have established order in a disorderly world. However, some resist the rule of the Renegades, among them Nova, a teen with powers of her own who resents that the Renegades were unable to save her family. Bent on revenge, Nova plans to join the Renegades and destroy them from within. Meyer delivers a balance between intricate world-building and fast-paced action sequences. Nova's childhood tragedy will draw sympathy from readers as they watch her integrate into the group of Renegades in order to seek vengeance. Back-stabbing, plot twists, and hidden agendas will have readers turning pages in an attempt to discover the truth. Give to fans of Brandon Sanderson's "Reckoners" series.
VERDICT A first purchase for most libraries.
