I have always loved Marissa Meyer. Her books have a particularly special place in my heart and though I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting her, that’s going to change soon and I could not be more excited! I’ve got tickets to meet her while she’s on her tour for the final book in this series! Of course, the first time I read Renegades, I was a little underwhelmed. I think, based on my previous opinion of her novels–primarily The Lunar Chronicles–I had simply believed I would feel exactly the same way about this new series as I had about the first.
And when I didn’t, I was admittedly a little heartbroken.
But while Renegades wasn’t the most amazing book I’ve ever come across and I didn’t fall in love with it immediately, after rereading it recently I’ve come to the realization that it’s not as disappointing as I had once initially thought. And the second novel more than made up for the aspects of it that I felt weary about; like the fact that Adrian very much reminded me of Kai at first.
Regardless, if you’re curious to learn more about my thoughts on this book, feel free to check out my review. If you’d simply like to check it out on Goodreads, you can do that, too. Happy reading, everyone!
