All’s fair in love and anarchy…
The epic conclusion to Marissa Meyer’s thrilling Renegades Trilogy finds Nova and Adrian fighting to keep their identities secret. While the battle rages on between their alter egos and their allies, there is a darker threat shrouding Gatlon City.
The Renegades’ worst enemy is back among them, threatening to reclaim Gatlon City. Nova and Adrian must brave lies and betrayal to protect those they love. Their greatest fears are about to come to life, and unless they can bridge the divide between heroes and villains, they stand to lose everything. Including each other.
Intrigue and action will leave readers on edge until the final, shocking secrets are revealed.
This was an explosive finale full of twists, turns, deception, betrayal, and redemption. The events in this book were shocking and impossible to predict.
However, at times it was too much. SO MUCH HAPPENED in this book, it was hard to keep up. While the final battle kept me on the edge of my seat, it felt a little too long. There was so much back and forth, I wish things had wrapped up more quickly.
I am conflicted about the ending. The final battle was so dragged out, but so much happened right at the end it gave me whiplash. I was very satisfied with Nova and Adrian’s journeys and where their relationship ended up. But then the epilogue included a major reveal that needs to be explored, expect this is the last book in the trilogy. As far as I know there are no plans for a spinoff, so I don’t understand the purpose of the epilogue.
Despite the confusing ending (I understood what was happening, but I didn’t understand why Marissa Meyer made all of those choices), I overall enjoyed this book and I recommend this series!
