Secret Identities.
Extraordinary Powers.
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.

Renegades was a fun tale: a kind of superhero Romeo and Juliet in the making. Both Nova and Adrian are great characters you can get behind as a reader, and I enjoyed the storyline with it's elements of revenge and infiltration. Yes, it's a tad predictable at times, but most superhero stories are, since they follow standard tropes. On the whole, though, I found Renegades entertaining and easy reading, and I do plan to continue on to read Archenemies soon. A fun YA fantasy series for superhero fans.
