Renegades by Marissa Meyer

I love Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles, I was slightly disappointed in Heartless (which I chalked up to the fact that I don’t care for Alice in Wonderland), and now I’m not sure what to think about Renegades. There was a lot of world-building done, a lot of background information, a decent amount of action and even some warm fuzzies, but I hate it when a 500+ page book serves as a set up for the series. Nothing feels resolved. Even the big fight at the end of this book kind of felt like it came out of nowhere—there was hardly any buildup to it, and the stakes were negligible until the very end.

That said, the I like that this series explores the line between heroes and villains and that there’s a tonne of grey space for the two main characters to play in, so I’ll likely read Archenemies and Supernova. I love a series and I know how well Meyer can pull one off
