Book Review: Supernova by Marissa Meyer

I've said this many times before, but I have been a fan of Marissa Meyer for a long time. I stumbled upon her first series the Lunar Chronicles when her first book Cinder was published, and I've been a fan ever since. When she first announced her next project was a superhero series, I was a little skeptical only because I was so used to reading her work from a fantasy/fairy tale point of view. However, after reading Supernova and finishing the Renegades trilogy, I can say she has done it again.

Supernova is the thrilling conclusion to Marissa Meyer's Renegades trilogy. We see our two main characters Nova and Adrian pitted against each other in a fight of good against evil, Anarchist against Renegade. As with the previous two books, their secrets are still intact, but for how long? Can Nova stay loyal to Ace and his quest to destroy the Renegades or will her feelings for Adrian force her to switch sides?

I don't even know where to begin to review it because so much is packed into one book and I don't want to give to much away. The beginning of the story picks up right where Archenemies left off with Nova finding herself ever closer to Adrian finding out her secret. Max is still in the hospital and the Renegades are trying to clean up from the mess left behind in headquarters from Genissa and Nova's battle. Throughout the series, Nova has been one of my favorite characters and I really felt her struggle in the book to either be the villain she was brought up to be or the hero her heart is clearly telling her to be. Her strength is tested over and over again, and yet she still gets up and does what she thinks is best.

I loved how Supernova also showed us more of the bond Adrian and Max share as brothers. As the story went on, I fell more in love with the characters, good or bad, and crossed my fingers that all would turn out the way it should. My very favorite part of the entire book comes near the end and it involves Nova, Adrian, and Max. You'll have to read it to see what I mean.

This book is full of action and takes the reader on an up and down roller coaster of emotions. Some are good, some are sad, some might be a little confusing...but I promise you it will be worth it!
