Review

I used to love this book a lot, but I have decided that it is just not Christian-friendly… This book has a few problems in it. Not like really bad problems, it’s just not as youth-appropriate as I wish. The book got a little more violent than the first one, with a few… descriptive deaths. Like a villain got tortured (violently) to death.

And there were also LGBT characters. If you read the review I made of the first book, I mentioned that one of the main characters had two dads. And I will say again, I am not against any LGBT people, but I don’t want to read about it in kid’s books.

Over all, I wish the book was better, but it’s not. So, I’m not really comfortable reading this series anymore and I will not be reading the third one…

 

Pros

  • Superheros!!!!!!
  • Adventure and great fight scenes

Cons

  • LGBT characters
  • A lot of violence

Nova’s double life is about to get a lot more complicated:

As Insomnia, she is a full-fledged member of the Renegades, a syndicate of powerful and beloved superheroes. She works with Adrian’s patrol unit to protect the weak and maintain order in Gatlon City.

As Nightmare, she is an Anarchist – a group of of villains who are determined to destroy the Renegades. Nova wants vengeance against the so-called heroes who once failed her when she needed them most.

But as Nova, her feelings for Adrian are deepening, despite the fact that he is the son of her sworn enemies and, unbeknownst to Nova, he has some dangerous secrets of his own.

In this second installment of the Renegades trilogy, Nova, Adrian, and the rest of their crew – Ruby, Oscar, and Danna — are faced with escalating crime in Gatlon City, while covert weapons and conflicting missions have Nova and Adrian questioning not only their beliefs about justice, but also the feelings they have for each other.

The line between good and evil has been blurred, but what’s clear to them both is that too much power could mean the end of their city – and the world – as they know it.
