I thoroughly enjoyed reading Archenemies! It was fast-paced, action driven, and full of exciting characters.
The concept behind Renegades is so neat! I love the heroes versus villains construct, and the way the characters navigate the gray areas as they explore what's good and bad. Each character, whether villain or renegade, has a set of unique abilities. The main characters Nova and Adrian are known as Insomnia and Sketch. Insomnia can put people to sleep, and Sketch can bring just about any drawing to life. While there are a ton of cool abilities, I think Sketch's abilities are the best (and most useful!)
Archenemies picks up where Renegades left off. Nova is knee-deep in renegades territory. The longer she's with them, the more the lines blur between friend and enemy. While Nova is technically a villain, she's not all bad. Just as Adrian is not the saint the renegades would paint him to be. I appreciate Nova and Adrian as morally gray characters in a world that tries to divide everything as black and white.
I had no idea how Archenemies was going to end, but the ending blew me away! Just when I thought truths were going to be uncovered, the mask is put back on. The third book is going to be downright sticky. So many webs have been woven, so I can only imagine how it's all going to blow up in the end.
A lot happens in Archenemies! Things explode, people get hurt, and tension mounts as the lies start to build. I'm so excited for the third and final book in this awesome trilogy!
If you haven't picked up Renegades yet, I highly recommend it! Marissa Meyer did a fantastic job building a pretty incredible world.
I don't want to give anything away. The story is well thought out, and skims along at the perfect pace. The editing was done well. The characters continue to grow and the world-building is enthralling. Nothing here disappoints.
Be prepared for even more action. Uncover more backstory secrets. Relish in the deepening of sweet relationships. Struggle with whether you are a Renegade or an Anarchist all over again.
Adrian is also under pressure, trying to bury his secret identity as the Sentinel for good, and grasping with the ramifications of a new weapon distributed by his own fathers. And even though no one believes him, he still has a feeling the Anarchist Nightmare is still alive.
Caught in a web of lies and danger, Adrian and Nova have to decide where they stand...
While I enjoyed the second book, I wasn't thrilled with it like the first. Even the title- Arch-Enemies - sounds like second book stuffing, and apart from a few emotional moments the story, thos book reads off as a way to get to book 3.
I will say that, as a positive, Nova and Adrian are great together, and I really hope things still work out for them. Just in a better book!
