All’s fair in love and anarchy…
Supernova, the epic conclusion to New York Times bestselling author Marissa Meyer’s thrilling Renegades Trilogy finds Nova and Adrian struggling to keep their secret identities concealed while the battle rages on between their alter egos, their allies, and their greatest fears come to life. Secrets, lies, and betrayals are revealed as anarchy once again threatens to reclaim Gatlon City.
I really liked Supernova! It’s a really good end to the series, and the ending made me want another book.
I was wondering how everything would end, and we definitely get that in this book. Unfortunately, we lose a few characters along the way, and a couple were really sad.
Things get a little more grey in this book, and we see that things are not as black and white as they were in Renegades and Archenemies. I feel like Nova really struggles with being an Anarchist or a Renegade throughout the series, but we really see it in this book. Once Ace becomes the Anarchist we’ve heard about for two books, and is hellbent on destruction, Nova really starts to see that he is different than she thought he was. He was a pretty terrible person, in my opinion. Especially once we find out what really happens the night her family was killed.
It made me really sad for Nova, and while I completely get that she wanted to be on Ace’s side, I also get why she wanted to be on the Renegades side too. People aren’t just good or bad, a superhero or a villain. Nova has a hard decision to make, but in the end, she realizes being an Anarchist isn’t what she wants.
At least, not how Ace wants the Anarchists to be. I can’t imagine having to choose between her only remaining family and her friends.
The ending was mind-blowing. I would absolutely love another series from that character’s perspective- I wouldn’t mind seeing that character grow up, or even this series re-told from that character’s perspective. I wasn’t expecting it, but looking back, it makes a lot of sense. I don’t know if Meyer will ever return to this world, but if she does, she has a great starting point with how this book ended.
Rebecca Soler and Dan Bittner did a great job narrating. I’ve really enjoyed their narration, and they are great choices for Adrian and Nova. I can’t imagine the series being narrated by anyone else.
4 stars. I didn’t love Supernova, but I still really enjoyed it. This series has been really fun to listen to.
