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 villains who are determined to destroy the Renegades. Nova wants vengeance against the so-called heroes who once failed her when she needed them the 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.
I’ve tried to start Archenemies a few times and just couldn’t get into it for some reason. But this time I finally stuck through, I’m glad I did because after not too long I was really invested in the story.
There are so many different secrets being kept in this book. Adrian’s secret, Nova’s many secrets. I liked this aspect but it was frustrating at times because I just want the truth to come out.
Nova’s struggle was an interesting one. She’s working for the Renegades and getting to know them as people instead of the anonymous face of the organization that didn’t save her parents. But she’s still loyal to her makeshift family, the Anarchists. This internal battle is one that I really cannot wait to see the outcome of.
Adrian is torn between his secret identity and doing what he knows will make his dads proud. He’s also very interested in Nova.
I liked the relationship between these two and I’m anxious to find out how things will turn out when their secrets are revealed.
Overall, I did enjoy this one. I’m excited to finish the series with the final book and see how everything is going to come together.
Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
