Archenemies
Archenemies | Marissa Meyer
Part thriller, part superhero fantasy, here is the fiercely awaited sequel to the New York Times-bestselling Renegades by Marissa Meyer, author of the Lunar Chronicles. Are Nova and Adrian each others worst nightmare? In Renegades, Nova and Adrian (aka Insomnia and Sketch) fought the battle of their lives against the Anarchist known as the Detonator. It was a short-lived victory. The Anarchists still have a secret weapon, one that Nova believes will protect her. The Renegades also have a strategy for overpowering the Anarchists, but both Nova and Adrian understand that it could mean the end of Gatlon City and the world as they know it.

4.5/5💚s

You know it‘s a good book when you contemplate not eating to try to finish is or yell obscenities when you do finish it cause it ended on a huge cliffhanger & you have plans. 😜 In true YA fashion the sexual tension/attraction is thick, but it‘s further compounded by secret identities, opposing loyalties, superpowers, and different views of the world and right and wrong.

I can‘t wait to start book 3!

Me: I don‘t know what book to read next. I don‘t know if I want to read the next book of this series or another book in a different series that will be here on Friday.

My 9yo: well, today is Monday.

Me: fair point!

(Book 2 in the renegades trilogy it is!)

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I was pleased that “Archenemies” didn‘t disappoint compared to the first book of the series, and was just as action-packed. I thought that the ending of “Renegades” was a cliffhanger, but Meyer managed a cliffhanger that tripled the suspense at the end of this novel. Thank goodness that the final book of the trilogy, “Supernova”, is already released so I can start it right away.

QuoteQueen The cliffhanger at the end of this book was intense! So thankful I also have book 3 waiting to be read! 6d

Author: Marissa Meyer

Genre: Science & Adventure Fiction

Date started/finished: Novermber 12 - 25

Reason I chose the book: I read the first book “Renegades” and wanted to continue reading the series because of it‘s messages about human rights in a fantasy novel.

Summary: In the comments

__mz.3 Summary: It‘s about Nova, Adrian and their Renegades team, they‘re superheroes. They defend the part of the city that‘s filled with crime. Things get worse when there is a division between the rights of the people with unique abilities, superheroes and villains. Those villains want to destroy them. There is no line between good and evil, their friendships and powers are at risk and tested. 1mo

Marissa Meyer's Archenemies, the second book in Marissa Meyer's Renegades trilogy, is right in my wheelhouse with its focus on retelling the typical superhero tale. (Spoilers ahead if you haven't read book 1!) Protagonists Nova and Adrian continue working at cross purposes while developing their deepening friendship. Each seeks vengeance for the death of a parent; each blames the other's alter ego, not understanding the conflict at the center. ⬇️

UnabridgedPod While I'll definitely read book 3 (Supernova), this book falls a little flat for me. It lacks the genuine drama of the recent amazon series The Boys, and it doesn't quite live up to the depth and nuance of Meyer's Lunar Chronicles series. Somehow, the development of the secondary characters here falls flat, which means Nova and Adrian carry a great deal of pressure to make the series dynamic and engaging. ⬇️ 1mo
UnabridgedPod Overall, this is a solid read for me.⠀

Which authors' second series/novels live up to the promise of their first? What superhero sagas would you recommend?

Just started out on this one a couple days ago, I‘m already in love. Marissa Meyer is a fantastic writer, I am so glad I finally picked up this series (but finding this book was so difficult so close to Christmas 😩). Haven‘t had a chance to take a proper photo of the book itself, but this screenshot of it when I finished Renegades really shows my excitement to continue the series! #lunarchronicles #renegades #marissameyer

Scenes from my #audiowalk. It was nice & sunny & not too cold. I also saw a deer who started to run off, but paused & we stared at each other for a bit. It was a lovely walk.

Finished just in time for Supernova‘s release on November 5th. As soon as I finished I immediately preordered my copy and now it‘s just a matter of waiting. There was no shortage of action, which is to be expected from a superhero book written by Marissa Meyer, and there were so many sweet moments that really made my heart swell. As per usual, Marissa Meyer hit this one right out of the park.

The romance in the book was a little forced but I guess that‘s just the price Nova has to pay. I did not like the ending. There was no surprise or plot twist. Well there was just not the complete end.

#Libby. I'm just not liking this series as much as The Lunar Chronicles, but I'm interested enough in the author to read book two. It's so-so so far.

Johanna414 I‘m reading Renegades right now and feeling the same way 7mo
annahenke @Johanna414 it's a shame! 7mo
ShelfAddiction I agree. I loved the Lunar Chronicles so much, unfortunately this series isn't resonating with me. I finished Renegades last year, and have bothered picking up Arch Enemies. 7mo

While I was in class I just finished Archenemies by Marissa Meyer and I must admit when I finished it I was like where's the rest of the book? The ending was defiantly a cliffhanger, I NEED THE NEXT BOOK RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!! Nothing isn't even explained yet I have to wait six months for SuperNova and I don't think I'm going to survive. Adrian doesn't even know that Nova is nightmare and when he finds out well Idk, Overall I highly enjoyed it!

This story did not have to be dragged out into a trilogy. I was down with two, three is a too far of a stretch. Nothing happened until the last 50 pages. Read fast, but honestly not sure I‘ll bother remembering to get to the last one when it comes out in September.

This one was slower for me than the first in this series, Renegades. I think Meyer used this one to set the reader up for the last book in this trilogy, which I understand, I just miss the action from the first one. I do love the superhero world created in these books and the moral delimnas of the characters as they struggle to determine are they the good guys or the bad guys?

This marked another off my #ReadingUSA2019 @Librarybelle

I thought the first book, Renegades, was okay. Nothing special but not terrible and I was kinda hoping this one would pick me up and blow me away. Not going to lie I'm a little disappointed. Nova's struggle between good and loyalty to her villain fam should be intriguing but somehow falls flat and repetitive and the secondary characters are not developed enough for me to care about them. It feels rushed but nothing happens until the very end. Oof.
