Horn Book Review

Meyer's new superhero story questions what makes someone with special powers (i.e., "prodigies") good or evil. Nova (a.k.a. Anarchist prodigy Nightmare) infiltrates the ranks of Gatlon City's ruling prodigies, the Renegades, to seek revenge for her murdered family. Her narration alternates with that of love interest Adrian, son of the Renegades' leaders. Complex world-building, compelling characters, and plenty of action should draw in sci-fi fans.
