The Renegades are Coming

Posted on: 24th Feb 2017  /   Categorized: Renegades



Sooooooo excited to be announcing my new book!!!



From #1 New York Times-bestselling author Marissa Meyer, comes a high-stakes world of adventure, passion, danger, and betrayal.

Secret Identities.

Extraordinary Powers.

She wants vengeance. He wants justice.

The Renegades are a syndicate of prodigies—humans with extraordinary abilities—who emerged from the ruins of a crumbled society and established peace and order where chaos reigned. As champions of justice, they remain a symbol of hope and courage to everyone…except the villains they once overthrew.

Nova has a reason to hate the Renegades, and she is on a mission for vengeance. As she gets closer to her target, she meets Adrian, a Renegade boy who believes in justice—and in Nova. But Nova’s allegiance is to a villain who has the power to end them both.

(For those of you who have been following me for a long time and really pay attention to this stuff – YES, this is the first book of what was previously called the Gatlon Trilogy, but now it is a stand-alone. Long story. But I’M SO HAPPY AND EXCITED to finally be sharing stuff about it, yaaaayyyyy!!!)

    *Scream* OMG I can’t wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have been waiting so long for you to release this new book. Are you going to go on tour for it?

  2. Emma commented on:

    I’m really exited for this. But when is volume 2 coming out for Wires & Nerve?

    This looks great! Marissa, if you read this post, can you tell us if this has lots of romance in it? I’m not a fan of sappy teen romance books, and that’s why I like TLC! 🙂

  6. Marissa commented on:

    Thanks, guys!

    Emma, I know I mentioned Gatlon on Pinterest and my Nanowrimo page, and I think on this blog too, but that would have been years ago. This book has been a loooong time coming.

    Rhya, Vol. 2 should be out next January.

    Thegeek, it is a romance story, but there will be lots of action surrounding it. Think… X-Men meets Romeo and Juliet.

    Oh, wow…I have sci-fi fantasy novel with the main character’s name Nova and a post-apocalyptic/sci-fi novel with an android named Adrian. Anyways, can’t wait to read Renegades!

    Emma: The galton trilogy was mentioned in a couple of blog posts dating back to 2014. This one has the synopsis for it:

    If you read the synopsis for Galton and then the one for Renegades….the book has changed. A lot.

  10. Emma commented on:

    Rachel – Awesome! Thank you!!:)

  14. Alessandra commented on:

    Wow, I’m excited! Like, the past week and a half I have been recommending the Lunar Chronicles to a bunch of people (because oddly, they’ve all needed something new to read). So I Marissa Meyer on the brain and decided research her. Then I stumbled upon this lovely post and akdhga;bha;owejf;kej. I can’t wait for the new book to come out! Totally pumped. 🙂

    Looking forward to it, Marissa!

    Stars above! I am so so excited for this release. Is there to be a launch party? If so, when and where?

    Thank you,

    OH MY ACES, SPADES, AND STARS ABOVE! I am so excited for Renegades to come out!! Just reading the first 2 chapters has gotten me hooked and I don’t know how I’m going to survive til November.

    You are my favorite author and I have loved every book you’ve put out. The Lunar Chronicles characters are like real people to me now. I have literally adopted Aces, Spades, and Stars Above. I say it, and many combinations of those words, without even thinking now.

    I’m so pumped for this new world of Renegades.

  20. I can't see what's on this blank spot? commented on:

    Omg I’m woohoo excited for this

  21. Fernandez commented on:

    Hi big fan
    I was just wondering (because i would like to pre-order the book) what is the difference between the target & the B&N exclusive editions.

  22. Za'Niya commented on:

    wait, so is this when the third era was first established? because that would be awesome. i’m so excited.

  26. Cat commented on:

    This book is soooo good! I absoulately loved this book! I can’t wait for the second one!

  27. Rosie commented on:

    Hey Marrisa, I really hope you can respond to this, I’d just like to say that I just finished the book and I already can’t wait anymore for the second! Could you please tell me when the second book is coming out? Also, how many books will there be in this series?
    Thanks, Rosie

    Hi Mrs. Meyer,
    I finished reading Renegades a few days ago and I made my best friend read it too. We both love your book! It’s so cool how you make unique books by taking the cliché and putting a twist to it. Like, for example, how you have the romance everyone likes, but not the over the top romance that makes the reader uncomfortable. -Phoebe

  29. Melissa Otell commented on:

    Well first off oh my freaking gosh I literally can’t stay still after reading that, I finished the whole thing in a day and oh my lord I can’t believe it all ‘specially the ending oh my gosh how can you expect us to wait until November? I personally am already dreaming up thousands of things and by the way, just a thought, but how amazing would it be if there would renegade movies? I would honestly die because that’s my dream and then I was thinking even more and I was like oh my lord you could even have a tv show and I would probably come back to life after dying from the movie just to die again after a television show or whatever but okay…I got off track somewhere along the line there. But ok here goes, I love your books, I love your writing style, and you deserve nothing but awards for the rest of your life

    -Your dedicated fan

    P.S. you really are amazing! (^-^) <—- That's my happy face after reading your book!

    P.P.S. Thanks for reading this, it's all a bunch of jumbled together things but…ya thanks anyway
