Reckless, desperate, and distraught, Noa Sullivan leaps into a collapsing Portal in the explosive finale of Shattered Blue –the jaw-dropping, award-winning first installment in The Light Trilogy –in wild hope of rescuing her little sister Sasha. Now Noa and the Fae brothers who love her–Callum and Judah Forsythe–must find a way to survive not only across worlds but between them, in places so treacherous and deceptive their own minds are twisted against them. As the three fight to survive their passage, they battle not only enemies but themselves, and their darkest, most difficult secrets.
Surviving, however, is only the beginning: Noa needs to find Sasha. That means becoming a warrior herself, one just as fierce as the magical brothers battling for her love. Across broken cities, underground labyrinths, rushing floods and endless skies; in the face of legions of armies, horrifying tyrants, and the most deceitful of friends, can Mortal Noa rescue her sister–and understand her own heart–in time to escape the most deadly of magic realms?
I anxiously awaited Renegade Red, the second book in the Light Trilogy and it did not disappoint. This book is very different from Shattered Blue. When I started the novel, I was a bit taken aback because it was unlike anything I was expecting, and I loved it!
The characters are strong and intense. Noa has to deal with murder, torture, betrayal and the unknown. Her inner strength coming through as a result of her poetry and love for her sister. Callum and Judah continue to fight with each other physically, emotionally and mentally. Both have deceived Noa. I struggled throughout the book with who to trust and am still undecided about where to place my loyalties.
The plotline is much darker. The story starts in Harlow, the in between world, where everything is discombobulated. Order is maintained through fear and mind control. All creativity is banned and all activities are monitored. The characters are the same, but in this world, Noa is dating Judah. The book quickly transitions to Aurora, Judah and Callum’s home, where the action is truly nonstop, new characters are introduced and the plot becomes darker and more evil.
The writing once again is gorgeous and powerful. An amazing world is built through vivid descriptions and detail. The words pull the reader into the novel lending to the emotional rollercoaster effect. My mind was reeling when I finished this book, another shocking ending! I truly loved this book and cannot wait for the final book in this trilogy.
