About the Author

Marissa Meyer is the New York Times-bestselling author of The Lunar Chronicles. She lives in Tacoma, Washington, with her husband and three demanding cats. She's a fan of most things geeky (Sailor Moon, Firefly, any occasion that requires a costume), and has been in love with fairy tales since she was a child.

Reviews

In a vividly dark and fully imagined universe where special abilities are feared unless they can be strictly controlled and labeled, Meyer celebrates and subverts popular superhero tropes while mining the gray area between malevolence and virtue. Third-person narration builds suspense as it shifts between Nova and Adrian, a Renegade with his own secrets; the worldbuilding details and many combat sequences will captivate devotees of superhero comics. Beyond the capes and masks is a strikingly grounded story of star-crossed would-be lovers, deception, and the recognition that most of humanity exists between the extremes of good and evil * Publishers Weekly *
Tackles a familiar genre in a brand new way. * Hypable.com *
A fully realized new world with compelling characters and just enough edge-of-your-seat action to rival the biggest on-screen adaptation? * Bustle *
Even reluctant fans of hero fantasies will fall for the smart plot and wonderful world-building. Prepare to fangirl. * Justine Magazine *
Meyer delivers a balance between intricate world-building and fast-paced action sequences. Nova's childhood tragedy will draw sympathy from readers as they watch her integrate into the group of Renegades in order to seek vengeance. Back-stabbing, plot twists, and hidden agendas will have readers turning pages in an attempt to discover the truth. * School Library Journal *
Meyer smartly refrains from focusing totally on Adrian and Nova's potential romance and instead fleshes the characters out as separate individuals with flaws and strengths, regrets and desires. ...The world is exceptionally well crafted, particularly the complex backstory of the rise of prodigies among humans, and the secondary cast of villains and heroes could give Marvel and DC a run for their money. There's a lot going on here besides cool names and superpowers, and the book earns both its hefty page count and its expected sequel. * Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books *
