Renegade Red!!!
Renegade Red: Book Two of The Light Trilogy - Lauren Bird Horowitz

First things first: I received this book through NetGalley.

 

I actually got this book over a year ago and I feel so bad, that I'm so far behind on this. I suck. I'm sorry.

 

This is the second book in the The Light trilogy, so I won't be posting a summary, cause I don't want to spoil anything. I'm also going to try to keep my review pretty spoiler free. I'm trying.

 

The beginning of the book took me a little bit, I read the first book two years ago and didn't have the time to reread it, so that partly why and also the beginning was just super confusing and threw me for a loop there, but all gets explained, everything made sense and made me love the beginning of the book even more. Feel confused about how my mind work? Welcome to my world.

 

One thing before I get more into the story a bit, I love LOVE the author's writing. It's seriously so damn beautiful and poetic and I just love it. Speaking of poetic. The thing that I truly loved about the first book were the poems, so when we got the first poem in this book, I was so happy and just grateful, that we were getting poems in this book, too.

 

So now about the story. As spoiler free as I can.

The world building was amazing. To be in this world, that we only heard about in the first book, to actually go there and experience things. I loved it. It wasn't as magical and peaceful as I thought it would be, it actually was pretty brutal.

 

We also got to meet new characters. Hilo. HILO. I'm so so so so torn. This hurts my soul to write down. I loved her, I hated her, I LOVED her and then I just got confused and frustrated and just WHY???? We got a lot of Noa teaming up with Hilo, being on their mission together, working their way through challenge after challenge. ALL THE GIRL POWER. And then everything towards the end had to happen. I'm mad.

While I'm being mad, LET'S TALK ABOUT MARENA. Cause I'm livid when it comes to her. That little sneak found her way into my heart right away. There was no escaping her. Then I thought we lost her, BUT WE DIDN'T. Just so we could actually lose her. I'm mad. She was the greatest, seriously. I loved her scenes with Noa. I just loved everything about this girl. Man, she deserved better.

 

But let's talk about Noa. One of my favorite main characters.

 

I love her so much. She is seriously one of the strongest characters I have ever read. She cries, she's in pain. She wants to give up. BUT SHE KEEPS MOVING FORWARDS. And she doesn't take crap from anyone. I seriously love how she focuses on the important things, two brothers fighting over her, who loves her more, who did what bad thing and who did it for the better reason and she's just, Shut the eff up and help me save my sister. YOU GO GIRL!!!!!!

The brothers. This book brought me firmly on Team Judah. But then things towards the end happened and things were being said and now I'm on Team Those faes better leave my girl alone. I still like Judah a lot more than Callum. I don't know. So many things were revealed in this book, that I don't know how to feel about just yet.

 

What I can tell you, is that I'm super super excited about the last book in this trilogy. Excited and super nervous. As soon as it comes out, I wanna read it. I'm not gonna wait a year after the release. I will and I can do it.

**BLOG TOUR + REVIEW** RENEGADE RED BY: LAUREN BIRD HOROWITZ
Renegade Red: Book Two of The Light Trilogy - Lauren Bird Horowitz

Introducing RENEGADE RED, Sequel to Award-Winning SHATTERED BLUE!

 

picsart_01-26-08-53-08

 

 

ONLY A RENEGADE WILL SURVIVE

 

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?

CAN LOVE SPAN WORLDS?

 

For Noa and Callum, being together is dangerous, even deadly. From the start, sixteen-year-old Noa senses that the mysterious transfer student to her Monterey boarding school is different. Callum unnerves and intrigues her, and even as she struggles through family tragedy, she’s irresistibly drawn to him. Soon they are bound by his deepest secret: Callum is Fae, banished from another world after a loss hauntingly similar to her own.

But in Noa’s world, Callum needs a special human energy, Light, to survive; his body steals it through touch—or a kiss. And Callum’s not the only Fae on the hunt. When Callum is taken, Noa must decide: Will she sacrifice everything to save him? Even if it means learning their love may not be what she thought?

My Review: 5 out of 5 stars! 
What a read! I am borderline speechless. I guess if I had to sum up my thoughts with just one word it would be WHOOOOAAAA!!!! 

 

I was blown away by the end of the first book, Shattered Blue, but Renegade Red was surprise after surprise. From page one to the very last, Horowitz kept me on toes. Everything about this book was MORE, more surprises, more action, more mystery, more answers... and more questions, and more gorgeous writing and moving poetry. Be prepared for ALL THE FEELS in this addition to The Light Trilogy! I am DYING to know what happens next! Can't wait to get my hands on that final book, etc n though I'm in no way prepared for this series to end. 

 

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Deviate by Tracy Clark
Deviate - Tracy Clark
Lots of crazy stuff going on in this one. The love triangle exists - and it isn't as bad as some of them are - I understand this one at least. We have good guys turning bad, and bad guys turning good, and I'm pissed because people die (no way am I going to tell you who). There was almost too much going on at times. Lots of new characters and I had a small problem keeping them all separate (partly because I was trying to see what happened next and flew through the book).
 
One of the great mysteries will be revealed and it's a bit of a doozy. I didn't quite see it coming, at least not all the way. I think the highlight of the story was all the secrets and mysteries that were revealed. There are a couple big ones that shocked the heck out of me that I didn't see coming at all.
