This is the second book in the Silver Blackthorn trilogy.

It begins immediately after the first book, with only a little recapping, which was nice because I started this one immediately after finishing the first one, and it would have driven me nuts if there was a lot of recapping.

This book is more about the friendship and the relationship between all the teenagers, their families, and the other people in this world.

It's pretty similar to most other dystopia trilogies; in this one, not much happens. It's more character and world building, and setting the scene for the final book.

There's a love triangle that's pretty unnecessary, especially since Silver is just dishonest with both guys which is really out of character. It almost feels like the love triangle is there because there's always a love triangle in these books. ( )

If you haven’t read my review on Reckoning, Renegade’s first book, then let me repeat this: if Divergent and The Hunger Game have a kid, that would be this trilogy. However, Renegade got an extra point compare to Reckoning, because the writing was improved a lot!

I’m so glad I got my hand on Renegade. The book continued where it’s left us in Reckoning, when Silver and other Offerings escaped from the castle. After their plan to show the people the King’s true nature failed, the group of survival Offerings have to find another way to overthrow King Victor. Silver and her friends continued the adventure that they left off in Reckoning, with more gripping action scenes and loving friendships. They experienced things that a group of sixteen-year-olds shouldn’t have seen. Their courage was testing again and again every nights and days, but they never cease to give up. Their bravery impressed me deeply.

This book is a big improvement compare to Reckoning. It’s awesome! While still being a little unoriginal, the writing is way better now. What I love most about Renegade is Silver’s friends and companions. Their friendships are so heart-warming and adoring. People died in this book, yes, but while I’m being very sad, it makes the book very memorable. And the triangle-love! Did I say I have a very strong love/hate relationship with triangle-love? Half of the time reading this book, I was silently screaming in my head, telling Silver to just choose one and get over with it. I mean, it’s not a very big of a deal in the book, but my fangirl heart just couldn’t stay calm.

Overall, it’s a good book. I had fun reading this. However, I still can’t bring myself to give Renegade the love that it deserves because of the very predictable plot. But then, I can’t wait for the third book and recommend you should check it out and give it a try.

RENEGADE kicks off at the same point book one, RECKONING, ended. Silver and her friends fled Windsor Castle and are now searching for the rebels. Little does she know, they know who she is and they want her to spearhead their campaign.

Everyone now knows who Silver is and they all have their expectations of what she should do, but she just wants to keep her friends and family safe which is a difficult job all in its own. There is a lot of character development on Silver's part in RECKONING. I enjoyed learning more about the rebels and watching Silver navigate the danger with her friends by her side.

RENEGADE continues the love triangle between Silver, Imrin and Opie. There really isn't any romance going on between ANYONE and Silver never takes the chance to talk to either of them about the other and what she is feeling. Granted they are on the run and fighting for their lives most of the time, but it would have been nice to see some development on that subject.

RENEGADE wasn't as fast paced as book one, but I still had no problem flying through it. I enjoy Wilkinson's writing style and the world that has developed over the last two books. There is a good amount of action and danger with Silver and her friends on the run. We learn a bit more about the past and the way the King came to be. There are some neat surprises thrown in that I wasn't expecting as well as some technology I never thought would be introduced. I wish RESURGENCE was coming out sooner because I am really excited to see how the trilogy ends.
