In the first installment in the Renegade series, Rebecca Yarros delivered a tale overflowing with heart-stopping action, butterfly-inducing romance, and swoon-eliciting steam. In Nova, she picks right back up where she left off with Wilder, continuing the adventures of her crew of daredevils with Landon’s story. In this second chance romance, we get to tag along with Landon as he sets out on his mission to not only perfect an epic snowboarding stunt, but also win back the heart of the girl he destroyed several years back. Neither one will be an easy feat; but, in typical Yarros hero fashion, Landon has locked his sights on exactly what he wants and will stop at nothing to achieve the end game.
I think Landon and Rachel may be my most favorite couple out of all of Rebecca’s pairings to date. The push-pull tension between them as they sifted through the wreckage of their previous relationship, attempting to salvage parts that could be built into something new, contained just the right ratio of angsty distance to abandoned surrender. Landon is my kind of hero, every bit as full of honor as any of the guys from the Flight and Glory series, but with a little added tarnish and kinks in his armor. And for as much as we always gush over Rebecca’s male leads, I think she deserves just as much, if not more, credit for the incredible females that she writes. Her women are strong, independent, and fearless and Rachel fully embodies each of these qualities. The ease with which I could relate to these two characters made my investment in their journey so immersive that at times it felt palpable. Moments like that are what make reading an absolutely magical experience.
Nova is just one more example of why Rebecca will always be an automatic one-click author for me. She consistently produces emotionally satisfying stories that entertain with a perfect balance of humor, heart and wisdom. I always look forward to surrounding myself with her words and have no doubt that whatever she has planned for Penna in Rebel will be soul-searching, bold, and unapologetically romantic.
