Gr 9 Up—Kenna lives in a world of dichotomies—people are either labeled "Heroes," like her own mother and BFF, or "Villains," like the man who killed her father. However, Kenna is an odd girl out, as she is neither—she is just plain old boring normal. In the first entry, Kenna, attempting an experiment to change her lot in life, is saved from a dangerous break-in at her lab by a Villain, which causes her to realize that the world might not be so clearly defined as she thought it once was. In Relentless, Kenna is on the run from the government after having unearthed secrets about superpowered people while her boyfriend is in jail awaiting execution and her mother is held captive. However, there are even more secrets to be exposed that will tie all Heroes and Villains together. To survive long enough to expose them, Kenna must rely on her greatest power—her unwillingness to back down from a fight. Give to young adults looking for an action-packed title to read between their wait for the next installments in the various popular comic book movie franchises.

I liked Keena's development as a character. To go from nothing to super powerful, not to mention everything she has to endure. She is just an amazing character. The friends that she makes and surrounds herself with are intriguing. I think Rebel may still be my favorite though. The book will take you on a roller coaster of emotions and still make you want more. The book ties up all the questions nicely but left it where they could still come back and add to the series.
It was a 5/5 for me. I want more books like this to read!
We pick up shortly where we left off. Kenna and the villains realize that Rex Malone, the superhero leader, is one bad dude. He now has Draven and Kenna’s mother in his possession, and he also has Rebel under some sort of influence that makes her very un-Rebel like. Kenna will do everything it takes to rescue them all. And that’s where we find ourselves in the first chapter.
It’s no surprise that after that mission, the villains must figure out how to stop Malone for good. But they have to figure out how to undo whatever was done to Rebel first. For she is still acting like the heroes biggest supporter, and we all know that’s not the real Rebel. When Kenna uses some of her smarts left by her mother, they’re able to think of a suitable plan to get the old Rebel back.
This was one awesome read! I’ve always enjoyed the comic book movies, never read the original comics myself. But I find the stories fascinating! This one included, because we don’t have just ordinary people here, they’re super heroes and villains and the villains aren’t really what you would expect! Nor are the heroes for that matter! I think that’s part of the appeal here with this series. Nothing is what you would expect and I love that!
The pacing was incredible too! There’s not much for dull moments in this one. Our villains are always moving from one plan to the next. For the grand goal becomes to take Malone down.
We get a new character added to the mix, her name is V and yeah, she’s a villain too. She was left behind to watch over the Power Twins by Anton. Which I was kind of surprised that the leader of a villains really did just make a walk on appearance. After he leaves, we don’t see him again, at all. I would’ve thought he would at least pop up once or twice before the end. Or at least at the very end, but there was nothing. It was a minor disappointment but nothing to get too upset over. But back to V! She’s one awesome villain! She pretty much takes her “babysitting” job seriously and watches out for the boys. It’s not long before Jeremy is totally smitten with her and tries to gain her affection. It was funny too, because V is not your girly girl type! I loved watching them banter!
And naturally, the chemistry between Draven and Kenna is still spot on! I love how these two have become close. And sure, in a sense you could say it was insta-love, I can’t really remember how quickly they fell for each other in the first book, but the “L” word is thrown around in this one and yeah, it’s cheesy, but still gives you some gushy feels during the eye-roll! LOL!
We get quite a few shockers thrown at us in this one! Ones I wish we could see further in a sense, but as I said, I get the feeling that this is the last book. While everything is pretty much wrapped up, I just wished there was more details to a few things. Like Y and Z happened…but I just want to know more about those aftermaths! It’s more like getting a statement of fact thrown at you and that’s all there is to it. A few more pages with added details would’ve been nice as well. But I can see from the way the book ended, with another particular event, that overall aftermath will just have to be left to the reader’s imagination.
Relentless was an action packed, amazing read! I pretty much loved every moment of it. (Not counting those two little nuisances!) It’s a duology that will keep you reading late into the night! It’s especially addicting since it deals with superheroes and villains, and since my primary reads are filled with paranormal beings, I quite enjoyed this breath of fresh air! So if you’re looking for an exciting read that’s outside the box, be sure to pick this duology up!
