Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (11 ):

Like the first two books in this trilogy, this superhero saga takes its time building, but eventually delivers a Marvel-movie-style explosive finish. But here the lines are a little murkier between good guy and bad, especially when a main character worth rooting for is on the wrong side of the law. Nova's trip to prison seems like the end for her, and readers will wonder through most of Supernova how she's going to escape a life sentence by the end. And eve, if you're really optimistic, how she's going to get Adrian back when he knows the truth and she knows his secrets and they are both supposed to be killing each other.

But how else could Supernova end, even if it's a bit far-fetched? Author Marissa Meyer could have dug deeper into her characters to make the romance more believable and compelling, but there are so many other characters and their fancy superpowers in play, there's little room for deeper roots to grow.
