5 Superheroes Books Like Renegades

Superheroes Fantasy

Renegades by Marissa Meyer is a young adult superhero novel about a hero Vs. Villains book series. It is all about a world where the superpowers people are called prodigies. The world was amiss, like a lot of things were happening. They had these gangs, and there was another gang. They would terrorize the whole world, City and Gatlin. Society was not going well because people were stealing. Then the Renegades came in.

So the Renegades are a group of prodigies that consider themselves superheroes and want to help the city of Gatlin and want to change it for good. They take over the city, and they will save it from all these bad things happening. But we also have a group called the Anarchists, who are the story’s villains. So they don’t believe in Renegade’s theory of helping people and saving people.

The Renegades want to control the city and help people at all costs as they wish. The anarchists are not all about that. They’re letting people fend for themselves. So this book is The Renegades versus the Anarchists. Books like Renegades offer complex moralities, engage with captivating world-building, connect with dynamic characters, reflect on identity, self-discovery, and exciting plots. By diving into these stories, you expand your perspective, stimulate your imagination, and immerse yourself in deep thoughts.

5 Books Like Renegades (Superheroes Fantasy)

Renegades is a fantasy superheroes vibe book where society depends on Renegades too much, making power. These renegades make these powers that should not be in the actual house. They do not need to make the decisions.

I get a huge X-Men vibe from this book if you’re a huge fan of the Marvel Universe, particularly X-Men. The novel explores the moral gray areas and ethical dilemmas faced by heroes and villains, blurring the line between good and evil. Now I am going to talk about five books similar to Renegades. Let’s go!

1. We Hunt the Flame

We Hunt the Flame is the first book in the “Sands of Arawiya” duology, offering a richly imagined world and a thrilling adventure. The book is set in a mystical, Arabian world, and we are following a girl (Zafira) who disguises herself as a boy. She is the hunter of her land.

She goes into a magical forest and is tasked by the Silver Witch to go to this mystical island to restore all of the magic. But here’s the prince of this land, the prince of darkness. He is a skilled assassin, killing everybody for his father. He is tasked by his father to follow her, kill this hunter, and take whatever she is looking for.

Our prince of darkness is a secret, sad, soft boy. So when he meets Zafira, he won’t want to kill her. He’s going to fall in love with her. Like Renegades, this book feels very new adult to me in that way our characters think about things like the complexities they deal with in this book. The setting was so magical that they were constantly confronted with their fears and past mistakes. They have to keep moving and going forward with all the characters they meet. It was so endlessly fascinating.

2. Daughter of the Pirate King

Daughter of the Pirate King follows a girl named Alosa, and she’s the daughter of this infamous Pirate King. He sends her on this mission to get captured by this enemy pirate ship to obtain a portion of the map. It can lead to the epic treasure. The pirate king has one portion because one portion was given to each of the three main pirate lords, which sets off from there.

The entire book takes place on a pirate ship, and it’s marketed as a pirate book. It stands alone from Pirates of the Caribbean, but you can tell that the author got inspiration from that and that Jack Sparrow is a very influential character in her writing.

Alosa is marketed as a female Jack Sparrow. There’s also a love interest in the story. It’s a one-off adventure story, and this little quest is not too expansive. But it still has all the outstanding fantasy elements you want for a little magic romance similar to Renegades.

3. Shadow and Bone

Shadow and Bone follows a girl named Alina Starkov. We’re in this world that is very Russian-inspired. They’re wizards or magic users within this world. When Elena is discovered to be one of these Grisha, she is taken and put into the school for training. Then we hit about halfway, and somebody from Elena’s past comes back into her life.

So Elena was orphaned and raised with another boy named Mal. They did everything together. They were in the army together. When we are introduced to them at the beginning of this book, Elena is pining hard for him, and to unlock her power, even she has to let him go. He was a barrier for her to be able to unlock her power.

The Darkling is the villain, and he won’t work with Elena. He will enslave her, put this collar around her neck and take control of the fold. Suddenly, it’s all told to you, and Elena doesn’t question it. Then she meets up with Mal again, and it doesn’t make sense with where she’d been at the beginning of this book. Alina was making herself sick by hiding her power to stay with Mal. When she let him go, she became so much better. She was so much happier. If you like Renegades, you must give it a chance.

4. Warcross

Warcross is an immersive and adrenaline-fueled read that combines exciting virtual reality gaming and compelling characters. Our main character, Emika, is a bounty hunter. She’s a pretty great hacker, and she accidentally hacks herself into the massive game of Warcross and attracts the creator’s attention to the entire online immersive experience.

He wants her to find this person trying to take down this site. It’s like a virtual reality where people wear glasses and see things like altering their reality. Then there’s a game and a competition that happens once a year, and this young kid invented everything. So it was an exciting premise.

It’s very easy to see where this whole story will go. The world was not enough to make it enjoyable because the characters were extremely flat. The entire story has an ethical dilemma and people being against the games. You will find the characters and plot excitement vibe like Renegades.

5. Caraval

Caraval follows Scarlett and her sister, Stella, and their whole lives. They’ve dreamed of going to Carnival, a magical festival where they can participate in this game and be a part of the show. The girls have wanted to attend Carnival since their grandmother told them about the event as kids.

Realistically, they knew that they would probably never get the opportunity to go because they knew that their abusive father would never allow them to go. Then one day, the girls received tickets. So they’ve got to go regardless of their father.

When Scarlett arrives at Carnival, her sister has gone missing, and that’s when she begins to realize that the disappearance of her sister, Tila, has become a part of the show. To win the show, she must find Tyler. That’s the general idea as to what this story is all about. It’s a magical and adventurous story full of mystery and suspense.

The atmosphere of Carvel is so vibrant and dreamy, and you can’t help but feel like you’re being bewitched by a car. Of all the writing, stylistically, it was whimsical and rich. Everything is detailed in a way that’s easy to visualize, similar to Renegades.
