Edited by Leslie Mitchell at G2 Freelance Editing and re-released 3/14/13.

Though she is free of the palace, rescued from her position as a blood slave, Aria is haunted by the memories of her time spent within the fortress, tormented by memories of Braith, the prince that betrayed her and shattered her heart. Every day is a struggle to get through, and the only solace she is able to find is with Max, her best friend, and fellow captive. Though Max does not understand her bond to Braith, he knows some of what she endured, and helps to ease some of the tattered pieces of her soul. Aria slowly begins to salvage the broken parts of her wounded spirit by throwing herself into the wonder of the woods she had so greatly missed, and the secure and reassuring love that Max freely gives her. Her world is thrown into a tailspin again though when a marauding group of vampires destroy the caves she had found temporary shelter in. Scattered about the forest, seeking to stay hidden and find her family, Aria is stunned when Braith, the monster that savaged her heart, reappears. Stunned by his sudden arrival in her world, Arianna is uncertain if he has come to recapture her, or to kill her for daring to escape.

Mature YA/New Adult. This book contains some language, violence, and sexual situations. Recommended for ages sixteen and up.

Story: GOOD Intimacy Level: NONE Enjoyment: GOOD THOUGHTS Renegade, book 2 is the follow up to Capture. In book 2, I found the first few chapters of the story intense as Braith's anger towards Aria fuels him. It was definitely a darker side of him compared to book 1. As the story progressed and the intensity was over, the story then focuses on the history and back story of the characters and their families. This then introduces us to new characters and Braith's father, the king, is apparently on everyone's 'I Hate You List'. I find Aria and Braith's story a bit like a twisted version of Romeo and Juliet. Their connection is so strong that if anyone breaths wrong on Aria, Braith is ready to kill. This connection is later explained as certain things starts to fall into place between Aria and Braith. When Aria and Braith first connect again in the woods, it was intense, exciting, a bit dangerous and intriguing as their love/hate relationship goes to another level. While all this is going on, I do feel sorry for Max. Max was captured along with Aria in book 1. His feelings are changing for Aria and you can't help but feel for what he is going through. Overall, interesting story/plot and characters. With how the story ends, there will be a book 3. For me, that's a bit annoying when the same characters are continuous in a series. For me that can dwindle my interest pretty quick if there isn't any closure. Nevertheless, that's my opinion, but others may feel different.But book 1 and 2 for me was interesting and I think worth the read.

Stats: 440 nook pages. Paranormal romance. No sex, but intimate moments are plentiful. I loved the first book and gave it 4 stars, this one wasn't as good. Too many words and pages spent on thoughts and feelings and not enough on dialogue and action. I ended up skimming over the inner monologues and only reading the dialogue. I also am very sick Aria crying. I will not buy the 3rd.

I really enjoy this writer's style. The story was fast paced and flowed well. The only complaint I had is that there were a couple spots towards the end where I felt that the main character got a little too lost in her head. Can't wait for #3.

Wonderful followup to Captured! Recurring and new characters all have their back stories and the book is very well written with the exception of two or three grammer mistakes. Get past that and you are in for a wild story! Can't wait for the next one....

The second installment was better than the first. The concept and storyline are great but ultimately, I was not captivated by the characters. I found the dialogue at times to be very minimal between the main characters. Unfortunately there was also times I wasn't sure whose lines belonged to who. I found myself re-reading numerous paragraphs or sentences to get the gist of things. Overall, good quick read with an original concept and storyline. Just wished the characters were developed more with dialogue instead of what they were thinking at the time. Needless to say, I look forward to reading the 3rd book, only because I want too see how things develop and unravel.

I really liked this book and the one before it. The only thing that irritated me was some grammar issues, but hey, nobody's perfect, right? Overral, it has a pretty darn good plot and decent characters. In some places, there was a little too much detail; in others, not enough. I liked how Arianna was described, and I thought she fit into her role well. Braith on the other hand came off a little crazy towards the end of the book. I also think that the author could have done a bit better with making the story more captivating. But all in all, not bad.
