The first book was powerful (pun intended) and the second book won't give up. One could say its even relentless. (I'll stop now.)

It is a bit predictable in some areas but none the less a great series, would recommend.

One word that effectively describes this series is just awesomesauce. For the action lover like me, it satisfies on almost all points. We have a group of teenagers that go against an antagonist who is more than what he seems to be, while discovering things about themselves. Granted, the premise sounds like the many out there. However, the fast pace and nonstop action makes it an adventure that is just plain fun. Certain key points of the book just made it a great and quick read for me. GREAT ACTION SEQUENCE WITH A GREAT PACE The story is not the longest, being a bit less than pages long. But that’s still enough time to properly develop the characters, the plot, and more importantly, the action scenes. Each one of them is significant and isn’t pure fluff. No words are wasted in this book, and the utter lack of drama (seriously, things are kept quite light) just brings out the adventure. Although the book is kept relatively short, there’s still just enough in there to satisfy my appetite for action scenes and people fighting each other. The plot is actually pretty simple, but I was totally good with it – more time for action and friendship scenes! It’s nonstop fun throughout. LOVELY FRIENDSHIPS AMONG WONDERFUL CHARACTERS The group that this story centers around is a mix of both Heroes and Villains. In this world, you’re born as either on or someone who doesn’t have powers. There’s always a prejudice against Villains, but in the first book Powerless (which you can find a review of here), the main character Kenna finds out that things aren’t what seem. What if the Villains are just trying to survive? What if they’re not the bad guys that the media puts them out as? In this book, we find out who the real antagonists are and what their plan is. Throughout it all, we see so much growth between the characters of their group. Each one of their personalities shine and the combination of them all make for a daunting team. From Riley, whose innocence is blasted away from the evil deeds of his father, to Kenna, who finds herself stepping to the task of leading people, they were all such endearing characters. I love their camaraderie and how they just mesh so well together. They’re definitely an underdog team worth reading about. SWEET ROMANCES THAT STAYS ON THE SIDE There are quite a few romances, and all of them are so sigh-inducing. Kenna and Draven have each other’s backs, and the support they lend each other is so nice to see. This also goes with all the other couples that form in the story. And although yes, people are getting into relationships, I love how the authors don’t make such a big deal about it. There is no angsty drama that digresses from the main storyline, and each character still has their priority of saving the world in order. It’s a perfect balance with the great action that we see in the story. “‘We both want to keep each other safe, but there’s no such thing as safety anymore. The whole world is upside down and getting more screwed up every day. There’s no way to guarantee that all of us – that any of us – will make it out of this alive. For as long as we have, I don’t want to be separated from you again. Not if I don’t have to be.'” All in all, Relentless is a solid sequel in The Hero Agenda and although the conclusion is definitely satisfying, I would still love to see more from this lovable cast of characters. Although the short length of the book makes for very minimal world-building and expla

Relentless picks up a few weeks later after the ending of Powerless, and is a non-stop action fest from there on. Rex Malone has her boyfriend on trial and Kenna and her band of hero-villains are out to rescue him, and bring down the Collective which is hiding big secrets from the superhero world. Soon after, they are all on the run for their lives, as well as figuring out a way to stop Rex Malone. Kenna learns a bit about her past, and there is plenty of developments to actually get into here, so I won’t. This book is miles ahead of the first one – that one was all action and not much substance, but here there is plenty of drama, development and reveals. I still feel enough attention wasn’t given to secondary characters, beyond the matching and pairing them up. As for the reveals, they were mind-boggling, one after another. I was hooked into the story and was sneakily reading it during work, too (shh!). My only grievance is with that anti-climactic ending – after all the raising of stakes throughout the book, I felt it came too easily. But otherwise, this book was a great sequel.
