Tell Me About It
Silver Blackthorn is a fugitive.
Silver Blackthorn has committed treason.
She is dangerous.
Do not approach her.
A large reward is on offer. Report any sightings to your nearest kingsman.
Long live the king.
Silver Blackthorn is on the run. She fled Windsor Castle with 11 other teenagers, taking with her something far more valuable than even she realizes: knowledge.
With the entire country searching for the missing offerings, Silver must keep them all from the vicious clutches of King Victor and the Minister Prime. Until now, no one has escaped the king and lived to tell the tale. Or have they?
With expectations weighing heavily on the girl with the silver streak in her hair, will she ever find her way home?
My Thoughts
I have loved this series from the moment I first read Reckoning. When I listened to the audiobook for Reckoning I loved it, and went onto Renegade with Kat's voice in my head as Silver. When I got the chance to review an audiobook of Renegade I could not download it fast enough.

I really don't want to repeat myself too much with this review for Renegade, you can see my full review of the book in the link above. Going into Renegade I already knew what was going to happen in the end, but hearing them instead of reading them made them feel like a new event. I loved how it felt like it was a new story for me, how I was just as nervous as my first read of it. The Renegade audiobook sits proudly next to Reckoning, and I am really looking forward to listening to this series again once the next book has been published.

The Narration
My review of Reckoning shows how much I loved Kat's narration for this series, and Renegade was no exception. To me she is the voice of Silver, and now when I read the books it's Kat I hear. When I was tweeting my progress for Renegade to Kerry, he told me that Kat's finest moment came near the end. Not only is Kat possibly the best person to bring Silver to life, but Kerry was also right.
I knew what was coming, I knew the ending of this book and how it all played out, but having Kat tell me the story, listening to her voice and the emotion she puts into it made it a new experience. I cried......on the bus.....on my way to work.

Final Verdict
Renegade is just as good as an audiobook as it is in a paperback. I loved every minute of this book and often found myself listening to it for 'just 30 minutes more' at stupid hours of the morning on a work night.
