She’s delayed it seberal times and when asked, will not give any dates. She keeps releasing new series though. I’m gonna stop reading this author since she has no intention of finishing her series. Smh. Sorry just really annoyed. I stopped waiting for this book. Will be surprised if she releases it this year or any time in the future at all. I consider the last book as the end of the series-seriously.(less)

This latest badlands book was a really good addition to the series and I enjoyed it very much.
But for some reason, I was under the impression this was actually a menage, not sure why I thought that but was surprised to find it isn't.
This story centres on Luce and a new character Star, its set after the events of the previous books and the storyline concerning A. R. C. and the Stags is continued here so to fully appreciate this you really need to have read the past books of this series, (well the

Third book in the BADLANDS NEXT GENERATION, Renegades once again immersed me into the dark, violent and ruthless atmosphere of the Badlands. 

The beginning completely intrigued and capticated me, introducing a new character, Star. 

Prisoner of thr A.R.C faction, her strength and resilience equal her intelligence. I liked that she fought and knew which battle were worth fighting.


Back with the Savages, Cameron dances with his demons and Bella slowly gets back on track.

Luce embraces his destiny while

This was everything I wanted and more when it comes to this author and the Badlands series. Each book I read I love even more than the previous. Make sure you read the previous books.

Luce crikey what a character. The author blew my mind with him. Him and Star are perfect for each other.

Sorry my review may be vague but this is a series you need to read and feel for yourself. I’m so looking forward to reading more from Natalie.

What an awesomely effed up, crazy series! Luce has always intrigued me and I loved reading his story. I thought he and Star were a pretty good match, and I'm glad there wasn't a love triangle. Looking forward to Samael and Lilith's story next, but I really can't wait for Cam's story.

I love our Badland devious and deviant characters, and I was particularly excited to return to learn more about Lucifuge and Cam- and we get to spend time with both here. Lucifuge because, dear goodness, I wanted to see what a mini-Romero was like and get inside his head since we can CLEARLY see in other books, especially Addy’s, that he’s the subversive master planner just like his father- moving everyone around on a chess board without them knowing the game. And Cam because his story is just s ...more

I’ve been waiting for this book for so long. I wanted more of the next generation and I finally got it! I forgot how twistedly good Natalie Bennett’s characters are. Welcome back to the Badlands!!!!!!

Lucifuge “Luce” Deville is exactly what you would anticipate and so much more. After all he’s the Devil’s son and the future King of the Badlands. Romero and Calista did an extremely good job raising him to be exactly as cruel and twisted as he can be. I have to say that I loved Luce more than Romer

Wow ! Natalie Bennett never disappoints with a dark and twisted fucked up story and she DELIVERED with Renegades!

I’ve been dying for Lucifuge’s story him being Romero and Calista’s son and they are by far my FAVORITE couple that this author has created, so I was so excited to finally get to read Luce and Astraea’s story ! And this couple is definitely the new king and queen to reign over there dark and twisted empire that Luce’s parents had created !

I LOVE THE BADLANDS! This was another exciting glimpse into the mystery surrounding the kidnapping of one of the Savage princesses. Two people find each other through tragedy and the sparks fly. Every detail Natalie puts into these stories is thrilling and I don’t ever want it to end. The characters are scary, sexy, and intriguing. I stayed up all night reading this one, I just couldn’t put it down! A+++
Joanna Garcia  Cuéllar
For me, there are books that i like and then, there are books like this one. Books that i have to consume in one sitting or else i will freak out. This is a book for a single sitting. It is very good and very dark. She has done it again.
LaToya (Readingbythebayou)
Lucifuge is just as cunning as his father! I always love to come back to the Badlands and these depraved characters. Luce meets his match in Star. She fit right in with the Savages and will definitely be a great queen. A lot of questions were answered but now I'm wondering where the author will take us in the future. I really enjoyed this book another hit!

sighs It feels good to be back in the Badlands. I have so missed this world.



I finished this book a few days back. Like with the other books in this series, I find these stories hard to review they way I like to review (bear with me while I try).

The stories within this series are so atmospheric. The characters and factions are so diverse. When I start reading a Badlands book, I am sucked into that world. And what a fucked up dystopia that is.

Before I get started, I just wanted to say this. I wa

Whose ready for the next Epic Twist in the Badlands Saga???? Natalie Bennett has a brilliant and stellar mind creating these beautiful twisted worlds filled with beautiful, deadly, sexy characters and stories that keep you guessing till the very end....and sometimes past that. Renegades was nothing short of nail biting and full of surprises and there are still more surprises left to be shown us in this continuing saga. When the new generation began and Luce was introduced I wasn’t really sure if ...more

Outstanding!

My introduction to Natalie Bennett as an author was Savages, and she has kept me on pins and needles since that book. I typically don’t like dark romances, but something about the stories really pulled me in and kept my attention. And I found that I liked the darkness and deviance that I read. And I can say that Renegades did not disappoint me.

Luce (Lucifuge) is very much like his father .. he is calculating and always thinking 10 steps ahead. He is almost obsessive with his quest to

A small moment of peace before all he 'll breaks loose

I wondered how Bennett was going to approach Luce's story
How she was going to piece back together all the broken parts

When I last visited the Badlands there was so much pain
Betrayal heavily blanketed the Savages' family
But the OG's knew they had to step back
That some lessons could only be learned first hand
The only way to properly baptize the next generation was in a river of crimson -
Only the strongest would make it to the other side

Renegades (Badlands #7) by Natalie Bennett is a book I have been waiting for since I finished book 6 which came out in March 2019. So let me say please reread book 6 before you read this book. It just helps with remembering what all has previously been happening in the lives of our characters. This story focuses on Lucifuge. Cameron, Bella and Ice. While out on a patrol they come across a scared, mudcaked girl with a wet soaked nightgown on with part of a handcuff on one of her wrist. Star has j ...more

In this book we finally get to meet Luce fully ( who we've seen and read about in previous books ) and get to see the man/devil he is and what he's capable of!! When a bunch of girls escape a fraction called the A.R.C, having been through some hellish things Star is determined to get free after being held there for as long as she can remember she's

The king-in-waiting finds his queen! This third installment in the new gen Savages, the degenerates, is full of mayhem, mystery, brutality and a dark romance. The warring factions and unlikely alliances in the Badlands come together to end one of the worse. The A.R.C. is undone when their redemption escapes to land with the Savages. Star is the ultimate prize and the chemistry between her and Luce is undeniable. She fast becomes his focus with her light to his dark. A couple of the degenerates a ...more

I've never hidden the fact that I'm a HUGE fan of Natalie Bennett with all of the darkness in her stories, especially since she actually started me on my journey of dark stories, however, Renegades, was a tad different than the norm. Now, that's not to say that it didn't provide all kinds of dark elements of torture & blood, just saying that there was something different in a great way. I absolutely LOVED how she changed it up a bit with the hero, Luce. He's psychotic, but on different levels, a ...more

What more can I say that hasn’t been said before, Nat I don’t know how you do it but you write the most twisted depraved couples out there and I just fall and fall more and more deeply in love with them and with YOU!!!

Luce is a dark soon to be king of the Savages, he knows everything that goes around him, he is darkness cover in yummy, Star seems fragile but under that sweetness is something darker that is coming out, she has a rebels heart.

Luce and Star are going to be one awesome King and Quee

Ohh Natalie feeds my dark heart with so much carnage in a world that is devious. This series is one of my favorites.
This is not your average love story. Far from it. Luce is on the path to take the throne of the Savages. He is a cut throat bad ass just like his father Romero taught him to be. Trusting no one other than his family. On a run to check out one of their properties they come across a girl running from someone.
Star has lived the last few years of her life in a cage being abused. On t

Everything I enjoy about all the dark and twisty things Natalie knows how to bring to the table. The multiple POVs are amazing and I get so much more from a story seeing things from different perspectives. The story is layered and dripping with darkness. I absolutely loved the dynamics among the main trio and how there was always a sense of mystery creeping in the shadows. Once I opened the book I could not stop reading. I devoured every raw and gory word craving each more than my next breath. I ...more

I don't think I will ever tire of the Badlands. The push and pull that the world induces is inspiring. I fell in love with each of the OG Savages, I think I fell harder for their children. Luce is a perfect combination of Romero and Calista. He's the devil we all want to know and love. Star is still a bit of a mystery and I really hope we get more of her backstory later on. She's badass and I would love to see how dark her soul truly is. Luce's soul is a black hole. It sucks all the light in its ...more
