Sentence Sneak Peek - The Rise of Renegade X

The Rise of Renegade X by Chelsea M. Campbell

The first sentence from each chapter of The Rise of Renegade X, it's a mini summary of what you can expect to read.

*Spoilers are highlighted like so :)

"Golden City isn't your average tourist trap."

"Mother," I call out, knocking a couple times as I open her lab door, "do you have a moment?"

"The Gallant Gentleman, a superhero in one of those red fox-hunting outfits British people wear, twirls his riding crop and scowls at me."

"The next morning, I'm on the trail of the Crimson Flash."

"Mom sold me out."

"You want to tell me about this?"

"Sarah presses forward, forcing me against the wall outside the school, and whispers in my ear."


"Monday afternoon, Sarah and I share an armrest on the train."

"I have to wave my gun around a bit more, but eventually I got the train to stop and let us off."

"When we get to Vilmore, I call up everyone I know who goes to school here."

"We stop by the main office—which is deserted at this time of night—and grab the key to Dr. Kink's room."

"I'm so glad you didn't let me come home," I tell Mom Tues-day morning before school."

"In tonight's scheme, I will be playing the parts of both the Midnight Marvel—the supervillain partner to the lovely Shapeshifter—and, simultaneously, that of Renegade X, the super cool superhero, looked up to by his brilliant sidekick, the Cosine Kid."

"I look like some sort of ragamuffin."

"I'm sorry, Damien."

"I didn't think I'd ever be back at the Tines house, but this is important."

"The Banking and Finances building is dark when I arrive, but I don't doubt Pete's up there."

"We burst onto the roof, and I don't look too far to the edge, afraid of getting dizzy and blowing this."

"Kat and I are sitting on a cement planter outside the Banking and Finances building."

"That," Kat says, looking up at the shark swimming by behind the glass, "is a triangle, mister."
