Haven't heard of THE ROSE SOCIETY? Check it out!

Title: THE ROSE SOCIETY
Author: Marie Lu
Release Date: October 13, 2015
Pages: 416
Publisher: G.P. Putnam's Sons Books for Young Readers
Formats: Hardcover, paperback, eBook, audiobook
Once upon a time, a girl had a father, a prince, a society of friends. Then they betrayed her, and she destroyed them all.

Adelina Amouteru’s heart has suffered at the hands of both family and friends, turning her down the bitter path of revenge. Now known and feared as the White Wolf, she and her sister flee Kenettra to find other Young Elites in the hopes of building her own army of allies. Her goal: to strike down the Inquisition Axis, the white-cloaked soldiers who nearly killed her.

But Adelina is no heroine. Her powers, fed only by fear and hate, have started to grow beyond her control. She does not trust her newfound Elite friends. Teren Santoro, leader of the Inquisition, wants her dead. And her former friends, Raffaele and the Dagger Society, want to stop her thirst for vengeance. Adelina struggles to cling to the good within her. But how can someone be good, when her very existence depends on darkness?

Now on to the interview!

1.       Would you rather be a Dagger or a Rose?

Probably a Dagger! They’ve been having some bad luck, but Raffaele is a less scary leader than Adelina.

2.     Would you rather be Adelina, Violetta, or June if you had to pick one of your heroines or villain from both series?

Oh—June, totally! I wish I had her brain, and she doesn’t go insane at any point in her story….

3.     Would you rather be with Enzo, Magiano, or Day?

It’s a tough call between Magiano and Day…but if I were a teen, I’d go with Day.

4.    Would you rather have the ability to fly or teleport?

Teleport!!! It’s like the faster version of flying!



5.     Would you rather have the ability to read minds or to heal?

To heal. I’m not sure I’d want to know what people are thinking. That could be kind of a curse, right?

6.    Would you rather change the past or be able to see into the future?

Change the past, I guess—seeing the future would take all the fun out of life!

7.     Would you rather be able to visit 100 years in the past or 100 years in the future?

100 years into the future, because think of all the cool things that might exist by then! Maybe we’ll all be cyborgs, or living on Mars.

8.    Would you rather be super strong or super fast?

Super fast.

9.     Would you rather read one awesome book for the rest of your life or a hundred mediocre books?

ONE AWESOME BOOK. ALWAYS ONE AWESOME BOOK.



10. Would you rather eat sweet or salty foods?

Salty foods! I have a salt tooth. Maybe I was a goat in my past life.



11.    Would you rather have a dragon or be a dragon?

Have a dragon—then I can fly on a dragon but still have all the comforts of having, like, opposable thumbs and pretty clothes.



12.  Would you rather get up early or stay up late?

Get up early. I’m a morning person.

13.  Would you rather speak every language in the world or play every instrument?

Speak every language! How cool would that be—traveling would be so much easier!

14. Would you rather always have the same song stuck in your head or always have the same dream at night?

Depends on the song or the dream…..if it’s a great dream, like one where I can fly and stuff, then I pick the dream. I’m not sure I’d want any song forever stuck in my head, even my favorite ones!



15.  Would you rather live in space or under the sea?

SPAAAACE.

16. Would you rather take a vacation on an exotic island or in a romantic city?

Romantic city!!!!

17.  Would you rather live without a telephone or a television?

Hmmm. I could go without the television—but, hey, this is a hard question! Does a smartphone still count as NOT a television??

18. Would you rather live in the city or the country?

Again, depends on the city or country. If the countryside is absolutely breathtaking and I could get to the city within an hour, then I pick countryside.



19.  Would you rather live by the ocean or by the mountains?

Auuuugh your questions are so challenging! The mountains. No—the ocean. No, mountains. Noooo oceans. Okay I go with oceans. Fewer bears and mountain lions if you live near the ocean.

20.   Would you rather be stuck in a house with someone you hate or be stuck in a house alone?

I just had an image of being stuck in a house with Donald Trump and I WILL ALWAYS PICK ALONE.

I am tired of being used, hurt, and cast aside.

Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever. A decade ago, the deadly illness swept through her nation. Most of the infected perished, while many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. Adelina’s black hair turned silver, her lashes went pale, and now she has only a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Her cruel father believes she is a malfetto, an abomination, ruining their family’s good name and standing in the way of their fortune. But some of the fever’s survivors are rumored to possess more than just scars—they are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites.

Teren Santoro works for the king. As Leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before they destroy the nation. He believes the Young Elites to be dangerous and vengeful, but it’s Teren who may possess the darkest secret of all. 

Enzo Valenciano is a member of the Dagger Society. This secret sect of Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they’ve never seen. 

Adelina wants to believe Enzo is on her side, and that Teren is the true enemy. But the lives of these three will collide in unexpected ways, as each fights a very different and personal battle. But of one thing they are all certain: Adelina has abilities that shouldn’t belong in this world. A vengeful blackness in her heart. And a desire to destroy all who dare to cross her.

It is my turn to use. My turn to hurt.
