The thrilling finale to the New York Times bestselling Young Elites series from “hit factory” Marie Lu.

There was once a time when darkness shrouded the world, and the darkness had a queen.

Adelina Amouteru is done suffering. She’s turned her back on those who have betrayed her and achieved the ultimate revenge: victory. Her reign as the White Wolf has been a triumphant one, but with each conquest her cruelty only grows. The darkness within her has begun to spiral out of control, threatening to destroy all that she’s achieved.

Adelina’s forced to revisit old wounds when a new danger appears, putting not only Adelina at risk, but every Elite and the very world they live in. In order to save herself and preserve her empire, Adelina and her Roses must join the Daggers on a perilous quest—though this uneasy alliance may prove to be the real danger.

Bestselling author Marie Lu concludes Adelina's story with this haunting and hypnotizing final installment to the Young Elites series. 


Now on to my post!

Top 5 reasons to read The Young Elites Series I'll use a couple quotes sent by Penguin teen.

1. There aren't any good guys (not really) the MC's in the book and most of the other characters are bad guys. I wouldn't even call them anti-heroes although some may.



2. The worldbuilding is absolutely breathtaking! It's set in a fantasy world but it's an awful lot like Europe.

3. I love the multiple POV's.

4. The swoon worthy boys! Yes I am an Enzo girl but Maggiano and Teren are pretty hot too!

5. Marie just knows how to write a beautiful story. Even though I most of the characters got under my skin at times I still couldn't stop myself from reading to see what came next!












About Marie:
I write young adult novels, and have a special love for dystopian books. Ironically, I was born in 1984. Before becoming a full-time writer, I was an Art Director at a video game company. Now I shuffle around at home and talk to myself a lot. :)

I graduated from the University of Southern California in '06 and currently live in LA, where I spend my time stuck on the freeways.
