    A thrilling new read

    When I first heard about a new book from Marie Lu, I HAD TO read it. I loved Marie Lu’s Legend trilogy and I was read her next work. And I am super glad to be able to say that The Young Elites does not disappoint. A decade ago, an illness spread through Adelina’s world, and many lives were lost. Those of the infected who survived are now showing strange symptoms. Adelina’s hair has turned silver and she has a jagged scar where her left eye used to be. To top it all off, her father believes shes a malfetto, an abomination. But young people exhibiting strange symptoms after surviving the plague are now rumoured to have strange gifts and there’s a secret society of them called The Young Elites. I honestly loved Adelina, she’s strong, tough, and she grows so much throughout the novel. I don’t want to give anything away about that so that’s all I’m going to say. I also loved Adelina’s family life, and seeing how her early childhood heavily influenced her later in life was awesome. I loved reading her interaction with The Young Elites, and seeing how they influenced her heavily. Enzo, the leader of the Elites, was also just a delight to read about. The world-building of The Young Elites was just fantastic, and compared to most fantasy novels I’ve read, the world wasn’t hard to comprehend which made it a delight to read. The plot was fast-paced at times, and sometimes a little slow, but overall everything felt smoothly and quickly. Overall, The Young Elites is a fantastic novel by a fantastic author. The main character was fantastic, the romance was indeed very swoony and the world-building was great but not too confusing to read. I recommend this one for fans looking for an intricately-written and character driven novel.

    crazy amazing!

    This book kept me on the edge of my seat through the whole thing! I think I've felt every emotion possible in the two days it took me to finish this. An emotional rollercoaster for sure, but an enjoyable one. This book is amazing, and refreshing! I recommend it to everyone who enjoys a little suspense in their lives!

    Dark, Dangerous, and Thrilling

    4.5. Well, this was definitely not what I was expecting to read. That said, I remember why I love Marie Lu. She's not shy about putting her characters through emotional and physical hell. She's not scared to break the mould and create a brand new world with intense characters, dangerous stakes, and a thousand twists you won't see coming. Right from the get-go, we're thrust into the dark life of Adelina Amouteru. Immediately you know she's not your typical heroine. She's not traditionally beautiful and has a devastating dark power–– a power that gets her the attention of the rebels of the Daggers Society. I was captivated by this book and am so excited about what comes next. The world is incredible and detailed, the action is intense, and I love how things just keep going wrong. Maybe that's sadistic of me, but I enjoyed it (the ending aside). As mentioned, the characters are unique. Adelina is temperamental and dangerous and while she's the main character, I can't help but wonder if we're seeing the rise of a villain? Watching her lose control of her powers is thrilling, and seeing what it costs her is devastating, especially at the end which takes a major twist. The side characters are complex and diverse, especially Enzo and Raffaele. Teren, wicked as he was, is also a very interesting character to watch. The whole story was dark and deadly and exciting. I'm aching to see what happens next!
