From Goodreads:

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.

This whole series has been a dark, deep descent into madness and sorrow and anger. Adelina is evil, creeping further and further away from the line that divided evil from good. I'm so excited to see how this series will end, how many more will die because of her and around her. I do wonder if Adelina herself will die at the end, if she's too far gone from redemption and has to be defeated.


  1. I love this one just for the cover. If it's good too that's a bonus ha ha but I would own this just for that awesome cover. And I've heard The Young Elites are good I'm thinking of trying them now.

  2. I unfortunately DNFed this series with the first book - I'm not really a fan of Marie Lu ... Enjoy it when you get it!!

  3. Love the cover :) Never read anything of Marie Lu but thinking of giving her a try.

  4. I didn't love the first book in this series, and haven't read the second. But I do love this cover! Great pick!
