By Marie Lu

Release date: October 13, 2015

From Goodreads:
From New York Times bestselling author Marie Lu comes the second book in the exhilarating Young Elites series

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 that murdered her love, the Crown Prince Enzo Valenciano.

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?

My Thoughts:
I recently read The Young Elites and loved it; it was a 5 star rating for me. I am so excited to get my copy of The Rose Society. I absolutely love Marie Lu’s writing style. I love how dark this series is and I cannot wait to see what happens next for Adelina. There were many twists and turns and loose ends left at the end of The Young Elites.

The cover for The Rose Society is gorgeous and intriguing. I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy of this novel; October 13 can’t get here soon enough!

  1. You and me both sister! OMG I'm so excited for this one. I love the cover to. After reading book 1 the cover makes so much sense now :)

  2. I know right??!! I cannot wait!! Hopefully we'll be able to read it together as soon as it's released :)

  3. I want this book for the cover alone. I still need to read the first one though. I have never read any Marie Lu books before so I don't know if this is a good place to start - the Legend series never interested me much.

    1. I think this series would be a good place to start. I read the first book in the Legend trilogy and really liked it, but I was blown away by this one. If you like fantasy, darker fantasy, I would definitely give this series a try. I wrote a spoiler free review of The Young Elites if you want a few more thoughts on the series.
