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?

Why I’m Waiting

The Rose Society is the follow-up to another book that’s been on my TBR Pile for a spell, The Young Elites. I am waiting for this book, because it seems really interesting, and the cover intrigued me. Also, seeing the cover reminded me that I need to begin this series. Since it doesn’t come out until this fall I have time, and probably read The Young Elites closer to The Rose Society’s release.

Have you begun this series? What did you think? Please let me know if it’s worth my time. Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme where bloggers reveal the pre-publication  books they are eagerly awaiting. Thanks to Breaking the Spine for hosting this fun meme!

      I’m really loving Legend. Finished it today, and picked up Prodigy and Champion on the way home today. Ugh, that sucks losing a book! At least you’ll be able to finish it this fall.

  2. It seems like there are some mixed feeling about The Young Elites, primarily from Legend fans who a) are comparing it to Legend and b) are upset it’s not Legend.
    The Young Elites was the first book i’d ever read by Marie Lu and frankly, I was blown away. I love the writing and the world, I loved that it was dark. I loved the main character, Adelina and how she was an anti-hero. And despite the small issues I had with it or times when I got angry with Adelina, I just thought it was wonderful.
    Phew. Sorry about that. Kind of went off on a tangent there.
    Anyways, I am SO PSYCHED for The Rose Society. And I hope you enjoy The Young Elites

      Me, too! I hate when the heroine is perfect, because it makes her boring and unrelatable. Thanks for stopping by!
