Yesterday, I finished “The Young Elites” by Marie Lu.
This storyline follws the character of Adelina Amouteru throughout her journey of being a young elite. Throughout her journey, she meets some incredible people who she thinks are her friends and tries to overthow the Crown; allthewhile, not trying to be killed in the process. Enzo Valenciano, the leader of the Young Elites, is quite skeptical of Adelina at first, but he warms up to her later in the novel…and Adelina warms up to him.
I was absolutely stunned by the ending of the novel. Lu had written such an amazing first book to this triology that I cannot wait to read the rest. Her writing style serves her justice. She is one of my favorite authors. I am currently reading the second novel in the trilogy “The Rose Society” and I can’t wait to see what happens in the book.
