Publisher Description

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 who nearly killed her.

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?

Bestselling author and New York Times proclaimed "hit factory" Marie Lu delivers another heart-pounding adventure in this exhilarating sequel to The Young Elites.

Great story, unique characters

I’ll try not to give direct spoilers! But there are some indirect ones…

It is no easy feat to turn the readers against the main character and still keep them reading. Adelinas descent into villainy is seamless and the story left me hungry for a resolution. The author is not afraid to go to the extremes with her characters and the plot, leaving you unable to guess what happens next. The characters are colorful and complex. My main criticism is that As the Adelina become more unrelatable and irredeemable the reader is left grasping for someone to root for. Magiano, Violetta, and the Daggers, provide this but they don’t get enough air time to fully compensate.

Adelina is crazy and I don't know how to describe this book it's so unlike anything I've ever read ! The main character is a villain and she just keeps digging this hole that is just getting deeper ! I wanted Enzo and Adelina to get together and I thought that was going to happen and then it just seemed impossible. This book is so unpredictable This book fell under the second book curse a little bit because the beginning was very slow and didn't pick up until the end but I enjoyed the book otherwise. I'm excited for what going to happen next .

Wow!

This was really good! This book was different from anything I’ve read before. Adelina is a VERY interesting character. Poor Enzo though...A really good dark fantasy!
