An explosive new series from New York Times bestselling author of the Legend trilogy, Marie Lu
By permitting her characters some grand failures, she raises the stakes in the best way possible There is clearly more to know, and I look forward to it. This is a world worth revisiting. The New York Times Book Review
Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever. A decade ago, the deadly illness swept through her nation. Most of the infected perished, while many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. Adelina s black hair turned silver, her lashes went pale, and now she has only a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Her cruel father believes she is a malfetto, an abomination, ruining their family s good name and standing in the way of their fortune. But some of the fever s survivors are rumored to possess more than just scars they are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites.
Teren Santoro works for the king. As Leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before they destroy the nation. He believes the Young Elites to be dangerous and vengeful, but it s Teren who may possess the darkest secret of all.

the first book of the best trilogy i've ever read, my favourite scenes of this book by far are those of training and exploring lore.
   and I don't like to feel like that
I ordered this book from Amazon to get it as quickly as possible for my library, because this author's legend series is hugely popular. Because I had no reviews to read, so I had no idea that it would be dramatically different from the Legends series. It makes you feel horrible inside when you read it and I don 't like to feel like that, and I am positive that no middle schoolers need to feel like that. Don 't get me wrong, it is savorging and the writing flows, but it has no soul. I remember only 1 Cuss word, and there is not a lot of sexual content, but the whole feeling of the book is soulless, violent and darkly sensual. I can not think of a better word to describe it than dark not bleak, not dismal, not despairing, just a deep darkness. Watch out parents for this one.
   Way Too Dark For Me!
I have been known to love dystopian and darker novels, but this one was way too much for me to deal with. After loving Lu's Legend series, I was prepared to finish this one too, but I couldn t even love it. It was so gloomy and dark that any pleasure went right over my head. She set the scene well and her descriptions are spot-on, but it is just not the right setting for me.
   Always good stuff from Lu
This series is absolutely amazing. It is located along the same lines as Hunger Games, Divergent, etc. It is that post-apocalyptic world where there is a hero who rises up against this government.
   I don't think I've read a book quite like this one -- and I've read my fair share ...
I don 't think I have read a book quite like this -- and I have read my fair share of books. The knowledge that the dark character would at some point in her life make this book a... character study, of sorts. It was interesting to see how the choices she made throughout the book would affect the rest of her life course. I am glad that I read it!
I read this in two sittings based on a tiktok video of books to read from a villain's perspective. I enjoyed it thoroughly and am glad that it is a series and not a standalone ''.
I think this book was good ''. It s really creative ''. For example, there is this girl called Adelina and it has mystical powers! On who would have thought of that, come on. And also a book that has fantasy, romance, adventures and so much more! It has also evilness and darkness in it. If you haven 't already read it, you have to read it just. It is absolutely amazing!
This read to me like a fanfiction. No offense to fanfic writers, but the story itself was so basic and predictable that I started skimming when I reached the end. To its merit, the story falls on a high note, but quickly starts again near the end. The plot becomes painfully predictable to the point that it was like a story plot generator had filled a good 80% of the narrative. I did not go with high expectations and I wouldn 't say that I was disappointed. The book was well below average when it comes to similar fantasy stories about super-powered people being ostracized by society.
   Not what I expected from the author
It is hard to describe how I felt about this book. I'm intrigued enough to read more, it's just that I don 't care for the protagonist. Adelina is an unlikeable character. She has little redeeming properties and a lot of the book is Woe is me. The story does flow, but also feels rushed in parts, especially around relationship building. Some of the supporting characters are now quite interesting and I'm hoping that we get more into their stories in the next book. The book is also told from multiple perspectives, which I feel takes away from getting to know and understand the leading lady really well. In this life, there is a lot of death and darkness and very little joy.
   Great book so far (I'm still reading it) but I ...
So far, great book, but I have a complaint. The paper used in the book feels cheap. It feels like recycled paper and compared to the paper they used for the Legends series, there is a night and day difference. If you're careful with the book, it'll be fine, but if you're a little harsh with it, it's pretty likely that you rip the book.
