    I know who you really are Who will ever want you Adelina?My fury heightens Everyone They will cower at my feet and I will make them bleed Two words Fuck yeahI don't even know how to describe this book Maybe William Shakespeare's Mistborn? It is not without its flaws but the love of a book much like the love of a human is completely chemistry based and for me this book just clicked Every so often the planets align and Khanh completely loves a book It happensThis book has so many elements that I love A very light romance A dark physically scarred main character A beautiful and completely platonic friendship between the main female character and a male courtesan A complex villain And a plot to take over the kingdomCan I get a Fuck yeah?The Summary You tried to escape from me he says but I found you You have lost and I have won I tell him that I’m glad he’s dead I tell him to go away But he staysIt doesn’t matter anyway I’m going to die tomorrow morning Adelina Amouteru is a murderer justified Adelina has a shitty life She is like Cinderella without the stepmother but with a father like hers who needs a wicked stepmother? There is only one word to describe daddy and that word is motherfucking asshole Ok make that two words WhateverAnyway it is a pretty shitty life mainly because not so long ago this fever thing swept through her country killing massive amounts of people leaving the rest physically scarred Adelina herself is not exempt Not only that there is the mental scarring the stigma of being a malfetto Malfettos are feared hated shunned Their very existence puts shame onto a family name Adelina's family formerly wealthy and respected now suffers from her disgrace Because she lived And sadly her fate is far better than somethere have been rumors that the malfetto are cursed as such they have been badly persecutedIt could be worse for Adelina but not by much Her dad hates her Her sister is blissfully under her dad's thumb And now her dad is going to sell her off to be a nasty old man's wife What's a girl to do? Run away And when daddy catches her and cruelly forces her hand? Kill him I am Adelina Amouteru the phantoms whispered to my father speaking my most frightening thoughts in a chorus of voices dripping with hatred My hatred I belong to no one On this night I swear to you that I will rise above everything you’ve ever taught me I will become a force that this world has never known I will come into such power that none will dare hurt me again And that my friends is how Adelina becomes a murderer Totally justified You go girl Way to self defenseOnly she is caught Sadface And she is sentenced to be executed Even sadface Only at the last minute it's always the last minute isn't it? she is saved Not that she needed much saving I mean look at this shit Girl's got it under control yo Then she faints Totally excusable I mean look at that shit And just like that the black clouds twist—they scatter into a swarm of a million moving flecks that swirl across the sky and then dive down down down at the crowd A nightmare of locusts They descend on us with merciless efficiency their buzzing drowning out the people’s cries That takes a lot of energy Maybe an entire package of Oreo's worth of energy Can't blame a girl for fainting after thatNext thing Adelina knows she wakes up in this totally plush place handsome stranger rescuer dude is there and he's in a Super Secret Special Society called The Young Elites Only it's not just ANYONE This guy Enzo is the crown prince The word was that he had nearly died from the blood fever He came out of it marked instead Unfit to be heir to the throne Enzo’s older sister stripped Enzo of his crown and banished him permanently from the palace never again to set foot near the royal family Kind of Not really That's because he too is a malfetto and since the public has been told that malfettoes are BAD EVIL NO GOOD it would be kind of problematic to put one of those people on the throne right? So his uncle the Kingis not fond of the prince to put it lightlyAnd now the prince wants his throne back WHAT DO?? TAKE OVER THE WORLD Or the country at least Baby steps Today the country Tomorrow the universeSo the malfettoes are a potentially powerful bunch The trouble is that malfettoes are aplenty but only a few of them have special powers Is Adelina one of the select ones? Yes But can she actually control her abilities? Can she pass the Young Elites' test?The price for failure is high If for some reason I can’t control my abilities they won’t just cast me out of the Dagger Society I know too much A weak link in a world that wants us dead That weak link could be meIf I cannot pass their tests then they will do to me what they must have done with the boy who could not control the rain They will kill me The Setting I do believe the best word for this setting is plush It has a very Renaissance Italy feel to it and there is plenty of bling The main character is rescued from a somewhat poor existence and boosted into the lap of luxury The setting is oftentimes luxurious There are secret lairs And there are pretty pretty dresses and I DON'T EVEN CARE I loved it allThe Characters How do I love them? Let me count the ways There are no heroes and heroines in this book only anti heroes and I'll be damned if I didn't love themAdelina As I stare silently back I feel something powerful stir inside me—a buried fire subdued during childhood and long forgotten I have lived all my life in the shadow of my father and my sister Now that I’m standing in the sun for the first time I dare to think differentlyThe broken butterfly has been made whole I love a strong dark bitter angry character who's not afraid to kill and I can only describe Adelina as totally kick ass She has a darkness inside her that I love and she is physically scarred which I also love Adelina is missing an eye She is good looking but the book never makes it overwhelming She has doubts she has fears She is haunted by the ghost of her own guilt I do this because I love you my father’s ghost whispers You may not understand it right now but it is for your own good You are a monster I still love you I will set you right She has worries about her own self worth They are only good to me because they need me Just like Enzo Kindness with strings attached Would they have befriended me if I were worthless? She is not afraid to get revenge Adelina is no pussy ass weakling female character and that is the most important thing I also absolutely love her relationship with her sisterEnzo “I will take back my throne soon” Enzo whispers “And malfettos will no longer live in fear” The man with the plan The Boy Who Would Be King He wants his birthright and he'll go through anything to get it Adelina be damned His romance with heris it a romance? “She is nothing to me” he snaps with a careless gesture of one hand “Nothing than a Dagger recruit Just part of our plans” The ice in his voice hits me hard Nothing A rip appears on my heart Is it love or manipulation? There is only one goal here Enzo may have a noble purposebut he is no saint He can kill with the best of them and don't you dare cross his friend The next morning Inuisitors find Count Maurizio Saldana’s dismembered body nailed to his front door his mouth suspended in a scream his corpse burned black beyond recognition Teren He kneels on the floor Lifts the whip Holds his breath Then he snaps the whip over his head The blades rake deep into the flesh of his back ripping jagged lines across his skin He lets out a strangled gasp as pain floods him robbing him of his breath I am a deformed creature he mouths silently repeating the words he once said as a twelve year old boy an Inuisitorin training kneeling before the sixteen year old Princess Giulietta Mad obsessive worshipful love Teren is alternately a pitiful and terrifying creature He has been in love with beautiful young ueen all his life he is utterly devoted to her He will do anything for her including find and destroy Adelina Amouteru using any tactic possible however dirty “You have three days” he says in a low voice “If you go back on your word again I will shoot an arrow through your sister’s neck and out the back of her skull She’ll be lucky if that’s the first thing I do” He smiles his teeth flashing in the night Talk about evil Talk about madness for love Talk about a low sense of self worth Enzo the evil guard is the villain of this book if it has one He is so filled with self loathingRafaelle Probably my favorite character to be honest How rare is it that one finds a beautiful amale character in a platonic true friendship with a female character And beautiful he is Daaaaaamn son His hair black and shining drapes across one of his shoulders in a loose silken braid His olive skin is smooth flawless glowing The faint musk of night lilies envelops him in a veil intoxicating promising something forbidden I like him because he's pretty I like him because he is a male courtesan I like him because he wants a better life and he has a kind gentle heart Beautiful boyThis book Can I get a FUCK YEAH?

    Want to know what happens when Marie Lu does darker and sexier? Then read this book Contrary to what I first believed this book is not dystopian or post apocalyptic but is actually a dark fantasy set in a bleak world full of magic complex villains and princes looking to reclaim their throne And it's damn goodAdelina Amouteru is a survivor of a blood fever that swept through her nation when she was a child The fever left only a few survivors and those survivors remained permanently scarred with strange markings on their bodies But some of them were left with something else strange abilities that made them powerful dangerous and feared These people are called The Young Elites Adelina discovers her own uniue abilities in unfortunate circumstances and is propelled into a world where everyone it seems is an enemyI absolutely loved Adelina “I am Adelina Amouteru I belong to no one On this night I swear to you that I will rise above everything you’ve ever taught me I will become a force that this world has never known I will come into such power that none will dare hurt me again”She's spent her whole life being abused by her father feeling unloved and worthless And she has a complex relationship with her sister while she loves her dearly she's always been jealous of the way their father was affectionate towards her Her life moves from one hurdle to the next; when she finally unleashes the power she needs to stand up to her father this makes her an enemy of societyEnter the Young ElitesThere are so many fascinating characters in this novel Obviously readers will love the extremely sexy but not sexually graphic scenes between Adelina and Enzo the leader of the Elites but there are many other interesting dynamics going on I especially loved the relationship between Adeline and Raffaele; it's so rare to see a platonic relationship between a young male and female told well particularly when the guy is described as beautifulBut I think the thing I like best about this book is how no one is simply good or bad everything is much complicated and interesting than that Adelina is allowed to have her own dark twisted thoughts She's not a hero She's broken selfish and even a little wicked at times “In spite of everything I feel a strange sense of gleeAll this chaos is of my own creation”And every few chapters the evil Teren is given his own perspective for several pages that gives us insight into why he behaves the way he does I never liked him of course but I did feel a strange sense of sympathy for him Aren't complex villains just one of the best things ever?So Adelina gets caught between two powerful groups of people who could each make her life hell simply take it away from her or hurt the sister she loves She must learn fast keep secrets and trust no one it's a wild breathless journey that had me thanking the god of literature that this is going to be a series I can't wait to see what happens next “Everyone has darkness inside them however hidden”Blog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Youtube

    I grew to enjoy this book At first I was hesitant but the darkness of the characters eventually sucked me in and I will definitely be reading book 2 Here's my full reviewdiscussionbooktalk

    i love marie lu so i had no idea i could love her than i already did but i honestly think this is my favourite book and potentially series she has written its dark twisted powerful and it surprised me in so many ways her other two series have either a sci fi or dystopian feel to them with both taking place in the future so assumed this would be similar imagine my intrigue when i realised the story takes place in renaissance italy? i am totally on board with that i just wish there was world building its pretty basic with only short references to the blood fever here and there i really wanted exploration within the setting because i find it so interesting but even though the world building is a little weak the character development is amazing everyone is just so complex its refreshing to read about characters with so much depth to them and gahhh im so in love with enzo 3 also i will say that i dont uite like adelina i just cant uite connect with her but i think thats why im so excited to see how her character develops my lack of attachment makes it easy for me to be okay with the direction her story arc is taking its going to be so much fun to watch her take down everything and everyone in her way i really hope the story gets much darker in the next books because i am ready for a bloodbath of revenge so bring it on↠ 45 stars

    This was disappointing?It feels weird writing this negative review when everyone I know is absolutely raving about it It makes me feel like maybe I missed something I even debated rounding up the rating or letting go of some of my issues with the novel but that would just wouldn't be me So here's the honestyI went into this book with the highest of all the hopes I finished it feeling entirely unfulfilled First let me say that this was a very interesting book to read after reading Vicious by VE Schwab In both books everyone has their own morally ambiguous motives and everyone is determined to achieve their sometimes destructive goals Just like Vicious this book follows the lives of characters that have gained natural powers through sickness and death Some see their characters as holy some see them as things that must be destroyed There are characters in both books that fill the same positions For example in both there is a man hunting down the protagonists in hopes to kill them all This man does this because he believes it is the will of God This man Eli in Vicious and Teren in TYE even has the same power in both books There are a lot of other minor similarities that I'm not going to go into because despite what they had in common I consider these to be very different books It's just that unfortunately having read them back to back probably caused me to not enjoy this one uite as much At least that's the excuse I'm giving this bookMy main issue with this novel was that I simply didn't care all that much about it I didn't care much for the characters which all blended in my mind after a while I didn't care for the plot which stalled in the middle and made the pacing feel off I didn't care for the world building which was just a renaissance painting world with superpowers I just didn't care I would put this book down and forget to pick it back up I wouldn't feel any desire to truly get back into it I felt pretty meh about the whole reading experienceI feel like I wanted than I got I wanted because I expected That said I really liked the end and not because it was over I liked it because it was everything I had expected the entire novel to be In the end despite my disappointment I am actually looking forward to the seuel

    Adelina definitely surprised me She's such a strong heroine The kind we just love to have in our fantasy reads It’s pretty crazy to say how easily she and I clicked Turns out even though I don’t believe myself to enjoy or sometimes want to hurt people we have many things in common such as fighting for what is dear to us family and always trying our bestEnzo is the love interest of Adelina He is the rightful heir to the throne but was banned since he is a malfetto and malfettos are feared and even in some other places killed Just because they’re different from others They may not be ‘evil’ but to the eyes of others they very likely are since they are usually flawed and have uniue powers Enzo is the head of the Young Elites which is a secret sect of malfettos who are organizingsomething big They want to make of Enzo the ruler of the Kingdom Which is fantastic I think it to be a great ideaexcept that there wasn’t much they actually did to achieve their goalIn fact there wasn’t that much happening in the story It mostly revolves around Adelina who became a spy in order to free her sister Violetta from the hands of Teren someone who despises malfettos I do understand why Adelina decided to agree to Teren’s terms for the freedom of her dear sister but I think the whole concept and situation was too simple in a way There was a lot lot lot of potential but it feels to me like the author somehow decided to take the easiest path because of how she ‘handled’ everything that happened No scenes that will blow your mindOther than that I did enjoy this really I wasn’t that disappointed since I did not have very high expectations being one of the few who were not mesmerized by the ‘awesomeness’ as many say of the Legend trilogy I enjoyed it same as this one but nothing There was almost no romance A little but this is definitely not driven by romance When it was present though I was hooked and hold my breath at how captivating it was But like I said there’s isn’t much of it What a shameThe writing was good and pleasant enough to read I did think that the world building wasn’t as developed as there was possibility to be though The author did a great job at creating unforgettable characters but in my opinion she kind of neglected the world building There is some of it of course but you can see how the characters are important compared to itWhen I think about how the author switched from dystopian with Legend to fantasy with this I think she overall proved that she can create a story whatever the genre will be And that’s fantastic Bravo to her Would love to see if she pulls contemporary off I think she couldI would recommend this to fantasy fans out there Be warned though it is very different from her well known trilogy You may see similarities to characters but other than that it’s completely different It was a good read some scenes were dragging here and there or having too much of Adelina’s internal struggles but it was engaging enough and the magic interestingPS Am I the only one who thinks the cover is a littlecheap? Giving the impression that the design as a whole is only half finished? What are your thoughts on it?Sources First art Second art

    ”His words remind me of the strange whispers that have accompanied my illusions – something dark and vengeful tempting and powerful A weight presses on my chest I am afraid Intrigued”As it seems 2018 is not only the year in which I’ll finally finish a few series I’ve been reading for years but also the year in which I hand out my v card to new authors I’ve never read before lolLast week it was Holly Black’s “The Darkest Part of the Forest” this week its Marie Lu’s “The Young Elites” and after reading both books I can say that I regret nothing XD I really liked this book yet to write a decent review somehow seems to be so very difficult I don’t know why I feel this way but I think it might be the same problem I had with Maas’s “Throne of Glass” You just feel that it’s a debut novel and there were some flaws that make it kind of hard to write an elaborate review Does that even make sense? No? For me neither lolI guess what I’m trying to say is that I loved the characters They were so grey and complex and I would have loved to dive a little deeper into their thoughts But unfortunately Adelina’s POV was the only one that actually ran like a golden thread through the story Sure we got a little glimpse at Enzo’s Teren’s and Raffaele’s POV as well but overall I really would have enjoyed to read a little of them I think in some way those brief and few chapters only made me even curious about them and left me kind of unsatisfied which is actually sad because there was so much potential in those characters XD I really hope Marie Lu tackles that in the second book and gives us insight into their lives and backstories ”Something blackens your heart something deep and bitter It has festered inside you for years nurtured and encouraged I’ve never felt anything like it”I think another thing I missed and which wasn’t all too clearly portrayed was the world in which they live I mean yes we are informed that there are Malfettos and Elites and at the beginning of the book we even have a map when it came down to describing their environment I could never really grasp the idea though The picture of the Fortunata Court is still vague in my head and I’m afraid it will only get even vaguer the time passes after finishing the book lol That’s just my subtle opinion though so don’t let that keep you from reading “The Young Elites” because I’m sure it will get better with every book that’s following ; ”I will be whispered about I will have enemies lurking in every shadow Let them talk Let their fear of me grow I welcome it”Well and last but not least I have to point out the romance and diversity LOL We don’t only have people of every skin colour and with obvious flaws or different appearances but we also seem to have a nice LGBT representation Which of course was enough to make yours truly a than just happy woman 333 Haha And speaking of which Is it just me or does anyone else ship Enzo and Raffaele? I mean I know we’re obviously supposed to ship Adelina and Enzo but I really didn’t feel anything between them Not at all Their scenes seemed to be so forced and if anything their ambitions seemed to be the main reason they were so drawn to each other Enzo and Raffaele on the other hand? Gosh you could feel their chemistry in every single line They had about two moments but boy were they intense than the ones with Adelina LOL There was not even the slightest hint at a romance between those two boys but for me they somehow worked better than the official love interest? I guess that’s again something that doesn’t make sense but it is the way it is XDAlso I think this is the right moment to mention that I absolutely love and adore Raffaele 333 He’s the secret star of the show and I loved the dynamics between him and the other characters Especially Adelina and Enzo of course ; P I really hope to see even of him in the next book and hopefully his POV will be represented again as well Did I miss anything? Yes Teren I hate him strongly deeply intenselylol But he’s an awesome villain and I can’t wait to see what happened to him that changed him so profoundly I’m sure there’s so much than initially meets the eye and I can’t wait to read about his past I already know this is going to be than just interesting ”The rush of darkness through me is intoxicating and irresistible and I find myself embracing it letting it cover my insides like ink Such power over these little masses I love it”The bottom lineI loved to read “The Young Elites” and I can’t wait to read “The Rose Society” Especially because the prologue was so freaking intriguing That was a nice move Marie Lu to introduce new characters at the end of the book ; P AND I’m really curious about view spoilerMaeve and Lucent Is there really going to be some ff action in the second book because if yes I ALREADY SHIP IT 333 hide spoiler

    Still waiting for a hyped ya series that won't disappoint meI seriously don't get why people say the protagonist is an anti hero She literally is a typical ya fantasy protagonist that tries too hard to be dark and twisted It's hella annoyingThe other characters were pretty boring and I can't even remember their names lol There wasn't much backstory to any of them except for the main character I hope there will be in the second third book The plot itself wasn't very original there just wasn't anything new about it Additionally I can't get into details because of spoilers but there was a plot point which I generally dislike a lot That's not necessarily a bad thing about the book only a personal preference This still gets 2 because I really enjoyed the writing style The descriptions of the town the clothes the illusions etc were very detailed without being boring It was really easy to picture the scenes inside of my head Probs to Marie Lu

    Edit 0323 There's no denying that I was disappointed in The Young Elites but I thought I'd point that I absolutely loved The Rose Society its seuel So you know fellow minority readers I hope it will be the same for you^^► My review of book 2 The Rose Society ★★★★★ ORIGINAL REVIEW Hey YOU BOOK You pretended to be right up my alley You said I will love you You said you were dark and captivating The truth is after getting off to a flying start the tension loosened and making the next 300 pages a real core to read for me When I first met Adelina I was ecstatic because of the darkness that seemed to lie in her heart she appeared to be the kind of morally ambiguous character I could root for Too bad the whole book turned out to be completely anticlimactic I WAS BORED ✘ I don't like Mari Lu's writing I wouldn't be able to point what was wrong exactly but I kept feeling that something wasn't uite right with it Frankly I think that the present tense throws me off guard And her sentences seemed weird to me sometimes bugging me so much that I had to reread them It didn't flow smoothly Not in my opinion anyway✘ Let's forget the fact that there's barely any world building except a re creation of the Renaissance Italy with the black plague as an explication to the Young Elites new powers Frankly I'm okay with authors using real settings to create their fantasy world take Mark Lawrence for example whose Broken Empire is nothing than Europe after an atomic war However if Mark Lawrence plays with this real background letting the reader know where his inspiration lies Mari Lu merely uses entire settings without never acknowledging what she borrowed Changing names isn't enough Is it high fantasy? No It's alternate history with fantastic elements ✘ The pacing was uneven a big fail after a strong beginning which put my feelings all over the place nothing really happens during several chapters until we start a new cycle again an amazing scene and then boring pages during which I don't really know what to think Like the consort pages What's the point? While I desperately wanted to feel something to feel captivated I was drowned in descriptions of clothes and other useless details For real how many times do I have to read the word velvet? Huh? Take Gabriele I meant Raphaele and yes I can confuse a character's name AND having read the book Please Don't be ridiculous for example I don't need to know everything he's wearing every day Call me shallow but I don't care✘ This book is putdownable Is that a thing? apparently no but I'll make it a thing because I can Indeed I kept feeling distracted during my read and before I could think about it I was doing something else entirely laundry watching TV just name it As far as my investment in the story is concerned it's a big huge fail for me✘ But my biggest disappointment is Adelina I expected dark I expected complex That's absolutely not what I got Let's get this straight I love antiheroes I have no problem to adore characters who are complete little shit and who embrace evil as a living I crave them for crying out loud because good haha antiheroes are rare and complicated to create how to make the readers root for a character whose actions disgust and disturb them? I have no clue but when it's well done it's amazing Adelina wasn't uite like that She is NOT an antihero but spends her time whining about events that aren't even her fault Okay okaaaay she thinks about killing people and keeps telling us that there's a darkness inside her but frankly? BRING IT GIRL Stop whining and show me that there's to you than your internal confusion I was ready to accept EVERYTHING from her jealousy selfishness murder instincts betrayal everything What I got is a lot of TELLING but not near enough SHOWING to make me care about her I didn't And you know what happens when I don't care about the characters?It becomes a core to finish ✘ I didn't feel anything towards Enzo as well except during his first apparition what? I'm an Assassin's Creed whore and my eyes sparkle at the mention of daggers don't mind me ✘ To be frank during most of the book I got the impression that the characters were wandering to go somewhere I think It lacked directions and the plot was almost non existent except for the betrayal trope I see in every Fantasy YA book I read these days Look it was a trope I used to love and I still do when it's executed properly when it's than an easy way to bring angst in a story Sadly in my opinion it belonged to the second category I simply COULDN'T FEEL Adelina's struggles Oh she tells us Well she tells us a lot of things But to me neither Teren nor Violetta felt like real characters therefore I was never moved by this situation Heavy sigh✔ The ending though? It was good It was everything I wanted from the book It came too late How am I supposed to savor epic scenes if I haven't given a fuck about the characters for pages and pages? Why using most of the book as a set up for a shocking ending? It feels just cheap to me A genuinely great ending won't make me forget that I was bored to death during 300 pages Nope SorryThis book didn't uite give me what it was telling me For of my reviews please visit
