The Young Elites by Marie Lu
What’s It About?
When a fever struck the world, children that survived it were left with marks that labeled them as different. And then the powers began to manifest. Children could make flames appear on their skin, harness the power of the wind, even see in the dark.
They became known as the Young Elites.
Adelina Amouteru has known fear and hatred all her life. Raised by a violent, abusive father who favored her sister, there has never been kindness unattached. When her powers finally manifested, she catches the attention of the Daggers, a group whose goal it is to seek out Young Elites.
Why Did I Like It?
Holy shit this book is DARK.
This is basically a villain story and it’s so good?????? I really loved Adelina as a character and I’m so excited to see where this goes. I am also super here for the storyline: give me all the teenagers with special powers stories.
I’ve only read the first one (the third one isn’t even released yet) but I REALLY liked it. So, so far, yes.
