In The Young Elites, followed by The Rose Society, Adelina Amouteru is a malfetto, part of a generation of children marked by fever. Feared. Hated. And blamed for any and all of the suffering or hardships of the kingdom. Adelina is, in her own way, making discoveries, experiencing first love, and developing her identity. But Adelina is not a cliché. She is fierce, discovering that power is not given, but taken. She’s even being referred to as a villain, the bad girl. Is she a villain? I caution you not to judge too quickly. Adelina defies every label; decimates every box someone tries to put her in. She’ll haunt you long after you finish her story, leaving you anxiously awaiting the next installment

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.
