The young elites
This the book that I have been waiting to set my hands on well… only temporarily as it was a library book but I can’t wait for the goodness of this book. And the best part I’m convinced that this book will be awesome.
Particularly due to this quote,
Some hate thinking us outlaws to hang at the gallows
Some fear us, thinking us demons to be burned at the stake
Some worship us thinking us children of the gods
But all know us
That just blew my mind in a good way, and that I have a new series to chase. I have a love hate relationship with this and yet I still love it and would be reading the next book and that ending was just nothing short of explosive and ridiculous yet unexpected. Marie lu really knows how to make me both love a book as well as love-hate its ending yet at the same time anticipating the next book.
Wow, she is one fucked up girl, I actually enjoyed reading her maybe it’s because I’m just about as twisted as her after finishing the book. Well, she grows more at the end, right now, I have a feeling that I would both love and hate Adelina in The Rose Society. Yet I really liked her personal dark thoughts here, she is just one bad girl.
One thing that made her really relatable was the fact that she is missing an eye, with her hair long and silver now that was interesting to read as well as the fact that she was a malfetto which is something regarded as the burden as they are the leftover of a blood fever and survivors and most importantly as Adelina was marked.
No offence, I would have felt tempted to go and kill my father if he resembled Adelina’s father, that man is one word: asshole, that’s all I have. I really sympatised with her, I understood her why she did all that, and her sister wow, that was just amazing, every part of her I sympatised or loved. She maybe bad but I will root for her in the next book where it would be her downward spiral.
Marie Lu really does a good job here at it, I really enjoyed her as the main character, she wasn’t just bad but she was bad because of many reasons. She is broken, both mentally and physically and such. I really enjoyed the last part where she was going darker, I really liked her even more as it is truly time for an anti hero female protagonist to take the lead and later on villain.
She can cast illusions however as Raffaele noted, her power should have awakened earlier as even I thought as much until the part where
