About the Book

The Rose Society:
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 Marie Lu delivers another heart-pounding adventure in this exhilarating sequel to The Young Elites.

The Young Elites:
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.

Enzo Valenciano is a member of the Dagger Society. This secret sect of Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they’ve never seen.
Adelina wants to believe Enzo is on her side, and that Teren is the true enemy. But the lives of these three will collide in unexpected ways, as each fights a very different and personal battle. But of one thing they are all certain: Adelina has abilities that shouldn’t belong in this world. A vengeful blackness in her heart. And a desire to destroy all who dare to cross her.
It is my turn to use. My turn to hurt.

  5. Alice Wu says:

    This looks SO fantastic! I’ve been wanting to read this series forever! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  6. Alyssa Caayao says:

    The cover for Young Elites is very amazing. It’s kind of dark making me think that it has a post-apocaliptic feel to it, but also making me think that it has fantasy due to the font of the title. The synopsis is very engaging. I have not read this series but I wanted to because of the synopsis. It makes me think that there is definitely more to the story than what it says on the synopsis. As for The Rose Society’s cover, I’m guessing that animals will be a part of this book, if not, it symbolizes the Rose Society. I do not want to read the synopsis of The Rose Society yet, because I might get spoilers for the whole series so far. But reading the synopsis for Young Elites, I think the Rose Society is like the resistance group of the Dagger Society. In this case, I feel like this will be a war story for both societies so I think this is going to be awesome!

  17. Kara S says:

    If I hadn’t heard so many things about special this series is, I don’t think I’d be as motivated to read it as I am now. The cover is beautiful, and the story sounds pretty compelling but this series seems to occupy a crowded niche of YA fiction. Readers and reviewers have convinced me it’s really great…Thanks for this opportunity. Cheers, Kara S

  18. BookFanatic says:

  29. Adelaine Harding says:

    I really love the covers of both books. They really give a forshadow of what adelina is going to be facing in the adventures and trials that she will be experiencing. The snopsis of the books are catching and has me wanting to keep reading so that i can be apart and experience this new world.

  30. robin says:

    Oh Marie Lu, I loved the Legend series so freaking much. Both Day and June were amazing characters. Hearing that this series revolves around a morally grey character made me squeal. I know I love her writing and I love the synopsis. I love books about people with weird but strong powers, SIGN ME UP! The covers are amazing I love the color scheme and I need to know why the wolf is on the second cover!

    I’m okay with the cover — I like it but I don’t love it.
    The synopsis, however, is really good. I want to read The Rose Society very much.
    I have read the Rose Society and it was really good! I want to know exactly how Adelina will take revenge to all those who betrayed her.

  34. Jordan Ketcham says:

    The covers are amazingly wonderful!!! They both look so intense! I cant wait to read this series. I hope it’s just as good as Legend series or better.

  35. Linda Romer says:

    These books sound amazing and the covers are beautiful ♡ Thank you

  36. Victoria says:

    I have to be honest, I am not a fan of the cover. It just doesn’t sit well with me like The Young Elites cover did. But I can’t wait to read both books.I love the idea of a main character who has been through a lot and it is reflected in their physical appearance. Plus there’s special powers 🙂

  37. Gersolmar says:

    The covers are gorgeous! The wolf is beautiful and fierce and the colours are beautiful too! The synopsis left me needing more I need these books in my life!!! I love this kind of post-epidemic book scenarios like The Darkest Minds!! I heard about his books some time ago but I have bought a lout of book recently and sadly I can’t afford buying more books

  38. MOO says:

    I love the covers and the synopses!!!

  39. Cindy says:

    Beautiful cover, and and really eye-catching. Seriously. I went walked past a bookstore the other day, and it was the first book I saw, even though it was on the bottom-most shelf. Wish I could have gotten it, but the bookstore was closed! The next day when I went, all of the copies were gone. ;-; Anyways, the synopsis sounds amazing, as always. Loved the first book, but I got it from the library. Would be nice to own one. Seriously can’t wait until I can read this one.

  40. Kayla C says:

    The cover is gorgeous!! I loved The Young Elites and I’ve been waiting (not so patiently) to get my hands on The Rose Society. Marie is the best!

  41. Catherine Cameron says:

    The Cover really draws you in

  42. Gina Falzo says:

    I love the covers! I also loved the first book and can’t wait to read the second one!

  43. Lisa Grissinger says:

    Loved Lu’s other series, but have not read either of these books! Cover looks amazing and story synopsis sound exciting.

  44. Emily says:

    The cover is so cool, I love the wolf on [i]The Rose Society![/i]! The synposis sounds very unique; it’s rare to find a book told in a villain’s point of view.

  45. Skylee says:

    I love Marie Lu’s writing so much, I can’t wait for these books. The cover is so beautiful, gah.

  46. Autumn says:

    I love the simplicity of the cover. And anything Marie Lu writes is amazing. I’m really into anti heroes/villians so the synopsis is right up my alley.

  47. Both of the covers are magnificent and stunning! I’ve been wanting to read them since a long time ago! I heard the books are really good and am looking forward to reading them soon!

  48. Lillian says:

    The covers are gorgeous!!! The synopis sounds so good!! A girl dealing with her desire to destroy anyone?? Yes please!!! I can’t wait to read this!

  49. I am such a huge fan of Marie Lu. Her writing is amazing! I devoured her Legend series. This is a series that I am super excited to read about!
