“Someday, when I am nothing but dust and wind, what tale will they tell about me?

Once upon a time, a girl had a father, a prince, a society of friends. Then they betrayed her, and she destroyed them all.”

This quote best describes the first two books of the Young Elites triloy and I’m gonna write a semi-informal and short review for it. Much like a blurb. 

The Rose Society is a story that clears and divides. With its reasons for compelling plot and character complications, I can’t help but root for someone I believe should be appreciated more. It’s heartbreaking because pain is inevitable. May it be because of Magiano, Teren, Enzo, Gemma, Raffaele, Maeve, Violetta, Sergio or Adelina, regardless of their triumph or failure it is still saddening because every one has to feel pain. 

Our girl, our little wolf, mi Adelinitta. You are a wreck of a character but I still love you. 

To Marie Lu, thank you for letting me believe in the power of dystopian fantasy once again. I can’t remember when was the last time I’ve read such genre.
