The Young Elites - Book Review

image credit
In The Young Elites by Marie Lu, Adelina is a survivor of the blood fever that killed her mother and left Adelina disfigured. Disfigured and unloved by her father and shunned by her community. But Adelina soon learns that her survivor status has bestowed her with special powers and that she's not the only one. A group that some call The Young Elites, made up of other survivors with different powers, takes in Adelina to teach her how to control her power and enlist her help in using that power to take down anyone who wants to rid the country of the Elites.

This book is fast-paced with action, magic, and mystery, plus a strong female heroine. It takes you into a seemingly Italian-inspired new world, but one not so different from our real world filled with hatred and prejudice toward those deemed "different" or "abominations".

This is the first book in a new series, and if it's anything like Marie Lu's previous trilogy, Legend, then the Young Elites series is also going to be good.

The Young Elites is published by G.P. Putnam's Sons and is available to purchase TODAY. I received a free advance review copy for my honest review.
