Review: The Rose Society (The Young Elites, #2) by Marie Lu.

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 flees Kenettra with her sister 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.


“But true rulers are not born. We are made.”

I still remember the day when i first read something written by Marie-i was thrilled to read something new written by an new author.And it was worth it.
Right now,after i’ve read The Rose Society i’m still trying to process everything that happened and i admit that i feel like i want to shout out loud that i can’t believe how everything happened.
Those are the question i asked myself every single time when something happened and i couldn’t understand it.Yikes.

Sometimes i tried –Eh,well,i guess i’m still not used to the idea that Adelina’s life turned upside down in a way that it made me believe that her purpose in this book was to become a villan.I can’t accept that.Not after everything she has been through.I can’t and i won’t accept that.

A lot of things happened and like i said above ,i’m still trying to process everything.And it’s a lot to process.Too many things happened-between Adelina trying to get her revenge and what the Daggers were planning,i got the chance to read about two new Young Elites ,Magiano and Sergio.And i’m trilled to announce the fact that the way Violetta managed to use her powers made me jump up and down.Why?Because i’m glad that after everything,Adelina still had someone beside her,her own blood-her sister.But ,well,i..The end of thise book changes everything.

“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.”

Reading about everyone made me think that maybe a miracle will happen.After all,The Daggers made me believe that Adelina could have a place among them,but after reading everything that happened in this book i don’t know what to believe anymore.

I didn’t like to read about how Adelina had to fight the Daggers,but i guess,it had to happen.Even if that fight distroyed every hope i had for them to be reunited again.
But i’m still shocked about Enzo.Don’t get me wrong,i’m glad and holy hell,i’m honestly happy,but the way everything turned up it wasn’t exactly how i expected.

“We are drawn to stories,” he says in a soft voice, “and every scar carries one.”

The new characters.Mmm.My favorite was Magiano-he was exactly what Adelina needed-hope and light in a time of darkness.I liked him ,even if sometimes i doubted that he wanted to help Adelina,but that doubt vanished when he protected Adelina so many times.
About Sergio i can’t write a lot ,because after all he helped Adelina and Violetta when they needed.And he showed them where his loyality belonged to.

I’m surprised that so many things happened.It was a pleasure to read about how strong Adelina was and how her illusions worked.Even if everything was about revenge,there were moments when i saw Adelina exactly like she was-a sad little girl, fragille and lost,looking for revenge,but what she  was really looking for was  approval.All her life she was rejected and tortured because she was a mallfetto-and now she was determined to show everyone that she was strong enough to stop that.

But life isn’t fair and not everyone gets what they deserve,do they?
