Title: The Rose Society
   Author: Marie Lu
   Format: Hardcover
   Release Date: October 6th, 2015

     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 that murdered her love, the Crown Prince Enzo Valenciano.

     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?

My Stance:

     The book sounds like a The Dark Knight, and Marie Lu is one of those authors that if she sets her mind to it she can not only just nail a story but set it on fire. I have no doubt this will be one of the best books of the year. So what gets me nervous is the characters insistent need on revenge. It's not your typical novel, and I appreciate how dynamic the story seems. There's enough characters to pull the main character in many different directions. However, Adelina seems bent on one thing and is completely bent on that goal.

     What Adelina doesn't realize that her friends are trying to protect her, maybe not so bent on stopping her. The cast sounds great, and while having not read any of the first book yet, Marie Lu's novels are one you can't ignore. Every character makes an impact, and this has the making for something of the ages. I just hope that Adelina isn't building an army for that same simple-minded goal. There are a lot of good books, this week and I'm not sure which one is the highest on my list.
