It’s no secret that I love Marie Lu. Her debut Legend trilogy, was amazing, and the first book in the Young Elites series blew Legend out of the water. It was, admittedly, a very hard act to follow. But, per usual, Marie Lu somehow managed to do it, with the second book in her dark-fantasy series, The Rose Society .
As you may know, The Young Elites left off on quite a cliffhanger with Adelina and Violetta on the run from, well, everyone. The Rose Society starts off almost immediately after, where Adelina and Violetta are searching Merroutas, the city-state between Kenettra and the Tamouran Empire, for another rumored elite, Magiano. I can’t really tell you more than that, but let me assure you, this sequel is one not to be missed. Adelina Amoutero is a (anti)heroine you won’t want to miss out on. And if she’s not your thing- there are four other character perspectives to fall in love with!
Lu’s character development combined with her intricate plot lines make The Rose Society a must read for any fantasy fan.
