Book Review: Young Elites by Marie Lu

young elites

After a fever sweeps through the land, children who survived find themselves left with unusual markings… and powers. Adelina Amouteru is one such child, but her powers don’t surface for years, until the night she tries to escape from her abusive father, an escape with disastrous consequences. She is rescued from her execution by the Young Elites, a group of malfettos who have banded together to stop the persecution of “malfettos”. But the darkness in Andelina may be to much even for the Young Elites.

While the story is well written and goes quickly, it ultimately left me cold. I didn’t like any of the characters and was annoyed by the ending. Although there obviously more coming, I won’t be reading it.
