The Young Elites By Marie Lu Book Review

logo

Hey It’s Jamari from ReadGeek3 here with book review to kick off GEEKMAS. Today I will be reviewing The Young Elites by Marie Lu. If you’ve heard of Marie Lu you’ve hard of her amazing series LEGEND. After reading that series I dove into this book almost knowing nothing about the plot until I bought it because I was just that big of a fan.

This book takes place in 1361 and people have been infected with a disease they call the blood fever which are also known as Malfettos. The main character Adelinea is a survivor of the blood fever and lost her eye as a mark from the fever. Since he mom dies from the fever her father treats her differently from her sister and believes she is a Malfetto. Which are survivors of the blood fever who gain special powers. Though all her life while her father was trying to reveal her powers she was blind to understand why.

This book begins quick and heads straight into action inside Adelinea’s prison cell about to be executed. Though the execution fails when Enzo, a member of the dagger society which train the powers of malfettos, rescues her and takes her to their head quarter where she finds out she is a Young Elite and begins training to control her powers. Though had for her since darkness in side her keeps overpowering her, her life is soon on the line if she wants to be a member of the dagger society.

The story is completely interesting and soon develops a small love story between Adelinea and Enzo. The ending of the story twists and surprises you which I enjoyed from most of Marie’s novels. This is book 1 of 3 in The Young Elites Trilogy which the rest are yet to be released.
