Waiting on Wednessday #2

This weeks waiting on Wednesday is The Rose Society by Marie Lu. Even though I wasn't a big fan of her "Legend" series I absolutely loved The Young Elites and cannot wait for its sequel!

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?

Are you impatiently waiting October 13th when The Rose Society is released? Did the first book's cliffhanger kill you as much as it killed me? What other books are you waiting for? Leave a comment and be sure to follow this blog!!!

  4. I definitely recommend it! It made my list of favorite books of 2014. If you have read The Winner's Curse series by Marie Rutkoski I think that you will really enjoy this one!

  5. ahhh I'm so excited for this book too! The Young Elites was one of my favourite reads from last year, it was so dark! I loved Marie Lu's Legend series but this is the complete opposite, you would never guess it was the same author :)

  6. The two series really are complete opposites- I can't understand how some authors can write completely different genres, that would just confuse me :P I need this book so badly though, I need to see what happens to Adelina!!!
