I am tired of being used, hurt, and cast aside.

Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever. A decade ago, the deadly illness swept through her nation. Most of the infected perished, while many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. Adelina’s black hair turned silver, her lashes went pale, and now she has only a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Her cruel father believes she is a malfetto, an abomination, ruining their family’s good name and standing in the way of their fortune. But some of the fever’s survivors are rumored to possess more than just scars—they are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites.

Teren Santoro works for the king. As Leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before they destroy the nation. He believes the Young Elites to be dangerous and vengeful, but it’s Teren who may possess the darkest secret of all.

Enzo Valenciano is a member of the Dagger Society. This secret sect of Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they’ve never seen.

Adelina wants to believe Enzo is on her side, and that Teren is the true enemy. But the lives of these three will collide in unexpected ways, as each fights a very different and personal battle. But of one thing they are all certain: Adelina has abilities that shouldn’t belong in this world. A vengeful blackness in her heart. And a desire to destroy all who dare to cross her.

It is my turn to use. My turn to hurt.

Why am I waiting?

I have only read "Legend" and started "Prodigy" by Marie Lu but I absolutely loved it. She definitely has a talent to write aweosme and thrilling books that keep my interest, so I have no doubt that this will be any different. The blurb sounds great and like something I would totally enjoy. The cover is gorgeous and promises epic battles and lots of problems that need to be solved. At least I hope so!


  1. I can't wait for this book!! I hope you enjoy it!
    Here's my WoW:

    1. I hope so too! Although it will probably take a while till i can read it ... I have too many unread books that I need to finish first, ugh. :D

  2. I wasn't a big fan of her Legend book but my sister loved them. As soon as I saw this book on goodreads I recommended it to her. Who knows, maybe if she really likes it I might give it a try too. Sounds like an interesting book :)

  3. I can't wait to check this one out. But, more importantly, WOW: your blog is BEAUTIFUL! LOVE love LOVE it, Yvonne!

    1. Oh, haha. Thank you so much for stopping by! I'm glad you like it :D

      I just finished "Team Indie" on the YA Scavenger Hunt and immediately added your books to my TBR list! They all sounds super interesting! :)
