I absolutely loved Marie Lu's earlier series Legend, Prodigy, and Champion. I was overjoyed to discover she had a new series in the works. The Young Elites is the first book and is just as wonderful. I tore through it and am so excited that there's going to be more! In the Elites a small group of children who survive a blood plague manifest unusual powers as they grow into teens. People fear them, and the government is trying to kill them. Sixteen year old Adelina must navigate this treacherous landscape while discovering the alarming and exhilarating power within her. Marie Lu will be coming to our store on October 19th to read from a talk about the second Young Elite book The Rose Society. I'm excited to see where the next installment leads and to meet one of my very favorite authors!
