The Midnight Star by Marie Lu

The thrilling finale to the New York Times bestselling Young Elites series from “hit factory” Marie Lu.

There was once a time when darkness shrouded the world, and the darkness had a queen.

Adelina Amouteru is done suffering. She’s turned her back on those who have betrayed her and achieved the ultimate revenge: victory. Her reign as the White Wolf has been a triumphant one, but with each conquest her cruelty only grows. The darkness within her has begun to spiral out of control, threatening to destroy all that she’s achieved.

Adelina’s forced to revisit old wounds when a new danger appears, putting not only Adelina at risk, but every Elite and the very world they live in. In order to save herself and preserve her empire, Adelina and her Roses must join the Daggers on a perilous quest—though this uneasy alliance may prove to be the real danger.

Bestselling author Marie Lu concludes Adelina's story with this haunting and hypnotizing final installment to the Young Elites series @goodreads 



I'm not going to lie and say this wasn't a sad book. I also felt like maybe there should have been a little bit more to it. I felt like it was - here you go, some evilness, some prophecies, some deaths, the end.

That being said, I'm sort of glad it didn't drag out like some books. Marie Lu got to the point of all things and brought it to where it was supposed to go. I really want to put a wonderful myth from the book in my review but that will give away too much.

I have loved Adelina through the whole book. Yes, she did evil things, but look at all the evil things that were done to her and her kind. She just couldn't forget them. She also had kindness in her. We see in through out the books here and there and especially in this book. She did one of the most selfless acts of all time.

I have nothing else to say. I'm just sad. But that myth I was talking about, it's the only bright star for me. When you read the book you will know what I mean.
