Looking Ahead: The Rose Society by Marie Lu

I fell in love with The Young Elites by Marie Lu last fall and I am amped about the sequel, The Rose Society. I enjoy reading a good dark fantasy and this one is super intriguing. The series has a bit of sci-fi and wonderful world building. It is chock full of action, adventure, betrayal and love. The Rose Society is the second book in The Young Elites trilogy and will be available from retailers on October 13, 2015 by G.P. Putnam's Sons Books for Young Readers.

Synopsis (from Goodreads):

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?

Lu received a lovely finished copy yesterday. Take a look below at her wonderful display for her new novel!
