The Third book in The Young Elites series by Marie Lu
Synopsis: 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 she’s gained. When a new danger appears, Adelina’s forced to revisit old wounds, putting not only herself at risk, but every Elite. In order to 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.
Okay.. these books declined fast, I really liked the first one! the second one was decent for a second book…. so I was expecting this one to be kaboom amazing…but no. Her writing got so sloppy, her plot line fell apart, nothing really happened.
Adelina is still the ‘bad guy’ at the beginning and almost all through this book. Her actions are constantly selfish and just flat out annoying to read. Don’t get me wrong, I can understand some of her actions. She has some mental demons.. I mean, I can relate with that, those unwanted voices sometimes. But still she’s just such a weak willed and unbearably frustrating person.
The background characters were so two-dimensional in this book, I used to like them in the other books but in this one, I wasn’t interested in any of their stories… some came back to life, some characters died without much fanfare, just.. oop, now they’re dead. It was honestly a little painful.
And honestly….Really?… That’s the damn freaking way you end the story? Really? Wow… thanks for that. I love endings without any form of closure or explanations about what the hell just happened or what’s really going to happen in the future, no plans. Cool, thanks.
I should have just stopped reading the series at the second book.
I rate this book
