The Rose Society

Author: Marie Lu

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 who nearly killed her.

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?

City of Roses
1) A devastatingly gorgeous town of magic and murder and mayhem and mischief. With a girl descending into madness. She strives to gain revenge and creates a small band of warriors that are loyal to her prospect of money to help her gain her crown.
"I'm stunned. Completely and utterly stunned. Adelina's descent into madness continues, but she's found new allies and new enemies. I loved her returning illusions and their ultimate effect on her. She really goes through a lot during this book. I would react like her. (Or so.) Her reaction is drastic but mildly understandable. The different powers revealed were quite amazing. Magiano and Sergio. I really liked the two of them. Very interesting people and both motivated by money. I wanted to know their backstories. Why did they become who they were? I wanted to know.
"The one thing that stunned me the most was the ending. It was amazing. Emotional and dramatic. It was really intriguing. It showed how far Adelina had fallen."
