If you haven’t read The Young Elites, this review may contain spoilers related to the original story.
How can you be good when everything within you is dragging you into darkness??
After losing Enzo and being rejected by the Dagger Society, Adelina is on a path of vengeance and violence. Her powers are fueled by hate and fear, and they’re growing beyond her ability to control. She has found a new group of Elites, but she has difficulty trusting them, and she is constantly doubting who she is and questioning her own decisions. She is now known as the White Wolf, a symbol of power, violence, and death.
This book is even better than the first. As the reader watches Adelina’s descent into darkness, we feel for her and in a way even understand the decisions she makes. She has spent most of her life living in fear; who can blame her for wanting to feel powerful and safe. This doesn’t take away from the horror of her actions; she is no hero.The real question is, will Adelina ever find happiness or even recognize it if she does.
A great addition to the trilogy. On to book 3: The Midnight Star
