Bestselling author and New York Times proclaimed "hit factory" Marie Lu delivers another heart-pounding adventure in this exhilarating sequel to The Young Elites.
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?

Praise for The Rose Society--A New York Times bestseller!
"Are you a fan of, say, “X-Men” or “Star Wars” (a.k.a. are you HUMAN)? . . . Marie Lu’s upcoming “The Rose Society,” and its main character is basically a female Magneto crossed with Darth Vader. Also, she’s a teenager. I know — pretty badass."--MTV.com
"A tightly woven tapestry of a story that ensnares even as it disturbs."—Booklist, starred review
"Lu constructs a fascinating triangle of opposing forces seeking power, and the ensuing twists and epic battles leave many dead, broken, or forever changed."—Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Original and sobering, Adelina is an antihero of nigh-unremitting darkness: an unusual young woman in the mold of such archetypes as Lucifer, Macbeth, and Darth Vader."—Kirkus Reviews
"Teens will be fascinated to watch the main character descend into villainy and revel in it."—School Library Journal
Stork’s On the Hook is a superbly crafted contemporary drama with intense situations, violent confrontations and believable reticence to act that spin Hector, our HS sophomore chess wiz protagonist, into an almost debilitating lust for revenge after tragedy strikes , then throws the story into an unexpected plot twist. A simple, but weighty question - “Do you have anyone you don’t want to disappoint?” stirs the dynamic “balance” and upends the tension as the heart-pounding climax races to a satisfying end. Give this stunner to fans of Angie Thomas, Jason Reynolds and Matt Mendez. - Reviewed by Maureen
