The Young Elites (The Young Elites #1) by Marie Lu


Book Summary: 

I am tired of being used, hurt, and cast aside.
Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever. A decade ago, the deadly illness swept through her nation. Most of the infected perished, while many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. Adelina’s black hair turned silver, her lashes went pale, and now she has only a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Her cruel father believes she is a malfetto, an abomination, ruining their family’s good name and standing in the way of their fortune. But some of the fever’s survivors are rumored to possess more than just scars—they are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites.
Teren Santoro works for the king. As Leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before they destroy the nation. He believes the Young Elites to be dangerous and vengeful, but it’s Teren who may possess the darkest secret of all.
Enzo Valenciano is a member of the Dagger Society. This secret sect of Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they’ve never seen.
Adelina wants to believe Enzo is on her side, and that Teren is the true enemy. But the lives of these three will collide in unexpected ways, as each fights a very different and personal battle. But of one thing they are all certain: Adelina has abilities that shouldn’t belong in this world. A vengeful blackness in her heart. And a desire to destroy all who dare to cross her.
It is my turn to use. My turn to hurt.


My Review: 

An blood fever spread throughout the city, the lucky one where alive, marked with powers, they call themselves Malfetto. Those who were unlucky died of the blood fever. Some families love and protect there own but some are not lucky and treated as outcast in their own homes. That is where Adelina begins at home, her whole family strike by the fever but her father. Her and her sister were the lucky ones to live. Adelina had been marked and her eyes missing, while her sister was left alone and not mark. For years she been living under harsh punishments from her father.. Trying hard to get her father love and attention and to grow her powers which never came when growing up.

Now found and on death row for her powers and murder….In the end other young elites, comes to the help her, an man name Reaper leader of other Malfettos, out there calling themselves young elites, hiding and being shelter for years, training to be a part of society again.
