The Midnight Star is the final book in Marie Lu’s The Young Elites trilogy about a girl pushed to the brink, who gives into the darkness inside her, becoming a villain for what she believes are all the right reasons. Read my full review hereCover is linked to Goodreads.

From the Goodreads 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 that she’s achieved.”

  1. I’ve heard such awesome things about this series, I’m sure I’ll be picking it up at some point in the future–just not right now, when I’m drowning in so many other books to read! Still, great choice for this week!

    Thank you so much for sharing! Here’s my Friday 56 if you’re interested in taking a look. No worries or pressure if you’re not, though! Either way, happy book-ing to you in the near future…and happy Friday! ❤

  2. I loved The Young Elites and The Rose Society so I honestly have no idea how I haven’t read this yet. But seeing your teaser reminds me how much I love this series! Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous review! ❤
