Review of The Young Elites by Marie Lu

My rating : 4 stars

 My review
Absolutely loved this book. the characters were great, the plot was good.
Main Character-Adelina was a very different female protagonist because she was an anti-hero and i loved that she had this darkness in her that she accepts it instead of denying it like most ya female characters do. Her thoughts, emotions, and motives were clear from the beginning although i don't agree with some of her choices that she made, i understand why she did it at the time.
Plot/Writing- the plot was good although i feel that the whole spy thing has been done in many books, being a mole in the group and then coming clean about it.
Supporting Characters: the supporting characters in the Dagger Society were good , i just felt that i didn't really get a sense of who they were. i liked Raffaele and Gemma the most although, there were times where i didn't really trust Raffaele because i couldn't understand what his real intentions were.
"Love" Interest- throughout the book,Enzo is a character that is the leader of the Dagger society however, he is never seen interacting with them or Adelina for that matter. There were only a few interactions between Adelina and him, then all of a sudden they make out twice. i feel that there wasn't enough build up to it, they don't really know each other that well. Plus, he constantly thinks of her as his old lover Daphne, i think they had the same skin color or came from the same land.
Antagonist-Teren is the Anatagonist in the book he had his reasons for doing what he did. his reasons were never clear though because of his secret.
Ending- the ending was great because it set up the next book well along with what may happen with Adelina's journey along with the Dagger Society.
