**Sequel to The Young Elites and The Rose Society**
Adelina Amouteru is done with 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 she's gained.
When a new danger appears, Adelina's forced to revisit old wounds, putting not only herself at risk, but every Elite. In order to preserve her empire, Adelina and her Roses must join the Daggers on a perilous quest--though this uneasy alliance may prove to be the real danger.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book a lot. I can't say that it's better than the previous one since I haven't read it in a while, but it's probably one of my favorites.
Not only does Adelina risk her life to go to her dying sister's side, but she also creates an alliance to rid the Elites of their suffering--with the very people she wanted revenge on; who used her. And at the very end of the book, although they achieve their goal without going at each other's throats, her sister dies. And Adelina makes a deal with the gods to trade her life for her sisters' (this part actually made me cry).
My Rating: 4.5 stars
