Week 48 Review: The Midnight Star

From Goodreads:
The thrilling finale to the New York Times bestselling Young Elites series from "hit factory" Marie Lu.

There was once a time when darkness shrouded the world, and the darkness had a queen.

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.

Adelina's forced to revisit old wounds when a new danger appears, putting not only Adelina at risk, but every Elite and the very world they live in. In order to save herself and 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.

Bestselling author Marie Lu concludes Adelina's story with this haunting and hypnotizing final installment to the Young Elites series. 

My Review:
Oh, wow, this was an excellent end to this series! I'm kinda glad that I read the series this way, waiting so long to read The Rose Society, because that meant that I could read this one right away, and keeping the details of the world and characters fresh! Yeah, that was really great for me!

This book picks up about a year after the ending of The Rose Society, and Adelina is about in the same place as she was in the ending, and it's not a good one! She's made the lives of others like her better, but at the cost of regular people. Yeah.

And then the idea that the Young Elite's power comes from the gods-but they are in mortal bodies, and the power is going to kill them, becomes a reality. And a harsh one at that! But it brought the Daggers and the Roses together, so that was great!

It was a bittersweet ending, what with having to give up their powers to fix the hole between the mortal realm and the immortal realm that is poisoning everything and killing them. Yeah. Oh, and the deal that Adelina made for her life for her sister's! And oh, the last two pages! Loved it!

This book was absolutely fantastic, and a wonderful ending to the series, and I can't wait to read what Marie Lu writes next!
