The Young Elites is set in a post-apocalyptic world, its dark, filled with strange magic, complex villains, and secret societies. The story revolves around the after-effects of a plaque called the blood fever that killed everyone but children gifting them with scars or marks, and very rarely unusual powers. Though unfortunately for Adelina Amouteru her father and the cruel society she lives in sees her as diseased, "a malfetto" bringing shame to her family's name. Unlike other YA books "The Young Elites" the main protagonist is a villain in her own developing, though she seems oblivious to the fact. This book's thrilling plot will envelop you into their complex worlds in a way that will leave you breathless, that I can promise!
