My Thoughts

 

If you haven't tried listening to an audiobook yet, this series is a good place to start.  The audio is so well done, it's hard not to be captivated by it.  As long as you're all right with some darkness.  

 

In this second installment of The Young Elites Series, we see Adelina slowly going over to the Dark Side, you're a part of it, you feel it, every step of the way.   A little Vader like...I feel like I'm starting to understand what motivates her more, and Violetta too.  There is also an interesting development that comes about in this book, it's kind of cool, but I won't give it away.  Also, we get some new Elites in this book…some very interesting ones with crazy kick-ass powers.
