Publisher's summary

The thrilling finale to the New York Times best-selling 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 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.

Number one New York Times best-selling author Marie Lu concludes Adelina's story with this haunting and hypnotizing final installment to the Young Elites series.

Critic reviews

“Lu pivots from the ‘coming of age via romance’ formula to pry apart the many emotions that pass under the rubric of love...There’s nothing easy here, for Adelina or readers - there are no safe places where the pressures of betrayal, death threats, and rejection aren’t felt.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

"Readers should prepare to be captivated - and to look forward to a continuation of the Young Elites series.” (Booklist, starred review)

“A must for fans of...totally immersive fantasies.” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)
