Anything remotely exciting only pops up in the last fifty pages or so and by that point, I'd already stopped giving a damn about anyone. There are antiheroes you inexplicably seem to love and then there are antiheroes you just want to use as your personal punching bags. I'll let you guess which category she falls into. It's like the longer I kept on reading, the more I ceased to care. Which is why it ended up taking three whole painstaking months to finally get this jig over with.

Despite all the shit that happens along the way, the fault lies not within the story, not at all. Truth be told, this is almost exactly the way I'd have ended it myself! But none of that matters when the execution isn't done right.

You can use all the right ingredients and mix it as you like, but only a good chef knows how to spice it up and present a dish that makes you go W O W. View all 4 comments. I'm not going to lie and say this wasn't a sad book. I also felt like maybe there should have been a little bit more to it. I felt like it was - here you go, some evilness, some prophecies, some deaths, the end. That being said, I'm sort of glad it didn't drag out like some books. Marie Lu got to the point of all things and brought it to where it was supposed to go. I really want to put a wonderful myth from the book in my review but that will give away too much.

Yes, she did evil things, but look at all the evil things that were done to her and her kind. She just couldn't forget them. She also had kindness in her. We see in through out the books here and there and especially in this book. She did one of the most selfless acts of all time. I have nothing else to say. But that myth I was talking about, it's the only bright star for me. When you read the book you will know what I mean.

I'm a bit conflicted, yet satisfied. I think I expected more , possibly from the whole series. My initial expectations and desires, to read a villain's tale, one filled with cunning and cleverness and ruthlessness, did somewhat materialize but combined with a dose of madness that partially stripped the beauty of the concept.

I'm not gonna lie -- in terms of plot, this finale was not grand. It seemed to drag and when the novel is quite short, you have a double problem. Sometimes I turned reading this into a chore, because I knew if I put it on indefinite hold, I'll never finish it. The end of The Young Elites journey is bittersweet. My heart broke yet again as certain characters followed their predictable destinies and I appreciated the lovely, heartwarming conjuring of new and past relationships, be it amorous or platonic.

Originality and myth is etched into the last pages and I'm pleasantly surprised by the outcome. Good-bye, Roses and Daggers. View all 13 comments. I think Marie Lu is great at endings, she leaves them open-ended enough you can add to the world in your head beyond the story, but closed enough you have closure and aren't wondering what happened to all the characters.

So I definitely appreciated the ending of this series, it wrapped up most of the story and the characters well, but my main disappointment is that I felt some characters stories were left a little hanging and the storyline took a weird direction which I didn't feel was foreshadowed enough. One of my first issues with this book was that the ending took a little turn towards a plot direction that seemed out of place to me.

While the first two books focussed on the characters, and especially Adelina's quest for power, the third introduced a complication and fantasy element that wasn't explored much until this book. While it was foreshadowed a tiny bit at the end of The Rose Society, I still felt a little thrown off when this element came into play - and plot wise it did feel a little messy. It's easy to recover from, and it's not like it's so totally wild it ruined the story, but I did think it threw things off a little.

My other complaint was that I was a little dissatisfied with some of the charaters storylines - specifically Enzo's and Raffaele's and Mauve and Lucents. Raffaele and Enzo just deserved more closure and I wanted more about what happened to Raffaele after - and Mauve and Lucent weren't in it enough. The characters remained as diabolical and twisted as they were earlier in the series - Adelina's arc came to a conclusion in a way I was really satisfied with, and I also really liked the addition of Magiano and his role in this book.

I've always praised this book for it's ambiguous characters and morally grey situations and that trend definitely continues throughout this series. Characters make decisions and change their behaviours and it's definitely open to discussion as to who deserved their ending, who didn't and who is truly good or evil. I love that about this series, and I love that Marie Lu didn't give us definitive answers.

The beautify of this series is it's ambiguity and how open-ended it is. I'm so glad Marie Lu maintained that to the end. The ending of this book is very controversial, but I personally was okay with it and it left me satisfied. This entire series I hold so close to my heart, and I wish less people dnf'ed it right at the start before it really gets good. This series is full of flawed, complex characters who aren't all trying to make the right decision.

It subverts so many tropes and presents us with characters who are motivated by greed, anger, hate, jealousy and fear, but also love and want and a sharp desire for justice. Truly, I think this is one of the most original series in ya, with characters who don't fit into the typical YA tropes but exist for their own benefit and act in a way that purely is to satisfy their own needs. On top of that it has amazing representation, worldbuiding and plot which never got boring for me. I know I am literally the LAST person to read this series, but if you still haven't you definitely should.

It's one of my favourite series now and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. Jan 07, P rated it really liked it Shelves: The ending is purely beautiful and inspirational. I loved Magiano, Adelina and Sergio, these characters are virile and push the story forward efficiently that I can't see how this book can be this good without them. Marie Lu managed to link the myth of Gods and Goddesses with the superpowers of the Elites very well, power always comes with a prize and it must be paid sooner or later.

This was all the feels before I started reading The Midnight Stars. My heart was full of darkness. I wanted to see Adelina exact her revenge and claim what she wanted, but at some point, I felt it overwhelmed me, the darkness was so thick and crushed my lungs until it was hard to breath.

There're many unnecessary fillers made me question the things that happened in this book without foreshadowing, too, and this is why The Midnight Star is my least favorite of all. She gets what she wants, yet she always wants more. I had a hunch then that this was going to be her downfall, and I've never guessed wrong. Adelina is beyond redemption as Raffaele tells Violetta.

Her heart is so rotten, and I didn't understand why Magiano was still beside her. Perhaps he loves her? But there's something between their relationship making me speculate that Magiano is the only one who loves Adeliana, but on the other hand she fool herself heavily that she loves him. Despite the fact that she's just lonely and wants somone to hold on to, in my opinion, her love for Magiano is not real.

As for Terren, his obsession for his queen is deep and struck me in my chest for what he's done for human racial purity. I get attached to his charcter more than the others, even Enzo, his dark side is palpable and captured my attention entirely. Magiano, I loved his playful side, and the way he soothes Adelina broke my heart.

His development slowly proceeds, which showed me that I didn't ship the wrong guy. He bends down to kiss her. Then he helps her onto the horse, and she rides away with him to a faraway place, until they can no longer be seen. Her character is a conflict to her sister's wicked mind. While Adelina wants to find her sister among the war she wages, she still blames her for what happened in the last book. This confused me sometimes, yet I could understand why she was like this. But I still enjoyed it. It's a perfect ending to this unputdownable series.

Vojsk rated it it was amazing. What will you do, when you face yourself? But one city is not enough. Slowly she conquers other cities, other countries. Soon she rules with fear and darkness. As the war between the two groups go on something dark settles around the world. Taking something from the Underworld has its price and now the Young Elite sees the world pay its depth.

This book was so filled with action, love, revenge, betrayal and darkness. We see enemies and allies, and we see them change their positions. This was a perfect ending for the trilogy. I even cried in the end.

Product description

And I never cry. Marie Lu did a great work creating her. The voices in her head, the illusions, the darkness - all of them are slowly trying to take over control. Conquering all those countries, all these cities and bringing fear over the people, so they obey, take its toll. The feeling of loneliness, the fear of betrayal is hunting her every step she takes. All of that made her such a realistic, dark and twisted character. Also the character development was just fascinating! The other characters, new and old, are also created in a perfect, realistic way.

I fell in love with a cute thief always looking out for Adelina. Something that only Elites can see. And the guy saying it to Adelina is it to. The way he always makes her smile, the way he cares for her and tries to make everything better for her. The way Marie Lu writes is beautiful and addictive and now she is one of my favorite authors because of that trilogy. View all 11 comments. Oct 23, Anja rated it really liked it. This book has me sooooo damn conflicted , I don't even know where to start with this review or how to wrap my head around everything that's happened and that this trilogy just officially ended!

I don't even know whether I freaking love or absolutely loathe that godforsaken ending, I'm just completely in shock right now. This is still one of the darkest series I have ever read, hands down. Despite the fact that we saw Adelina change from an insecure girl who just wanted to be loved to a tyrannical, cruel woman, I never really hated or disliked her. That's a feat that not everyone can accomplish! Even though she became so dark and twisted, she was still likeable.

I loved that in the end she slowly let go of her darkness again, and that ending was absolutely perfect yet heartbreaking for her at the same time! Also, don't even get me started on Magiano because I could just rant on and on about how much I love him, but I'll spare you all from that and just say that he's an absolutely wonderful character that I fell in love with from the first moment he appeared.

Forget Enzo, I'm team Magiano! It was great to see all the major characters from all the previous books come together to surpass the big final hurdle that was this book. They had to put their differences aside, whether they were rivals, enemies or friends. I feel like lots of lessons could be learned from these books and The Young Elites will forever go down as one of my favorite book trilogies in history. The one thing I can say for certain right now is that Marie Lu is one hell of a brilliant writer and I'm reading whatever she publishes next! Jan 02, Jamie rated it it was amazing.

Well if that is true, I can honestly say, a part of me is missing. This book stole a part of me and I don't think I will ever get it back. And you know what? It is sad, painful, undoubtedly beautiful and ter "We were never meant to exist, Adelina," he says. It is sad, painful, undoubtedly beautiful and terribly bittersweet; but somehow that's okay.

This book proves to me once again that Marie Lu must enjoy making me suffer. Secretly, she is somewhere hiding away feeding off my suffering. While this book was rather short in comparison to the others, I think it kept the story tight and moving continuously. Though to be perfectly honest I certainly would not have minded a few more chapters.

Because I love these characters and this story so much. As we've come to expect from Marie Lu she takes all the wonderfully complex characters, conflicts and themes we've come to love and really drives them home. This book is nothing short of amazing. Adelina and Magiano These two are everything! You are free to come and go as you wish.

The greatest of mankind. A laugh escapes his lips. Then his expression turns serious. Do you miss her too? If you could see into my thoughts, you would surely turn away. So why would you stay with me, even if we return to Kenettra and resume our lives? I have seen your darkness, yes, and know your struggle. You are a thousand things, mi Adelinetta, not just one. He sees her, all of her, and he is unafraid. He quiets the dark whispers in her mind.

He keeps the nightmares at bay. But most importantly, he loves her. Until the very end he loves her, even in death. When she appears on the other side of the world, I will be there, and when she returns here, so will I. But their love was not built to last. This book proves that. Both Enzo and Adelina have darkness, ambition, and fire in their hearts. Neither of them needed more of it. While they may have loved each other, they did not need each other. Raffaele wonders whom Enzo is thinking about. It is not Adelina, but a girl long gone, from a happier time in his past.

The black pools in his eyes finally vanish, and a name drifts from his lips. He says it so quietly I nearly miss it. It is not my name, but the name of another girl, one he had known and loved long ago. Enzo may have been Adelina's first love, but clearly, he was not the love of her life and she was surely not his. Teren and Adelina I can't say these two had anything close to a good relationship. But I suppose I can say they had a sort of understanding. Two people who could see the monster inside the other. Two people who were in constant battle with inner demons.

In another life, perhaps, they could have been friends. I have killed and destroyed too. Perhaps we have always been one and the same, just as he used to tell me. And now that he's gone, I feel a sudden rush of exhaustion, a freeing grief. His death marks the end of a long chapter in my life. They were so sweet for most of the first book, and then got completely wrecked by the end of the first book and much of second. However, we finally see some hope for these two in this book. Because Raffaele finally recognizes, that despite his best intentions, he hurt Adelina more than he could have imagined.

When he turned his back on her he never imagined that that meant saying goodbye to the girl he once knew. Perhaps, if he had helped, embraced her instead of sending her away things would have been different. And a life of what ifs is the most painful kind. It is my fault, what Adelina has become. My fault that it is too late. He recalls looking down from the window in his Dalia lodging to see a girl with silver-bright hair, conjuring an illusion of darkness such that he had never seen.

He remembers the day she first came to his chambers in Estenzia, when Enzo was still alive and she was still innocent, and the way she looked up at him with her uncertain, damaged gaze. He remembers her test, and what he said to Enzo that night. How long ago that had been. How he had judged her wrongly. Raffaele looks around the clearing, searching for one last figure. He looks high and low hoping for footprints in the snow or shadows in the forest line. He wishes he could still sense the energy of the living, could pinpoint where she is.

But even then, he knows that he would arrive at the same answer as the others. Adelina and Violetta It's the third and final book, yet I am still not sure how I feel about these two. Actually, that's not true. I know how I feel about them, I just feel like I may be in the minority. I understand the familial love, truly I do. But still, I cannot bring myself to fully like Violetta.

And I think that stems primarily from the fact that I love Adelina so much. She's made a lot of mistakes, a lot, but she led a very hard life. She suffered more than anyone should ever have to, and no matter how many times Adelina or anyone else reminds me how much Violetta loved her, I will say this, Violetta never did anything to help protect Adelina from their father. Violetta may be goodness and she may be light, but I think that is greatly due to the fact that for most of her life all she has ever received is love. Love from her father, love from her sister, from all her suitors and nearly everyone she meets.

And while I appreciate her goodness, she lacks the one thing I look for above all else, strength. The strength to stand up for something, the willingness to going against the accepted norm. The will to fight for what she believes and knows is right. It constantly felt like Adelina was the only one fighting, and Violetta was just along for the ride. And in the end, once again, it was Adelina who made the greatest sacrifice. When I got to the end I was left thinking, what did Violetta do that she earned this end? What has she sacrificed?

Adelina, Enzo, Raffaele and even Teren, they all suffered so much. They'd lived though so much and they all certainly deserved better than they got. I suppose, however, that at least in the end Violetta finally did something I appreciated. She finally fought for her sister in her own way. Though I will always feel Violetta never fought for Adelina as much as Adelina fought for her, and that is my problem. Nevertheless, I loved Adelina until the very end and, like Magiano, I respected her decision. It is important to note that it takes a great book to make me appreciate and fully reflect on its characters and storyline.

This book does just that. Despite my lingering heartache, I can say this book is an absolute gem. I loved every second of it and would be more than willing ride along for this journey again. As I've said, the ending is very bittersweet. But I truly appreciated how Marie Lu concluded this magnificent journey.

The ending made sense, it was in character and this was the kind of story and end that legends are made of. View all 23 comments. Nov 07, Anna the Annonymous Android rated it it was ok. I am so disappointed. View all 12 comments. Sep 21, Alyssa rated it really liked it Shelves: October 11, Rating: ARC sent by the publisher Summary from Goodreads: 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. I am blown away by Marie Lu's storytelling, her writing, and her stories in general. I don't typically read books so dark at least in Young Adult , but I couldn't resist this series. And I'm glad I didn't - it was a magnificent and heartbreaking trilogy. This final novel starts about a year or so after the end of The Rose Society so it's been about two years since the beginning of The Young Elites.

Adelina is suffering from the voices and hallucinations and nightmares, even more so than usual. But she's also very successful in her conquests - she is now the Queen of the Sealands, and she wants more. But every newly conquered territory fails to have what Adelina is looking for - her sister, who fled. And every new territory brings more and more assassination attempts, and more cruelty from Adelina. But there is a growing danger that is bigger than conquering lands and finding Violetta, and Adelina will find herself in the middle of the problem.

To stop this growing chaos, she must learn to trust the Daggers that she has grown to hate.
