Exclusive Book Trailer: Marie Lu’s The Young Elites

Exclusive Book Trailer: Marie Lu’s The Young Elites


It’s been nearly a year since we said goodbye to Day, June, and the rest of the characters from the bestselling Legend trilogy. But while readers have been searching for dystopians to fill the void, Marie Lu has been hard at work crafting a new world.

In The Young Elites, Lu takes readers to a nation in recovery. A decade earlier, a contagious blood fever swept through the land and left nearly all of the infected dead and the survivors badly scarred. The physical marks they carry aren’t all that alienates them from society though: The fever brought with it strange and powerful gifts. The Young Elites formed to protect themselves from the Inquisition Axis, a movement by the king to destroy the Elites.

Bookish has the first look at the book’s trailer:

Between the trailer and the descriptions on Lu’s tumblr, this new cast is starting to take shape. The Young Elites hits bookshelves on October 7th, giving us just enough time to obsess over the characters and their powers. Hate? Fear? Nah, we totally want to be the Elites.

Kelly Gallucci
Far too busy rereading the Harry Potter series, Kelly finds that her greatest literary sin is that she neglected to read classics like The Shining and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. In between overseeing the editorial content for Bookish, holding interviews with authors like Leigh Bardugo and Victoria Schwab, and creating book recommendations for Kanye West—Kelly’s trying to catch up on the books she missed out on. She just finished The Great Gatsby and might be in love with Fitzg. Kelly received her B.A. in English Writing from Marist College and her M.A. in Screenwriting from National University of Ireland, Galway. She is a Gryffindor.
