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.
