The Midnight Star (Young Elites Book 3) - Marie Lu

♪♫My Pick For Book Theme Song♫♪

Monster by Skillet  --For Adelina…the monstrous girl…

The secret side of me, I never let you see

I keep it caged but I can't control it

So stay away from me, the beast is ugly

I feel the rage and I just can't hold it

It's scratching on the walls, in the closet, in the halls

It comes awake and I can't control it

Hiding under the bed, in my body, in my head

Why won't somebody come and save me from this, make it end?

My Thoughts

 

Overall, a satisfying ending to this vivid, darkishly fantastical realm.  While, I didn't like this as much as her Legend Series, it was a worthwhile read.  Despite my minds underwhelming capacity for the fantastical.  If you sometimes like to root for the bad guys, then this should be to your liking.

My Thoughts

 

A fast paced, suspenseful mystery, that's not without it's flaws.  But, overall I found this nail bitingly intense and hard to put down.  As long as you're not expecting literary perfection, and you enjoy YA Suspense/Mysteries this is a thrilling read.  Seriously, I just kept waiting for the banjo...
