AHH! Cover Reveal for LEGEND Author Marie Lu’s Next Phase of the Series! ‘THE YOUNG ELITES’

1397147805000-9780399167836Marie Lu is taking the Legend series into a new phase, The Young Elites follows a survivor of the blood plague, Adelina Amouteru, with some distinguishing traits like a large scar and white hair. Rejected by her family, she joins the underground society of young elites. Some of the elites are out for good, while chose to use their talents for the worst, and Adelina comes in and shakes up their world..

Marie Lu says:

 “It chronicles a good person’s downfall into becoming a villain, and I think this cover conveys that beautifully. The ominous clouds, the light vs. the dark, the dagger, and the bold title all work together so well. I’m in love with it.”

I am so excited about this book, I can’t even think straight! I LOVED the Legend series, and with this book being compared to an X-Men sort of storyline, I am SO IN!! Are you?

The Young Elites is out October 7th from Penguin.
