There was once a time when darkness shrouded the world, and the darkness had a queen.

Adelina Amouteru is done suffering. She’s turned her back on those who have betrayed her and achieved the ultimate revenge: victory. Her reign as the White Wolf has been a triumphant one, but with each conquest her cruelty only grows. The darkness within her has begun to spiral out of control, threatening to destroy all she’s gained.

When a new danger appears, Adelina’s forced to revisit old wounds, putting not only herself at risk, but every Elite. In order to 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.

Well that was a bloody brilliant ending to an amazing trilogy. I mean, WOW. I probably should not be surprised because HELLOO this is the same author who wrote the Legend trilogy, but still. HOLY HELL I am seriously astounded by the ending and I’m not ready for this world to go away just yet.

“You are a light,” she replies gently. “And when you shine, you shine bright.”

That quote is slowly killing me every time I read it, oh God.

This whole trilogy has been bloody perfect and just when I thought it could not get any better, Marie Lu combined powers with something God-like. UM, I’m not quite sure how to explain it, but ya know how when we always read about books that involve supernatural powers, they never really talk about what it means, what it symbolizes, and how it all affects the natural balance of the world. But The Midnight Star actually deals with those stuffs and me, being the person who loooove anything that relates back to the natural balance of the world, the yin and the yang, you can bet that I was super in love with this book.

I love Adelina, seriously. I swear this is the only main character who did a lot of shitty stuffs and I’m still so goddamn in love with her, because she is just so perfectly imperfect. She’s crazy, you know? And that’s like all of us. We’re all a little bit crazy, we do the meanest things at times, we let our insecurities get the best of us. And like Adelina, we all have those moments where we truly think that we’re the worst sort of person. I bloody rooted for Adelina since the first time we met her in The Young Elite and I never regretted that decision.

And then there’s this part.


HAHAHA. This book killed me. It took me infinite breaths to read this book properly because I thought I was going to have a freaking heart attack, I swear. I’m just. UGH. If you’re about to read The Midnight Star, or are going to do so anytime in the future, this is my advice to you: TISSUES.
