The Rose Society ARC Giveaway!!! + My Villain Squad

(Instagram: ursula_uriarte)

Who is excited for the next installment of The Young Elites? I definitely am! The Rose Society will hit shelves on October 13th!

If you haven't yet read The Young Elites I very highly recommend it! You can head on to my Instagram (link above) and enter to win a hardcover. 

The Young Elites is a fantastic novel, not only because the world is very unique but because the protagonists have super powers. We always think about super powers and main characters as the heroes of the story but in The Young Elites they are more villains than heroes.

Adelina has a dark side, and I don't mean to say that she is this mean and cruel girl. She just doesn't have completely control of her power as of yet. Emotions play a big role when it comes to her power and in The Young Elites we see her training to try and reign that in. Her goal is be able to control her power as oppose to her power having control over her. But when everything you know turns out to be a lie, when people you love turn their back on you and betray you, it will be hard for her not to want to lash out in revenge. 

I have to confess that I am one to love the villains more than the heroes more often than not. Of course there are some that are just awful but there are many that while always perceived as villains, they do still have a human side to them and feelings, and their powers may be scary but they can also do good.

If I was a villain I would be like Mad Moxxi I think (well a toned down version lol) with Grisha like superpowers, I think I would enjoy having powers such as any of the Corporalnik, to be able to control someone's life or death with my hands and mind by manipulating their vital organs.
My villain name would be Xurs

And what would a villain be without her squad? Let me introduce to one of the members of mine!
This is Frost (aka Carmen) and you can read all about her super powers HERE


Read below for more information about THE YOUNG ELITES and THE ROSE SOCIETY!

I am tired of being used, hurt, and cast aside.

Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever. A decade ago, the deadly illness swept through her nation. Most of the infected perished, while many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. Adelina’s black hair turned silver, her lashes went pale, and now she has only a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Her cruel father believes she is a malfetto, an abomination, ruining their family’s good name and standing in the way of their fortune. But some of the fever’s survivors are rumored to possess more than just scars—they are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites.

Teren Santoro works for the king. As Leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before they destroy the nation. He believes the Young Elites to be dangerous and vengeful, but it’s Teren who may possess the darkest secret of all. 

Enzo Valenciano is a member of the Dagger Society. This secret sect of Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they’ve never seen. 

Adelina wants to believe Enzo is on her side, and that Teren is the true enemy. But the lives of these three will collide in unexpected ways, as each fights a very different and personal battle. But of one thing they are all certain: Adelina has abilities that shouldn’t belong in this world. A vengeful blackness in her heart. And a desire to destroy all who dare to cross her.

It is my turn to use. My turn to hurt.
Once upon a time, a girl had a father, a prince, a society of friends. Then they betrayed her, and she destroyed them all.
Adelina Amouteru’s heart has suffered at the hands of both family and friends, turning her down the bitter path of revenge. Now known and feared as the White Wolf, she and her sister flee Kenettra to find other Young Elites in the hopes of building her own army of allies. Her goal: to strike down the Inquisition Axis, the white-cloaked soldiers that murdered her love, the Crown Prince Enzo Valenciano.

But Adelina is no heroine. Her powers, fed only by fear and hate, have started to grow beyond her control. She does not trust her newfound Elite friends. Teren Santoro, leader of the Inquisition, wants her dead. And her former friends, Raffaele and the Dagger Society, want to stop her thirst for vengeance. Adelina struggles to cling to the good within her. But how can someone be good, when her very existence depends on darkness?

  3. I think my name would be Athina and superpower is mind control. Tapping into someone else's psyche and take control of their mind? I mean that's just deadly, especially if the person controlled is powerful. (biblio_athena)

  6. 1. I didn't know you had a blog. I just thought you posted pretty pictures on Instagram, this makes me very happy.
    2. I love airbender powers, but also lightening powers(think Sith Lord). So if I could manipulate air, my villian name would be Zephyr. If I had the lightening powers I think I'd want my name to be Sith just to see if anyone could figure out why. Thanks for doing this awesome giveaway, you're the best!

  8. My friends have been calling me Captain Slicer (my pirate name) for so many years, that going with "Slicer" is kind of a must for me. I would really love to be able to read minds. If you knew someone's real thoughts, you could do some really terrible things with the knowledge. Manipulation of all sorts, which I think I would be really good at in the most evil ways. Haha. (This is @foldedpagesdistillery!!)

  10. I cannot for the life of me think of a good villain name and I have been trying since you posted about this giveaway! haha I think I would just want to be the female version of The Darkling because he's wonderful and just *swoon* // I'll never be able to decide on a name but I'd definitely be a shapeshifter!! Also, thanks for doing this awesome giveaway! I've heard so many good things about the first book and I've had it on my TBR for so long it's time I get to it! (:
