Talk about mysterious…Marie Lu‘s “The Young Elites” book cover was just released!
“Happy Thursday, guys!!! Look. Lookit. It’s the cover for THE YOUNG ELITES, my new novel which comes out on Oct. 7 of this year. Isn’t it amazing?” Ms. Lu posted on her Tumblr. “I love the ominous clouds. I love the big, bold letters. I love everything about it!”
“The Young Elites” is about Adelina Amouteru, a survivor of a blood plague who is distinctive thanks to a nasty scar and snow-white hair. She’s expelled from her family, yet Adelina finds a new home with the secret society of Young Elites. While some see them as heroes out to save innocents, to others they’re demonically powered monsters who need to be brought to justice — and Adelina may be the one girl who brings real chaos to a land full of magic and politics.
Ms. Lu told USA Today about the new novel, “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.”
