Review Quotes:
Praise for The Rose Society--A New York Times bestseller!

"Are you a fan of, say, "X-Men" or "Star Wars" (a.k.a. are you HUMAN)? . . . Marie Lu's upcoming "The Rose Society," and its main character is basically a female Magneto crossed with Darth Vader. Also, she's a teenager. I know -- pretty badass."--

"A tightly woven tapestry of a story that ensnares even as it disturbs."-- Booklist, starred review

"Lu constructs a fascinating triangle of opposing forces seeking power, and the ensuing twists and epic battles leave many dead, broken, or forever changed."-- Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Original and sobering, Adelina is an antihero of nigh-unremitting darkness: an unusual young woman in the mold of such archetypes as Lucifer, Macbeth, and Darth Vader."-- Kirkus Reviews

"Teens will be fascinated to watch the main character descend into villainy and revel in it."-- School Library Journal
