This month’s SERIESous Spoilers Pick:
The Midnight Star by Marie Lu| The Young Elites Trilogy
Was I the only one who thought this moment would have a bigger impact? This was one of the only things I felt that was rushed in this novel. Enzo was such a huge character in the first book and while his role was reduced in the second novel, I just felt that his death should have a bigger impact on Adelina as a character in the grande scheme of things.
I really don’t know how else you could have ended this without Adelina dying. While I’m all for anti-heroes being redeemed, I think a HEA for her would have been a bit of a sellout for her. So this worked for me–though I was worried for a minute that we were going to get her back into the world of the living.
–How the Title Works for the Story–
This was the only title I couldn’t figure out for the longest time. Why “midnight star”. But that whole bit at the end was just brilliant. I love how everything was tied up by a simple page of writing.
What are your thoughts? Agree or disagree? What are you looking forward to the most in the next book?
