The Young Elites by Marie Lu - Book Review

Alright, so there will be two parts to this review. The first part is a spoiler free summary and my thoughts on the book (for those of you who haven't read it). And on the second part I will go into deeper detail about the story and share with you all my feels (for those of you who have read it)! And don't worry, before reaching the spoiler section, there will be a warning. :)

Spoiler Free

Summary from the book:
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 a leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before 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. The secret sect of the Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Dagger finds Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they've never seen.
