This first book in a new series from the author of the Legend trilogy is an imaginative dystopian thriller.  Years after a blood plague devastated the population of Kenettra, killing every adult with the sickness and many of the children, the surviving children and teenagers are known as malfettos.  All of the malfettos carry scars from their illness, and some emerged with unusual powers.  Rumors of a very talented group of malfettos, known as the Young Elites, alternately terrify and excite the kingdom’s people.  The Windtalker, who can bend the wind to her will, the Reaper, who can create and wield fire, the Star Thief, who can steal the minds of animals… these powerful malfettos and more have heard about a young woman named Adelina, who killed her father with phantoms created in her mind.  The Young Elites want Adelina for purposes they are slow to reveal.   But Adelina, renamed the White Wolf, might be much more powerful, and much more dangerous, than any had imagined.The Young Elites
