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 Leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before they destroy 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. This secret sect of Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they've never seen.

Doch die Patrioten fordern eine Gegenleistung: June und Day sollen Anden, den neuen Elektor, tten. Eine Tat, die all dem Unrecht und der brutalen Unterdrckung ein Ende bereiten knnte. Als June jedoch begreift, dass der neue Elektor ganz anders ist als sein Vorgnger, beginnt sie zu zweifeln:Was, wenn Anden einen neuen Anfang darstellt?Was, wenn politische Vernderung nicht unbedingt Tod, Vergeltung und Gewalt bedeuten muss?Was, wenn die Patrioten falsch liegen?"e;Schwelender Sturm"e; ist der zweite Band der Legend-Trilogie.
