The Elites, Paperback
3 out of 5 (1 rating)


A beautifully written futuristic romance 'There is a rumour that the Elites don't bleed.' Hundreds of years into the future, wars, riots, resource crises and rising sea-levels have destroyed the old civilisations.

Only one city has survived: Neo-Babel, a city full of cultures - and racial tension.

Fifteen-year-old Silver is an Elite, a citizen of Neo-Babel chosen to guard the city due to her superior DNA.

She'd never dream of leaving - but then she fails to prevent the assassination of Neo Babel's president, setting off a chain of events more shocking and devastating than she could ever have imagined.

Forced to flee the city with her best friend Butterfly (a boy with genetically-enhanced wings), Silver will have to fight to find her family, uncover the truth about Neo-Babel and come to terms with her complicated feelings for Butterfly.

Packed full of adventure, romance, exoticism and the power of friendship, THE ELITES is a highly compelling and beautifully written novel from a supremely talented debut author.

Review by

Plot: 3 stars <br/>Characters:3 stars <br/>Style: 3 stars <br/>Pace: 2 1/2 stars<br/><br/>The tension was all over the place on this one, and not in a good way. In an "I repeatedly got bored and wandered off, but once I finally slogged through to the next dramatic bit, it was hard to put down until it got boring again.". I had a hard time really caring about what happened to them, but the action scenes were well done.<br/>
