Last night, between tears of pain and tears of joy, i finished Champion, book three of the Legend series. It has been a long time since a book made me cry and this book took my emotions through a roller coaster. Told from both June’s and Day’s perspectives, this book really makes you understand what both characters are thinking, feeling. That alone will put you into sensory overload. By far, Champion was my favorite of the series because of the plot twist at the end of Prodigy, book 2. I am so glad that I didn’t read this book when it first came out because I could easily see myself getting frustrated with release dates!
Marie Lu is a genius. Her inspiration comes from Les Miserable and takes you into the futuristic dystopian adventure. I am posting a synopsis from her site of the first book so you can see just how great it is.
Legend by Marie Lu
The flooded coast of former Los Angeles. Two warring nations of North America–the Republic and the Colonies.
Born into an elite family in one of the Republic’s wealthiest districts, fifteen–year–old June is a prodigy. Obedient, passionate, and committed to her country, she is being groomed for success in the Republic’s highest military circles.
Born into the slums of the Republic’s Lake Sector, fifteen–year–old Day is the country’s most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.
From different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths—until the day June’s brother is murdered. And Day becomes the prime suspect. Now, caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family’s survival while June tries desperately to avenge her brother’s death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together and the sinister lengths their country will go to in order to keep its secrets.
