The explosive finale to Marie Lu’s New York Times bestselling LEGEND trilogy—perfect for fans of THE HUNGER GAMES and DIVERGENT!
He is a Legend.
She is a Prodigy.
Who will be Champion?
June and Day have sacrificed so much for the people of the Republic—and each other—and now their country is on the brink of a new existence. June is back in the good graces of the Republic, working within the government’s elite circles as Princeps Elect while Day has been assigned a high level military position. But neither could have predicted the circumstances that will reunite them once again. Just when a peace treaty is imminent, a plague outbreak causes panic in the Colonies, and war threatens the Republic’s border cities. This new strain of plague is deadlier than ever, and June is the only one who knows the key to her country’s defense. But saving the lives of thousands will mean asking the one she loves to give up everything he has. With heart-pounding action and suspense, Marie Lu’s bestselling trilogy draws to a stunning conclusion.

"Legend"- "Champion" a Must Read if you love "Divergent" and "Hunger Games"
Much praise to Marie Lu! Her "Legend" trilogy is a completely fresh and relentlessly breathless page-turner to sate the appetites of fans, young and old, who devoured "The Hunger Games" and "Divergent" (pardon the pun)!
Lu's trilogy also takes place in a post-apocalyptic future Earth, in which young, bright heroes and heroines strive to make a better society. But that's where past trilogy similarities come to an end. "Legend" has it's own unique environments, terrors and human relationships that make for an ingenious new storyline and landscape. The entire trilogy is a breathless page-turner, devoid of tedious details and brimming with continuous unexpected highs and lows.
Allow for a decent chunk of time out of your life to read all three books; because once you start, you will be loathe to quit! I hope this review helps. (Thanks Marie Lu!)
Get out a blanket, a drink and your reading glasses and find a comfy spot to sit because you won’t be going anywhere until you finish this book. Books 1 and 2 were excellent. The third brings together every element of this story, love, grief, politics, war, tragedy, family, and who your true enemy is and winds it into a mind-boggling assortment of relevance and insanity at once. Opening it at first you might assume that it’s simply tying up all the loose ends of the first two books. You’d be sorely mistaken and will soon find out that this book (as with the others) will keep you guessing until the last page with an ending you wouldn’t soon see coming. This series kept me up for forty-eight hours straight but it was the last book that had me gasping in fear, crying in grief and sighing in satisfaction and hope. To use a critic cliche, a MUST READ of the literary world. You don’t know a good book until you’ve read the Legend series.
I loved this whole serious, so much. I'm really into this genre of books. And I love when authors throw in romance, it gives you something to root for. But...this book shattered me. The ending is not at all what I wanted. I'm literally sitting in my room trying to find my life again. I can't even function. The rest of the book is good, the last 11 pages killed me. Prepare yourself.
