“I’m not worried about losing this fight. I’m more worried that I’ll accidentally kill my opponent.”

After five years as a criminal on the run, Day has become the most wanted fugitive in the Republic.

After five years of training to become a soldier, June will stop at nothing to find Day, who she believes to be her brother’s killer.

Now the most accomplished prodigy in the Republic and the most accomplished criminal on the streets will face off with explosive results. The Republic’s crimes against its citizens surprise even Day, and June’s foundations are rocked by the shocking lies and cover-ups she finds. It’s possible they have more in common than they ever imagined. Can adversaries become allies to uncover the truth?

My Review:  I loved the characters, the fast pace, the daring of Day’s crimes and the smart, methodical way June finds him.  Their different backgrounds make their relationship so intriguing, and the sinister motives behind the Republic’s manipulation of its citizens still lurk beneath the surface.  June and Day have a long way to go in their quest to discover the truth about the Republic, but I for one can’t wait to go with them. Luckily, book 2 will be released fall 2012.

Read this book if you like The Hunger Games but wonder what Capitol residents think of the government. In Legend you see the shocking differences between Day’s slum experience and June’s upper class lifestyle and how they’re each treated by Republic officials.  Check it out today!  Legend by Marie Lu is now available at the library.
