Just Finished: Legend by Marie Lu

Legend by Marie Lu

Publisher:  Putnam Juvenile

Release Date:  November 2011


Summary:  What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic’s wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic’s highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country’s most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.  From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths—until the day June’s brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family’s survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias’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 keep its secrets.

Notes:  Dystopian Society.  Military rule (or has a high focus as such since one of our narrators is a military trained person).  Not bad.  Intriguing.

  1. While it was a bit predictable at times, I loved this book. Need to go out and get Prodigy, it’s out in stores now!

  2. I had the ARC for Prodigy since last July… I’ll get to it sometime… way too much to read… there’s something that just can’t pull me into the love it band wagon… though I did enjoy it.
