Series: Legend, Book #3
Rating:


Again, this time I didn’t tear through Champion. I was anxious to read this book and finish the series so once I got past the second chapter I went through it fairly quickly.

We open with Day and June apart, Day working within the military and June as the Princeps-Elect. As the Republic struggles towards a peace treaty with the Colonies a biohazard plague starts ripping through the Colonies.


With the treaty on the line June reaches out to Day to ask him to risk the person he loves the most, his brother, for finding a cure. Eden’s blood may have the cure, but can June and Day’s splintered friendship and even more complicated romantic history withstand the challenge of secret plots, traitors and unforeseen alliances?

If the challenges facing him weren’t enough Day is struggling with his own deteriorating health while June must decide, once and for all, which side she is loyal to. With the country and their relationship on the line, the final book is a good ride through Marie Lu’s world.

Read If:
You like dystopian novels, you like alternating points of view, you enjoy stories of rebellion, and you enjoy plot twists coming from all angles

Don't Read If:
You dislike alternating points of view, if you dislike dystopian, if you prefer older heroes and heroines (Day and June are 15-16 years old)

About author

Brittney Soban

Brittney is a writer, reader and general lover of all things that end up printed on a page. With a few published poems and a lot of unpublished stories and novels she spends her days doing a nine to five job while wishing she was home working on the worlds she loves to create. As “punishment”, her and her brothers were banned from watching television for a week, leading to Brittney deciding that the free books at the library were better than TV and, in a very Matilda fashion, she took home loads of books every day and has never looked back. A reader of all types of literature, she will read practically anything put in front of her as long as something within it, no matter how small, sparks her interest. Give her high fantasy, science fiction, mystery, it doesn’t matter, but her love does lie within the fantasy and YA genres. A series junkie on top of everything else, she picks and chooses when to begin a series based on how many standalone books also await her attention in her to be read pile. Once she starts a series she will read every installment available back to back until she finishes a series or is forced to wait for the next publication. Called a book dragon by her boyfriend, the term is fitting as she owns more books than anything else and is quite sure her obituary will state she died under an avalanche of books. She truly wouldn’t have it any other way.
