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.

Yeah, I'm a guy...who cares? (Obsessed with Dystopian Novels...dunno why)
After the extremely disappointing read of Allegiant, and the s***ty conclusion to Divergent, I was pretty worried about the ending to this series, because of what Marie Lu said in an interview, "I hope people still like me after the ending! I'm honestly not entirely sure if I'm going to be getting a lot of hate mail, but we'll see what happens"!; as many people have said, life sucks as it is, we want a good ending :P. Some of the people reading this book might not like the ending...but it gave me a really good feeling as Day said the exact lines in a previous book, not sure if it was Legend or Prodigy, but Marie Lu brought the ending full circle. I bought Legend, Prodigy, and The 5th Wave (apocalyptic novel, great read, 1st book in a trilogy) in July. I read The 5th Wave first, and then I read Legend and Prodigy in two successive days. After the cruel ending/cliffhanger of Prodigy (already had one of...
4.5 Star Rating for Champion 4 Star Rating for the complete Legend Series
After a few very disappointing endings to dystopian trilogies this year...Requiem I'm still upset and Allegient you're still in the corner, you know what you did....I was worried that Marie Lu would follow that trend. OMG thank god she didn't. Marie Lu actually remembered what her trilogy was about and stayed very true to the meaning of the overall story. Yes, there are heartbreaking moments, tragedies, sacrifices but they were all believable and well within what I thought the characters would do. Honestly this was not one of my favorite dystopian series going into Champion. But Marie Lu has completed a very strong series overall and the last book in the series is my favorite.
There is something for everyone in this series. It has enough action to keep things entertaining, a sweet complicated romance aspect, love of family, honor, duty, struggles, heroism and sacrifice.
This book was such a sweet relief after finishing the Divergent series and being utterly disappointed. Lu did a fantastic job wrapping up this story and now I'm just sad it's over. Definitely worth the wait :)
