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.

    OH MY GOODNESS. I knew the third, often regarded as final, book in the Legend series was bound to cause some heartbreak, but I was absolutely crushed—in the best way possible—by the ending. Throughout the novel, millions of emotions kept building up: Day and June's sadness from being apart, their desperation and need to be with each other, but also the hesitance, anger, and anguish festering between them. Their relationship is developed in such a way I have never seen before. Amidst their conflicting emotions, a war between the Republic and the Colonies is in full swing, with Day and June at the heart of it. A new plague variant is spreading across the Colonies from the Republic, but the Republic does not have a cure—yet. By the end of this thrilling novel, the ball drops, and the war is resolved while a major crisis changes the trajectory of Day and June's relationship forever. So, so good. Five stars, always.

            Eh, it was okay. I mean, Day forgets June! But, Marie Lu my all time favorite author. All caps. ALL TIME FAVORITE AUTHOR! If anyone has read Warcross, you know why she's such an amazing author. That is the best book of all time! It even beats HARRY POTTER.

              June is somehow up against her beloved republic. Will she convince Anden she's on his side? Is she? Will Day and her ever work out? I absolutely loved this book. I recommend it to anyone who can handle the suspense and drama.

                  I really love this final book to the series! Although the ending was a bit anticlimactic and disappointed me a little, I was still heartbroken by how one of the main characters had amnesia and forgot practically everything. I seriously couldn't stop reading this book, it was packed with action and romance and there's a new event or problem happening every time you turn the page. It's full of plot twists and so much action. I really didn't like how June and Day thought they weren't good enough for each other, it was so frustrating for me as they were perfect together. I was a bit disappointed by the ending because June and Day had to start all over again (their relationship) and I really wanted to read about what happened next between them. I really recommend this series, 100%!!!!!
