Legend by Marie Lu
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.
I rated Legend a 5/5 stars. One of my favorite genres is Dystopian so I was super excited to start reading this book. This book has major hype and I needed to see what all the fuss was about, I picked this book up and I was about 20 pages in and I thought oh my gosh this is amazing, and I could'nt put the book down after that.
I love both the characters Day and June, they are both unique and truly good characters, also their names make everything sound so interesting and make the story so fun to read!
Legend is super action packed and also so gripping. When I was reading this book it made me curious about what happens next and this to me is such an important quality in a book.
LOVED this book and I absolutely cannot wait to read the next two books in the trilogy.
If you are new to Young-Adult reading I definitly recommend Legend to you, I guarantee that it will leave you wanting more! :)
