Legend by Marie Lu

Legend (Legend, #1)
Rating: 5/5 stars

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.


Why did I wait so long to read this book?! In part I’m glad because that means I have to wait less for the next book in the series but oh my God, now I know why everyone was raving about it! Legend was amazing and unique. I’m surprised I loved it so much because dystopian books are not that original anymore. BUT Legend was definitely one of a kind.

Legend is told from Day and June’s POV and I loved it. They are so different from each other but still so perfect. For part of the book we see how June and Day live separate lives. Each have their own agendas. But when these two collide the pages explode from chemistry overload. Priorities change and what used to be important is not anymore. June and Day are in my top ten Best Couples EVER list. Is not only the two main characters that makes Legend a remarkable read, the secondary characters and the plot were also incredible and unforgettable.

I wholeheartedly recommend this book! Sorry that this review is more of a gush-fest than a review. If you have read Legend you’ll understand why I loved it so much!
