Book Review: Legend by Marie Lu

Legend by Marie Lu
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

The United States is now known as the Republic; a country separated by the slums and the rich, a country at war with the Colonies and the Patriots. June and Day grow up on opposite ends of the spectrum. Day is the Republic's most wanted criminal, a covert hero of the slums and anti-war movements. June, raised in an elite and wealthy family, is the Republic's military prodigy; the only person to score perfectly on the Trials. When June's brother, Metias, is murdered, Day becomes the prime suspect. June heads out to avenge Metias' murder, while Day races to save his family. Crossing paths, they begin to question what really brought them together, what secrets their country is keeping. 

Legend is dazzling; a fast-paced, in your face, and sharp novel. Marie Lu did an incredible job developing realistic characters and their relationships with one another, who will plunge you into their world. The action-packed story line will keep you eager for more. I felt powerless reading it, I could not put it down. Legend is exquisite, brilliant, and shockingly honest. It is one of those books that I insist you read, as soon as possible.
