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.

This book was recommended by my friends. Since then I’ve been wanting to read this. I couldn’t put it down. It’s only 305 pages and it took me 6 hours just to finish it. This is definitely on my top list of favorite Dystopian book. It was a fun roller coaster ride. Thank you so much Marie Lu for writing something epic, unique, amazing and swoon worthy characters. I love the plot. It’s different from the other dystopian books I’ve read like Divergent and THG.
I love June Iparis. She’s smart, talented and she thinks first before she acts. Day ohmygosh could we talk about him? He’s already on my list of fictional boyfriends. I love their instalove. He’s gorgeous, cunning and look at his eyes! Their beautiful. He’s beautiful. I love Tess! She’s very cute and I love her relationship with Day. I couldn’t believe what happened in the ending. I was crying because you-know-what-happened.
I give a perfect 5 out of 5 stars. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Prodigy. I want more action packed stories. I assure you that you will love Legend as much as I do. *Hands down
