Book Review:
Legend by Marie Lu

Title: Legend
Author: Marie Lu
Published: 2011

Pages: 352
Rating: 3/5

This is the first book in the Legend trilogy.

Set in the future US, the Republic dominate the west and is at war with the Colonies.

June is from an elite district; she's rich, a prodigy and is being groomed for success for the highest military rank in the Republic. Day is the complete opposite; born in the slums, he is the country's most wanted criminal.

But when Junes brother is murdered, the Republic points her toward Day, and the hunt begins.

I quite enjoyed this book. Its a very solid first book, and has definitely piqued my interest enough that I'm going to read the rest of the series.

I very much enjoyed the characters in this book, though they are perhaps not the most original. I like how you get a clear picture of all of them, and you really feel for them.

I felt like the world this is set in was very interesting, but there are some things lacking. I don't know if thats because it's deliberately being held back, but I have a feeling it will be revealed in the next books.

Tiny bit annoyed by the romance, I gotta say. I wish for once I could just read one of these kinds of books, and not have to deal with this kind of stuff.

Overall, a good book! I would recommend it if you enjoy dystopian young adult books.

You can get this book at The Book Depository*, or as an ebook on Amazon.
You can read more about it on Goodreads.
