Reviews

If you liked The Hunger Games, you'll love this! * Sarah Rees-Brennan, author of The Demon's Lexicon * A romantic thriller set in a post-apocalyptic world where nothing is what it seems--Legend is impossible to put down and even harder to forget. * Kami Garcia, New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Creatures * I could only stand up and cheer, therefore, for Marie Lu's 'Legend.' A fine example of commercial fiction with razor-sharp plotting, depth of character and emotional arc, 'Legend' doesn't merely survive the hype, it deserves it. * New York Times * Marie Lu's dystopian novel is a 'Legend' in the making * USA Today *

The characters are known, world-building is complete, and readers know the destination is still out of reach. It's the second book of a trilogy-how will the author handle it? Lu opts for a high simmer of intrigue in her sequel to Legend. June and Day are crucial pawns in the game of political plot and counterplot as power at the top of the Republic changes hands. Love must take a backseat: for Day, to family and friends; and for June, to the greater good that is her lodestone now that her family is dead. The pair is separated for much of the book, and talk dominates action-the world-shaping machinations are the means to bring about a more personal, subtle pivot in the story. June and Day were once divided by ignorance and circumstance; now they are held apart by principle and choice. The portrayal of their dilemma is taut and insightful, and while the story line resembles a high plateau of tension rather than a conventional arc, there are enough unfolding questions to propel the narrative to its aching ending. Ages 12-up. Agent: Kristin Nelson, Nelson Literary Agency. (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Gr 8 Up-This exciting book starts off right where Legend (Putnam, 2011) ended. June and Day have escaped from Los Angeles and are hitching a ride on a train bound for Vegas to join the Patriots. Reunited with Tess and aided by June's old nemesis, Kaede, Day and June recount in alternate chapters how they become involved in a plot to assassinate young Anden, the new Elector of the Republic, and an acquaintance of June's. If Day can successfully kill Anden, Patriot leader Razor has promised to help him find his younger brother, Eden, and escape to safety in the Colonies. Unsurprisingly, things do not go as planned. Anden has his own agenda, and June finds herself conflicted. Day and June are faced with conspiracies, shifting alliances, trust issues, and seemingly insurmountable obstacles in their quest to be together in this fast-paced and compelling book in the trilogy. Fans will be on the edge of their seats waiting for the conclusion.-Sharon Rawlins, New Jersey State Library, Trenton (c) Copyright 2013.
