Legend Trilogy 1

(5)
A New York Times bestseller!
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.
Full of nonstop action, suspense, and romance, this novel is sure to move readers as much as it thrills.

STARRED REVIEW from PUBLISHERS WEEKLY:
" Lu's debut is a stunner . . . raises hopes high for the sequels to come. "

" A gripping thriller in dystopic future Los Angeles. This is no didactic near-future warning of present evils, but a cinematic adventure featuring endearing, compelling heroes."
STARRED REVIEW from BOOKLIST :
"[D]elicious details keep pages turning . . . you've got the makings for a potent sequel ."
STARRED REVIEW from VOYA :
"A fast-paced blend of action and science fiction (with only a hint of potential romance) means that this one will likely appeal to male and female readers alike. Debut author Lu has managed a great feat-emulating a highly successful young adult series while staying true to her own voice. Legend will give Hunger Games fans something worthwhile to read ."
STARRED REVIEW from LIBRARY MEDIA CONNECTION :
" This book stands out . . ."

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Don't miss the highly-anticipated sequel, PRODIGY!
Featured on ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY 'S MUST-LIST !
From THE LOS ANGELES TIMES :
"Marie Lu has beaten the curse with Prodigy . . . it has all the chivalry of Robin Hood and all the shine and grime of Blade Runner . . . The well-drawn worlds, political undercurrents and the believability of the characters make it all feel fresh . . . Lu proves that a Book 2 needn't play second fiddle , providing intrigue and deep pleasure all its own."
From THE NEW YORK JOURNAL OF BOOKS:
". . . clear your calendar to allow yourself the luxury of reading this book in one or two sittings. You will be shaken . . ."
STARRED REVIEW from PUBLISHERS WEEKLY :
"Lu opts for a high simmer of intrigue in her sequel to Legend...taut and insightful."
STARRED REVIEW from SHELF AWARENESS :
" Stunning follow-up to Legend . . . The thrilling action and futuristic settings are sure to please fans of Divergent ."

„Smart & Intriguing“

Sabrina Reiter, Thalia-Buchhandlung Wien, Donauzentrum

After hearing so many good reviews about the "Legend" trilogy by Marie Lu I finally decided to give this series a go and was not disappointed.

After hearing so many good reviews about the "Legend" trilogy by Marie Lu I finally decided to give this series a go and was not disappointed.

Day and June are different as can be: June, a prodigy from the rich sectors of the Republic and Day, a rather notorious criminal from the slums wouldn't normally cross paths. But after him killing June's brother she vows to hunt Day down...but is that really all that's to it or might there be something else behind the death of the soldier?

I have to admit, that I thought the book to be a little bit slow in the beginning, but its pace picks up as it progresses.
The story is really smart and intriguing and, for my taste, ends all too soon.

I am looking forward to reading the sequel "Prodigy" and recommend this series to fans of "Divergent" and "The Hunger Games".

Better than I expected

The story and writing gripped me from the very beginning and I finished this book within two days, which I didn't expect. I liked that Day and June's chapter were written with different font and finally wasn't the MC (June) a dumb girl! I surprisingly liked every character here and it was refreshing not to have rolling my eyes every few pages. BUT! - The story was really fast-paced and sometimes I wished that the author took more time and told us more about the world, what happend, more about Patriots, maybe some attacks from Patriots, get to know Tessa more,.. There were just the basic and the most important things you need to know for enjoying Legend. - Especially I would appreciate if Marie Lu didn't let Day and June fall in love so quickly; I didn't feel any chemistry and love between them. It was such a pity. Despite these flaws I enjoyed the book. I wasn't amazed but I wasn't disappointed either. If you liked Divergent series, I think you will like this book. I will definitely continue with this series.

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. I don't know where to start. All I can say is that this book was interesting and exciting to read from the first page on. I like the changes bewteen June's and Day's perspective. It gave me a better understanding from their both Point of views. I couldn't put down the book when I started it and it totally desserves 5 out of 5 stars. Like this dystopian Story. and the Setting in Los Angeles. Also reminded me a Little bit of "The Hunger Games".

Das Buch wird aus der Sicht von June und Day geschildert, dadurch erhält man einen besseren Einblick in die Geschichte. Die Ereignisse überschlagen sich und ich war absolut begeistert. Dystopische Romane sind ja momentan sehr im Trend. „Legend“ ist das ideale Buch für „Tribute von Panem“ Fans! Der zweite Teil ist soeben erschienen!!
