Champion Marie Lu

He is a Legend.
She is a Prodigy.
Who will be Champion?

June and Day have sacrificed so much for the people of the Republic—and each other—and now their country is on the brink of a new existence.

June is back in the good graces of the Republic, working within the government’s elite circles as Princeps Elect while Day has been assigned a high level military position. But neither could have predicted the circumstances that will reunite them once again.

Just when a peace treaty is imminent, a plague outbreak causes panic in the Colonies, and war threatens the Republic’s border cities.

This new strain of plague is deadlier than ever, and June is the only one who knows the key to her country’s defense. But saving the lives of thousands will mean asking the one she loves to give up everything he has.

With heart-pounding action and suspense, Marie Lu’s bestselling trilogy draws to a stunning conclusion. ( Summary from goodreads

Okay whatever with the summary wow just…wow.

I was reading this during NaNoWriMo so I only remember the recent parts I read (the end?

The characters were so awesome in this book! June and Day were written really well. We got to see Tess again and it looks like she got over Day. I think in Prodigy she was just eaten up by jealousy and wasn’t really thinking. In the end, she was the girl I knew in Legend.

Now the plot as always with me in war like dystopian novels, was confusing and I really didn’t care. If you told me to explain this book, my explanation wouldn’t be vague.

I actually could tell what was happening for once. I can understand what is happening with the Republic and the Colonies so good job to Marie Lu for helping me understanding. It was a really nice plot and I loved the complex decisions Anden has to make!

Speaking of Anden, he askes for Eden (similar names I just realized) for experiments. Woah there. Day of course refuses but then that little kid has actually grown up! He’s no longer that helpless boy who needs rescuing. Eden has the stubbornness and character to help the Republic, the Republic that gave him the virus. That is some real character development.

Okay so now Day oh my glob.

That ending okay? I jus gabhg. I hate that he forgot his memory, I hate it.

Don’t blame me but I kind of sort of think that eh…he should have died? I don’t know maybe I’m feeling bitter from Allegiant but I feel as if it’s better for June if he died remembering than living without remembering.

Day did in the end, has a foggy feeling about June so maybe he could recall stuff as time goes on? My feelings about this is kind of mixed.

Anyway, I really hope that Marie Lu would make a short e book or something I want to see what happens! 5 out of 5
