The explosive finale to Marie Lu’s New York Times bestselling LEGEND trilogy—perfect for fans of THE HUNGER GAMES and DIVERGENT!
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.
Why I Can’t Wait: If you’ve read the first two books in this series, Legend and Prodigy, then you know exactly why it is I cannot wait for this finale. If you haven’t read these books yet, what are you waiting for?! Legend was an amazing dystopian debut but it was the sequel that totally blew me away. And that ending!! GAH! I’ve been thinking a lot about this book lately and I don’t even care that it doesn’t have a cover yet. I just need it to be in my life, ASAP!
**EDIT** JUST added the new cover to the post! OMG I’m even more excited!!!!** (source)
