From Goodreads:

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)

    I can’t believe that the third book is coming out in a few months and I still haven’t read the previous two. Huh I must catch up. Great pick 🙂

    Sara I have seen so many of my blogging friends go on about this series. I actually have the first two books as well, but just not had the time to start them. I’m glad that you don’t have to wait too long for the release of Champion. Great pick Sara! 🙂

    I haven’t read anything in this post because I still have no managed to get my hands on PRODIGY! It’s so frustrating! I want to know what happen next but none of the places selling books in my area have it on the shelf! It’s ridiculous.

    Anyway, I’m going to have to resort to online bookstores, just so I can start anticipating CHAMPION with you.

    Love this series!!! I am so pissed at myself that I totally spaced on the signing she just did here recently. Too much other stuff going on, I guess. 🙁 I’m dying for this one, too…that ending broke my heart. Like, some cliffies you know the characters can come back from, but THAT? *cries* Is it November yet?

      Aww, that’s too bad that you missed it. Maybe you’ll have another chance down the road. I was shocked and crying with that ending! NEED to know how it ends. But also scared.

  5. Synchronized Reading

    Yes, yes, YES! I definitely can’t wait for the release! I’m dying to know what happens next 🙂 Really enjoyed the first two books so I can’t wait to see what happens, because that ending was an OMG!

    My WW!

  6. Lisa (Lost in Literature)

    I still haven’t read this series. I know… so bad! There are just so many good books, and I just don’t have enough time to read them all. Ho hum… I think I need to quit my job and read full time. 😀

  7. Beneath the Moon and Stars

    You are not alone! I too am dying for this pretty. That ending was not okay ever. At least we don’t have too terribly long to wait! It could be longer :). Amazing pick this week <3

    I met Marie Lu at a book signing! She is the sweetest person ever. I have her first two books, but haven’t had the opportunity to read them yet, but I love dystopian, and can’t wait to read this series. I didn’t even know she was coming out with a third book soon! How exciting! I probably wait, so I can read all three books in the series back to back.

    Here’s my WOW:

    I had no idea this was coming out so soon! And I didn’t even know there was even a title for it! Thanks for the heads up!

  10. Becca

    I need to read this series, stat. Legend is sitting on my shelf, and Marie Lu is such a cool person. I listened to her at a book tour last year.

  11. Aylee

    Eek, I STILL need to read this series!! You’re making me really wish I were up-to-date with it though! I would really love to fit in the first two books before the third is released – we’ll see!

  12. Krista

    I seriously need to start this series! I’ve read the first five pages like ten times but I still never get past them (even thought they are VERY good)! Great pick!

  13. Sierra

    I LOVE the cover!!!! I’m excited for this book…even if I’m super behind and haven’t read the first two books yet. They’ve been on my list for a while now, I need to pick up my slack!

  14. We Fancy Books

    It’s my first time seeing the cover and omg I can’t wait for it myself! eeep the ending of Prodigy is… asdkjalsdjk ahh Daaay!

    I’m not really fond of this cover, I’m guessing this one would the most romantic of the three and all HEA… hopefully!

    OMG the ending of Prodigy was…Cry my eyes out. I read the summer of Champion and it sounds sad. BUT IT MUST END WELL FOR THE SAKE OF MY YOUNG LIFE!!!!! I Just found out there was a 3rd book though. my teach always gets them the day it comes out in book stores or e reader, and I told her that when she gets it that SHE MUST let me read it first. My teacher is my aunt.
