Legend (Legend Trilogy book 1) by Marie Lu

This is the first book in the Legend Trilogy

Los Angeles, California

Republic of America

He is Day.

The boy who walks in the light.

She is June.

The girl who seeks her brother’s killer.

On the run and undercover, they meet by chance. Irresistably drawn together, neither knows the other’s past.

But Day murdered June’s brother.

And she has sworn to avenge his death.

I’m rereading this series before I read the newest book in the series because I don’t completely remember everything that happened on it. And so, this is my second time reading this book. I never left a proper review last time so I’m doing it now.

I enjoyed reading this book. The characters are great, the storyline is good and the plot develops at a good pace.

June is a great character. She’s a strong and clever character who only knows what her upbringing has allowed her to know. She believes what she does because she doesn’t know any better. Her brothers death changes everything for her though. It leads her to Day, and from that, she learns the truth.

Day is also a brilliant character. He’s seen the truth. He’s been part of it. Considering his life and upbringing, he is such a good person. I absolutely love the connection he has with June and reading their relationship slowly develop is brilliant.

I really dislike Thomas. Everything about him. He comes across all caring, but his views are so for the Republic that he doesn’t question anything. It’s the same with the commander.

The storyline is brilliant. It’s a case of June slowly learning the truth. I love the way society is described. We learn about the different fractions slowly, and at the end, we still don’t truly know which one is right in their views. I’m intrigued to learn more about the Patriots and the Colonies.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this book. It’s storyline is great and with brilliant characters.

My rating: 5/5*
