Summary: 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: 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.
With heart-pounding action and suspense, Marie Lu’s bestselling trilogy draws to a stunning conclusion.
My Thoughts: When I read Legend, it was exciting and one of my favorites of the year!
I am finally done with the series! When I started Champion, I wasn’t sure to think. We are right back there with June and Day and neither of them are really enjoying life. They are living life without each other doing their own thing. They both have their own battles they must face.
I don’t want to say very much about this one in this review incase you haven’t started the series yet. I thought the first part was good, than towards the middle it got somewhat boring and I felt like I wanted it to speed up. And then the end, it got a lot better. It just had a very slow middle and I almost put it down completely but I needed to know how this series was going to end.
I really enjoyed this series but the last one was my least favorite. However, I did really enjoy Day and June again and Day’s little brother. I also really liked the last few pages of Champion! Loved those!
Overall: I liked this one but not as much as the first two. I’m glad how things ended up though. Nice story!!! One of my favorite series of all time! I think this is more of a 3.5 cupcake rating for me!
Cover: I like it! I think Legend has the best cover though!
What I’d Give It:
