    In a dystopian world, Day is a teenage boy on the run from a government who want him dead. June is the government's prodigy - the only to every score 1500 in the Republic's exam. When June's brother is killed by Day, June vows to avenge his death. While undercover, June meets a blonder haired kind boy, with an imperfect eye and a limp to his step. But surely this couldn't be the stone cold killer who took away her brother? And does she have the heart to bring him in, where he will surely be killed himself?WOW.Why haven't I read this book sooner? I am literally slapping myself for only discovering the fantastic mind of Marie Lu now.I just need to say one thing. Day = BAE. What. A. Babe!I felt the premise of The Republic and its closed off world very good, and realistic. While we were't told too much about it, I could understand the kind of world that June and Day were living in and even more so when June went undercover and travelled around different parts of the poorer community that she had prevously scorned.While June is definitely a character you warm up to - I'm not actually sure she could ever be described as a 'warm' character, it's not her nature, Day was mine from the first. I really connected with him, and I felt like it didn't long to know and understand him. He was very genuine and true - from his care of his family, to his gentle friendship with Tess.There was an immediate chemistry between Day and June, and while I'm not 100% sure we haven't seen the last of the Elector's son, though he was only in it for five seconds, i feel like June and Day have found that missing part.The plot of June finding out many things she believed in wasn't strictly true was written well. I did feel she could have hurried up on it, you know being so smart and all. She's actually rather annoyingly cocky and almost overconfident when it comes to her smarts.Following the completion of June's mission, the novel slowed up a bit for me. It felt like a lot of it was June just going back and forth from her apartment and thinking about things. But eventually, the action resumed and that ending, ugh, so bittersweet.Really looking forward to the rest of the trilogy, which I have ordered already!

    June is the 15 year old prodigy of the Republic. She's the only person to ever score full marks in their trial which makes her important. Day is 15 years old, and he's the most wanted criminal in the Republic. June's brother Metias is murdered and Day is the prime suspect. June is put on the case and is hunting down Day to make him pay for what he did to her brother. But, as June spends more time with Day, she begins to realise that there's something else going on and begins to uncover the truth of what happened.June is a strong main character. She wants to prove herself to the Republic, prove that she's ready. She's determined to avenge her brothers death and bring Day down.Day is an extremely resourceful and strong. He would do anything for his family, which ends up being his biggest downfall.The Republic are covering up a lot and June starts to uncover what's been going on with the help of some notes from Metias. Metias had been trying to figure out what happened to their parents, and he left everything he discovered for June. The Republic are controlling everything and June uncovers some things about Metias's death and the plague that cause her to turn against the Republic.There's bit of romance between June and Day. It's not the main focal point, but it's there. I wasn't a huge fan of it in Legend because it felt so rushed, but it might get better in the next books.After everything Day lost in Legend, I hope he can save his brother Eden, since he's the only family Day has left. I also hope there's a bit more about the Patriots in the next book, I'm curious to learn more about them. Legend was a strong start to this trilogy and I can't wait to read the next two books.

    Dystopian YA is one of my favourite genres...and that is probably why I can't give this book 5 stars.This book gave me everything I needed and expected from it's genre. There was a good mix of heartbreak, love, lust, humour, grief, sorrow and everything in between. The problem was that I felt like I was just reading an amalgamation of everything I have already read before. It was a good amalgamation but an amalgamation nonetheless. A certain staleness permeated this book and I couldn't shake the many references and comparisons I drew to the other powerhouses in this category.My initial thought was to give this book 3 stars but I am currently just over half way through Prodigy (the 2nd book in the trilogy) as I am writing this and it is this book's saving grace! It is a far superior read, in my humble opinion, and I would happily reread Legend 100 times over just to read this book again. I feel like the author has undergone a huge maturation in her writing skill and there is such a noticeable difference in the quality of each book. I can't wait to read the third installment.
