Product Description


Praise for CHAMPION:

Remains masterfully true to its themes of loyalty, necessity, and dreams, eschewing any easy outs that the plot could offer.”
This exhilarating finale to the dystopian Legend trilogy delivers on the promises of the genre without ever being predictable about details. Ever respectful of the capacity of its readers, this series offers a satisfying conclusion of potential rather than a neatly wrapped denouement.”
Don’t miss the first two books in Marie Lu’s New York Times bestselling trilogy: LEGEND and PRODIGY!
Praise for LEGEND:
“Fine writing and excellent execution. Sequel, please!”

Legend doesn’t merely survive the hype, it deserves it.”
“Marie Lu’s dystopian novel is a ‘Legend’ in the making.”
“an action-packed love story full of inventive details.”
Lu’s debut is a stunner. . . raises hopes high for the sequels to come. ”
 “A gripping thriller in dystopic future Los Angeles. This is no didactic near-future warning of present evils, but a cinematic adventure featuring endearing, compelling heroes.”
 “[D]elicious details keep pages turning . . . you’ve got the makings for a potent sequel.”
 “A fast-paced blend of action and science fiction (with only a hint of potential romance) means that this one will likely appeal to male and female readers alike.  Debut author Lu has managed a great feat—emulating a highly successful young adult series while staying true to her own voice. Legend will give Hunger Games fans something worthwhile to read.”
 “This book stands out . . .”
FROM KAMI GARCIA, New York Times bestselling co-author of the Beautiful Creatures trilogy
“A romantic thriller set in a post-apocalyptic world where nothing is what it seems—Legend is impossible to put down and even harder to forget.”
FROM SARAH REES BRENNAN, author of The Demon Lexicon trilogy
“A compelling dystopic world, with diverse characters, high tension and political intrigue. [If] you liked the Hunger Games, you'll love this.”
Praise for PRODIGY:
“Marie Lu has beaten the curse with Prodigy. . . it has all the chivalry of Robin Hood and all the shine and grime of Blade Runner . . . The well-drawn worlds, political undercurrents and the believability of the characters make it all feel fresh . . . Lu proves that a Book 2 needn't play second fiddle, providing intrigue and deep pleasure all its own.”
“. . . clear your calendar to allow yourself the luxury of reading this book in one or two sittings. You will be shaken . . .”
 “Lu opts for a high simmer of intrigue in her sequel to Legend…taut and insightful.”
Stunning follow-up to Legend . . . The thrilling action and futuristic settings are sure to please fans of Divergent.”

His whole family has finally been brought back together. There is only three holes left in his life. One is for his dead family; the other is for Tess for he has no idea where she is. The final is the one left by June. Even though he is bad for her, after all does he not have only months left to live? Yet no matter all the cons and reasons why they should not be together, Day has fallen head over heels for June, and not amount of time or distance can change that. Yet can he tell her one more time how much he loves her, or is it too late?

Yet June accepting the role of one of three Princeps-Elect, and her job is filled by looking after the Elector Primo Anden. Yet when Anden want to take their relationship into the “more-than-friends” zone, June gets distant. And when Day comes back into her life, by her leaving a trap, her heart goes into knots. Even though she knows she loves him, she is the whole reason why it is only him and Eden left. Yet she truly does love him.

I've got to say, after the horrible disappointment Requiem (the last book of the Delirium trilogy) added with Allegiant, which was so awful I just wanted to hurl the book at the wall, I was really scared to read Champion. Mockingjay wasn't a fantastic ending either - were most dystopian series doomed to end badly? I was starting to wonder. However, I had already read Legend and Prodigy (plus I own them,) and when I saw Champion's rave reviews on, I knew it was safe to read it. Well, I have to say, Champion was a great conclusion to a great trilogy.

Legend is not my favourite dystopian series. It's not that I didn't love the world it was written in or that the author isn't a great writer, it's just that at the start of the series, our main characters were FIFTEEN and I'm sorry but that's super young. June didn't even turn 16 until Champion. I found it to be very unrealistic that two 15-year-old kids could do all this on their own. I still don't buy into it at all, but I managed to more or less overlook that. I did NOT manage to overlook 20-year-old Anden kissing 15-year-old June (disgusting much?) But the only real flaw to this series is the ages of June and Day (oh yeah, and that previously-mentioned kissing scene.) I'm so glad I picked up this series because I loved its dystopian world and June and Day are both very well-written characters. I love that their romance wasn't insta-love or saying "I love you more than anything" before the second book. No, June is indirectly responsible for the death of Day's family, and even in this book, that still haunts him. Good, it's not realistic for him to be able to get over that.

In Champion, we get to visit Antarctica, which sounded so fascinating and I wish that country had been explored more because wow, it's really cool!

The book was a thrilling read, despite some unrealistic plot lines and parts in the book that was drawn out and maudlin. The ending was not what I had hoped for, but original and bittersweet. I definitely felt some pain that it ended the way it did. Marie Lu has a great way of telling Day and June's romance that really makes the readers FEEL like they're a part of it - not to mention, the action and suspense scenes were brilliant. I highly recommend this book, and the entire trilogy!

I enjoyed the wrap up of this story. It tied up the ends fairly well. Wondered what happened to the "3rd escapee" though.
