What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic's wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic's highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country's most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.
From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths—until the day June's brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family's survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias's death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths their country will go to keep its secrets.

A little while ago I was cleaning all the dust and papers and shit out from under my bed, and I found a plastic box full of last year's Christmas presents and decs.
You all know how it is. You start off tidying up but then you find something you forgot you had like a Katie Morag book or a recorde...

I'm such a sucker for dystopians. I love the energy, the rush I get from them. When I got my copy of Legend I was thrilled. Now I know I had a good reason to be. This is one of the good ones. A dystopian well worth reading!
We've got two narrators: the notorious criminal, Day, and the noble citize...

15-year-old June is an exceptionally gifted prodigy who is being groomed to become a military star....

4 out of 5 stars. This book fell short of a solid 5 for me because it had two small things I didn’t like, but otherwise it was golden.
What I truly enjoyed:
• Two unique POV’s of the hunter and the hunted –and I love, love, loved that the girl was the one sent to hunt Day, the criminal, as I tend t...

Okay, hypothetical scenario time. Let’s suppose I had the madness, the power ("You ever tried going mad without power? It's boring! No one listens to you!" - Russ Cargill), and the inclination to pit several recently published YA dystopian novels against each other in a brutal and bloody fight to...

4.5 stars. I've been putting this one off forever because I thought I was pretty much over dystopian YA. But friends won't stop raving about this trilogy (still) and... it turns out it IS awesome.
The story has the typical dystopian society with an evil dictator, military control, and gifted teen...
