Legend 01

(3)
" Legend doesn't merely survive the hype, it deserves it."
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Young Elites
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.
Full of nonstop action, suspense, and romance, this novel is sure to move readers as much as it thrills.

"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.

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. I don't know where to start. All I can say is that this book was interesting and exciting to read from the first page on. I like the changes bewteen June's and Day's perspective. It gave me a better understanding from their both Point of views. I couldn't put down the book when I started it and it totally desserves 5 out of 5 stars. Like this dystopian Story. and the Setting in Los Angeles. Also reminded me a Little bit of "The Hunger Games".

Tolles Jugendbuch in englischer Sprache
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 11.10.2013

„Legend“ ist ein geniales Buch! Ich war von der ersten Seite weg gefesselt. So spannend und aufregend! Wahnsinn! Das Buch wird aus der Sicht von June und Day geschildert, dadurch erhält man einen besseren Einblick in die Geschichte. Die Ereignisse überschlagen sich und ich war absolut begeistert.... „Legend“ ist ein geniales Buch! Ich war von der ersten Seite weg gefesselt. So spannend und aufregend! Wahnsinn!

Dystopische Romane sind ja momentan sehr im Trend. „Legend“ ist das ideale Buch für „Tribute von Panem“ Fans! Der zweite Teil ist soeben erschienen!!

Smart & Intriguing
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 04.06.2014

After hearing so many good reviews about the "Legend" trilogy by Marie Lu I finally decided to give this series a go and was not disappointed. Day and June are different as can be: June, a prodigy from the rich sectors of the Republic and Day, a rather notorious criminal from the slums wouldn't normally cross paths. But after him killing June's brother she vows to hunt Day down...but is that really all that's to it or might there be something else behind the death of the soldier? I have to admit, that I thought the book to be a little bit slow in the beginning, but its pace picks up as it progresses. The story is really smart and intriguing and, for my taste, ends all too soon. I am looking forward to reading the sequel "Prodigy" and recommend this series to fans of "Divergent" and "The Hunger Games".
