Legend by Marie Lu

index.aspxThe first book in a popular YA trilogy, Legend is a futuristic novel where the Republic (originally the western coast of the US) is at war against the neighboring Colonies. The Republic is a military governing body, and fifteen year old June is being trained for a position of importance when her brother Metias is suddenly murdered. The culprit is identified as Daniel Altin Wing or Day, as he is more well known, a fifteen year old “criminal” who is a supporter of the colonies. June is devastated at her brother’s death, and vows to bring Day to justice. However, things are not quite what they seem to be, and June finds herself in a world of confusion as she struggles to do the right thing in avenging her brother’s death. It is a good option for fans of the Divergent series, but for older teens, since the novel contains some violence and cruelty to humans. It is an engaging read, and I plan to read the next title in the series: Prodigy.
