Note on Legend:
I finished Legend during a 6 hour plane flight. It felt like 3 hours.
Marie Lu takes a great new take on dystopian societies, and although many people compare Legend to Divergent or the Hunger Games, they are nothing alike. Legend talks more about Day and June, rather than whole factions or districts. I would say though, that Legend reminds me of The Pledge by Kimberly Derting, because it gives a lot of insight to the hierarchy system, and what it’s like to be in each of them. It’s a great series, and I can’t wait to see what Day and June’s up to this time.
And here it is…
Proud to wait on:
Prodigy by Marie Lu
Release Date: January 29, 2013
June and Day arrive in Vegas just as the unthinkable happens: the Elector Primo dies, and his son Anden takes his place. With the Republic edging closer to chaos, the two join a group of Patriot rebels eager to help Day rescue his brother and offer passage to the Colonies. They have only one request—June and Day must assassinate the new Elector.
It’s their chance to change the nation, to give voice to a people silenced for too long.
But as June realizes this Elector is nothing like his father, she’s haunted by the choice ahead. What if Anden is a new beginning? What if revolution must be more than loss and vengeance, anger and blood—what if the Patriots are wrong?
Oh wow. It’s a little hard to breathe right now.
What’s your ‘waiting on’ pick this week?
