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.


 Hey I love dystopians so sue me :) Anyway so I finished Legend last week and I have to say loved loved loved it!! The characters June and Day work very well together they are both very strong lead characters for the book and Marie Lu did a great job of developing them throughout the story. The story itself is your typical dystopian corrupt government,rebellion etc. some parts are predictable but it didn't take away from the fun factor and their are quite a few cliffhangers that will keep you guessing and have those OMG moments all in all Legend is a really good book and I can't wait for the second installment in the series!
