Synopsis (Goodreads)
From different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths…

Until June’s brother is murdered, and Day becomes the prime suspect.

In a shocking turn of events, the two uncover what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths to which their country will go to keep its secrets.

Legend is one hell of a start to a trilogy… It was so fast-paced that I didn’t even realise just how quickly I was getting through the book. Before I knew it, I was in the final chapters and really not wanting to get to the end.

One of the main things that I loved about how Lu wrote Legend, was the fact that she didn’t spend chapters and chapters describing the world and the characters. But rather, she left you guessing throughout the book, until she decided to reveal the fact(s) to you.

I cannot wait to move onto Prodigy and Champion to see just what will happen to both Day and June as their stories progress.
