REPUBLIC OF AMERICA

OUT OF ALL THE DISGUISES I’VE WORN, THIS ONE might be my favorite.

Dark red hair, different enough from my usual white-blond, cut to just past my shoulders and pulled back into a tail. Green contacts that look natural when layered over my blue eyes. A crumpled, half-tucked collar shirt, its tiny silver but­tons shining in the dark, a thin military jacket, black pants and steel-toed boots, a thick gray scarf wrapped around my neck, chin, and mouth. A dark soldier cap is pulled low over my forehead, and a crimson, painted tattoo stretches all over the left half of my face, changing me into someone unfamiliar. Aside from this, I wear an ever-present earpiece and mike. The Republic insists on it.

In most other cities, I’d probably get even more stares than I usually do because of that giant goddy tattoo—not exactly a subtle marker, I gotta admit. But here in San Francisco, I blend right in with the others. The first thing I noticed when Eden and I moved to Frisco eight months ago was the local trend: young people painting black or red pat­terns on their faces, some small and delicate, like Republic seals on their temples or something similar, others huge and sprawling, like giant patterns of the Republic’s land shape. I chose a pretty generic tattoo tonight, because I’m not loyal enough to the Republic to stamp that loyalty right on my face. Leave that to June. Instead, I have stylized flames. Good enough.

My insomnia’s acting up tonight, so instead of sleeping, I’m walking alone through a sector called Marina, which as far as I can tell is the hillier, Frisco equivalent of LA’s Lake sector. The night’s cool and pretty quiet, and a light drizzle is blowing in from the city’s bay. The streets are narrow, glistening wet, and riddled with potholes, and the buildings that rise up on both sides—most of them tall enough to van­ish into tonight’s low-lying clouds—are eclectic, painted with fading red and gold and black, their sides fortified with enormous steel beams to counter the earthquakes that roll through every couple of months. JumboTrons five or six sto­ries high sit on every other block, blaring the usual barrage of Republic news. The air smells salty and bitter, like smoke and industrial waste mixed with seawater, and somewhere in there, a faint whiff of fried fish. Sometimes, when I turn down a corner, I’ll suddenly end up close enough to the water’s edge to get my boots wet. Here the land slopes right into the bay and hundreds of buildings poke out half submerged along the horizon. Whenever I get a view of the bay, I can also see the Golden Gate Ruins, the twisted remnants of some old bridge all piled up along the other side of the shore. A hand­ful of people jostle past me now and then, but for the most part the city is asleep. Scattered bonfires light alleyways, gathering spots for the sector’s street folks. It’s not that different from Lake.

Well—I guess there are some differences now. The San Francisco Trial Stadium, for one, which sits empty and unlit off in the distance. Fewer street police in the poor sectors. The city’s graffiti. You can always get an idea of how the people are feeling by looking at the recent graffiti. A lot of the messages I’ve seen lately actually support the Republic’s new Elector. He is our hope, says one message scrawled on the side of a building. Another painted on the street reads: The Elector will guide us out of the darkness. A little too opti­mistic, if you ask me, but I guess they’re good signs. Anden must be doing something right. And yet. Every now and then, I’ll also see messages that say, The Elector’s a hoax, or Brain­washed, or The Day we knew is dead.

I don’t know. Sometimes this new trust between Anden and the people feels like a string . . . and I am that string. Besides, maybe the happy graffiti’s fake, painted by propa­ganda officers. Why not?

You never know with the Republic.

Eden and I, of course, have a Frisco apartment in a rich sector called Pacifica, where we stay with our caretaker, Lucy. The Republic’s gotta take care of its seventeen-year-old most-wanted-criminal-turned-national-hero, doesn’t it? I remember how much I distrusted Lucy—a stern, stout, fifty-two-year-old lady dressed in classic Republic colors—when she first showed up at our door in Denver. “The Republic has assigned me to assist you boys,” she told me as she bustled in to our apartment. Her eyes had settled immediately on Eden. “Especially the little one.”

Yeah. That didn’t sit well with me. First of all, it’d taken me two months before I could even let Eden out of my sight. We ate side by side; we slept side by side; he was never alone. I’d gone as far as standing outside his bathroom door, as if Republic soldiers would somehow suck him out through a vent, take him back to a lab, and hook him up to a bunch of machines.

“Eden doesn’t need you,” I’d snapped at Lucy. “He’s got me. I take care of him.”

But my health started fluctuating after those first couple of months. Some days I felt fine; other days, I’d be stuck in bed with a crippling headache. On those bad days, Lucy would take over—and after a few shouting matches, she and I settled into a grudging routine. She does make pretty awe­some meat pies. And when we moved here to Frisco, she came with us. She guides Eden. She manages my medications.

When I’m finally tired of walking, I notice that I’ve wan­dered right out of Marina and into a wealthier neighboring district. I stop in front of a club with THE OBSIDIAN LOUNGE scored into a metal slab over its door. I slide against the wall into a sitting position, my arms resting on my knees, and feel the music’s vibrations. My metal leg is ice-cold through the fabric of my trousers. On the wall across from me, graffiti scrawled in red reads, Day = Traitor. I sigh, take a silver tin from my pocket, and pull out a long cigarette. I run a finger across the SAN FRANCISCO CENTRAL HOSPITAL text imprinted down its length. Prescription cigarettes. Doctor’s orders, yeah? I put it to my lips with trembling fingers and light it up. Close eyes. Take a puff. Gradually I lose myself in the clouds of blue smoke, waiting for the sweet, hallucinogenic effects to wash over me.

Doesn’t take long tonight. Soon the constant, dull head­ache disappears, and the world around me takes on a blurry sheen that I know isn’t only from the rain. A girl’s sitting next to me. It’s Tess.

She gives me the grin I was so familiar with back on the streets of Lake. “Any news from the JumboTrons?” she asks me, pointing toward a screen across the road.

I exhale blue smoke and lazily shake my head. “Nope. I mean, I’ve seen a couple of Patriot-related headlines, but it’s like you guys vanished off the map. Where are you? Where are you going?”

“Do you miss me?” Tess asks instead of answering.

I stare at the shimmery image of her. She’s how I remem­ber from the streets—her reddish-brown hair tied into a messy braid, her eyes large and luminous, kind and gentle. Little baby Tess. What were my last words to her . . . back when we had botched the Patriots’ assassination attempt on Anden? Please, Tess—I can’t leave you here. But that’s exactly what I did.

I turn away, taking another drag on my cigarette. Do I miss her? “Every day,” I reply.

“You’ve been trying to find me,” Tess says, scooting closer. I swear I can almost feel her shoulder against mine. “I’ve seen you, scouring the JumboTrons and airwaves for news, eavesdropping on the streets. But the Patriots are in hiding right now.”

Of course they’re in hiding. Why would they attack, now that Anden’s in power and a peace treaty between the Repub­lic and the Colonies is a done deal? What could their new cause possibly be? I have no idea. Maybe they don’t have one. Maybe they don’t even exist anymore. “I wish you would come back,” I murmur to Tess. “It’d be nice to see you again.”

“What about June?”

As she asks this, her image vanishes. She’s replaced by June, with her long ponytail and her dark eyes that shine with hints of gold, serious and analyzing, always analyzing. I lean my head against my knee and close my eyes. Even the illusion of June is enough to send a stabbing pain through my chest. Hell. I miss her so much.

I remember how I’d said good-bye to her back in Denver, before Eden and I moved to Frisco. “I’m sure we’ll be back,” I’d told her over my mike, trying to fill the awkward silence between us. “After Eden’s treatment is done.” This was a lie, of course. We were going to Frisco for my treatment, not Eden’s. But June didn’t know this, so she just said, “Come back soon.”

That was almost eight months ago. I haven’t heard from her since. I don’t know if it’s because each of us is too hesitant to bother the other, too afraid that the other doesn’t want to talk, or maybe both of us are just too damn proud to be the one desperate enough to reach out. Maybe she’s just not interested enough. But you know how it goes. A week passes without contact, and then a month, and soon t...

Par ItzKell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Yeah, I'm a guy...who cares? (Obsessed with Dystopian Novels...dunno why)

After the extremely disappointing read of Allegiant, and the s***ty conclusion to Divergent, I was pretty worried about the ending to this series, because of what Marie Lu said in an interview, "I hope people still like me after the ending! I'm honestly not entirely sure if I'm going to be getting a lot of hate mail, but we'll see what happens"!; as many people have said, life sucks as it is, we want a good ending :P. Some of the people reading this book might not like the ending...but it gave me a really good feeling as Day said the exact lines in a previous book, not sure if it was Legend or Prodigy, but Marie Lu brought the ending full circle. I bought Legend, Prodigy, and The 5th Wave (apocalyptic novel, great read, 1st book in a trilogy) in July. I read The 5th Wave first, and then I read Legend and Prodigy in two successive days. After the cruel ending/cliffhanger of Prodigy (already had one of these with The Mark of Athena), I was annoyed that I had to wait another 4 months for the final book, BUT IT WAS WELL WORTH THE WAIT!!! Sucks for the people that had to wait longer...

PLEASE DON'T CONTINUE IF YOU DON'T WANT SPOILERS (If you don't want to buy the book, and get a summary of pretty much what happens in the story, you can read below. If not, just read what I wrote above, and get the book for yourself as you won't be disappointed *cough cough* Veronica Roth)

If you read the Preview of Champion, you would know the story starts 8 months after Day left June. Thomas and Commander Jameson are sentenced to death (They escape). So, overall, the story was very good (spent 3 and a half hours reading through all 369 pages), just like Legend and Prodigy. There was a good amount of action, and some amazing scenes that I felt were powerful (one sexual one that was a bit awkward...). So pretty much, we know that the Colonies are going to war again, with the Republic, because of Eden and the stupid plagues. The Republic, tries to get help from other countries, particularly Antarctica. For some reason, Africa (apparently a super power now) has already decided to help the Colonies, and they initiated a surprise attack against the Republic. No doubt, the Republic is going to lose this war, as they have no strong army. Antarctica is apparently one of the most powerful country/continent in the world now, and they can change the weather as they please, change the color of their skyscrapers as they please, and have a built in level system. This level system is actually pretty cool, as you automatically go into the system at the age of 13, and the system tries to make it so you don't do "bad" things. Such as cheating, which gives you -5 points, while doing simple things such as bowing down to higher ups give you +1, and watering a plant gives you +1 points. June goes on and on about how advanced Antarctica is about, but unfortunately, the Republic cannot get Antarctica's help, unless they find a cure to stop the disease that has spread, or if the Republic is willing to give up Dakota (greatest land territory in the Republic).

The story continues, where pretty much Day is torn up about loving June, since she's the person that technically caused the death of many of his family members, and June is torn up with Day, because she hates the fact that every time he sees her, he'll also see the pain she has caused for him. Pretty much, in one scene, Day just goes to June and says that "billions of people will come and go, but no one will ever be like you". Since he's dying, he regrets this, so he then asks if June loves him. If she doesn't, he can finally let go, and it'll be ok if he dies, but June says she does love him, and then they pretty much spend the night together. In the morning, Day thinks that June is still sleeping, even though she's not. Day leaves to go to his old house, where he grew up, and he's so torn up about his feelings, that he just goes to where his old room was, and starts crying his eyes out, knowing that he'll always love June, but he'll always see the pain she's caused. June follows him secretly, and only sees that he's crying (she's smart though, Lu gives you the impression that she knows everything Day's thinking).

The story goes on, and pretty much, without Antarctica's help, the Republic will fall, so Day comes up with the idea of a fake surrender, and then attacking the Colonies where it hurts. This is because the leader of the Colonies somehow hacked into the Republic's frequencies, and contacted Day, and told him that pretty much, if Day helps the Colonies win the war, everyone Day loves will be spared, but if he doesn't, June dies, Eden dies, Tess dies, etc. Meanwhile, the plague is still destroying the lives of many people, and Day has agreed to let Eden help the people by trying to find a cure. However, we figure out that Eden is not Patient Zero of the new strain of disease (you also find out that the Colonies created this new plague to make a fake outrage. There was never going to be a peace treaty, they wanted to win the war all along. Commander Jameson was helping them the entire time). However, in Prodigy, June was sick, when she and Day went over to the Colonies. June believes that this is the other side of the disease the Colonies used to create the new string, and it turns out she's correct. They find a somewhat cure. So the fake surrender happens, and Day gets everyone in the cities to rally behind him, and fighting the Colonies at every turn (I'm leaving out small details). Eventually, the Colonies fight back, and...

Pretty much, what happens is that Commander Jameson escaped her trials (I mentioned this earlier). She's on top of a rooftop with some other soilders of the Colonies, and she's sniping down all the Republic soilders down below. This part is narrated from June's point of view. June pretty much says that "something of interest" catches Jameson's attention. Someone's charging below toward Eden, and of course it's Day.

I had an Allegiant flashback...

Jameson starts aiming her sights on Day, and she shoots but misses, and she shoots but misses again. Day has retrieved Eden at this time, but then Jameson shoots again. June says that a "shriek of pain from a voice I knew all too well erupted below". Jameson shoots again, hitting Day one more time, and then June shoots her...but misses. So pretty much, Day's been shot twice, and now Jameson is trying to kill June. In the end, June throws her off the building, but Jameson catches June as well...so June is dangling over the edge with Jameson clutching to some of the building's support. June yells at the soldiers below to shoot Jameson, and Jameson says "I knew you couldn't kill me yourself". Jameson gets shot, and June's alright.

June's on the ground running over to Day, and then she holds him up, while he's bleeding to death. After Day loses consciousness, June screams about how cruel fate is, and that after everything they've been through, they deserve each other. June makes a deal with "God". She pretty much prays and says that she's willing to sacrifice anything for Day to stay alive.

Well, sure enough, Day stays alive...after being in a coma for many months. One day, she's waiting outside his hospital room like she does everyday, and a doctor comes out saying that Day's awake. The bad news is that Day has slight amnesia, and doesn't remember much of what has happened in the last few years, so pretty much Day has no clue who June is. However, the doctor says that there's a decent chance that Day will remember sooner or later, if people help him with his memories (Eden, and Tess). June goes into see Day, but Day just sits there looking at her like she's a stranger. June goes on for a few pages about how much pain she's caused Day, and that this is her one chance to not hurt him...so she lies to him and tells him that she's just a person sent from the Republic to see how well he's doing. He obviously believes her. We find out that in a bit, Day and Eden go to live in Antarctica because Eden's very smart in construction, mechanics, and building structures...and now we get to the epilogue.

10 YEARS LATER

We find out that it's June's 27th birthday, and that in her past birthdays, she's dated the Elector for a few years, but then broke up with him because she could never love him the way she loves Day. However, this birthday is hard for her, because Metias died when he was 27, and now she's going to be the same age as him. Tess and June are good friends now, and June was going to go over to her house for dinner that night, and Tess told her that if she watched the news, she would be in for a surprise. Naturally, June watches the news, and finds out that Eden is coming back to work for the Republic, and so Day would be coming with him. As June walks on the road to Tess's apartment/house, she sees two tall figures, one jabbering on about stuff (Eden), and one that's listening intently. She notices that it's Eden and Day, but she doesn't want to hurt Day again, so she doesn't say anything as she walks past them two. However, as she walks past, Day turns to look at her, and asks her if she knows him. She says no, but then he's like "I swear I know you". After a few more moments of looking at her, he says "I remember you". June looks at him, and she narrates that when she looks into Day's eyes, there are no more painful glances, and that there is a scar that is healed. So pretty much Day has somewhat forgiven June. Day says, "It's you", and June replies "Is it?". Day then goes on and says "There's a fog around you, that I would like to clear". June says that she doesn't want to be the first person to do anything, and that she's getting anxious, but finally Day reaches out and shakes her hand.

"Hi," he says. "I'm Daniel"
"Hi," I reply. "I'm June"

FULL CIRCLE!!!

A fitting ending to this masterpiece trilogy by Marie Lu. I really hope she gives us a short story like maybe a few years after (like the prequel, but a short sequel)... NOW GO MAKE SOME BABIES :D!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful Conclusion to the Legend Series. 6 novembre 2013
Par Robin Snyder - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
4.5 Star Rating for Champion
4 Star Rating for the complete Legend Series

After a few very disappointing endings to dystopian trilogies this year...Requiem I'm still upset and Allegient you're still in the corner, you know what you did....I was worried that Marie Lu would follow that trend. OMG thank god she didn't. Marie Lu actually remembered what her trilogy was about and stayed very true to the meaning of the overall story. Yes, there are heartbreaking moments, tragedies, sacrifices but they were all believable and well within what I thought the characters would do. Honestly this was not one of my favorite dystopian series going into Champion. But Marie Lu has completed a very strong series overall and the last book in the series is my favorite.

There is something for everyone in this series. It has enough action to keep things entertaining, a sweet complicated romance aspect, love of family, honor, duty, struggles, heroism and sacrifice.

- "What's the point of keeping in touch with the girl you're crazy about, when you're dying?" - Day

Champion starts out eight months after Prodigy ended. Day and June haven't really talked after their tear filled break up. Day is still hiding that he is sick, but can't get June out of his mind even after all this time. He is still fiercely protective of his little brother Eden who is still recovering after getting a mutated version of the plague. Anden is desperate to convince Day to let the republic use Aden to try and make a vaccine since the plague is now going through the colonies and the republic will soon be under attack if they can't provide a cure. June is caught in the middle as she can see both Day and Anden's side of the argument. June will protect Day as much as she can since she still feels responsible for the death of his mother and brother.

In Prodigy we learned that the colonies while different than the republic might not be better. A country run completely by corporations still had so many issues that it wasn't the perfect haven some had expected it to be. The republic is broken and Anden needs some outside help if they want a chance of holding out against the colonies. Anden and June go to Antarctica in search of an alliance but the price they ask is steep. I liked how the culture of Antarctica was represented. We have seen a republic pretty much ruled by a dictator, the colonies ruled by corporations and now Antarctica which is based mostly on a reward system similar to a video game. It was a very interesting concept and I liked the visualization of it.

The main storyline of the republic becoming more than it was under the regime of Anden's father and being broken but change taking some time was steady with what I expected from the trilogy. June and Day's continued involvement against the new threat was engrossing and I felt like they were both in real danger multiple times. Day got to go back to his roots from Legend where he pulled stunts for the republic now against the colonies instead of the other way around. June really grows into the woman she is going to be. There are some very hard choices she makes and her emotions sometimes broke my heart as she struggle to do the right thing.

Some people get to redeem themselves against the mistakes made in Legend and Prodigy while others continue down more destructive paths. Thomas and June had quite a moment in the book reliving the death of Matias and it is a very well written argument where you could see the motivations behind what Thomas did even if you can't forgive his betrayal. He really did strive protect the republic in his own twisted way.

There is also some good time spent on the June/Day relationship. Their lives have been intertwined in love and pain. Each trying desperately to do what is best for the other.

- "Do you have any idea," He says in a soft broken hoarse whisper, "Do you know how, how badly I wish?" He pulls away long enough to look me desperately in the eyes. "If you don't love me, just say it. You have to help me. It would probably be for the best. It would make it easier to stay away from you. Wouldn't it?" - Day to June

June really proves how unconditionally she loves Day how much she is willing to sacrifice for him. It was beautiful and heartbreaking.

Marie Lu gives us a look 10 years in the future at the end and I think that ties up all the loose ends rather well. I liked how the entire story really comes full circle. The last chapter is really beautiful and full of Hope for a better future.

This book was such a sweet relief after finishing the Divergent series and being utterly disappointed. Lu did a fantastic job wrapping up this story and now I'm just sad it's over. Definitely worth the wait :)

In the final book of the Legend trilogy, the Colonies and the Republic go to war and June and Day are chosen to help lead the Republic.

I picked up this trilogy becuase of Amazon recommendations and absolutely loved the first book. It reminded me a bit of Divergent in the sense where the was a lot of action, drama, twists and turns, and some romance. the second one, i liked, but i had hoped for more. the first one set such a strong tone that i expected that to carry over. I had hoped that this book would make up for what i missed in the 2nd book. Unfortunately that didnt really happen.

The big fight sequence was very short that i wished that Lu would have made this part longer. The whole book built up to this big fight coming, but nothing really came, except for that one fight that lasted a few pages. I had hoped for more battle sequences especially because i love the way that Lu writes them.

unlike what some other people might say about the ending, i did like it. it shows the side effects of what can happen in a war, but there is a silver lining. i am an optimist at heart and i like it when the ending has a sweet, even if it's bittersweet, ending. There was no big questions left unsaid, especially involving June and Day's relationship. i like that Lu did give that part a finality feeling.

overall, it was an ok ending for the book, but i had expected more. perhaps i have been used to all these dramatic endings, that when an ending like this comes along, it leaves me disappointed. my opinion may change a few months from now if/when i re-read it, but for now this is where it stands.

Let me start by saying that I just love the ending of this book. It is bittersweet yet understandable. For a Dystopia book, this is something I would expect with a happy ever after… event if it takes time! Now, the action, HOLY MOTHER OF ALL ACTIONS! I was on edge reading this book! Marie Lu blew me away with all the actions going on! I felt like I was watching a movie, one you cannot blink or else you would miss an important scene. I cried, I laughed, and yeah I enjoyed my time reading.

You know the characters from the previous books of this series. You know you love them, but this book will make you fall hard for Day. The devotion of his love toward June is just to admire. He will do anything she will ask, even if it breaks him.

“Billions of people will come and go in this world,” he says softly, “but there will never be another like you.”

God, Marie Lu broke my heart many times in this book! I love how Day is the one that shows all the emotions (so not typical for a guy) while June is more of a “robotic” type of gal. So when she realizes she is in love with him, I just couldn’t help but grin like a fool!

I know June loves Day, but I just couldn’t understand why she asked so much of him. In my opinion, she went too far, she kind of took advantage of him. I know it was for a good cause, but my heart just couldn’t understand. I did however, loved the part when she cries out to a higher power. That part just twisted my heart.

“I throw this prayer into the sky with every shred of strength I have left”.

I was consumed with grief.

This prayer was everything.

This prayer was perfect.

(And I’m crying again).

In my honest opinion, this is the perfect ending for a dystopian series. There are many ways Marie Lu could've ended this series but I believe she chose the perfect one.

I recommend this book to everyone! Definitely a must read. (Excuse me while I go wipe my tears). - Leydy
