Bokrecension: Legend (Legend #1)

Författare: Marie Lu
Utgivningsår: 2011
Mitt betyg: 8/10 
Handling: What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic's wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic's highest military circles. 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.

I really enjoyed Legend! It was filled with action, and I never found myself bored while reading it. 
My favorite character was definitely Day! He was interesting, funny and I just liked him. June however I really didn't like in the beginning. She just felt like a snotty, annoying kid who didn't know anything about anything. But towards the ending her character developed and now I like her. 
The book was a tiny bit predictable, and the romance was kinda insta-love-ish. But it honestly didn't bother me that much! 

I really look forward to seeing how this story develops in Prodigy, and I recommend Legend to every dystopia-junkie out there ;)
