Legend

Publisher: Puffin Books

Review

June and Day represent the two extremes of a dystopian, post-apocalyptic society in North America. One is privileged, a gifted soldier destined for greatness in the ruling military hierarchy. The other is disadvantaged, the most wanted criminal in the Republic fighting for the survival of his family. Both are highly intelligent and fiercely driven.

A chance meeting when June is undercover looking for her brother's killer leads to an irresistible and unexpected alliance and the exposure of the shocking truth about how the military really keeps control.

Dual narrators give depth and perspective to an insightful and gripping futuristic adventure. With elements of romance, political intrigue and state-sanctioned violence, this first installment of a dystopian trilogy has something for everyone.
