Next in My Bookbag: Legend by Marie Lu

Legend CoverLu has written a dramatic story that revolves around two very dynamic, intelligent characters. It speaks of a world divided by ideology, power (or the want thereof), and the worth (or lack thereof) given to a life.

June and Day are from different worlds, but yet they are so alike. This book is a great introduction to each of them. Lu paints each of them layer upon layer until they are well-rounded, complex characters. It takes a masterful hand to make sympathetic characters of both June and Day, especially given the circumstances and progression of the story.

Though these two characters are drawn to one another, I would not classify this story as a romance. It has potential to lead to romance in sequels, but I feel that this book is better classified as an action/adventure/dystopian work. This book is enjoyable to read even though parts of it are dark and sad. There are many questions yet unanswered, so I look forward to reading Prodigy to see what happens next. This book gets a strong 4 stars.
