Marie Lu has written an exciting sequel to “Legend” in this novel. Once again, June and Day take it in turns to tell the story, chapter by chapter; a clever ploy as the two main protagonists are at times separated in their adventures.
Once more the action is fast-paced as June and Day attempt to stay alive and find a future for themselves and their countrymen. It becomes a game of political intrigue as they try and gauge who they can trust because it is clear from the start of this book that they cannot survive on their own. But can the Patriots be trusted to help them or should they simply head for the Colonies? And will their differing backgrounds and past history finally get in their way: can they continue to trust each other and most importantly, can their love survive, especially when their hearts are tested by their relationships with others?
A great blend of action, politics and romance with plenty of twists and turns in the plot to keep readers guessing. Fans of “Legend” will be well satisfied with this sequel.
