This triology as a whole was amazingly written and everything comes together. I read all three books in 2 days.

In the first book Legend you get to meet the Characters June and Day, Marie Lu did an amazing job of creating these characters and you can actually picture them. Throughout this book June and Day both lose people they love but they also find new people to love. There is action and adventure and WTF moments. June is a go getter...more

(a Science Fiction Dystopian Trilogy)

I've recently read "The Hunger Games" and, after that, the "Divergent Trilogy" and enjoyed them much (well, they do have some flaws, but what doesn't?). I've decided to try this series after some hesitation and I found it to have more flaws than those. The final book of the series is actually better than the previous ones and you can see how the author is more... mature.

The setting (3,15) is a dystopian futuristic US (during a war...more
Disclaimer: This review is long. As in, the 2,000 words kind of long. You have been warned. Also, the following review is technically a “joint review” of all three books in the Legend trilogy, so I'll post it here and under the boxed set.

First off, I’m really not a fan of a lot of books in the YA genre. Especially, especially, especially the dystopian subgenre. I’ve read The Hunger Games, Divergent, Delirium, Variant (the first one), Ashfall, and Maze Runner trilogies, as well as the Gone series...more
I found this trilogy a bit tiring but I think it may be just that I have reached my saturation limit of teen dystopian romance so I was more critical of it. The book switches back and forth between the girl’s and boy’s perspective but the two characters didn’t have strong enough voices for this to be successful for me. I also had a hard time accepting that such young people would be put in such positions of power. Perhaps if she had made the characters even a few years older I would have found i...more

I was slightly hesitant to read this saga, after the let down in the Divergent saga ending. But, I went with it, and wasn't disappointed. Though there were a few times I found that I'd get lost in what I was reading, I enjoyed the descriptiveness that Marie Lu brought to her books. I liked that there was such emotional stress between June and Day... and seeing how it was all a huge manipulation from those who were in charge. I was a little worried as I neared the end of the final book, Champion,...more
I would definatly recommend this book series. It's fast paced, action packed and definatly worth it. Originally I wasn't sure whether or not to read these books, eventually I tried them, and i am not disappointed. If you love books like the hunger games, divergent.... I would recommend this book series to you. You will not be disappointed!

If you love hunger games, divergent, and eve trilogy. You better read this. There's quote from the Catching Fire "Remember who your enemy is" on the Prodigy. Legend it's slow at the first part but so fasttt in the end. Worth to read.

I'm probably gonna get the whole series tomorrow!!! Im really excited to read the series. Most people say its a amazing series and I'm so exited to read them!!! When I get them I'm going to try an read them in 2-3 days.
Julie Rodriguez
This was an enjoyable series. I love that every chapter kept me engaged and wanting more. I think if there is a film adaptation of the series that Callan McAuliffe should play Day. He is a great actor and charming just like Day. Please Marie Lu take it into consideration.
Loved all three! I only wish that we had more insight on what happened to June and Day after Champion. I read a continuation of their story on Fanfiction.net by Improbable Creature and it was awesome. It almost seemed as if the writer was really in tune with Marie Lu.
Liked it much more than Roth's Divergent series. Better story, better language. Had a feeling it got out of hand with the war scenes - otherwise four stars.
I'll try not to give any spoilers ;)
This book was different from what I expected, it's not lighthearted, doesn't take anything for granted and really wants to portray something as it should be! No easy outs or cheats, no, soldiering on like we would in real life.
The story kept me interested with several story lines running through it, and the ending was a bit of a surprise :) I liked it, maybe there will be snippets in the future, who's to say. But thank you for June and Day, they were fun compa...more

I enjoyed this trilogy much more that the Divergent books.
Almost 4 stars but not quite there for me. How about 3.75.
Loved this book series!!:)

One of my favorites!
Julia Herondale
The Legend Trilogy is one of the best series that I've ever read and I highly recommend it! It contains romance, action, drama, suspense, and everything you could possibly want and hope for in a series. Don't miss out!
11 out 10
Shannon Wagers
A definite must read
Overall this is such a good series! One of the best out there and one of the very few that doesn't deteriorate throughout the trilogy, but in fact it gets better!

The plots are fun, dotted with twists and action and it is a very enjoyable read and hard to put it down! Highly recommendable.

On par with some of the best books around like Hunger Games without a doubt. Excellent reads and look forward to reading more of Marie Lu's books.

A must-read. A triumph. A legend.

Outstanding trilogy and it's one of my favorites now!
awesome! adventure, danger, double crosses!
dystopian military, war, loss, love, betrayal. Lu's story follows the point of view of a badass prodigy and a smart ass fugitive....this is what happens when their lives intersect....

Oh my gosh I'm getting the box set on Monday can't wait.
