3.5 stars. A bit juvenile, like a sort of Hunger Games for teens (oh wait, isn't that for young adults too?). Oh, who cares, I liked both works and this one in book form, so I enjoyed it better. Straightforward, with a few twists, and entertaining. Satisfying ending.

"I’m telling you, Day—all it takes is one generation to brainwash a population and convince them that reality doesn’t exist.”

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

Don’t get me wrong, this is a decent series – it simply isn’t the shining example of dystopian story telling that the raving reviews had me believing.

The trilogy follows the usual format for young adult dystopian tales, offering very little by way of surprises. This, however, is partly due to the fact that I have read far too many books in the genre along with having read a lot of dystopian tales that belong in the adult category. Due to this, it is now hard for such stories to really stand out.

(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.

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

Wow! Just wow! This book series was an intense emotional roller coaster. Love, pain, war, loss, love again, twists and turns. But it was by far the 3rd book that left me in awe. It made me laugh and cry and cry some more! Would 100% recommend it to anyone who loves trilogies and dystopias. p.s. the second book was not that good in my opinion but you need it for certain things that are in the third book. It also explains more about why they are split up.

Action packed? Check. Love story? Check. Suspense? Check.
Instead of writing a diary on how awesome this series was I will simply say that everyone should give it a try. Everyone! I loved it beyond words.

“Each day means a new twenty-four hours. Each day means everything's possible again. You live in the moment, you die in the moment, you take it all one day at a time.”

This was an excellent series. I picked up the first book not knowing what to expect, but I ended up loving it. As I continued reading I was afraid that the next two books in the Legend Trilogy wouldn't be as good as the first one. I was wrong. Each book seemed to get better and better as Day and June developed and changed into lif

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

This series was a solid YA dystopian series. I don't think its on the same level as Maze Runner or Hunger Games but its still worth a read. The books improve as they go with the the final book of the trilogy being the best. Solid characters and the plot/action is very fast paced. I would have liked more depth to the world and story but still recommend to those who like the genre. Probably a 3.5 but I always round up in my rating system.

Dystopian is my absolute weakness, but this series tops the list as my favorite by far! Marie Lu is a literary genius. Her characters, her world, her plot.. Everything is just phenomenal! If you haven't read this series, stop what you're doing and read it right now! I cannot praise these books enough!

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 loved the characters and world building in this series. The third book kind of jumped the shark for me with the romance between June and Day, but overall I enjoyed the story.

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

I could not wait for this to end. I'm book three I considered abandoning a couple times. But I finished so I guess that means it had me hooked somewhat. I'm easily pleased with young adult and dystopian, so to bore me I think says quite a lot. When I think back through what happened across all three.books, it could have just been one single book and cut out so much of the ridiculous dialogues and dreams and past memories, most of which did nothing for the story and bored me. There was definitely ...more

This series was enjoyable. Including the token romance between two main characters. The books created a believable alternate world set in the future and whilst at times predictable was still a good read. The story follows two main characters and their experiences in an unstable world which is constantly under threat by war. It incorporates biological war fare and traditional soldiers and explores the different classes in society showing a huge contrast between the rich and poor.

I am not entirely sure why I made it through all three books. I sort of actually didn't, as I skim read the last 20% or so of book 3. Sorry, Marie. :/
