Respect the Legend. Idolize the Prodigy. Celebrate the Champion. But never underestimate the Rebel.

Eden Wing has been living in his brother’s shadow for years. Even though he’s a top student at his academy in Ross City, Antarctica, and a brilliant inventor, most people know him only as Daniel Wing’s little brother.

A decade ago, Daniel was known as Day, the boy from the

“We’ve seen each other only once after a decade apart. What if we’ve changed too much? What if we’re just not meant to be?”

I had my doubts when Rebel was first announced and lemme tell you, those doubts were well-warranted.

Legend was meant to be a trilogy. Champion ends on the perfect note: Day and June meeting each other again after a decade apart. When they grasp hands, that connection strong as magic between them, the reader knows that, even though this is the last page, they will

I need to re-read the trilogy the next year. It'll be hard and a ride full of emotions but I'll do it.

I'm excited for this new book and the series. I've always had questions about what happened with June (my love) and Day after they reunited in Champion and I don't know how many answers I'll get from this book but I'll be reading this.

AHHHH!!! I'm getting emotional just thinking about this.

Friendddds. Day. And June. And Eden. Their story isn't over.

This book was like a freaking gift! I loved how the Legend series ended, but I always wanted more, needed more, and I finally freaking got it!

This one has perspectives from my boy, Daniel AKA Day, and his little bro, Eden. Eden was so young in the last one and I loved his character, so it was awesome to see how he turned out. He isn't like Daniel in a lot of ways, but he's brave like him! And he's so smart, too!

I will say that the highlights for me were when June and Daniel were together!

Why is no one talking about this cover?

While it does look good, why doesn't it match the other covers?

"I'm grateful that we still, in spite of everything, have all found each other ... sometimes, broken pieces find a way to make a new whole."

It pains me to give such a low rating to this novel, but ... I expected so much more. The Legend trilogy holds so much nostalgia for me, being that it was one of the first Young Adult series that I ever read. With that being said, I couldn't help but feel that this one wasn't even close to performing on the same stage as its predecessors. Champion

"Because sometimes, broken pieces find a way to make a new whole."

This should've been a novella.

I didn't have high hopes for this because the Legend series is so nostalgic for me and I couldn't see anything topping the ending we got in Champion. Yet, I'm still kind of let down. I don't hate Rebel, but there are parts of it that rubbed me wrong and I don't see myself rereading it within the new few years.

My main problem is with the perspective of Eden. For those of you who don't know, the

We held our breaths when we read Legend, got at the edge of our seats when we read Prodigy, then our hearts were broken but got eventually repaired when we read Champion. Now prepare to do that all over again with Rebel.

I read the first three books a few years after Champion was released. It was just a trilogy back then and I thought that it ended on a perfect note - an open but hopeful ending. So when Marie Lu announced that she's going to publish a fourth book I was a bit skeptical.

I loved Day

So long I have suffered from the Champion epilogue... Will I finally have a satisfying conclusion?????

Ok, so umm, quick confession.

I’m in love with Day and June


So yeah anyway, I’m a little bit obsessed and I would read a book where it’s just the two of them to be frank.

My experience reading Rebel can be summed up a little like this.

Scenes with solo Eden - Pretty cool kid

Scenes with Eden and Pressa - I like them

Scenes with solo Day - My boy is back

Scenes with Day and June being in love - AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

I should probably go see a therapist

Now enough of me stressing out

[2.5/5 stars] I remember loving the original Legend Trilogy. In hindsight, however, I think I rated it so highly because I was only comparing it to other YA dystopians. Of the dozens I tried at the time, Legend ranked close to the top of my list. I don’t know that I would have been so generous with my ratings had I honesty compared them to all books I enjoyed and not just that very specific branch of the YA market.

Rebel was just okay. The plot was cute, extending the romance between June and

“It’s my brother. Daniel. His eyes are trained on my attackers. And right now, the smirk on his lips is the dangerous kind.
I groan and hang my head.
Oh, hell.”

I seriously loved diving back into the world of Daniel and June!

“Because sometimes, broken pieces find a way to make a new whole.”

Rebel is the continuation to the Legend trilogy. Situated 10 years in the future. In a new city. We follow Daniel and his brother Eden while they try to pick the pieces of their former lives and move on.

Obviously, after so many years discovering that Legend was to have a sequel of sorts was so incredibly exciting. After all, it was an opportunity to see our beloved characters again. And after the epilogue in

One of the first reviews I ever wrote on the blog back in 2015 was for the first book in the Legend series which I read originally in 2011, aptly names ‘Legend‘. If you have never read the books, they are dystopian YA reads featuring two main characters, June and Day. June was born into a wealthy area once know as Western USA and Day into the slums who grew up to become one of the countries most wanted criminals.

Look what is happening here:

Author Marie Lu is continuing the story of her million-selling “Legend” series.

Lu has agreed to a multimillion dollar, three-book deal with Roaring Brook Press, the publisher announced Friday. The first book is set 10 years after her third “Legend” installment, “Champion,” which came out in 2013. Currently untitled and scheduled for Fall 2019, the upcoming novel will again feature such characters as young Eden Bataar Wing and take place in the dystopian

I don’t know how to feel about this. I’m going to read it because hello, it’s Marie Lu, and I really liked the Legend trilogy, but this same thing happened to the Shatter Me trilogy and look at all the problems I’ve had with Restore Me. I guess I’ll just keep my fingers crossed for this one?

Though I’m LOWKEY EXCITED that this takes place in ANTARTICA!! My favorite world building ever

@my fellow Marie Lu fans on here, you're all wonderful but please stop putting this in my feed and reminding me it comes out in a whole year :'(
I need you to understand that Legend is a trilogy** I absolutely LOVE.

(you won't believe just how, after all these years, reading it still fills me with so much delight and emotion!)

Looking back...
When I first read Legend, it felt insta-lovish and convenient, but there was something about it that took hold of my heart and it did not let go. (I loved it even more after re-reading it along with the sequels.) Then Prodigy made me fall and care for these characters even more, and by Champion my

“Because sometimes, broken pieces find a way to make a new whole.”

Call me a believer because my faith in sequels for series-that-should-have-ended has returned.
My honest opinion of books like these? Fanservice. But! But, Marie Lu did leave a lot of things unfinished at the end of her Legend Trilogy, especially the outcome of June x Day reunion ten years later, so I actually took my skepticism goggles of and decided to give this release a shot as more than just a lengthy

It is not weakness to open your heart.
It does not make you less of a man to to ask for help.
To turn to someone when you're vulnerable.
To need a shoulder to cry on.
You don't have to bear the weight of anything by yourself.
