☆☆☆☆☆5 LEGENDARY STARS!☆☆☆☆☆

You can find the full review and more about this book on my blog!

Okay so before I start this review I want to say that I missed reading dystopians.The last one I read in June I think and this one reminded me how cool are they,and how much I enjoy this genre.Such a fresh book for these rainy cloudy days.Awesome!



____________________________________________
“I don't know if anyone's ever told you this", he begins. He doesn't blush, and his eyes don't dart away. Instead I find myself staring into a pair of oceans - one perfect, the other blemished by that tiny ripple. "You're very attractive."

I've been complimented on my appearance before. But never in his tone of voice. Of all the things he's said, I don't know why this catches me off guard. But it startles me so much that without thinking I blurt out, "I could say the same about you." I pause. "In case you didn't know."

A slow grin spreads across his face. "Oh, trust me. I know.”

The book was badassy greatly thrilly epic.I enjoyed every bit of it.It was also confusing because when I think about the characters,they are only fifteen and they are like Einstein smart and Bruce Lee strong,and when I was their age I didn't even know how to boil an egg.Way to build my self-esteem.But come on that's why I am a reader.To read about things that seem so unbelievable to achieve,but in the end proving that everything is possible.That's why I love reading.



____________________________________________
“You're brilliant,"he says."But you're a fool to stay with someone like me."
I close my eyes at the touch of his hand."Then we are both fools.”

____________________________________________

description

So where to start?...I read this one in 2 days.It's a full action pack filled with thrilling breathtaking scenes,smart decisions,emotions and caring messages.I also enjoyed the romance here.It was different.



____________________________________________
“Forever and ever, kid, until you're sick and tired of seeing me.”

____________________________________________

description

So what I really liked about this book is that the words match characters' age.You don't get to read here about young people quoting like they are 60 years old academics with full degrees,but you have a proper smart fifteen year old conversation between them.Also the way they expressed their emotions and affections it was so awesome,because I was fifteen once and I did the same way(Of course I was not a first class assassin with 1500 points in his trial)



____________________________________________
“If you want to rebel, rebel from inside the system.That's much more powerful than rebelling outside the system.”

____________________________________________

description

The beginning was interesting,like all dystopian books out there,because you get introduced with the world and it's problem and ways they rule things.I must say a lot of dystopians look the same in the beginning to me,because all of them include viruses,or mind controllers,government with people who look nice but they are evil,but I can't complain about that,I enjoyed this book so freaking much.

“The memory fades, and I’m left hanging on to the ghosts of his
words.”

description

The plot if well build.Also the world the author created is awesome and I want to see this book being a movie.It would make a brilliant one,because there are glass breaking,roof jumping,guns and tranquilizer.I mean who doesn't like tranquilizers ,they are like the hipster version of cuffs,because we all know cuffs are way to mainstream.Okay let's not get carried away.As I saw the plot was quite unique and I wouldn't change a thing.



____________________________________________
“June has never looked more beautiful than she does now, unadorned and honest, vulnerable yet invincible.”

____________________________________________

description

The story follows a boy named Day who is the most wanted criminal.Because of his family situation,one day he needs to break in the hospital to get medicine.He does that but heading out he get's in trouble.With officers and guns and everything he manages to get out.Almost at the end of his escape he faces a police captain and to get away he throws a knife to him.He doesn't look back and heads for his sake.In the other side a girl named June is notified that her brother,the captain,was found dead in the hospital and Day is the main suspect.Now she,the girl with the strongest skills,with the highest points in the Trial ever promises to avenge Day,even if it is the last thing she does



____________________________________________
“You try to walk in the light.”

____________________________________________

description

The characters were awesome described.I like reading about them both.And this was one of the first books I saw an equal between the boy and the girl.They were equal in every way possible.That made the book way more interesting.



June

description

June was great.A badass beautiful fifteen year old heroine.She is hell of a smartass also,and she sure knows what she is capable of.



Day

description

Day was also a great character.I liked his sense of humor.He was also strong and too smart for a fifteen year old.



____________________________________________
“My mother used to hope that I would rise up from my humble roots. Become someone sucessful, or even famous. I'm famous all right, but I don't think it's what she had in mind.”

____________________________________________

I recommend this book to every reader out there.Is one of the best books I have read in 2014 and I have read pretty brilliant ones this year.If you want an action pack book with a lot of smart thinking in it , you should pick this up.

Sakina I didn't love Legend...I found it okay due to many factors...one being how Day and June were too perfect for being 15 year olds, but the last two books *sighs* love the series <3

Btw Amazing review with eye-catchy pics! :)
