My favorite book on earth!! I recommend that everyone reads this series. I read the first book in a day and then had to wait for the next two to come out. It's captivating, and the relationship between June and Day is tastefully thrown in without getting in the way of the action of the book. It's my favorite!

I love this book the next few books not as much. But this book is so good and has a very unexpecting ending to the trilogy than I have ever read. So if you want to read something new with an unexpected ending than read the series.

Amazing. Fantastic. Brilliant. Stunning. All apt words to describe this book. The 2 different POVs worked very well together. This book is one you can't put down. It's one of the best YA books out there

This trilogy is so great. It's science fiction so if you don't like that this is definitely not your trilogy. I can't even put into words how great this book is.

Just finished reading this book, and boy, am I addicted! If you like dystopian novels like The Hunger Games or Divergent, this is definitely a series for you!

It's fast paced and has an excellent futuristic world. The story centers around the corrupt and war torn Republic of America's greatest student, June, and their biggest criminal.

This is my favorite book of all time! It shows the POV of both of the main characters. This way you can see how to feel and have more understanding, than a normal one-sided narrative. I would absolutely recommend this book.

Review for: Legend (Marie Lu's Legend Series #1)
I didn't think I could find a book series that could be comparable to The Hunger Games trilogy but with a different atmosphere and feel, and boy was I wrong. This series has easily become one of my all time favorites- dystopian, exciting, lustful! I highly recommend it to both young adults and even middle aged readers who have a soft spot for adventure and dystopian novels.

Been considering easing this series.... I am 27 years old and love the dystopian romance and action genre. Would it be worth the read for an adult? Or mainly just a teen book?
