Day, the champion of the people, the one who can’t bear to see those around him suffer on his behalf, who would gladly give his life for those he loves.
First off, this isn’t going to have any spoilers for Champion, but since it is the third and final book in the Legend series, there will probably be some spoilers for the first two books, Legend & Prodigy. Seriously though, if you haven’t read those yet why are you even here? I mean, thanks for stopping by and all, but are you trying to ruin this for yourself? Run along, and return when it is safe.
Okay. So, it’s no secret that there are a number of dystopian trilogies that are ending this year. Also not a secret, dystopians are like the hardest series to end in the first place. Most are set in extremely political times, and there are multiple plots and subplots and by the end of a mere three books all of these things are going to need to be resolved.
Apparently that is much easier than it sounds. But you better believe Marie Lu took her best crack at it. It wasn’t as action packed as the previous two books, but there were extenuating circumstances that made it justifiable. We do get an occasional ‘running’ scene, and those are my absolute favorite. I feel like Lu is really in her element when she is writing action. It is so fluid and believable that you are right there.
We still have the Day/June dual perspective, and I still love it. The relationship that Day has with Eden gets more developed as we get more interactions between them. On the flip side, in June’s narrative, we get more Anden. So, take what you will from that.
It’s really hard to talk about without spoiling, and if you have read the first two, there is no way you aren’t reading this one. Let’s be honest.
But, when your done just click on this spoilery fun link and we can talk/rant together, k?
Also, quotes! BAM!
