Champion by Marie Lu
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Champion by Marie Lu is the epic conclusion to the Legend series.
Summery from Goodreads:
June and Day have sacrificed so much for the people of the Republic—and each other—and now their country is on the brink of a new existence. June is back in the good graces of the Republic, working within the government’s elite circles as Princeps-Elect, while Day has been assigned a high-level military position.
But neither could have predicted the circumstances that will reunite them: just when a peace treaty is imminent, a plague outbreak causes panic in the Colonies, and war threatens the Republic’s border cities. This new strain of plague is deadlier than ever, and June is the only one who knows the key to her country’s defense. But saving the lives of thousands will mean asking the one she loves to give up everything.
I thought June and Day were not as complex of characters as they were in the first book. Day is just trying to survive, but along the way he becomes duller. It was nice to see him in action again, though. June has become a play piece of the government. She is stuck as Priceps- Elect and away from Day. I do like her decision at the end, however.
This book picked up a lot faster than Prodegy. It had a faster beginning which caused the whole book to seem better.
I loved the ending. It was sweet and perfect.
There was a lot of political action in this book. I really didn't like that, because it made the plot confusing and less action packed. It did however, explain some of the flaws in the Republic.
Overall, this is a good and interesting read.
