Legend“If you want to rebel, rebel from inside the system. That’s much more powerful than rebelling outside the system”(Metias, p. 245). Legend is the story of two teens living in a dystopian society who team up to stop the madness going on between the Republic and the Colonies and stop a harmful sickness known as the plague.

After reading Legend, by Marie Lu, I thought it was an amazing book. It was filled with action, suspense, drama, and more. It kept you on the edge of your seat, begging to know what happens next. Marie Lu has a way with her description, that allows you to envision the setting, characters, and plot. I admired the way Legend was written because it showed you both of the character's perspectives and how different they are.

I would strongly recommend this book to readers who love books that are filled with suspense, action, and romance. I would also recommend it to people ages 13 and up because of the violence and romantic scenes.
