Champion (Legend #3) by Marie Lu

Champion Champion (Legend #3) by Marie Lu.  Published November 5, 2013 by Putnam Juvenile.  CDN $ 11.99 Kindle edition.

He is a Legend. She is a Prodigy. Who will be Champion? 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. (Goodreads Excerpt)

My thoughts?

Ever After OMG

OMG I absolutely loved this book and the whole freaking series. It was emotional and heart wrenching and holy cow I wish there was a sequel. Sigh…I will have to use my imagination. Marie Lu does leave us with a glimmer of hope.

I’m gushing I know…but it was a really great story…so real and…sad/emotional/exhilarating? All of it.

I have to say I am really impressed with the world Marie Lu has created. The story sucks you in right from the start and you see the characters grow and learn and love and…I’m gushing again. Sorry 😉 It is rare but I have to say that this book was as good if not better than the other two. It is full of action and suspense and drama and emotion and and and. I cna’t help it, it was good.

K enough said…go read the books…all of them.

Champion (Legend, #3) Recently Finished:
  Champion (Legend #3) by Marie Lu  Absolutley loved this series.  I really enjoyed the last book. Lots of action and suspense and especially loved the ending.  I will post a review soon.

Scent of Magic (Healer, #2)Currently Reading : Scent of Magic (Healer #2) by Maria Snyder.  I have barely scratched the surface but am loving it anyway.

Up Next?

I don’t know?  That is odd for me.  I am dying to get my hands on Secret (Elemental #4) by Brigid Kemmerer and perhaps The Selection by Kiera Cass? Any advice?

Secret (Elemental, #4)  The Selection (The Selection, #1)

  Forbidden (Amnity Arotos #1) by Amy Miles. I found this on my kindle and when I read the first chapter I was wowed. This book is a different take on the vampire story.  Very well done.  A review is posted here:

Teaser Tuesday (June 3)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser:

I despise my first conversation with Day after eight months of no communication.  I hate it.  When did I become so manipulative? Why must I always use his weaknesses against him?

I haven’t started this yet but I’m really excited to start.  I loved the first two books in the series and I’m hoping this is great.
