Product description

Review

Praise for Marie Lu's "New York Times" bestseller "LEGEND"
From "ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY"
"Fine writing and excellent execution. Sequel, please!"
From "THE NEW YORK TIMES"
""Legend" doesn't merely survive the hype, it deserves it."

From "USA"" TODAY"
"Marie Lu's dystopian novel is a 'Legend' in the making."

From "THE LOS ANGELES TIMES"
"an action-packed love story full of inventive details."

STARRED REVIEW from PUBLISHERS WEEKLY:
"Lu's debut is a stunner. . . raises hopes high for the sequels to come. "

STARRED REVIEW from "KIRKUS REVIEWS"
"A gripping thriller in dystopic future Los Angeles. This is no didactic near-future warning of present evils, but a cinematic adventure featuring endearing, compelling heroes."

STARRED REVIEW from "BOOKLIST"
"[D]elicious details keep pages turning . . . you've got the makings for a potent sequel."

STARRED REVIEW from "VOYA"
"A fast-paced blend of action and science fiction (with only a hint of potential romance) means that this one will likely appeal to male and female readers alike. Debut author Lu has managed a great feat--emulating a highly successful young adult series while staying true to her own voice. "Legend" will give "Hunger Games" fans something worthwhile to read."

STARRED REVIEW from "LIBRARY MEDIA CONNECTION"
"This book stands out . . ."

FROM KAMI GARCIA, "New York Times" bestselling co-author of the Beautiful Creatures trilogy
"A romantic thriller set in a post-apocalyptic world where nothing is what it seems--"Legend" is impossible to put down and even harder to forget."

FROM SARAH REES BRENNAN, author of The Demon Lexicon trilogy
"A compelling dystopic world, with diverse characters, high tension and political intrigue. [If] you liked the Hunger Games, you'll love this."
-------------------------------------

"A fine example of commercial fiction with razor-sharp plotting, depth of character and emotional arc, 'Legend' doesn't merely survive the hype, it deserves it."--"The New York Times" "'Legend' is taut and exciting."--"Los Angeles"" Times" Marie Lu's dystopian novel is a 'Legend' in the making."--"USA"" Today" * "Lu's debut is a stunner."--"Publishers Weekly", starred review * ."..the delicious details keep pages turning..." --"Booklist "starred review * "Many dystopian books are hitting the shelves, but this book stands out."--"Library Media Connection", starred review ."..cinematic adventure featuring endearing, compelling heroes." --"Kirkus Reviews" ."..a well-written, emotionally satisfying read..."--VOYA---
