I just finished Marie Lu's Legend this weekend. It's the first book in a trilogy, and I love trilogies. It aids the illusion that I'm reading about real people. I really enjoyed the unique feel of this Dystopian novel. If I had to label it, I'd say it felt a bit animé. The two young protagonists, Day and June, were both quick thinking, agile fighters that I imagined in comic book glory. While young and vulnerable in some ways, they were both larger-than-life in others. They drew me in and I stayed up too late to get to the end. I then berated myself for not already putting Prodigy on hold at the library, and dove to my computer to add it to my list.

INTERESTING FACT: the author, Marie Lu, is an artist herself. Here are some of her own renditions of June and Day.
INTERESTING RUMOR: Legend may join the ranks of young adult novels hitting the big screen.
