Summary:

“After escaping from the Republic’s stronghold of Los Angeles, June and Day arrive in Vegas just as the unthinkable happens: the Elector Primo dies, and his son Anden takes his place. With the Republic edging closer to chaos, the pair joins a group of Patriot rebels eager to help Day rescue his brother and who offer them passage to the Colonies. The Patriots have only one request- June and Day must assassinate the new Elector.

It’s the chance to change the nation, to give voice to a people silenced for too long. But as June realizes this Elector is nothing like his father, she’s haunted by the choice ahead. What if Anden is a new beginning? What if revolution must be more than loss and vengeance, anger and blood? What if the Patriots are wrong?

In this highly anticipated sequel, Lu delivers a gripping, breathtaking thriller with heartbreaking intensity and nonstop action.”

Review:

WOW. All I can say is WOW.

This has to be one of the best (if not the best) sequels I have ever read!

After reading Legend, I had such high expectations going into this book. I am very happy to say that this book was much better than I expected.

This book was filled with action. Twist and turns around every corner. I never knew what was going to happen next. All of these things just made the book amazing.

The romance between June and Day in this book was just heartbreaking. They weren’t together pretty much throughout the  entire book. I kept my hopes up during the time they weren’t together that we would get some romance aspects eventually.At the same time I was kind of glad there wasn’t to much of it in this book. Either way, I still love this romance.

I wasn’t to sure what I thought about the new Elector Primo, Anden. In some scenes, I really enjoyed his character. In other scenes I couldn’t stand him. The way he treated June was great but at the same time, I thought he was kind of interfering with the romance between June and Day. Just because you’re in love with June doesn’t mean she is in love with you.

I had similar thoughts about the character of Tess. I really liked her character in the first book. However in this book, once again I feel that she kind did  interfere with the main romance. I had a feeling that she was in love with day throughout the first two books but I never imagined them becoming a couple. However there was other scenes that I did enjoy her character in. It was kind of sad to see her leave and not join June and Day on their way to the colonies. I kind of hope we get to see her in the last book.

The setting of the Colonies was pretty awesome. The whole time that June and Day were there I never knew what was going to happen. Even though they were only there for a short amount of time, I hope we get to see more of it in the last book.

The ending of this book brought me to tears. I just couldn’t believe what was happening. When Day was told he was dying, I was in shock. At that point, I was wondering how he was going to tell June. Then when he decided to just ended the relationship all together, I couldn’t stop crying. I love them as a couple. I just keep wondering how this is going to affect the plot line going forward.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. To me, it reminds me, in some aspects, of the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth. I’m not sure if I’m ready, but I can’t to read the last book in this fantastic trilogy: Champion.

RATING: 5/5
