Book Review: Champion by Marie Lu

Book: Champion by Marie Lu
Genre: YA Dystopian
Rating: ★★★★★
For: Fun
From: Borrowed

Well, I ripped through that series I'd say. What a fun, awesome dystopian tale. In this, the third and final book of the trilogy, Day and June have become revered leaders and celebrities for their country. There's a full on war with the Colonies and they need help from the powerhouses around the world like Africa and especially Antarctica.

The trip we take in this book to Antarctica was fascinating! I'm wondering if Marie Lu has another book planned that will be set there. That would really be awesome.

Anyway, Day is fighting his own battle with failing health, which was painful to endure as readers. But that does not stop him from helping out where needed and get back to his old tricks. His brother Eden also figures prominently in the book as his blood is needed to stop the ever present virus.

The ending is crazy and twisty and makes readers have patience! And that's all I'm going to say about that.

Bottom line: An awesome and exciting story with some characters who have been added to my list of all time favorites.

And, if you haven't begun the Legend series, and you are at all interested in dystopians, this is one of the BEST series out there. From Annette's Book Spot
