From the New York Times bestselling author of The Young Elites What was once the western.
That's the story.
And it's a very good one. Legend is a great way to start a trilogy. She writes for young adults. The Legend Trilogy is her most popular work and will soon be adapted into a film. Legend is the first of a trilogy. Set in a future where parts of the US have become The Republic, and others 'The Colonies' and they are at war, plus the Republic is also facing a rebellion in its own borders , weather is extreme and society has become more structured, the haves and the have-nots more obvious.
June Iparis is a prodigy - the only individual in the Republic to score perfectly on their trial which is used to determine what level education you receive and what jobs you are suited for.
She is also an orphan. Early-on, she narrates her rebellious streak, her relationship with her beloved brother, and how wonderful and powerful and good the Republic is. Then, there is Day. He narrates his life as one of the society's less fortunate.
He's from a poor slum where life is hard, resources scarce, and plague a constant threat. He's supposed to be dead, failed his trial, and now, he's wanted for criminal activity - he likes to disrupt the Republic by bombing things, steal supplies, etc although he's never killed anyone.
When Day risks everything to save a family member, June hunts him - for personal reasons. As is typical of dystopian novels, she comes to learn that not everything she was taught is the truth. But, her conflict with Day is personal.
Both narrators are well-drawn, voices distinct enough. The action is tight and the novel moves along quickly, without extraneous plots of giant chunks of exposition explaining the history of the world. In fact, few details are known on the how or why, or even a complete picture of the current state of the world of Day and June. The focus is on the characters and the action. The theme and the connection to issues of today are clear, but not overdone - no long speeches or chapters of rumination on the meaning of it all.
No big surprises or twists, but it also didn't feel contrived or unoriginal. And while the changing relationship between the two narratives is expected, it isn't overly angst-filled or focused on more than the plot or theme.
