Book Review: Champion

Champion is the last of a great trilogy. Day and June are separate, but not for long, as a new threat has June asking Day once again for his help. If he doesn’t it could mean war between the Colonies and the Republic, something that is best avoided. A new plague has cropped up and once it affects Day’s close friend, he can no longer resist helping. Day and June are probably one of the best literary couples I’ve seen in a while. They both have their own goals that keep pulling them apart, but they cannot deny their feelings […]

Book Review: Prodigy

Review: Legend   **If you have not read Legend, there will be obvious spoilers in this review for the first book.   I enjoyed Legend immensely when I listened to it on audio, so I was hoping I would still enjoy the sequel even though I was reading a physical copy this time.   Prodigy takes place just about where Legend ended.

Book View: Legend

Short and Sweet: Like most, I had a bunch of expectations for Legend. Dystopian. Love interests on opposing sides, a real Romeo and Juliet feel. Plus a few other elements that had me intrigued. From the beginning, I was not exactly sure what I was getting from Legend. The beginning was a bit slow. The plot seemed, at times, to take forever to just get the main story going. But once the action really started, I was sold! June and Day, our main characters, are a great foil to each other. The strict, by-the-book June definitely found her match in go-with-the-flow Day. […]
