  • Octillion rated this: 4 stars out of 5.

This book was like a mix of Hunger Games and Romeo & Juliet. It was really enjoyable. A little slow in the beginning, but it's all set-up that comes into play later in the book (and probably the series as a whole). Worth checking out!

I just finished Legend and loved it as much as the other Distopian series such as Hunnger Games, Tomorrow When the War Began, Life As We Knew it, etc. I see that the next part is called Prodigy and is due out Jan 29, 2013.uch a long time to wait!
