"What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic's wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic's highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country's most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem. From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths--until the day June's brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family's survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias's death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths their country will go to keep its secrets" -- from publisher's web site.

I really enjoyed this initial book in this dystopian series.
I was able to guess some of the storyline twists (i.e. romance), while others surprised me, but the author did well to not create obvious paradoxes at the same time.

I recommend this book for teens and older. While there is violence and romance, there isn't issues with language or sex that I would be concerned with kids reading.

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!
