Is it possible to love this book anymore than I did? I definitely loved it. We start in future North America with Day, the most wanted criminal in the country. Suddenly, June’s brother is killed and Day is the prime suspect. June has to find Day to make things right, but when they do meet secrets start to become uncovered.

My most favorite part of this book were the unique characters. When I read books most of the characters are average, which isn’t bad, but it gets so mundane that when you find smart (or the occasional stupid) characters it’s so much more interesting thing to read.

I also really enjoyed the world. A big thing in fictional books are the worlds. For me to enjoy the books the world has to be beautiful, or at least interesting. In Legend the whole world it is set in is beautiful and interesting. This really made me enjoy the book.

So I’d say 5 stars, 100%, and a beautiful contribution to the world of books.

First of all, I definitely didn’t like this as much as the first, but I still really enjoyed it. I think my problem with the book was that it was so different from the first. I get that it had to be different if it was a second book, but I would like feel some familiarity from the first book. I felt so confined and squished in one place. It was a little overwhelming.

But of course, there is always something good about the book. In this case it’s the way the characters change. When I read about Karou it was much fun to watch her learn what was going on.

3 stars, 80%, and okay
