Review: Champion by Marie Lu

Review: Champion by Marie Lu

I have to start this review by discussing the last few pages of this incredible trilogy.  Champion has such a beautiful, perfect ending, and it felt like Marie Lu wrote it as a love letter to her fans.  No doubt she loves June and Day even more than we do, but when she signed off on this series with such compassion and respect, I couldn’t help but feel appreciated as a reader and a fan.  I read Champion right after… Read more »

Review: Prodigy by Marie Lu

Review: Prodigy by Marie Lu

  I loved Legend, and I desperately wanted Prodigy to live up to the standard set by its predecessor.  I’m happy to say that Marie Lu succeeded wonderfully.  When Prodigy opens, June and Day have fled the Republic, and they head to Las Vegas to join the Patriot rebellion.  Sibling love continues to play a big role as June continues to mourn her brother’s death, and Day is desperate to find his brother, Eden. I’m a huge fan of post-apocalyptic… Read more »
