Thirty-Five Days After Metias’s Death.
June and Day arrive in Vegas just as the unthinkable happens: the Elector Primo dies, and his son Anden takes his place. With the Republic edging closer to chaos, the two join a group of Patriot rebels eager to help Day rescue his brother and offer passage to the Colonies. They have only one request—June and Day must assassinate the new Elector.
It’s their chance to change the nation, to give voice to a people silenced for too long.
But as June realizes this Elector is nothing like his father, she’s haunted by the choice ahead. What if Anden is a new beginning? What if revolution must be more than loss and vengence, anger and blood—what if the Patriots are wrong?
Legend was one of my favorite books of 2011! I can't wait to read more about Day and June's story. The ending of Legend, though not a cliffhanger, was as hair-pulling-inducing! It just sucks that the release date was pushed to January 2013 instead of November 2012. :(
