Legend by Marie Lu

Happily this book brings us back onto familiar (and much-loved) territory!

A brand new dystopian trilogy to rival The Hunger Games.
I devoured it in 2 days - the last half was truly un-put-downable!

Marie Lu has created something special with this one.

At the start I wasn't sure about the dual narration. Switching back and forth from Day to June and back to Day again with different fonts and different colours usually puts me off (think 'One Day' by David Nicholls). But Lu pulls it off.

She has two characters that you become involved with very quickly, two characters that you care about, two stories that merge and contrast seamlessly.
I don't want to give too much of this story away as half the pleasure is allowing it to unfold as you read. But if you want to know more click here to see Marie Lu's webpage and you can follow her blog, or on facebook and twitter.

Published by Penguin and due in stores 1st December - put this on your 'to read list' now!
