Summary (from Goodreads):
The explosive finale to Marie Lu’s New York Times bestselling LEGEND trilogy—perfect for fans of THE HUNGER GAMES and DIVERGENT!
He is a Legend.
She is a Prodigy.
Who will be Champion?
June and Day have sacrificed so much for the people of the Republic—and each other—and now their country is on the brink of a new existence. June is back in the good graces of the Republic, working within the government’s elite circles as Princeps Elect while Day has been assigned a high level military position. But neither could have predicted the circumstances that will reunite them once again. Just when a peace treaty is imminent, a plague outbreak causes panic in the Colonies, and war threatens the Republic’s border cities. This new strain of plague is deadlier than ever, and June is the only one who knows the key to her country’s defense. But saving the lives of thousands will mean asking the one she loves to give up everything he has. With heart-pounding action and suspense, Marie Lu’s bestselling trilogy draws to a stunning conclusion.
I love the book covers for Legend and Prodigy, so I wasn't really sure how Penguin Teen could pull off an even better design, but they've really outdone themselves this time! I think we can all agree that the cover for Champion is perfect, memorable, and really stands out!
Marie Lu's Champion is definitely among my most anticipated reads of the year and I can't wait to see how the trilogy will end. After the stunning revelation at the end of Prodigy, I'm scared for June and Day's future together. There is so much that can still happen, and peace and stability in the Republic is undoubtedly delicate...
