November 2012 Indie Next List
“Its hard to believe that there could be a more thrilling, heart-stopping tale than Lu-s fantastic debut, Legend, but she has done it with this sequel. Moving the action out of Los Angeles and around the battle zone Republic, Day and June fight together and apart through numerous situations and deceptions and their relationship deepens. These well-drawn characters, as well as the young, new Elector, point to the final book that will conclude this terrific imaginative dystopian tale. Be ready to stay up all night to finish this!”
— Maureen Palacios, Once Upon a Time, Montrose, CA
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 vengeance, anger and blood--what if the Patriots are wrong?
In this highly-anticipated sequel to the "New York Times" bestseller "Legend," Lu delivers a breathtaking thriller with high stakes and cinematic action.
