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
