In the final book of the Legend Trilogy, the war gets out of hand. After a plague outbreak in the Colonies, the Colonies break the cease-fire, and with the help of Africa, plans to attack the Republic. To stop them, the Elector needs a cure. The only way to get that cure is through Eden, Day’s younger brother. But Day won’t let them tamper with his brother again. Will Day ever change his mind? How will the Republic ever find a cure?
I enjoyed this book for many reasons. The first reason is because it was smooth and complete, with great details. It also had great twists that didn’t seem too extreme. The second reason is the characters seem real, with real weaknesses and emotions that don’t seem made up. Day’s love of his little brother doesn’t seem fictional, and it makes me like his character even more.
The most memorable thing about this book is when June and Anden go to Antarctica. I really enjoyed the advanced glasses technology that made it seem like a game.

Hi! I’m Amanda, the Teen Librarian at Fairfield Area Library. I have a four-legged child named Bailey, a cat who acts like a dog. He plays fetch, chases his tail and comes when he is called.
Favorite Books: I love reading mystery novels and young adult fiction. Team Peeta! My favorite books are always changing, but my favorite series at the moment are the Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken and the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. Anything by Jasper Fforde, Rick Riordan, Steve Berry or Steve Sheinkin.
Favorite Food: I love food, but nothing tops homemade macaroni and cheese.
Favorite Music: I will listen to almost anything; but I tend to lean more towards pop, rock, show tunes and country. I am also a huge fan of a-capella music (which includes all genres). Queen is still my favorite band of all time.
Favorite Reference Question: “Where is your Teen Section?”
