The first in another YA trilogy that fans of divergent, etc... may like. However I didn't think this one was early as deep and tended to be a little predictable. Not sorry I read it because it was a fast read and an interesting plot, but the depth of the story wasn't there and many of the 'twists' were predictable. I may read the next one at some point if the friend who loaned me this one has it to loan as well.

Another entry in the ever-expanding YA dystopic genre, Legend was a decently-written book with an interesting concept but I didn't find anything about this novel to stand out (positively or negatively). It was a quick read and the story moved along apace, but I didn't feel a genuine connection with any of the characters or shocked by any of the plot twists. The story was frequently moved along by coincidences that seemed a bit of a reach. That said, if you're a fan of the genre there's no reason not to read this one. I don't think I liked it enough to read the other two books in the trilogy (Prodigy and Champion) but I wouldn't be opposed to reading something different by the author in the future.
