Waiting on Wednesday (22): Champion

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine! This week I'm waiting on...

Champion (Legend, #3) - Marie Lu
Expected Publication Date: November 5, 2013 (My birthday!)
Page Count: 384 pages
Publisher: Putnam (Penguin)

To avoid spoilers (as this is the third book), I'll be posting the synopsis to book one, Legend

 What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic’s wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic’s highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country’s most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.

From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths—until the day June’s brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family’s survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias’s death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths their country will go to keep its secrets.

Full of nonstop action, suspense, and romance, this novel is sure to move readers as much as it thrills.

This series is SO GOOD! It's one of the best dystopian series I've ever read, and after the insane ending of Prodigy, I need Champion, like, yesterday. If you haven't checked out this series, I highly recommend it!
