Waiting On Wednesday

3 Aug 2011

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine , that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: Legend 
Author: Marie Lu
Publisher: Penguin
Expected Release Date: 28th November 201 (Aus.) & 29th Nov. (US)

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.

Doesn't the UK/AUS cover look absolutely amazing?!?! The girl (who I assume is June) looks like a kick-ass heroine, I think I'm definitely going to like her! I started reading dystopian fiction this year, and this certainly looks interesting enough to rival The Hunger Games & Inside Out! I'm looking forward to this!
* Oh, and it's being released in the US on my birthday! I think this is going to be an awesome birthday present for me :)
