Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved it! An amazing heart-wrenching ending to a great trilogy! One of the only dystopian trilogies I truly loved!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Read! Amazing Trilogy! This final book is filled with action. The pacing doesn't slow down for a second. I thought the characters were amazing. The world was awesome. This book was very suspenseful and I enjoyed every minute of it. The ending was so amazing, and it gave me a sense of hope for both characters. I hope we get a glimpse into the future and see where June and Day end up and also a prequel to Metias's story, I think that would be interesting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TOO MANY EMOTIONS i read this book in one day and totally should not have done that because by the end of it i was trying to deal with the whole human spectrum of emotions and it was too much for me to handle. i ended up in a reading slump for a month because i couldn't stop thinking about this book. it's SO GOOD. the ending is perfect. it's sad, yes, but also hopeful, and if an ending leaves you wanting to reread the story, then i think it's a great ending.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great conclusion This was a great conclusion to the series. It had a great story line, but I wish some things ended differently. The characters in this series are so great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Conclusion I really like the ending to this series, as I feel like it is not an ending that I have seen before in the other trilogies with similar plots. It's pretty good with its own twists and turns. I love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Actually a 4.5 star I really enjoyed this book, I feel like this whole series is such a well rounded and thought out series. Like the other two books in this series, I loved the characters, action and plot in this one. Those last 70 pages actually killed me. Such a strong trilogy, would highly recommend it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Third Book. The Best. I wasn't thrilled when I started this series, but when I start one, I need to finish it! The first novel is pretty good, the second is 'meh', and the third one (this one) is by far the best of all! The ending is a very original ending. Deciding to finish the series was my best decision, because of this book !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finaly Good So this was great. I kind of knew as soon as I read the summary that this one would be my favourite in the series and I wasn't wrong. It had all the right amounts of action, angst and romance; along with a decent plot and a good amount of world building. They also had a significant time skip between books that made this book seem so much more real than the others. And that allowed The characters to really deal with the consequence of their actions and their emotions, and figure out if everything that they felt in the first two books was real, which is not something you see often in ya. I still think that this series is only a solid 3.5 across the board, (and I would have liked it Way more if I had read it in 2011 when the series came out) but this book was really well written and I loved the ending. It was moving and realistic and an excellent wrap up to a good series. Overall I thought the world building was really cool, the typography used throughout the book added an interesting element for the reader, and the characters were well written and likable. I am so excited to move on to Marie Lu's next series and continue watching her writing evolve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! The Legend Trilogy is unique in that each book in the series is amazing. I've read so many trilogies where one or two books will be amazing, and one or two will leave you completely underwhelmed, but this series was amazing from start to finish. I couldn't put it down, and ended up marathon reading the whole trilogy within a few days. I highly recommend this one. My hubby's currently reading it right now, and he's just as taken with it as I was.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH boy. This book. This book nearly did me in. I love it so much it's unhealthy. Yesterday I read Wings, and in my review I wrote about how it was good, but somehow it was lacking something. I've realized why it was so unsatisfying - it's because it isn't Champion. They're comparable; the end of the series devoted to bringing down a corrupt regime, the end of a journey for the characters. But where Wings disappointed, this book passed with flying colors. I could go on and on about how much I love this book, but I'm in a bit of a weird place emotionally after reading it, so I think I need to go lie down. Seriously, at one point near the end I was cheering, out loud and then not five minutes later I was ugly-noisy-crying, and then five minutes later I was still ugly-noisy-crying, but grinning like an idiot through my tears. It's a good thing I waited till I got home from my commute to finish it, because this book called upon all my bed's powers of burrowing in the duvet for comfort and sobbing into the pillow. Seriously, it was just so good .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Explosive I totally saw the plot twist coming. Yet when it did come, I was like WHAT NO WHAT?!? Everything flowed really nicely in the final, and I really, really loved the epilogue. Also, the cover art for the hardcover is gorgeous. :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tissues I cried at the end. It was so beautiful and the ending was so realistic - it was entirely believable and bittersweet and I felt like that was a good representation of how life is like. It's not always a happy ending, but we can make one. :')

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Amazing One of the best final books in a series that i have ever read. The entire book brings you on an emotional roller coaster and you never know how its going to end until it does. I won't lie, i did shed a few tears near the end but amazing work by Marie Lu to produce a great farewell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heartbreaking (but amazing) Ending (This review is pretty much a rant of my love for this book). ALL THE STARS. ALL THE STARS TO THIS AMAZING BOOK. Amazing characters. So much action. This book had it all. I cried so much throughout this whole book. When the ending (last 50 pages or so) came around I don't think there was a point where I didn't have tears in my eyes. I NEED A BOOK OR A NOVELLA ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THIS. The ending was just a rollercoaster of emotions for me. I was crying out of sadness and then out of happiness. BUT THE VERY LAST FEW PAGES BROKE MY HEART. So cute. So overwhelmingly adorable. I AM SO HAPPY! My heart is broken and I have a new OTP that has to be my favourite OTP. I have so much love for Day. My love for Anden and so many other characters grew so much during this book. Let's talk about Ollie for a moment. There wasn't much of him in the trilogy, but he's a dog, which means I love him. I LOVE THESE CHARACTERS AND THIS TRILOGY SO MUCH AHH!! Please go read this trilogy because it will break your heart, but in a good way.
