Waiting on Wednesday #34: Champion

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

My pick for this week's WoW is...


Champion by Marie Lu


Title: Champion (Legend #3)
Author: Marie Lu
Release date: November 5th 2013
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile
Genre: Young Adult Dystopian

He is a Legend.
She is a Prodigy.
Who will be Champion?

June and Day have sacrificed so much for the people of the Republic—and each other—and now their country is on the brink of a new existence. June is back in the good graces of the Republic, working within the government’s elite circles as Princeps Elect while Day has been assigned a high level military position. But neither could have predicted the circumstances that will reunite them once again. Just when a peace treaty is imminent, a plague outbreak causes panic in the Colonies, and war threatens the Republic’s border cities. This new strain of plague is deadlier than ever, and June is the only one who knows the key to her country’s defense. But saving the lives of thousands will mean asking the one she loves to give up everything he has. With heart-pounding action and suspense, Marie Lu’s bestselling trilogy draws to a stunning conclusion.

I've read the first couple chapters of Champion, since it was a promo thing at ALA, and my friend brought one back for me. And it made me so impatient for this book! I still am, of course. I mean the conclusion of the trilogy! I don't think I'm ready for it yet. But I know it's going to be mind-blowing.

  1. UGHHHHHHHHH THE COVER

    and yes after that ending in Legend, I'm so glad Champion's coming out this year too. I don't think I can wait a whole year for the sequel.

  9. Dying for this one as you probably read in my own WoW :) I don't know if I'm ready to let go of this series. Maybe I'll make a celebration out of it and re-read the first 2 books.

    Thanks for dropping by!
