I feel that this series is not rated highly enough or hyped enough. I adore all three books. I read each in one sitting. And that takes a lot for me, because I’m usually a busy human. 😉
Here is the link to the Goodreads page of the first book in this trilogy, Legend by Marie Lu. Go read about it and then just read it.
