This is the second book in the Legend series by Marie Lu.
So I started reading this book and there came a time somewhere in the middle of the book where I could only take one chapter at a time. The dual perspectives and different fonts continue in this book as well.
June has left behind everything she knew, everything she was comfortable in, for Day. Both of them are on the run from the Republic.
In this book, we notice a lot of inner turmoil in both the characters about the choices they need to make to stay alive and safe.
The Elector, head of the Republic, has died and his young son, Anden, takes over. Day and June stumble upon an organisation which is determined to kill the Elector so that the nation can be free. A plan is formulated and June is sent to the Elector, pretending to be on his side and for his safety. But, she is actually leading the Elector right to his assassination.
While on this mission, June finds out some very crucial facts, one of which is that the Elector is different from his father and actually wants to do good towards the country.
She is successful in thwarting the assassination, making Day and herself fugitives and on the run, once again.
They somehow reach the Colonies across the borders but they manage to return to the Republic with the help of a friend, Kaede. Day agrees to help the new Elector to regain control over the country and give his support. The book ends with us finding out that Day is dying.
In the end, this book left me breathless and craving the third book with a desperate of a dying man.
