Rebel by Marie Lu

Rebel - Marie Lu

 

If you asked me to tell you about myself, I’d say first that I like to understand things.

– first sentence

 

Audience: Middle Grade

Format:  Kindle/Owned

 

I loved the Legend trilogy and couldn’t wait to read this one. This book mostly focuses on Eden Wing (Day’s little brother). It delves into his relationship with his brother and how they try to get on with their lives after the events of the Legend trilogy. They are living in Antarctica, a nation with a points system that determines your success and standard of living. The inequities of the system are gradually leading to a rebellion. Day is now known as Daniel and works with the government law enforcement agency. Eden is a star at his university and has a bright future in the Republic. But Eden is drawn to the darker side of Antarctica and finds himself crossing paths with the biggest mob boss in the city.

 

I loved seeing how Eden grew up and tried to distance himself from Daniel while at the same time maintaining the values they shared. The best part of this story was getting a chance for closure between June and Day (it was left unresolved at the end of the trilogy).

 

I highly recommend this to fans of the Legend trilogy.
