5.0 out of 5 stars A nice trilogy! June 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I recently got hooked on teen dystopian trilogies. Legend is a good one. I liked the characters and the action. The end left me kind of sad, but hopeful.

One of the best series I've ever read!

I had to buy the sampler just to get a sneak peek at "Prodigy" before it came out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait to read the rest! January 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to say, just the short little bit from "Prodigy" is making me really wish it was the end of January already! I'm a little relieved I only got hooked into the Legend story just 2 days ago. I suppose I can handle a couple more weeks to finish out the next portion of the series. Seriously a teaser! "Prodigy" is going to have readers hooked from the very beginning.

Now the hard part will be waiting until this fall for "Champion"...

Side note: I read this only for the peak at "Prodigy". I picked up "Legend" yesterday and when I finished it this afternoon I was looking up info for the next book and stumbled upon this Series Sampler. Just don't read past Marie Lu's little part if you haven't finished "Legend" yet, it has lots of spoilers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice teaser December 20, 2012

I loved LEGEND and I can't wait to get my hands on PRODIGY (my excitement is double since I am the person who has translated the book into Romanian). I kind of hate teaser chapters, but PRODIGY is out next month, so it's okay for you to read it. This trilogy is indeed going to be one of the best dystopian series ever written. Congratulations Marie Lu for creating such an interesting world and such wonderful characters!

I know this was a good read because i bought and read all 3 in the trilogy. liked the characters and their development the story line was good also. I keep getting this mixed up with the Catching Fire trilogy but not really the same at all. worth the read.
