Today Penguin Australia revealed the cover for one of my most anticipated reads this year: Legend by Marie Lu.
The cover above is the Aussie/UK edition.
I LOVE IT
I love the colour scheme ~ light and dark and shadowy and luminous all at once. I love the symbol imprinted in the top left corner. I like the glimpse of the dystopian world ~ and the girl in the combat boots on the cover <3
I do like the US cover too ~ it's striking in it's simplicity ~ but I think my fave this time is the Aussie cover :)
Which cover do you like best?
Have you read Legend yet? (there are ARCs out there)
Are you planning on reading it?
The blurb of Legend: The United States is gone, along with its flooded coasts. North America's two warring nations, the western Republic and the eastern Colonies, have reached a breaking point. In the midst of this broken continent and dark new world are two teenagers who will go down in history . . .
Born into the slums of the Republic's Lake sector, fifteen-year old Day is the country's most wanted criminal. A mysterious boy with no recorded image or fingerprints. A boy who should no longer exist. A boy who watches over his family until one evening, when the plague patrols mark his family's door with an X - the sign of infection. A death sentence for any family too poor to afford the antidote. Day has no choice; he must steal it.
Born to an elite family in the wealthy Ruby sector, fifteen-year old June is the Republic's most promising prodigy. Obedient, passionate, and committed to her country - until the day her brother Metias is murdered during a break-in at the plague hospital.
Only one person could be responsible.
And now it's June's mission to hunt him down.
The truth they'll uncover will become legend.
