Book 3 in the Legend Series

June and Day have sacrificed so much for the people of the Republic—and each other—and now their country is on the brink of a new existence. June is back in the good graces of the Republic, working within the government’s elite circles as Princeps Elect while Day has been assigned a high level military position. But neither could have predicted the circumstances that will reunite them once again. Just when a peace treaty is imminent, a plague outbreak causes panic in the Colonies, and war threatens the Republic’s border cities. This new strain of plague is deadlier than ever, and June is the only one who knows the key to her country’s defense. But saving the lives of thousands will mean asking the one she loves to give up everything he has. With heart–pounding action and suspense. Marie Lu’s bestselling trilogy draws to a stunning conclusion.

Praise for Champion

"…readers will come away grateful that she has given this beautifully crafted series the ending it deserved."


"Ever respectful of the capacity of its readers, this series offers a satisfying conclusion of potential rather than a neatly wrapped denouement."


"This story…remains masterfully true to its themes of loyalty, necessity, and dreams, eschewing any easy outs that the plot could offer. A happy–ever–after glow was never in the cards for these two, but Lu displays a hint of Charlotte Brontë in the resolution her characters find."
