Fun Fact: Marie Lu got the idea to have Day have blonde hair and blue eyes from a photo she saw of a Mongolian girl with natural blonde hair and blue eyes.
I found Champion wasn't as fast paced as Legend or Prodigy as the issue they were fighting was much more complicated and political and couldn't just be fixed quickly. This however did not affect the quality of the book which in turn was tremendously interesting especially with all the secrets finally being revealed. I do think that the solution to the problem seemed very fast and rushed. However the parts leading up to the ending were very unexpected and unusual. Though they kept the concept of a happy ending, there is much trouble that goes along with it which made the ending to this series just that much better.
I personally am not that into all the romance stuff and their internal struggles with deciding on whether they should say something or not to protect the other I find kind of ridiculous. Occasionally later on it can make an interesting topic, but for the most part the lies seem stupid and don’t really do anything for the story.
Overall though this book was quite amazing and I loved how it took real issues and made a creative story out of it. I think the idea was very creative and I would recommend that other teens that enjoy books such as the hunger games or divergent which have similar concepts read this series as well. I would give this book four and a half out of five stars. I hope you enjoyed reading this review.
