The 4th book in Marie Lu’s Legend series is the much awaited conclusion of Day and June’s story, along with a glimpse at the life of Day’s younger brother Eden Wing. Wanting to keep some semblance of the action of his early days, Day picks up a job with the government of Ross City. But Eden is sick of being recognized as Day’s younger brother, and gets sucked into the dark happenings of Ross City. This book provides solace to the many fans of the Legend series, who desperately wanted to know how Day and June’s story would play out, but it is not as exciting as the original 3 books, as Eden’s story is not as intriguing as his brother’s. I would recommend reading this book to those who want to know whether Day and June found peace, but don’t expect it to be an amazing continuation of their story.

Eden Wing is tired of being only recognized as Day’s younger brother. However, Day is not the same person who was once a national hero. A new threat emerges from the gap that has formed between the brothers, and Eden is soon drawn so deeply into Ross City's dark side that even his legendary brother can’t save him alone. Based on the summary, I could tell that Rebel was going to focus a lot on brotherhood. I still had hopes of June being the main character in this book however, it was understandable that she wasn’t since her story was wrapped up in Champion. I loved getting to read more from Day’s point of view again as well as Eden’s point of view. Reading Eden’s chapters was refreshing since his character dynamic is so different from Day and June. Alongside this, it was interesting to read about his perspective on the events of the first three books. Despite how Rebel was published six years later from the Legend trilogy, I would recommend Legend readers to pick this up since it is a must-read and will make you more satisfied with the ending compared to Champion.

I don't know, everybody else seems to like this book, and while I really liked Day and June, Eden frustrated me. I know he wanted to make a change and stuff, but to me he came off as spoiled. He never felt like the consequences might not have been worth doing what he did vs if he'd communicated with Day and done it in the proper channels bc I know Day would have listened. Overall, I didn't like it that much solely because of Eden.

After the events of Legend, Prodigy, and Champion, Day and his younger brother Eden have moved to Ross City, Antarctica, which is said to be the most peaceful city in the world. In this city, doing good things increases your “level”, while doing bad things decreases it. The higher a citizen’s level, the more privileges are available for that citizen. After going to university one day, Eden enters the Undercity, where the criminals and people with low levels live. After this, Eden sees the dark side of Ross City’s social structure, and the brothers must find a way to fix it.

This book is a fine conclusion to the points that its predecessors brought up and continues the themes of the series itself; that of the underdog able to rise in society. However, this book may fall short to certain fans of the previous book, as it does not involve new, more complex characters, rather using older characters, but a more complex setting.

Rebel, by Marie Lu was very well written. It was perfectly connected to the Legend Trilogy all while giving the reader a deeper look into Day and Eden's new lives in Antarctica. The story was very easy to follow and was full of many exciting events that made me want to continue reading and cased you to get connected to all the characters and what they are going through. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who has read and enjoyed the Legend series as this book wrapped the whole story up perfectly.

As an avid fan of Marie Lu, I was absolutely ecstatic when she announced that this book was going to be released. June and Day made my heart melt at the end of Champion, and this book gives the closure that I'm sure everyone needed.

At first, I was a little skeptical because the book was centered a little more around Eden. Although I do love Eden, I was on board because of June and Day. After reading it, I can say that Marie Lu did an incredible job of balancing out the book between Eden and Day. It surely does justice to Eden, but it also has my favorite June and Day moments.

June and Day. With this book, I am literally at a loss for words. Marie Lu delivered so well, and I can't help but completely fangirl and scream over every single moment between them.

We are also introduced to Eden's new life (and friend, Pressa!) in Antarctica, and the struggles he is facing for being the brother of Day. We are given a glimpse of his interests, and how he wants to bring change with his ideas.

The brotherly love between Day and Eden shows a deep struggle, and Marie Lu incorporated the progression of their friendship fantastically. The antagonist in the book certainly plays a role in helping them realize how much they love each other.

Overall, 10/10 book, and would absolutely recommend it to every single person that has read this series. The moments between June and Day are absolutely swoon-worthy, and will for sure leave you screaming, then crying, and then filled with so much joy. This book is an amazing example of good closure, and takes all of our lost threads, and ties them back together. A must read!!!

Another action-packed dystopian thriller from Marie Lu that is an epic conclusion to her Legend series. This book has multiple POVs like previous books although this time it's Day and his younger brother, Eden.
