Injured and on the run, it has been seven days since June and Day barely escaped Los Angeles and the Republic with their lives. Day is believed dead having lost his own brother to an execution squad who thought they were assassinating him. June is now the Republic's most wanted traitor. Desperate for help, they turn to the Patriots - a vigilante rebel group sworn to bring down the Republic. But can they trust them or have they unwittingly become pawns in the most terrifying of political games?

Day and June are even more conflicted as they are torn between old loyalties and new, their very foundations of belief are tested when truths long hidden are revealed to them and the choices they both face together are ones that may end up ripping them apart.
The ending was sad as well as triumphant in many respects, not knowing exactly what the future now holds makes wanting to read the third book [b:Champion|14290364|Champion (Legend, #3)|Marie Lu|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1382652310s/14290364.jpg|19931517] even more urgent .
Once again we have been given a story that has sublime beauty mixed with supreme ugliness in a way that reinforces just how extreme life can be at any given moment in time.
