Legend series #3

Science Fiction
* * * Stars (Pretty good)

June and Day have been apart for a year when Day gets a message that June wants to see him.  The Republic is in trouble.  If it can’t produce a cure for the plague that is sweeping through the Colonies, they will attack.  The Republic has no such cure, but its leader believes they can develop one if they can run more tests on Day’s brother, Eden.  Day is torn by his desire to keep Eden safe and the threat to his country.  It turns out that the plague is just a convenient excuse for the Colonies to attack anyway, but the Republic is without allies and running out of time.  Will Day’s and June’s efforts to save the Republic be successful?  And can their relationship survive a war and Day’s progressively debilitating illness?

An exciting ending to this trilogy with an unexpected and hopeful twist for our two protagonists.
