AAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!! SOOOO MUUUCHCCCHCH FRUSSSSTTTRRRRAAAAATTTTIIIOOONNN!!!!! If you have not read Legend and Prodigy, the first two books of this series, i highly suggest that you do, so that we can discuss it now. It got 4.45 on goodreads however I would give it a 4 stars because it was just soo frustrating. And the summary is as follows:

He is a Legend.

She is a Prodigy.

Who will be Champion? 

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: 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. 

With heart-pounding action and suspense, Marie Lu’s bestselling trilogy draws to a stunning conclusion

SPOILERS AHEAD!!

SOOOOO!!! I’ve gotta admit, I was hoping that we were gonna see some of Day and June together at the beginning, since at the end of Prodigy, they were so madly in love that they were all over each other, and then in the beginning with Champion… ITS BEEN EIGHT MONTHS!!!!! or however many months… but no they aren’t, they aren’t in love anymore!!!! NO! Well, they are, but they aren’t because they dont make any attempts at communicating. URGGGGGHHH!!!! And the tone of the book was really depressing… i mean, Day was dying, June was depressed. I was really sad and especially at the end of the book, which frustrated me soooo much! WHY??!?!?! WHY?!?!?! WHY!?!?!?! I just wanted a happy ending, just ONE happy ending! But i couldnt even get that. I mean, really Marie Lu, why you gotta do this to me, you had to end it when they meet again, and why couldnt June say that, yes, they had met before and that they were actually together, because if he was still day, he would still love her, he was not someone else. And I thought that the doctor said that his memory could be fixed with therapy? WELL ITS TEN YEARS LATER!!! Im only assuming that because he was in New Antarctica, where they have the best hospitals, that he had that therapy! THE DOCTOR SAID THAT HE WOULD HAVE HIS MEMORY BACK!!!! DAMN YOU DOCTOR!!! YOU LIED TO US!!!! WHY CANT DAY REMEMBER JUNE!!! And why does the book have to end there, i mean, why cant there be another epilogue where they tell us that they actually did get back together and had amazing smart, good looking, athletic babies together!!!!! UGH!!!!! You asked for this Marie Lu, when you decided to write the ending that way, you asked for lots of angry reviews and opinions. You wouldnt have this problem if you just gave us a happy ending!!! BUT NO!!!! And can we just talk about how amazing New Antarctica is!!! I would totally live there! The game thing sounds so awesome, since I love playing games and I am a competitive person, i would need to live there! OMIGOD!!! I cant breath! Im typing so fast i think my fingers will fall off, but once i get on a role i just cant stop writing. I need to get my feelings out. So dont mind me if i start ranting. OKAY! Lets talk about June, why  oh why oh why did she go after Anden! WHO IS NOTHING COMPARED TO DAY!!!! Anden is so boring and not fun and.. NO JUNE NO!!!! Did you have a sudden lapse of judgement because thats the ONLY reasonal explanation!!!! I WAITED MORE THAN HALF THE BOOK FOR JUNE AND DAY TO GET TOGETHER!!! HALF OF THE LAST BOOK AND IN THE END THEY DONT EVEN GET TOGETHER!!!! Or maybe they do but we just dont know because SOMEONE decided that it would be best to just END the book when they MEET AGAIN because SOMEBODY decided that Day had to LOSE  HIS MEMORY!!! SO MUCH FRUSTRATION!!!!! I better stop before i give myself a heart attack. I think i may be over reacting… but… noo. noooo. nooooo. JUNE AND DAY MUST BE TOGETHER!!!!!

I cant even….

no….

bye….
