OH.MY.GOD. I know. Seriously guys, I AM FREAKING OUT! I am a really big fan of Marie Lu. My sister, too. She recently finished Legend and she can't stop gushing about it. When I logged in to my blogger account a while ago, I saw a new comment on my Prodigy review asking when the next book will come out and I remembered how agonized I was when I finished Prodigy and learned that the third book will probably be published next year. But of course, things change. So I decided to check it out again on Goodreads and guess what I saw. IT HAS A FREAKING COVER! And the expected publication date: NOVEMBER 5, 2013. 2013! 2013!!! Uh. Excuse me while I faint. This definitely made my day. It made my DAY. Get it? I'm rambling. So, back to the point. As I was saying, I freaked out when I saw the cover thinking 'When was this revealed?', 'Is this the official cover?'.. and thought about asking the author herself but when I got to her Twitter page, I saw the link to the official reveal at EW and when was this? That's right. MAY 2, 2013 10:01 AM ET. Which means it was just less than a day ago if you base it in my time-zone. Huh. How awesome it that? So I thought I'd share it with you!

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 once again. 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 he has. With heart-pounding action and suspense, Marie Lu’s bestselling trilogy draws to a stunning conclusion.
