This is the final book in the Legend trilogy, which has quickly become one of my favorite series. In this one, the Colonies have lifted their ceasefire and have began to invade the Republic following the plague spreading to their cities. The only way the Colonies will sign a peace treaty with the Republic is if the Republic finds a cure for the plague. Day must decide if he will sacrifice someone he loves for the good of the people while June attempts to receive aid from Antarctica!
