Waiting on Wednesday: Champion by Marie Lu

****"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.****

My pick this week is:

Champion (Legend, #3)
Champion by Marie Lu
Expected release date: November 5th, 2013
from  Putnam Juvenile
*Spoilers for Prodigy below*
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.
Do I really need to explain my need for this??? The ending of Prodigy was like the worst two ways a author could end a book put together. As soon as I finished it I wanted there to be another page making it a happy ending. From the synopsis that obviously didn't happen, but I still have faith that the author can at least give the series a happy ending. November come faster!
