LEGEND--Realistic Day and June by mree LEGEND--Realistic Day and June by mree
Or, well, at least semi-realistic. :) Yet another drawing in my never-ending quest to find the exact right look for Day and June. Still not quite how I'm picturing them in my head, though. I always keep trying to find the right mix of Asian and Cauasian features for Day.

-------

Legend (book 1 of my trilogy being published by Penguin) takes place in a dark future, when the United States has split into two warring countries: the western Republic, and the eastern Colonies. It tells the story of a famous 15-yr old boy criminal named Day vs. a 15-yr old girl detective prodigy named June, and is coming out on Nov. 29 of this year. You'll be able to find it in all bookstores as well as on Amazon, etc. Legend has also been optioned for film by CBS Films and Twilight's production company, Temple Hill!

Oh my, you made the book? Let me just say it was a great idea and great trilogy! Do you plan on making maybe a short book explaining what happened after the third book? Almost like the short book you made to explain some things before June and Day met and so on. That would be just wonderful! Personally I don't like cliff hangers I usually like storied being explained to the fullest but you did do a good job leaving the reader thinking of what would happen next. (I almost cried before the epilogue) This is my personal opinion and I hope you would! I also can't wait for your new book series to come out! I'm on the edge of my seat waiting!

I adore these books so much! They are more than just briliant, and I find the story between June and Day more realitic then most dystopian relationships, also Day is amusing, I almost dare say I started falling for him x3 he is witty, smart and cunning, also those looks!

Sadly book 3 having come out in Norway yet and I have re-read Legend and Prodigy five times already....

You are one insanely talented woman!!! Your writing is brilliant and your art is so damned awesome too. Counting down the days 'till Champion comes out (i hope nothing tragic happens-though you never fail to surprise me).

Oh my god.
I wasn't expecting to find the actual author when I was looking for fanart and such.
I loved the book, read it like three times in a row.
I'm just going to add you to my watch list now....

June looks like I imagined her... Day does not. Lol I imagined Day kinda Light Yagami-ish with longer hair and the right hair/eye color. xD

This is such an amazing book. We're reading it for school. The class is just done chapter 3, I don't know what chapter I'm on... Just somewhere in about the middle of the book. It's so good! And they both look so great here!

I'm absolutely in love with your book! I love how Day and June are both perfect prodigies, and good looking, but they're not annoyingly perfect. That's one of the biggest problems I have with writing. I'm super psyched for the sequel!

I've always pictured Ross Lynch as Day. Sort of inaccurate, but he has the look. I love LEGEND, by the way-I finished it today in school! I had to hold in major fangirling. When does the next book come out? :)
