Champion by Marie Lu was released early November 5, 2013 and the author ended her book tour at the Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore in Redondo Beach. The back of the bookstore was crowded with fans by the time I arrived, many of them were young girls with their moms (well, there were boys too!). The event started with Marie talking about her writing methods and afterwards, she took (non-spoiler-y) questions from her readers. As usual, her fans were very curious and enthusiastic with lots of interesting questions for the author!
We’d like to say congratulations to Marie for completing her first published trilogy!
Champion exceeded my expectations and it might even be my favorite book from the LEGEND trilogy. It is definitely worth checking out. I am pretty confident that readers will feel pretty happy with how the story ended — or be like me and weep like a tween the entire last half of the book. I may be completely bias because Marie is my ‘sistah from another mutha’, but I loved Champion and it’s easily one of the best books I read in 2013.
June and Day’s tale are over for now but we are excited to see Marie’s next series. More on that later but for now, enjoy some photos from the event and book signing.
Champion is available on Amazon.com.
