I love this book (and this series) so much. It's one of my absolute favorites, and I love the way the author just weaves everything together. I also am amazed at the way the story tugged at my heartstrings the whole way through the trilogy, right up to the very last word (I don't know how many times I cried reading this). I especially loved the bittersweet ending. It's seamless, the way the plot goes, and I was very interested to see what the outcome of the love triangle would be. So satisfying!

This book is indeed, a Champion in its own right. It was by far the most intense of all three, with the relationships slowly drawing to a point of high altitude. I absolutely loved every page of it, even though I did fly through it in less than 24 hours. I had to show my friend the ending, thereby accidently spoiling a part, but it was worth it for her ability to relate to my pain. Yes, there are lots of books on revolution, change and society, but this series made it interesting. I still love it, although I really wish the whole story was concluded "5 years later rather than 10." It would seem slightly more understandable from my perspective as a teenager. 5/5 stars

LOVED the book. It had a really bittersweet ending to it, but it had action and adventure as well. It had a powerful message and it really made me think. It really made me feel like I was in the book with June and Day. It was a great conclusion to the series, but after I finished the book, I really wanted another one. If you liked the ending of the book, I would recommend Prison Boy by Sharon E. McKay. :D Rating: 5/5

I thought this was a really solid conclusion to this series, with an ending that felt appropriately bittersweet, and which was ambiguous enough that I felt like that it really matched the events of the book. I know there are about five thousand teen dystopia novels out there to choose from (which is one of the reasons I dragged my feet for so long about reading this series), but, truly, for teens who loved The Hunger Games and are looking for a great readalike, this trilogy is, I think, the best one I’ve read.

Loved the book, but the ending was too bittersweet for me. Sad how Day can't even remember June's name. Wish there was another book from Eden's POV though.

I am very well satisfied with the ending of this series, and although I still have lots of questions for what will happen in June's future I can fill those gaps with my own imagination. Marie Lu did a wonderful job with this entire series, and ended it in a bittersweet note.

This book was a total read-until-finish-it book meaning you read until 2 am wake up the next morning crying and be like yeah I stayed up till 2 to finish champion while your family members stare at you like you coughed up a hair ball as you cry to them that the series ended. Welcome to my life. Champion was so good!!!!! Anden I have to admit was awesome plus I felt bad for the poor guy.....can't give any spoilers but poor Anden. Champion's ending was like ahhhhhh!!!!!!! Marie Lu really can ruin your month with her endings. Trust me. Read The Young Elites ending. I almost broke something.
