Legend

Legend - Marie Lu Compelling world, interesting characters (featuring a strong and reasonably complex young woman character), boring romance. I wish YA science fiction publishers didn't feel the need to force writers to include "romance" at the expense of actual relationships between characters (which I suspect is what happened here). Still, I'll read the inevitable sequel and watch for anything else by this author.
