Rebel is the fourth science fiction novel in Marie Lu's Legend series. It takes place a decade after Champion and illustrates Daniel and Eden Wings’ new lives in the supposed-utopia of Antarctica. Daniel learns to navigate his relationship with his now-grown brother as Eden tries to escape from his older brother's shadow. The two brothers must take on the notorious criminal Dominic Hann while challenging their government's beliefs and facing their pasts. In my opinion, this book was okay, but it wasn't up to my expectations. I liked Eden's prominence and his newly-found character depth, but I found most of Daniel's parts in the book to be redundant and repetitive. I think Rebel is worth the read if you're really missing Lu's characters, but otherwise, it brings a weaker ending to the Legend books than Champion would have.
