In celebration of Comic-con, I have a really exciting announcement for you guys, as well as a chance to get a free copy of Prodigy (Legend #2). This is something that's VERY close to my heart and something I've been working with a team on for months. Drumroll....

The official game trailer for "Cities of Legend"

I've partnered with CBS Films (who also own Legend's movie rights) and social game developer Wicked Sweet Games to make a Facebook game for Legend, with our launch scheduled for early fall of this year! "Cities of Legend" combines Puzzle, Battle, and Strategy in a game where you can fight FOR or AGAINST the Republic of America's dark regime. I can't say much more than that, but you will be able to see--and play--as Legend's characters. Wicked Sweet Games and I designed the gameplay, and as a former game industry employee, I'm having so much fun dipping my toes back into the gaming world.

To whet your appetite, check out some of the sparkling concept art currently up on our app page (including what Day and June look like), courtesy of our developer Wicked Sweet Games: .


That's Day. IT'S GORGEOUS. This will be updated frequently with new concepts and screens. And if you add the app now, you'll get a virtual gift when the game opens:… . Pretty sweet.


To celebrate our announcement, I am giving away two advance copies of Prodigy. Prodigy is the second book in the Legend trilogy, and it doesn't go on sale until Jan. 29, 2013. It looks like this:

(Yup, Day's chapters are printed in dark blue ink. This is due to the awesomeness of my publisher, Penguin--thank you, Penguin! :heart:)

How do you enter this Prodigy giveaway? See below:

What: Giving away two signed Prodigy (Legend #2) advance copies

When: The contest starts right now (Wednesday, July 12) and runs until 11:59 PM PST on next Thursday, July 19.

Who: Open to everyone, U.S. and international.


(1) "Like" the "Cities of Legend" Facebook page: .

(2) On the "Cities of Legend" Facebook page, post a comment that answers the following question: If you lived in Legend's world, who would you fight for? The Republic, or the rebels?

I will randomly choose one person who picks Republic and one person who picks Rebels to receive the signed copies. Once the contest is over, I will also announce which side won by sheer number of supporters, the Republic or the rebels.

Remember: You MUST post your comment on the "Cities of Legend" page in order to enter!

Thanks all, and I can't wait to see which side wins!

I'm so excited to have you guys play this game and read Prodigy when they come out! Here's the official summary of what Prodigy is about, straight from Legend's official site :

"June and Day arrive in Vegas just as the unthinkable happens: the Elector Primo dies, and his son Anden takes his place. With the Republic edging closer to chaos, the two join a group of Patriot rebels eager to help Day rescue his brother and offer passage to the Colonies. They have only one request: June and Day must assassinate the new Elector.

"It's their chance to change the nation, to give voice to a people silenced for too long.

"But as June realizes this Elector is nothing like his father, she's haunted by the choice ahead. What if Anden is a new beginning? What if revolution must be more than loss and vengeance, anger and blood—-what if the Patriots are wrong?"

Well, that's pretty much it from me. Good luck in the contest, and stay tuned for more game updates!

Anyways, I read Legend 3 times (would be more, except i don't own the book :( and loved it! Now i have to wait forever for Prodigy to come out! (Or for the penguin group to email me back, but IDK if that's gonna happen...)

I'm so freaking excited. I've read Legend so many times it's not even funny. And also, how is the random choice going to be made?

That summary sounds awesome! Possibly better than Legend, methinks.

Aaaah I want to read it so badly! I loved the last one and I really hope they do you and your wonderful series justice with the movie! I hate to see the casting or plot butchered, the author's wishes and most of their original environments gone. My thoughts, hopes and prayers are with you during this exciting time!

leayana Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2012
I just read the the summary and it's so exciting! I'm glad there's a clear division of story from the first one and the second, but still very tied together.
I'm getting pretty excited for it!

(Oh Hi Author of the Coolest book ever!) Thanks! I hope I win!
Jymaru Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hmm... I'm not going to enter :D

The reason is, this book sounds absolutely awesome and 255% worth the money I'm going to spend on it when it comes out
EverViciousYuna Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
I'm entering just like I did for the Advance Copies of Legend. One to frame and I'll be the actual copy when it comes out to read.
Jymaru Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's a good idea, but I'm not really much for ornaments o.o
EverViciousYuna Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
I guess I've just been a fan of Marie for so long that I want to showcase her work.
