DISCUSS: ‘Rebel’ by Marie Lu! (SPOILERS!)

A fan discussion of ‘Rebel’ by Marie Lu. (Caution: Spoilers Ahead!)


The following article and comments contain MAJOR SPOILERS from Marie Lu’s Rebel, including important plot points and character developments.



A summary of Rebel by Marie Lu? Intense! And different. Whereas the earlier books in the Lu’s Legend saga tell us the dual stories of Day and June, Rebel is very much a story about brothers.

Not only that, but the setting and conflict were very different too. We finally got a deep-dive into Ross City and we were introduced to one of Marie Lu’s most memorable villains yet.

So what do you think? Everyone’s bound to have a lot of thoughts about Rebel. Let’s talk.

Leave your thoughts and feelings in the comment section to engage with other fans!

  • We finally get to explore Ross City! What are your thoughts on the level system?

  • How do you feel about Day’s and Eden’s rocky relationship? Do you think Day is too protective of Eden? Does Eden not appreciate Day?
