Day Alton Wing walks through a futuristic San Francisco, the city in the Republic in which he lives with his brother Eden. He battles a headache, caused by a terminal brain tumor, with hallucinogenic medication and envisions Tess, a close friend, and June Iparis, the Republic soldier and now Princeps-Elect that saved him from execution. He explores the San Francisco nightlife in disguise, attempting to avoid the celebrity he has gained as a political hero for the people.
He is kissing a girl in an alley when June contacts him over the permanent earpiece Day wears. Day is surprised, as they have not spoken in eight months, and even more surprised when June asks him to come to Denver, the capitol city, for an emergency meeting.

She tells him that the Colonies, what used to be the eastern United States, has discovered a plague outbreak that they have traced back to the Republic and believe it is an act of war. They are sentenced to death.

June and Day meet at a government banquet later that evening and quickly enter a conference room with Anden and the two other Princeps-Elects, Serge Carmichael and Mariana Dupree. Anden tells Day that the plague in the Colonies likely accidentally came from Eden, who was previously used by the Republic for experimentation and biological warfare. He asks Day to allow the Republic to experiment on Eden once more to find a cure and prevent invasion by the Colonies. Day refuses. Later that night, Day wakes up from a nightmare with an excruciating headache.
Champion: Legend, Book 3
Eden and their caretaker Lucy try to comfort him and decide to call an ambulance. The medics take Day to the hospital and run tests while Day comes in and out of consciousness.
When he wakes up, the doctors tell him that he has only a few months to live. Commander Jameson gets her attention from her cell first and warns June that they are the same. Shaken, June continues to see Thomas. After the conversation, June goes for a run to clear her head.
She talks with Anden on the track and sees a headline on a JumboTron that announces Day has been admitted to the hospital. He tells her that he has a brain tumor and will likely not survive more than two months. An air raid siren goes off during their conversation, indicating that the Colonies are invading the city. Day and June evacuate with Eden and Anden to an underground bunker where a series of subway trains take citizens out of the city as Colonies ships bomb the city.
Day is angered to learn that poor parts of the city do not have bunkers, and refuses to leave until he is assured that the poor will be given access to the wealthy sector bunkers. June learns that Commander Jameson and Thomas have escaped during the bombing, and Eden tells Day that he wants to give himself to the Republic to find a cure. As June, Anden, Eden, Lucy and Day walk towards the evacuation train, Day and June see Tess being held as a prisoner in a nearby room with a few other Patriots — members of an underground resistance that fights for unification of the Colonies and Republic.
Day demands their release, and they agree to go above ground to fight against the Colonies. June is awed by the Antarctican technology, which assigns every citizen points for performing good deeds. The Antarcticans refuse to aid the Republic unless they give up territory. June and Anden discuss the role of emotion in politics and reminisce about their families, who are both deceased. Meanwhile, Day reconnects with Tess and prepares to attack the Colonies invaders. He and the Patriots place bombs on the landed Colonies ships and disable their weapons.
Champion (Marie Lu's Legend Series #3)
The plague. No matter what happens in the future, no matter where our paths take us, this moment will be ours. I gaze back at her, slowly falling-as I always seem to do-back under her pull. I let out my breath, then run a hand through my hair and lower my head. No matter how much money the Republic throws at me, I will forever be the boy from the streets.
