Prodigy by Marie Lu Review
Reading Level: Young Adult
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile
Second book in the Legend series
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?
In this highly-anticipated sequel, Lu delivers a breathtaking thriller with high stakes and cinematic action.
Do you have any idea how long I've waited for this book? It feels like forever. Believe me when I say it did not disappoint! It was an amazing sequel. I threw myself into it and didn't stop till I was done.
This continues June and Day's story. They have arrived in Las Vegas just as Elector Primo dies and his son takes over. The two soon join the Patriot rebels in hopes of saving Day's brother.
I could fan girl about Day and June for the rest of my life. Not only are they both individually amazing characters but put them together and their completely badass! One thing I really liked was since they had such different upbringings they have different personalities. It was a little annoying how they doubted each other when apart. But, I loved how willing they were to do anything for each other. That might be my favorite thing about them. They care so much for each other. I don't just mean the kissy parts. Throughout the whole book they took care and were always thinking about each other. They have an amazing relationship that I hope never goes away.
This cannot be compared to any other book in the world. It has the most unique storyline. I seriously read the day away and then I didn't realize it was almost over. I couldn't put it down. There was so much action. I had no idea where the story was going. It had all the twists in the world. All the suspense and tension between characters made it epic. Let me just warn you the ending is not okay at all! And now I have to wait a year for the third book. I'm gonna die. So if you haven't read this one your missing out! Read it and then we can all wait together :).
