Prodigy by Marie Lu

Genre: sci-fi, dystopian
Series and Book #: Legend Trilogy #2
Pages: 371

After escaping from the Republic’s stronghold of Los Angeles, 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 pair joins a group of Patriot rebels eager to help Day rescue his brother and who offer them passage to the Colonies. The Patriots have only one request—June and Day must assassinate the new Elector.
It’s the chance to change the nation, to give voice to a people silence for too long. But as June realizes this Elector is mothering 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?

The sequel to Legend was a thrilling, action-packed novel! The true villains are revealed, Day and June's relationship is pushed to the brink, and the ending is not what I was expecting at all.

June is used to not revealing her true feelings because she's be trained to keep her emotions in check. But she's so compassionate, loving, and loyal. She loves Day, even though he doesn't realize just how much she does. His ring meant so much to her and she didn't have the capacity to show him that what he'd made out of paper clips was something more special than all the diamonds in the Republic. She's so smart. She always thinks before she acts which is why I think Day should have trusted her more when she said the Elector was someone they could trust. Day was blinded by his hatred for the Republic. I wish he would have trusted June more. It was so hard not to hit him over the head when he claimed he and June could never work because of her status vs. his. Honestly, if June didn't feel the same way as Day, she wouldn't have pushed so hard to keep them together. 


I need the third book. Do June and Day stay together? Does Razor get away? How does the Republic react to Anden? Will the Colonies come back with a vengeance? Is Tess good or bad? Will Day live or die? WHAT WILL HAPPEN???!!!! I have high expectations for the finale of this trilogy.

The Cover: I like how its spray-painted on a wall. It makes it look like someone purposefully put it there as a sign of rebellion against the Republic.
