Prodigy by Marie Lu
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?
June and Day are on the run, trying to meet up with the Patriots. But the Patriot base is nothing like they thought it’d be. And June doesn’t trust its leader. And just as June and Day share a long-awaited kiss, June is sent back to the Republic in a dangerous plot to assassinate the new Elector.
Fast-paced and full of suspense and intrigue, Prodigy is a fantastic sequel to last year’s Legend. Fans of dystopia and adventure won’t want to miss this series. With plenty of mystery, conspiracy, and a bit of romance – the excitement builds to a climactic and surprising end. And a mild cliffhanger will leave readers wanting more. I have high hopes for the final installment in this thrilling trilogy.
Prodigy will release from Putnam Juvenile on January 29, 2013.
