If you haven't read Legend yet, STOP READING NOW, find a copy, read it, and then return!  I really liked Legend, so I've been looking forward to reading the sequel since it came out earlier this year.  I hoped it would be good, and I was not disappointed.  It is awesome!  Prodigy is the perfect blend of action and character development.  The plot never lags, and the characters become even more developed and refined.

June and Day are on the run from the Republic after Day's supposed execution at the end of Legend.  Day is suffering from an extreme leg injury which makes their journey to Vegas even more difficult.  If they can make it, they'll join up with the Patriots and do whatever it takes to  get Day's little brother, Eden, back.

But is June prepared to do what the Patriots want?  The Elector Primo is dead, and his son, Ander, is now in power.  The Patriots have a plot to assassinate the new Elector and start a revolution.  June will have to become a double agent to lure the new Elector into the Patriots trap.  She's willing to do it for Day.

Day has no problem with the assassination plot.  He hates the Elector, the Republic, and the entire elite class for all they've taken from him.  Besides, the Patriots have promised to help him get Eden back when all this is over.  Then they can all escape to the Colonies.

Both Day and June had to face revelations and question realities in Legend, but now the world seems to fall apart and reorganize at every turn.  Who can they trust in this world falling apart?  The Patriots?  The Colonies?  Each other?

Read Marie Lu's fabulous sequel to find out!
